The term "green power" is used to define power generated from renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, geothermal, hydropower and various forms of biomass. Green power marketing has the potential to expand domestic markets for renewable energy technologies by fostering greater availability of renewable electric service options in retail markets. Although renewable energy development has traditionally been limited by cost considerations, customer choice allows consumer preferences for cleaner energy sources to be reflected in market transactions. In survey after survey, customers have expressed a preference and willingness to pay more, if necessary, for cleaner energy sources.

The increase in capacity is being spread across two of TVA's three power purchase programs - Green Power Providers, Solar Solutions Initiative, and the Renewable Standard Offer. The Green Power Providers program has 10 MW of available capacity for the development of small-scale solar, wind, biomass and hydro generation systems that are 50 kilowatts (kW) or less. Within the Green Power Providers program TVA has doubled the residential capacity from 2 MW to 4 MW and will be paying all power providers a total of 14¢ per kilowatt-hour (kWh). The Solar Solutions Initiative program, which focuses on installations between 50 kW and 1 MW, has been expanded from 10 MW of capacity to 16 MW and now pays a premium of 6¢/kWh. TVA's third power purchase program, the Renewable Standard Offer continues to have 100 MW of available capacity for projects between 1 MW and 20 MW.

First DOE/EPRI Green Pricing Workshop First DOE/EPRI Green Pricing Workshop April 11-12, 1996 Golden, Colorado Prepared by Blair G. Swezey, National Renewable Energy Laboratory Terry M. Peterson, Electric Power Research Institute I. Overview Green pricing is an evolving utility service that responds to utility customers' preferences for electricity derived from renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, or biomass. Under green pricing, utilities offer customers a voluntary program or service to support electricity generated from renewable energy systems. Customers are asked to pay a rate premium, which is meant to cover the costs that the utility incurs above those paid today for electricity from conventional fuels. Utilities are considering green pricing as a way to build customer loyalty, deploy popular renewable technologies, expand business lines and expertise, and improve understanding of customer response to unbundled pricing and services.

HVDC power transmission technology assessment  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this study was to develop an assessment of the national utility system`s needs for electric transmission during the period 1995-2020 that could be met by future reduced-cost HVDC systems. The assessment was to include an economic evaluation of HVDC as a means for meeting those needs as well as a comparison with competing technologies such as ac transmission with and without Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) controllers. The role of force commutated dc converters was to be assumed where appropriate. The assessment begins by identifying the general needs for transmission in the U.S. in the context of a future deregulated power industry. The possible roles for direct current transmission are then postulated in terms of representative scenarios. A few of the scenarios are illustrated with the help of actual U.S. system examples. non-traditional applications as well as traditional applications such as long lines and asynchronous interconnections are discussed. The classical ``break-even distance`` concept for comparing HVDC and ac lines is used to assess the selected scenarios. The impact of reduced-cost converters is reflected in terms of the break-even distance. This report presents a comprehensive review of the functional benefits of HVDC transmission and updated cost data for both ac and dc system components. It also provides some provocative thoughts on how direct current transmission might be applied to better utilize and expand our nation`s increasingly stressed transmission assets.

Green Power Network: Community Choice Aggregation (CCA)  

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) Community choice aggregation (CCA) is a state policy that enables local governments to aggregate electricity demand within their jurisdictions in order to procure alternative energy supplies while maintaining the existing electricity provider for transmission and distribution services. Many states passed CCA laws as part of electric restructuring legislation in the late 1990s and early 2000s. States that have passed CCA laws include California (2002), Illinois (2009), Massachusetts (1997), New Jersey (2003), Ohio (1999), and Rhode Island (1997). There are many reasons that a community may choose to develop a CCA, including the option to purchase more green power, reduce electricity cost, and provide power from more local sources.

Consumer preferences for green power in Mexico  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Mexico has an abundant supply of renewable energy resources but little is known about the consumers' preferences for green power consumption. This paper investigates households' preferences for adoption of green power technologies in Central Mexico. Using a structured questionnaire, we presented a green power purchase scenario to elicit consumers' buying intention. We estimate the buying intention for specific adoption of water solar boilers as it is a critical equipment to deploy in the study region. We find some evidence that buying intention is largely influenced by the affordability of equipment, even if such equipment's energy is not green. Equipment availability, relative advantage, and perceived value of utilisation were found to influence buying intention positively. Our results shed light on buying consumers' intentions and the current green power options, and offer practical insight into Mexican household preferences on how to support further deployments of green power.

Voluntary Green Power Market Forecast through 2015  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Various factors influence the development of the voluntary 'green' power market--the market in which consumers purchase or produce power from non-polluting, renewable energy sources. These factors include climate policies, renewable portfolio standards (RPS), renewable energy prices, consumers' interest in purchasing green power, and utilities' interest in promoting existing programs and in offering new green options. This report presents estimates of voluntary market demand for green power through 2015 that were made using historical data and three scenarios: low-growth, high-growth, and negative-policy impacts. The resulting forecast projects the total voluntary demand for renewable energy in 2015 to range from 63 million MWh annually in the low case scenario to 157 million MWh annually in the high case scenario, representing an approximately 2.5-fold difference. The negative-policy impacts scenario reflects a market size of 24 million MWh. Several key uncertainties affect the results of this forecast, including uncertainties related to growth assumptions, the impacts that policy may have on the market, the price and competitiveness of renewable generation, and the level of interest that utilities have in offering and promoting green power products.

Comparing rig power transmission systems  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Installed power on drilling rigs has increased steadily since the inception of rotary drilling technology as a result of technical advances and the need to penetrate deeper horizons. Higher power levels for the pumps, rotary table and drawworks are also required for drilling deep wells within an economically reasonable period. Power initially available on a rig had been about 35 kW on average, whereas power values on modern rigs drilling ultra-deep wells are on the order of several thousand kW. The installed power values on modern drilling rigs, subdivided with respect to depth range, are shown. After safety, economic factors are of paramount importance to rig operators. Among these, which include low acquisition cost, long service life and ease of maintenance, a particularly decisive factor is high efficiency.

Green Power: Make Your Plug-in Vehicle Even Greener Green Power: Make Your Plug-in Vehicle Even Greener Your plug-in hybrid or all-electric vehicle can help reduce oil dependence. It can also reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) that lead to climate change if the electricity you use is produced by renewable energy. Even if most of the electricity in your area is generated by coal or other fossil fuels, you may be able to purchase green power for your vehicle. What Is Green Power? Green Power is electricity generated wholly or in part from renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, geothermal, hydropower, and various forms of biomass. The actual electricity delivered to your outlet may not be green, but your purchase of green power ensures that the power company generates that amount of power from renewable energy or purchases it from another provider

the the U.S. Market for Green Power Glenn Reed, XENERGY Inc. Ashley H. Houston, XENERGY Inc. ABSTRACT The advent of electric utility deregulation has created a market for green power; electricity generated in whole or in part from renewable resources. Green power satisfies both the environmental yearnings of its purchasers and the need of its sellers to differentiate their product offerings. While green power has captured a significant percentage of those residential and small commercial customers that have left their host utility, the percentage of all eligible customers in competitive markets that have chosen green power is still very small. This paper examines the development of competitive markets for green power in four states that have deregulated their electric utilities - California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. The attributes of each of these state markets

Wireless power transmission using ultrasonic guided waves  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The unavailability of suitable power supply at desired locations is currently an important obstacle in the development of distributed, wireless sensor networks for applications such as structural health monitoring of aircraft. Proposed solutions range from improved batteries to energy harvesting from vibration, temperature gradients and other sources. A novel approach is being investigated at Cardiff University School of Engineering in cooperation with Airbus. It aims to utilise ultrasonic guided Lamb waves to transmit energy through the aircraft skin. A vibration generator is to be placed in a location where electricity supply is readily available. Ultrasonic waves generated by this device will travel through the aircraft structure to a receiver in a remote wireless sensor node. The receiver will convert the mechanical vibration of the ultrasonic waves back to electricity, which will be used to power the sensor node. This paper describes the measurement and modelling of the interference pattern which emerges when Lamb waves are transmitted continuously as in this power transmission application. The discovered features of the pattern, such as a large signal amplitude variation and a relatively high frequency, are presented and their importance for the development of a power transmission system is discussed.

