    Several factors contributed to the existence of large electric systems as we know them today, such as: the increase of the electric demand by the advancement of the industrial development, the appearance of electric equipment, and household devices and by the advancement in the engineering systems, just to mention a few of them. With all this, the third part of the World population still does not have access to the electricity service. The efforts that the small electric enterprises perform to carry the service up to the site where it is required, every day time becomes more expensive and less effective. Exhausted by the weight of a huge economic debt, many electric utilities of the developing countries find each time more difficult to obtain financing to extend the power lines. This situation becomes still more serious with the present privatization scheme of the electric utilities. Although new technologies are being developed to counteract the negative effects caused by the large electricity generation power plants, the society seems to begin to show preferences for more benign to the environment options. The scheme of distributed generation can be given in to modalities: By means of isolated systems in remote sites, where there is not access to the conventional services; and with systems interconnected with the electric network where this is available [Espanol] Varios factores contribuyeron a la aparicion de los grandes sistemas electricos como los conocemos hoy en dia, tales como: el crecimiento de la demanda electrica por el avance del desarrollo industrial, la aparicion de equipos electricos y aparatos electrodomesticos y por avances en la ingenieria de los sistemas, por mencionar algunos. Con todo ello, la tercera parte de la poblacion mundial no tiene aun acceso al servicio electrico. Los esfuerzos que realizan las companias electricas para llevar el servicio hasta donde se requiere, resultan cada vez mas costosos y menos efectivos. Agobiadas por el peso

    The planning of electricity generation systems considers several factors that must be taken into account in order to design systems that are economical, reliable and sustainable. For this purpose, the Financial Portfolio Theory is applicable to the energy portfolio or the diversification of electricity generation technologies, such as is the combined cycle, wind, thermoelectric and nuclear. This paper presents an application of the Portfolio Theory to the national energy system, based on the total generation costs for each technology, which allows determining the average variance portfolio and the respective share of each of the electricity generation technologies considered, obtaining a portfolio of electricity generation with the maximum possible return for the risk taken in the investments. This paper describes the basic aspects of the Portfolio Theory and its methodology, in which matrices are implemented for the solution of the resulting Lagrange system. (Author)

    This work has as purpose to diffuse in a general way the technology of the one modulate reactor of pebble bed. Because our country is in developing ways, the electric power demand goes in increase with that which it is presented the great challenge of satisfying this necessity, not only being in charge of the one fact per se, but also involving the environmental aspect and of security. Both factors are covered by the PBMR technology, which we approach in their basic aspects with the purpose that the public opinion knows it and was familiarized with this type of reactors that well could represent a solution for our growing electricity demand. We will treat this reactor visualizing it like part of a generation plant defining in first place to the itself reactor. We will see because that the system PBMR consists of 2 main sections: the reactor and the unit of energy conversion, highlighting that the principle of the PBMR reactor operation is based on the thermodynamic Brayton cycle cooled by helium and that, in turn, it transmits the energy in form of heat toward a gas turbine. In what concerns to the fuel, it peculiar design due to its spherical geometry is described, aspect that make to this reactor different from the traditional ones that use fuel rods. In fact in the fuel spheres of the PBMR it is where it resides great part of it inherent security since each particle of fuel, consistent in uranium dioxide, is lined one with coal and silicon carbide those which form an impenetrable barrier containing to the fuel and those radioactive products that result of the nuclear reactions. Such particles are encapsulated in graphite to form the sphere or 'pebble', of here born the name of this innovative technology. (Author)

    The latest studies performed by OECD and IAEA on the subject were analyzed in order to clarify the international context. Nuclear, gas and coal are compared. The general conclusion is that nuclear power is competitive for electricity generation considering new plants to be commissioned around year 2000. If the discount rate is 5% per annum it is considered the best option in most of the countries included in the studies. If 10% is chosen the levelized costs favour the gas option. In the Argentine case, the analysis of possible plants for the near future shows a clear advantage for the gas projects. This is mainly due to the low capital costs and low local gas prices. The possible evolution of this situation is considered: gas prices will most probably increase because they should approach the price of fuel oil or diesel oil which are used as substitutes in winter for electricity generation and the export projects to Chile and Brasil will also push prices up. The environmental aspects of the question and its influence on regulations and costs is a matter of speculation. Some countries have already penalized greenhouse gases emissions but it is not clear how and when this trend will affect local prices. (author). 4 refs., 6 tabs.

    Gasification experiments have been carried out with a atmospheric pressure down draft gasifier of a capacity of 250 kg/h of biomass. Biomass used have been almond shells and olive cut. Results obtained show a similar behaviour in gas composition with two biomass. A small fraction of the generated gas from the gasifier has been fed to a small generator of 4 kV A. The gas has been previously cleaned and dried by means of a scrubber and a condenser, to remove tar products. The generator has been operated with a great stability without any modification, and energy generated with gas from gasification are relatively close to the values obtained with conventional fuels such as gasoline or commercial butane.

    The A BWR reactor (Advanced Boiling Water Reactor) it was developed in a project group among the Company TEPCO, (Tokyo Electric Power Company), Hitachi, Toshiba and General Electric. The A BWR is the first nuclear reactor of the type BWR third generation that entered in commercial operation in the 90 Th decade. One of those main characteristics of the A BWR are that the system of external recirculation has been eliminated, that is to say, the pumps and external recirculation pipes have been replaced by 10 internal recirculation pumps mounted in the inferior part of the pressure vessel, for that external recirculation systems neither the use of jet pumps are not needed. Another important characteristic of the A BWR is the simplification of the activation of the safety systems. The simplifications in the design of the A BWR and the use of new technologies have reduced the quantity of equipment and the time of construction compared with the previous designs of BWRs. The construction project for the A BWR consists of a period of construction from 48 to 54 months, measured since that the first concrete structure is placed until that it enters in commercial operation, in accordance with the documents liberated by G E.

    Fuel cells, as totally clean power plants, have many applications in the industry in general, in the transport system, in the electricity generation for domestic consumption and in the communication systems, among others. When developing new forms of generation with renewable energy sources, it must be considered that petroleum will stop in being an available power resource. The interest in the study of the fuel cells has been increased in the last years because it is considered a solution to the supply of distributed energy problem. Therefore, already exist research institutions that are developing work on this technology. A generation of electrical energy system based on fuel cells is a nonlinear system where the control of the variables of the process, such as the temperature of the system and the pressurization of the reactants, are an important aspect for its proper operation, since it influences in the water balance and therefore in the global efficiency of the system. [Spanish] Las celdas de combustible, como fuente de energia totalmente limpia, tienen muchas aplicaciones en la industria en general: en el sistema de transporte, en la generacion de electricidad para consumo domestico y en los sistemas de comunicacion, entre otros. Al desarrollar nuevas formas de generacion con fuentes de energia renovables, se debe considerar que el petroleo dejara de ser un recurso energetico disponible. El interes en el estudio de las celdas de combustible se ha incrementado en los ultimos anos debido a que se le considera una solucion al problema de abasto de energia distribuida. Por lo tanto, ya existen instituciones de investigacion que estan desarrollando trabajos sobre esta tecnologia. Un sistema de generacion de energia electrica basado en celdas de combustible es un sistema no lineal en donde el control de las variables del proceso, tales como la temperatura del sistema y la presurizacion de los reactantes, es un aspecto importante para su buen funcionamiento, ya que

    literature, since in this one it is only mentioned that the dynamics of the voltage and frequency change, but it is not shown how. In base of the dynamic behavior of the GIAE a scheme of simple control is proposed to regulate the generator voltage with the minimum of necessary elements, which is translated into a reduced cost, greater reliability and in addition provides a satisfactory voltage regulation. The control strategy is simple but functional, which permits its implementation without major complications. Finally an analysis is realized of the harmonic distortion produced by the proposed control. [Spanish] Aunque solamente una parte de la potencia mini/micro hidraulica ha sido explorada en nuestro pais, este tipo de generacion de energia electrica puede ser considerada como una forma viable de generacion de electricidad, principalmente por lo que respecta a los aspectos ecologicos, economicos y sociales. El impacto que pueden tener estas plantas en las regiones en las que son instaladas es siempre positivo: reduccion de costo de la energia, derrama economica, y principalmente un bienestar social. La energia electrica es uno de los pilares para el desarrollo economico de un pais y proporciona una mejor calidad de vida. En la actualidad la investigacion y la tecnologia orientada a la operacion y control de las micro/mini plantas de generacion ha despertado el interes de muchos investigadores en diversos paises del mundo como China, la India, Canada, USA, por mencionar algunos. El generador de induccion juega un papel crucial en la utilizacion de estas tecnologias.

    This paper presents a mathematical modeling, simulation and design of a solar power system of a parabolic dish with an air-cooled Stirling engine of 2.7 kW. The model used for the solar concentrator, the cavity and the Stirling engine were successfully validated against experimental data. Based on a parametric study, the design of the components of the engine is carried out. The study shows that as system capacity increases, the overall efficiency is limited by the power required by the fan, since the design of the cooler needs greater amounts of heat removal by increasing the air flow without affecting the internal conditions of the process (mass flow of working gas and internal dimensions of the same). The system was optimized and achieves an overall efficiency of solar to electric energy conversion of 26.7%. This study shows that the use of an air-cooled Stirling engine is potentially attractive for power generation at low capacities. [Spanish] Este trabajo presenta un modelado matematico, la simulacion y diseno de un sistema de generacion electrica termosolar de disco parabolico con motor Stirling de 2.7 kW enfriado directamente por aire. El modelo utilizado para el concentrador, la cavidad y el motor Stirling, fueron validados satisfactoriamente con datos experimentales. Con base en un estudio parametrico se realizo el dimensionamiento de los componentes del motor. El estudio realizado muestra que conforme se incrementa la capacidad del sistema, la eficiencia global se ve limitada por la potencia requerida por el ventilador, dado que el diseno del enfriador necesita retirar mayores cantidades de calor aumentando el flujo de aire, sin afectar las condiciones internas del proceso (flujo masico del gas de trabajo y dimensiones internas del mismo). El sistema fue optimizado obteniendo una eficiencia global de conversion de energia solar a electrica de 26.7%.

    The development of a fuzzy-logic control algorithm is presented. It was developed for the speed and load control of a gas turbine. The speed/load controller of the gas turbine which were conventional Pi's were completely replaced by the fuzzy-logic controllers. The fuzzy controllers correspond to MISO systems that has as input the error an its rate of change and as an output the control signal for the fuel valve. The fuzzy controller provides an algorithm that can turn a strategy of linguistic control (based on knowledge of experts) into a strategy of automatic control. The fuzzy controllers were validated by the development of functional test in a simulation of a nonlinear mathematical gas-turbine model. The controllers were programmed in C language in PC. Simulation test for the speed regulation and load tracking were used for the controller validation. The fuzzy controller had a good performance because the minimized the signal error produced by the set of programmed system perturbations (due to control actions). Besides, they had a better reference tracking then PI controllers. Consequently, the proposed fuzzy controllers have a better performance than the conventional control system. [Spanish] En este trabajo de tesis se presenta el diseno, programacion y evaluacion de un algoritmo de control basado en logica difusa para el control de velocidad y generacion de potencia electrica de una turbina de gas. En el esquema de control velocidad/carga de la turbina de gas, se sustituyeron completamente los dos controladores convencionales del tipo PI por controladores difusos, teniendo asi un control digital directo. Los controladores difusos corresponden a sistemas MISO que utilizan como variables de entrada el error y la derivada del error, y como variable de salida la senal de control a la valvula de combustible. De esta forma, un controlador difuso provee un algoritmo que puede convertir una estrategia de control linguistico (basado en conocimiento de expertos

    This paper presents the development of two experimental models in order to ensure reliable operation of power transformers under emergency overload conditions. The first model estimates the moisture distribution in the transformer windings, while the second model estimates the safe operating temperature and time before steam bubbles generation presents. Additionally, an electronic device was designed and built, using the models developed, in order to monitor in real time both parameters. This device allows a more reliable operation of the transmission network, considering the transformers condition.

    The consumption and production of the electrical energy contribute to the gas emission that has the property of retaining heat in the atmosphere, giving rise to an increment in the global average temperature of the Earth, and causing a climatic change that the international scientific consensus describes as important alterations in the meteorological patterns. As a result of this, international actions were taken. The most ambitious agreement and by its quantified and obligatory character is presented the Kyoto Protocol, that forces the countries listed in Annex 1 to reduce their emissions through national measures and flexible mechanisms, within these last ones is the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) that contemplates the mutual cooperation between developed and developing countries in the participation of projects tending to the reduction of gas emissions of greenhouse effect. Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) has large necessities of electrical energy and steam, and counts on projects with characteristics that under the CDM cover the characteristics to be technical and economically viable.

