The automobile industry and technology are putting a great significance in improving vehicles to become more fuel economical, but with incremental costs relative to conventional vehicle technologies; these new vehicles are electric vehicles (EV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). However, their significant...
Chapter
The growing interest in being environmentally conscious and enabling sustainability had prompted an increasing number of developed countries to support public and private financing of renewable energy (RE) projects. Also, the abundant availability of renewable resources and cost-effective energy conversion technology favored this growth. Among the...
Conference Paper
Integrated Work System (IWS) and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) are two popular approaches used by production firms to identify and eliminate production losses. In a highly competitive business environment, companies must increase their efficiency in the manufacturing process to support resilient business continuity. While OEE is widely used...

Background: The outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) highlights the global health emergency. To limit the rate of COVID-19 transmission to health care workers, adequate personal protective equipment's (PPE's) are required. Emerging reports indicate that the widespread usage of PPE during the COVID-19 outbreak has exacerbated plastic contamin...
Article
Full-text available
Farm machinery like water sprinklers (WS) and pesticide sprayers (PS) are becoming quite pop-ular in the agricultural sector. The WS and PS are two distinct types of machinery, mostly pow-ered using conventional energy sources. In recent times, the battery and solar-powered WS and PS have also emerged. With the current WS and PS, the main drawback...

Various renewable energy resources (RERs) require common platform for integration, which evolves the concept of microgrid. The microgrid is considered as an open energy system in which power flow is bidirectional in nature; hence, control is more complex. The effective operation, i.e., stability, frequency and power-sharing, of microgrid is primari...
Article
Full-text available
Due to the rapid growth in power consumption at domestic and industrial appliances, distributed energy generation units face difficulties in supplying power efficiently. The integration of distributed energy resources (DERs) and energy storage system (ESS) provide a solution to these problems using appropriate management schemes to achieve optimal...
Chapter
Today, the increasing necessity for integrating Renewable Energy Resources (RERs) in electric power generation resolves the existing dependency on imported fossil fuel (FF) resources. The need to protect nature and minimize the environmental contamination brought about by FF emissions has prompted the inescapable certainty of utilizing incorporated...
Chapter
Increase in demand for electricity plays a vital role in adapting to global warming. The increase in distributed generation, such as wind, solar, fuel cells, and biomass, will create a significant impact on future power generation. In such cases, the microgrid and the distributed generator and its loads are a single block of the control system to i...
Article
Full-text available
Smart grid (SG), an evolving concept in the modern power infrastructure, enables the two-way flow of electricity and data between the peers within the electricity system networks (ESN) and its clusters. The self-healing capabilities of SG allow the peers to become active partakers in ESN. In general, the SG is intended to replace the fossil fuel-ri...
Article
Full-text available
With the ever-increasing demand for energy and a growing concern for the non-renewability of the energy sources as well as the environmental pollution, renewable energy harvesting systems have emerged as one of the energy technologies globally. In this context, this research work addresses a novel, clean and environmentally friendly renewable energ...
Conference Paper
Reinforced Concrete (RC) is globally used to make the building structure strong and more durable. Civil and structural engineers face major challenges as concrete structures deteriorate and get weaker. Recent development in field of assessing and monitoring the health condition of the building structure have shown that corrosion in concrete reinfor...
Conference Paper
Amongst all the energy sources from human motion, footstep has the potential of producing electrical energy as an alternative source to non-conventional renewable energy. Researchers have shown that human footstep kinetic energy can be converted to electrical energy by devised mechanism for low power application such as powering lights, radio and c...
Article
Full-text available
Traditionally, remote and urban communities worldwide have been supplied electricity almost completely by fossil fuel generators to accommodate for electricity needs. Currently, the integration of renewable energy sources (RESs) into the current power generation systems can offer attractive economic and environmental merits, including considerable...

Article
Full-text available
The corrosion of steel reinforcement in concrete often leads to huge unbudgeted expenses for maintaining, monitoring and renovating an infrastructure. This is mainly due to the presence of salts or chemical chlorides that pose a danger to the concrete structures. The determination of the existence of these corrosive salts is vital for defining the...
Patent
A portable Electromagnetic Induction (EMI) sensor for non-destructive concrete corrosion estimation is disclosed. The sensor, which uses a Multiple Loop Coil (MLC), is able to detect and differentiate the chemical contents present in a concrete structure. The sensor is integrated with various component such as batteries, measuring sensor head, micr...
