Electricity in the American economy : agent of technological progress by Sam H Schurr( )

5 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Electricity has penetrated deeply into virtually every aspect of American life, be it in industry, the home, or in the rapidly growing commercial and service sectors. This book documents and analyzes the existence of a strong, and growing, synergy between technological progress and the use of electrified production techniques in the United States during the twentieth century. The authors use two types of information in their work: case studies of the ways in which technological progress in particular industries and economic sectors has depended upon the adoption of electrified methods of production and aggregative long-term national economic statistics that measure the changing relationship over time between increases in the use of electricity and other factor inputs and the growth in industrial productivity. Eleven of the book's thirteen chapters cover the case studies, while the remaining two chapters and the statistical appendix contain the broad quantitative findings and supporting data.''In their analysis, the authors address three inter-related questions from a long-term evolutionary perspective: Why has electricity's share of total energy risen so sharply over the years? How has this rise been related to productivity growth? and Why has the rise in electricity led to long-term improvements in the efficiency of overall energy use despite the thermal energy losses sustained when fuels are converted into electricity? The answer to these questions, they contend, is the technological progress represented by electrified production technologies, and in the new ways of organizing production that are now possible. The different ways in which electrical energy has been put to work, and with what results, are examined in the various case studies presented, and further documented in the aggregative statistical analysis. This study reveals the important role that the electrification of production operations has played in supporting productivity growth in manufacturing and other economic sectors in the past, and the important part that it can continue to play in the future. This book will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers; those interested in productivity issues, energy policy, electricity in general, historians of technology, economic historians, and those interested in current technological issues. It will be a necessary acquisition for college and university libraries, as well as those individuals interested in energy, technology, economic growth, history, and the interfaces among them

Applied chaos( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its inception, the science of chaos has caused excitement and activity in theoretical circles as far apart as physics and economics, and in disciplines ranging from mathematics to ecology. Its central revelation - that even a simple deterministic system can yield complex behavior such as chaos - suggests a glimmer of hope that the salient features of complex problems might be captured, even understood, in terms of simple models and the paradigm of chaos." "Conventional analysis can explain numerous phenomena. Yet many dynamic systems remain mysteries to which chaos may hold a crucial key. To explore this possibility in the context of applications, the Electric Power Research Institute recently sponsored the International Workshop on Applications of Chaos. This fascinating book is the result." "At EPRI's invitation, a group of physicists, chemists, mathematicians, engineers of every variety, as well as physiologists, computer scientists, and others came together from all over the globe to speak about and discuss the applications of chaos. The twenty papers presented included such topics as Global Integrity in Engineering Dynamics, Atmospheric Flight Dynamics and Chaos, New Applications of Chaos in Chemical Engineering, Controlling the Dynamics of Chaotic Convective Flows, Real-Time Identification of Flame Dynamics, and Applications of Chaos to Physiology and Medicine." "The scope of their discussion illustrates both the interdisciplinary nature of chaotic dynamics and the wide variety of applications, from engineering to cardiology. It is also clear from the results that chaotic dynamics is pervasive and will be of increasing importance in many areas of applied science and technology. Applied Chaos represents the next generation of technology in its infancy, a hint of the enormous possibilities that might be found in the practical applications of this new science."--Jacket

Updating interconnection screens for PV system integration( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This white paper evaluates the origins and usefulness of the capacity penetration screen, offer short-term solutions which could effectively allow fast-track interconnection to many PV system applications, and considers longer-term solutions for increasing PV deployment levels in a safe and reliable manner while reducing or eliminating the emphasis on the penetration screen. Short-term and longer-term alternatives approaches are offered as examples; however, specific modifications to screening procedures should be discussed with stakeholders and must ultimately be adopted by state and federal regulatory bodies
Solar-augment potential of U.S. fossil-fired power plants( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems utilize solar thermal energy for the generation of electric power. This attribute makes it relatively easy to integrate CSP systems with fossil-fired power plants. The "solar-augment" of fossil power plants offers a lower cost and lower risk alternative to stand-alone solar plant construction. This study ranked the potential to add solar thermal energy to coal-fired and natural gas combined cycle (NGCC) plants found throughout 16 states in the southeast and southwest United States. Each generating unit was ranked in six categories to create an overall score ranging from Excellent to Not Considered. Separate analysis was performed for parabolic trough and power tower technologies due to the difference in the steam temperatures that each can generate. The study found a potential for over 11 GWe of parabolic trough and over 21 GWe of power tower capacity. Power towers offer more capacity and higher quality integration due to the greater steam temperatures that can be achieved. The best sites were in the sunny southwest, but all states had at least one site that ranked Good for augmentation
