  • Train derailment prompts contaminated land investigation - Case study

    On March 30th 2015 a long freight train, transporting a variety of goods including lumber and chemicals, wound its way through the state of Mississippi. At around 5pm, part of the train failed to negotiate a curved portion of the track in a rural area near Minter City, resulting in the derailment of nine railcars, one of which leaked chemicals onto agricultural farmland and woodlands. Emergency ...

  • Why Interactive Ultrasonic Programs are Important to Effectively Control Algae

    Many different algal types can bloom in a water body. Some of these algae are plant cells, while others are bacteria. Algae may vary in size, shape and cell characteristics. Typically, the type of algae that blooms depends on water temperature and sun hours. As a result, algal types may change several times during a season. To effectively  ...

  • Online condition monitoring of electrical power system imbalance

    Symmetrical components are of great importance in many applications in electrical power systems, such as power protection and condition monitoring. This paper presents a computer-based algorithm for online symmetrical components estimation. The proposed algorithm uses the samples of the phase variables (currents or voltages) to estimate the magnitude and phase angle of each phase phasor at each ...

  • Reliable silica monitoring supports power station efficiency

    West Burton B CCGT is a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine power station near Nottingham in the UK. It has three open-cycle gas turbines capable of generating enough electricity for approximately 1.5 million UK homes. In common with all combustion based power stations, the CCGT has a requirement to monitor silica levels in the Plant’s water and steam processes. Sean Todd, the Plant’s Control ...

  • Permit Compliance Monitoring for the Power Generation Industry

    The Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) of 1990 authorized EPA to develop regulations requiring facilities to monitor the adequacy of emission control equipment and plant operations. This paper discusses the various methods available for coal-fired power plants and gas turbine installations to demonstrate a reasonable assurance of facility compliance with emission limitations, and ensure that control ...

  • Solar/wind power for noise monitoring terminals

    Solar Power Solutions A noise monitoring terminal’s (NMT) low power consumption and its ability to operate fully without power hungry cooling and heating units inside its enclosure mean that it is suitable for power from solar panels. The NMT may be continuously powered by battery which in turn is kept charged via solar energy. This solution is most appropriate in areas where there ...

  • River Monitoring

    The monitoring of River water has impications not only on the environmental impacts of heavy metals but also upon the quality of drinking water. THis case study covers an analyser installed in a remote location using low voltage power supplies to suppliment the local mains power supply which cannot be relied ...

  • Application of the Most Recent Monitoring Systems in Hydro Power Plants

    Abstract The paper describes main reasons for refurbishment of hydro power plants and summarizes the most frequent works during refurbishment. A special attention is paid to the process of refurbishment of the electric equipment, in the first line generators and excitation systems, and integration of the most contemporary monitoring system. The paper talks about some of the methods of ...

  • Sewer Level Monitoring - Photos

    Sewer Level Monitoring - Photos Photos in this article present the complexity and versatility of sewer level monitoring. When examining the photos, pay special attention to the stand-alone autonomous characteristics of each installation. In lack of any cabling from the outside, whether data cables or power cables, the solution is fed from its own battery power supply. Data is tranmitted ...

  • Climate monitoring - meeting the challenge

    Average global temperatures are on the increase, ice and snow cover is disappearing fast and sea levels are rising. In addition, severe weather situations are becoming more frequent and more extreme. There is clear evidence that the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans are warming: 11 of the 12 years in the period 1995-2006 were among the 12 warmest since 1850. Climate change is a reality and it is ...

  • Radiation Monitors and Meters

    Light Description and Applications The light meter is a portable unit designed to measure visible, UV, and near-UV light in the workplace. (The CTC has a UV light meter available through its loan program, ALEP.) The light meter is capable of reading any optical unit of energy or power level if the appropriate detector has been calibrated with the meter. The spectral range of the instrument is ...

  • Monitoring of water node in wroclaw

    Background Wroclaw's water node has complicated structure. The river Odra has 3 main riverbeds and a lot of channels which are located in the centre of town. There are almost 100 hydro buildings which control flow of the water through the city and protect it against theflood. The great flood in 1997 proved that no one has control over it. Communication systems failure caused ...
