  • Interregional power transmission: a component in planning for renewable energy technologies

    We discuss the role played by interregional power transmission on the basis of recent scenario work. In a project dealing with long-term planning for energy efficiency and renewable energy in Europe [described thoroughly in 1-4], we modelled a scenario for the present 15 EU countries' energy system in 2050. The basis for the scenario is the concept of "fair pricing" for energy services, meaning ...

  • Fault-tolerant power supply for safety significant nuclear instrumentation and control

    Nuclear Instrumentation and Control (I&C) must address the issue of power supply differently from other commercial control systems. What is doable for commercial plants, such as a thermal power station, should not be applied for Nuclear Power Plant I&C. The hazards arising from power supply failure in nuclear power stations cannot be compared with other commercial systems. Therefore, the use of ...

  • Analysis, design and control of a two stage improved power quality telecommunication power supply

    This paper deals with the power quality improvement at the utility interface of a telecommunication switched mode power supply (SMPS) of 12 kW rating. The first stage of this SMPS consists of a 6–pulse diode bridge converter that performs ac–dc conversion yielding an unregulated dc voltage. In the second stage, two boost rectifiers are connected together which feed to a boost dc–dc full bridge ...

  • The Future Cost of Wind Power

    Chapter 1 The economics of wind power Wind power is capital intensive with most of the investment required upfront. The largest capital cost component is the turbine itself which can account for between 40% and 80% of the total capital cost of an onshore wind installation. Costs offshore are higher because of the more expensive operating environment and the greater difficulty establishing ...

  • Solving solar-power issues

    Certainly, no one would accept only having electricity during the day, and then only on clear days, if they have a choice. We need energy storage -- batteries. Unfortunately, batteries add a lot of cost and maintenance to the PV system. Currently, however, it's a necessity if you want to be completely independent. One way around the problem is to connect your house to the utility grid, buying ...


  • Solar Energy and Power Importance

    Have you ever wondered why solar energy or power is important? You are not alone in this because it is the common question of all. Before we can understand why solar energy is important we should have a good idea of what solar energy is. Solar energy is produced by the sun. It can be harnessed like any other type of energy and used to ...

  • The Emerging Power of Microgrids

    Over many decades, the centralized power grid — a one-way flow of electricity, generated by large, remote power plants and distributed over miles of transmission lines to homes and businesses — succeeded in delivering electricity across continents to billions. But in recent years the system’s shortcomings have become increasingly ...

  • From biogas to natural gas - A new renewable fuel supply line

    Continents and countries that depend on fossil fuels, such as Europe, and within Europe, northern Europe, are increasingly looking with interest at renewable energies and are committed to developing such energies as a source for future development. Biogas from different sources is a valuable material for the production of energy, chemical products and bio-fuels. Because it is a renewable energy, ...

  • Wind power status, barriers, and opportunities

    In the wake of the oil crisis in the early 1970s, governments around the world were anxious to diversify energy supply away from fossil sources, and so harnessing the wind was seen as an important component of this policy initiative. A decade of research saw a Danish designemerge as the industry standard: the three-bladed, horizontal axis, upwind machine. A modern wind turbine comprises a tubular ...

  • Captive power plant efficiency for Africa

    Power distribution networks across Africa are notoriously unreliable. Frequent power interruptions can be enormously costly for many of the continent’s factories. Not only do power outages disrupt production batches, they can also damage or reduce the life of important plant components such as kilns. This too has a knock-on effect on wider the country’s gross domestic product – ...
