A Distribution System Harmonic Compensation Approach Using DG-grid Interfacing Converters at Low Switching FrequencyDownload
In recent years, embedding ancillary functions of distributed generation (DG) have drawn great attention due to the increasing penetration of renewable energy based DG such as photovoltaic, wind turbines and fuel cells. Among these ancillary functions, harmonics compensation is becoming more...
Application of Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound for Microbial Cell Stimulation in Bioprocesses And Development of Carbon-based Silver Covered Filters for Microbial Cells Removal in Water SystemsDownload
Renewable resources with their potential application in food industry, pharmacy, energy sector, chemistry, material science etc. can be a major player in our everyday lives. Apart from sustainability in the production, the use of bioprocesses in the energy production and waste water treatment can...
Effective Utilization of Distributed and Renewable Energy Resources to Stabilize and Enhance Smart Power Grids PerformanceDownload
Clean and renewable energy resources such as wind power and photovoltaics, along with advanced environmentally-friendly loads like electric vehicles, will be significant components of future grids. These resources are rapidly increasing, but they have an inherent tendency to degrade system...
Environmental and Performance Analysis of a 5kW Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine in East Central AlbertaDownload
This thesis investigates the environmental and performance results of a 5kW horizontal axis wind turbine installed in east-central Alberta. Life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology was utilized to perform a comparative environmental impact study on three sizes of small wind turbines installed in...
Generating Electricity from Agricultural Residue Biomass in Bolivia; A GIS and Techno-economic AnalysisDownload
Agricultural residues, a renewable source of energy, are widely available in Bolivia. Using agricultural residues to generate electricity on a large scale could decrease dependence on fossil fuels and provide a secure energy supply. Although the country depends on natural gas to generate...
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emission is one of the important environmental issues that world is facing today. Biomass usage, specifically capturing energy from biomass that would otherwise decay, is one the of many options available to mitigate the impact of the buildup of GHG emissions from fossil...
