Annual statistics concerning road accidents indicate the social issue (number of people killed in accidents) as well as economic issue (financial loss). This article deals with the impact of switching on the passing lights and the colour of the vehicle on the range of visibility. The research data presented in this article are to provoke the discussion whether it is arguable to use the passing lights during the day instead of day lights.

The article presents the idea of the technical (patent application) solution permitting the recovery of the waste-heat from household equipment as washing machines, dishwashers, leading to the electric energy saving on level approx. 3% in relation to of each customer. Introduced also analyses of the influence of this type of the solution on the function of the network and connected with this the change of the level of losses in distributive networks. Described analyses indicate the legitimacy of initiating of this type of devices to the modern equipment new-constructed apartment buildings.

The article describes modelling of pulverized coal combustion with a single tangential burner for Model Predictive Control. Such algorithm supports nonlinear and multidimensional process description and easy constraints adding, which stands the advantage of predictive control. Actual information about the burning process allows to foresee and control the such complex process, considering strict NOx czy COx radicals emission rules.

Forecasting methods used up to now in case of very short-term prediction of power generated in wind plants and photovoltaic plants have been first characterized in the paper. Then concept of the system using fuzzy logic for very short-term forecasting of power generated in renewable energy sources has been described. At the end of the paper summary of the described issues and directions for further scientific works in the considered subject range have been presented. (Very short-term forecasting of power generated in renewable energy sources with the use of fuzzy logic).

The paper deals with the computation of distribution network components reliability parameters. Knowledge of the component reliability parameters in power networks is necessary for the reliability computation and also for reliability-centered maintenance system. Component reliability parameters are possible to retrieve only with accurate databases of distribution companies. Such a database includes records of outages and interruptions in power networks. It is impossible to retrieve reliability parameters from this data in a direct way because of heterogeneity. In this paper, we introduce some results of databases calculations. We apply this framework for the retrieving of parameters from outage data in the Czech and Slovak republics. There are also actual results.
