    Wind power generation differs from conventional thermal generation due to the stochastic nature of wind. Thus wind power forecasting plays a key role in dealing with the challenges of balancing supply and demand in any ...
  • Hanrahan, Brian Leif; Lightbody, Gordon; Staudt, Lawrence; Leahy, Paul G. (Elsevier, 2014-03)
    The combination of wind generation and combined heat and power (CHP) on an industrial site brings significant design and operational challenges. The stochastic nature of wind power affects the flows of electricity imported ...

M.; Maenhaut, W.; Jones, R.; Venables, Dean S.; Sodeau, John R.; Kulmala, M.; Kalberer, M. (Copernicus Publications, 2013-11)
    Numerous laboratory experiments have been performed in an attempt to mimic atmospheric secondary organic aerosol (SOA) formation. However, it is still unclear how close the aerosol particles generated in laboratory experiments ...
  • Browne, James D. (University College Cork, 2014)
    Anaerobic digestion (AD) of biodegradable waste is an environmentally and economically sustainable solution which incorporates waste treatment and energy recovery. The organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW), ...