A raiz de esto, se tomaron acciones internacionales. El acuerdo mas ambicioso y por su caracter cuantificado y obligatorio lo representa el Protocolo de Kyoto, quien obliga a los paises listados en el Anexo 1 a reducir sus emisiones a traves de medidas nacionales y mecanismos flexibles, dentro de estos ultimos se encuentra el Mecanismo de Desarrollo Limpio (MDL) que contempla la cooperacion mutua entre paises desarrollados y en vias de desarrollo en la participacion de proyectos tendientes a la reduccion de emisiones

    In this work, the design of a control system with fuzzy PID controllers is reported. It combines the techniques of multimode control and gain scheduling as well as the design of a compensator that will reduce the interaction effects among control loops in a multivariable system. The simulated system is based on a non-lineal mathematical model. Its validity range supports up to 1440 watts, for a nominal design of 1 KW power. To carry out the fuzzy PID Controller's design, firstly the PID conventional controllers were designed for three operating points of power demand: 0 W, 500 W and 1000 W. The methodology adopted for the determination of the conventional PID controller's parameters was poles cancellation. This methodology demanded the lineal identification of the process for the three mentioned operating points: low, medium and high power. With the information obtained from the adjusted conventional controllers in the three operating points, the design of fuzzy PID controllers based on the TSK system was achieved. For this work, this method is equivalent to the technique of gain scheduling since only conventional PID controllers with the same structure are used. In addition, a control scheme using a compensator that had the function of reducing the interaction effects among the control loops was designed. The compensator was located between the controller and the plant and only introduces compensation factors among control signals, maintaining the direct path of the control loop in the original control scheme. Several tests of the whole operating range, in order to make a performance analysis of both the conventional PID controller and the fuzzy PID controller were carried out, introducing step form signals in the power demand. The performance of the generation system was validated as a function of an error based index minimization as well as on the actuator control signal shape. The dynamic coupling degree among the control loops was analyzed, as well

    The advantages are presented that have the nuclear and eolic energy as for their low environmental impact and to the human health. An exercise is presented in the one that is supposed that the electric power generated by the Laguna Verde Nuclear Power plant (CNLV), with capacity of 1365 M W, it should be produced by eolic energy when in the years 2020 and 2025 the units 1 and 2 of the CNLV reach its useful life and be moved away. It is calculated the number of aero generators that would produce the electric power average yearly of the CNLV, that which is equal to install eolic parks with capacity of 2758 M W, without considering that it will also be invested in systems of back generation to produce electricity when the aero generators stops for lack of wind.

    As part of the activities of economic analysis to the National Energy Strategy 2013-2027 of Mexico has been developed a computational platform to support decision-making based on the risk and performance in obtaining the optimum combination of technologies involved in the electricity generation. To this end, they consider five technologies: combined cycle, thermal coal, nuclear, hydro and wind. Each technology has been analyzed independently based on the total cost of generation level (given in dl s/KWh or dl s/MWh), leaning on documents as the Poise 2012-2026 and COPAR 2013. Subsequently by portfolio theory proposed by Markowitz, that combination of technologies that provide a greater benefit in the electricity generation is determined. In this study we consider two base work areas on which the proposed portfolios are reflected. The conformation of work areas is derived from the National Energy Strategy 2013-2027, considering a scenario with fossil technologies (combined cycle, thermal coal and nuclear) and other, making greater emphasis on the use of renewable technologies (combined cycle, hydro and wind). Finally, four portfolios are presented, each one with different percentages of ownership of technology in electricity generation, verifying the risk and performance of each combination. Of the analyzed portfolios, one corresponds to the mix of technologies which are currently in the country. The remaining derive the percentage share of combined-cycle technology, by subtracting 10% of their contribution and distributing it in three ways: by increasing the 10% share of nuclear technology; increasing 10% contribution of thermal coal technology and finally, extending the 5% of the electricity generation of nuclear technology and 5% increase in the electricity generation by wind technology.

    Uncertainty and risks are inherent to the electric systems planning. The long period of construction that is characteristic of the electric sector works, as well as the long useful life of the generation assets and electric power transmission, they force to plan the expansion of the electric systems along horizons from 10 to 25 years. In periods so long of time it is impossible to predict with certainty the elements of the environment that could influence in the taking of decisions, like they are: the growth and the distribution of the electric power demand, the readiness and fuel prices; the investment costs of the technological options of generation and transmission, as well as the duration of the construction of future projects of new capacity addition. All expansion plan that will be propose, will be exposed to the uncertainty of the environment, gives place to risks or undesirable consequences. The nature of the risks, the strategies to delimit them and the outlines to assign them between the different interested parts and the diverse economic agents, depend in great measure of the legal and normative mark of the sector. In this work these topics are approached inside the reference mark of the Mexican public service of electric power. (Author)

    A prototype for an integrated system that includes air quality constraints to the procedure that is presently in use to determine the daily economic dispatch of power plants in Argentina is proposed. The recent incorporation of new machines to the installed capacity of the three power plants located in the densely populated metropolitan area of Buenos Aires, the thermal-based future expansion of the power sector and the relatively high nitrogen oxides concentrations that can be associated to electricity generation in the city of Buenos Aires, served to motivate this work. The prototype attempts to generate a dispatch that is compatible with the environment taking into account the present economic dispatch, weather forecast and dispersion models to evaluate ambient air concentrations of nitrogen oxides (NO{sub x}) caused by the combined operation of the thermal power plants. Although the prototype deals exclusively with NO{sub x}, since these are the pollutants of primary concern considering the fuel consumption pattern of argentinean power plants, its structure is general enough to take into account other pollutants such as sulfur dioxide and particulate matter.

    In this work a financial assessment of the economic competitiveness of wind power projects in Argentina compared with other no CO{sub 2} emission sources, such as nuclear, was developed. Argentina has a market driven electrical grid system, and no greenhouse gas emissions penalty taxes, together with a very low natural gas cost and a sustained nuclear development program. For the financial analysis an average wind velocity source of 8 m/s, on several wind farms (from 2 machines to 60) built with new technology wind generators (750 kilowatts power, 900 dollar/kilowatt cost) operating over 20 years, was considered. The leveled cost obtained is decreasing while the number of machines is increasing, from 0,130 dollar/kilowatt-hour to 0,090 dollar/kilowatts-hour. This poor performance can be partially explained considering the higher interest rates in the argentine financial market (15%) than the ones in developed countries.

    In this document are presented the technical-economical the present state of the technologies with electricity generation purposes at worldwide level and the technological prospective for the next years. At present it is estimated that in most of the power scenarios at worldwide level the situation will continue with a strong dependency in fossil fuels. The future dynamics of the energy procurement will depend on diverse factors such as energy efficiency, the international norms and regulations derived of the environmental impact and prices of the primary energy sources. The countries of the first world are developing new technologies of compatible character with the environment, with self-consumption intentions and with the vision of establishing new markets of export towards developing countries. In this context, several countries have established R y D programs for the generation of electricity through solar systems using the thermodynamic conversion. [Spanish] En este documento se presenta el estado actual tecnico-economico de las tecnologias con propositos de generacion de electricidad a nivel mundial y la prospectiva tecnologica para los proximos anos.

    Sizing an electric energy system requires an analysis of investment, maintenance and operating costs. In the case of a generation system that uses renewable sources, optimal capacity becomes more complex compared to a conventional system, because of the randomness of renewable resources (wind, solar) and the still high costs of wind and photovoltage generator modules. This work presents the optimal sizing of a wind-solar-fuel cell generation system, minimizing the costs of the system while satisfying the energy demands of an isolated charge. The optimization method used is based on an evolutionary programming technique known as particle swarms (PSO-particle swarm optimization). The generation of energy with a hybrid system is discussed, based on the profile of insolation and wind availability at the site, with the objective of satisfying a specific electric demand. [Spanish] El dimensionamiento de un sistema de generacion de energia electrica requiere un analisis de los costos de inversion, mantenimiento y operacion. En el caso de un sistema de generacion que utiliza fuentes renovables la capacidad optima resulta mas compleja con respecto a un sistema convencional, debido a la aleatoriedad de los recursos renovables (eolico, solar), y a los aun altos costos de generadores eolicos y modulos fotovoltaicos. En este trabajo se presenta el dimensionamiento optimo de un sistema de generacion eolico-solar-celda de combustible minimizando los costos del sistema que satisfaga la energia demandada por una carga aislada. El metodo de optimizacion utilizado esta basado en una tecnica de programacion evolutiva conocida como enjambre de particulas (PSO por sus siglas en ingles: particle swarm optimization). Se plantea la generacion de energia del sistema hibrido con base a la insolacion y el perfil del viento disponible en sitio, con objeto de satisfacer una demanda electrica determinada.

    In this work one simulates, using the program MESSAGE, the generation park electric of the Argentine Republic and their possible expansion, with restrictions in the readiness of fossil fuels. This, as other models of planning energetics promoted by IAEA, optimizes the expansion of the net having as function objective the smallest cost in the system. 25 years they were simulated, adopting like base the anus 2000 and considering different scenarios of internal and external demands. It was analysed the increase of the demand with restrictions in the readiness of the natural gas in the winter periods, since the Argentinean electric system has a great dependence of this fuel. To cover the increase of the electric demand, were selected the machines and fuels, at the moment available, with more technical and economic possibilities. In the scenarios without restrictions to the use of natural gas the program selects to the nuclear power station of Atucha II, to the increase of bench mark of the hydraulic power station of Yacireta and combined cycles that burn natural gas. In those in that the supply of natural gas is limited, it selects previously besides the signal ones, other nuclear power stations, other hydroelectric projects and turbines of gas operating with gas oil to cover the top requirements.

    Under the expectations of expansion of electric power generation in Mexico, this work exposes the development of a conventional and intelligent generalized supervisory control (CSG) for a combined cycle generation power plant. This one allows to obtain the optimal operation of the power plant through the automatic starting of the generating units and to obtain the maximum possible amount of electrical power in automatic and safe form. For the development of the CSG a control loop by temperature was implemented for the gas turbine system and a control loop by strangled pressure for the gas turbine and a control loop by strangled pressure for the steam turbine. The design of these supervisory systems was made with base in the critical limits on the involved variables of the process: blading average temperature, for the gas turbine (GT) and strangled pressure for the steam turbine (ST) [Spanish] Bajo estas expectativas de expansion de generacion de energia en Mexico, este trabajo expone el desarrollo de un control supervisorio generalizado (CSG) para una central generacion de ciclo combinado.

    (conventional or intelligent) is possible to get more power generation than if we use the automatic methods based on feedback MW control. Consequently, the financial benefit due to the MW generated along a period of 2 months, is equivalent to return the investment required if the CCPP would had been repowered. Test also showed that with the fuzzy based SGC is possible to get a 'little more' power generation than if we use the PID based SGC. The development and implementation of the SGC was made in three phases: First Phase: Upgrading of the simulation dynamic mathematical model and implementation in a new software platform based on LabWindows/CVI. Second Phase: Design, implementation and testing of the PID based SGC. Third Phase: Design and implementation and testing of the Intelligent SGC, based in fuzzy logic.

    To the interior of the Generation of Electrical Equipment (GEE) of the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas, one of the main activities is the diagnosis of the electrical equipment in service. It is well known that the power equipment represents a strong investment that requires the guarantee that it has been manufactured, installed and operated satisfactorily. The life expectancy of these devices is of thirty years, however, many of them already have surpassed that expectation. The rehabilitation or substitution of the equipment implies new investments that are needed for an evaluation of the real condition of the equipment to carry out such rehabilitation. One of the tools necessary to carry out the diagnosis, is a movable laboratory that facilitates all the necessary tools to perform a meticulous analysis that would allow, the client, to make high cost decisions. The application of the movable laboratory is advisable from the inauguration of the equipment. The electrical mechanisms are factory tested in accordance with standardized protocols; it guarantees the fulfillment of the necessary requirements for a correct operation. Nevertheless, when taking them to the assembly site, these are subjected to a series of processes and mechanical stresses that could alter the equipment conditions and its integrity. [Spanish] Al interior de la Generacion de Equipos Electricos (GEE) del Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas, una de las principales actividades es el diagnostico del equipo electrico en servicio.

La esperanza de vida de estos dispositivos es de treinta anos, no obstante, muchos de ellos ya han superado esa expectativa.

    Nuclear Data Bank generation, is a process in which a great amount of resources is required, both computing and humans. If it is taken into account that at some times it is necessary to create a great amount of those, it is convenient to have a reliable tool that generates Data Banks with the lesser resources, in the least possible time and with a very good approximation. In this work are shown the results obtained during the development of INTPOLBI code, use to generate Nuclear Data Banks employing bicubic polynominal interpolation, taking as independent variables the uranium and gadolinia percents. Two proposal were worked, applying in both cases the finite element method, using one element with 16 nodes to carry out the interpolation. In the first proposals the canonic base was employed, to obtain the interpolating polynomial and later, the corresponding linear equation systems. In the solution of this systems the Gaussian elimination methods with partial pivot was applied. In the second case, the Newton base was used to obtain the mentioned system, resulting in a triangular inferior matrix, which structure, applying elemental operations, to obtain a blocks diagonal matrix, with special characteristics and easier to work with. For the validation tests, a comparison was made between the values obtained with INTPOLBI and INTERTEG (create at the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (MX) with the same purpose) codes, and Data Banks created through the conventional process, that is, with nuclear codes normally used. Finally, it is possible to conclude that the Nuclear Data Banks generated with INTPOLBI code constitute a very good approximation that, even though do not wholly replace conventional process, however are helpful in cases when it is necessary to create a great amount of Data Banks.

