    Migratable Power System Transient Stability Assessment Method Based on Improved XGBoost

    Ying Qu1, Jinhao Wang1, Xueting Cheng1, Jie Hao1, Weiru Wang1, Zhewen Niu2, Yuxiang Wu2,*

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1847-1863, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.048300

    Abstract The data-driven transient stability assessment (TSA) of power systems can predict online real-time prediction by learning the temporal features before and after faults. However, the accuracy of the assessment is limited by the quality of the data and has weak transferability. Based on this, this paper proposes a method for TSA of power systems based on an improved extreme gradient boosting (XGBoost) model. Firstly, the gradient detection method is employed to remove noise interference while maintaining the original time series trend. On this basis, a focal loss function is introduced to guide the training of… More >

    Jie Ma1, Pengcheng Yue2, Haozheng Yu1, Yuqing Zhang3, Youwen Zhang1, Cuiping Li3, Junhui Li3,*, Wenwen Qin3, Yong Guo1

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1823-1846, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.048225

    Abstract In recent years, the proportion of installed wind power in the three north regions where wind power bases are concentrated is increasing, but the peak regulation capacity of the power grid in the three north regions of China is limited, resulting in insufficient local wind power consumption capacity. Therefore, this paper proposes a two-layer optimal scheduling strategy based on wind power consumption benefits to improve the power grid's wind power consumption capacity. The objective of the upper model is to minimize the peak-valley difference of the system load, which is mainly to optimize the system… More >

    Power Quality Disturbance Identification Basing on Adaptive Kalman Filter and Multi-Scale Channel Attention Fusion Convolutional Network

    Feng Zhao, Guangdi Liu*, Xiaoqiang Chen, Ying Wang

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1865-1882, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.048209

    Abstract In light of the prevailing issue that the existing convolutional neural network (CNN) power quality disturbance identification method can only extract single-scale features, which leads to a lack of feature information and weak anti-noise performance, a new approach for identifying power quality disturbances based on an adaptive Kalman filter (KF) and multi-scale channel attention (MS-CAM) fused convolutional neural network is suggested. Single and composite-disruption signals are generated through simulation. The adaptive maximum likelihood Kalman filter is employed for noise reduction in the initial disturbance signal, and subsequent integration of multi-scale features into the conventional CNN… More >

    SHORT COMMUNICATION

    New Definitions of the Isometric Latitude and the Mercator Projection

    Miljenko Lapaine*

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.33, pp. 155-165, 2024, DOI:10.32604/rig.2024.052258

    Abstract The short communication discusses the interrelationships of loxodromes, isometric latitudes and the normal aspect of Mercator projection. It is shown that by applying the isometric latitude, a very simple equation of the loxodrome on the sphere is reached. The consequence of this is that the isometric latitude can be defined using the generalized longitude, and not only using the latitude, as was common until now. Generalized longitude is the longitude defined for every real number; modulo 2π of generalized and usual longitude are congruent. Since the image of the loxodrome in the plane of the… More > Graphic Abstract

    Wood By-Products as UV Protection: A Consequence Review

    Naglaa Salem El‑Sayed, Mohamed Hasanin, Samir Kamel*

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 699-720, 2024, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2024.049118

    Abstract In recent decades, the ozone layer has suffered considerable damage, increasing the entry of ultraviolet (UV) light into the atmosphere and reaching the earth’s surface, negatively affecting life. Accordingly, researchers aimed to solve this problem by synthesizing advanced UV-shielding materials. On the other hand, developing an easy and green strategy to prepare functional materials without standing properties based on naturally abundant and environmentally friendly raw materials is highly desirable for sustainable development. Because biomass-derived materials are sustainable and biodegradable, they present a promising substitute for petroleum-based polymers. The three main structural constituents of the plant More > Graphic Abstract

    Fabrication of Core-Shell Hydrogel Bead Based on Sodium Alginate and Chitosan for Methylene Blue Adsorption

    Xiaoyu Chen*

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 815-826, 2024, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2024.048470

    Abstract A novel core-shell hydrogel bead was fabricated for effective removal of methylene blue dye from aqueous solutions. The core, made of sodium alginate-g-polyacrylamide and attapulgite nanofibers, was cross-linked by Calcium ions (Ca). The shell, composed of a chitosan/activated carbon mixture, was then coated onto the core. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy confirmed the grafting polymerization of acrylamide onto sodium alginate. Scanning electron microscopy images showed the core-shell structure. The core exhibited a high water uptake ratio, facilitating the diffusion of methylene blue into the core. During the diffusion process, the methylene blue was first adsorbed by More > Graphic Abstract

    New Problems of Boiler Corrosion after Coupling Combustion of Coal and Biomass and Anti-Corrosion Technologies

    Lei Wang1, Ziran Ma1,*, Chunlin Zhao1, Jiali Zhou1, Hongyan Wang1, Ge Li1, Ningling Zhou2

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 799-814, 2024, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2024.047343

    Abstract This study explores the corrosion issues arising from the coupled combustion of coal and biomass and proposes potential solutions. Biomass, as a renewable energy source, offers advantages in energy-saving and carbon reduction. However, the corrosive effects of alkali metal compounds, sulfur (S) and chlorine (Cl) elements in the ash after combustion cannot be underestimated due to the high volatile content of biomass fuels. We investigate the corrosion mechanisms, as well as the transfer of Cl and alkali metal elements during this process. Comparative corrosion analyses are conducted among coal-fired boilers, pure biomass boilers and boilers… More >
