The publication with report on measured pressure gain from Finno Exergy’s test unit, Experimental demonstration of a novel deflagration-based pressure gain combustion technology, is now available from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. See more about the 2020 AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum and Exposition on https://www.aiaa.org/propulsionenergy.

A Finno Exergy paper was accepted to be presented at the AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum 2020

April
2020

The event shall take place at New Orleans (USA) 22-24 of August (if corona will not cancel the event). The topic of the paper is “Experimental demonstration of a novel deflagration-based pressure gain combustion technology”. The Team is excited about this since it will be the first ever presentation at a major venue released by Finno Exergy. Link to the event → https://www.aiaa.org/propulsionenergy

There is a small but important change in the name of the company

November 2019

Finno Energy now is Finno Exergy. Exergy is the maximum useful work available from a thermodynamic system. Finno Exergy pressure gain combustion system has been designed to to extract maximum amount of useful energy out of fuel. Exergy is right at the heart of our action. Finno Energy became Finno Exergy in September 2019.

Finno Energy is presenting a poster at The International Constant Volume and Detonation Combustion Workshop

2019

On 17-18 August 2019, Finno Energy is presenting a poster at The International Constant Volume and Detonation Combustion Workshop organized by Pressure Gain Combustion Committee. The venue is Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. And on 19-21 August 2019, Finno Energy is attending The AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum in Indianapolis, Indiana.

U.S. Department of Energy has published a very interesting technical report

June
2019

U.S. Department of Energy has published a very interesting technical report about applying pressure gain combustion to combined cycle power generation. The paper states that “PGC technology represents a potential disruptive change in power plant efficiency that is not achievable through standard gas turbine technology”.

Finno Energy has made various new simulations

April
2019

Finno Energy has made various new simulations of its process in different sizes and gas turbine applications. The results are excellent, and they are proving the flexibility of Finno Energy PGC technology.

Finno Energy started a project with a major gas turbine manufacturer

November 2018

The goal of the project is to show the potential of Finno Energy’s pressure gain combustion applied to their technology.

First coupled simulation with GT-POWER and CONVERGE CFD was run on Finno Energy’s digital development platform

August
2018

The simulated pressure trace matched the pressure trace that was measured from the test unit. Simulations with the new design are giving promising results about the technology’s potential.

The testing of the updated test unit has shown some really promising results

March
2018

New record in pressure gain was measured with the new setup.

Finno Energy updated their digital development

February
2018

Finno Energy updated their digital development platform with an in-house High-Performance Computing (HPC) facilities. The facilities are used to run CONVERGE CFD simulations of our process. The new HPC cluster consists of 144 cores.

Finno Energy did a major update to the test unit

December 2017

The updated test unit is now ready to be tested. The team is waiting for excellent results from the tests.