    The presented study is divided into two main issues for wind energy generation: the economical scope, and the environment. A comparison from different perspectives is made between both costs. The study is focused in the Mexico central region called Bajio, where the wind data is obtained. The usage of different types of wind turbines is planned to generate electricity, and a comparison is made between them in different aspects. An invest of 20 years is expected for this equip. While comparing the costs, the estimated by emissions of CO{sup 2} by kW/h generated (environmental cost), with these cost it is showed the quantities of CO{sup 2} that can be stopped of emitting to the atmosphere by the use of fossil fuels. The data encourages the use of renewable energy in relation with the wind potential in the region. This is how the presented study shows the options of decision making to implement and viability of the usage of wind turbines for the production of electric energy under the wind conditions provided by the Bajio region. [Spanish] El estudio que se presenta se divide en dos principales puntos para la generacion de energia eolica: el ambito economico y el medio ambiental.

    This document explains the importance of the sustainable development in the electric energy, that is, that the technological advances in the electric sector do no hamper the future of the generations to come and generate potential problems such as: environmental pollution, unnecessary expenses in the realization of new technologies already executed. Mention is made of the relationship between nature and society, the ecological crisis, and the electric energy, seven points are given on how to control and treat waste waters, three points are given to handle and dispose of solid wastes, finally four points are given on the noise contamination control. It is concluded that the problem of reducing the environmental impact of the generation of electricity does not depend on the applied technology, since there are technological options for its solution, but on other more complex factors that deal with the generation of wealth, its distribution and the population growing [Espanol] En el presente documento se explica la importancia del desarrollo sustentable en la energia electrica, es decir que los avances tecnologicos en el sector energetico no entorpezcan el futuro de las generaciones venideras y generen posibles problemas como: contaminacion del medio ambiente, gastos innecesarios en la realizacion de las nuevas tecnologias realizadas. Se menciona la relacion entre la naturaleza y la sociedad, la crisis ecologica y la energia electrica, se dan siete puntos de como controlar y tratar aguas residuales, se proporcionan tres puntos para manejar y disponer de residuos solidos, por ultimo se dan cuatro puntos sobre el control de la contaminacion por ruido. Se concluye en que el problema de reducir el impacto ambiental por la generacion de electricidad no depende de la tecnologia empleada pues existen alternativas tecnologicas para su solucion, sino en otros aun mas complejos que tienen que ver con la generacion de la riqueza, su distribucion y el crecimiento de la poblacion

    sensores y actuadores. En la actualidad este tipo de centrales tiende a dominar el mercado de generacion electrica por medio de combustibles fosiles, debido a que son las mas eficientes, rentables, de operacion flexible y con menor impacto ambiental. En la CGCC, la turbina de vapor (TV) es una componente fundamental, ya que representa la ganancia del proceso en el sentido de que permite la generacion de energia electrica adicional al aprovechar los gases de escape de la turbina de gas. En caso de que la TV falle, la eficiencia global del proceso se reduce hasta en un 40%. Por lo anterior, en este trabajo se desarrollo un sistema de diagnostico de fallas basado en modelos, de acuerdo a la metodologia FDI (Fault Detection and Isolation) de la teoria de control, con capacidad para detectar y localizar fallas en los sensores y actuadores del turbogenerador a vapor de una CGCC. El enfoque que se utilizo emplea la redundancia analitica con el objetivo de optimizar la redundancia fisica, de manera que sea posible disminuir el costo y espacio extra que implica el utilizar dispositivos repetidos. El diseno del sistema se llevo a cabo usando el analisis estructural AE) que es una herramienta basada en la teoria de grafos y ciencias de la computacion. El AE permitio realizar: analisis de monitoreabilidad, detectabilidad y aislabilidad del proceso; y proporciono la secuencia de computo de las variables no monitoreadas (desconocidas) para obtener las relaciones de redundancia analitica. Para validar el sistema de diagnostico de fallas de la TV, se programaron los algoritmos de deteccion y localizacion de fallas en LabWindows, CVI y se integraron al simulador de la CGCC. Ademas para facilitar al usuario la visualizacion de la presencia de una falla se desarrollo una interfase grafica que indica el elemento con comportamientos anormales, ya sea sensor o actuador.

    The general characteristics of a planning model for the electrical generation system expansion with risk demarcation criteria, as well as the main results of a representative study case of the Mexican Electrical System is presented. The model is based on a methodology of multiannual optimization for the generation expansion plans determination. In this context, every expansion plan defines the technology type to be installed, as well as the installation year, unit size and its location within a regional electric network. For this purpose, the model considers an interregional representation of the system identifying the necessary reinforcements to the capacity of the interregional connections. It also incorporates a Demarcation of Risk module that considers the uncertainty of the future scenarios of fuels prices to generate a set of expansion plans, among which includes the following: a) For every future of the fuel prices: the plan that diminishes the present value of the total cost (investment plus production). b) The plan that diminishes the economic risk derived from the uncertainty in the future of the fuel prices. c) A subgroup of expansion plans that are located in the efficient borders of decision, under the context of three criteria of interest: the economic risk, the investment cost of and the total cost in the future considered of greater relevance. [Spanish] Se presentan las caracteristicas generales de un modelo de planificacion de la expansion del sistema electrico de generacion con criterios de acotamiento de riesgo, asi como los principales resultados de un caso de estudio representativo del Sistema Electrico Mexicano. El modelo se basa en una metodologia de optimacion multi-anual para la determinacion de planes de expansion de la generacion. En este contexto, cada plan de expansion define el tipo de tecnologia que debera instalarse, asi como el ano de instalacion, el tamano de la unidad y su localizacion dentro de una red electrica regional.

    C-14 is a radioactive isotope of C with a half-life of 5700 years that decays to N-14 by emission of beta radiation. It is naturally produced in the upper atmosphere by cosmic ray neutrons via the (n;p) reaction over N-14. Anthropogenic C-14 has been generated in the past by atmospheric nuclear weapon tests and it is currently produced during the operation of nuclear reactors. Once released this radionuclide behaves in the biosphere as the standard carbon cycle. Since the beginning of the industrial period the relationship Carbon-14/Stable Carbon has changed continuously, and so the dose incurred by the world population. In this paper the main anthropogenic activities that modified such relationship are presented and analyzed: the Suess effect and the generation of nuclear energy. It is concluded that the current trend of reduction of the total dose due to C-14 will continue during the next decades. Finally it is indicated that in order to prevent an excessive accumulation of this radionuclide in the biosphere, actions should be collectively implemented to be effective. (author) [Spanish] El C-14 es un isotopo radiactivo del C con un periodo de semidesintegracion igual a 5700 anios y que decae a N-14 por emision de radiacion beta. Se produce naturalmente en las altas capas de la atmosfera debido a la reaccion N-14(n,p)C-14 inducida por neutrones lentos de rayos cosmicos. El C-14 antropogenico se genero debido a los ensayos nucleares y actualmente es producido durante la operacion de los reactores nucleares. Una vez liberado se incorpora a la biosfera a traves del ciclo del carbono. A partir de los inicios del periodo industrial la relacion C-14/C-estable, y por ende la dosis debida a C-14 que recibiria la poblacion mundial, ha variado continuamente. El objetivo del presente trabajo es presentar y analizar los distintos factores antropogenicos que modifican la concentracion de C-14, en particular el efecto Suess y la generacion de energia nuclear.

    Due to the problems with the environment and other issues arising from the use of oil as the main source of energy, such as unstable politics and economics, there has been a growing interest in the development of alternative forms of energy over the last few years. In this field, the sun is a fundamental element, since any form of existing energy derives from it, directly or indirectly. Taking in to consideration all of these renewable energies, we have decided to focus on solar thermal energy, seeing as it will play a vital role in the future particularly in countries such as Spain that have great solar potential. Amid this form of renewable energy, the parabolic cylinder concentrator power plants are technologies with one of the most promising futures. Power plants with sufficient technological developments to compete with the other forms of energies and that have an extensive margin for improvement. These power plants are the subject of the investigations carried out in this project. This project will try to establish and standardize some of the necessary procedures for the process of data prior to the simulation of energy with these types of power plants. The final objective is to help create a regulation where all these procedures are gathered together, and one that can be used as a guide for future investigations on the viability of these power plants. To achieve this, this project is comprised of various phases where different necessary investigations will be carried out in order to define the different points of the regulation. Firstly, the different casuistries will be investigated when analyzing the behavior of the estimated input data. At this stage, the selected variable (global or direct radiation), as well as the procedure used for the generation of the Monthly Reference Value, will be taken in to account, differentiating it in to two different typologies. The best method for the adjustment of the estimated data obtained from the satellite images will

    This work is devoted to the analysis of the Automatic Control of Electrical Systems Generation of power, as of the information that generates the loop with Load-Frequency Control and the Automatic Voltage Regulator loop. To accomplish the analysis, the control classical theory and feedback control systems concepts are applied. Thus also, the modern theory concepts are employed. The studies are accomplished in the digital computer through the MATLAB program and the available simulation technique in the SIMULINK tool. In this thesis the theoretical and physical concepts of the automatic control of generation are established; dividing it in load frequency control and automatic voltage regulator loops. The mathematical models of the two control loops are established. Later, the models of the elements are interconnected in order to integrate the loop with load frequency control and the digital simulation of the system is carried out. In first instance, the function of the primary control in are - machine, area - multi machine and multi area - multi machine power systems, is analyzed. Then, the automatic control of generation of the area and multi area power systems is studied. The economic dispatch concept is established and with this plan the power system multi area is simulated, there in after the energy exchange among areas in stationary stage is studied. The mathematical models of the component elements of the control loop of the automatic voltage regulator are interconnected. Data according to the nature of each component are generated and their behavior is simulated to analyze the system response. The two control loops are interconnected and a simulation is carry out with data generated previously, examining the performance of the automatic control of generation and the interaction between the two control loops. Finally, the Poles Positioning and the Optimum Control techniques of the modern control theory are applied to the automatic control of an area generation

    The large industrial centers that have continuous production processes and consume high amounts of electrical energy, generally have their own power generation. The petrochemical complexes, the paper and steel factories and the sugar mills are examples of this type of centers. On the other hand, the new regulation for the generation of electrical energy that allows to the electrical energy interchange between private companies and the public network, has originated the necessity of connecting systems that formerly operated isolated. Since the original design of the isolated electrical systems was to operate in an independent form, making the interconnection can generate technical problems that must be analyzed and solved. In this paper, some experiences related with the behavior of electrical equipment when connected to operate with the public network, are presented. [Spanish] Los grandes centros industriales que tienen procesos de produccion continua y consumen altas cantidades de energia electrica, generalmente cuentan con generacion propia. Los complejos petroquimicos, las fabricas de papel y acero y los ingenios azucareros son ejemplos de este tipo de centros. Por otro lado, la nueva reglamentacion de generacion de energia electrica que permite el intercambio de energia electrica entre las companias privadas y la red publica, ha originado la necesidad de conectar sistemas que antes operaban aislados. Debido a que el diseno original de los sistemas electricos aislados fue trabajar en forma independiente, el realizar la interconexion puede generar problemas tecnicos que tienen que analizarse y resolverse. En este articulo, se presentan algunas experiencias relacionadas con el comportamiento del equipo electrico al operar conectado con la red publica.

    many environmental obstacles exist. Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru are the South American countries that still have the greatest availability of economically viable water resources to be exploited, since those countries do not even use 7% of the available potential. Venezuela and Paraguay stand out in South America as using more than 50% of the economically available potential for hydroelectric generation in the region. Geothermal energy is an important resource in Mexico and Central America, with an installed capacity of 965 MW and 502 MW in 2008, respectively. In those two cases, this is the primary source of power generation. Argentina's high-enthalpy fields are sufficient for geothermal use to generate energy, but there is no estimate of the generation potential. Chile is another country that tries to develop its geothermal potential. In 2009, the government of Chile requested bids for 20 contracts for geothermal energy exploitation. During the geothermal bidding process, 59 offers from exploitation projects were received and 9 companies were granted licenses for the 20 areas solicited. Biomass is an especially important energy resource in Brazil, where it has already surpassed CHP. It is also relevant in Argentina and Colombia, where it is associated with the alcohol-sugar industry and a growing interest in cogeneration systems.

