Abstract

In this paper a new approach has been introduced to find the optimum capacity of a wind farm to cooperate with a hydro-pumped-storage in order to maximize the income and optimize the payback period of their combination. First, Monte Carlo method has been used to generate the annual price and wind speed values. Then, an operating policy has been considered to schedule each unit generating and saving the produced energy by the wind farm. Subsequently, simulations have been carried out in MATLAB M-File environment to show the effectiveness of the presented method. Finally, results are presented in various circumstances to help the owner to select the optimum condition for constructing a wind hydro-pumped-storage system.

Abstract

In the present world, the spectrum efficiency along with the capacity and coverage of wireless networks are being improved by wireless specialists. Wireless link performance could be enhanced and improved by using multiple antenna technology called Space time wireless technology. There exists some advancement in the present MIMO techniques which could further improve the overall wireless Local Area Network (LANs) and Wide Area Network (WANs). In Multipath fading performance gain is very important which could be achieved by using an efficient Space-Time Coding (STC) technique. This Space Time coding along with Alamouti Scheme is a very vibrant research topic. In the forthcoming generation of mobile communication there will be a need of high data rate, reliable communication link and vast multimedia capabilities, STBC is the one solution for these. This paper presents the Space-Time Block Codes (STBC) for wireless networks using Alamouti Scheme in which multiple antennas are being used at both transmitter and receiver. The simulations have been done in MATLAB.

Abstract

In this paper the authors tried to design a under excitation limiter and a power system stabilizer which can operate without any kind of interaction. The under excitation limiter (UEL) is intended to prevent reduction of generator excitation to a level where the steady state stability limit or the stator core end-region heating limit is exceeded. The power system stabilizer (PSS) uses auxiliary stabilizing signals to control the excitation system so as to improve power system dynamic performance.