Wireless electricity (Power) transmission using solar based power satellite technology  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the near future due to extensive use of energy, limited supply of resources and the pollution in environment from present resources e.g. (wood, coal, fossil fuel) etc, alternative sources of energy and new ways to generate energy which are efficient, cost effective and produce minimum losses are of great concern. Wireless electricity (Power) transmission (WET) has become a focal point as research point of view and nowadays lies at top 10 future hot burning technologies that are under research these days. In this paper, we present the concept of transmitting power wirelessly to reduce transmission and distribution losses. The wired distribution losses are 70 75% efficient. We cannot imagine the world without electric power which is efficient, cost effective and produce minimum losses is of great concern. This paper tells us the benefits of using WET technology specially by using Solar based Power satellites (SBPS) and also focuses that how we make electric system cost effective, optimized and well organized. Moreover, attempts are made to highlight future issues so as to index some emerging solutions.

They do this by subsidizing any excess power produced and fed into the grid at a rate many times the cost of power generated from big conventional plants. ... The Ontario Power Authority is offering feed-in tariff contracts at between 45 and 80.2 cents to companies building new solar power generating facilities, 13.5 cents on land-based wind farms, 19 cents on off-shore wind farms, and between 10.4 and 19.5 cents on biogas projects. ... While there is no figure given for the feed-in tariff for solar/wind domestic generation, we could take an average between 80.2c (solar) and 13.5c (wind farm), that is, 46.85c, and see how long the power generated would have to be fed into the grid to recover $7450 at that rate. ...

Reinforcing Power Grid Transmission with FACTS Devices  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We explore optimization methods for planning the placement, sizing and operations of Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System (FACTS) devices installed into the grid to relieve congestion created by load growth or fluctuations of intermittent renewable generation. We limit our selection of FACTS devices to those that can be represented by modification of the inductance of the transmission lines. Our master optimization problem minimizes the $l_1$ norm of the FACTS-associated inductance correction subject to constraints enforcing that no line of the system exceeds its thermal limit. We develop off-line heuristics that reduce this non-convex optimization to a succession of Linear Programs (LP) where at each step the constraints are linearized analytically around the current operating point. The algorithm is accelerated further with a version of the cutting plane method greatly reducing the number of active constraints during the optimization, while checking feasibility of the non-active constraints post...

Technical and environmental aspects of electric power transmission  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This document summarizes the salient aspects of power systems and transmission-line technology and the effects of power-line construction and operation on human health and the environment. Major components of power systems are identified from the level of the individual consumer to that of the power pool, including the distribution, subtransmission, transmission, and power pool levels. This is followed by descriptions of the constituent parts and construction of power lines and the operational requirements and features of power lines and systems. Examples of topics include structure and conductor types, design, and selection; switching station and substation design and operation; and transmission line construction and upgrading. Emphasis is on the operational characteristics of transmission lines and of power systems and pools, including conductor and line parameters, insulation, faults, fault protection, electromagnetic field phenomena, corona phenomena, conductor motion, undesirable voltage levels, compensation, system protection, and system stability, reliability, and adequacy. Overhead dc lines, underground lines, and regulations and safety codes pertaining to power lines are briefly discussed. Environmental effects discussed include those stemming from route selection, clearing and construction, power-line operation, right-of-way maintenance, and the physical presence of structures. Examples of specific topics include visual and ecological criteria for route selection; right-of-way acquisition and land-use rights; effects of construction on soils, vegetation, and wildlife; impacts of right-of-way maintenance with herbicides or by cutting; types and use of herbicides; and power-line structure interference with TV reception and bird migration. Finally, the environmental impacts of the construction and operation of ac and dc underground lines are discussed.

HVDC power transmission electrode siting and design  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This research strives to shed light on the feasibility and practicality of using deep earth electrodes to permit their use for extended periods without adverse consequences. This report begins with a review of the fundamentals associated with current conduction in earth, including the various techniques available for measuring the earth`s electrical properties. The sources of existing data are discussed and some specific data for selected regions of the U.S. and Canada are reviewed as examples. Electrode technology and design issues are reviewed and recent experience gained by New England Power and Hydro-Quebec is discussed. The issues associated with direct current flowing in underground pipelines (and other facilities) are described and the present-day mitigation measures are evaluated. Suggestions are made for further R&D in the coordination of cathodic protection systems, an area that has evolved as an empirical, trial- and-error art more than a science.

Dynamic Power Flow Controller: Compact Dynamic Phase Angle Regulators for Transmission Power Routing  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

GENI Project: Varentec is developing compact, low-cost transmission power controllers with fractional power rating for controlling power flow on transmission networks. The technology will enhance grid operations through improved use of current assets and by dramatically reducing the number of transmission lines that have to be built to meet increasing contributions of renewable energy sources like wind and solar. The proposed transmission controllers would allow for the dynamic control of voltage and power flow, improving the grids ability to dispatch power in real time to the places where it is most needed. The controllers would work as fail-safe devices whereby the grid would be restored to its present operating state in the event of a controller malfunction instead of failing outright. The ability to affordably and dynamically control power flow with adequate fail-safe switchgear could open up new competitive energy markets which are not possible under the current regulatory structure and technology base.

The Green Lab: Power Consumption by Commercial Light Bulbs  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Going green is a slogan that is very contemporary both with industry and in the political arena. Choosing more energy-efficient devices is one way homeowners can go green. A simple method is to change home lighting from hot incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescent lights (CFLs). But do they really save energy? How do their illuminations compare? Even if the CFLs are more energy efficient they still add to our pollution problem because of the mercury inside them. Light-emitting diodes(LEDs) could be the answer but they are not available at our local stores. Can LEDs be made to screw right into a standard socket? How expensive are they? What are the power consumptions of so-called 60-W and 100-W CFL and LED light bulbs? These are the questions that are answered during this lab activity. Students measure the voltage and current for each of the three types of bulbs and then calculate the electrical power required by each. An optional experiment is to set the light outputs of each bulb so they are equal in intensity and then determine the power consumed. While not practical in the home this experiment gives students an understanding of value for their buck.

Green Power Marketing in the United States: A Status Report, Sixth Edition  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Voluntary consumer decisions to purchase electricity supplied from renewable energy sources represent a powerful market support mechanism for renewable energy development. Beginning in the early 1990s, a small number of U.S. utilities began offering''green power'' options to their customers. Since then, these products have become more prevalent both from utilities and in states that have introduced competition into their retail electricity markets. Today, nearly 50% of all U.S. consumers have an option to purchase some type of green power product from a retail electricity provider. Currently, more than 350 investor-owned utilities, rural electric cooperatives, and other publicly owned utilities in 33 states offer green power programs. This report provides an overview of green power marketing activity in the United States. It describes green power product offerings, consumer response, and recent industry trends. The three distinct markets for green power are discussed in turn.

Complex dynamics of blackouts in power transmission systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In order to study the complex global dynamics of a series of blackouts in power transmission systems a dynamical model of such a system has been developed. This model includes a simple representation of the dynamical evolution by incorporating the growth of power demand the engineering response to system failures and the upgrade of generator capacity. Two types of blackouts have been identified each having different dynamical properties. One type of blackout involves the loss of load due to transmission lines reaching their load limits but no line outages. The second type of blackout is associated with multiple line outages. The dominance of one type of blackout over the other depends on operational conditions and the proximity of the system to one of its two critical points. The model displays characteristics such as a probability distribution of blackout sizes with power tails similar to that observed in real blackout data from North America.

Implications of Carbon Regulation for Green Power Markets  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper examines the potential effects that emerging mandatory carbon markets have for voluntary markets for renewable energy, or green power markets. In an era of carbon regulation, green power markets will continue to play an important role because many consumers may be interested in supporting renewable energy development beyond what is supported through mandates or other types of policy support. The paper examines the extent to which GHG benefits motivate consumers to make voluntary renewable energy purchases and summarizes key issues emerging as a result of these overlapping markets, such as the implications of carbon regulation for renewable energy marketing claims, the demand for and price of renewable energy certificates (RECs), and the use of RECs in multiple markets (disaggregation of attributes). It describes carbon regulation programs under development in the Northeast and California, and how these might affect renewable energy markets in these regions, as well as the potential interaction between voluntary renewable energy markets and voluntary carbon markets, such as the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX). It also briefly summarizes the experience in the European Union, where carbon is already regulated. Finally, the paper presents policy options for policymakers and regulators to consider in designing carbon policies to enable carbon markets and voluntary renewable energy markets to work together.

