Experimental Investigation On Biogas Production From Anaerobic Co-Digestion Of Water Hyacinth And Fish Waste

AbstractCo-digestion of various wastes and biomass feedstock has been shown to improve the digestibility of the materials and biogas yield. In this study, the co-digestion of water hyacinth and fish waste was studied at different mixing proportions. The anaerobic digestion was carried out in batch digester reactors sized 500 ml and were charged to 10 % of total vol-ume. Co-digestion was conducted for a retention period of 21 days in mesophilic temperature ranging 25.3 °C to 33.4 °C. The res...

Transient Stability Analysis Of Nigeria Power System: Multimachine Approach

ABSTRACT The recent power sector reform in Nigeria has thrown up enormous challenges in this sector, ranging from the construction of more power stations, construction of new transmission lines and substations. The existing network of 8-plants and 26 bus-bars expanded to the proposed network of 16 generating plants with 49 bus-bars. This network expansion requires reappraisal for power evacuation capabilities, relay systems setting and establishment of stability margins for adverse syste...
