Volume 3, Issue 3 , Summer 2016, Pages 1-10

http://dx.doi.org/10.30501/jree.2016.70087

Abstract
  Switchgrass is known as one of the best second-generation lignocellulosic biomasses for bioethanol production. Designing efficient switchgrass-based bioethanol supply chain (SBSC) is an essential requirement for commercializing the bioethanol production from switchgrass. This paper presents a mixed integer ...  Read More

2. Modelling and Simulation of Low-Head Hydro Turbine for Small Signal Stability Analysis in Power System

Ghazanfar Shahgholian

Volume 3, Issue 3 , Summer 2016, Pages 11-20

http://dx.doi.org/10.30501/jree.2016.70088

Abstract
  The hydro turbine dynamics have a considerable influence on the dynamic stability of power system. In the study of dynamic stability, the system is modeled by the linear differential equations (small  signal analysis). Small signal stability of power systems is needed in all conditions and ...  Read More

http://dx.doi.org/10.30501/jree.2016.70090

Abstract
  In this paper, a solar based hydrogen production in the city of Tehran, the capital of Iran is simulated and the cost of produced hydrogen is evaluated. Local solar power profile is obtained using TRNSYS software for a typical parking station in Tehran. The generated electricity is used to supply power ...  Read More

5. Passive Energy Air-to-Water Heat Pipe Based Heat Exchanger and its Potential of Air Pre-cooling in Air Conditioning Systems for Iran Climate

Mohammad Ahmadzadehtalatapeh

Volume 3, Issue 3 , Summer 2016, Pages 44-52

http://dx.doi.org/10.30501/jree.2016.70091

Abstract
  Air pre-cooling equipment is normally being employed in air-conditioning systems for pre-cooling the ambient outdoor air to enhance the air-conditioning systems performance. In this study, the potential of a passive water-to-air heat pipe based heat exchanger (HPHEX) for air pre-cooling purpose in air-conditioning ...  Read More

7. Estimation of Global Solar Irradiance Using a Novel combination of Ant Colony Optimization and Empirical Models

Afshin Lashkar Ara; rahil hosseini; Hajar Bagheri Tolabi

Volume 3, Issue 3 , Summer 2016, Pages 59-66

http://dx.doi.org/10.30501/jree.2016.70093

Abstract
  In this paper, a novel approach for the estimation of global solar irradiance is proposed based on a combination of empirical correlation and ant colony optimization. Empirical correlation has been used to estimate monthly average of daily global solar irradiance on a horizontal surface. The Ant Colony ...  Read More