Cryogenic System for a High Temperature Superconducting Power Transmission Cable  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

High-temperature superconducting (HTS) cable systems for power transmission are under development that will use pressurized liquid nitrogen to provide cooling of the cable and termination hardware. Southwire Company and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have been operating a prototype HTS cable system that contains many of the typical components needed for a commercial power transmission application. It is being used to conduct research in the development of components and systems for eventual commercial deployment. The cryogenic system was built by Air Products and Chemicals, Allentown, Pennsylvania, and can circulate up to 0.35 kg/s of liquid nitrogen at temperatures as low as 67 K at pressures of 1 to 10 bars. Sufficient cooling is provided for testing a 5-m-long HTS transmission cable system that includes the terminations required for room temperature electrical connections. Testing of the 5-m HTS transmission cable has been conducted at the design ac conditions of 1250 A and 7.5 kV line to ground. This paper contains a description of the essential features of the HTS cable cryogenic system and performance results obtained during operation of the system. The salient features of the operation that are important in large commercial HTS cable applications will be discussed.

Power Flow Controller for Renewables: Transformer-less Unified Power Flow Controller for Wind and Solar Power Transmission  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

GENI Project: MSU is developing a power flow controller to improve the routing of electricity from renewable sources through existing power lines. The fast, innovative, and lightweight circuitry that MSU is incorporating into its controller will eliminate the need for a separate heavy and expensive transformer, as well as the construction of new transmission lines. MSUs controller is better suited to control power flows from distributed and intermittent wind and solar power systems than traditional transformer-based controllers are, so it will help to integrate more renewable energy into the grid. MSUs power flow controller can be installed anywhere in the existing grid to optimize energy transmission and help reduce transmission congestion.

Utility-Marketing Partnerships: An Effective Strategy for Marketing Green Power?  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper explores whether partnerships between utilities and independent marketers are an effective strategy for marketing green power. We present case studies of voluntary and mandatory partnerships covering green power program design and implementation in both regulated and restructured electricity markets. We also include perspectives (based on interviews) from utilities, marketers, and regulators involved in developing and implementing these partnerships. From these case studies and interviews, we describe lessons learned about developing effective partnerships, including such issues as respective roles in marketing and administration, product branding, and contract and incentive structures. Based on experience to date, strategic partnerships between utilities and marketers can be an effective approach to marketing green power. Partnerships leverage the sales and resource procurement experience of marketers and the utility?s reputation and access to customers. Further, partnerships can create greater incentives for success because marketers have a vested financial interest in maximizing customer participation and green power sales.

Frequency selection of an inductive contactless power transmission system for ocean observing  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Inductive Contactless Power Transmission (ICPT) may suffer considerable power loss due to eddy currents in seawater when applied undersea rather than on land. The loss of power, which is harmful to transmission efficiency, is closely related to the transmission frequency. However, the relationship between the transmission frequency and the efficiency has rarely been studied. In this paper, we analytically deduce the power transmission efficiency in air and the power loss of ICPT in seawater. Based on the theoretical calculation and analysis, guidelines are provided to select the optimum frequency to maximise the efficiency. A case study is then performed to numerically determine the optimum frequency for an undersea ICPT system. Laboratory experiments are conducted to confirm the theoretical results. A prototype ICPT system power is designed and built. A lake trial demonstrates that the designed system is able to transmit power contactless to actual undersea observation network equipment underwater with an efficiency of approximately 85% and a 5mm gap distance.

On-site Renewable Energy Systems On-site Renewable Energy Systems For consumers or organizations wishing to install on-site renewable energy systems, there are a variety of options available, including electricity generating systems and thermal systems that can displace electricity or fossil fuel use. Solar photovoltaics convert sunlight directly into electricity. Solar hot water systems use the sun's energy to heat water. Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in wind into mechanical power that runs a generator to produce electricity. Geothermal heat pumps use the constant temperature of the upper 10 feet of the Earth to heat and cool buildings. Fuel cells produce electricity from hydrogen and oxygen and can be powered by a number of sources, including renewables. Biomass power systems use biomass feedstocks such as wood waste or methane from animal waste or other sources to generate electricity. Biomass resources can also be used in direct heat and combined heat and power applications.

A review on promoting share of renewable energy by green-trading mechanisms in power system  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In order to promote the development of renewable energy power generation, many countries have issued corresponding policies. Meanwhile, some green-trading mechanisms have been implemented in power industry. And this paper has mainly presented a review on promoting share of renewable energy by green-trading mechanisms in power system with a focus on promotion effects of three mechanisms: feed-in tariff, renewable portfolio standard and emission trading scheme. Apart from a review, summaries, comparisons, and an outlook for future study are also presented. Our review suggests that feed-in tariff and renewable portfolio standard can effectively increase the share of renewable energy power and lead to renewable resource diversity. In addition, emission trading also provides stimulus for development of renewable energy besides mitigation of carbon emission.

Critical points and transitions in an electric power transmission model for cascading failure blackouts  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Cascading failures in large-scale electric power transmission systems are an important cause of blackouts. Analysis of North American blackout data has revealed power law (algebraic) tails in the blackout size probability distribution which suggests a dynamical origin. With this observation as motivation we examine cascading failure in a simplified transmission system model as load power demand is increased. The model represents generators loads the transmission line network and the operating limits on these components. Two types of critical points are identified and are characterized by transmission line flow limits and generator capability limits respectively. Results are obtained for tree networks of a regular form and a more realistic 118-node network. It is found that operation near critical points can produce power law tails in the blackout size probability distribution similar to those observed. The complex nature of the solution space due to the interaction of the two critical points is examined.

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

On-site Renewable Energy Third-Party Solar Financing Third-Party Solar Financing Third-Party Ownership of Distributed Solar Power Systems Historically, the up-front cost of solar has discouraged many residential and commercial customers who may otherwise wish to generate their electricity with solar power. The provision of this initial investment through traditional financing arrangements can often lead to prohibitively high interest rates on loans for a solar system rendering the economics of the investment unfavorable. In the late 2000s, solar installers and developers began to develop the concept of providing solar electricity to a customer - or, the service of generating electricity from solar panels - without requiring that the customer own a solar electric system.

Reliability modeling and evaluation of HVDC power transmission systems  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The objective of this paper is to present an improved computational method for evaluating the reliability indices of HVdc transmission systems. The developed models and computational techniques are described. These can be used to simulate the operational practices and characteristics of a system under study efficiently and realistically. This method is based on the failure modes and effects analysis and uses the event tree method and the minimal cut set approach to represent the system's operational behavior and deduce the appropriate system's failure modes. A set of five reliability indices is evaluated for each output node being analyzed together with the probability and frequency of encountering particular regions of system performance levels. The analysis of an assumed HVdc bipolar transmission system is also included.

Bioelectricity generation and microcystins removal in a blue-green algae powered microbial fuel cell  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Bioelectricity production from blue-green algae was examined in a single chamber tubular microbial fuel cell (MFC). The blue-green algae powered MFC produced a maximum power density of 114mW/m2 at a current density of 0.55mA/m2. Coupled with the bioenergy generation, high removal efficiencies of chemical oxygen demand (COD) and nitrogen were also achieved in MFCs. Over 78.9% of total chemical oxygen demand (TCOD), 80.0% of soluble chemical oxygen demand (SCOD), 91.0% of total nitrogen (total-N) and 96.8% ammoniumnitrogen (NH3N) were removed under closed circuit conditions in 12 days, which were much more effective than those under open circuit and anaerobic reactor conditions. Most importantly, the MFC showed great ability to remove microcystins released from blue-green algae. Over 90.7% of MC-RR and 91.1% of MC-LR were removed under closed circuit conditions (500?). This study showed that the MFC could provide a potential means for electricity production from blue-green algae coupling algae toxins removal.

Transmission Benefits of Co-Locating Concentrating Solar Power and Wind  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In some areas of the U.S. transmission constraints are a limiting factor in deploying new wind and concentrating solar power (CSP) plants. Texas is an example of one such location, where the best wind and solar resources are in the western part of the state, while major demand centers are in the east. The low capacity factor of wind is a compounding factor, increasing the relative cost of new transmission per unit of energy actually delivered. A possible method of increasing the utilization of new transmission is to co-locate both wind and concentrating solar power with thermal energy storage. In this work we examine the benefits and limits of using the dispatachability of thermal storage to increase the capacity factor of new transmission developed to access high quality solar and wind resources in remote locations.

