Title: A high performance turbo power system
Abstract: The presentation introduces research in a high performance turbo power system. Such a system features air bearings and ceramic turbine, making it superior to conventional turbomachinery in fast acceleration, high speed, wear free, and low in maintenance. The research in air bearings includes design, fabrication and tests, which show excellent performance as expected. Research in fabrication of high precision ceramic turbines is explained. Alumina and zirconia ceramic turbine wheels are produced. As an important application of the high performance microrotor, the research into development of microgas turbine engines is presented. Microengines have much higher energy to weight ratio than batteries. They can be developed to replace batteries. Microengines can also be used directly as drives of machines, such as micro air vehicles. The high performance rotors improve the thermal efficiency of microturbine engines by providing higher pressure and lower friction. The design of microgas turbines are based on CFD and thermal dynamics. The assembly, balancing and test were carried out. The fire test of a microgas turbine engine is demonstrated. Then, the development of finger top microegines is explained. Much research work is focused in microfabrication of high temperature resistant materials. Prototypes of finger top engines are illustrated. The interest from public in the microengines shows a brilliant potential market.
Prof. Osman Adiguzel
Dr Osam Adiguzel was born in 1952, Nigde, Turkey. He graduated from Department of Physics, Ankara University, Turkey in 1974 and received PhD- degree from Dicle University, Diyarbakir-Turkey in Solid State Physics with experimental studies on diffusionless phase transformations in Ti-Ta alloys in 1980. He studied at Surrey University, Guildford, UK, as a post doctoral research scientist in 1986-1987, and his studies focused on shape memory alloys. He worked as research assistant, 1975-80, at Dicle University, Diyarbakir, Turkey. He shifted to Firat University in 1980, and became professor in 1996, and He has already been working as professor. He published over 45 papers in international and national journals, He joined over 60 conferences and symposia in international and national level with contributions of oral or poster, and He supervised 5 PhD- theses and 3 M.Sc theses. Dr. Adiguzel served his directorate of Graduate School of Natural and Applied Sciences, Firat University in 1999-2004. He received a certificate which is being awarded to him and his experimental group in recognition of significant contribution of 2 patterns to the Powder Diffraction File – Release 2000. The ICDD (International Centre for Diffraction Data) also appreciates cooperation of his group and interest in Powder Diffraction File. Scientific fields of Dr. Adiguzel are as follow: Martensitic phase transformations and applications to copper-based shape memory alloys, molecular dynamics simulations, alloy modeling, x-ray diffraction, and electron microscopy.
