  • Dutch exchange looks to gas to retain independence

    To arm itself against the ongoing consolidation in the European energy trading market, the Anglo-Dutch gas and power exchange APX has moved ahead of its rivals into gas trading. ‘The sense of urgency to create an integrated market is bigger in gas than in power’, says ceo Bert den ...

  • Case study - Agiba Gas Power Generation

    Proserve has recently carried out a power generation project with Agiba Petroleum Company in the western desert of Egypt to utilize the waste free flare gas instead of the very expensive fossil diesel fuel to power the oil production wells ‘pumps. The project faced several technical challenges. The associated gas has a low methane number” less than 45”,  which necessitated ...

  • Fuel for thought: European energy market restructuring and the future of power generation gas use

    The liberalisation of the West European electricity and gas markets, technological developments in power technology and environmental policies are expected to stimulate continued strong growth in power generation gas consumption. This paper examines the importance of three frequently disregarded considerations in the analysis of expanded gas use in power generation. These include: (a) better use ...

  • Fast solution technique for unit commitment by particle swarm optimisation and genetic algorithm

    In solving the Unit Commitment (UC) problem, two types of decision variables need to be determined: the start/shut down status and the output of power generation. Efficiently calculating the optimal commitment (on/off) and Economic Dispatch (ED) generations of the units at a sequence of times in the scheduling period is known as a challenge issue. In this paper, the proposed integrated PSO/GA ...

  • Why Choose a Gas Power Washer?

    While buying a power washing system, many people wonder if they should invest in a gas pressure washer or not. All pressure washing systems have their own unique set of benefits, and gas power washing machines are no exception. For indoor cleaning tasks, electrical pressure washing systems are generally used. This is because they do not release any exhaust fumes, and are relatively less noisy. ...

  • A real options approach to investing in the first nuclear power plant under cost uncertainty: comparison with natural gas power plant for the Tunisian case

    This paper uses a real options approach to present a method for evaluating the first Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) investment in Tunisia in 2020. The evaluating model integrates the value of real options: option to wait in the standard discount cash flow analysis. According to the IAEA (2007), starting the first stage of a nuclear power programme makes it possible to construct the first NPP in second ...

  • Understanding and improving energy conversion systems with the aid of exergy–based methods

    Exergy–based methods are powerful tools for developing, evaluating and improving an energy conversion system. Conventional exergy–based analyses have limitations, which are significantly reduced by the so–called advanced analyses. The latter evaluate: (a) the interactions among components of the overall system, and (b) the real potential for improving a system component. The main objective of ...

  • The globalisation of Russian energy companies: a way out of the financial crisis?

    This paper analyses the emergence of global energy companies in Russia. Within the framework of the history and rules of privatisation, the unfavourable investment climate, and the distortions of the internal Russian market, a dual structure of the Russian energy sector developed. Economic survival at present is strongly linked with internationalisation of business activities for one group of ...

  • Methane Number

    Did you know that the methane number of a gas provides an indication of the knock tendency of a fuel? It is a product of the different constituent gases within the natural gas, particularly the proportions of methane, ethane, propane and butane. Understanding the knock resistance is important when specificing an engine for a gas-powered ...

  • Convenience Of A Natural Gas Generator For Homes

    One of the most popular and convenient ways to prepare for power outages is purchasing a natural gas generator for homes. The electrical grid is vulnerable to a wide variety of issues including powerful storms that can cause extensive power outages. In a hurricane-prone state like Florida, it is only a matter of time before a hurricane or tropical storm leaves your home in the dark. The ...

  • Energy and exergy analysis of a gas turbine power plant in Algeria

    An exergy analysis of a twin ABB GT13E2 Gas Turbines (GTs) power plant (2 ? 146.2 MW) is presented in this paper. This plant is running since 2004 at F'Krina in the northeastern part of Algeria. The analysis was performed by the flow-sheet programme, 'Cycle-Tempo'. At off-design load (83%), the plant and its apparatus conserve nearly the same design load performances. However, the performance of ...

  • Regional differences and convergence of resources carrying capacity: a comparison of nine provinces and municipalities in China

    This paper applies an improved resources carrying capacity model established by Huang and He (2012), and estimates a single and composite resources carrying capacity, and uses sigma convergence, beta convergence and club convergence to investigate the dynamics of resources carrying capacity in nine provinces and municipalities in China from 1978 to 2008. Our results show that there exists time ...

  • Vacuum assisted ion injection using deuterium gas for nano-power cell production

    The vacuum-assisted Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) is investigated for power cell analysis. This nuclear reaction at room temperature conditions can give an empirical scenario. The experiment of Iwamura et al. (2002) is investigated for the theoretical analysis using a computational simulation. The vacuum can perform enough suction in order to react with the layers and the injection ions. ...

  • Thermodynamic modelling of three–stage combined cycle power systems utilising ammonia–water mixture as a working fluid in bottoming cycle

    In this study, two three–stage combined power cycles with ammonia–water mixture in bottoming cycle are introduced; one with variable ammonia fraction and the other with constant ammonia fraction. Energy and exergy analyses are carried out and optimal parameters of the proposed cycles are compared with the conventional power cycles. The second law efficiency of three–stage cycles with variable and ...

  • Turbine Inspection

    Recent advances in natural gas exploration and extraction technology have led to skyrocketing projections of the amount of recoverable natural gas within US borders. This energy boom will result in the expanded use of gas-fired power plants to provide electricity to US homes and businesses over the coming decades. Not only does this mean cleaner and more abundant energy for the US environment and ...