The main objective is to plan the expansion of electrical generation system at long term taking into account four decision criteria. These are, the total cost of generation, the risk associated whit changes in fuel prices, the diversity of the generation park and polluting emissions of global impact (greenhouse effect gases) and local effects (acid rain and suspended particles). The analyzed expansion plans were developed using a model of uni nodal planning called WASP-IV. The analysis methodology was based on four steps. The first consisted in developing, with model WASP-IV, different expansion plans of the electrical generation system that fulfill the energy demand and certain conditions of the study in which was optimized the additions program of generator units searching the minimal cost of electrical generation. The second step was to calculate the generation costs of each plan for two scenarios of fuel prices, also with model WASP-IV. Later was calculated the diversity index and the accumulated emissions during the expansion and the avoided emission of CO{sub 2} when units of combined cycle that burn natural gas are replaced by nuclear power units.

    At the present time, to international scale they have been observing a series of interactions with the matter that have not been possible to explain until the moment. Some effects are the calls ''hot points'' whose development generates temperatures of the order of 5000 C, pressures of 500 atmospheres and superior gradients of temperature to the 600 C/s. Experimentally, with the help of spectrum analyzers, it has been possible to detect the production of frequencies of 23 GHz, starting from an ultrasonic pulse of 5 MHz. Also, by means of ultrasonic excitement achievement the decoloration of a solution of methylene blue, effect that alone it had been achieved with gamma radiation the one that is very well-known as ionizing. Another observed interesting aspect is the generation of an electric current with ultrasonic excitement in deionized water and two electrodes. (Author)

    The preferential orientation, not alone it exists in metals, but also in minerals or in general in crystalline materials, notwithstanding in the metals it can be transformed by means of those processes of having mechanical worked such as laminate, wrapping, etc. To the preferable orientation of the crystals is also known as texture and since the properties of the crystalline materials lens depend on the orientation that present its glasses, it is important to know its texture. The difficulty for to represent and to describe the grade of preferential orientation in textured materials take to F. Weber to adapt the stereo graphic projection of a monocrystal to a poles figure. Later on, its appeared but methods to obtain the polar figure, among them, that of reflection of L. G. Schultz, but again a technique appears it specifies for its obtaining. In all the cases, the methodology is the following one: a) It is obtained by means of the diffraction process, the correspondent spectra in digitized form. b) it is applied process of having softened mathematician of the spectrum. c) there are determined the fi coordinates, beta and intensity for graph nts of the polar figure. d) Its are graph the points generated in c obtaining the polar figures. The objective of this work, is leaving of a softened spectra, to generate the coordinated fi, beta and corresponding intensity to proceed to their graph and generation of the polar figure. In this specific work, the methodology of Philips is used that consists in making a sweeping in hairspring form with the radiation to detect in these points the execution of the Bragg law. (Author)

    Historically, the electrical systems were constituted from local networks of small scale that were added together progressively to benefit from the effects of a more abundant demand and of the economies of scale in generation, that authorize the large interconnected systems. This logic at the moment seems to show certain limits, the factors that influence these technologies can vary greatly from one country to another, but nevertheless it is found in different degrees certain constants such as the search for a greater reliability in the electrical supply, the putting into work prevention policies of climatic change or the reforms of the electrical sector. In this work the influence of these factors was examined insisting particularly on the consequences of the opening of the electrical sector, departing from an analysis of the international experience in a first time and later examining the case of Mexico in the context of the present energy situation and the debate of the energy reform. The distributed generation: a new vector of technological opportunities in the electrical sector, the barriers for the diffusion of the distributed generation: the lessons of the international experience, the institutional problematic of the distributed generation within the effective legal framework of Mexico.

    Aiming to ensure continuity in the electrical supply to critical processes, the electrical systems of large industrial plants, i.e. gas, and petrochemical industries usually posses local generation. Should the local generation be enough to satisfy the demand of the plant, then the interconnection with the public grid is commonly used as an important support for emergency conditions. This paper is concerned with the dynamical performance of two interconnected industrial power systems tied to the transmission system. Simulation results indicate that the frequency performance of one of the industrial plants, after the transients caused by the loss of the tie with the transmission system have died out, is greatly improved if both industrial plants remain connected after the disturbance. [Spanish] La continuidad en el suministro de energia electrica a procesos criticos de grandes complejos industriales, tales como plantas petroquimicas, procesadoras de gas, etc., es un aspecto de fundamental importancia para garantizar una operacion adecuada de este tipo de complejos. Con el proposito de mejorar la confiabilidad en el suministro de energia a los procesos criticos, los sistemas electricos de estos complejos industriales, generalmente cuentan con generacion propia. Si la capacidad de generacion instalada en los sistemas industriales es suficiente para satisfacer el total de la carga del complejo, la interconexion con el sistema de transmision es utilizada principalmente como respaldo durante condiciones de emergencia. En este articulo se analiza el comportamiento dinamico de dos sistemas industriales con generacion propia, disenados para operar en forma aislada, interconectados entre si, a traves de un enlace de 115 kV y con el sistema de transmision. Los resultados obtenidos indican que el comportamiento de la frecuencia en estado estable en uno de los complejos, posterior a la perdida del enlace con el sistema de transmision, mejora de manera considerable cuando estos

    The necessity of saving energy is urgent and undeniable. We must already begin with the rational use of energy. Which is obtaining the maximum benefit of the consumed energy and of the necessary facilities for its generation, transmission and use. Guaranteeing at the same time an operation free of interferences or interruptions for the users. The electricity in alternating current does not allow its storage, reason why it is necessary to generate and distribute it at the precise moment when it is required. This forces to determine the proportions of the generation facilities, to be able to feed the periods of maximum demand called {sup p}eaks{sup .} It is this very point where the problem of the inappropriate use of the electrical energy starts. The energy waste is self-evident during the periods of low demand because of the low efficiency of the sub-utilized facilities. Electrical motors of the induction type use approximately more than 60% of the energy in the industry. If we use high efficiency motors instead of standard motors, a better advantage of the energy demanded from Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) is obtained. [Spanish] Es impostergable e innegable la necesidad de ahorrar energia. Tenemos que empezar ya con el uso racional de la energia: Obtener el maximo beneficio de la energia consumida y de las instalaciones necesarias para su generacion, transmision y utilizacion. Garantizando a los usuarios un funcionamiento sin interferencias o interrupciones. La electricidad en corriente alterna no permite su almacenamiento, por lo que es necesario generarla y distribuirla en el momento preciso en que es requerida. Esto obliga a dimensionar las instalaciones de generacion, para poder alimentar los periodos de maxima demanda llamados pico. Desde esta parte inicia el problema de la mala utilizacion de la energia electrica. Ya que en los periodos de baja demanda, las instalaciones se encuentran subutilizadas y si su eficiencia es muy baja, el desperdicio de

    In the present work, it is calculated the amount of energy and the reductions of greenhouse gases emissions that may be obtained taking advantage of organic wastes, such as, sugarcane bagasse and urban wastes. The appropriate use of these waster could generate up to 28% of the power requirements reported for the state of Morelos in 2005. Likewise, the Clean Development Mechanism could be employed to negotiate carbon certificates in such as way that the industrialized countries could meet with the goals implemented in the Kyoto Protocol and the state of Morelos could get the financial resource to be in the front technologic line with respect to the utilization of organic waster to generate power and to reduce greenhouse gases emissions. [Spanish] En el presente trabajo se estima la cantidad de energia y reduccion de emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero que podria obtenerse mediante el aprovechamiento de desechos industriales y municipales en el estado de Morelos, Mexico, tales como el bagazo de cana y la basura municipal. El uso adecuado de estos desechos podria generar hasta un 28% de los requerimientos energeticos de Morelos reportados en 2005. Asimismo, a traves del programa de Mecanismo de Desarrollo Limpio se podrian negociar certificados de carbono para que los paises industrializados cumplan las metas estipuladas en el Protocolo de Kyoto, y el estado de Morelos obtenga la inversion necesaria para estar a la vanguardia tecnologica en la utilizacion de desechos organicos para la generacion de energia y la reduccion de gases de efecto invernadero.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Estimar el riesgo para desarrollar psicopatología entre padres e hijos a lo largo de tres generaciones. MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: Se utilizó el método del "estudio de la historia familiar". Para el estudio se utilizaron datos de una encuesta probabilística de hogares efectuada en 1995 en la Ciudad de México. Los probandos fueron adultos entre los 18 a 65 años de edad (n=1 932 a quienes se entrevistó utilizando la Entrevista Internacional Diagnóstica Compuesta. Además, se obtuvo información acerca de antecedentes psiquiátricos en sus padres empleando el método y los criterios diagnósticos de la historia familiar. Finalmente, en aquellos adultos con hijos de entre 4 a 16 años viviendo en el mismo hogar (n=925 se les aplicó un cuestionario para detectar la presencia de psicopatología en cada uno de sus hijos, obteniéndose información acerca de 1 686 niños y adolescentes. Para estimar el riesgo de morbilidad entre generaciones y la interacción entre éstas, se distinguió cuando sólo hubiera antecedentes en los abuelos, solamente en los padres y cuando estaban presentes en los abuelos y en los padres. La probabilidad de ser "caso" se obtuvo a partir de la razón de momios resultante de los análisis de regresión logística siguiendo tres diferentes modelos: el clásico, el con efectos aleatorios y el con ecuaciones de estimación generalizada con varianza robusta. RESULTADOS: La probabilidad de presentar psicopatología es entre dos a tres veces mayor cuando hay trastornos psiquiátricos en los padres. La probabilidad es mayor cuando existe comorbilidad entre diferentes tipos de trastornos. CONCLUSIONES: El riesgo para desarrollar psicopatología entre las generaciones es al menos moderado y relativamente estable. Los resultados sugieren que, en general, la transmisión de psicopatología entre las generaciones es acorde con la de un modelo genético mixto.OBJECTIVE: To estimate the risk of psychiatric disorders across

Entendemos por administración «imperativa» aquella que opera haciendo uso de potestades públicas y resuelve con carácter unilateral en un proceso jerárquico o en cascada, de arriba hacia abajo, mientras que la «cooperativa» se da cuando la administración no es autosuficiente y requiere de la colaboración de otras administraciones y del sector privado. El proceso no es jerárquico, sino en red. Finalmente, por «gobernanza», sea administrativa o cooperativa, se hace referencia a un nuevo estilo de gobierno, en el cual la administración goza de un particular protagonismo en la realización y ejecución de las políticas públicas. En este orden de ideas, el concepto de «procedimiento administrativo» no se detiene ya en la exclusiva idea de procedimiento como proceso decisorio, sino que también implica la obtención y el intercambio de información —para elaborar un mapa medioambiental, realizar una inspección, recabar informes y estudios científicos, por ejemplo—.

    This project studies the impact of new regulations for solar thermal power plants purporting to be made in the future. In this document we analyze each of the points of the standard PROCEDURE FOR GENERATING A REPRESENTATIVE SOLAR YEAR is expected to be approved in a short period of time. The main purpose of this standard is to establish a series of solar radiation data called Representative Solar Year (RSY), which are hourly data for a full year that characterize the site where the plant will be installed. For this there is the possibility of generating the RSY by two methods, the first is to use estimates of solar radiation and the second use solar radiation data measured at the site. The second case is the one that will be addressed in the following pages. According to the methodology set out in the rule for generating RSY, through measured data, develops each of the points which can obtain the final result an estimate of the energy produced by the plant. First we calculate a Monthly Reference Values (MRV) of solar radiation as a basis for generating the RSY. The following is taken measured data sets must overcome quality and validation processes. The next step is to make an accommodation between the MRV and sets measured by a change of days, following the directions of the standard. The end result of this process we obtain the respective RSY that for purposes of this study will be entered into a simulation program that calculates the energy produced by a solar thermal plant. In this way we analyze and compare the energy produced by the plant with real data and RSY data obtained. (Author)

    This work is focused to project the volumes of radioactive aqueous liquid wastes and spent radioactive sources that will be generated in our country in next 15 years, solids compaction and radioactive organic liquids in 10 years starting from the 2014; with the purpose of knowing the technological needs that will be required for their administration. The methodology involves six aspects to develop: the definition of general objectives, to specify the temporary horizon of projection, data collection, selection of the prospecting model and the model application. This approach was applied to the inventory of aqueous liquid wastes, as well as radioactive compaction organic and solids generated in Mexico by non energy applications from the 2001 to 2014, and of the year 1997 at 2014 for spent sources. The applied projection models were: Double exponential smoothing associating the tendency, Simple Smoothing and Lineal Regression. For this study was elected the first forecast model and its application suggests that: the volume of the compaction solid wastes, aqueous liquids and spent radioactive sources will increase respectively in 152%, 49.8% and 55.7%, while the radioactive organic liquid wastes will diminish in 13.15%.

    The biogas from bio-energy electrical power plant of Nuevo Leon represents, in all the national territory, the first experience on the advantage of biogas emitted by the sanitary landfills for the generation of electrical energy. Therefore, one of the specific objectives of this paper is the one of diffusion and reproduction of the same one in other cities of Mexico and Latin America. The project is framed within the world-wide policies on the control of emissions for the reduction of the greenhouse effect gases (GEG) and its impact in the global climatic change. The gas emitted by the trash sanitary landfills, commonly known as biogas, is a gas mixture derived from the decomposition of the organic matter of the municipal trash by microorganisms in anaerobic conditions. Biogas generated in the sanitary landfills has a methane content of 55% and a 35% of carbon dioxide. The balance 10% is made up of water steam, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen sulfur and other gases in minimum amounts. [Spanish] La Central Electrica de Biogas de Bioenergia de Nuevo Leon representa, en todo el territorio nacional, la primera experiencia sobre el aprovechamiento del biogas emitido por los rellenos sanitarios para la generacion de energia electrica.

