Thermal intermittent drying of apples and its effects on energy consumption
This study investigated thermal intermittence in apple drying, conducted in two stages, and its effect on energy consumption, drying kinetics, color and chlorogenic acid retention. The energy consumption was measured using ...
Monitoring energy efficiency in Latin America
Practical comparisons among electronic energy meters, a precision energy meter and IEEE1459 for reactive energy measurements, under unbalanced and non-sinusoidal conditions
This paper presents a practical experimentation for comparing reactive/non-active energy measures, considering three-phase four-wire non-sinusoidal and unbalanced circuits, involving five different commercial electronic ...
Modeling of hydraulic and energy efficiency indicators for water supply systems
(Elsevier B.V., 2015-08-01)
The present work approaches the necessity of the hydraulic and energetic efficiency indicator development for the management and decision making of water supply systems (WSSs) that can enable the comparison between the ...
Energy use in cropping systems: A regional long-term exploratory analysis of energy allocation and efficiency in the Inland Pampa (Argentina)
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2012-08)
As agricultural system comprises natural processes that are ruled by thermodynamics, the energy utilization is well suited for assessing the sustainability in the management of natural resources. The goals of this paper ...
Energy and water policies in Chile, two different endings with implications in the water-energy nexus
Energy and water have faced important levels of conflicts in the last 20–25 years in Chile. However, the way that they have been politically addressed in the last decade differs. These differences emerge from how these ...
Brazilian sugarcane bagasse: Energy and non-energy consumption
(Pergamon-elsevier Science LtdOxfordInglaterra, 2012)
On energy transfer between vibrating systems under linear and nonlinear interactions
The present study deals with energy transfer in a dissipative mechanical system. Numerical results are given by considering two different potentials and periodical excitation. Specifically, we show energy transfer from ...
Energy management strategy based on receding horizon for a power hybrid system
This paper presents an energy management strategy to operate a hybrid power system with renewable sources (wind and solar), batteries, and polymeric electrolyte membrane fuel cells. The fuel cells are fed with hydrogen ...
Energy efficiency in buildings: analysis of scientific literature and identification of data analysis techniques from a bibliometric study
This study uses bibliometrics methods to analyze the specialized literature of energy efficiency in buildings, including the Scopus database during the period of time ranging from 1980 to 2016, to identify the most relevant ...
