Control, Modulation, and Protection Strategies for Modular Multilevel Converters in Smart AC and DC Grids ApplicationsDownload
The technical viability of the modular multilevel converter (MMC) technology for a wide range of applications from low- to high-voltage systems has resulted in the rapid deployment of these converters in smart ac and dc grids. The features that MMCs offer, including common dc-link, modularity,...
The oil sands industry in Alberta produces large volumes of process-affected water (PAW), which is known to contain heavy metals and organic compounds (such as naphthenic acids, naphthalene, phenanthrene, pyrene, etc.) that are toxic and hazardous to the environment. The industry has an ongoing...
The purpose of this study was to prepare ecological habitat working maps at a scale of 1:50,000 from false colour infrared photographs of the AOSERP study area obtained in 1977, and to evaluate multispectral and multistage remote sensing techniques for application to mapping and monitoring in the...
Establishing a World Class Public Information and Reporting System for Ecosystems in the Oil Sands Region – ReportDownload
This report is one of two - this one (TR-5A) contains only the report; the other (TR-5A) contains the report and Appendices. This report presents a vision for a comprehensive and effective Public Information and Reporting System for Ecosystem Effects in the Oil Sands Region that is relevant,...
Establishing a World Class Public Information and Reporting System for Ecosystems in the Oil Sands Region – Report and AppendicesDownload
This is one of two reports - this one (TR-5) contains detailed appendices; the other one (TR-5A) contains only the report. This report presents a vision for a comprehensive and effective Public Information and Reporting System for Ecosystem Effects in the Oil Sands Region that is relevant,...
Prior to 1975 information on surface water hydrology in the oil sands area was very limited. During 1975 and 1976 a number of hydrometric gauging stations were provided by AOSERP to bring the total number of stations in the area to 32. Measurements of standard water quality parameters began at...
Evaluation, analysis, and assessment of snowpack and precipitation data from a monitoring network in the AOSERP study areaDownload
The data and network operating procedures from the precipitation and snow sampling networks in the AOSERP area of Alberta were reviewed and assessed. The data was first reformatted into NAQUADAT format and then quality assured by several screening procedures including outlier tests, simultaneous...
Effective and adaptive conservation of a species requires knowledge of trend in abundance and distribution. Monitoring species that are highly mobile, cryptic, and occurring at low densities is especially challenging. This research investigates the local factors affecting the detectability of...
As the demand for oil and gas resources increases pipeline construction pushes further into the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions. Consequently, these buried pipelines suffer much harsh environmental and complex loading conditions. Moreover, to increase the transporting efficiency, larger size pipes...
Hydrotechnical research in the Alberta Oil Sands has been oriented toward establishment of baseline (i.e. pre-development) environmental conditions and identification of contaminant transport mechanisms. Monitoring networks for both groundwaters and surface waters are in place and both water...
