Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Heat transfer is almost always accompanied by the generation, storage, transportation, and recovery of energy. An in-depth understanding of the physical mechanism of heat transfer has further promoted its wide application in energy systems. By enhancing heat transfer and improving the utilization and recovery rate of the energy system, the sustainable utilization of energy can be strengthened. Given the significance of heat transfer and energy systems, this Special Issue will focus on topics of emerging technologies and research on heat transfer and energy systems as outlined below.

This topical issue is dedicated to the frontiers of heat transfer and energy systems, ranging from emerging technologies and research on heat transfer to relevant industrial applications of energy systems.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Enhanced heat transfer;
  • Phase change heat transfer;
  • Radiative heat transfer;
  • Energy storage;
  • Thermal management;
  • Thermal metamaterials.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

This research paper investigates the optimum engine operating parameters, namely engine load, palm biodiesel, and ethanol percentage, by using a regression analysis approach. The study was conducted on a single-cylinder, four-stroke diesel engine at varying engine loads and constant speed. A general full factorial design was established using Minitab software (Version 17) for three different input factors with their varying levels. The test results based on the regression model are used to optimize the engine load and percentages of palm biodiesel and ethanol in diesel–biodiesel–ethanol ternary blends. The analysis of variance (ANOVA) revealed a significant effect on performance and emission parameters for all three factors at a 95% confidence level. From the regression study, optimum brake thermal efficiency (BTE), nitrogen oxide (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), and unburnt hydrocarbon (UHC) emissions were found to be 12.57%, 436.2 ppm, 0.03 vol.%, and 79.2 ppm, respectively, at 43.43% engine load, 11.06% palm biodiesel, and 5% ethanol share. The findings of this study can be used to optimize engine performance and emission characteristics. The regression analysis approach presented in this study can be used as a tool for future research on optimizing engine performance and emission parameters. Full article
