  • Technical and Economic Assessment of Landfill Gas-based CHP Plants in South Africa

    The paper reports on the technical, economic and environmental assessment of landfill gas-based stand-alone and grid-connected combined heat and power (CHP) systems in South Africa. First order decay models are used to calculate the methane production potential of three Western Cape landfill sites in order to assess their suitability for landfill gas to energy (LFGTE) projects. Then Homer package is used to simulate and assess the energy generation potential of stand-alone and grid-connected CHP configurations using landfill gas generated in all the three sites. It is assumed that stand-alone configuration is aimed at supplying heat and power to remote communities without access to grid electricity while the grid-connected configuration is aimed to generate energy during the peak load period only. The results of simulation are used to make final conclusions and recommendation about the viability of LFGTE systems in South Africa.

  • Alkali Migration during Corncob Combustion in Fluidized Bed

    Corncob is combusted in a bench-scale atmospheric fluidized bed. Inductive Coupled Plasma Spectrometer (ICP-AES) is used to detect alkali content which moved into gas or remained in bed material in order to study the effect of bed temperature and air excess coefficient. The results show that bed temperature is the major factor on alkali migration, when bed temperature increases, alkali content into gas increases greatly, while alkali content in bed material decreases, potassium is more easily to vaporize into gas than sodium does during combustion. The result also shows that the proportion of water- solubility potassium in total potassium of bed material decreases also with the rise of temperature. The effect of air excess coefficient on alkali migration is less significant than temperature. When air excess coefficient increases from 1.12 to 1.35, alkali content in gas increased while alkali content in bed material decreased.

  • How many bits?

    Since 1982, Landsat has acquired multispectral data using 8-bit data. With many new and highly advanced systems and sensors being developed, we wish to evaluate the benefits of higher radiometric precision for forestry applications. Two industrial forestry sites in central Virginia are chosen to carry out this analysis because of the large variability in standing biomass associated with recovery from past harvest. IKONOS imagery and Earth Observing System's Advanced Land Imager (ALI) imagery are used in the study. These sensors acquire data using 11 and 12 bits, respectively. By subsampling to Landsat spatial resolution, and truncating the dynamic range and radiometric resolution, we can create Landsat-like image products at a variety of radiometric resolutions. Results show that although a difference can be seen when comparing datasets of higher and lower radiometric resolution, those differences appear to be small when trying to discriminate the boundaries of disturbed stands.

  • Supervisory control system for a fermentation plant

    The fed-batch fermentation process is nonlinear and often operated at unsteady state. In this work, a supervisory control system was added to a fed-batch fermentation plant. The objective was to preserve the final biomass concentration, as nearly as possible to its ideal final value, even if the process input was subjected to changes. The main process input is the initial biomass concentration which has an ideal initial value that may change according to chemical laboratory quality assurance procedures. Simulated experiments on the proposed supervisory control were done using a Proportional controller only, then by a Composite controller. The results showed that the Composite controller has a superior effect than the Proportional.

  • Management of Wastewater Treatment Plant's Performance by Control of Waste Sludge Discharge

    Waste sludge discharge is important in wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) performance control. Nutrient removal was compared in three cases in this paper: (1) without waste sludge discharge, (2) with waste sludge discharge and mixed liquid suspended solids (MLSS) was 1200 mg/L, (3) with waste sludge discharge and MLSS was 3500 mg/L. Based on comparison of waste sludge discharge control, the effluent quality of the WWTP was improved.

  • Assessment of boreal forest biomass using L-band radiometer SMOS data

    This paper employs a method based on a parameterized first-order radiative transfer (RT) model at L-band to evaluate the aboveground biomass of forest area using Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) data. A comprehensive database, including forest structure information based on L-system and the corresponding scattering properties, was established. Then the parameterized first-order RT retrieval model was used to acquire the forest parameters. The Look-Up Table method was used to find the proper biomass value. We retrieved the single scattering albedo and the optical thickness and then found the biomass value which approximated to the reference dataset.

  • Direct model reference adaptive control of nutrient removal at activated sludge wastewater treatment plant

    A direct model reference adaptive controller for dissolved oxygen reference trajectory tracking in an aerobic reactor for nutrient removal at the activated sludge wastewater treatment plant is proposed and investigated. The reference trajectory is prescribed on-line by an upper control layer of the plant overall control system. The controller design utilises a different time scales in the internal dissolved oxygen dynamic and disturbance inputs. The controller is validated by simulation using real data records.
