Cover Story: Stability analysis is of paramount importance for conventional power systems and large-scale microgrids. In this paper, eigenvalue-based stability analysis for a large-scale microgrid operated at constant frequency has been conducted with the consideration of balance of both real power and reactive power. By choosing proper parameters’ values for proportional resonant controller and reference power generation, eigenvalues of the system state-space equation fall on the left-hand side of the complex plane. Therefore, the system stability is ensured.View this paper.

Stability Analysis of Autonomous Microgrid Operated at Constant-Frequency with the Consideration of Reactive Power Balance

Received: 01 September 2023;  Published: 29 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2304039


Large-scale autonomous microgrids have potential application values as they can increase renewable energy penetration level without compromising the stability of the existing large power systems. Before their widespread implementation, critical issues like stability analysis etc need to be solved. This paper analyses the stability in an autonomous microgrid operated at constant frequency with the consideration of reactive power balance. Difference equations of reactive power for the grid-forming [...]

Array Formation Testing with Multiple Azimuthal and Axial Pressure Transducers

Received: 12 April 2023;  Published: 27 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2304038


An early formation tester operating a “sink probe” that extracts fluids from the borehole, also measures pressures at its location; pressures are additionally collected at two passive sensors, one situated 180 deg away and the second about meter axially. These positions are not conducive to accurate permeability predictions, since pressure transient signals used for inverse analysis attenuate very rapidly. Closer probe spacings offer formation evaluation advantages at low mobilities because Darc [...]

Saving is Losing: Pumping Cost vs. GHG Emissions in Water Distribution Systems

Received: 26 May 2023;  Published: 21 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2304037


Global climate change has necessitated the reduction of GHG emissions. Water distribution system (WDS) pumping adds to these emissions and, therefore, should be reduced. Under electricity hourly cost tariffs, utilities are incentivized to pump during the nighttime hours. This can have a deleterious effect, however, on GHG emissions. To quantify this effect, a modeling study of twelve real WDSs was performed with an electricity tariff. The systems all had the typical tank-level-based [...]

Net Zero Corridors: A Case Study Approach from Perth, Australia to Decarbonize Urban Power and Transport

Received: 27 February 2023;  Published: 17 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2304036


The transition to net zero cities is a pivotal challenge in the face of climate change. This research introduces a novel methodology termed "Net Zero Corridors," which emphasizes a bottom-up approach to decarbonize urban power and transport systems. By focusing on urban corridors, this method integrates distributed power systems with urban transport, offering a localized solution to the broader challenge of urban decarbonization. Drawing from urban fabric theory and urban m [...]

Efficient Industrial Wastewater and Leachate Evaporation Utilizing Heat Localization in Porous Media

Received: 31 August 2023;  Published: 16 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2304035


In this paper, an efficient industrial wastewater and leachate evaporation method is proposed and tested experimentally. The goal of this study is to investigate whether the addition of a carbon foam (CF) porous layer can lead to energy savings by evaporating more water mass per unit of energy input. The standard boiling evaporator layout was redesigned by placing the heating element in the upper region of the tank and CF underneath the heat source. The CF purposed to localize the energy in an a [...]

An Adsorption-Desorption Heat Engine for Power Generation from Waste Heat

Received: 17 October 2023;  Published: 14 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2304034


According to the United States Department of Energy, waste heat recovery would allow up to a 20% reduction in greenhouse gases (GHG) emission. Most of the waste energy is discharged as a low-grade heat at temperatures less than 250°C. Therefore, the development of new technologies and the enhancement of existing ones to convert low-grade heat into electrical or mechanical energy are of great importance. The working principle of adsorption-desorption heat pumps with cyclic switching between adsor [...]

Technical Analysis of Sawdust-to-Power: A Paradigm Shift in Waste Management in a Typical Developing Economy

Received: 01 August 2023;  Published: 08 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2304033


The proper management of sawdust is critical to socioeconomic development. In this research, waste-to-energy has been proposed to utilize sawdust in selected timber markets in Port Harcourt, namely, Illoabuchi Timber Market, Marine Base Timber Market, and Mile 3 Timber Market. A quantitative approach has been taken to estimate the sawdust generation, energy potential, power generation capacities, and pollutant reduction of indiscriminate combustion of sawdust. The findings suggest th [...]

Na+ Mobility in PEO-Based Composite Solid-State Electrolytes by NMR

Received: 04 August 2023;  Published: 02 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2304032


Charge transfer and mobility are essential for electrochemical processes in batteries, which need to be understood in detail for optimization, especially in the case of all-solid-state batteries. Wide line NMR is well-known in solid-state NMR and allows the quantification of ion mobility in ordered crystalline and amorphous structures. Temperature-dependent 23Na-NMR is sensitive to ion mobility via longitudinal relaxation, but also via line analysis and transverse relaxati [...]

Enhancement Techniques for the Reduction of Heating and Cooling Loads in Buildings: A Review

Received: 12 June 2023;  Published: 19 October 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2304031


The building sector is rated as a big consumer of electric energy and emissions, responsible for about 40% of final electric energy consumption. As a result, the Paris Agreement 2015 set a goal for buildings and the construction sector to reach a nearly zero-carbon stage by 2050. This urged most countries to create regulations for the construction sector and invest in energy efficiency programs. The present paper aims to present an updated review of building energy-saving solutions and technique [...]
