    Developing the Model of Interconnected Power Grid and Evaluating the Competition of Distributed Systems According to Economical and Environmental Criteria

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Roostaazad, Sajad (Author) ; Saboohi, Yadollah (Supervisor)
    This report models the electricity supply network by means of the ESM software. In this model, the distribution company obtains its final users’ electricity demand from three sources: distributed generation plants owned by private sector, distributed generation plants owned by the distribution company and buying from electricity market (Over distribution network). According to the model, the optimum point of operating the network is a point with maximum profit, minimum waste and environmental effects. The optimum point of supply minimizes the network wastes to an optimum extent. In this model, the distribution company can supply the extra electricity to the electricity market, provided that... 

    Optimal Design of Induction MHD Generator for Electrical Power Generation from Exhaust of the Gas Turbine Power Plants

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Barzegar, Iran (Author) ; Boroushaki, Mehrdad (Supervisor)
    Today, due to increasing electricity consumption and demand, the use of conventional systems such as thermal, hydro and nuclear power plants is not enough to convert energy. Over the past century, scientists have sought to discover new technologies for exploiting different forms of energy and converting them into high-efficiency electrical energy. One of these ways is to use the phenomenon of magnetohydrodynamics (magnetic fluid dynamics) to convert thermal energy directly into electrical energy. Magnetohydrodynamics is a theoretical field that studies the dynamics of fluids with electrical conductivity. Induction magneto-hydrodynamic generators use ionized hot plasma (a quasi-neutral gas of...
