  • Transition from fossil fuels power plants toward Virtual Power Plants of distribution networks

    One of the most significant challenges of metropolitan cities is producing the exceedingly growing demands of customers. To do this, fossil fuels power plants need to be established and transmission lines are required to be expanded. Founding fossil fuels power plants are along with more emission production and expenses. Worldwide smart grid project obligates all the countries to provide some parts of their energy demands through renewable energy resources. Distributed Energy Resources (DERs): Wind Turbine (WT), Combined Heat and Power (CHP), Energy Storage (ES), and Demand Response programs (DR) are taken into account as the outstanding technologies of distributed generations. Interconnection of DERs to electric distribution networks constructs Virtual Power Plants (VPPs) with slighter emission and lower expenses. In this paper, effectiveness of different DERs within the VPPs is investigated in reducing emission, expenses, and technical challenges of electric distribution networks. An Energy Hub (EH) is modeled to portray the problem. GAMS software is employed to resolve the problem. Simulation results manifest the operation costs and energy consumption reduction on electric distribution networks by utilization of the different aforementioned technologies within the VPPs. The results also demonstrate effects of load and loss factors as well as emission production through employment of the different DERs within VPPs.

  • Realistic ocean energy alternatives to fossil fuels

    The US Commission on Ocean Policy endorsed the Administrations complete dependence on fossil fuels as the primary energy source for the nation. Two very significant alternatives were rejected or neglected. The first alternative was sea based semi submerged nuclear power plant ships deployed in a line paralleling the coastline of the United States. The US has developed and deployed hundreds of nuclear powered submarines without an accident affecting the people or the environment. The US has also built and successfully operated a number of land based pressurized water reactors at the 3,000 megawatt level. The marriage of these two developments would have a very significant effect on the electrical energy production now produced by fossil fuels. The second development is based on the recognition that the transport and use of hydrogen requires its containment in molecules for which nitrogen is the container. Practically this limits transport in the form of hydrazine and/or ammonia. Ammonia has been successfully used by nations deprived of a source of fossil fuel. If ammonia can be created without the use of hydrocarbons, then an ammonia energy economy is possible. The late William H. Avery has already demonstrated that large (1-3 thousand megawatt) OTEC plants located in the doldrums inside exclusive economic zones can generate tanker transported ammonia without the use of fossil fuels at a cost which is increasingly competitive with fossil fuels. The nations which implement one or both of these alternatives may be the only nations to achieve energy independence in the 21st century

  • Fossil fuels, the greenhouse effect and photovoltaics

    It is suggested that the timing and magnitude of an explosive growth period in photovoltaics will be strongly influenced by factors related to the use of fossil fuels. Depletion of fossil fuels in some parts of the world is likely to cause significant changes in the energy policies of various governments and to result in higher energy costs to the consumer. Perhaps even more significant is the fact that the growing consumption of fossil fuels is contaminating the global environment at an increasing rate, and this contamination may lead to drastic changes in climate. It is emphasized that photovoltaics represents one of the few clean energy options for a pollution- free future.<<ETX>>

  • Pyrolysis of Jatropha curcas L. husk: Optimization solid, liquid and gas yield by using response surface methodology (RSM)

    This study aimed to develop an optimal condition for production of solid and liquid products from the pyrolysis of Jatropha curcas L. husk. Response surface methodology (RSM) based on central composite rotatable design (CCRD) was applied to optimize the combination effect of three important reaction variables, i.e. reaction temperature (°C), heating rate (°C/min) and nitrogen gas flow rate (ml/min). The reaction was performed via vertical fixed-bed reactor. A total of 20 individual experiments were conducted. The results showed that the RSM based on CCRD is well adaptable for pyrolysis studied in this system. The predicted optimum conditions for production of solid and liquid yield from the pyrolysis of Jatropha curcas L. husk was at 400°C reaction temperature, 60°C/min heating rate and 120 ml/min nitrogen gas flow rate with char, liquid and gas yield at 38%, 28.9 % and 33.0% respectively.

  • Role of fossil fuels in electricity generation and their environmental impact

    Approximately 70% of the world's electricity is generated by the combustion of fossil fuels and there is consequential environmental impact due to the production of the fossil fuels and their transportation as well as from their combustion. In 1992, the solid fossil fuels are the major fuel for electricity generation and are responsible for 58% of the electricity generated from fossil fuels; natural gas accounts for about 23% and fuel oils for 19%. The scene however is shifting towards a greater use of natural gas and by the year 2000 it could provide 25-30% of the world electricity output, while the amount of fuel burned will have decreased. The reason for this scenario is simply that the combustion of coal can cause a considerable amount of pollution compared to natural gas. The environmental impact of these fossil fuels in relation to electricity are considered together with the available methods of emission control. Cleaner coal technologies to reduce the emission of NO/sub x/, SO/sub 2/ and CO/sub 2/ are described and include fluidised bed combustion and an integrated gasification combined cycle. There is no SO/sub x/ problem with natural gas and NO/sub x/ is controlled by injecting steam or water into the gas turbine inlet.<<ETX>>

  • Sustainable energy generation

    The world is facing the threat of depleting fossil fuel resources. This could case a major setback to the world. Researches show that the fossil fuels will get depleted completely in about 15-20 years. The world needs an alternative source of fuels that could keep the world running on its wheels. Alternatives in the form of solar energy, wind energy, biofuels, hydrogen fuels etc have been found, but they need more study and experimentation before they could be launched commercially. This paper discusses the possibilities of generating two sustainable forms of energy. ldr hydrogen production ldr biofuel from genetically modified plants both the sources promise the production of energy that could be used without the fear of causing pollution and moreover, these sources could be produced easily with the minimum requirement of money and labour. The following paper consists of processes that could be implemented throughout the world to meet the increasing need for fuels and also to complement the depletion of the fossil fuels.

  • A review on magnetic resonance based wireless power transfer system for electric vehicles

    Serious environmental pollution caused by internal combustion engines, together with the depletion of fossil fuels, has motivated global interest in eco-friendly energy. Vehicles are the main fossil fuel consumers, to reduce the use of fossil fuels in vehicles; Electric vehicle technology has been developed. The eco-friendly vehicle is the global trend in the automobile industry. However, all-electric vehicles, such as plug and play electric vehicles and battery operated electric vehicles are distributed widely. But at present some battery-related drawbacks such as large size, heavy weight, long charging time, and short driving range are occurs. These problems are not easily solved by current battery technology. This paper gives the brief summary of how battery can be charged with the help of wireless power transfer system.

  • The polymer-silica nanocomposites of the system HEMA - TEOS

The kinetics of photoinitiated polymerization of the obtained composites depending on time of gelation has been studied. The influence of the HOIC composition on their thermomechanical properties and parameters of their molecular structure was investigated.

  • A new pavement energy harvest system

    At the present time there is a need to change the paradigm in electrical energy generation due to the increasing cost of fossil fuels and their adverse effects on the environment. It has become increasingly evident that the fossil fuels used to generate energy are not unlimited and that their use is harmful to the environment due to the greenhouse effects. This paper describes a new pavement energy harvest system developed in Portugal by the Waydip Company with the collaboration of the Pavement Mechanics Laboratory of the University of Coimbra.
