Improving discharge performance of adsorbed natural gas vehicular storage systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Preliminary results of a feasibility study on the possibility of employing the hot exhaust gas to heat an adsorptive natural gas (ANG) storage cylinder during vehicle operation is presented. Energy is transferred by forced convection from the exhaust gas to the carbon bed in a jacketed reservoir. The results presented here for a regular carbon bed show that the adsorption tank can attain isothermal performance with perfectly feasible exhaust temperatures.
