  • Fuel Cell Voltage Monitoring Considerations

    Knowing what’s happening inside a fuel cell is a critical function, especially as fuel cells are continuing to be developed. One important aspect of this is to measure the voltageof each cell in a stack. Although this may sound trivial, it can be more complex and more expensive than it may at first appear due to high voltages, high channel counts,communication types, etc. There ...

  • Security, trust, and QoS in next-generation control and communication for large power systems

    The present communication architecture supporting control of the electric power grid makes it difficult to use the wealth of data collected at high rates in substations, retarding their use in new applications for controlling the grid. A flexible, real-time data network would make it possible to use these data for many more control and protection applications, potentially increasing the grid's ...

  • Optimal location of DG for maintaining distribution system stability: a hybrid technique

    To enhance the distribution power quality and maintains the voltage stability is a challenging tasks in the complex distribution network. This can be achieved through the distributed generation (DG). In this paper, a hybrid technique has been proposed which improves the distribution stability by allocating the DG at the optimal place. This technique uses the artificial neural network (ANN) and ...

  • The performance and emission characteristics of a diesel engine using preheated Kusum oil and Kusum diesel blend

    Rapidly depleting conventional petroleum resources have prompted research for alternative fuels. Among various possible options for internal combustion engines, fuels derived from triglycerides (vegetable oils/animal fats) are a promising substitute for diesel fuel. Vegetable oils pose some detrimental characteristics like high viscosity and low volatility compared to diesel fuel. In the present ...

  • Fault characteristics in electrical equipment

    Proper design and installation of electrical equipment minimizes the chance of electrical faults. Faults occur when the insulation system is compromised and current is allowed to flow through an unintentional path. IEEE Std 493 Recommended Practice for the Design of Reliable Industrial and Commercial Power Systems1 publishes data that reports that the vast majority of faults are classified as ...

  • Museum of Science – Boston - Case Study

    Each year, millions of visitors come to the Museum of Science – in Boston, only Fenway Park draws more people. This nationally-renowned center dates to the mid-1800s as a resource to teach and demonstrate how technology and science affects daily living. The museum enjoys a high-profile location along the Charles River, between Boston and Cambridge. Facilities include an IMAX theater and a 2 ...

  • Generation Gap: Wind Opens Big Lead over Nuclear in China

    In China, wind power is leaving nuclear behind. Electricity output from China’s wind farms exceeded that from its nuclear plants for the first time in 2012, by a narrow margin. Then in 2013, wind pulled away—outdoing nuclear by 22 percent. The 135 terawatt-hours of ...

  • After Record 2012, World Wind Power Set to Top 300,000 Megawatts in 2013

    Even amid policy uncertainty in major wind power markets, wind developers still managed to set a new record for installations in 2012, with 44,000 megawatts of new wind capacity worldwide. With total capacity exceeding 280,000 megawatts, wind farms generate carbon-free electricity in more than 80 countries, 24 of which have at least 1,000 megawatts. At the European level of consumption, the ...

  • Rotork valve automation at solar power plants - Case Study

    Overview Spain is now the world's largest generator of electricity from solar power plants. Spanish solar energy plants utilise parabolic trough technology combined with a thermal storage system using molten salt batteries to maximise their power generating capacity. The parabolic trough is constructed as a long parabolic mirror with a Dewar tube running its length at the focal point. ...

  • World Wind Power Poised to Bounce Back after Slowing in 2013

    At the end of 2013, the wind farms installed in more than 85 countries had a combined generating capacity of 318,000 megawatts, which would be enough to meet the residential electricity needs of the European Union’s 506 million people. New data from the Global Wind Energy Council show that wind developers built 35,000 megawatts of new generating capacity worldwide in 2013. This was down ...

  • New energy economy emerging in the United States

    As fossil fuel prices rise, as oil insecurity deepens, and as concerns about climate change cast a shadow over the future of coal, a new energy economy is emerging in the United States. The old energy economy, fueled by oil, coal, and natural gas, is being replaced by one powered by wind, solar, and geothermal energy. The transition is moving at a pace and on a scale that we could not have ...

  • Offshore Wind Development Picking Up Pace

    Wind power is the world’s leading source of renewable electricity, excluding hydropower, with 238,000 megawatts of capacity installed at the start of 2012. Thus far, almost all of this wind power has been tapped on land; worldwide just 4,600 megawatts of offshore wind farms were operating as of mid-2012. Offshore wind capacity is growing quickly, however, expanding nearly six-fold ...

  • Smarter grids, appliances, and consumers

    More and more utilities are beginning to realize that building large power plants just to handle peak daily and seasonal demand is a very costly way of managing an electricity system. Existing electricity grids are typically a patchwork of local grids that are simultaneously inefficient, wasteful, and dysfunctional in that they often are unable, for example, to move electricity surpluses to areas ...

  • Water vapour permeation measurement for PV Solar Cell packaging

    With fears of carbon dioxide causing global warming and diminishing supplies of fossil fuels, a looming energy crisis is affecting all countries.  As a consequence, a great deal of world-wide effort is going into the development of alternative energy technologies.  At present, wind, hydro and geothermal are becoming well established with more niche roles for tidal and solar. The latter ...

  • Solar`s Time to Rise and Shine.

    Photovoltaic efficiency records are being shattered, thanks to recent advances in materials science. Last month, a researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colo., loaded a postage stamp–sized solar cell onto a tray and placed it under a high-intensity pulse solar simulator. The simulator flashed a 2.5 millisecond pulse of light, and 19 mirrors reflected the ...
