Power Requirements Of Biogas Upgrading By Water Scrubbing And Biomethane Compression: Comparative Analysis Of Various Plant Configurations, Wojciech M. Budzianowski, Christophe E. Wylock, Przemysław A. Marciniak

Wojciech Budzianowski

Biogas upgrading by water scrubbing followed by biomethane compression is an environmentally benign process. It may be achieved using various plant configurations characterised by various power requirements with associated effects on biomethane sustainability. Therefore, the current study has been undertaken to systematically investigate the power requirements of a range of water scrubbing options. Two groups of water scrubbing are analysed: (1) high pressure water scrubbing (HPWS) and (2) near-atmospheric pressure water scrubbing (NAPWS). A water scrubbing plant model is constructed, experimentally validated and simulated for seven upgrading plant configurations. Simulation results show that the power requirement of biogas upgrading in ...

Total Chain Integration Of Sustainable Biorefinery Systems, Wojciech M. Budzianowski, Karol Postawa

Wojciech Budzianowski

Biorefineries are increasingly important commercial facilities for the production of biofuels, biopower and various biomaterials from biomass with potentials to displace several existing industries currently based on polluting and finite fossil resources. Biorefinery systems consist of biorefinery facilities and their entire value chain. Integration of biorefinery systems aims at optimising the use of energies and materials in the total chain from biomass plantations to end product utilisation and is therefore capable of successfully improving economic viability and sustainability of biorefineries. Total Chain Integration can minimise capital and operating expenditures, maximise the quality, quantity and value of biorefinery bioproducts as well ...


Evolutionary View Planning For Optimized Uav Terrain Modeling In A Simulated Environment, Ronald A. Martin, Ivan Rojas, Kevin W. Franke, John Hedengren 2016 Brigham Young University

Evolutionary View Planning For Optimized Uav Terrain Modeling In A Simulated Environment, Ronald A. Martin, Ivan Rojas, Kevin W. Franke, John Hedengren

All Faculty Publications

This work demonstrates the use of genetic algorithms in optimized view planning for 3D reconstruction applications using small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The quality of UAV site models is currently highly dependent on manual pilot operations or grid-based automation solutions. When applied to 3D structures, these approaches can result in gaps in the total coverage or inconsistency in final model resolution. Genetic algorithms can effectively explore the search space to locate image positions that produce high quality models in terms of coverage and accuracy. A fitness function is defined, and optimization parameters are selected through semi-exhaustive search. A novel simulation ...

Compact Dual-Mode Microstrip Band Reject Filters Based On Koch Fractal Geometry, Hayder S. Ahmed, Ali J. Salim, Jawad K. Ali 2016 Deprtment of Electrical Engineering, University of Technology, Iraq

Compact Dual-Mode Microstrip Band Reject Filters Based On Koch Fractal Geometry, Hayder S. Ahmed, Ali J. Salim, Jawad K. Ali

Hayder S. Ahmed

In this paper, a new fractal based microstrip dual-mode band stop filter (BSF) has been presented. The proposed filter structure is essentially based on that of the triangular patch resonators with an embedded slit structure. The Koch fractal geometry has been applied to the uncoupled side lengths of the triangular patch resonator. The filter structure has been modeled and its performance is evaluated using the commercially available EM simulator, Sonnet. Results reveal that the resulting dual-mode response is highly dependent on the uncoupled side lengths of the triangular patch resonator. Parametric study has been conducted to explore the effect of ...


Solution Of Fully-Coupled Shallow Water Equations And Contaminant Transport Using A Primitive Variable Riemann Solver And A Semi-Discrete Supg Method, Faranak Behzadi 2016 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Solution Of Fully-Coupled Shallow Water Equations And Contaminant Transport Using A Primitive Variable Riemann Solver And A Semi-Discrete Supg Method, Faranak Behzadi

Masters Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

In the present dissertation, a finite volume and a finite element model are developed and tuned for the solution of the fully-coupled two-dimensional Shallow Water and Contaminant transport Equations with arbitrary bed topography and wetting-drying fronts. A Riemann-solver finite volume scheme, using primitive variables rather than conserved variables, and a semi-discrete Streamline Upwind Petrov-Galerkin (SUPG) method in finite element context are applied to compare the performance of these two numerical models. The Riemann-solver scheme is based on the unstructured finite volume discretization using primitive-variable Roe-flux approximation with an entropy fix. Second-order accuracy in space and time, an implicit scheme based ...

The Influence Of The Electric Supply Industry On Economic Growth In Less Developed Countries, Edward Richard Bee

Dissertations

This study measures the impact that electrical outages have on manufacturing production in 135 less developed countries using stochastic frontier analysis and data from World Bank’s Investment Climate surveys. Outages of electricity, for firms with and without backup power sources, are the most frequently cited constraint on manufacturing growth in these surveys.

Outages are shown to reduce output below the production frontier by almost five percent in Africa and by a lower percentage in South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East and North Africa. Production response to outages is quadratic in form. Outages also increase labor cost, reduce ...
