Thermochemical Humidity Detection in Harsh or Non-Steady Environments

Devon Bridgeman, Francis Tsow, Xiaojun Xian, Qinan Chang, Yongming Liu, Erica Forzani
2017 Sensors  
These new methods offer opportunities in either chemically harsh environments or in rapidly changing environments.  ...  On the other hand, the thermographic method can be applied with a disposable non-contact sensing element, which is a low-cost upkeep option in environments where damage or fouling is inevitable.  ...  We describe this as a non-steady environment because relevant changes in humidity are occurring on timeframes of less than 1 s.  ...

Review of technology: Thermochemical energy storage for concentrated solar power plants

Cristina Prieto, Patrick Cooper, A. Inés Fernández, Luisa F. Cabeza
2016 Renewable & Sustainable Energy Reviews  
Sensible and latent heat storage are known technologies in CSP, but thermochemical storage (TCS) is still very much at laboratory level.  ...  Those systems are based in three redox reactions, sulfur-based cycles, metal oxide reduction-oxidation cycles, and perovskitetype hydrogen production, and metal oxide non-redox cycles due to their similarity  ...  Sulfur and sulfuric acid do not require temperature-controlled environments or pressurized vessels.  ...
