  1. 1. The Politics of People - Not Just Mangroves and Monkeys : A study of the theory and practice of community-based management of natural resources in Zanzibar

    Author : Fred Saunders; Björn Hassler; Vesa-Matti Loiske; Frances Cleaver; Södertörns högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Actor-oriented theory; CBNRM; Community conservation; Conservation conflict; CPR theory; Environmental science; ICDP; Institutional theory; Mangroves; Participatory governance; Power; Zanzibar;

    Abstract : Community-based management of natural resource (CBNRM) projects have commonly failed to deliver conservation and development benefits. This thesis examined how the theoretical assumptions of common pool resource (CPR) theory have contributed to the indifferent performance of CBNRM projects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Purchasing Power and Purchasing Strategies - Insights From the Humanitarian Sector

    Author : Ala Pazirandeh; Teknisk logistik; []

    Abstract : In this dissertation, we discuss how buyers practice purchasing strategies in an asymmetric power situation favoring suppliers, and how their purchasing strategies practiced impact their purchasing power and buyer-supplier relationships. Organizations enter exchange relationships to access required resources not produced internally, and are exposed to uncertainty from not being able to fully control or predict flow of resources.

  3. 3. Hydropower generator and power system interaction

    Author : Johan Bladh; Urban Lundin; Rafael Escarela-Perez; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Amortisseur windings; applied voltage test; automatic voltage regulators; damper windings; damping torque; empirical modelling; equivalent circuits; excitation control; finite element method; hydropower generators; power system restoration; power system stability; synchronous machines; self excitation; shaft torque amplification; short circuit test; single machine infinite bus; slip test; standstill frequency response test; subsynchronous oscillations; synchronising torque; synchronous generators; torsional interaction.; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : After decades of routine operation, the hydropower industry faces new challenges. Large-scale integration of other renewable sources of generation in the power system accentuates the role of hydropower as a regulating resource. READ MORE

  4. 4. Market-Oriented Programming and its Application to Power Load Management

    Author : Fredrik Ygge; Institutionen för datavetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Distribution Automation Demand Side Management DA DSM ; Power Load Management; Coordination Mechanisms; Market-Oriented Programming; Multi-Agent Systems; Systems engineering; computer technology; Data- och systemvetenskap; Market-oriented programming; power load management; computational markets; intelligent agents; distributed resource allocation;

    Abstract : Market-oriented programming is a new approach to design and implementation of resource allocation mechanisms in computer systems. It has its roots in different disciplines, such as economics and computer science (in particular the area of multi-agent systems). READ MORE

  5. 5. Resource Allocation in Downlink Coordinated Multi-Point Systems

    Author : Jingya Li; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : backhaul latency; Coordinated multi-point CoMP transmission; imperfect synchronization; fractional frequency reuse; resource allocation; general duality theory; imperfect channel state information; inter-cluster interference coordination;

    Abstract : The raised user expectations of quality of service and the rapid growth of the data traffics impose a great challenge for mobile communication systems. The performance, e.g., the spectrum efficiency, peak data rate, cell-edge data rate, of current cellular systems ismainly limited due to the presence of inter-cell interference. READ MORE
