Paper Title:

Removal of Some Hazardous Dyes by Photodegradtion in Presence of Yttrium Oxide

Abstract: The photodegradation of Rhodamine B and Congo red dye solutions were studied in presence of yttrium oxide. The rate constant of the photodegradation process was calculated. The effects of pH values, sun light, UV lamps, the dye concentration, and the dose of Y2O3 on the rate of photodegradation were studied. Also the kinetic parameters by using Longmireequation were calculated. The carbon oxygen demand (COD) and the total organic carbon (TOC) were determined. The analysis of the obtained results indicate that photodegradation of the both dyes depend on the structure of the dyes, the function groups of the dyes, the pH value of the media, the dose of the catalyst and the concentration of the dyes.

Paper Title:

A Novel Multilevel Inverter based Micro Grid and ITS Co-Ordination Control

Abstract:  This thesis first proposes a hybrid ac/dc micro-grid and its coordination control for reducing the processes of multiple conversions in an individual ac or dc grid. Renewable energy based distributed generators (DGs) play a dominant role in electricity production, with the increase in the global warming. Distributed generation based on wind, solar energy, biomass, mini-hydro along with use of fuel cells and micro- turbines will give significant momentum in near future. Advantages like environmental friendliness, expandability and flexibility have made distributed generation, powered by various renewable and nonconventional micro-sources. The micro-grid concept introduces the reduction of multiple reverse conversions in an individual AC or DC grid and also facilitates connections to variable renewable AC and DC sources and loads to power systems. The interconnection of DGs to the utility/grid through power electronic converters has risen concerned about safe operation and protection of equipment’s. To the customer the micro-grid can be designed to meet their special requirements. In the present work the performance of hybrid AC/DC micro-grid system is analyzed in the grid tied mode. Here photovoltaic system, wind turbine generator and battery are used for the development of Micro- grid. A small hybrid grid has been modeled and simulated using the Simulink in the MATLAB. The simulation results show that the system can maintain stable operation under the proposed coordination control schemes.

Brief Review on Thermal Properties of Graphene-Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites

Abstract: In this paper we report an obvious review of the thermal properties of graphene and aluminium sheet reinforced with graphene layer. Graphene is one of very few materials with exceptionally high thermal conductivity due to the scattering of phonons. The experimental results revealed that the thermal conductivity of graphene is very high when compared to carbon nanotubes (CNTs). To increase the thermal properties of aluminium, graphene can be used as reinforcement in producing metal matrix composites. The reported results revealed that the fabricated composites showed enhanced thermal conductivity as compared with the various metal matrix composites like aluminium, copper, beryllium, silver and their alloys. The thermal conductivity of graphene reinforced aluminium increased from 324 W/mK to 783W/mK and has the potential to provide the sufficient thermal conductivity for food drying process and can be used in heat exchangers.

Paper Title:

Efficient Feature Selection by using Global Redundancy Minimization and Constraint Score

Abstract: A central problem in automatic learning is the identification of a representative set of characteristics from which to construct a classification model for a particular task. This thesis deals with the problem of the selection of characteristics for automatic learning by a correlation - based approach. The central assumption is that good sets of characteristics contain characteristics that are highly correlated with the class but not correlated with each other. A formula for evaluating characteristics, based on ideas derived from test theory, provides an operational definition of this hypothesis. CFS (Correlation based Feature Selection) is an algorithm that couples this evaluation formula with an appropriate correlation measure and a heuristic search strategy. Other experiments compared the CFS to a wrapper - a well-known approach to feature selection that uses the target learning algorithm to evaluate sets of features. In many cases CFS has given results comparable to the envelope, and in general, surpassed the envelope on small sets of data. CFS runs much faster than the wrapper, enabling it to extend to larger sets of data.
