    Abstract : Information technology has become increasingly important to individuals and organizations alike. Not only does IT allow us to do what we always did faster and more effectively, but it also allows us to do new things, organize ourselves differently, and work in ways previously unimaginable.

  2. 2. Risk-based methods for reliability investments in electric power distribution systems

    Author : Karin Alvehag; Lennart Söder; Kjølle Gerd; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Distribution system reliability; risk management; quality regulation design; customer interruption costs; weather modeling; Monte Carlo simulations; Electric power engineering; Elkraftteknik;

    Abstract : Society relies more and more on a continuous supply of electricity. However, while underinvestments in reliability lead to an unacceptable number of power interruptions, overinvestments result in too high costs for society. READ MORE

  3. 3. Essays on the Infestation of Lake Victoria by the Water Hyacinth

    Author : Eseza Kateregga; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Water hyacinth; water hyacinth indicators; water hyacinth induced catchability coefficients; intrinsic growth rates for stocks; carrying capacity; elasticity of catch with respect to fishing effort; electricity outage costs.;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four essays that seek to estimate the abundance of the water hyacinth in Lake Victoria during the 1990s and analyse its effects on the catchability of fish, estimate the elasticities of catch with respect to the various components of effort in lake Victoria fisheries, and estimate the welfare costs of electricity outages. In the first essay, data on the extent of water hyacinth mat coverage collected from a number of reports and surveys is used to fit time trend water hyacinth mats growth curves for the three sections of Lake Victoria.

  4. 4. Impact of dependencies in risk assessments of power distribution systems

    Author : Karin Alvehag; Lennart Söder; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electrical engineering; Elektroteknik;

    Abstract :  Society has become increasingly dependent on electricity, so power system reliability is of crucial importance. However, while underinvestment leads to an unacceptable number of power outages, overinvestment will result in costs that are too high for society. The challenge is to find a socioeconomically adequate level of risk. READ MORE

  5. 5. Helium measuring system for on-line fuel and control rod integrity surveillance in BWRs

    Author : Irina Larsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : helium measurements; helium release; fuel and control rod failures;

    Abstract : Accurate supervision of fuel and control rod integrity in a nuclear reactor core is very important for maintaining a safe and reliable operation of the reactor. Fuel rod failures can cause increased doses to personnel in the power plant, increased backend costs, limitations of the reactor operation and unplanned shut downs, which can lead to large economic losses.
