Small scale heat and power plant (2015)
Assoc Prof Sultan’s current work in the area of gas expander (which replaces turbines for small scale) feeds into the eventual outcome he is hoping to achieve with this project. Expanders are the most important part of such plants and their efficiencies will make or break the idea. Assoc Prof Sultan has a PhD student working on expanders, and an outstanding student (with an excellent publication list) is applying to enrol in a PhD program on the topic in January. He has also received serious interest from CSIRO to fund the expander project but the new budget has put this on hold.
