ADVANCED VEHICLE SIMULATOR (ADVISOR) PERFORMANCE CHARACTERIZATION OF A SERIES HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLE

Abstract: Series hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) formed by a combination of internal combustion engine and batteries/ultra capacitors in the appropriate ways, provides high-performance and high efficiency power systems for HEV applications. This paper discusses the performance characteristics of series HEV using advanced vehicle simulator. Different sizes of motor and engine were utilized with various battery capacities to explore the optimal component combinations. A comparative simulati...

Analysis of Energy Auditing in Nigerian Power Systems

Abstract Energy  is  one  of  the  major  drivers  for  the  economic  development  of  any  country.  In  order  to  reduce  energy consumptions  for  sustainable  development, continuous  energy audit  of industrial  machines  become  necessary. Energy  audit  is  one  of  the  most  comprehensive  methods  in  achieving  energy  savings  in  industry  and  thus reducing  excessive  energy  consumption.  This  paper  analyzes  energy  audi...

Cuckoo Search Algorithm Optimization Approaches for Solving Economic Load Dispatch: A Review

ABSTRACT  Cuckoo  search  algorithm  (CSA)  is  an  effective  and  highly  reliable  swarm  intelligence  based optimization  approach.  It  is  a  technique  of  determining  the  most  efficient,  low  cost  and  reliable operation of a power system by dispatching the available electricity generation resources to supply the  load  on  the  system.  This  paper  presents  a  comprehensive  review  of  CSA  application  in Economic Load Dispatch (EL...

RADIOISOTOPE THERMOELECTRIC POWER GENERATION

Sustainable energy sources have been a topic of interest over a period of time for many researchers. Nuclear energy is one of the sources that have long been exploited for generating heat and electricity both in large scale and small scale. One of the methods for converting this heat into electrical power is using thermoelectric generators. Radioisotope thermoelectric generators are currently the longest-lived sources of energy; it does not require any human maintenance or refuelling. This pa...

Abstract:Wireless  power  transfer  system  charging multiple devices, through inductive coupling method which is  classified  under  near  field  transfer  region.  In  this project,  we  intend  to  achieve  wireless  power  transfer charging  multiple  devices  such  as  mobile  phone, toothbrush and other low end power devices without the use  of  conventi...

An Introduction to Adaptive QAM Modulation Schemes for Known and Predicted Channels

ABSTRACT | A major disadvantage with fixed modulation (nonadaptive) on channels with varying signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is that the bit-error-rate (BER) probability performance is changing with the channel quality. Most applications require a certain maximum BER and there is normally no reason for providing a smaller BER than required. An adaptive modulation scheme, on the contrary, can be designed to have a BER which is constant for all channel SNRs. The s...

A Novel Mobile WiMAX Solution for Higher Throughput

Abstract— The IEEE 802.16 standard, also known as WiMAX,has emerged as an exciting technology for broadband wirelesscommunications with potentials to offer high throughput andsupport high bandwidth demanding applications. WiMAX,however, has yet to prove its effectiveness when the end terminalsare not fixed and have the capacity to move from one place toanother at different speeds. Recent studies suggest that whileWiMAX (802.16e) has the potential to deliver a data rate up to 75Mb/s for fixe...

Laboratory Report on PID Controller Design for DC Motors Speed Control

ABSTRACTThis experiment is to design PID controller to supervise and control the speed response of a DC motor and MATLAB program is used for calculation and simulation. PID controllers are widely used in an industrial plants because of their simplicity and robustness. Industrial processes are subjected to variation in parameters and parameter perturbations; hence, PID controllers that can provide good closed-loop response characteristics are chosen.TABLE OF CONTENTAbstract ......................

A TECHNICAL REPORT ON POTENTIALS AND DRAWBACKS OF SOLAR ENERGY AS A SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOURCE FOR NIGERIA

ABSTRACTThe paper discusses the solar energy potentials and drawbacks as sustainable alternative energy source for Nigeria, the numerous issues involved in harnessing solar energy and clearly articulates a road map to enable Nigeria tap into this huge potential. Research indicate that, Nigeria lying in the tropics, receives abundant sunshine where about 1500PJ (about 258 million barrels of oil equivalent) could be available to Nigeria annually from solar energy if solar appliances with ...

REPORT ON STUDENT INDUSTRIAL WORK EXPERIENCE SCHEME (SIWES) TRAINING PROGRAMME

ABSTRACT The Student Industrial Working Scheme (SIWES) is a program that was designed by the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) with the aim of aiding young science and engineering university students to have an experience of working in industries and companies based on their fields of study in order to extend their learning outside the classrooms and lecture halls. This is a report which contains information about ...

ELECTRICAL POWER GENERATING SYSTEMS CONSIDERING RENEWABLE AND NON-RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES NIGERIA AS A CASE STUDY

ABSTRACTThis report brings to the fore, The Renewable Energy Sources presently accessible to the human species, and the feasibility of harnessing these energy sources in Nigeria. Since the dawn of the 21st Century, Global Warming, Carbon Emission Reductions and Renewable Energy Sources have all been major topics of discussion, permeating into the facets of every socio-economic and political forum such as, Davos Economic Forum, G7 and G20 Conventions, and has spawned specific platforms for dis...

SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF ELECTRONIC VOTING SYSTEM

In democratic countries, voting is an vital tool to collect and re-act people‘s views. In the elections, the election of member of the assembly, the head of local/state government election, and others, a voter can cast vote after going to the designated polling place and checking his identity.  Conventionally, voting booth is used for casting votes in both centralized and distributed places. Voting is done under the supervision of authorized parties. Counting of votes is done manually ...

IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF A. C. VOLTAGE STABILIZER USING PARALLEL CASCADED RELAYS.

ABSTRACT:This work entails design, construction, packaging and evaluation of a prototype  automatic a.c. voltage stabilizer using parallel cascaded relays. The unit was cascaded to provide more switching contacts on the auto-transformer. The overall system design is a compact assembly encased in a portable metal box with handle which can operate on 90v minimal input voltage. In this paper, a parallel cascaded relay  what is essent...
