BINE Information Service ...

... provides the missing links between research and applications; we report on new materials, systems and components, innovative concepts and methods, and on the knowledge to be gained from testing new technologies in practice. We gather together expertise in one place and ensure that planners, investors and users have up-to-date knowledge – and all this in an independent, experienced and critical manner! We cover a broad range of topics: planning of energy-efficient new buildings; integration of heat recovery, insulation and ventilation technologies; optimisation of energy processes in industry and commercial businesses; use of renewable energy sources; development of new energy concepts ...

Diesel engine with innovative steel pistons

Car engines are becoming increasingly compact with a greater specific power. This reduces the weight, moving masses and fuel consumption. In the engine, however, the temperatures and pressures rise for individual components. This causes conventional pistons made of aluminium to reach their limits. The new BINE Projektinfo brochure entitled "Steel pistons for more efficient diesel engines" (14/2016) presents a cooling concept for engine pistons using a liquid metal alloy. Compared with aluminium, steel offers greater strength against thermal and mechanical loads.  more...

Transporting more electricity through new lines

The volume of electricity generated by wind energy and photovoltaic systems is increasing in the German power grid. This electricity has to be transported over long distances to urban areas and industrial centres. Newly developed high-temperature conductors now offer a way of increasing the maximum power capacity that can be transmitted through existing power lines. The BINE Projektinfo brochure entitled "The hotline in the grid" (13/2016) presents the new transmission lines.  more...

Generating wind power in forested regions

In Germany, nearly half of the sites particularly suitable for wind turbines are found in forested low mountain ranges. This is especially true for the southern half of the country. Expanding wind power in these regions has the advantage that the wind power will be generated close to urban areas and industrial centres. The BINE Projektinfo brochure entitled "Measuring wind potential in low mountain ranges" (12/2016) presents the long-term measurements made on a 200-metre-high met mast near Kassel. The results are helping to improve meteorological models, tailor the design of wind turbine components and further develop the laser-based LiDAR method.  more...

Improving heating-based components with foam

The energy efficiency of heat exchangers, convectors and cooling elements can be improved even further. Open-pore structures made of metal foam, which have good thermal conductivity and a large surface, offer interesting possibilities here. The BINE Projektinfo brochure entitled "Metal foam – a material for heat engineering" (11/2016) presents the development work for these materials. The aim is to optimise the manufacturing process, reduce costs and test the materials on test rigs. The material properties of the different alloys will be recorded in a database.  more...
