  1. 1. On Techno-economic Assessment of a Multi-terminal VSC-HVDC in AC Transmission Systems

    Author : Feng Wang; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transmission Grid.; Loss minimization; AC DC system; Transmission expansion planning; Multi-terminal VSC-HVDC; Cost minimization; Cost-benefit analysis; Electric power system; Optimal power flow;

    Abstract : The Voltage Source Converter based Multi-Terminal high voltage Direct Current transmission system (VSC-MTDC) is currently considered as an attractive technical option for increased transmission capacity and improved controllability and flexibility of an electric power grid, thanks to its unique performance characteristics, and the possibility of using the extruded XLPE cables. In the planning process of embedding a VSC-MTDC system into an ac transmission grid, one must assess the potential values in terms of improved energy efficiency, i. READ MORE

  2. 2. Transport and environment incentive policy instruments : effects and interactions

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Xing Liu; Örebro universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Congestion pricing; Equity effects; Modal choice; Social marginal cost; Externalities; Transport taxation; Carbon tax; Carbon leakage; Computable General Equilibrium Model; VTTS; Simultaneous decision model; Random utility model; Logistics cost minimization; Additionality; Klimp; Climate subsidy program; Subsidy; CDM; Business Studies; Företagsekonomi;

    Abstract : This dissertation studies issues related to the evaluation of the effects and interactions of transport and environmental incentive policy instruments. Essay 1: Green cars sterilize congestion charges: a model analysis of the reduced impact of Stockholm road tolls calibrates a modal-choice model with data from the Stockholm road toll and uses it to study the sensitivity of congestion toll effects to some seemly subtle changes in the toll system design and external circumstances.

  3. 3. Energy and Design Cost Efficiency for Streaming Applications on Systems-on-Chip

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Universitetsservice US AB

    Author : Jun Zhu; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Streaming applications; Systems-on-chip; Synchronous dataflow; energy efficiency; buffer minimization; performance analysis; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Informatics; computer and systems science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : With the increasing capacity of today's integrated circuits, a number ofheterogeneous  system-on-chip (SoC)  architectures  in embedded  systemshave been proposed. In order to achieve energy and design cost efficientstreaming applications  on these  systems, new design  space explorationframeworks  and  performance  analysis  approaches are  required.

  4. 4. On implementation of an endodontic program : change of practice, treatment outcome and cost-effectiveness

    University dissertation from Faculty of Odontology, Malmö University

    Author : Margaretha Koch; Malmö University.; [2013]
    Keywords : ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; Medicine; endodontic program; treatment outcome; cost-effectiveness; dental practice; change of practice; NiTiR; root canal treatment; root canal therapy;

    Abstract : It is widely accepted that the uptake of research findings by practitioners is unpredictable, yet until they are adopted, advances in technology and clinical research cannot improve health outcomes in patients. Despite extensive research there is limited knowledge of the processes by which changes occur and ways of measuring the effectiveness of change of practice. READ MORE
