Optimal Delivery Scheduling and Charging of EVs in the Navigation of a City Map
(Ieee-inst Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2018-09-01)
This paper presents a mixed integer linear programming model to optimize the costs of maintenance and extra hours tits scheduling a fleet of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) so that the products arc delivered to prespecified ...
Electrostatic interaction optimization improves catalytic rates and thermotolerance on xylanases
(Cell Press, 2021-06-01)
Understanding the aspects that contribute to improving proteins' biochemical properties is of high relevance for protein engineering. Properties such as the catalytic rate, thermal stability, and thermal resistance are ...
Natural isoforms of the Photosystem II D1 subunit differ in photoassembly efficiency of the water-oxidizing complex
Oxygenic photosynthesis efficiency at increasing solar flux is limited by light-induced damage (photoinhibition) of Photosystem II (PSII), primarily targeting the D1 reaction center subunit. Some cyanobacteria contain two ...
Polymeric nanoparticles loaded with the 3,5,3'-triiodothyroacetic acid (Triac), a thyroid hormone: factorial design, characterization, and release kinetics
(Dove MedicalMacclesfield, 2012-07)
This present investigation deals with the development and optimization of polymeric nanoparticle systems loaded with 3,5,3′-triiodothyroacetic acid (Triac). A '2 POT. 11-6' fractional factorial design and another '2 POT. ...
Improving the mathematical formulation for the detailed scheduling of refined products pipelines by accounting for flow rate dependent pumping costs
(Nara Medianeira Stefano, 2013-10)
This work presents a continuous-time mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) formulation to find the best detailed schedule for single-source multi-product pipelines, minimizing the total operating costs. By knowing the ...
Package Size Decisions
We describe a model examining how a firm might choose the package size and price for a product that deteriorates over time. Our model considers four factors: (1) the usable life of the product, (2) the rates at which ...
Reorganization energy for hole and electron transfer of poly(3-hexylthiophene) derivatives
Poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) is a common material used as electron donor element in active layers of organic solar cells. Previous studies have shown that is possible to improve the electronic properties of the P3HT through ...
Structural and functional insights into the conductive pili of Geobacter sulfurreducens revealed in molecular dynamics simulations
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-09-14)
Geobacter sulfurreducens (GS) electronically connects with extracellular electron acceptors using conductive protein filaments or pili. To gain insights into their role as biological nanowires, we investigated the structural ...
