Research title: Decarbonising the heating sector in Scotland - 5th generation heating Networks

Research Summary

In the field of thermodynamic analysis, I work on low-temperature power cycles, waste heat recovery, refrigeration, combined cycles such as ORC-VCR, CHP, CCHP, different geothermal power cycles, etc. I did the simulations of different projects by MATLAB and EES (Engineering-Equation-Solver). In addition to thermodynamic analysis, numerical analyses of hydrodynamic and heat transfer phenomena are also a part of those things that I enthusiastically deal with. Having a valued experience working with ANSYS-FLUENT and FORTRAN enables me to broaden my knowledge about my projects.

In my Ph.D. studies, I'm working on Flexible heat pumps.
