Abstract Biodiesel is a clean energy biofuel which can be produced from waste cooking oil under transesterification and purification process by dry washing method. Dry washing purification method using hydrate magnesium silicate as a cleaning agent will improve the quality and yield of the biodiesel. This research used Response Surface Methodology with Box Behnken Design (BBD) consisting of 3 independent variables i.e. concentration of hydrate magnesium silicate, temperature and time to find the...

Abstract The aim of this paper is to present a command approach of a typical double-stage grid-connected PV system functioning under normal conditions and Symmetrical Grid Voltage Dips (SGVD). In Normal Operation Mode (NOM), the command developed rises the relatively low solar voltage to a suitable level corresponds to the Maximal Power Point Tracking (MPPT) and regulates, respectively, the dc-link voltage and the output inverter currents. It permits to inject energy into the grid at unity power...

Abstract This paper deals with site selection problems for hydrogen production plants and aims to propose a structural procedure for determining the most feasible sites. The study area is Adrar province, Algeria which has a promising wind potential. The methodology is mainly composed of two stages: the first stage is to evaluate and select the best locations for wind-powered hydrogen production using GIS and MCDM technique. the AHP is applied to weigh the criteria and compute a LSI to evaluate p...

Abstract This paper aims to investigate the possibility of integration of Electric Vehicles EVs supply’s with electricity and/or hydrogen in the road transport sector and estimate the energy supply derived from solar irradiation by using solar roads technology. The case study is road Est-Oust (road E-O) of Algeria. A Geographic Information System and spatial analysis tools are combined with spatial data and technical models to carry out these calculations. The results of this study demonstrate t...

Abstract Hybrid renewable electric energy generation system become essential to the most of electric networks and the stand-alone systems like the water pumping and telecommunication systems. The renewable sources usually required storage system due to change in the power outputs during the day. Due to increase in demand of using batteries, the charging process of battery system needed to be well managed through an adaptive controlled energy managing system. In this paper a standalone system usi...

Abstract Numerical simulations using a two-fluid Eulerian model were performed for two-dimensional axisymmetric jets from a circular 20 mm diameter nozzle. The particle size vary between 30 and 180 μm and the particle charge ranges from 0.1 to 1. The modulations of the flow structures and the turbulent characteristics of the gas flow due to the solid particles with different sizes and rates of particle loading are studied. The jet spread and the decay of the mean center line velocity are calcula...

Abstract Nowadays, efforts for substitution of fossil fuel vehicles have fixed the attention of both individual and governmental levels on seeking new sustainable energy resources. In this regard, several power sources, such as fuel cells (FCs), batteries, and gensets, have come under attention to be used in vehicles with low or zero emissions. Generally, every energy source comes with a set of challenges, which are mainly associated with the efficiency, availability, durability, and cost. This ...

Abstract Over the past decades, meta-heuristic optimization techniques have become surprisingly very popular due to their flexibility and local optima avoidance capability. This paper uses the Whale Optimization Algorithm (WOA), a swarm-based technique to tune the Proportional-Integral (PI) based Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) controllers of a grid-connected solar Photovoltaic (PV) system. The results of the PI-based Incremental Conductance (IC) MPPT technique are compared with both the con...

Abstract In this paper, a new design to enhance the thermal performance of residential water heaters is suggested and investigated. The new design consists of using a mixer inside the water tank driven by electrical power. To proceed, experimental measurements are made by using thermocouples implemented in a water heater to study the thermal behavior. It is proved that the mixer could reduce the heating time about 20 min to heat water from 25 °C to 70 °C. In addition, the temperature homogeneity...
Abstract It is vital in the prevention of the ferroresonance to consider this phenomenon from new side. The design of the equipment needs deep studies to avoid such disturbance. This paper presents a new way in ferroresonance studies, by the use of the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) in a systematic step by step process to discover the true cause of this problem. A fault tree is built to identify all possible causes leading to the unwanted top event, that is the False Trip Analysis (FTA). Among large ...
