Membraneless Method for Electricity Generation from Salinity Gradients
Membraneless Method for Generating Electricity from Salinity GradientsCase ID19/0041BackgroundThe blue energy, i.e. the Gibbs energy from mixing seawater and river water, is a promising source of clean energy. Pressure-retarded osmosis (PRO) and reverse electrodialysis (RED) are by far the most successful methods for extracting such energy, although...

Dynamic Reactive Compensation
Dynamic Reactive Compensation The voltage profile of distribution feeders in the traditional power system is illustrated in Figure 1 where the red series represents the primary feeder voltage and the red points as the customer service voltage. The voltage starts out high at the beginning of the feeder (substation transformer) and drops as power flows...
