Brief description, advantages, further prospects for application.

The result of the research is a universal mathematical model of energy generating thermoacoustic systems with a load in the form of bidirectional turbines.

Based on the proposed mathematical model, the characteristics of energy saving systems for different types of power plants were calculated. The results of theoretical studies made it possible to predict the possible power of TATG, to determine the effectiveness of the introduction of thermoacoustic energy generating systems.

The obtained scientific results allow us to design and manufacture energy-generating thermoacoustic systems for the utilization of low-temperature thermal emissions from power plants of transport, industry and energy with a capacity of 102–103 kW.

On the subject of the GDR, within the framework of joint Ukrainian-Chinese research projects in 2019 – 2020, GDR 0119U103202 “Improving the efficiency of power plants through the use of thermoacoustic technologies” is being carried out.

The scientific results of the research were used to prepare dissertations in the specialties 05.05.03 – Engines and power plants and 05.13.22 – Project and program management, the term for defending dissertations is 2018-2019.

On the subject of the GDR, the defense of a doctoral dissertation is planned for 2020 – Korobko V.V. “Scientific and technical foundations for the utilization of low-grade heat of ship power plants by thermoacoustic technologies”, the thesis was submitted to the Special Council D 38.060.01 NUK.

The results of research are used in the educational process.

Computer control systems for thermoacoustic systems and TATM are the subject of master’s works of the Educational and Scientific Institute of Automation and Electrical Engineering of the NUK, these works consider the use of CBS and software in diagnostic systems for industrial installations.
