The Hydro Turbine Governor - and Why it is Important to Understand it
John Codrington, P. Eng.
Hatch Inc., Niagara Falls, Ontario (www.hatch.ca)
An overview of the hydro turbine governor will be given. The idea of the governor was first treated analytically by Clark Maxwell in the 19th century. Governor action was correctly seen as something very important in the days when hydro plants were installed as the sole or the principal contributor to a small power system.
Power Quality: Definition, aspects, problems and solutions
Dr. Walid G. Morsi, University of New Brunswick
Fredericton, New Brunswick
The subject of the electric power quality has gained attention in the last decade as the electric power system is undergoing deregulation and with the introduction of the concept of the smart grid with either renewable-based or non-renewable based distributed generation.
Design Issues and Practical Solutions for Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicle Propulsion Systems
Tanvir Rahman, Member, IEEE, and Sheldon S. Williamson, Member, IEEE
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs) are generally regarded as the future for a sustainable automobile industry. Encompassing sufficient energy storage on-board is one of the major hurdles, delaying the proliferation of EVs in the commercial market. Hence, there is a need to build more efficient, light weight, and compact electric propulsion systems, so as to maximize driving range per charge.
Design of Bilateral Switched Reluctance Linear Generator
Hao Chen (SM’08) received the B.S. and Ph.D. Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China
The Switched Reluctance linear machine system has the advantages in simple and firm structure wih no
brush, no winding and no permanent magnet, no “direct-short-circuit” fault on the power converter, the
strong mechanical intensity and high fault tolerant capability. It has the good application prospect on
oceanic tidal and wave energy linear generator system.
