  • Experts in combustion control - Expert Paper

    Fired heaters are integral to hydrocarbon processing (HP). Specifically designed for the reaction of fuel and air to produce extremely high gas temperatures, heaters transfer this energy to potentially highly flammable process fluids via heat exchangers. They consume large quantities of fuel, produce large quantities of emissions and are a potential safety hazard to personnel and plant. However, ...

  • The Energy-saving and Environmental Protection of LED Tri-proof Luminaires Have Made Great Contributions to the Processing Industry

    The three-proof lamps made of PC material are better material style, even if they are stepped on by foot, they will not break, and they are very durable. However, the transparency of this material is not as good as that of ABS lamps. The lamp made of ABS material is very brittle and crackable, but the transparency of this material is very good and bright. PMMA materials are cheaper, but less ...

  • Growing Market for Prepay Energy in North America

    WHAT IS PREPAY ENERGY? Prepay energy is a voluntary bill pay option for consumers to pay ahead for energy consumption in the future. Some consumers appreciate the convenience and flexibility of the option. Others appreciate an alternative to security deposits or payment arrangements. Once consumers begin using prepay energy, they tend to reduce their energy consumption resulting in dollar ...

  • Uncertainty, carbon dioxide concentrations and fossil fuel use

    This paper evaluates the atmospheric CO2 impact of recent energy scenarios. The impact of the expected four-fold increase in energy use is compared with that reflecting a reduced fossil fuel-burning scenario. Measurement of the alternative impact is needed using an econometric modelling approach to the traditional atmospheric equilibrium model. Prescriptions are given regarding the benefits of ...

  • Simulation-based evaluation of tidal current power output characteristics

    Tidal current is considered to be one of the promising alternative green energy resources. This paper introduces a simulation based methodology to evaluate tidal current power output characteristics, including capacity factor, and power production variability patterns. Power variability analysis is crucial to grid integration systems design. The proposed methodology is applied to the well known ...

  • Cointegration and the demand for energy in Fiji

    This paper applies alternative time series techniques such as general to specific (GETS) and Johansen maximum likelihood (JML) to estimate the long-run income and price elasticities of demand for energy for Fiji. We also test for the causal relationship between energy consumption, GDP and energy prices using the Granger causality tests. Our results imply that there is a uni-directional causality ...

  • Studies on competitiveness of space and terrestrial solar power plants using global energy model

    Global energy model GEM-10R has been used to analyse the possible conditions and scale of using space and terrestrial solar power plants in the long-term perspective (up to the end of the 21st century). Different external conditions, when these alternative energy technologies may be feasible, have been revealed and discussed.Keywords: global energy model, space-based power systems, lunar power ...

  • The informational content of oil and natural gas prices in energy fund performance

    This paper explores whether the informational content of oil and gas prices has an impact on energy mutual fund returns. We first re–visit the relationship between oil and gas prices and energy index returns; our findings confirm that better energy index performance is associated with oil and gas price increases. Using the Fama and MacBeth (1973) two–stage regressions, we find that the ...

  • The diffusion of innovation and perceived risk for the adoption of alternative energy vehicles

    Many researchers have studied alternative energy issues from a policy or industry viewpoint, but few have explored the consumer's beliefs and opinions. Since most applications of alternative energy are being developed for the consumer market, the consumer's acceptance and adoption of these new fuels and alternative energy vehicles are key factors to consider. This research studies the consumer's ...

  • Systematic study of the subshell effect at Z = 64 and the neutron discontinuity at N = 88–90

    A new expression in the form of product rule with two known parameters (R4/2 * B(E2)↑) is proposed. The correspondence of the absolute B(E2)↑ values, energy ratio R4/2 and their product (R4/2 * B(E2)↑) versus the proton number Z is illustrated. It explains fairly well the shape phase transition at ...
