Although the free troposphere in the Southern Hemisphere has often been considered to contain very low concentrations of aerosols, significant enhancements in the aerosol loading have been reported on several occasions during the last three decades. This paper reports on the results of two recent experiments in which significant increases in the loading of aerosols and trace gases were observed ...

This paper is concerned with the optimal dispatch of generating units of Itaipu, the world's largest hydroelectric plant in operation. Itaipu is a 12.6 GW hydro plant, located on the Parana river, in South America, composed of 18 identical 700 MW generating units. A dynamic programming model has been developed to optimize the number of generating units in operation at ...

Sports had always fascinated humanity. In this context, soccer was taken as a study source. The objective of this paper is to formulate a simulation model to generate estimators for necessary scores to achieve certain places at the final classification ranking of the Brazilian National Soccer Championship. The main data used are the rules of the championship, the number of competitors and the probability that a match ends up in a draw.
Although the free troposphere in the Southern Hemisphere has often been considered to contain very low concentrations of aerosols, significant enhancements in the aerosol loading have been reported on several occasions during the last three decades. This paper reports on the results of two recent experiments in which significant increases in the loading of aerosols and trace gases were observed over southern Australia. The Mildura Aerosol Tropospheric Experiment (MATE 98) and an experiment conducted during SAFARI 2000 used a ground-based lidar and a combination of instruments mounted on balloons and aircraft to measure increased concentrations of aerosols and trace gases. Back-trajectory analyses show that these plumes did not originate from the Australian continent, but are likely to have come from southern Africa or South America.
This paper is concerned with the optimal dispatch of generating units of Itaipu, the world's largest hydroelectric plant in operation. Itaipu is a 12.6 GW hydro plant, located on the Parana river, in South America, composed of 18 identical 700 MW generating units. A dynamic programming model has been developed to optimize the number of generating units in operation at each hour of the day in order to attain the total generation scheduling of the plant in the most economic way. The model highlights the tradeoff between start-up /shut-down of generating units and hydro power efficiency, taking into account variations in tailrace elevation, penstock head losses and turbine-generator efficiencies. The methodology has been tested for a typical generation scheduling, and the results show that the number of the turbine-generator sets dispatched has a major influence on the overall hydroplant efficiency, and therefore it is a key aspect to be considered in the dispatch of hydro generating units. In the case of Itaipu, the economic benefits, in terms of greater power efficiency with respect to actual operation, are in the range of millions of dollars per year.

Brazil is a country with a large territorial extension which is divided into 26 states. Each state has its own telephone administration. Determined by the characteristics of each state, which vary from São Paulo with more than 12 million inhabitants in its capital to Amazonas with small villages in the Amazonian forest, there are significant differences between the administrative and operational staff of these companies. The small administrations used to ask the bigger ones, like TELESP, EMBRATEL, TELEPAR, etc., to help them with projects, specifications and acceptance of the equipment. With the stablishment of the holding company, TELEBRÁS (TELECOMUNICAÇÕES BRASILEIRAS), they wanted to uniform all the different specifications. At that time, TELEBRÁS brought together the manufacturers (4 to 6 companies) and the administration to start the elaboration of a power-supply specification standard. This paper will show the efforts to provide the country with normalized power systems, from tne point of view of Ericsson do Brasil, the advantages and disadvantages, 10 years after their introduction.
It is shown that the investigation of lightning activity levels, using very low frequency radio emissions near 10 kHz, needs to take into account the significant influences of subionospheric propagation. Ten-kilohertz spectral power measurements made at Halley, Antarctica (76°S, 26°W), show at least two significant periodicities. The largest variation (10 dB) is due to the diurnal cycle and is strongly dominated by South American thunderstorm activity levels. The effect of African thunderstorm activity is observable in the diurnal variation plots but is strongly reduced by disadvantageous propagation conditions. The analysis suggests that given two identical tropical source regions, one situated east and one situated west, of a polar receiver site, the region to the west will tend to dominate the diurnal variation. The smaller annual variation at Halley (3 dB) can be explained by the improved subionospheric propagation conditions during the Southern Hemisphere winter counterbalancing the seasonal effects of decreased source activity in South America.
The simplified ionospheric regional model (SIRM) was originally developed for modeling the most relevant ionospheric characteristics over Europe for radiocommunication purposes. The model, based mainly on the Fourier expansion of a reference past data set, is here adapted and applied to different sets of dishomogeneous periods of observed data coming from a sparse network of ionospheric stations in midlatitude areas, that is, northeastern North America, southeastern South America, northeast Asia, and southeast Australia. Notwithstanding the simple SIRM formulation and the reduced number of numerical coefficients involved, a good agreement has been found between modeled and observed monthly median values of f<inf>0</inf>F<inf>2</inf> and M(3000)F<inf>2</inf> under different heliogeophysical conditions.
