Tolani Maritime Institute also known as TMI is a maritime college in Induri, Pune, India which was established in 1998. It has about 1,500 students in its campus based and distance learning programmes. It was set up by The Tolani Group, a ship-owning and ship management company, which perceived a need for India to produce increasing numbers of well-educated marine officers. Wikipedia.

Fluid Dynamics and Materials Processing

A two-dimensional numerical model has been developed to investigate the phase-change of ice near 4 °C in a rectangular cavity. The enthalpyporosity model is reformulated in terms of conservation equations of mass, momentum and heat to account for the evolution the solid/liquid interface. Constant and time-dependent (with sinusoidal law) temperature boundary conditions are considered. Results confirm the possibility to control the typical dynamics of ice melting in a square cavity near the density inversion point by means of a wall temperature which varies in time (with given amplitude and frequency). © 2012 Tech Science Press.

In this paper a physical model is built to investigate the non-isothermal freezing kinetic in ice slurry systems. The global Nakamura-type kinetics is adopted to describe the nucleation rate during the freezing process. A genetic algorithm is used to determine the nucleation probability of ice slurry. The finite difference method is utilized to solve the heat transfer problem, and the source term method is employed to handle the absorbed latent heat. An experimental example of a cylindrical cell is used to test this model. From a comparison with the experimental result, the computed cooling curve is found to be very close to the experimental one. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd and IIR. All rights reserved. Source

Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews

The growth potential of any state is linked with infrastructure and electricity infrastructure is the most important parameter for economic growth. Maharashtra, a prominent state in India consumes 12 per cent of India's electricity. Maharashtra's power sector is facing the electricity deficit and shortage since early 2005. On the other hand, industrial and service sectors are rising in the state. The present paper discusses electricity situational analysis of the state. Electricity demand analysis has been presented and comparison of state electricity demand vis-à-vis Mumbai's demand (state capital) has been carried out for two years. Variation for monthly average demand for two years and load shedding have also been analyzed. Power supply situation analysis and analysis of major power suppliers have been carried out. The State Load Distribution Center data is used to depict the load variation for a typical day. Interventions needed to sustainably meet the growing demands are also discussed. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Energy Policy

Forecasting of electricity demand has assumed a lot of importance to provide sustainable solutions to the electricity problems. LEAP has been used to forecast electricity demand for the target year 2030, for the state of Maharashtra (India). Holt's exponential smoothing method has been used to arrive at suitable growth rates. Probable projections have been generated using uniform gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate and different values of elasticity of demands. Three scenarios have been generated which include Business as Usual (BAU), Energy Conservation (EC) and Renewable Energy (REN). Subsequent analysis on the basis of energy, environmental influence and cost has been done. In the target year 2030, the projected electricity demand for BAU and REN has increased by 107.3 per cent over the base year 2012 and EC electricity demand has grown by 54.3 per cent. The estimated values of green house gas (GHG) for BAU and EC, in the year 2030, are 245.2 per cent and 152.4 per cent more than the base year and for REN it is 46.2 per cent less. Sensitivity analysis has been performed to study the effect on the total cost of scenarios. Policy implications in view of the results obtained are also discussed. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. Source

This paper presents a novel approach for designing a completely automatic Oil Discharge Monitoring and Control System (ODMCS) for the discharge of oily mixtures/effluents from cargo area and slop tank of oil tankers. The Global Positioning System (GPS) and modified World Vector Shorelines (WVS) data are used for the development of a system, which completely automates the working of ODMCS to comply with Marine Pollution (MARPOL) regulations. The system level hardware and software design for the same is discussed. An animated simulator for the completely automatic ODMCS is developed. The developed system may also be used as ODMCS emulator when main ODMCS fails. The results obtained by applying the test inputs to such a system have been presented and verified against the requirements of MARPOL regulations. © 2010: The Royal Institution of Naval Architects.