Wallula Power Project and Wallula - McNary Transmission Line Project Final Environmental Impact Statement  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Wallula Generation, LLC proposes to construct a 1,300-megawatt (MW) natural gas-fired combined-cycle combustion gas turbine facility (the Wallula Power Project). The project would be located in the northwestern portion of Walla Walla County, Washington, approximately 8 miles south of the City of Pasco, 2 miles north of the unincorporated community of Wallula, and 7 miles southeast of the unincorporated community of Burbank. The purpose of the proposed power project is to provide energy to meet the needs of the Northwest and other interconnected electric transmission areas where electrical energy is needed. Firm transmission of the power generated by the Wallula Power Project would require construction of a new 500-kilovolt (kV) transmission line and construction of a new switchyard near Smiths Harbor. Approximately 5.1 miles of new transmission line from the proposed generation plant to the new switchyard would be completed. An additional 28 miles of new transmission line from the Smiths Harbor Switchyard to the McNary Substation would be constructed adjacent to the existing Lower Monumental-McNary transmission line and upgrades completed to the existing McNary Substation if loads are exceeded on the existing line. Wallula Generation, LLC, would construct and operate the generation plant and associated facilities, including the makeup water supply line. Bonneville would design, construct, and operate the two 500 kV transmission line segments and switchyard. To supply natural gas to the plant site, a 5.9-mile pipeline interconnection would be engineered, constructed, owned, and operated by PG&E Gas Transmission-Northwest (GTN). This EIS evaluates the environmental impacts of the proposed action, which includes the proposed power plant and 33-mile transmission line. It also evaluates an alternative using taller towers and longer spans between towers along part of the transmission line, and the use of an alternative approach for the transmission line where it would enter the McNary Substation. The No Action Alternative is also addressed.

The Reliability Investigation on ACSR Splice Connector Systems Used in Overhead Power transmission Lines  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Due to material discontinuity and inherited forming mechanism from a crimped-type splice connector, the associated conductor-connector system is highly sensitive to system components aging, especially during high-temperature operations. Furthermore, due to the increase in power demand and limited investment in new infrastructure, existing overhead power transmission lines often need to operate at temperatures higher than the original designed values. This has led to the accelerated aging and degradation of conductor-connector systems. The implications of connector aging are two-fold: (1) significant increase in resistivity of the splice connector and (2) significant reduction in the connector clamping strength. Therefore, splice connectors are one of the weakest links in the electric power transmission infrastructure. In this paper we will discuss the reliability of splice connector systems, including both single stage and two stage splice connectors, used in ACSR conductor of transmission lines under high temperature operations.

Toward space solar power: Wireless energy transmission experiments past, present and future  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Solar power is a reality. Today increasing numbers of photovoltaic and other solar-powered installations are in service around the world and in space. These uses range from the primary electric power source for satellites remote site scientific experiments and villages in developing countries to augmenting the commercial electric grid and providing partial power for individual businesses and homeowners in developed countries. In space electricity generated by photovoltaic conversion of solar energy is the mainstay of power for low Earth and geostationary satellite constellations. Still for all its acceptance as a benign and environmentally friendly energy source terrestrial solar power has yet to be seriously considered a viable technology for providing base electrical generating capacity. The obvious reason is sunshine on Earth is too unreliable. In addition to the diurnal and seasonal cycles inclement weather reduces the average daily period and intensity of insolation. However the Sun shines constantly in space. The challenge is to harvest and transmit the energy from space to Earth. The concept of space solar power based on microwave wireless energy transmission was first put forth more than 25 years ago by Dr. Peter Glaser. We review historical experiments in wireless energy transmission which have brought the technology from a laboratory curiosity to its present status. Results from recent experiments and their implications for wireless energy transmission as an enabling technology for space solar power are reviewed. Current developments are discussed along with proposed terrestrial and space experiments.

Control system and method for a power delivery system having a continuously variable ratio transmission  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A control system and method for a power delivery system, such as in an automotive vehicle, having an engine coupled to a continuously variable ratio transmission (CVT). Totally independent control of engine and transmission enable the engine to precisely follow a desired operating characteristic, such as the ideal operating line for minimum fuel consumption. CVT ratio is controlled as a function of commanded power or torque and measured load, while engine fuel requirements (e.g., throttle position) are strictly a function of measured engine speed. Fuel requirements are therefore precisely adjusted in accordance with the ideal characteristic for any load placed on the engine.

Dark green electricity comes from the sea: Capitalizing on ecological merits of offshore wind power?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract European consumers are willing to pay more for green electricity, as they highly value renewable energy sources for the contribution to combating climate change. There is a push for getting higher levels of sustainability, leading to a differentiation of Europes electricity market. In this differentiation, the large potential of wind energy is recognized. More specifically, North Sea countries prefer to plan wind arrays (far) out at sea. This article offers a review of the main arguments for offshore wind energy, described in comparison with its onshore counterpart. It is stated that offshore wind farms (OWFs) generate dark green electricity as they mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to the protection of (some) marine life. Applying an informational governance framework, this article further assesses whether this dark green message has been exploited through further differentiation of the electricity market, and provides an analysis of why this is not (yet) the case. It is concluded that the dominant discourse in onshore wind power development hinders a favorable ecological differentiation toward offshore wind power.

Review of transmission schemes and case studies for renewable power integration into the remote grid  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Investment in transmission for renewable power penetration to the remote grid essentially faces a set of inherent, regulatory, economic and technical challenges. This work investigates these challenges to enhance renewable power integration into the remote grid. This study aims to enhance regulatory policies and associated planning frameworks to be more efficient and justifiable for renewable power integration paradigm. First, a set of leading transmission schemes practiced, or investigated, in different countries are evaluated against the challenges which are obvious for long distance renewable power transmission. Second, a net benefit framework is presented to address the challenging issues of location constrained renewable power penetration into the Queensland network of the Australian grid. The proposed framework incorporates the carbon emission price as an environmental benefit which significantly influences the costbenefit analysis. This paper discusses the hub approach of network integration. The transmission investment cost allocation is addressed here as well. The concepts are verified through the implementation of the proposed framework in four prospective projects of the Queensland network in the Australian national electricity market (NEM).

BPA/Puget Power Northwest Washington Transmission Project : Summary of the Supplemental Draft Environmental Statement.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

BPA and Puget Sound Power and Light (Puget Power) are proposing to upgrade the existing electric transmission power system in the Whatcom and Skagit County area of northwest Washington to increase the capacity of the US-Canada Intertie transmission system. The project would satisfy the need to provide more ability to store and return energy with Canada, would provide additional capacity on the Intertie for anticipated increases in power transactions, and would increase flexibility in operation of the US and Canadian hydroelectric system. It would protect Puget Power`s local system against thermal overloads, and improve local reliability. In November 1993, Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), and Whatcom County (Washington) published a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) for the proposed Northwest Washington Transmission Project. In order to present some shifts in need for the project and to permit additional review, BPA and Whatcom County have elected to issue a Supplemental Draft EIS. This Summary presents background material, explains project needs and purposes, and then focuses on alternatives and the possible effects.

Thermoelectric Power Generation as an Alternative Green Technology of Energy Harvesting  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The vast majority of heat that is generated from computer processor chips to car engines to electric power plants, the need to use of excess heat creates a major source of inefficiency. Energy harvesters are thermoelectric materials which are solid-state energy converters used to convert waste heat into electricity. Significant improvements to the thermoelectric materials measured by figure of merit (ZT).forconverting waste-heat energy directly into electrical power, application of this alternative green technology can be made and also it will improve the overall efficiencies of energy conversion systems. In this paper, the basic concepts of thermoelectric material and its power generation is presented and recent patents of thermoelectric material are reviewed and discussed.

