Petroleum

View this topic in
Petroleum or crude oil is a naturally occurring, flammable liquid consisting of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons of various molecular weights and other liquid organic compounds, that are found in geologic formations beneath the Earth's surface. Petroleum is recovered mostly through oil drilling. This latter stage comes after the studies of structural geology (at the reservoir scale), sedimentary basin analysis, reservoir characterization (mainly in terms of porosity and permeable structures).

  • Introduction to Electric Vehicles (EVs)

    In this chapter, a general overview of electric vehicles (EVs) is briefly provided because EV is one of the major applications of WPT in this book. Currently, IPT is a majority method for EV charging though CPT is being researched as a potential candidate. Neither detail nor professional introduction to EVs will be tried in this chapter because this book is not intended for EV but for WPT. Those who are aware of EVs may skip this chapter.

  • FEDERAL AND STATE INCENTIVES HEIGHTEN CONSUMER INTEREST IN ELECTRIC VEHICLES

    Since mid¿¿¿1970s, the federal government has provided funding for research into battery and vehicle technologies that could provide an alternative to the gasoline¿¿¿powered engine. Federal tax credits for purchasing an electric vehicle, grants and loans to vehicle and parts manufacturers, and greenhouse gas (GHG) regulations have contributed to the evolution of federal support for electric vehicles. Despite major advancements in electric vehicles in the past 40 years, one factor remains elusive: a safe, inexpensive, high energy density battery. The federal role in seeking such a battery technology supplements similar research by domestic (and foreign) automakers. This chapter reviews federal and state efforts to the advance the U.S. electric vehicle and vehicle battery industries. It also reviews government efforts to spur interest in a range of electric vehicles, including hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), plug¿¿¿in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEVs), extended range electric vehicles (EREVs), fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).

  • Terrestrial Solar Applications

    The main stand‐alone professional applications for solar power are in the transport, telecommunications, and petroleum sectors. Solar generation offers similar benefits in off‐grid rural communities, where it can replace expensive - and often dangerous ‐ energy sources such as kerosene and diesel. Off‐grid rural applications cover in principle everything for which a remote community might require electricity. The chapter highlights the following four applications that were most prevalent during our time frame: pumping, health clinics, lighting and rural community power. As solar power became cheaper and more reliable, it was able to replace primary batteries in portable products. The chapter deals primarily with household products. Power from solar installations on buildings can be supplied directly to the occupants, displacing electricity they would otherwise buy from the grid. National and international aid agencies and funders such as the World Bankqv supported solar rural electrification projects in many parts of the developing world.

  • 3 Energy Crisis: Electricity Becomes an Increasing-Cost Industry

    The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) was formed in 1960. The Yom Kippur War, initiated by Egypt's attack against Israel in October 1973, set the stage for OPEC's Arab members to embargo oil exports to the United States and a few European countries. The results were a fourfold increase in world oil prices, up to about $12 per barrel, and long lines at gasoline service stations in America. The United States economy entered a serious recession coupled with high inflation, dubbed "stagflation."

  • Introduction to Static Charging

    Increasing use of wireless power transfer (WPT) in electric vehicles (EVs) is stationary charging, referred to as static charging in this chapter. This is because of the large number of passenger cars that are ready to be used by many potential customers. Automatic refueling of a vehicle is a wonderful thing for the person bored with repeated daily cable charging of EVs.As identified from recently developed autonomous vehicles and self¿¿¿controlled vehicles, future vehicles will be not only transportation tools but also information platforms. EVs are inherently the most electrified vehicles, which makes the information platform possible. Recently, the number of EV purchasers in the world have been increasing by more than 50% annually, despite the very low petroleum price. This means that EVs are not preferred just because of low operating costs.In this chapter, the need and general features of static chargers are discussed and coil design and standardization issues are explained in detail. The chapter is based on the tutorial material of mine at the 2016 IEEE ECCE¿¿¿Asia and the tutorial material of Chris Mi.

