Fariba Heidarpour; Ghazanfar shahgholian

Volume 5, Issue 1 , Winter 2018, Pages 1-7

http://dx.doi.org/10.30501/jree.2018.88584

Abstract
  The sustainability of hydraulic turbines was one of the most important issues considered by electrical energy provider experts. Increased electromechanical oscillation damping is one of the key issues in the turbines sustainability. Electromechanical oscillations, if not quickly damp, can threaten the ...  Read More

5. Estimation and Modeling of Biogas Production in Municipal Landfill

Alireza Rastikerdar

Volume 5, Issue 1 , Winter 2018, Pages 43-50

http://dx.doi.org/10.30501/jree.2018.88511

Abstract
  The municipal solid waste in Landfill is transformed into landfill gas during a biochemical conversion process called bio-degradation. Gas release from landfills has potentially different environmental effects; therefore, assessing and forecasting the rate of production and release of gas from landfill ...  Read More

6. Global Solar Radiation Prediction for Makurdi, Nigeria Using Feed Forward Backward Propagation Neural Network

Aondoyila Kuhe; Victor Terhemba Achirgbenda; Mascot Agada

Volume 5, Issue 1 , Winter 2018, Pages 51-55

http://dx.doi.org/10.30501/jree.2018.88512

Abstract
  The optimum design of solar energy systems strongly depends on the accuracy of  solar radiation data. However, the availability of accurate solar radiation data is undermined by the high cost of measuring equipment or non-functional ones. This study developed a feed-forward backpropagation artificial ...  Read More