AC Loss of Ripple Current in Superconducting DC Power Transmission Cable  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract As a method of largely reducing the transmission loss in the electric power grid, superconducting direct current (DC) power transmission cable has been investigated. Using superconducting DC power transmission cables, large amounts of current and energy can be transferred compared to conventional copper cables. In this case, an alternating current (AC) is converted to DC and superposed AC which is known as ripple current, and the energy loss by the ripple current is generated. Therefore it is desired to estimate the energy loss density for the case of DC current and superposed AC current for a design of DC transmission cable system. In this study, the hysteresis loss for DC current of 2 kA rectified from 60Hz alternating current is calculated using the Bean model, and coupling loss was also estimated. The diameter of the cable was 40mm. The ripple currents generated by multi-pulse rectifiers, 6-pulse, 12-pulse, and 24-pulse were considered. It is found that the total AC loss including the hysteresis loss and the coupling loss is considerably smaller than the supposed heat loss of 0.5W/m which is obtained with a newly developed cable.

Magnetohydrodynamic electromagnetic pulse (MHD-EMP) interaction with power transmission and distribution systems  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report discusses the effects of the late-time high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) on electrical transmission and distribution (T&D) systems. This environment, known as the magnetohydrodynamic electromagnetic pulse (MHD-EMP), is a very slowly varying electric field induced in the earth`s surface, similar to the field induced by a geomagnetic storm. It can result in the flow of a quasi-dc current in grounded power lines and in the subsequent magnetic saturation of transformers. This saturation, in turn, causes 6-Hz harmonic distortion and an increase in the reactive power required by generation facilities. This report analyzes and discusses these phenomena. The MHD-EMP environment is briefly discussed, and a simplified form of the earth-induced electric field is developed for use in a parametric study of transmission line responses. Various field coupling models are described, and calculated results for the responses of both transmission- and distribution-class power lines are presented. These calculated responses are compared with measurements of transformer operation under dc excitation to infer the MHD-EMP response of these power system components. It is found that the MHD-EMP environment would have a marked effect on a power system by inducing up to several hundreds of amperes of quasi-dc current on power lines. These currents will cause transformers to saturate which could result in excessive harmonic generation, voltage swings, and voltage suppression. The design of critical facilities which are required to operate during and after MHD-EMP events will have to be modified in order to mitigate the effects of these abnormal power system conditions.

The spatial dependence of the power transmission factor, d, associated with an ion-electron pair passing through the sheath at the DIII-D divertor plate has been determined by sweeping the edge plasma across Langmuir probe detectors. Our results show that d decreases from the classically expected value of eight near the low density edge of the scrape-off-layer plasma to values less than unity at the peak of the profile. 13 refs., 16 figs.

Final environmental impact statement, Washington Water Power/B.C. Hydro Transmission Interconnection Project  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Washington Water Power (WWP) proposes to construct and operate an electric transmission line that would connect with the electrical system of the British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority (B.C. Hydro). The project would be composed of a double-circuit, 230-kilovolt (kV) transmission line from WWP`s existing Beacon Substation located northeast of Spokane, Washington to the international border located northwest of Metaline Falls, Washington. The original Presidential permit application and associated proposed route presented in the draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) have been modified to terminate at the Beacon Substation, instead of WWP`s initially proposed termination point at the planned Marshall Substation located southwest of Spokane. A supplemental draft EIS was prepared and submitted for review to not only examine the new proposed 5.6 miles of route, but to also compare the new Proposed Route to the other alternatives previously analyzed in the DEIS. This final EIS (FEIS) assesses the environmental effects of the proposed transmission line through construction, operation, maintenance, and abandonment activities and addresses the impacts associated with the Proposed Action, Eastern Alternative, Western Alternative, Northern Crossover Alternative, Southern Crossover Alternative, and No Action Alternative. The FEIS also contains the comments received and the responses to these comments submitted on the DEIS and Supplemental DEIS.

Tucson Electric Power Company Sahuarita-Nogales Transmission Line Draft Environmental Impact Statement  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Tucson Electric Power Company (TEP) has applied to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for a Presidential Permit to construct and operate a double-circuit, 345,000-volt (345-kV) electric transmission line across the United States border with Mexico. Under Executive Order (EO) 10485 of September 3, 1953, as amended by EO 12038 of February 3, 1978, a Presidential Permit is required to construct, connect, operate, or maintain facilities at the U.S. international border for the transmission of electric energy between the United States and a foreign country. DOE has determined that the issuance of a Presidential Permit to TEP for the proposed project would constitute a major Federal action that may have a significant impact on the environment within the meaning of the ''National Environmental Policy Act of 1969'' (NEPA) 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) {section}4321 et seq. For this reason, DOE has prepared this Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate potential environmental impacts from the proposed Federal action (granting a Presidential Permit for the proposed transmission facilities) and reasonable alternatives, including the No Action Alternative. This EIS was prepared in accordance with Section 102(2)(c) of NEPA, Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 1500-1508), and DOE NEPA Implementing Procedures (10 CFR 1021). DOE is the lead Federal Agency, as defined by 40 CFR 1501.5. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service (USFS), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) of the U.S. Department of the Interior, and the U.S. Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission, U.S. and Mexico (USIBWC), are cooperating agencies. Each of these organizations will use the EIS for its own NEPA purposes, as described in the Federal Agencies' Purpose and Need and Authorizing Actions section of this summary. The 345-kV double-circuit transmission line would consist of twelve transmission line wires, or conductors, and two neutral ground wires that would provide both lightning protection and fiber optic communications, on a single set of support structures. The transmission line would originate at TEP's existing South Substation (which TEP would expand), in the vicinity of Sahuarita, Arizona, and interconnect with the Citizens Communications (Citizens) system at a Gateway Substation that TEP would construct west of Nogales, Arizona. The double-circuit transmission line would continue from the Gateway Substation south to cross the U.S.-Mexico border and extend approximately 60 miles (mi) (98 kilometers [km]) into the Sonoran region of Mexico, connecting with the Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE, the national electric utility of Mexico) at CFE's Santa Ana Substation.

BPA/Puget Power Northwest Washington Transmission Project Final Environmental Impact Statement.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) and Puget Sound Power & Light Company (Puget Power) propose to upgrade the existing high-voltage transmission system in the Whatcom and Skagit counties area between the towns of Custer and Sedro Woolley, including some areas within the City of Bellingham, starting in 1995. A Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the project was issued in November 1993, followed by a 45-day public comment period. Public response to the DEIS included the identification of several new transmission route alternatives in the Lake Whatcom area. BPA issued a Supplemental DEIS in April 1995 to provide a second public review-and-comment period. Rebuilding an existing 230-kV line to a double-circuit 230-kV transmission line was identified in the Supplemental DEIS as the Proposed Action. The Supplemental DEIS also examined in detail a North Shore Road alternative which was proposed by some members of the public. Public comments on the EIS were listed and responded to in the Supplemental DEIS. In May 1995, a second set of open houses and public meetings was held to review the Supplemental DEIS. Electromagnetic field (EMF) effects raised as an issue in the DEIS continued to be an issue of public concern in the meetings. The EIS has identified impacts that would generally be classified as low to moderate and localized. Effects on soils and water resources in sensitive areas (e.g., near Lake Whatcom) would be low to moderate; there would be little change in magnetic fields; noise levels would remain at existing levels; and land use and property value impacts would be minimal. Threatened and endangered species would not be adversely affected, and all proposed actions in wetlands would be covered by a Corps of Engineers Nationwide Permit. Visual and socioeconomic would be low to moderate. There would be no effect on cultural resources.

Effects of neutral gas collisions on the power transmission factor at the divertor sheath  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We show that charge-exchange and other ion-neutral collisions can reduce the power transmission factor of the plasma sheath, thereby lowering the ion impact energy and target plate sputtering. The power transmission factor relates the heat flux reaching the divertor target to the of the surface: {Delta}= Q{sub surf}/n{sub e}T{sub e}C{sub s}. Experimental data from the DIII-D tokamak suggest that {Delta} could be as low as 2-3 near the region of peak divertor particle flux, instead of the 7-8 expected from usual sheath theory. Several effects combine to allow ion-neutral interactions to be important in the divertor plasma sheath. The shallow angle of incidence of the magnetic field (1--3{degree} in DIII-D) leads to the spatial extension of the sheath from approximately {pi}i {approx} 1 mm normal to the plate to several centimeters along the field lines. Ionization reduces the sheath potential, and collisions reduce the ion impact energy.

