This thesis evaluates new, large power generating plants of
the various types expected to be practicable in the time span of
the next 50 years. By using thermodynamic principles, the plants
are evaluated on the basis of conservation of energy; the basic
assumption is that the best policy is the...
Wind energy plays an important and growing role in the US energy profile. While other countries have expanded their wind industries into offshore development, large investment costs have hindered progress in the US offshore market despite the larger and more consistent resource available offshore. In this research, I explore the...
The purpose of this thesis is the determination
of the load characteristics of the Steam-Hyciro-Electric Plant owned and operated by the Lebanon
Electric Power and Water Co. This corporation furnishes
electrical energy for power and lighting service
and also the water supply to the city of
The data used in the design of this hydro-electric
generating station was furnished by Hon. Walter M. Pierce
from a survey conducted by T. R. Barry C. E. in the service
of the Grande Ronde Water Co. during the summer of
In the preparation of this thesis there were...
This thesis analyzes two systems that can meet low-grade heating
and/or cooling demands by operating in conjunction with thermal-electric
power plants. At the application site, one of the systems, HPS, has
water-to-air heat pumps that are connected to the supply and return
lines of a plant-to-user loop. During heating, the...
One of the most important and likewise practical problems that oonfront
the Electrioal Engineers of the present daysis the design and the
construotion of Hydro Electrio Power plants for the generating of electrioal
energy,both for power and li;hting purposes. In order that we
might become better acquainted with the facts...
A method is presented for appraising the hazards to nuclear
power plants from missiles from surface traffic accident explosions.
Due to the infrequency with which surface traffic accident explosions
occur and the poor records kept concerning them, a probabilistic
method is chosen to investigate the overall hazards potential to