  • Electric and Plug¿¿¿In Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    Shortage of petroleum is considered as one of the most critical worldwide issues today. At the same time, as of today, car owners worldwide, in general, spend more money at the gas station than they have done ever before. The most practical solution to the transportation industry oil¿¿¿consumption crisis problems lies in commercially viable electric and plug¿¿¿in hybrid electric vehicles (EVs and PHEVs). EVs and PHEVs present a significant opportunity to reduce greenhouse gases and dependence on oil. Major automotive companies have already developed exciting new EVs. This chapter presents the structure and basic design aspects of EVs and PHEVs. Future trends in EV manufacturing are also presented. Integration of EVs with green, renewable energy sources is presented, along with an introduction to the design of such systems. Various charging scenarios for EV batteries is presented, when charging at home, at work, or in between routes. Future advanced battery charging infrastructures, such as from combined PV and grid sources are also presented.

  • Developing a Standard for Electrical Trace Heating

    Electric trace heating is a system that uses electrical heating devices to maintain a desired temperature in pipes and vessels. It is used throughout process industry, but also has applications in other industries. Trace heating consists of an electrical heating element that is run along the length of a pipe. Trace heating materials and systems are used to protect pipes from freezing and also to maintain a desired temperature in pipes that transport materials. Electric trace heating began as a commercial application in the 1930s, with mostly make-shift equipment being used to heat pipes and vessels. In most process industries today, from petroleum and chemical to food processing, and pharmaceuticals and power generation, electrical trace heating technologies help solve the problem of keeping materials flowing at an optimal viscosity regardless of ambient temperatures. The process of developing one worldwide standard for industrial trace heating has taken more than 30 years.

  • Geometric Programming for Design and Cost Optimization

    Geometric programming is used for design and cost optimization and the development of generalized design relationships and cost rations for specific problems. The early pioneers of the process, Zener, Duffin, Peterson, Beightler, and Wilde, played important roles in the development of geometric programming. The theory of geometric programming is presented and 10 examples are presented and solved in detail. The examples illustrate some of the difficulties encountered in typical problems and techniques for overcoming these difficulties. The primal-dual relationships are used to illustrate how to determine the primal variables from the dual solution. These primal-dual relationships can be used to determine additional dual equations when the degrees of difficulty are positive. The goal of this work is to have readers develop more case studies to further the application of this exciting mathematical tool. Table of Contents: Introduction / Brief History of Geometric Programming / Theoretica Considerations / Trash Can Case Study / Open Cargo Shipping Box Case Study / Metal Casting Cylindrical Riser Case Study / Process Furnace Design Case Study / Gas Transmission Pipeline Case Study / Journal Bearing Design Case Study / Metal Casting Hemispherical Top Cylindrical Side Riser / Liquefied Petroleum Gas(LPG) Cylinders Case Study / Material Removal/Metal Cutting Economics Case Study / Summary and Future Directions

  • Geometric Programming for Design and Cost Optimization:With Illustrative Case Study Problems and Solutions

    Geometric programming is used for design and cost optimization, the development of generalized design relationships, cost ratios for specific problems, and profit maximization. The early pioneers of the process - Zener, Duffin, Peterson, Beightler, Wilde, and Phillips -- played important roles in the development of geometric programming. There are three major areas: 1) Introduction, History, and Theoretical Fundamentals, 2) Applications with Zero Degrees of Difficulty, and 3) Applications with Positive Degrees of Difficulty. The primal-dual relationships are used to illustrate how to determine the primal variables from the dual solution and how to determine additional dual equations when the degrees of difficulty are positive. A new technique for determining additional equations for the dual, Dimensional Analysis, is demonstrated. The various solution techniques of the constrained derivative approach, the condensation of terms, and dimensional analysis are illustrated with example pro lems. The goal of this work is to have readers develop more case studies to further the application of this exciting tool.
