By Edgar A. DeMeo, Peter Steitz (auth.), Karl W. Böer (eds.)

In quantity 6 of the Advances in solar power we've particularly detailed for a overview the wealthy event of the facility Utilities. Their hands-on event in a wide number of capability to hire solar power conversion and to guage the technical and inexpensive feasibilities is of significant value to their destiny use. In designing the lay-out for this quantity, we needed to assemble all suitable info, together with good fortune and screw ups and desired to emphasize the teachings realized from every one kind of test. The book of this kind of evaluate now has the benefit of a settled adventure within the first section of sunlight involvement of the application with a large number of info analyzed. we're convinced that this knowledge might be of serious worth to direct the long run improvement of the solar power combine inside this undefined. we've got extra to this set of reports 3 articles which take care of the main promising high-technology a part of solar power conversion utilizing completely sturdy kingdom units: sun cells. the advance during the last twenty years from slightly 10% to now in way over 30% conversion potency is breathtaking. furthermore, the feasibility of monetary midrange effective thin-film expertise holds the promise of establishing huge sc ale markets within the close to destiny. This box will input head-on pageant for big strength iteration with extra traditional technology.

Research in the Schizophrenic Disorders: The Stanley R. Dean Award Lectures Vol. II

Within the autumn of 1957, Stanley R. Dean proposed the production of a founda­ tion on schizophrenia to a gaggle of associates. the aim was once to convey the sickness of schizophrenia sooner than the public's realization and out of the shameful anonymity during which it used to be buried. Stanley Dean well-known the foremost public wellbeing and fitness value of this disorder and was firm to have an effect on it in the course of his lifetime.

Placental Vascularization and Blood Flow: Basic Research and Clinical Applications

The optimum functionality of the placenta and hence fetal health mostly will depend on the integrity of either the fetal and maternal circulations of the placenta. excessive uncomplicated learn interested by placental vascularization and blood circulation has been played for the earlier 30 years, starting with the classical morphological descriptions of the placental vessels by way of Boe (1953) and humanities (1961), in addition to with the radioangiographic experiences of maternal placental stream within the human by means of Borell (1958) and within the rhesus monkey through Ramsey (1962).

Eleclric Utility Industry's Aclivities developed new products in response to theil' utility customers' demands and their own perceptions of market needs. The formation of EPRI in 1972, as an outgrowth of the Edison Electric Institute's (EEl's) Research Committee, provided electric utilities with an improved mechanism for cooperation in the pursuit of research and development. Prior to the formation of EPRI, research was conducted mainly by companies individually, by two or more companies working together, or through an industry association committee such as the EEl's Research Committee.

Each proposed effort was to begin with a DOE-funded conceptual design study, including the preparation of cost estimates and economic value analyses. DOE funded studies were performed on the following utility systems: • • • • • • • Arizona Public Service Company EI Paso Electric Company Public Service Company of Oklahoma Sierra Pacific Power Company Southwestern Public Service Company Texas Electric Service Company West Texas Vtilities Company The studies were performed by different contractors, each using different economic evaluation techniques.

Since that time, the primary emphasis of utilities has been on meeting the growing demand for electricity of customers, demand which often grew so rapidly that it strained the ability of utilities to install sufficient capacity to keep the lights on. Innovations were made to satisfy customer demands, improve reliability and lower costs. These innovations resulted in the evolution of our modern power systems. However, despite the many technological advances achieved by the electric utility industry, electric utilities cannot be characterized as research and development organizations.
