Alternative Energy Systems and Applications by B. K. Hodge

By B. K. Hodge

The finished advisor to engineering replacement and renewable strength structures and applications—updated for the newest traits and technologies 

This booklet used to be designed tohelp engineers boost new recommendations for the present power financial system. as a consequence it offers technical discussions, in addition to a variety of real-world examples of just about all latest replacement power resources, functions, structures and procedure elements. All chapters concentrate on first-order engineering calculations, and examine replacement makes use of of current and renewable strength assets. simply as very important, the writer describes the way to follow those techniques to the advance of recent strength solutions. 

Since the e-book of the significantly acclaimed first variation of this booklet, the choice, renewable and sustainable strength industries have witnessed major evolution and progress. Hydraulic fracturing, fossil gasoline reserve raises, the expanding acclaim for hybrid and all-electric cars, and the lowering fee of solar energy have already got had an important effect on strength utilization styles around the globe. up-to-date and revised to mirror these and different key advancements, this re-creation beneficial properties extended assurance of issues lined within the first version, in addition to totally new chapters on hydraulic fracturing and fossil fuels, hybrid and all-electric automobiles, and more.

  • Begins with a desirable examine the altering face of worldwide strength economy
  • Features chapters dedicated to almost all resources of different strength and effort systems
  • Offers technical discussions of hydropower, wind, passive sun and solar-thermal, photovoltaics, gas cells, CHP platforms, geothermal, ocean strength, biomass, and nuclear
  • Contains up to date bankruptcy overview questions, homework difficulties, and a completely revised options handbook, to be had at the spouse website

While Alternative Energy structures and purposes, moment Edition is a perfect textbook/reference for complicated undergraduate and graduate point engineering classes in energy-related topics, it's also an quintessential specialist source for engineers and technicians operating in components relating to the advance of alternative/renewable strength systems.

Natural Gas Processing: Technology and Engineering Design

Typical gasoline is taken into account the dominant world wide bridge among fossil fuels of this present day and destiny assets of the next day. due to the hot shale growth in North the US, common gasoline is in a surplus and fast turning into a massive foreign commodity. remain present with traditional and now unconventional gasoline criteria and techniques with ordinary fuel Processing: expertise and Engineering layout.

Fouling in Refineries

Fouling in Refineries is a crucial and ongoing challenge that without delay impacts strength potency leading to elevated charges, construction losses, or even unit shutdown, requiring high priced costs to wash up gear and go back means to confident degrees. this article addresses this universal problem for the hydrocarbon processing group inside each one unit of the refinery.

Biohydrogen Production: Sustainability of Current Technology and Future Perspective

Bring up in eco-friendly, renewable and sustainable power call for because of better environmental affects (e. g. Greenhouse gases emissions, weather swap, and so on. ) on intake of fossil gas source positioned down an additional strain on executive, researchers and industrialists. between numerous to be had biofuel innovations, biohydrogen is taken into account as the best environmentally fresh gasoline and a powerful candidate to fulfil the longer term call for of sustainable strength source.

Lithosphere Dynamics and Sedimentary Basins of the Arabian Plate and Surrounding Areas (Frontiers in Earth Sciences)

This publication makes a speciality of the hyperlinks among deep earth (mantle) and shallow methods in areas of lively tectonics within the Arabian Plate and Surrounding components. It additionally presents key information for strength assets in those parts. The publication is a compilation of chosen papers from the activity strength of the overseas Lithosphere application (ILP).
