POWER SYSTEM STABILITY IMPROVEMENT OF MULTI MACHINE SYSTEM BY USING STATCOM [pp 01-04]

Rajotia Prashant, Dr. Masand Deepika
Abstract – In this paper power system stability improvement of multi machine system by using STATCOM is investigated. MATLAB simulation indicates STATCOM improves transient stability of a system and compensate reactive power in steady state .transient stability improvement of multi machine power system at different fault condition is investigates in this work. We used 9 bus western systems co-coordinating council (WSCC) multi machine power system for simulation.


CORRELATION FOR PREDICTION OF SWELLING PRESSURE USING DIFFERENTIAL FREE SWELL AND PLASTICITY INDEX  [pp 05-08] 

Kushwaha Shweta, Yadav R.K.

Abstract – Expansive soil have tendency to change significantly in volume with variation in water content. The volume change in such soils causes considerable damage in structures that come into their contact. For safe and economic design of structures to be constructed in expansive soils study of swelling properties is an important prerequisite. Assessing Swelling Pressure of any soil is a time consuming and expensive job involving complicated test procedures in comparison to determining index properties. An attempt is made to establish a correlation among Differential Free Swell, Plasticity Index and Swelling Pressure to obtain an approximate value of Swelling Pressure in short time. In present study six types of soil (having different index properties) were collected from different areas of Jabalpur district (MP). The method uses single variable and multiple variable regression analysis of Microsoft excel.


A STUDY OF CORRELATION BETWEEN SWELLING PRESSURE AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF SOME SOILS [pp 09-12] 

Kushwaha Shweta, Yadav R.K.

Abstract – For safe and economic design of structures to be constructed in expansive soils study of swelling properties is an important prerequisite. The volume change in swelling soils are the cause of many problems in structures that come into their contact. The laboratory test method for finding swelling pressure of any soil is time consuming and expensive. The laboratory test for the determination of consistency limits and differential free swell are relatively easy and consume less time.


PERFORMANCE OF GRID INTEGRATED WIND ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEM: AN INVESTIGATION [pp 13-19]

Dayal Surabhi, Gautam Rishabh

Abstract – Increased awareness towards environmental concern has led towards the efforts made to reduce harmful effects of conventional means of electricity generation on environment and to generate electricity from the renewable energy sources like wind and solar. Generation of electricity from…


Solar Air Heater and Artificial Roughness –  A Review [20-27]

Sharma Rupali, Dr. Baghel Ashwini

Abstract- The heat is transferred between air and the absorber plate in a solar air heater.  In general, the thermal performance of a solar air heater is low because of poor heat transfer between the absorber plate and air. It can probably be improved by enhancement of heat transfer….
