Toward sustainable energy usage in the power generation and construction sectors—a case study of Australia To be sustainable in energy usage in the future, there are two aspects that need to be considered:
Joseph Bentsman Power Generation Technical Committee Chair As the world population grows and becomes more developed, the energy demand steadily increases while conventional energy sources deplete.
It is a fact that power generation is becoming more expensive and its environmental impact starts to be felt. To avoid a potential energy shortfall worldwide without impacting the environment, there is an urgent need to develop new sources of clean energy, make current sources of energy cleaner and optimize energy utilization.
It is anticipated that systems, optimization and control methodologies will play a crucial role in this endeavor. This includes the organization of special sessions, workshops, and mini-courses at international conferences, the edition of special issues in scientific journals, the dissemination of relevant information upcoming conferences and events, funding opportunities, job opportunities, etc.
The technical committee members are organized around four thrusts: The Technical Committee addresses all aspects of modeling, simulation, control and optimization of energy generation and energy utilization systems.
Control problems associated with the integration into the grid of distributed power sources, particularly those based on renewable resources hydro, wind, solar, biomass, etc. To find out more about the committee and to become a member please visit:Distributed generation is an approach that employs small-scale technologies to produce electricity close to the end users of power.
DG technologies often consist of modular (and sometimes renewable-energy) generators, and they offer a number of potential benefits.
According to the Gas Research Institute, distributed generation is ‘typically [between] 25 and 25 MW’ ; 3. The term distributed capacity is less known than the terms distributed generation or distributed resources, probably because it is even more difficult to clearly define that term.
a working paper entitled ‘Distributed power. The paper presents the concept and structure of micro grid technology based on distributed generation, and especially introduces the key technology of micro network which includes five parts: micro-grid planning and design, micro-grid communication technology, micro-grid power electronic technology, micro-grid control and energy management system.
In this paper, the performance analysis of wind turbine as a distributed generation unit is presented.
In this study a model of wind power is driven by an induction machine. Wind power that is distributed generation is capable of supplying power to ac power distribution network.
Wind power generation system is modeled. Research Papers. Framing paper: Derisking Decarbonization: Making Green Energy Investments Blue Chip Principal authors: Dan Reicher, Jeff Brown, and David Fedor Frank Wolak, Retail Pricing to Support Cost-Effective Distributed Generation Investment.
