    In this article, the term "electric bicycle" is used to describe "electric-motor-powered bicycles," including both fully and partially motor-powered bicycles. Here, the electric bicycle market would benefit from further research both on the battery and on the drive technology and their use with electric bicycles. In the United States, electric bicycles are currently used most commonly for short tr... View full abstract»

    This article gives a survey of the commonly used methods for harmonic detection in active power filters (APFs). The work proposes a simulation setup that decouples the harmonic detection method from the active filter model and its controllers. In this way, the selected methods can be equally analyzed and compared with respect to their performance, which helps in anticipating possible implementatio... View full abstract»

    This article reviews the application of an adaptive var compensator (AVC) to reduce voltage flicker associated with the starting of large motors. The case considered here involves the sequential starting of two 2,000-hp motors in an across-the-line mode. The motors are served by a dedicated 44 kV- 4.16 kV substation. The source 44-kV transmission line also serves over 7,000 residential and commerc... View full abstract»

    Attempts to verify power losses deduced from simulation by direct measurement are highly respectable. It is the only means to become confident in models that limit simulation accuracy. Unfortunately, in the power electronics area, power measurements are often very difficult. Despite the fact that it is difficult to built, costly, and time consuming, calorimetric apparatus remains the only way to a... View full abstract»

  • Performing detailed power system studies for designing and analyzing electrical distribution systems - Power system studies for cement plants

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):56 - 65
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (903 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The power system studies for designing and analyzing the electrical distribution system for cement plants is detailed. The analysis consists of a short circuit, load flow, motor starting over-current coordination, and arc flash hazard study. There are several load flow solution algorithms used in industry such as Gauss-Seidel, Newton-Raphson, and current injection. It is good engineering practice ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1292 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper deals with the short-term and long-term energy storage methods for standby electric power systems. Stored energy is required in uninterruptible standby systems during the transition from utility power to engine-generator power. Various storage methods provide energy when the utility source fails. For batteries in cycling duty, Li-ion and Ni-MH cells are coming into wide use to displace ... View full abstract»