Wholesale Power and Transmission Rate Projections 1993--2014 and Historical Wholesale Power Rates 1939--1992.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This document provides a range of high, medium, and low case long-term projections of Bonneville Power Administration`s (BPA) wholesale power rates and a medium case long-term projection of BPA`s wheeling rates. These projections are produced annually by BPA. BPA uses these projections in long-term marketing, resource, transmission, and financial planning assessments. BPA`s projections also are used by public utility commissions, utilities, and others for a variety of planning purposes. The analysis used for these rate projections assumes that current rate making methodologies continue into the future and are further based on certain assumptions about regional loads, extra-regional markets, the costs of resources, BPA`s financial requirements, and the capability of the region`s power plants. While these projections are intended to address the overall uncertainty in rate levels, BPA realizes that the future will not reflect any specific set of assumptions. The rate projections in this document have been prepared prior to the Draft 1993 BPA Marketing Plan, the implementation of which is almost certain to push BPA away from any set of assumptions in this document. Therefore, this document can be thought of as representing the ``old`` BPA with its products and policies. It can be viewed as a starting point or reference point to measure the impact of the ``new`` BPA with its Marketing Plan, and the broader undertaking referred to as the Competitiveness Project.

An ultrasound technique for wireless power transmission through tissue to implanted medical devices  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

An ultrasound electrical recharging system (USERTM) is developed and tested which wirelessly transmits significant amount of energy through animal tissue to charge implantable devices batteries or capacitors. The goal of this approach is wireless power transmission to active human implant devices. Experiments with transducers with resonant frequencies between 0.5 and 3.5 MHz led us to adopt 0.75 to 1.25 MHz as the range of optimum efficiency. In vitro experiments demonstrated significant charging of 4.1 V medically qualified Li-ion batteries across tissue depths of up to 5 cm. Charging currents close to 300 mA were achieved in vitro. Several in vivo tests confirmed the power delivery in a porcine model. In an in vivo survival test tissue was exposed to 1 MHz ultrasound at an average intensity of 0.4 W/cm2 for 11.5 h. Histology of the exposed tissue showed tissue changes primarily attributable only to surgical implantation of the prototype device. Many traditional and developing implanted medical devices are targets for the introduction of this method of power delivery to reduce the number of battery replacement operations and improve performance compared to the existing electromagnetic method of wireless power delivery.

Gravitational Contributions to Gauge Green's Functions and Asymptotic Free Power-Law Running of Gauge Coupling  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We perform an explicit one-loop calculation for the gravitational contributions to the two-, three- and four-point gauge Green's functions with paying attention to the quadratic divergences. It is shown for the first time in the diagrammatic calculation that the Slavnov-Taylor identities are preserved even if the quantum graviton effects are included at one-loop level, such a conclusion is independent of the choice of regularization schemes. We also present a regularization scheme independent calculation based on the gauge condition independent background field framework of Vilkovisky-DeWitt's effective action with focusing on both the quadratic divergence and quartic divergence that is not discussed before. With the harmonic gauge condition, the results computed by using the traditional background field method can consistently be recovered from the Vilkovisky-DeWitt's effective action approach by simply taking a limiting case, and are found to be the same as the ones yielded by the diagrammatic calculation. As a consequence, in all the calculations, the symmetry-preserving and divergent-behavior-preserving loop regularization method can consistently lead to a nontrivial gravitational contribution to the gauge coupling constant with an asymptotic free power-law running at one loop near the Planck scale.

Data Collection for the Bonneville Power Administration Project on Wind Loading of Transmission Conductors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ABSTRACT The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) project, Wind Effects on Conductors for Span Factors was established to determine the relationship between actual and theoretical wind loads on overhead transmission conductors. This study aims to improve BPA transmission line design methods and criteria as they relate to wind conditions in the Pacific Northwest. For the past seven years, BPA has collected data from seven sites in the Pacific Northwest. Measurements of wind speeds and directions, ambient temperatures and barometric pressures, and conductor swing angles enable engineers to compare measured wind loads on conductors to theoretical values. Impact of such variables as height of conductor, span lengths and conductor diameter are also investigated. Three sites were instrumented with vertically arranged anemometers to measure wind speed as a function of height above ground. This paper covers site determination, instrumentation, data collection, and some site maintenance and operation challenges. The maintenance and manipulation of the very large data base that has been collected is discussed. As data analysis is not yet finished, final results are not included.

Overhead electric power transmission line jumpering system for bundles of five or more subconductors  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Jumpering of electric power transmission lines at a dead end tower. Two transmission line conductor bundles each contain five or more spaced apart subconductors (5) arranged in the shape of a cylinder having a circular cross section. The ends of each bundle of subconductors are attached with insulators to a dead end tower (1). Jumpering allows the electric current to flow between the two bundles of subconductors using jumper buses, internal jumper conductors, and external jumper conductors. One or more current collecting jumper buses (37) are located inside each bundle of subconductors with each jumper bus being attached to the end of a subconductor. Small-diameter internal jumper conductors (33) are located in the inherently electrically shielded area inside each bundle of subconductors with each subconductor (except ones having an attached jumper bus) having one internal jumper conductor connected between that subconductor's end and a jumper bus. Large-diameter external jumper conductors (9) are located outside each bundle of subconductors with one or more external jumper conductors being connected between the jumper buses in one bundle of subconductors and the jumper buses in the other bundle.

Treatment of biodiversity issues in impact assessment of electricity power transmission lines: A Finnish case review  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process concerning the route of a 400 kV power transmission line between Loviisa and Hiki in southern Finland was reviewed in order to assess how biodiversity issues are treated and to provide suggestions on how to improve the effectiveness of treatment of biodiversity issues in impact assessment of linear development projects. The review covered the whole assessment process, including interviews of stakeholders, participation in the interest group meetings and review of all documents from the project. The baseline studies and assessment of direct impacts in the case study were detailed but the documentation, both the assessment programme and the assessment report, only gave a partial picture of the assessment process. All existing information, baseline survey and assessment methods should be addressed in the scoping phase in order to promote interaction between all stakeholders. In contrast to the assessment of the direct effects, which first emphasized impacts on the nationally important and protected flying squirrel but later expanded to deal with the assessment of impacts on ecologically important sites, the indirect and cumulative impacts of the power line were poorly addressed. The public was given the opportunity to become involved in the EIA process. However, they were more concerned with impacts on their properties and less so on biodiversity and species protection issues. This suggests that the public needs to become more informed about locally important features of biodiversity.

Calculation of transmission system losses for the Taiwan Power Company by the artificial neural network with time decayed weight  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

For energy conservation and improvement of power system operation efficiency, how to reduce the transmission system losses becomes an important topic of grave concern. To understand the cause, and to evaluate the amount, of the losses are the prior steps to diminish them. To simplify the evaluation procedure without losing too much accuracy, this paper adopts the artificial neural network, which is a model free network, to analyze the transmission system losses. As the artificial neural network with time decayed weight has the capability of learning, memorizing, and forgetting, it is more suitable for a power system with gradually changing characteristics. By using this artificial neural network, the estimation of transmission system losses will be more precise. In this paper, comparison will be made between the results of artificial neural network analysis and polynomial loss equations analysis.

High-power microwave transmission systems for electron-cyclotron-resonance plasma heating  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This progress report is for the sixth year of a grant from the US Department of Energy for the design, development, and fabrication of ECRH transmission and mode conversion systems to transport microwave power from a gyrotron to a magnetically confined plasma. The design and low-power testing of new and improved components for such systems and development of underlying theory is the focus of this project. Devising and improving component testing and diagnostic techniques is also an important part of this effort. The development of possible designs for sections of gyrotrons themselves, such as tapers or Vlasov-type launchers, in support of the Varian gyrotron development program is also considered when appropriate. We also provide support to other groups working on ECR heating of magnetically confined plasmas such as the groups at General Atomics, the University of Texas at Austin, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. During the last year, we designed and had fabricated a two-dimensional Vlasov antenna system for a 110 GHz TE{sub 15,2} mode gyrotron for possible use at General Atomics. The system included the launcher section, a visor, main reflector, and focusing reflector. Programs to generate the tool-path profiles to cut the General Atomics'' Vlasov components on a milling machine were developed. We have also developed state-of-the art theory and programs for three-dimensional whispering-gallery-mode Vlasov antenna systems. A design for a 110 GHz TE{sub 01}-TE{sub 15,2} mode converter system for cold testing WGM Vlasov antenna systems was developed and is currently being fabricated also.

