  • Renewable Power Generation Costs in 2014

    Executive Summary The competiveness of renewable power generation technologies continued improving in 2013 and 2014. The cost-competitiveness of renewable power generation technologies has reached historic levels. Biomass for power, hydropower, geothermal and onshore wind can all now provide electricity competitively compared to fossil fuel-fired power generation (Figure ES 1). ...

  • An environmentally conscious robust optimisation approach for planning power generating systems

    This study proposes a robust optimisation capacity expansion planning model that yields a less sensitive solution due to variations in model parameters such as demand and fuel prices. By adjusting the penalty parameters, the model can accommodate the decision maker's risk aversion and yield a solution based upon it. The proposed model is then applied to Ontario Power Generation, the largest power ...

  • 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 ...

  • Programmed PWM to improve power quality in systems with distributed generation units

    Pulse-Width Modulated (PWM) inverters are widely applied in Distributed Generation (DG) units and power quality equipment owing to their excellent performance and flexible control means. Programmed PWM (PPWM), as a special type of optimal PWM strategy, theoretically allows for setting the fundamental and the selected harmonic amplitudes directly to arbitrary values. The algorithms for solving ...

  • Computational study of a diagonal channel Magnetohydrodynamic power generation

    This paper studies the performance of a diagonal channel Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) power generation. This system includes a diagonal conducting wall MHD generator. As a model of channel, we use a scramjet-driven MHD generator where the MHD generator is directly integrated into the propulsion system. The channel specification is 59.28 cm in length. The working plasma for the power system is ...

  • First commissioned LFG power generation unit in Iran

    The first landfill gas (LFG) power generation station in Iran was officially commissioned in July 2009. This plant is located in old landfill site of Mashhad, the second largest city in Iran. This landfill has been receiving municipal solid wastes (MSW) since 1975 but the first activity for biogas extraction in this site was started in 2000. The LFG extraction system in this site is based on ...


  • Negative Power Generation Aspects of Adopting Renewable Sources

    Renewable energy resources are all the rage nowadays on a global scale with the biggest benefit of providing unlimited access without any fear of depletion or running out in the near future. It also provides the edge of saving the continuously decreasing fossil fuel reserves and to protect the planet against the harmful pollution caused by the burning of all non-renewable resources. Some common ...

  • A novel dual stator-winding induction generator system applied in wind power generation

    This paper presents a novel usage of 6/3-phase dual stator-winding induction generator (DWIG) with a static excitation power controller (SEC) as a wind power generator. This generator is composed of a standard squirrel-cage rotor and two sets of winding housed in the stator slots. One is referred to as the 6-phase power winding, and the other is defined as the 3-phase control winding. On the ...

  • CPV solar power system

    There are relatively few CPV applications still pursuing Si cells. The idea was somewhat "hot", no pun intended, when there was a silicon shortage going on, but silicon prices have dropped as new capacity has come online and the only successful CPV concepts being marketed which I know of are based on triple junction Ge/GaAs/InGaP or similar cells. These are also rather heat sensitive, and the two ...


  • Power plants coordination for economic and environmental load dispatch of thermal power plants with wind generation systems

    Economic load dispatch (ELD) and economic emission dispatch (EED) have been applied to obtain generation scheduling of thermal power plants at optimum fuel cost and emissions. Due to limited availability of quality coal, issue of environmental emissions and high prices of coal, installation of renewable energy systems are suggested in power grid. Renewable energy system preferably wind generators ...