    Commercial exploitation in the Los Azufres geothermal field, Michoacan, Mexico, started in 1982 when the first five backpressure-power units of 5-MW each were commissioned. Nowadays the installed capacity is 188 MW from 14 units: five in the South Zone fed by steam produced from 18 production wells plus two binary-cycle power units fed by residual brines; and seven in the North Zone with steam supplied by 22 production wells. There are seven backpressure-power units with high specific consumption [between 14.5 and 13.6 tons per hour of steam (t/h) per MW]. Three operate in the South Zone and four in the North Zone. This paper shows a way to achieve more efficient use of the geothermal resource by replacing the seven backpressure units, which have completed their useful lifetime-or are close to do it-with two, new condensing power units with lower specific consumption: one unit of 50 MW to be located in the North Zone and the other of 25 MW to be placed in the South Zone. No new wells need be drilled. In this way, the average specific consumption would be reduced to 8.8-7.2 t/h per MW (saving 47% of the steam), the income for electric generation would be increased and the steam-extraction rate would remain the same.

    In this work a technical and economical analysis of the installation of a reverse osmosis desalting plant connected to a power station that uses the combined cycle technology under a co-generation scheme is presented: production of electricity and water. The operation program of the desalting power station will be determined by the demand of energy of the combined cycle power station; the proposal is that the desalting plant operates in the hours of low load of the power station and shuts down at the peak hours of electrical energy demand. So that this study is representative, the demand curves of electric energy of the units of combined cycle of Central President Juarez Rosarito of the Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) have been taken and updated the data of the reverse osmosis desalting plants that are available at the moment in the market. As basis of the study the level costs will be determined so much as the electrical energy generated by the power station of combined cycle, operating inside and outside of a co-generation scheme and the costs made level for the water produced by the reverse osmosis plant under two assumptions: the first one is buying the electrical energy from CFE and the second one considering that the CFE is the owner of the desalting plant and therefore the cost of electrical energy to desalting the plant is zero. This work shows the economic impacts on the costs of the generation of electrical energy and on those of the desalted water in a co-generation scheme. The results shown in this study can be considered for the future planning in the construction of desalting plants to supply of water in the Northwestern zones of the country where serious problems of water shortage exist.

    The main objective of this dissertation has been the contributions to the operation in automatic mode of a new generation of direct steam generation solar plants with parabolic-trough collectors. The dissertation starts introducing the parabolic-trough collectors solar thermal technology for the generation of process steam or steam for a Rankine cycle in the case of power generation generation, which is currently the most developed and commercialized technology. Presently, the parabolic-trough collectors technology is based on the configuration known as heat-exchanger system, based in the use of a heat transfer fluid in the solar field which is heated during the recirculation through the absorber tubes of the solar collectors, transferring later on the that thermal energy to a heat-exchanger for steam generation. Direct steam generation in the absorber tubes has always been shown as an ideal pathway to reduce generation cost by 15% and increase conversion efficiency by 20% (DISS, 1999). (Author)

    A study is carried out as a first draft to evaluate the technical feasibility of wind energy as a supplement of the existing power supply system available in isolated locations in Southern Chile, such as, Sea Mayors and Lighthouses. At present, most of these places are accessible only by sea and are supplied by diesel generators. This project aims to reduce the oil consumption which is transported in these remote zones by Chilean Navy ships. The responsible department of the Chilean Navy purchased a small Savonius type vertical 1000 Watts wind turbine to assess the feasibility of this project. This aims to encourage the use of wind, which is strong and permanent in these extreme latitudes of the southern zone. Evaluations of main parameters are conducted to obtain the generator rate and maximum operating range, e.g. the main variables that determine a wind generation system to match electricity demand, the types of wind generators and its power. Wind potential in the region is determined and an autonomous hybrid wind-diesel.

    The aim of this work is the generation of sequences of hourly global radiation which have similar statistically characteristics of real sequences for the city of Madrid (Spain). For this generation, a first order Markov model has been proposed. The input parameters of simulation method are the following: The maximum value of hourly radiation and the average monthly value of the transparency normalized index. The maximum value of hourly radiation has been calculated as a function of the solar height by an empirical expression. The transparency normalized index has been defined as the ratio among the measured hourly global radiation to the maximum value for the corresponding solar height. The method is based on the following observations: -The transparency normalized index shows a significant correlation only for two consecutive hours. -The months with the same average transparency normalized indies have similar probability density function. Global solar radiation, time series, simulation, Markov transition matrix, solar energy.

    This study sought to evaluate second-generation drug-eluting stent (DES) thrombosis in clinical practice. First-generation DES are associated with a significant incidence of late thrombosis. There is paucity of data regarding real practice late thrombosis incidence and predictors with second-generation DES, zotarolimus-eluting stent (ZES), and everolimus-eluting stents (EES). A prospective, large-scale, non-industry-linked multicenter registry was designed. Complete clinical-procedural data and systematic follow-up of all patients treated with these stents was reported in a dedicated registry supported by the Spanish Working Group on Interventional Cardiology. From 2005 to 2008, 4,768 patients were included in 34 centers: 2,549 treated with ZES, and 2,219 with EES. The cumulative incidence of definite/probable thrombosis for ZES was 1.3% at 1 year and 1.7% at 2 years and for EES 1.4% at 1 year and 1.7% at 2 years (p = 0.8). The increment of definite thrombosis between the first and second year was 0.2% and 0.25%, respectively. In a propensity score analysis, the incidence remained very similar. Ejection fraction (adjusted hazard ratio [HR]: 0.97; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.95 to -0.99; p = 0.008), stent diameter (adjusted HR: 0.37; 95% CI: 0.17to 0.81; p = 0.01) and bifurcations (adjusted HR: 2.1; 95% CI: 1.14 to 3.7; p = 0.02) emerged as independent predictors of thrombosis. In the subgroup of patients with bifurcations, the use of ZES was independently associated with a higher thrombosis rate (adjusted HR: 4; 95% CI: 1.1 to 13; p = 0.03). In a real practice setting, the incidence of thrombosis at 2 years with ZES and EES was low and quite similar. The incidence of very late thrombosis resulted lower than was reported in registries of first-generation DES. In the subset of bifurcations, the use of ZES significantly increased the risk of thrombosis. Copyright © 2010 American College of Cardiology Foundation. Published by Elsevier Inc.

    It is possible, and besides logic, the integration of programs such as the electric energy saving and an environmental management system. In managing the consumption and the demand of the electric service, there is an effect on the pollutants emitted for the generation. It is clear that the user in not, and can not be, responsible for the type of fuel used but its importance in project planning is out of question. In its turn the central point of the environmental management system, consists in identifying the main effects on the environment caused by its activities, services and products, as well as the current or potential control level of the enterprise on them.

    Hot dip galvanising sector has been evaluated in the frame of Spanish Dioxin Inventory to estimate their importance as a source of dioxins through their air emissions and wastes generated. The survey has been designed taken into account different pre-treatment surface preparation processes, mainly in degreasing steps. Air emissions, ashes and filter dusts have been sampled and toxic dioxins have been analysed. The results have been correlated with the characteristics of each installation. Dioxins releases to the air are very low when air control devices are used but they are concentrated in filter dusts that appear highly contaminated. Both air and dusts samples present the same dioxin homologue profile and different from ashes, which implies two different ways of formation where organic content, temperature and residence time should place important rules. The organic content could be originated, in some cases, by the degrease step absence, the low efficiency in grease removing and/or by the presence of organic inhibitors and additives used in picking steps.

    In the diverse research areas of the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (ININ) are different activities related to science and technology, one of great interest is the study and treatment of the collection and storage of radioactive waste. Therefore at ININ the draft on the simulation of the pollutants diffusion in the soil through a porous medium (third stage) has this problem inherent aspects, hence a need for such a situation is to generate the initial geometry of the physical system For the realization of the simulation method is implemented smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH). This method runs in DualSPHysics code, which has great versatility and ability to simulate phenomena of any physical system where hydrodynamic aspects combine. In order to simulate a physical system DualSPHysics code, you need to preset the initial geometry of the system of interest, then this is included in the input file of the code. The simulation sets the initial geometry through regular geometric bodies positioned at different points in space. This was done through a programming language (Fortran, C + +, Java, etc..). This methodology will provide the basis to simulate more complex geometries future positions and form. (Author)

    The plasma is the state of the matter but diffused in the nature. The sun and the stars big heaps of hot plasma can be considered. The external surface of the terrestrial atmosphere this recovered by a layer of plasma. All gassy discharge (lightning spark arch etc.) this related with the formation of plasma. This way, 99 percent of our environment this formed almost of plasma. It is denominated plasma to the ionized gas in the one which all or most of the atoms have lost one or several of the electrons that belonged him, becoming positive ions and free electrons. In the plasma certain physical characteristics exist as for their behavior like they are the collective movements the quasi neutrality, the Debye length, the uncertainty etc. All these behaviors make that the study of the plasma is complex. For this they exist technical of numeric simulation joined to the technological advance of big computers of more capacity and prosecution speed. The simulation techniques of particles are those where a numeric code is built based on a model or theory of a system that it is wanted to investigate. This way through the simulation the results are compared with those theoretical predictions based on an analytic model. The applications of the physics of the plasma are multiple however we focus ourselves in the interaction laser-plasma. Both finish decades of investigation in the interaction of lasers with plasma they have been carried out in laboratories of Europe, Japan, United States. This studies concern the propagation of intense light laser in dense plasma homogeneous, the radiation absorption in cold plasma and problems related with the generation of suprathermal electrons among others. Other areas of the physics of the plasma-laser interaction that it has been considerable attention is the broadly well-known field as parametric uncertainties induced instabilities by the light and that they include the dispersions for example stimulated Raman and Brillouin being able to

    This paper proposes the use of the technology for the transmission of direct current that provides a saving in losses in the order of 50% in transmitting the same power as the line energized with A.C., as well as having a larger transmission capacity, since the limiting factor in operating with D.C. is given by its thermal capacity. The cost of the terminal stations is high in comparison with that of A.C., therefore it should be compensated with the benefits of the D.C. transmission. The project proposal is as a first option, to utilize the 400 KV power lines of Carbon II-Lampazos-Escobedo as a single line in Direct Current, reducing by this means about 12% of the existing losses and increasing the existing transmission capacity from the coal power stations of Rio Escondido and Carbon II. For 1995 it will be Also available 2600 MW of generating capacity and practically four circuits of 400 KV to transmit power to the Monterrey Metropolitan Area, reaching this site approximately 1500 MW. It is proposed to transmit 750 MW through the D.C. line in bi-polar way. The investment will consist only in the two conversion stations, that for a power capacity of 750 MW will be in the order of 103 millions of dollars. This cost includes the switching equipment for A.C., filters for harmonics, banks of VARS to compensate for a unit power factor, transformers, converters, ground electrodes, communications, buildings, land site preparation, project management costs and the preliminary and engineering studies costs. These costs can be reduced in accordance with the detail studies, for instance: there is enough capacity in Vars in the generating units, the transmission is always one-way, the utilization of diodes instead of thyristors. For the established conditions, there is a reduction of 10 MW, a 23.82 million dollars saving, and besides a larger Also available transmission capacity in the order of 500 MW, additionally, when operating with direct current, equipment from the

    Full Text Available 1. In this essay, I explore an aspect of consequentialism that cannot altogether be ignored by rival theories of normative ethics, namely the range of the parties affected by current actions, and the importance of taking these parties into account. Even those rival theories that discount some interests need a clear understanding of the nature of the interests that they proceed to discount. 2. Affected interests include the future interests of actual people and human foetuses, plus those of actual non-human creatures, and also those of future people and other creatures who cannot yet be identified. Human actions will playa large role in determining not only which humans there will be but also which non-humans; for all of these we can considerably influence the quality of life, and thus have responsibilities for the foreseeable impacts of what we do. 3. Where we make a comparable and discoverable difference to people's quality of life, we are no less responsible if they are situated in the future than in the present. Further, if we accept that the foreseeable costs of a hundred years hence matter as much as costs of the same kind in the present, then the scale of current responsibilities turns out to be vast. Those who grant this are for practical purposes consequentialists already. 4. Donald Brown has shown how there is a strong case from human interests for stabilising greenhouse gas (GHG concentrations in the atmosphere, further strengthened by biocentric and/or ecocentric considerations. Pace Brown, a biocentric approach can weigh human interests (such as development ones against non-human interests, and need not forbid all species extinctions; but in fact this approach still cannot justify increases to GHG concentrations. Emissions required for Third World development need to be matched by reduced emissions in developed countries. Biocentric consequentialism thus generates defensible policies. Also, as Brown holds, developed countries

    Wind energy is nowadays one of the most cost-effective and practical options for electric generation from renewable resources. However, increased penetration of wind generation causes the power networks to be more depend on, and vulnerable to, the varying wind speed. Modeling is a tool which can provide valuable information about the interaction between wind farms and the power network to which they are connected. This paper develops a realistic characterization of a wind generator. The wind generator model is incorporated into an algorithm to investigate its contribution to the stability of the power network in the time domain. The tool obtained is termed dynamic power flow. The wind generator model takes on account the wind speed and the reactive power consumption by induction generators. Dynamic power flow analysis is carried-out using real wind data at 10-minute time intervals collected for one meteorological station. The generation injected at one point into the network provides active power locally and is found to reduce global power losses. However, the power supplied is time-varying and causes fluctuations in voltage magnitude and power flows in transmission lines. [Spanish] La energia eolica es hoy en dia una de las opciones mas efectivas y practicas para la generacion de electricidad a partir de energias renovables.

