    Smart Micro Grid Energy System Management Based on Optimum Running Cost for Rural Communities in Rwanda

    Fabien Mukundufite1,*, Jean Marie Vianney Bikorimana1, Alexander Kyaruzi Lugatona2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1805-1821, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.051398

    Abstract The governmental electric utility and the private sector are joining hands to meet the target of electrifying all households by 2024. However, the aforementioned goal is challenged by households that are scattered in remote areas. So far, Solar Home Systems (SHS) have mostly been applied to increase electricity access in rural areas. SHSs have continuous constraints to meet electricity demands and cannot run income-generating activities. The current research presents the feasibility study of electrifying Remera village with the smart microgrid as a case study. The renewable energy resources available in Remera are the key sources… More >

    Shale Fracturability Graphic Template Based on Mixed Analytic Hierar-chy Process and Mutation Theory

    Sichen Li1,2, Dehua Liu1,2,*, Liang Cheng1,2, Pan Ma1,2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1921-1943, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.049906

    Abstract Due to the depletion of conventional energy reserves, there has been a global shift towards non-conventional energy sources. Shale oil and gas have emerged as key alternatives. These resources have dense and heterogeneous reservoirs, which require hydraulic fracturing to extract. This process depends on identifying optimal fracturing layers, also known as ‘sweet spots’. However, there is currently no uniform standard for locating these sweet spots. This paper presents a new model for evaluating fracturability that aims to address the current gap in the field. The model utilizes a hierarchical analysis approach and a mutation model, More >

    Abstract Aiming at the problem of energy storage unit failure in the spring operating mechanism of low voltage circuit breakers (LVCBs). A fault diagnosis algorithm based on an improved Sparrow Search Algorithm (ISSA) optimized Backpropagation Neural Network (BPNN) is proposed to improve the operational safety of LVCB. Taking the 1.5kV/4000A/75kA LVCB as an example. According to the current operating characteristics of the energy storage motor, fault characteristics are extracted based on Empirical Wavelet Transform (EWT). Traditional BPNN has problems such as difficulty adjusting network weights and thresholds, being sensitive to initial weights, and quickly falling into More >

    Knowledge Mapping of Hybrid Solar PV and Wind Energy Standalone Systems: A Bibliometric Analysis

    Quan Zhou*, Haiyang Li

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1781-1803, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.049387

    Abstract Renewable energy is becoming more attractive as traditional fossil fuels are rapidly depleted and expensive, and their use would release pollutants. Power systems that use both wind and solar energy are more reliable and efficient than those that utilize only one energy. Hybrid renewable energy systems (HRES) are viable for remote areas operating in standalone mode. This paper aims to present the state-of-the-art research on off-grid solar-wind hybrid energy systems over the last two decades. More than 1500 published articles extracted from the Web of Science are analyzed by bibliometric methods and processed by CiteSpace… More >

    Arc Grounding Fault Identification Using Integrated Characteristics in the Power Grid

    Penghui Liu1,2,*, Yaning Zhang1, Yuxing Dai2, Yanzhou Sun1,3

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1883-1901, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.049318

    Abstract Arc grounding faults occur frequently in the power grid with small resistance grounding neutral points. The existing arc fault identification technology only uses the fault line signal characteristics to set the identification index, which leads to detection failure when the arc zero-off characteristic is short. To solve this problem, this paper presents an arc fault identification method by utilizing integrated signal characteristics of both the fault line and sound lines. Firstly, the waveform characteristics of the fault line and sound lines under an arc grounding fault are studied. After that, the convex hull, gradient product,… More >

    Research on the Icing Diagnosis of Wind Turbine Blades Based on FS–XGBoost–EWMA

    Jicai Guo1,2, Xiaowen Song1,2,*, Chang Liu1,2, Yanfeng Zhang1,2, Shijie Guo1,2, Jianxin Wu1,2, Chang Cai3, Qing’an Li3,*

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1739-1758, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.048854

    Abstract In winter, wind turbines are susceptible to blade icing, which results in a series of energy losses and safe operation problems. Therefore, blade icing detection has become a top priority. Conventional methods primarily rely on sensor monitoring, which is expensive and has limited applications. Data-driven blade icing detection methods have become feasible with the development of artificial intelligence. However, the data-driven method is plagued by limited training samples and icing samples; therefore, this paper proposes an icing warning strategy based on the combination of feature selection (FS), eXtreme Gradient Boosting (XGBoost) algorithm, and exponentially weighted… More >

    An Algorithm for Short-Circuit Current Interval in Distribution Networks with Inverter Type Distributed Generation Based on Affine Arithmetic

    Yan Zhang1, Bowen Du2,*, Benren Pan1, Guannan Wang1, Guoqiang Xie1, Tong Jiang2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1903-1920, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.048718

    Abstract During faults in a distribution network, the output power of a distributed generation (DG) may be uncertain. Moreover, the output currents of distributed power sources are also affected by the output power, resulting in uncertainties in the calculation of the short-circuit current at the time of a fault. Additionally, the impacts of such uncertainties around short-circuit currents will increase with the increase of distributed power sources. Thus, it is very important to develop a method for calculating the short-circuit current while considering the uncertainties in a distribution network. In this study, an affine arithmetic algorithm… More >

    Xin Shen1, Jiahao Li1, Yujun Yin1, Jianlin Tang2,3,*, Weibin Lin2,3, Mi Zhou2,3

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1945-1961, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.048388

    Abstract Advanced carbon emission factors of a power grid can provide users with effective carbon reduction advice, which is of immense importance in mobilizing the entire society to reduce carbon emissions. The method of calculating node carbon emission factors based on the carbon emissions flow theory requires real-time parameters of a power grid. Therefore, it cannot provide carbon factor information beforehand. To address this issue, a prediction model based on the graph attention network is proposed. The model uses a graph structure that is suitable for the topology of the power grid and designs a supervised More >
