This paper exploits a whole-building energy simulation approach to develop and evaluate demand response strategies for commercial buildings. The research is motivated by the increasing penetration of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar, which owing to their stochastic nature, means that enhanced integration of demand response measures i...
This paper examines the implementation of demand response measures, using an EnergyPlus simulation model, in a multi-purpose commercial building. The simulation model, which has been developed specifically for demand response analysis, is used to assess the effectiveness of different demand response strategies, which were considered for the buildin...
Epoxy resin and mica sheets consist the essential insulation of rotating machine stator bars. Such an insulation, although very resistant to partial discharges, is subjected to considerable electrical stresses and consequently electrical trees may ensue. In this paper, an effort is made to simulate electrical tree propagation in multiple epoxy resi...
Water droplets on the surface of epoxy resin samples were investigated under the influence of uniform electric fields. Several parameters of water droplets were investigated wrt the flashover voltage of the epoxy resin samples, such as water conductivity, droplet volume, number of droplets as well as the positioning of the droplets regarding the el...
Electrical treeing is one of the principal factors affecting the insulating capability of solid insulation. Epoxy resin with mica sheets is used in machine insulation. In the present paper, a point-plane electrode arrangement was used in order to simulate the electrical tree propagation in such an insulating system. The mica sheets investigated wer...
Epoxy resin and mica sheets are essential for the insulation of rotating machines stator bars. Although such insulation is resistant to partial discharges and mechanically strong, it may also suffer from electrical trees, which in the long run may cause ultimate failure. Electrical tree is a phenomenon which is intimately related to insulation brea...
