    ABSTRACT: The air preheater (APH) is the last heat trap in flue gas path of boiler. Efficient performance of APH is possible with efficient pre-combustion coal drying and effective combustion in the furnace. The characteristic of ambient air temperature (AAT) has a significant role on the efficiency of heat transfer in APH. The change in AAT in turn changes heat capacity of air that depends on relative humidity (RH) and air density. An increase in AAT will reduce the waste heat recovery opportunity, if sufficient reserve capacity of heat exchange is not available in APH. Besides, change in AAT will have an impact on the power consumption of the fans and leakage through different seals. In this paper, the effect of these factors due to change in AAT is evaluated to assess the performance of regenerative APH with reference to a field study of 135 MWe subcritical steam power plant. Keywords: air preheaters; APH; ambient air temperature; AAT; relative humidity; RH; moisture; coal drying; drying energy economics

    ABSTRACT: An experimental and analytical method has been applied to evaluate air flow pattern in three main kinds of Iranian traditional wind catchers. Results indicate that ARDAKANI wind catcher with one opening is not an efficient device, and airflow average rate in its shaft is negative. It means that one-side wind catcher has a high rate air extract specially in summer and spring which air supply is demanded. KERMANI wind catcher with two openings has a positive air flow rate in the hot months of the year, but also air flow rate in the cold months of the year is high which is not efficient. And finally, YAZDI wind catcher with four openings has a positive air flow rate in hot seasons and also air flow rate in cold seasons is positive too. Also, a good agreement between computer simulation and analytical modelling is noticeable.

    ABSTRACT: Theoretical studies suggests that the innovative capacity of companies contributes to regional development and consequently to increase local competitiveness. Covering the relationships among the social, economic, technological and cultural, this study highlights the importance of a participative system grounded on the leadership and society in search of dissemination and technologic transfer knowledge. By this way, this article aims to investigate the technology transfer mechanisms of Arranjo Produtivo Local (Brazilian acronym for 'APL') for IT, called the Center for Information Technology, or Núcleo de Tecnologia da Informação (Brazilian acronym for 'NTI') in the southwestern region of Parana, Brazil, mapping the participating companies, identifying and analysing these mechanisms and their influences on regional development. The research was defined as qualitative and quantitative, and was based on interviews and document analysis to raise the activities provided by the NTI and confirms the results of these mechanisms in order to transfer technology to member companies. It was concluded that, with the results presented and confirmed by the acting companies, the mechanisms of technology transfer offered by NTI contributed to the innovations and therefore for regional development.

    ABSTRACT: Blazing the trail as the first net-zero energy school, Richardsville Elementary School, Kentucky produces as much renewable energy as it consumes. The high performance, LEED® Gold certified facility was opened in October 2010 for 550 students. Key elements included insulated concrete form-walls, geothermal HVAC systems with decentralised and distributive pumps, active day-lighting with light shelves and Solatubes®, roof-adhered thin film photovoltaic systems, and Bio-swales®. The facility has an outdoor classroom with wireless, solar-operated weather station that measures rainfall, temperature, humidity, wind speed, carbon dioxide, solar and ultraviolet radiation and real-time software for uploading data to media centre and internet. The school operates energy-based curriculum strategy for active student learning and engagement to enhance critical thinking regarding energy conservation and environmental health sustainable technologies. From both economic and environmental perspectives, the idea of generating energy from sustainable sources without pollutant emissions has very powerful appeal and should be strongly encouraged.

    ABSTRACT: Short term measure for dealing with energy crisis is reducing consumption by: 1) improving the efficiency of all energy consuming machines; 2) eliminating the wasteful use of energy. Renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind, tidal, waves, etc., do make a significant contribution to demand for energy but they are unlikely to meet the ever increasing consumption. Long term measures may require exploitation of hydrogen to replace fossil fuels or to opt for nuclear energy. Since 3/4 of the earth is covered with water, we have inexhaustible source of hydrogen to meet our energy needs. The purpose of this paper is to promote public awareness of the methods of large scale generation of electricity and to examine critically the pros and cons of both short term and long term measures.

    ABSTRACT: An artificial neural network (ANN) model was developed to assess the energy input-output prediction in dairy farms of Iran. Data used were culled from 50 randomly selected farms using face to face questionnaire approach. The energy input-output analysis was carried out for the parameters of ANN model. Based on performance measures, single hidden layers with 16 neurons in the hidden layer were finally selected as the best configuration for predicting energy output. In this study, we calculated total energy input and output to be 53,102 and 58,315 MJ cow<sup align="right"> −1 </sup>, respectively. The predicted values of the best and optimal structure of ANN model were correlated well with actual values with coefficient of determination (R<sup align="right"> 2 </sup>) of 0.88 and root mean square error (RMSE) of 0.015. Therefore, since the ANN model can accurately predict the derived energy output of milk production system, it could be alternated by other predicting approaches such as regression.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a new method for accommodating loop flow in the process of transmission loss allocation including a generalised model for the transmission line. The developed line model is similar to the generalised circuit model based on the famous ABCD parameters. The proposed model enables unbundling the active power loss allocated to a node into two components; the first is the loss due to active power flow and the second is the loss due to reactive power flow. The same is done for the reactive power loss. Such separation of loss components makes loss allocation more transparent and explainable. In the presence of a loop flow, the power flow tracing algorithm gets faced with some nodes remaining in the system where no one of it is a pure sink node and hence gets stuck. The paper describes a method for loss allocation in the presence of loop flows based on signal flow graph manipulation techniques.
