Questions related to Power Generation
I'm interest in MHD power generator, especially using salt water flow under transverse magnetic field.
In this paper, they assume that the e.m.f as f0=4w(B_0)(V_E) constant value independent of the hall current. However I think that if we connect the electrode, the ions are eliminated by reduction and oxidation on the electrode surface. So the removing charge effect will decrease the e.m.f value.
So I want to know my guess is reasonable and way how to get the maximum power produced by the device.
I need how signal from Governor passes to Turbine, gear box and alternator to develop particular desired power?

What are the most commonly used machine and deep learning algorithms? Specifically, for forecasting hourly solar power generation.
Power system operators maintain the stability of the grid through several key measures and strategies. These include:
1. Load Balancing: Power system operators continuously monitor the supply and demand of electricity on the grid. They ensure that the power generation matches the load requirements to maintain a balance between supply and demand. Load forecasting techniques are used to predict future demand, enabling operators to make necessary adjustments in power generation and distribution.
2. Frequency Control: Power system operators closely monitor the system frequency, which is an indicator of the balance between supply and demand. They employ automatic generation control (AGC) systems to adjust the output of power generators in real-time to maintain a stable frequency. If the frequency deviates from the standard range, corrective measures are taken to restore it to the desired level.
3. Voltage Control: Maintaining stable voltage levels is crucial for the efficient operation of the grid. Power system operators utilize voltage control devices, such as transformers, capacitors, and voltage regulators, to regulate and stabilize voltage levels. These devices are adjusted in real-time to ensure that voltage remains within acceptable limits, preventing voltage fluctuations that could disrupt the grid's stability.
4. Reactive Power Compensation: Reactive power is required to maintain voltage levels within acceptable limits. Power system operators employ reactive power compensation devices, such as synchronous condensers and static VAR compensators (SVCs), to provide or absorb reactive power as needed. By managing reactive power flow, operators can maintain grid stability and voltage control.
5. Grid Monitoring and Control: Power system operators utilize advanced monitoring and control systems to continuously monitor the grid's performance. Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, along with real-time data from sensors and meters, provide operators with detailed information on grid conditions. This enables them to identify potential issues and take corrective actions promptly.
6. Grid Planning and Expansion: Power system operators also play a role in long-term grid planning and expansion. They analyze future load growth, renewable energy integration, and infrastructure requirements to ensure that the grid remains stable and reliable. This involves assessing the need for new transmission lines, substations, and power generation capacity to meet future demand.
7. Emergency Response and Restoration: In the event of disruptions or emergencies, power system operators are responsible for coordinating emergency response efforts. They work to quickly identify and isolate faults, reroute power, and restore the grid's stability. This involves close coordination with grid operators, power generation companies, and other stakeholders to minimize the impact of disruptions.

Can we model an information system to create a sync between different power generation units to generate power in most economic way based on current weather condition?
I made this hybrid power plant simulation with HOMER where I assumed the solar power plant system doesn't have enough irradiation so it can't produce any power and it's just the wind power plant system that worked. It turned out that the result is the consumption power (AC Primary Load) is bigger than the power generated by the wind turbine. Is it okay? How do I solve this problem?

Many developing countries utilize various multiple methods for power generation. such as gas and oil turbine, windmill, thermal, nuclear, and hydroelectric depends on topography and natural resources.
As the penetration of grid-connected solar energy increases, is it technically possible to replace most of the conventional power generations including coal, gas and natural gas in modern power grid? Is there any critical technical challenges we need to overcome? There are various researches ongoing such as virtual inertial (VI)-based inverter, maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and hybrid energy storage system (ESS) to address voltage/frequency instability, IV & PV non-lineality and solar energy non-availability during night time respectively.
Plus, there are many technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), smart grid, blockchain and other advanced terminologies available for solar energy. From these perspectives, will the solar energy eventually replaces conventional power generation or it will be limited as a supplementary energy source for existing power system which is ideal for remote and vast area?

Synchronous generators are rated in MVA where as when we refer to a power plant we refer to their MW rating? Why is this so?
Renewable utility-scale power generation, such as wind, solar, etc, has become much cost-effective and more and more important in the past few years. However, the lower energy transition efficiency and the periodic generating feature constrains the development of renewable energy. These years, energy storage has become a hot research topic. My questions are: Is energy storage really the solution of future energy? If the answer is yes, which kind of energy storage will be the best available technology or the most promising technology for utility-scale power generation? Are there any technical issues that constrain the application of energy storage technologies? When will energy storage technologies become widely applicable?

I am trying to solve this problem where i need to calculate the optimum capacity of PGU in combined cooling heating system (CCHP) using Genetic algorithm.
I have these equations:
The natural gas consumption by the PGU with respect to time can be expressed using the following equation:
Fpgu_t = Epgu_t/ηpgu_t .........(1)
where Fpgu is the natural gas consumed by the PGU.
The efficiency of PGU which is ηpgu, can be calculated as follows:
ηpgu_t = a+bf_t+cf_t^2..............(2)
where a, b, and c are the constant coefficients, and f_t is the partial load rate with respect to time which is the ratio of electricity generated by the PGU to the maximum output (PGU capacity) and can be defined as:
f_t = Epgu_t/(Ecap)...........(3)
A common linear relationship exists between the gas consumption and electricity generated by the PGU , which is widely used to optimize the CCHP systems and is expressed as follows:
Fpgu_t = α×Epgu_t+β........(4)
here i have the values of a,b and c for equation 2 and α and β for equation 4. Also i have common linear relation between the fuel consumption (Fpgu_t )and electricity generated by PGU (Epgu_t) which i have attached.
Other than that i also have a load profile which will be used to calculate the optimum capacity of PGU.
Please anyone can help me with that? I have consulted many different journal papers but i am still very much confused in this part.
Please help. Thanks everyone.
Dear fellow researchers,
is there anyone who has access to, or who can provide me with a good reference of, curves that can provide me with quantitative information about how the electric and thermal power generated by a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell in combined heat and power mode vary with the load of the fuel cell system?
To be more specific, what I would need are curves of the type:
electrical efficiency vs SOFC load
exhaust temperature vs SOFC load
exhaust mass flow vs SOFC load.
I am trying to test the potential use of an SOFC for transportation purposes, and it would be very helpful to have access to this type of information
Currently, I am selecting a power generator for Dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) reactor. I am wondering between 02 devices: AC sinusoidal power generator or Pulse power generator. Which power supply device provides the best performance on the DBD reactor? And in accordance with the method of calculating discharge power DBD using V-Q curve Lissajous (Because I currently have high voltage probes 1000x and monitor capacitors. I don't want to use the high current probe to calculate the discharge power for some reason I don't have this device right now)
If I want to change both voltage V and frequency F for DBD reactor, I need to choose which power supply device. Please suggest me some specific power generator supplies.
I sincerely thank you and wish all the best!

How exactly is the air or wet cooled condenser sized and controlled in a power plant?
For example, for a wet cooled condenser, is the design/nominal exhaust turbine pressure calculated based on the 1- max wet bulb temperature experienced onsite 2- average wet bulb temperature 3- or average max?
Also, while the plant is operating, say one day the wet bulb temperature was higher than the design value, do plant operators simply increase the cooling water flow rate to ensure the exhaust pressure is fixed or let the turbine exhaust pressure increase which would slightly hurt its power generation?
In other words, do we size and/or control the condenser such that the turbine exhaust pressure is fixed or the exhaust pressure is allowed to float based on weather conditions?
Thank you all
