    Constantly growing demand for energy cannot continue indefinitely relies only upon fossil fuel. The earth's finite supply will eventually exhaust. Energy is a major key to industrial development and the world's well-being. The awareness of depletion of fossil fuel resources has challenged scientists and engineers to search for alternative energy sources that can meet energy demand for the near fut...

    Renewable energy generation has the advantage of sustainability and low carbon gas emission. Many countries are building power plants using green energy sources such as wind turbines and photovoltaic systems. Whilst these big energy generation stations will help in addressing environmental and energy dependence issues, power grid congestion during peak demand periods remains a serious challenge th...

    In recent years, significant focus has been given to smart-grid and its potential for significantly improving the power grid. As a result, many countries are considering deploying smart-grid technologies. Unfortunately, the MENA region including Jordan, has not kept pace with these developments. There is a need for countries in the region to move forward with necessary practical and policy decisio... View full abstract»

    With wind energy penetration in energy markets increasing as part of the solution to meeting renewable energy targets, the need for smoothing of intermittent power generation is becoming more of a necessity. This paper looks at pumped hydro storage as a method for storing energy from the wind and shows the development of a hybrid system, where wind energy is harnessed to drive a mechanical pump to...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1681 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, the design, fabrication, cost and distilled water production (production) performance of a Tubular Solar Still (TSS) is presented. Since the TSS cover and trough are made of cheap and locally acquisitioned lightweight materials, the TSS can be formed into a desirable size easily. Thus, the weight per unit length is 0.65kg/m and it is expected that the production cost is about 484/m<... View full abstract»

    The adoption of renewable energy based systems for electricity generation, leaving aside fossil based energy systems is of paramount importance to humanity. The purpose of this paper is the design of a small wind rotor that meets the electric power requirement of a small house in Guildford, UK. The conceptual design developed comes from the evaluation of the existing science and technology in term... View full abstract»

    This paper suggests a dc analysis of an amorphous silicon based Metal-Insulator-Semiconductor (MIS) structure for solar cells applications. Since it has been reported that biasing the cell was one of the techniques that improves conversion efficiency of MIS transistor-based solar cells, it tries to get accurate comprehension on the electrical optimization side of the structure to allow accurate su...

    In this paper, nano NiO thin films were prepared onto glass substrates by ultrasonic spraying material. A second harmonic Nd: YAG laser (532 nm, 25 mW) has been used for annealing this film. X-ray diffraction (XRD) results indicate that prepared films are polycrystalline structure with (111, 200) plane reflections, it was found that the prepared films have high transmittance in the visible region ...

    Curcumin, a non toxic yellow food additive, has been used here to sensitize TiO2 in photodegradation of methyl orange contaminant in water with solar light. Using natural dyes is a promising replacement for the hazardous heavy metal-based systems, such as CdS and Ru-compounds, in sensitizing wide band gap semiconductors. Naked (TiO2/Curcumin) and activated-carbon supported (A... View full abstract»