    The concept of solar energy is introduced, with its characteristics and scope as a source of electric generation. The functioning of the photovoltaic projects is covered, its main components, characteristics that define, types of systems and basic concepts that should be known when designing a photovoltaic system. An Plan Piloto de Generacion Distribuida para Autoconsumo (PPDGA) of the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad is described, this plan is until the moment the only option for power generate a distributed manner in Costa Rica. An energetic study and good profitability analysis, the parameters to be taken into account and the way of calculating and interpret the indicators most used in engineering projects such as the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) and Net Present Value (NPV) were investigated to determine how should be developed. The social and environmental advantages are mentioned for the installation of a project of this type, while it is true they are difficult advantages to monetize in the developing of a profitability study, also must be valued at the time for the decision to implement the project. Two cases were chosen as examples, one for small industry level and the other at the residential level. The necessary estimates were performed to determine the optimal power to be installed in order to obtain maximum profitability, photovoltaic systems were quoted at different companies, to know the real price of equipment in today's market and credit characteristics for this type projects were consulted. Also, an estimate of the increase in electric rates in Costa Rica was made, among other necessary parameters to calculate what will happen in the projects. Finally, projects behavior was simulated, indicators of economic viability studies were calculated and sensitivity and risk studies of the two proposed projects using the RETScreen software were made. As of financial analysis and sensitivity it was determined that for both examples the proposed

    In this paper, the generation of sequences of daily radiation values using a library of Markov transition matrices is analysed. The paper describes the fundamentals of the method employed and how sequences of daily radiation can be generated using as input monthly averaged values of the clearness index. The method is applied to the location where the Solar Energy Lab Weather Station of the University of Vigo (longitude 8 degree 41' 18'' O, latitude 42 degree 10' 9'' N) is placed. Radiation sequences are generated for the years 2002 and 2003 and the results are compared with measured radiation values. Results of statistical tests show a bad performance of the generation method for the location studied. (Author)

    The search of new alternating sources of energy is at the present time one of the primordial objectives to world level because of the global heating caused by the high emissions of CO{sub 2} at the atmosphere. In this sense the employment of H{sub 2} through the fuel cells offers a more viable alternative for the use of the energy coming from the connection H-H that can be appointed for use of mobile, industrial and homemade applications. However, to generate H{sub 2} in enough quantities is a great challenge at technological level for the necessity of to count with highly selective and efficient catalysts to low reaction temperatures as well as a source that comes from renewable resources. Under this context the methanol reformed in oxidizing atmosphere offers great ecological as energetics and industrial advantages; inside this investigation plane, the Cu seems to be one of the suitable candidates for this reaction due to its high capacity to generate H{sub 2}, besides the great potential of improvement in its physical-chemical properties when being worked in nano metric size and /or associated with other materials. On the other hand, it is known that the Ni addition improvement the catalytic properties because of a better material dispersion, what offers big possibilities of being applied in the H{sub 2} generation in situ by means of the methanol reformed reaction in oxidizing atmosphere; and that the conformation of bimetallic particles Cu/Ni presented high selectivity and catalytic activity for the reaction in question.

    The linear heat generation rates (LHGR) for a BWR type generic fuel rod, as function of the burnup that violate the thermomechanical limit of circumferential plastic deformation of the can (canning) in nominal operation in stationary state of the fuel rod are calculated. The evaluation of the LHGR in function of the burnt of the fuel, is carried out under the condition that the deformation values of the circumferential plastic deformation of the can exceeds in 0.1 the thermomechanical value operation limit of 1%. The results of the calculations are compared with the generation rates of linear operation heat in function of the burnt for this fuel rod type. The calculations are carried out with the FEMAXI-V and RODBURN codes. The results show that for exhibitions or burnt between 0 and 16,000 M Wd/tU a minimum margin of 160.8 W/cm exists among LHGR (439.6 W/cm) operation peak for the given fuel and maximum LHGR of the fuel (calculated) to reach 1.1% of circumferential plastic deformation of the can, for the peak factor of power of 1.40. For burnt of 20,000 MWd/tU and 60,000 MWd/tU exist a margin of 150.3 and 298.6 W/cm, respectively. (Author)

    The generation of radiolytic products as a result of alpha radiation in the surface of the spent fuel is a key process in order to understand how the it becomes degraded in repository conditions. The present work has established a radiolytic model based on a set of reactions involving fuel oxidation-dissolution and radiolytic products recombination. It also includes the decrease of the dose rates as the main alpha emitters decay away. Four cases, with varying parameters of the system, have been assessed. The results show a decrease in both the concentration of the radiolytic products in the gap water and the degradation of the fuel matrix. It has been estimated that in the period of the evaluation (10''6 years) up to 52% of the pellet is altered in the conservative cases, whereas only 11% is altered in the realistic cases. No significant differences were observed when the carbonates reactions were included in the system. (Author)

    At present, it is recognized that the advantage of the energy of the wind to generate electricity is an innovating activity of high technology that is being integrated to the electrical sectors of several countries in the context of the energy diversification. The basic concept of the wind power generators suggests simplicity; nevertheless, the enormous machines that nowadays turn the wind energy to electricity, are complex systems since they are integrated by aerodynamic, mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and electronic subsystems, whose development and integration have presented important challenges in the matter of investigation and technological development. It is for this reason that in the last 10 years several governments of industrialized countries and of some developing ones, have remarkably progressed in the restoration of elements of legislation, regulation, and fiscal measures that have opened and impelled the wind power market, in such a way that in those countries the wind power industry has become a very productive activity.

    The saponins and total lipids was measured in the variants of Barandales and Isluga of Chenopodium quinoa Willd and the mutants of both variants in the M{sub 2} lineage. These two variants were gamma radiated at different levels: 0, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400 and 500 Gy in the M1 generation. At the same time the mutants with favorable agronomic characteristics were selected. The samples were growth on the field (cultivated) and the seeds were recovered (harvested), measuring the emergence agronomic variables, plant height, density and seed yield. Lipids totals and saponins were measured in the seeds. The samples of radiated seeds with gamma-ray at different levels, were dried and grinded until to obtain a powder. The lipids was extracted with diethyl-ether, and in this solution was measured the total lipid content. The saponins were extracted in a later step, concentrated and precipitated. After the precipitation step the sapogenins were hydrolized and extracted with methyl alcohol. The extracts were centifugated and the solid material was dried and weighted. Finally, the measurement of the oleanolic acid was carried out by high pressure liquid chromatography. One conversion factor permits to relate this acid with the total saponin content. (Author).

    This work analyses the initiative of privatization of the Mexican Electric Industry and also it is showed the incoherence of this mistaken proposal. Along the same line is analysed tthe situation of the National Electric Sector and the working process for the distinct types of electric generation just as the syndical and labor situations. In consequence it is proposed an Independent Electrical Policy, which includes the integration of the Nationalized Electric Industry, the syndical union and the Unique Collective Contract. The purpose of this work is to contribute to the success of the electrical and nuclear struggle always maintaining in rising position the red flag of the proletariat. The author considers that the privatization means mercantilization of the human necessities. The privatization is not inevitable at condition of to exercise consequently the political actions necessary through alternatives includes: the worker control of production, research, and the National Electric strike.

    A description is presented of the different types of integrated gasifiers that at the moment are used in the synthesis gas production to be used, with different fuels in the generation of electricity in Combined Cycle. Three cases of application of integrated gasifiers are analyzed. The first it is the engine power upgrade of a Combined Cycle power plant to natural gas to burn fuel of bad quality in an integrated gasifier (CCGI). The second one examines the incorporation of a shift reactor in which the synthesis gas is transformed into CO{sub 2} and H{sub 2} which are used to move the turbine to gas, adapted for pure hydrogen. Finally is studied the amount of other by-products that can be obtained from these co-generation cycles such as CO{sub 2} to be used in secondary recovery of oil wells, N{sub 2} to be used in the fertilizer industry or in the proper oil production and H{sub 2} to be used in the oil industry or the generation with fuel cells. All the cases are studied in quantitative form, making the balance of mass and energy of each one of them. In order to give more practical sense to the calculations, the engineering data of the Valladolid Power station of Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) have been taken as base. This article provides a basic idea, but very practical, to estimate the fuel consumption of the different modes of arrangement of a CCGI power station, as well as the volumes of the different gases that can be produced and the modifications to the size of the equipment that is required.

    As a complement to the attached code 3D neutron-CIEMAT thermohydraulic added a module to simulate transient. Temporary kinetics is resolved by factoring flow in a spatial part and another storm. MCNP provides the reactivity and updated spatial function and COBRA-IV calculates the temperature distribution. Temporary dependence of amplitude is calculated using time delayed neutron Kinetic equations. As an example of application, examines a transient loss of flow in MYRRHA, a lead-cooled experimental reactor.

    In a lighting system the discharge lamps (fluorescent and high intensity discharge (HID)), ballast and controls are generating elements of harmonics. As a consequence of the tendency of saving energy, the use of electronic ballasts and controls that integrate dimmers, daylight and present sensors has increased in order to optimize the energy use. This paper presents the harmonics generation resulting from the fluorescent lamps operating different electronic ballasts as well as their electronic controls. Likewise, are also shown the effects caused by generation of harmonics components by the lighting system in the electric system that go from the voltage and current distortion, the presence of currents in the neutral conductor in balanced systems to the repercussions in the metering equipment such as watthour meters and the effects the lighting equipment suffer due to the presence of harmonics, such as the power factor decrease in ballasts that are of high power factor and the temperature increment in the magnetic type ballasts.

    On the 21 of January of 2003, at 20:06:36 hrs (Mexico center time) an earthquake occurred at the Pacific coast with a magnitude of 7.6 degrees in the Richter scale, whose epicenter was located near the state of Colima and it was felt in a large extent of the Mexican Republic. The earthquake caused numerous material damages in the structures (houses, churches, offices, etc) and vital lines, mainly in the infrastructure of the electrical sector of the region, leaving without electrical energy a large part of the nearby populations and some colonies of distant zones such as in Mexico City. The cause of the interruption of the electrical energy was due to the collapse of some of the equipment of 400 and 230 KV of the electrical transmission substations, among which are Manzanillo II and Colima II. With the experience acquired in the earthquake of October 9, 1995 in Manzanillo, in which also the facilities and equipment of the electrical substations were affected considerably, and as a part of the infrastructure project on the analysis of seismic risk of vital lines that is being developed at this moment at the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE), it was decided to inspect the electrical substations of the zone, where the greater damages in the facilities and equipment were reported, to analyze and to determine the main causes of their failure.

El sismo causo cuantiosos danos materiales en las estructuras (viviendas, iglesias, oficinas, etc) y lineas vitales, principalmente en la infraestructura del sector electrico de la region, dejando sin energia electrica a gran parte de las poblaciones cercanas y algunas colonias de zonas lejanas como es la ciudad de Mexico.

    Full Text Available Con el presente trabajo se pretende incorporar al estudio del aborto en México la perspectiva generacional y la distinción según el tipo de unión, dos dimensiones que no han sido consideradas en los estudios publicados hasta la fecha. Los datos utilizados corresponden a los de la Encuesta Nacional de la Dinámica Demográfica levantada en 1997. Entre los resultados obtenidos destaca el relativo a la reducción que experimentó el aborto entre las jóvenes (menores de 30 años de las generaciones nacidas a fines de los años cuarenta y aquellas que lo hicieron veinte años después, a fines de los sesenta. La distinción por tipo de unión nos permite atribuir esta disminución a las mujeres casadas, que casi exclusivamente eran quienes lo practicaban, y evaluar su impacto reductivo sobre la fecundidad en 1.2 nacimientos evitados en las generaciones mayores y 0.5 en las mas jóvenes. Las mujeres en uniones libres no superan los 0.6 nacimientos evitados en ninguna de las dos generaciones. Al aplicar el factor de separación propuesto, estas diferencias se traducen en relaciones de un aborto espontáneo por casi seis inducidos entre las casadas de más edad y solamente uno de cada dos entre las más jóvenes. Finalmente la distribución según el método anticonceptivo utilizado nos indica que las jóvenes en unión libre están más eficazmente protegidas que las casadas.

