Abstract

This thesis is about Photovoltaic (PV) cells and its stresses in various directions by calculating the power generated using solar cells under different conditions to improve its efficiency. Our research studies found that using multi-junction cells with larger substrates can increase [...]

Abstract

Stringent environmental constraints are usually associated with or applied to the siting and installation of new pipeline facilities. This has resulted in a significant portion of the design effort and ultimate cost of the facility to be dedicated to the mitigation of these environmental [...]

Abstract

Great concerns with flow assurance issues have been raised by the oil and gas industry, while the industry is increasingly moving to deepwater reservoirs. Gas hydrate blockages are one of the most common risks for the long distance offshore gas and oil production transport pipelines. [...]

Abstract

This paper describes and discusses techniques which can effectively diagnose dynamics problems in turbomachinery. A variety of elusive dynamics problems are identified which require definition, quantification, diagnosis, and monitoring. The state of the art in measurement and signal [...]

Abstract

This paper presents a feasibility study towards a control technique for a multi-phase machine with independent windings, so-called winding reconfiguration, for application in fully electric vehicles. The goal is to shift the point where field weakening is necessary and avert its dangers, [...]

Abstract

The narrow-gauge locomotive ‘Hydrogen Pioneer’, which was developed and constructed at the University of Birmingham, was employed to establish the performance of a hydrogen-hybrid railway traction vehicle. To achieve this several empirical tests were conducted. The locomotive [...]

Abstract

This paper presents a numerical approach based on the finite element method for the estimation of AC interference on buried metallic pipelines sharing the same right-of-way of power transmission lines in presence of mitigation wires. The proposed approach relies on a hybrid technique [...]

Abstract

This paper presents an approach for modelling the charging probability of electric vehicles as a Gaussian mixture model. The model is built up by assembling adapted multivari-ate normal probability density functions. This is done because the expectation maximization algorithm fails [...]

Abstract

In 2016 a new law for public contract was approved in Italy also aimed at improving the national and local sustainable transport planning. The Italian government has also adopted new 'Guidelines for assessment the Investment Projects' derived from the European Commission [...]
