Simulation of Economical Performance of Isolated Rural Mini-Grids

Sendegeya, Al-Mas January 2009 (has links)
Prior knowledge about the possible characteristics of demand and supply is vital in the planning and operation of economically sustainable isolated rural power systems. System modelling and simulation is one of the tools that can be used in planning and assessing the performance of these systems. This thesis is presenting a Monte Carlo simulation methodology for modelling, simulating and analysing the performance of isolated rural electricity markets applicable in developing countries. The definitions of possible power system operators managing these markets are introduced based on different economic objectives of operating the systems. The two system operators considered in the thesis are: altruistic and profit maximising operators. The concept used to define types of isolated rural electricity markets is combining the definitions of operators and the possible combinations of power supply options (purely thermal or hybrid system). It is anticipated that the rural electricity markets under consideration comprise of uncertainties in demand and supply (both demand and generation are modelled as random variables from assumed or estimated probability distributions). Demand is price sensitive and modelled as a product of two random variables, relative demand and peak demand. The price sensitivity of demand is shown by representing peak demand using an economic price-demand function. The parameters (price sensitivity and demand factor) of this function are modelled as random variables which reflect the randomness of consumers’ preferences. The simulation algorithm is based on the theory of correlated sampling, in order to compare the performance of systems under different operators. The thesis introduces the concept of nested Monte Carlo simulation to be able manage the simulation of different operators subjected to the same market conditions. The performance of electricity markets is assessed by analysing three parameters (tariffs, profit and reliability), which are random variables presented using probability distributions in form of duration curves. The methodology is tested on a theoretical case study system using load data obtained from a rural community in Africa.  The case study illustrates how to use the model, preparation of the input variables and how to use the output to estimate and assess the possible performance of isolated rural power systems under different power system operators. It is anticipated that the proposed methodology can be used by researchers, planners and academia as a tool for planning, estimating and assessing the performance of rural power systems in isolated areas of developing countries

Development of a Monte Carlo Simulation Model for Varian ProBeam Compact Single-Room Proton Therapy System using GEANT4

Unknown Date (has links)
Proton therapy with pencil beam scanning technique is a novel technique to treat cancer patients due to its unique biophysical properties. However, a small error in dose calculation may lead towards undesired greater uncertainties in planed doses. This project aims to create a simulation model of Varian ProBeam Compact using the GEANT4 Monte Carlo simulation tool kit. Experimental data from the first clinical ProBeam Compact system at South Florida Proton Therapy Institute was used to validate the simulation model. A comparison was made between the experimental and simulated Integrated Depth-Dose curves using a 2%/2mm gamma index test with 100% of points passing. The beam spot standard deviation sizes (s!) were compared using percent deviation. All simulated s! matched the experimental s! within 2.5%, except 70 and 80 MeV. The model can be used to develop a more comprehensive model as an independent dose verification tool and further investigate dose distribution. / Includes bibliography. / Thesis (M.S.)--Florida Atlantic University, 2020. / FAU Electronic Theses and Dissertations Collection

Chemical Contaminants in Drinking Water: An Integrated Exposure Analysis

Khanal, Rajesh 26 May 1999 (has links)
The objective of this research is to develop an integrated exposure model, which performs uncertainty analysis of exposure to the entire range of chemical contaminants in drinking water via inhalation, ingestion and dermal sorption. The study is focused on a residential environment. The various water devices considered are shower, bath, bathroom, kitchen faucet, washing machine and the dishwasher. All devices impact inhalation exposure, while showering, bathing and washing hands are considered in the analysis of dermal exposure. A set of transient mass balance equations are solved numerically to predict the concentration profiles of a chemical contaminant for three different compartments in a house (shower, bathroom and main house). Inhalation exposure is computed by combining this concentration profile with the occupancy and activity patterns of a specific individual. Mathematical models of dermal penetration, which account for steady and non-steady state analysis, are used to estimate exposure via dermal absorption. Mass transfer coefficients are used to compute the fraction of contaminant remaining in water at the time of ingestion before estimating ingestion exposure. Three chemical contaminant in water: chloroform, chromium and methyl parathion are considered for detailed analysis. These contaminants cover a wide range in chemical properties. The magnitude of overall exposure and comparison of the relative contribution of individual exposure pathways for each contaminant is evaluated. The major pathway of exposure for chloroform is inhalation, which accounts for 2/3rd of the total exposure. Dermal absorption and ingestion exposures contribute almost equally to the remaining 1/3rd of total exposure for chloroform. Ingestion accounts for about 60% of total exposure for methyl parathion and the remaining 40% of exposure is via dermal sorption. Nearly all of the total exposure (98%) for chromium is via the ingestion pathway. / Master of Science
