  1. 1. Power to the people Diffusion of renewable electricity in rural areas of developing countries

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Pranpreya Sriwannawit; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; adoption; bibliometric; developing country; diffusion; photovoltaic; renewable energy; rural electrification; solar energy; sustainable development; bibliometri; diffusion; förnybar energi; hållbar utveckling; införande; landsbygdselektrifiering; solceller; solenergi; utvecklingsland; Industriell ekonomi och organisation; Industrial Engineering and Management;

    Abstract : Nearly all the 1.3 billion people in the world with no electricity access live in developing countries. On the one hand, electricity is a basic need. On the other hand, the environment should not be further damaged. READ MORE

  2. 2. Planning Models for Single Wire Earth Return Power Distribution Networks

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Geofrey Bakkabulindi; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rural electrification; power distribution planning; Single Wire Earth Return; distribution power flow; power system modeling; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : The high cost of grid extension to rural areas, often characterized by scattered communities with low load densities, requires the use of low cost electrification technologies to ensure economic viability. In Single Wire Earth Return (SWER) power distribution networks, the earth itself forms the current return path of the single phase system leading to significant cost savings on conductors, poles and poletop hardware compared to conventional systems.
