In the present research thermal performance of earth air tunnel heat exchanger (EATHE) coupled with a solar air heating duct has been experimentally evaluated for arid climate of Ajmer city of northwestern India, during winter season. An attempt has been made to enhance the heating capacity of EATHE system by coupling it with a solar air heating duct at the exit end. Results show that the air which comes out of coupled EATHE system is relatively hotter than the air supplied by the stand alone EATHE system. It was found that the heating capacity of EATHE system got increased by 1217.625-1280.753 kWh when it was coupled with solar air heating duct with a substantial increase in room temperature by 1.1-3.5 °C. The COP of the system also increased up to 4.57 when assisted with solar air heating duct. Therefore, the heating capacity of EATHE can be significantly increased by coupling it with solar air heating duct. © 2014 Elsevier B.V. Source

We present Compton profiles and Mulliken population (MP) data on charge re-organization of tungsten trioxide using pseudopotential approach within linear combination of atomic orbitals (LCAOs). Different exchange and correlation potentials to density functional theory (DFT) as embodied in the LCAO calculations have been validated using the first ever Compton profile measurement employing 20 Ci 137Cs source. The MP data have shown transfer of electrons from W sites which are found to be unevenly distributed among the non-equivalent six O atoms. The computed Compton profiles are found to be in reasonable agreement with the experimental data. Going beyond the LCAO calculations, energy bands, density of states (DOSs) and band gap are also reported using full potential augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method with DFT scheme. The FP-LAPW based partial and total DOS have also been discussed in terms of the MP data. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Source

The present study comprises determination of stability constant and the thermodynamics of interaction of transition metal ion Mn(II) with antibiotics Ciprofloxacin. The formation of 1:1 and 1:2 metal ligand complexes are found to be formed in 50 %( v/v) methanol - water system. The stability constant values for metal-ligand system compared at three temperetures, it is found that value of stability constant decreases with increasing temperature. This is in agreement with the conclusion of Pitzer1. Source

A robust fuzzy logic power system stabilizer (FLPSS) based on evolution and learning is proposed in this paper. A hybrid algorithm that combines learning and evolution is developed whereby each one complements other's strength. Parameters of FLPSS are encoded in chromosome (individual) of genetic algorithm (GA) population. Population of FLPSS in GA learns to stabilize electromechanical oscillations in power system at an operating point, as the best fitness becomes large steady value during successive generations. Operating region of FLPSS is enlarged by learning more operating points over the operating domain. Best FLPSS drawn from last generation is saved as designed FLPSS. Effectiveness of the proposed method is validated on a single machine infinite bus (SMIB) power system. Promising optimal stabilizing performance with designed FLPSS for considered power system is obtained at wide range of operating points. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

We present the first ever Compton profile measurement of WO2 using a 20 Ci 137Cs γ-ray source. The experimental data have been used to test different approximations of density functional theory in linear combination of atomic orbitals (LCAO) scheme. It is found that theoretical Compton profile deduced using generalized gradient approximation (GGA) gives a better agreement than local density approximation and second order GGA. The computed energy bands, density of states and Mulliken[U+05F3]s populations (MP) data confirm a metal-like behavior of WO2. The electronic properties calculated using LCAO approach are also compared with those obtained using full potential linearized augmented plane wave method. The nature of bonding in WO2 is also compared with isoelectronic WX2 (X=S, Se) compounds in terms of equal-valence-electron-density profiles and MP data, which suggest an increase in ionic character in the order WSe2→WS2→WO2. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
