As an engineer with a passion for carbon reduction and global warming effects,I have enlisted myself in a PhD program to help with this issue. With growing energy demand due to increase in population and interaction between people of different locations, the main source of carbon in the atmosphere is from energy generation plants such as a Natural Gas Power Plant.
The reduction of carbon emissions from this plant will play a vital role in the effective move towards a greener and less carbon polluted environment and inherently reduce the global warming effects.
My current project deals with the modelling of emissions from a gas turbine and observe the effect of the emissions on the efficiency and performance of the gas turbine. The main aim of this project is to look for ways to optimise the current gas turbine systems being used in power plants to be able to operate at a similar or higher efficiency while having carbon reduction techniques implemented.
