    Abstract: Peak load demand is used in energy demand management to describe a period in which electrical power is expected to be provided for a sustained period at a significantly higher than average supply level. In power system development planning, effort is made to accurately estimate the immediate peak load demand as well as forecast the future peak load... Show More

    Abstract: China's economic growth prompted the increase in carbon emissions for the past years, which has been caught the attention from the government. Actually, a large share of China's carbon emissions is produced by the electricity sector. And that means the electricity sector plays a key role in emission reduction. Carbon emission reductions during 2009... Show More

    Abstract: For the machining of superalloys, unconventional methods such as electroerosion, electrochemistry and others are frequently used due to the hardness of the material. Although, for some other operations, theconventional machining is essential. Because of their high hardness and improved mechanical properties, these superalloys require specific mater... Show More

    Abstract: Power transformers are crucial components in electric power systems, as such, it is required that they are built to highest standards of precision and quality and designed for a long life-time. As the average age of these transformers is in the range of 30 to 40 years in many countries, the probability of malfunction is on the rise. This situation ... Show More
