Subsequently, the book presents the physical and technical principles of promising ways of utilizing renewable energies. The authors provide the important data and parameter sets for the major possibilities of renewable energies utilization which allow an economic and environmental assessment.
This book covers the recent development and progress of the wind energy conversion system. The chapters are contributed by prominent researchers in the field of wind energy and cover grid integration issues, modern control theories applied in wind energy conversion system, and dynamic and transient stability studies.
The cost of operating a building far exceeds the cost of constructing it, and yet until recently little attention was paid to the impact of solar radiation on the costs of heating, cooling and ventilation. And now that there has been a surge in interest in energy efficiency and solar design, architects and designers need a practical guide to the modelling and application of solar energy data.
Landfill gas from a source of green energy, clean, renewable and can be used to create
electricity, or used in the energy industry. This paper reviews the potential energy recovery
landfill gas from municipal solid waste, to reducing methane emissions in particular, and reduced
greenhouse gas emissions in general. In addition, this paper provides an assessment using the model of
methane generated from landfill municipal solid waste and generate energy potential of gas recovered.
In particular, this paper uses a life cycle assessment methods ......
This book analyses the key issues of the offshore wind farm's energy transmission and grid integration infrastructure. But, for this purpose, there are not evaluated all the electric configurations. In the present book is deeply evaluated a representative case. This representative case is built starting from three generic characteristics of an offshore wind farm: the rated power, the distance to shore and the average wind speed of the location.
This book covers a number of topics in heat and mass transfer processes for a variety
of industrial applications. The research papers provide information and guidelines in
terms of theory, mathematical modeling and experimental findings in many research
areas relevant to the design of industrial processes and equipment. The equipment
includes air heaters, cooling towers, chemical system vaporization, high temperature
polymerization and hydrogen production by steam reforming.
During the last years, spectacular progress has been made in all aspects of heat transfer.
Heat transfer is a branch of engineering science and technology that deals with the
analysis of the rate of transfer thermal energy. Its fundamental modes are conduction,
convection, radiation, convection vs. conduction and mass transfer. It has a broad application
to many diff erent branches of science, technology and industry, ranging from
biological, medical and chemical systems, to common practice of thermal engineering
This book consists of a collection of articles describing the emerging and integrated
area of Energy,Natural Resources and Environmental Economics. A majority of the
authors are researchers doing applied work in economics, ﬁnance, and managemen
science and are based in the Nordic countries. These countries have a long tradition
of managing natural resources. Many of the applications are therefore founded on
Everything we consume or use requires energy to produce and package, to distribute
to shops or front doors, to operate, and then to be got rid ofi. The global demand for
energy is expected to increase but conventional energy sources are limited and have
carbon emissions to the environment. The utilization of renewable energy sources
such as wind energy, or solar energy, among others, is currently of greater interest.
Developing a smart grid has become an urgent global priority as its economic,
environmental, and societal benefit willbe enjoyed by generations to come. In-
formation and communications technologies are at the core of the smart grid
vision as they will empower today’s power grid with the capability of supporting
two-way energy and information flow, isolating and restoring power outages more
quickly, facilitating the integration of renewable energy sources into the grid and
empowering the consumer with tools for optimizing their energy consumption....

Since the earliest algorithm of Model Predictive Control was proposed by French
engineer Richalet and his colleagues in 1978, the explicit background of industrial
application has made MPC develop rapidly. Different from most other control
algorithms, the research trajectory of MPC is originated from engineering application
and then expanded to theoretical field, while ordinary control algorithms often have
applications after sufficient theoretical work.

This book has been written to present elementary practical and efficient applications in saving energy concept, as well as propose a solitary action for this category of topics. The book aims to illustrate various methods in treatment the concept of thermal insulation such as processes and the attempt to build an efficient passive building model.
Mathematical modelling is the process of formulating an abstract model
in terms of mathematical language to describe the complex behaviour of
a real system. Mathematical models are quantitative models and often
expressed in terms of ordinary differential equations and partial differential
equations. Mathematical models can also be statistical models,
fuzzy logic models and empirical relationships. In fact, any model description
using mathematical language can be called a mathematical
This major drawback led to the development of a more consistent approach that
modelled inefficiency effects as an explicit function of certain factors specific to the
firm, and all the parameters are estimated in one step using maximum likelihood procedure.
Authors in this category include Kumbhakar, Ghosh and McGuckin (1991), Reifschneider
and Stevenson (1999), Huang and Liu (1994), and Battese and Coelli (1995), who proposed
a stochastic frontier production fuction for panel data.
Since Model Predictive Heuristic Control (MPHC), the earliest algorithm of Model Predictive
Control (MPC), was proposed by French engineer Richalet and his colleagues in 1978, the
explicit background of industrial application has made MPC develop rapidly to satisfy the
increasing request from modern industry. Different from many other control algorithms, the
research history of MPC is originated from application and then expanded to theoretical field,
while ordinary control algorithms often has applications after sufficient theoretical research....