AC loss characteristics of superconducting power transmission cables: gap effect and  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Four groups of superconducting power transmission cables composed of coated conductors with 4.0mm width and 2m superconductor thickness have been designed, including mono-layer, two-layer, four-layer and six-layer cables. In each group, three types of cables have been constructed with gaps of different size between adjacent coated conductors, which are classified into small gap, medium gap and large gap. Moreover, different lateral critical current density (Jc) distributions, specifically a uniform distribution and a trapezoidal distribution with a sloping shoulder, have been assumed while calculating the AC losses of these cables numerically by using a one-dimensional FEM model. Numerical results show that AC losses in mono-layer cables are significantly influenced by gaps between coated conductors as well as lateral Jc distribution, while cables with many layers are hardly affected by them. This proves that small gaps between coated conductors are not absolutely essential to reduce AC losses in multi-layer cables, and a sloping shoulder of the Jc distribution is more allowable in multi-layer cables than in mono-layer cables. The AC loss distributions among layers in six-layer cables are presented and the reasons for different influences of the gap as well as the lateral Jc distribution in mono-layer and multi-layer cables are discussed.

Analysis of dc harmonics using the three-pulse model for the intermountain power project HVDC transmission  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The harmonic analysis of the dc-side of an HVDC line transmission requires realistic models of the converters, the dc line, and other relevant equipment. These models must include all important paths for harmonic current, and appropriate sources of harmonic voltage generation. The classical converter modeling technique has been demonstrated to be insufficient in field measurements and analysis of the harmonic spectra found on recent HVDC line transmission. For this reason, a new model of the converter bridge which takes into account the major stray capacitances in the converter (the three-pulse model) has been developed, and is described in detail elsewhere. This paper presents comparisons between the classical and three-pulse calculations for the Intermountain Power Project (IPP) HVDC transmission. The calculation results from the three-pulse model agree favorably with the harmonics found in field measurements.

Bonneville Power Administration Transmission System Vegetation Management Program - Final Environmental Impact Statement  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Bonneville is responsible for maintaining a network of 24,000 kilometers (km) or 15,000 miles (mi.) of electric transmission lines and 350 substations in a region of diverse vegetation. This vegetation can interfere with electric power flow, pose safety problems for us and the public, and interfere with our ability to maintain these facilities. We need to (1) keep vegetation away from our electric facilities; (2) increase our program efficiency and consistency; (3) review herbicide use (under increased public scrutiny); and (4) maximize the range of tools we can use while minimizing environmental impact (Integrated Vegetation Management). This Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) establishes Planning Steps for managing vegetation for specific projects (to be tiered to this Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)). In addition to No Action (current practice), alternatives are presented for Rights-of-way, Electric Yards, and Non-electric Facilities (landscaping, work yards). Four vegetation control methods are analyzed manual, mechanical, herbicide, and biological. Also evaluated are 23 herbicide active ingredients and 4 herbicide application techniques (spot, localized, broadcast, and aerial). For rights-of-way, we consider three sets of alternatives: alternative management approaches (time-driven or establishing low-growing plant communities); alternative method packages; and, if herbicides are in a methods package, alternative vegetation selections (noxious weeds, deciduous, or any vegetation). For electric yards, one herbicide-use alternative is considered. For non-electric facilities, two method package alternatives are considered. For rights-of-way, the environmentally preferred alternative(s) would use manual, mechanical, and biological control methods, as well as spot and localized herbicide applications for noxious and deciduous plant species; the BPA-preferred alternative(s) would add broadcast and aerial herbicide applications, and would use herbicides on any vegetation. Both would favor a management approach that fosters low-growing plant communities.

Data centres power profile selecting policies for Demand Response: Insights of Green Supply Demand Agreement  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Demand Response mechanisms serve to preserve the stability of the power grid by shedding the electricity load of the consumers during power shortage situations in order to match power generation to demand. Data centres have been identified as excellent candidates to participate in such mechanisms. Recently a novel supply demand agreement have been proposed to foster power adaptation collaboration between energy provider and data centres. In this paper, we analyse the contractual terms of this agreement by proposing and studying different data centres power profile selecting policies. To this end, we setup a discrete event simulation and analysed the power grids state of a German energy provider. We believe that our analysis provides insight and knowledge for any energy utility in setting up the corresponding demand supply agreements.

Methane for Power Generation in Muaro Jambi: A Green Prosperity Model Project  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

NREL conducted eight model projects for Millennium Challenge Corporation's (MCC) Compact with Indonesia. Green Prosperity, the largest project of the Compact, seeks to address critical constraints to economic growth while supporting the Government of Indonesia's commitment to a more sustainable, less carbon-intensive future. This study evaluates electricity generation from the organic content of wastewater at a palm oil mill in Muaro Jambi, Sumatra. Palm mills use vast amounts of water in the production process resulting in problematic waste water called palm oil mill effluent (POME). The POME releases methane to the atmosphere in open ponds which could be covered to capture the methane to produce renewable electricity for rural villages. The study uses average Indonesia data to determine the economic viability of methane capture at a palm oil mill and also evaluates technology as well as social and environmental impacts of the project.

The application of fiber optic links and networks in safety-critical systems in the next generation of nuclear power plants, as well as in some digital upgrades in present-day plants, will mean that these links must be highly reliable and able to withstand the effect of environmental stressors present at the installation location. This paper discusses the failure modes and age-related mechanisms of fiber optic transmission components and identifies environmental stressors that could adversely affect their reliability over the long term. Some of the standards that could be used in their qualification for safety-critical applications are also discussed briefly.

An efficient numerical code for simulating the propagation of a high-power electromagnetic pulse in a vacuum transmission line is required to study the physical phenomena occurring in such a line, to analyze the operation of present-day megavolt generators at an {approx}10-TW power level, and to design such new devices. The main physical theoretical principles are presented, and the stability of flows in the near-threshold region at the boundary of the regime of magnetic self-insulation is investigated based on one-dimensional telegraph equations with electron losses. Numerical (difference) methods-specifically, a method of characteristics and a finite-difference scheme-are described and their properties and effectiveness are compared by analyzing the high-frequency modes.

Tests with a line-commutated converter as a variable inductive load on the Bonneville Power Administration transmission system  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A twelve-pulse, line-commutated converter, with a steady-state rating of 2.5 kV and 5.5 kA, formerly used for charging and discharging a superconducting magnet, was reconfigured as a static reactive power load. Tests staged at the Tacoma, WA, substation of the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) revealed that the converter could be used as a variable inductive load, provided a stable current controller was installed. The unit was modulated as a variable VAR load following a sinusoidal VAR demand signal with an amplitude up to 14.8 MVAR. The total losses at maximum VAR output were 370 kW. This paper explains the necessary modifications of the converter to operate as a variable reactive load. Measured current waveshapes are analyzed. The effects of such a load on the BPA transmission system are presented.

The Treatment of Renewable Energy Certificates, EmissionsAllowances, and Green Power Programs in State Renewables PortfolioStandards  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia have adopted mandatory renewables portfolio standards (RPS) over the last ten years. Renewable energy attributes-such as the energy source, conversion technology, plant location and vintage, and emissions-are usually required to verify compliance with these policies, sometimes through attributes bundled with electricity, and sometimes with the attributes unbundled from electricity and traded separately as renewable energy certificates (RECs). This report summarizes the treatment of renewable energy attributes in state RPS rules. Its purpose is to provide a source of information for states considering RPS policies, and also to draw attention to certain policy issues that arise when renewable attributes and RECs are used for RPS compliance. Three specific issues are addressed: (1) the degree to which unbundled RECs are allowed under existing state RPS programs and the status of systems to track RECs and renewable energy attributes; (2) definitions of the renewable energy attributes that must be included in order to meet state RPS obligations, including the treatment of available emissions allowances; and (3) state policies on whether renewable energy or RECs sold through voluntary green power transactions may count towards RPS obligations.

Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association's Springverville unit 3 earns POWER's highest honor  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

It is said that pioneers take the arrows. In the case of Springerville Unit 3 - a 418 MW(net) expansion of a Tucson Electric Power facility in Arizona and the first pulverized coal-fired units built in the US in more than decade, the arrows were many. Although Tri-State (the developer), Tuscon Electric (the host), and Bechtel Power (the EPC contractor) were wounded by delayed deliveries of major equipment, bankruptcy of a major supplier, and a labor shortage, the companies showed their pioneering spirit and completed the project ahead of schedule. For ushering in a new generation of clean and desperately needed baseload capacity, Springerville Unit 3 is POWER magazine's 2006 Plant of the Year. 9 figs.

Green Valley Galaxies  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The "green valley" is a wide region separating the blue and the red peaks in the ultraviolet-optical color magnitude diagram, first revealed using GALEX UV photometry. The term was coined by Christopher Martin in 2005. Green valley highlights the discriminating power of UV to very low relative levels of ongoing star formation, to which the optical colors, including u-r, are insensitive. It corresponds to massive galaxies below the star-forming "main" sequence, and therefore represents a critical tool for the study of the quenching of star formation and its possible resurgence in otherwise quiescent galaxies. This article reviews the results pertaining to morphology, structure, environment, dust content and gas properties of green valley galaxies in the local universe. Their relationship to AGN is also discussed. Attention is given to biases emerging from defining the "green valley" using optical colors. We review various evolutionary scenarios and we present evidence for a new, quasi-static view of the green ...

Estimating electricity storage power rating and discharge duration for utility transmission and distribution deferral :a study for the DOE energy storage program.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report describes a methodology for estimating the power and energy capacities for electricity energy storage systems that can be used to defer costly upgrades to fully overloaded, or nearly overloaded, transmission and distribution (T&D) nodes. This ''sizing'' methodology may be used to estimate the amount of storage needed so that T&D upgrades may be deferred for one year. The same methodology can also be used to estimate the characteristics of storage needed for subsequent years of deferral.

Enlarge image This map shows the location of wind resources and transmission lines in the United States. See a larger image or state maps. NREL researchers are engaged in transmission planning and analysis to strengthen the electric power system through the integration of solar and wind power. As demand for electricity increases, electric power system operators must plan for and construct new generation and transmission lines. However, variable generation such as solar and wind power plants are often located far from the loads they serve. They depend on transmission lines to transport the electricity they produce to load centers. NREL is working with industry and utilities to address issues related to

Green Codes: Energy-Efficient Short-Range Communication  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

A green code attempts to minimize the total energy per-bit required to communicate across a noisy channel. The classical information-theoretic approach neglects the energy expended in processing the data at the encoder and the decoder and only minimizes the energy required for transmissions. Since there is no cost associated with using more degrees of freedom, the traditionally optimal strategy is to communicate at rate zero. In this work, we use our recently proposed model for the power consumed by iterative message passing. Using generalized sphere-packing bounds on the decoding power, we find lower bounds on the total energy consumed in the transmissions and the decoding, allowing for freedom in the choice of the rate. We show that contrary to the classical intuition, the rate for green codes is bounded away from zero for any given error probability. In fact, as the desired bit-error probability goes to zero, the optimizing rate for our bounds converges to 1.

We consider Schr\\"odinger equations and Fokker-Planck equations in one dimension, and study the low-energy asymptotic behavior of the Green function using a new method. In this method, the coefficient of the expansion in powers of the wave number can be systematically calculated to arbitrary order, and the behavior of the remainder term can be analyzed on the basis of an expression in terms of transmission and reflection coefficients.

Green Manufacturing  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Green Manufacturing Initiative (GMI): The initiative provides a conduit between the university and industry to facilitate cooperative research programs of mutual interest to support green (sustainable) goals and efforts. In addition to the operational savings that greener practices can bring, emerging market demands and governmental regulations are making the move to sustainable manufacturing a necessity for success. The funding supports collaborative activities among universities such as the University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Purdue University and among 40 companies to enhance economic and workforce development and provide the potential of technology transfer. WMU participants in the GMI activities included 20 faculty, over 25 students and many staff from across the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences; the College of Arts and Sciences' departments of Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Geology; the College of Business; the Environmental Research Institute; and the Environmental Studies Program. Many outside organizations also contribute to the GMI's success, including Southwest Michigan First; The Right Place of Grand Rapids, MI; Michigan Department of Environmental Quality; the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth; and the Michigan Manufacturers Technical Center.

Mini Renewable Hybrid Distributed Power Plants for Lebanon  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Lebanon has spent billions of dollars on its electricity sector, but the demand is higher than available power. In peak demand time, blackouts are the major phenomena in almost all the Lebanese regions. As the world today is going into green energy, this project This step will minimize green house gas emissions, increase the reliability of the grid finally, increase the power generation capacity in Lebanon. For all the mentioned problems, distributed generation using hybrid-renewable energy systems is proposed as a future solution for the Lebanese energy sector. Losses in the transmission and distribution system will be reduced since power is generated near loads. The grid availability and stability will increase and individuals can save money in their electricity bill and finally the generated power is clean and nonpolluting. A study of a design will be launched, including simulation using MATLAB/SIMULINK.

Transmission line capital costs  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The displacement or deferral of conventional AC transmission line installation is a key benefit associated with several technologies being developed with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy`s Office of Energy Management (OEM). Previous benefits assessments conducted within OEM have been based on significantly different assumptions for the average cost per mile of AC transmission line. In response to this uncertainty, an investigation of transmission line capital cost data was initiated. The objective of this study was to develop a database for preparing preliminary estimates of transmission line costs. An extensive search of potential data sources identified databases maintained by the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) and the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) as superior sources of transmission line cost data. The BPA and WAPA data were adjusted to a common basis and combined together. The composite database covers voltage levels from 13.8 to 765 W, with cost estimates for a given voltage level varying depending on conductor size, tower material type, tower frame type, and number of circuits. Reported transmission line costs vary significantly, even for a given voltage level. This can usually be explained by variation in the design factors noted above and variation in environmental and land (right-of-way) costs, which are extremely site-specific. Cost estimates prepared from the composite database were compared to cost data collected by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for investor-owned utilities from across the United States. The comparison was hampered because the only design specifications included with the FERC data were voltage level and line length. Working within this limitation, the FERC data were not found to differ significantly from the composite database. Therefore, the composite database was judged to be a reasonable proxy for estimating national average costs.

Hybrid Transmission Corridor study  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Hybrid Transmission Corridors are areas where High Voltage Alternating Current (HVAC) transmission lines and High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission lines exist in close proximity of each other. Because of the acceptance of HVDC as a means of transporting electric power over long distances and the difficulties associated with obtaining new right-of-ways, HVDC lines may have to share the same transmission corridor with HVAC lines. The interactions between conductors energized with different types of voltages causes changes in the electrical stresses applied to the conductors and insulators. As a result, corona phenomena, field effects and insulation performance can be affected. This report presents the results of an investigation of the HVAC-HVDC interaction and its effect on corona and AC and DC electric field phenomena. The method of investigation was based on calculation methods developed at the EPRI High Voltage Transmission Research Center (HVTRC) and supported by the results of full and reduced-scale line tests. Also, a survey of existing hybrid corridors is given along with the results of measurements made at one of those corridors. A number of examples in which an existing AC corridor may be transformed into a hybrid corridor are discussed. The main result of the research is an analytical/empirical model for predicting the electrical/environmental performance of hybrid corridors, a definition of ACDC interaction and a set of criteria for specifying when the interaction becomes significant, and a set of design rules.

Negative differential transmission in graphene  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

By using the Kubo linear response theory with the Keldysh Green function approach, we investigate the mechanism leading to the negative differential transmission in a system with the equilibrium electron density much smaller than the photon-excited one. It is shown that the negative differential transmission can appear at low probe-photon energy (in the order of the scattering rate) or at high energy (much larger than the scattering rate). For the low probe-photon energy case, the negative differential transmission is found to come from the increase of the intraband conductivity due to the large variation of electron distribution after the pumping. As for the high probe-photon energy case, the negative differential transmission is shown to tend to appear with the hot-electron temperature being closer to the equilibrium one and the chemical potential higher than the equilibrium one but considerably smaller than half of the probe-photon energy. We also show that this negative differential transmission can come from both the inter- and the intraband components of the conductivity. Especially, for the interband component, its contribution to the negative differential transmission is shown to come from both the Hartree-Fock self-energy and the scattering. Furthermore, the influence of the Coulomb-hole self-energy is also addressed.