    Este trabajo explora la orientacion ideologica y conceptual que ha guiado el proceso de reformas economicas en America Latina, diferenciando la puesta en marcha de las medidas en dos generaciones. Partimos de la idea de que la transicion entre  generaciones  obedece a las reformas iniciales, producto de las experiencias del fracaso y oposicion que han tenido los ajustes. Se concluye que existio un giro conceptual, expresado por el paso del enfoque de las expectativas racionales, el cual sustento una politica de choques externos mediante medidas de ajuste y de reduccion del estado para disciplinar a los agentes economicos, al enfoque neoinstitucional, que concibe las reformas como un proceso de creacion de instituciones acordes para el buen funcionamiento del mercado, reconociendose ahora al Estado como mecanismo basico para reducir los costos de transaccion de dichos agentes en el mercado.

    Full Text Available Diversas producciones en América Latina señalan la emergencia, entre las y los jóvenes, de un discurso generacional de ruptura con los modelos y roles tradicionales de género y las representaciones estigmatizadoras sobre las sexualidades. Sin embargo, estos diagnósticos van acompañados de una mirada romántica que deposita en las nuevas generaciones las expectativas de cambio y progreso. A partir de la necesidad de pensar estos temas en el marco de procesos más amplios -como la relación entre herencia y experiencia-, me propongo analizar las representaciones que circulan entre jóvenes universitarios/as sobre la adopción de hijos por parte de parejas del mismo sexo. Tomados como "caso testigo", busco analizar estos discursos desde los estudios familiares feministas, para señalar algunos rasgos sobre los que se construye la discursividad generacional.

Los animales de la generación parental (P fueron alimentados con dieta control ad libitum. Las generaciones filiales (F1 y F2 recibieron el 75% del alimento consumido por un animal P de su misma edad y sexo. Cada animal fue radiografiado periódicamente entre los 20 y 100 días de edad. Sobre cada radiografía se relevaron longitud, ancho y altura de los componentes funcionales mayores (neurocráneo y esplacnocráneo y menores (neural anterior, medio y posterior, ótico, masticatorio, respiratorio y alveolar. Los cambios de tamaño de cada componente fueron evaluados por medio de índices volumétricos. Los datos se procesaron mediante pruebas de Kruskal-Wallis y Kolmogorov-Smirnov para k muestras. La desnutrición provocó retardo significativo del crecimiento de los componentes craneanos mayores y menores. El tamaño neurocraneano y esplacnocraneano asi como el de algunos componentes menores fue mayor en F1 que en F2, evidenciando un retardo acumulativo del crecimiento. La variación morfológica (tamaño y forma entre generaciones refleja una tendencia secular negativa.

    This presentation is oriented towards those who in this subject have experience in the design and equipment specification, plant projects, factory and field testing, operation or result analyses. An important fraction of the national energy supply, approximately 13%, is applied to the steam generation in the different aspects of the industrial activity, in the electrical industry of public service and in the commercial and services sector. The development of the national programs of energy efficiency verifies this when dedicating to this use of the energy important projects, some of them with support of the USAID. The measurement of the energy utilization or the efficiency of steam generators (or boilers) is made applying some procedure agreed by the parts and the one of greater acceptance and best known in Mexico and internationally is the ASME Power Test Code PTC 4.1 for Steam Generators. The purpose and formality in the determination of efficiency and of steam generation capacity behavior, thermal basic regime or fulfillment of guarantees, radically changes the exigencies of strict attachment to the PTC 4.1 This definition will determine the importance of the test method selected, the deviations and convened exceptions, the influence of the precision and the measurement errors, the consideration of auxiliary equipment, etc. An interpretation or incorrect application of the Test Code has lead and will lead to results and nonreliable decisions.

If people do not how to operate this kind of systems properly, they will use inadequate equipment that will cause an energy waste. In addition it is important to know: alternative methods to meet variable demands, an adapted system to pump water requirements in order to ensure the pump work in its pumping point, and the life cycle system cost for the energy saving in the long term.

    In this thesis tree patterns of superficial breakdown in polymeric insulator of Silicon Rubber are generated. Experimental arrangement rod-rod was used on the basis of norm ASTM D 2303-85. Pollution levels on the basis of norm IEC 507 were also used. The experimental values of Fractal Dimension for each case of pollution were reported. A self similar method called Box Counting for the fractal dimension calculus and for the self affine methods an R/S and Variogram were used. According to the results, it was concluded that the tree patterns of superficial electric breakdown in Silicon Rubber is self similar and its value does not depend on the degree of pollution, that is equivalent to the concentration of salt for liter of water or to the Equivalent Salt Deposition (ESDD), in the surface of an insulator. [Spanish] En el presente trabajo se inducen descargas electricas superficiales en un aislamiento polimerico de Hule Silicon, el arreglo experimental que se utilice es punta-punta con base en la norma ASTM D 2303-85 y los niveles de contaminacion con base en la norma IEC 507. Se reportan los valores experimentales de la Dimension Fractal para cada caso de contaminacion, se utilice el metodo auto similar de conteo de cuadros, para el calculo de la Dimension Fractal y para metodos auto afines se utilice analisis R/S y variograma. Con los resultados obtenidos se concluye que la trayectoria de la descarga electrica superficial en un polimero de Hule Silicon es auto similar y su valor no depende del grado de contaminacion, el cual es equivalente a la concentracion de gramos de sal por litro de agua o a la densidad de sal depositada (DESD), en la superficie de un aislador.

    In recent times every day one speaks more about power quality and about the losses produced by the tension and current distortion. The distortion in the electric network and the consumption tend to keep on increasing, and each day there will be the need of applying more resources to handle it inside a reasonable range. In this article the situation of the power quality is analyzed in the most general case and also simplified for special cases. On base on the distortion coefficients of tension and current a matrix is created where the harmonics coefficients of tension as well as the current appear in an organized form an all of the elements of that matrix are analyzed. Some topological rules are created in order to give the simplest orientation in the complex situation. The article is useful to supervise the power quality in all of the typical cases and establish a base for a more detailed analysis. [Espanol] En los ultimos tiempos cada dia mas se esta hablando sobre la calidad de la energia electrica (Power Quality) y sobre las perdidas provocadas con este factor.

En el articulo presentado se analiza la situacion de la calidad de energia en caso mas general y tambien simplificada para los casos especiales. A base de coeficientes de distorsion, de tension y corriente se crea una Matriz donde figuran tanto los coeficientes de armonicas de tension como de corriente en una forma ordenada y se analizan todos los elementos de esta matriz. Se crean algunas reglas topologicas para dar la orientacion mas simple en la situacion compleja. El articulo sirve para dar supervision a la calidad de energia en todos los casos tipicos y establecer una base para el analisis mas detallado.

    The physical design of electric substations involves a variety of activities, such as developing, reviewing and performing modifications to different design proposals, estimating costs and producing documents to be integrated into an executive project. These activities are usually conducted at the Distribution Divisions of the Federal Electric Commission (CFE) through two separate processes: the development of engineering plans with computer-aided design software (CAD) and volumetric calculations for the initial budget using conventional spreadsheets. The documents are manually developed on an individual basis, without the existence of any functions to allow for automatically updating the design modifications of any of the plans. The corresponding initial budget becomes a lengthy and laborious process with the likelihood of inconsistencies among the documents. In order to optimize the design process for the public and electromechanical works of electric substations (ES) in a three-dimensional (3D) graphic environment, the IIE's Management of Process Supervision, in coordination with the CFE Distribution Subdivision, developed the System for the Design of Electric Substation Distribution (SDESD). This system makes use of the advantages of CAD3D technology to develop detail engineering, cost engineering to calculate initial budgets and virtual reality for three-dimensional interactive navigation. It is worth mentioning that this system is currently in the implementation phase at the CFE Distribution Subdivision. This article briefly describes the main stages in the development of the project, as well as the functioning and principal components of the system.

    The electric utility companies worldwide suffer, in greater or lesser degree, electrical energy losses. A great percentage of these losses is mostly due to illegal appropriations of energy. The consumers, by means of illicit practices such as clandestine connections and alteration of the operation of electricity meters, carry out the energy robbery. In order to try to alleviate the problematic of electric energy losses, in their majority by illicit, the electric utility companies have implemented one or more actions. Among the most important are: Visual inspection of the metering facilities. Its purpose is to verify the condition of the traditional protections of the metering installations, such as the seals and safety rings. Detection Equipment: These are recorders of energy consumption and of faults in conductors and are used to detect illicit connections and deviations in the consumption patterns and to the electrical energy connection or to the secondary distribution network. Statistical analysis of consumption: Many electric facility companies have adapted their processing consumption reading systems to detect deviations in the of consumption patterns of their clients. This could correspond to abnormal situations. Since this country is not extraneous to the problematic of energy losses, in the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas it was developed a System of Measurement and Detection of Losses of Electrical Energy (SIM-IV) as a result of the knowledge of the problematic obtained from the projects in the metering area and of the interaction through work meetings with personnel of the Comision Federal de Electricidad and of Luz y Fuerza del Centro (LyFC), in which concepts of advanced technology were applied for the measurement of electrical variables. The SIM-IV is a system oriented to the metering of consumption and the detection of robberies of electrical energy caused by clandestine connections and non-allowed interventions to the energy meters.

    The authors have presented in seminars XVIII and XIX of ATPAE papers on subjects on Demand in Steam Systems and on the Supply of Consulting Services, respectively, and this paper is a contribution that retaking both subjects, tries to motivate the interest in generally underestimated areas of opportunity in energy programs. It is intention of this paper to invite the spokesmen to this Seminar and of the futures ones to deepen and to offer continuity and pursuit of an event to the nest one, on subjects of permanent interest and to incorporate contributions of new experiences, criteria and technologies. One exhorts to professionals and technicians interested in the rational and economic administration of the energy to deepen into the real conditions, abilities and capacities of the equipment in the steam power plants and to the study of better options of its use, adaptation and operation. In order to exemplify the previous matter two cases of industrial plants in which real and satisfactorily and economically solved problems, were very different from the ones that the proprietors of those facilities originally raised when soliciting the support of consulting services. Notice is made that in both cases capacity problems were contemplated, after the study and recommended actions it was demonstrated they handle their demands without augmenting the installed capacity, with avoided investments and increased efficiency. Finally the determinant is emphasized that can be the function of the consultant in the approach of his services and the direction towards orientation to right solutions. [Spanish] Los autores han expuesto en los seminarios XVIII y XIX de ATPAE trabajos sobre temas de Demanda en Sistemas de Vapor y Prestacion de Servicios de Consultoria, respectivamente y la presente es una contribucion que retomando ambos temas, pretende motivar el interes en areas de oportunidad generalmente subestimadas en programas de energia. Es intencion de este trabajo invitar a los ponentes de este seminario y los futuros a profundizar y ofrecer continuidad y seguimiento de un evento al siguiente sobre temas de interes permanente e incorporar aportaciones de nuevas experiencias, criterios y tecnologias. Se exhorta a profesionales y tecnicos interesados en la administracion racional y economica de la energia a profundizar en las condiciones, habilidades y capacidades reales del equipamiento en plantas de vapor y al estudio de mejores opciones de su utilizacion, adaptacion y operacion. Para ejemplificar lo anterior se exponen dos casos de plantas industriales en que los problemas reales y resueltos satisfactoria y economicamente, fueron muy diferentes de los que los propietarios de esas instalaciones originalmente plantearon al solicitar el apoyo de servicios de consultoria. Se hace notar que en ambos casos se contemplaban problemas de capacidad, despues del estudio y acciones recomendadas quedo demostrado poder manejar sus demandas sin incrementar la capacidad instalada, con inversiones evitadas e incremento en eficiencia. Por ultimo se enfatiza lo determinante que puede ser la funcion del consultor en el enfoque de sus servicios y la orientacion hacia soluciones acertadas.

