TL;DR: In this paper, a modified price penalty factor is proposed to solve the combined economic emission dispatch (CEED) problem by considering both the economy and emission objectives, which is converted into a single objective function using a Price Penalty Factor approach.
Abstract: Economic load dispatch (ELD) and economic emission dispatch (EED) have been applied to obtain optimal fuel cost and optimal emission of generating units, respectively. Combined economic emission dispatch (CEED) problem is obtained by considering both the economy and emission objectives. This biobjective CEED problem is converted into a single objective function using a price penalty factor approach. A novel modified price penalty factor is proposed to solve the CEED problem. In this paper, evolutionary computation (EC) methods such as genetic algorithm (GA), micro GA (MGA), and evolutionary programming (EP) are applied to obtain ELD solutions for three-, six-, and 13-unit systems. Investigations showed that EP was better among EC methods in solving the ELD problem. EP-based CEED problem has been tested on IEEE 14-, 30-, and 118-bus systems with and without line flow constraints. A nonlinear scaling factor is also included in EP algorithm to improve the convergence performance for the 13 units and IEEE test systems. The solutions obtained are quite encouraging and useful in the economic emission environment.
TL;DR: In this paper, the interfacial layer formed between Li7La3Zr2O12 (LLZ) and LiCoO2 during thin film deposition was characterized using a combination of microscopy and electrochemical measurement techniques.
Abstract: The interfacial layer formed between a lithium-ion conducting solid electrolyte, Li7La3Zr2O12 (LLZ), and LiCoO2 during thin film deposition was characterized using a combination of microscopy and electrochemical measurement techniques. Cyclic voltammetry confirmed that lithium extraction occurs across the interface on the first cycle, although the nonsymmetrical redox peaks indicate poor electrochemical performance. Using analytical transmission electron microscopy, the reaction layer (∼50 nm) was analyzed. Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy revealed that the concentrations of some of the elements (Co, La, and Zr) varied gradually across the layer. Nano-beam electron diffraction of this layer revealed that the layer contained neither LiCoO2 nor LLZ, but some spots corresponded to the crystal structure of La2CoO4. It was also demonstrated that reaction phases due to mutual diffusion are easily formed between LLZ and LiCoO2 at the interface. The reaction layer formed during high temperature processing is likely one of the major reasons for the poor lithium insertion/extraction at LLZ/LiCoO2 interfaces.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors presented the experimental investigations of the resistance to impact loading of cement mortar slabs reinforced with four natural fibres, coir, sisal, jute, hibiscus cannebinus, and four different fibre contents (0.5, 1.0%, 1.5% and 2.5%) and three fiber lengths (20mm, 30mm and 40mm) were considered.
Abstract: This paper presents the experimental investigations of the resistance to impact loading of cement mortar slabs (1:3, size: 300 mm × 300 mm × 20 mm) reinforced with four natural fibres, coir, sisal, jute, hibiscus cannebinus and subjected to impact loading using a simple projectile test. Four different fibre contents (0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5% and 2.5%—by weight of cement) and three fibre lengths (20 mm, 30 mm and 40 mm) were considered. The results obtained have shown that the addition of the above natural fibres has increased the impact resistance by 3–18 times than that of the reference (i.e. plain) mortar slab. Of the four fibres, coir fibre reinforced mortar slab specimens have shown the best performance based on the set of chosen indicators, i.e. the impact resistance (Ru), residual impact strength ratio (Irs), impact crack-resistance ratio (Cr) and the condition of fibre at ultimate failure.
TL;DR: In this paper, the effect of variation in the Zn substitution and its impact on particle size, magnetic properties like MS, HC, Curie temperature, thermomagnetic coefficient and associated water content was investigated.
Abstract: Co(1−x)ZnxFe2O4 and Mn(1−x)ZnxFe2O4 ( x = 0.1 – 0.5 ) nanoparticles less than 12 nm are prepared by chemical co-precipitation method which could be used for ferrofluid preparation. X-ray diffraction (XRD), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Vibrational sample magnetometer (VSM) and Thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA) are utilized in order to study the effect of variation in the Zn substitution and its impact on particle size, magnetic properties like MS, HC, Curie temperature, thermomagnetic coefficient and associated water content. Atomic absorption spectroscopy was used for the estimation of cobalt, zinc and manganese and Fe3+ ion was estimated using spectrophotometer. The saturation magnetization of the Co–Zn substituted ferrite nanoparticles decreases continuously with the increase in Zn concentration, whereas for the Mn–Zn substituted ferrite nanoparticle the saturation magnetization was maximum for x = 0.2 and decreases on further increase in Zn concentration. The particle size decreases with the increase in the Zn concentration for both Co–Zn and Mn–Zn ferrites. The estimation of associated water content, which increases with the Zn concentration, plays a vital role for the correct determination of cation contents. The Curie temperature and the temperature at which maximum value of thermomagnetic coefficient observed simultaneously decrease with the increase in the initial substitution degree of zinc.
TL;DR: In this paper, waste frying oil was used as an alternative fuel for diesel engine and the performance and exhaust emissions of a single-cylinder diesel engine was evaluated using diesel, non-edible vegetable oil (without preheating) and waste-frying oil preheated to two different inlet temperatures (75 and 135 °C).
Abstract: In the present experimental investigation, waste frying oil a non-edible vegetable oil was used as an alternative fuel for diesel engine. The high viscosity of the waste frying oil was reduced by preheating. The properties of waste frying oil such as viscosity, density, calorific value and flash point were determined. The effect of temperature on the viscosity of waste frying oil was evaluated. It was determined that the waste frying oil requires a heating temperature of 135 °C to bring down its viscosity to that of diesel at 30 °C. The performance and exhaust emissions of a single cylinder diesel engine was evaluated using diesel, waste frying oil (without preheating) and waste frying oil preheated to two different inlet temperatures (75 and 135 °C). The engine performance was improved and the CO and smoke emissions were reduced using preheated waste frying oil. It was concluded from the results of the experimental investigation that the waste frying oil preheated to 135 °C could be used as a diesel fuel substitute for short-term engine operation.
