  • Keeping Melbourne Moving

    Melbourne is the second most populous city in Australia and has a rail network of superlatives. Sulzer’s service center in Melbourne currently maintains a fleet of more than 2500 traction motors and motor/alternator sets. But Sulzer’s offering goes even beyond electrical repairs and upgrades of rotating machines. When Melbourne needed new impedance bonds for an improvement of its rail ...

  • Transformer Oil Hydrotreating case study

    Hydrogenation of waste transformer oil (electrical insulating oils) can produce an oil product that is far better in quality and yield in comparison with fixed bed clay adsorption or reaction with sodium metal. This is proven at Sequoia- client’s facility in Midwestern USA. The 5 million gallon/year throughput naphthenic oil hydrotreater produces oil free of PCBs (polychlorobiphenyls ...

  • Correlation of dielectric model parameters with experimental results based on PDC, RV and loss factor measurements for high voltage capacitors

    To improve the reliability and quality of electric power systems, preventive diagnosis and regular maintenance of high voltage capacitors are required. Dielectric response measurements in both time domain and frequency domain are potential tools for assessing the condition of dielectric of high voltage capacitors. Modern measurements in time domain include polarisation and depolarisation current ...

  • Thermodynamic analysis of a pyroprocessing unit of a cement plant: a case study

    The cement industry is one of the most intensive energy and cost industries in the world that consumes about 3800 MJ per tonne of cement produced. To achieve an effective energy management scheme, energy and exergy analyses were employed on the pyroprocessing unit of Gaziantep Cement Plant in Turkey. Energy and exergy efficiencies are determined to be 52.2% and 35.9%, respectively. Application of ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Elantas enjoys significant steam savings with GEM

    Thermal Energy International Inc. is pleased to announce that ELANTAS Deatech S.r.l, a member of the global specialty chemical group Altana AG, and a leading producer of insulating materials for the electrical and electronics industry, has revealed that it is achieving significant savings in steam consumption at its site in Ascoli Piceno, Italy following the installation of Thermal Energy ...

  • What!! - No energy manager?

    Though energy prices seem to be subsiding, the fact is that energy costs will be rising – soon and especially in Pennsylvania when electric rate caps begin to expire at the end of this year.Most large commercial and industrial firms are preparing. They typically employ energy management personnel that focus on reducing energy usage by procuring energy at the best rates, apply for low-cost loans, ...

  • DSTATCOM for power quality improvement in a four-wire electric distribution system

    This paper deals with the simulation of a Distribution Static Compensator (DSTATCOM) for power quality improvement in a four-wire electric distribution system. A three-phase Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT)-based Current-Controlled Voltage Source Inverter (CC-VSI) with a DC bus capacitor is used as a DSTATCOM. The DSTATCOM improves the supply power factor, eliminates harmonics, provides ...
