A Slovak university is looking for partners and coordinating partners for HORIZON-CL5-2022-D3-03-01: Innovative components and/or sub-systems for CSP plants and/or concentrating solar thermal installations. The aim of the project is to build an ecological electricity generator that uses the energy of the sun. The device will be built on the basis of a linear, parabolic concentrator of solar energy and a Stirling electric generator.
The Stirling engine is an external combustion thermal engine. The performance and rated power of these machines is limited by the intensity of heat transfer between working fluid and external heat sources. This is a technical issue that limits development of such systems due to the fact that with the increase of the size of the device, the amount of the medium (volume of the working space) increases with the third power of the characteristic dimension, while the external surface of the device (and thus the heat transfer area available to contact which external heat sources) only with the second power. These engines are much larger than those with internal heat supply (combustion), which limits the practical power of Stirling engines to several dozen kW, preventing the widespread use of these interesting designs. Therefore, in the applied project, it is planned to eliminate this problem by replacing one high-power motor with a battery of tiny motors with a power of several to several dozen kW.
The university with its sixty-five years of history belongs to one of the leading educational and scientific institutions in Slovakia. With its rich tradition it occupies a significant place among Slovak universities. This fact is not only connected with the number of students or offer of interesting and quality study programmes, but the university also has significant research and foreign activities. At present, there are about 8 000 students being educated at seven faculties in 129 accredited study programmes in all forms and degrees of university studies. In the field of science and research. University is involved in the solution of nearly 200 national and 65 international scientific projects and organises about 60 scientific and professional events annually. The results of science and research activities of the university have a major influence not only on educational activities, but also on the development of international cooperation or application in practice. University has already established a partnership with the Silesian University of Technology (SUT) which is the oldest technical university in Upper Silesia and one of the largest in the country. The main team working on this project is profiling in the field of reducing the energy intensity of technological processes, in the economical use of energy in the form of optimization of energy transfer in machinery and equipment for industry, energy, construction, agriculture, transport and in equipment for creating and protecting the living and working environment. International, grant and institutional projects are being solved, focusing mainly on:
• solution to reduce the energy intensity of technological processes by using heat recovery from low-potential massive heat sources,
• solution of modern ventilation and cooling systems new progressive methods of construction of thermal equipment based on the use of low-potential geothermal heat pumped from deep wells using heat pipes
• design of sophisticated heating, heating and ventilation equipment and systems
• the use of renewable energy sources in their transformation into heat and electricity
