  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Amassing Wind Information

    Wind is a variable resource, but not an indecipherable one. Second Wind encourages harnessing the full range of wind sensing technologies that are available today. When it comes to wind information, much attention is focused on the choice of wind measurement technology and data collection practices in wind resource assessment and project design. Right now, wind data plays a limited role in the ...


  • Evaluation of air pollution, local meteorology and urban public health

    The relationship between meteorological conditions and air pollution was assessed as a plausible explanation for respiratory health problems in Newark, New Jersey on the US east coast. Pollutants in both particle (PM2.5 and PM10) and gas phase (O3) were collected and analysed. We find that PM2.5 concentrations decreased by -30.8% (95% CI: -43.2%, -15.8%) when the ...

  • Hybrid Solar/Wind plant in Madagascar

    Distinguished among the winners of the Sunidarity initiative, the World Energy Foundation announced Thursday that it had installed in the extreme south of Madagascar a concentration photovoltaic equipment (CPV) provided by Soitec, one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of global CPV systems. Called Plug & Sun, this equipment allows an autonomous solar-electric generation in areas ...

  • Particulate matter dispersion and haze occurrence potential studies at a local palm oil mill

    ABSTRACT: The emissions from palm oil industry through incineration and open burning are the major sources of air pollutions contribution in Malaysia. The consequence of increasing the particulate concentration, the particulate matter dissolves with vapour and grows into droplets when the humidity exceeds approximately 70% and causing opaque situation known as haze. This work focuses on the ...

  • Desalination plant in Egypt runs on wind & sun

    Fortis Wind Energy (NL) and Juwi Renewable (DE) install a 100kW hybrid system in Egypt. Egypt, the land of the pyramids, is known to us for its ancient culture and the last year because of the uprisings for more democracy. Egypt is less known for its large population (83 million) lives along the Nile (only 5.5% of the surface). The rest of the country is desert. The River Nile runs into Egypt ...

  • Meteorological simulations with use of satellite data for assessing urban heat island under summertime anticyclonic conditions

    The aim of this study was to investigate the formation, evolution and evaluation of topography effects on the urban heat island over the city of Zagreb. For this purpose, the non-hydrostatic mesoscale meteorological model MEMO was used and high-resolution simulations were carried out for two summertime anticyclonic periods. Satellite data were used to improve the model's performance. The ...

  • Validation of CALINE4 modelling for carbon monoxide concentrations under free-flowing and congested traffic conditions in Ireland

    Atmospheric dispersion model accuracy is dependent not only on the quality of the data used, but also on the methodology of the model and its user. The air pollution dispersion model CALINE4 (Benson, 1984; 1992) is commonly used in Ireland but was developed outside Ireland and has not been validated for use in Irish conditions. The objective of this work was to validate the use of the model for ...

  • A New Method for Inter-Coil Short Circuit Detection in Synchronous Machine Armature Winding

    Abstract Detection of inter-coil short circuits has a significant importance in nowadays diagnostics of rotating electrical machines. In this paper two modern, reliable and economically viable methods for such detection in excitation windings of turbo generator have been described. One can be applied in operation and the other in standstill condition. First method for ...

  • Air pollution dispersion inside a street canyon of Gottinger Strasse (Hannover, Germany): new results of the analysis of full scale data

    This study analyses the interactions between pollutant concentrations inside a street canyon, and wind and traffic dispersive air motions. Air pollutant concentrations, meteorological parameters and traffic flow continuously measured in Gottinger Strasse (Hannover, Germany) were used in calculations. Parameters included in the inverse proportionality between concentration and a dispersive ...

  • Structure-preserving dynamical model and distributed stabilisation of electricity infrastructures with renewable energy resources

    This paper introduces a module-based approach to modelling and controlling electricity infrastructure with a high penetration of distributed renewable energy resources. Each energy-converting component is defined as a module and is represented in terms of its local variables and the interaction variables between the module and the transmission network. The structure of the electricity ...

  • An application of a puff dispersion model on power plant emissions in Yatagan region, Turkey

    The present paper describes the application of the CALMET meteorological model and CALPUFF plume dispersion model to the Yatagan district to study the impact of Yatagan Power Plant emissions on the SO2 levels on December 2000 in the region. Results indicate that SO2 concentrations over the city depend strongly on advected emissions from the power plant and on the ...

  • Relationship between distribution uniformity and soil moisture content

    Tests on a sand-based green suggest that soil moisture measurements and hand watering are critical to mitigating localized dry spot. Providing a putting surface with uniform playing conditions and aesthetics is a critical component to successful golf course management. A condition that regularly disrupts putting green uniformity is localized drying or localized dry spot (also known as LDS) (3). A ...

  • About the plume rise description in the dispersion code SAFE_AIR

    SAFE_AIR is a code simulating the transport and diffusion of airborne pollutants. This code is based on the advection of Gaussian segments and puffs driven by a 3-D wind field produced by a diagnostic model, able to deal with both non-stationary and inhomogeneous conditions. SAFE_AIR is an evolution of the AVACTA II code, "recommended" by the US EPA (United States Environmental ...

  • North Carolina Solar Installation Case Study

    Project Overview Patriot Solar Group (PSG) began working on initial racking designs during Summer of 2011.  At that time, the site was still yet to be cleared, but early soil testings confirmed that a driven post design would be suitable for the site conditions. PSG’s sales and engineering team worked closely with project engineers to ensure the racking design ...

  • Case study - New monitoring network for Scottish ports

    In the past, the ferries operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to port to assess weather and tidal conditions would allow them to berth alongside the pier.  In efforts to save time, fuel and costs, the Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL), which owns many of the ferries, ports and harbors in the region, decided to install 15  tide and weather stations, using ...

  • Weather Data for Noise Monitoring

    “Weather conditions are the single largest variable factor in how sound travels over large distances,” says Steve Bilawchuk principal partner and engineer at ACI Acoustical Consultants Inc. “Wind speed and wind direction are of crucial importance.” ACI is an acoustical engineering consulting company based in Alberta, Canada, which uses ...

  • Case study - Weather data for nautical information system

    In Lemwerder, Germany at the Weser River, wind direction and speed are measured and transferred in 60 second intervals via the OTT netDL 1000.  The data is transmitted, wireless, over a distance of 600 meters to the radar tower in Ritzenbuettel, where it is integrated into the ship traffic network - the Authority for Water and Navigation (WSA), Bremen. The WSA is also responsible for ...

  • El Niño/La Niña Update: Current Situation and outlook

    Despite warming of the Tropical Pacific Ocean up until June, the overlaying atmosphere largely failed to respond. As a result, ocean temperature anomalies along the equator have decreased over the past two months. Changes in the wind patterns in early-August brought some weak re-warming, but winds have now returned to near normal in the western Pacific, while the pattern of cloudiness has ...
