Best paper award at the ASME TurboExpo 2020 for Patrick Wagner
Congratulations to former PhD and postdoc of LAMD Dr. Patrick Wagner! He has received the best paper award at the ASME TurboExpo 2020 for his paper “Theoretical and Experimental Investigation of a 34 Watt Radial-Inflow Steam Turbine with Partial-Admission”.
This paper presents experimental data of one of the smallest steam turbine tested ever. It was used to drive a fan for recirculating the anode off-gas of a solid oxide fuel cell.
More information about his results can be found on: https://actu.epfl.ch/news/more-efficient-longer-lasting-solid-oxide-fuel-c-5/
The project was co-financed by the Canton of Vaud through its “100 million for renewable energies and energy efficiency” program and by the Horizon 2020 Research and InnovationProgramme under Grant Agreement No. 815284.