    The article provides an introduction to the historical development of water flotation equipment. Its earliest application was in paper-making factories where it was used to recover cellulose fibres. As it was improved, it was employed to treat waste waters with hydraulic loads of 4,8 m''3/m''2+h. Further improvements gave it a circular shape with the flocculation in the middle and a highly controlled radial flow and the speed increased to 5.4 m''3/m''2*/h. Recently, Ecomac, a flotation system whose performance is close to the ideal. has been developed. In this system the fluid is immobile, as the advanced design of the internal conduits eliminates turbulence by distributing the liquid right across the annular section of the tank and feeds compartments of decreasing cross sections. This arrangement allows it to cope with hydraulic loads of 8.4 m''3/m''2*h. Practical performance results obtained in the mechanical,food (yoghurt, preserves, wine) and textile dyeing industries are given. (Author)

    In this work the experimental methodology developed to carry out tests of the electrical energy of refrigerators consumption as norm NOM-015-ENER-2002 is described. The tests were made in the Laboratory of Controlled Environment of the Iztapalapa Unit of the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana to a sample of old domestic refrigerators in operation. The results found show that the consumption of electrical energy of refrigerators of more than 10 years of age can be higher than 60% of what a modern refrigerator of high efficiency would consume, or 30% higher if the refrigerator was made between 1997 and 2002. With these results it is sustained, in a more complete way, the evaluation of the saving potential of the national electrical energy by the substitution of old domestic refrigerators by modern, as reported in a previous work. [Spanish] En este trabajo se describe la metodologia experimental desarrollada para efectuar pruebas del consumo de energia electrica a refrigeradores conforme la norma NOM-015-ENER-2002. Las pruebas se realizaron en el Laboratorio de Ambiente Controlado de la Unidad Iztapalapa de la Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana a una muestra de refrigeradores domesticos antiguos en operacion. Los resultados encontrados muestran que el consumo de energia electrica de refrigeradores de mas de 10 anos de antig�edad puede superior al 60% de lo que consumiria un refrigerador moderno de alta eficiencia, o superior en un 30% si el refrigerador fue fabricado entre 1997 y 2002. Con estos resultados se sustenta de manera mas completa la evaluacion del potencial de ahorro de energia electrica nacional por substitucion de refrigeradores domesticos antiguos por modernos reportado en un trabajo anterior.

    To understand the regulation system of the Spanish electricity market it is first necessary to understand on the one hand the system of tariffs and prices, and on the other the organization of the market for high voltage distribution. This article is concerned with this second aspect and traces its history from 1944, this is because before that date it was not possible to speak of a truly national market, but rather only of regional monopolies. In the 1940s, with Franco's new political regime, and the development of the Spanish electricity sector, it became necessary to completely rethink business strategies in relation to competition and cooperation, as well as the regulatory function of the state. In the 1950s, the main feature of the sector was the system of business self-regulation permitted by the state. Throughout the remaining years of Franco's government state intervention was particularly focussed on the subject of tariffs, but with the onset of democracy the state was to involve itself in the transmission network as well. A debate began as to whether it should be run by a private or public operator. In this dispute were ranged, on the one hand, the economic policy concepts of the major parties (PSOE and PP), and against them the strategic interests of the companies. Although the high voltage transmission network was nationalized by the state in the mid-1980s, establishing a 'traditional' model of regulation, the 1990s saw the triumph of a market-based regulation, strongly influenced by the dominant ideas in the European Union, which has converted Red Electrica into a private company. Currently the TSO (Transmission System Operators) model has been extended to Portugal and has entered into competition-cooperation with the other models of the European electricity market. (author)

    The enormous electric energy consumption in buildings represents an important area of saving opportunities. The design of installations without advanced technical illumination criteria, the absence of standardization over energy efficiency, the lack of observation of the existing standards and guides, the continuous load growth in existing installations and the lack of appropriate maintenance, are some of the causes of the inefficient use of electric energy in buildings. Although the problems, and consequently the solutions, are exclusive for each unit, some of the former are frequently repeated. In this paper the problems found along more than 40 audits conducted in large buildings of different types in Mexico city are commented.

    The electric utility companies worldwide suffer, in greater or lesser degree, electrical energy losses. A great percentage of these losses is mostly due to illegal appropriations of energy. The consumers, by means of illicit practices such as clandestine connections and alteration of the operation of electricity meters, carry out the energy robbery. In order to try to alleviate the problematic of electric energy losses, in their majority by illicit, the electric utility companies have implemented one or more actions. Among the most important are: Visual inspection of the metering facilities. Its purpose is to verify the condition of the traditional protections of the metering installations, such as the seals and safety rings. Detection Equipment: These are recorders of energy consumption and of faults in conductors and are used to detect illicit connections and deviations in the consumption patterns and to the electrical energy connection or to the secondary distribution network. Statistical analysis of consumption: Many electric facility companies have adapted their processing consumption reading systems to detect deviations in the of consumption patterns of their clients. This could correspond to abnormal situations. Since this country is not extraneous to the problematic of energy losses, in the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas it was developed a System of Measurement and Detection of Losses of Electrical Energy (SIM-IV) as a result of the knowledge of the problematic obtained from the projects in the metering area and of the interaction through work meetings with personnel of the Comision Federal de Electricidad and of Luz y Fuerza del Centro (LyFC), in which concepts of advanced technology were applied for the measurement of electrical variables. The SIM-IV is a system oriented to the metering of consumption and the detection of robberies of electrical energy caused by clandestine connections and non-allowed interventions to the energy meters.

    In Mexico, the incident solar radiation is high enough, that encourage its use both to produce process heat or electricity trough solar cells in autonomous configurations or grid. In European countries with substantially lower irradiation levels such as Germany or Spain. PV Grid Connected Systems (PVGCS) are a mature technology that is widely used in these countries, mainly due to tax incentives and preferential feed in tariffs schemes. Of the benefits that electricity production modality provides both the user and to the electricity grid and also the technical benefits for the utilities for incorporating distributed generation at its distribution system. In Mexico, more and more people are motivated to invest in this type of technology. This article analyzes the particular case of a user that is classified as High Consumption Domestic Customer (HCDC) in the city of La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico, who owns a single phase of 6 kWp PVGCS installed on the roof of her house. The reported results in this paper come from data analyzed by the Electrical Research Institute (IIE) for a three year monitoring period. The paper includes meteorological information, energy and power balances, maximum power, standard production, system losses, efficiency of the photovoltaic generator and inverters, among other performance information. The document highlights the impact that the PV system on electricity consumption user billing from the utility, and some recommendations are provided on what must be done in order get out from the HCDC classification and the economic benefits of it.

    construccion es la Central Hidroelectrica La Yesca, el cual concluira a finales de 2012 y consiste en dos generadores electricos de 375 MW, 17 kV. Sera el segundo en potencia y el tercero en generacion electrica en el sistema. De acuerdo con las normas nacionales e internacionales, debe efectuarse un conjunto de pruebas estaticas y dinamicas en estos generadores antes de la puesta en servicio, para asegurar su operacion apropiada. La prueba de resistencia de alto voltaje del devanado del estator, la prueba de corto circuito subito trifasico y el calculo de eficiencia energetica son algunas de las pruebas mas importantes por realizar en un nuevo generador electrico. Estas pruebas son dificiles de efectuar en sitio debido a la capacidad del equipo requerido, por lo que muy pocas companias en el mundo pueden conducirlas.

  20. La Virgen de La Dolorosa y la lucha por el control de la socialización de las nuevas generaciones en el Ecuador del 1900

    Full Text Available LA “VIRGEN DE LA DOLOROSA” ET LA LUTTE POUR LE CONTROLE DE LA SOCIALISATION DES NOUVELLES GÉNÉRATIONS. Cet article décrit l'apparition de la dévotion à la Dolorosa (la Vierge des Douleurs en 1906 en Équateur, la même année que celle de la séparation entre l'Église et l'État et de l’instauration de l'école laïque. L'argument essentiel de cette analyse est que cet événement ne doit pas être compris comme une réaction spontanée d’une église en crise, mais plutôt comme le résultat d’un processus graduel de transformation institutionnelle qui commença bien avant la période libérale et qui avait comme objectif de maintenir le contrôle de la socialisation des futures générations et des normes sociales après l’établissement de l’État libéral. Este trabajo analiza el surgimiento de la devoción a la Virgen de la Dolorosa en 1906 en el contexto de la disputa por la Ley de educación laica y la nueva Constitución que proclama la separación de la Iglesia del Estado en el Ecuador. El argumento que trata de sostener es que más que una reacción espontánea de una Iglesia en crisis frente al Estado liberal, esta devoción y su relación con la propuesta educativa de la Iglesia en el debate sobre la educación laica, son producto de un proceso de transformación institucional de la iglesia, iniciado antes de la revolución liberal, por medio de la cual ésta trata de mantener el control sobre los procesos de socialización de las futuras generaciones para garantizar cierta influencia en la construcción de las normas sociales de la sociedad inaugurada por el régimen liberal. THE VIRGIN OF SORROWS AND BATTLE OVER THE CONTROL OF SOCIALIZATION AND EDUCATION IN ECUADOR. This is a study on the emergence of the devotion to the Virgin of Sorrows in 1906 in Ecuador in the midst of the battle between liberals and conservative over laic education and the disestablishment of the Church. The main argument conveyed is that the

    The applied technology, supported by the analysis, the experimentation and the scientific observation, has demonstrated its effectiveness in the modernization of hundreds of industrial and commercial processes, of communication and services, as well as of the materials and methodologies used for the protection of diverse equipment and processes; from the protection in systems and equipment in high tension to systems that handle very low energy, among them are included electronic and digital devices. Nevertheless, fundamental laws like the Ohm's Law, the gravity law or the universal gas law exist that, although they were discovered many years ago, still are effective and their validity provides invaluable elements for the development of new methods, technological processes and developments. One of the most relevant cases than amalgamates the application of fundamental criteria and the development of new technologies and its application in the so-called no conventional protective devices, constitute the protection against the effect of electrical storms in buildings and structures. The worldwide application of these devices has generated skepticism of a great part of the scientific community, diverse reactions among the users and a firm position on the part of the manufacturers so that these technologies are included in international standards. The objective of this article is to offer the reader the basic information on the beginnings of the protection, the evolution that the protection methods against electrical storms have had since the XVIII century, the application of the fundamental criteria of protection in structures or modern buildings and their content, as well as the situation that prevails at the moment in the committees of the diverse national and international normative organizations with respect to the inclusion of the new technologies in the design guides.

    In this work it is presented for the first time in the literature the solution of the problem of the planning the expansion of an electrical transmission network (PERTE) with the use of the Evolutionary Programming. The evolutionary programming is a stochastic method of optimization with similar characteristics to the generic algorithms, but different. During the development of this work it is shown what each one of these two heuristic methods of optimization consist of. Additionally, the main characteristics of other two heuristic methods known in the literature are described (Tabu Searching and Simulated Annealing). These two methods together with the genetic algorithms and decomposition of Benders have also been used to solve the problem of planning PERTE. The operation of the proposed algorithm of evolutionary programming was tested in two networks of electrical transmission. The first case of test is a system which is known in the literature. The second case is a representative system of the electrical transmission network of Central America. The results obtained improve all the results shown when applying different heuristic methods of optimization (genetic algorithms, simulated annealing and Tabu searching) to solve the same problem. [Espanol] En este trabajo se presenta por primera vez en la literatura, la solucion del problema de la planeacion de expansion de una red de transmision electrica (PERTE) con el uso de la Programacion Evolucionaria. La programacion evolucionaria es un metodo estocastico de optimizacion con caracteristicas similares a los algoritmos geneticos, pero diferente. Durante el desarrollo de este trabajo se muestra en que consiste cada uno de estos dos metodos heuristicos de optimizacion. Ademas, se describen las caracteristicas principales de otros dos metodos heuristicos conocidos en la literatura (busqueda Tabu y Recorrido Simulado). Estos dos metodos juntos con los algoritmos geneticos y descomposicion de Benders tambien han sido

    In this paper are presented the results obtained in the measurement of magnetic losses in metallic conduits in electric installations. The losses for parasitic currents and by hysteresis were obtained in different conditions of magnetic density, caused by the net current resulting from the sum of all the currents of all the conductors that travel along the conduit. These currents are named differential currents, and the conditions in which they appear in the electric installations are described. The magnetic induction phenomenon that occurs in metallic conduit is briefly described and the basic concepts that describe it. A theoretical-experimental methodology is offered to quantify the energy losses by parasitic currents and by the metal magnetization in these metallic conduits. At the same time, the impact of these differential currents impact in the reactance of the electric installation is quantified. The obtained results for twelve conduits of different diameters and different wall thickness are shown. A comparison analysis is made with the reported results in a previous article, where the losses were estimated by means of the temperature rise measurement of the metallic wall.

    In order to be able to carry out studies but next to the operation of the reactor of the CNLV with the program FCS-II of the package of codes for the fuel management FMS, it was generated a 'collapsed' nuclear bank integrating the generated information with RECORD of each one of those assemblies of the initial load and of the first recharge. To generate the bank, the different ones RECORD 'cells' that compose each assemble were 'collapsed' to an alone one, representing this, to the one complete assemble in what refers to the fuel bars distribution and enrichments. The one collapsed of each assemble it is made averaging the content of UO{sub 2} and Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3} in each fuel bar by the volumetric fraction occupied by each axial section of the fuel bar where the content of UO{sub 2} and Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3} were constant, by this way the x-y fuel bars arrangement is conserved but a representative fuel cell of all the assemble is obtained. Of the five different assemblies that will be load in the reactor of the CNLV (3 of the initial load and 2 of the first recharge), only 4 were collapsed; the remaining one to be totally formed by natural uranium it was not necessary to collapse. From the collapsing process new enrichment values in U-235 and in content of Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3} for each fuel bar, for what according to the generation procedure of nuclear information it was generated the required information by RECORD for each fuel bar with Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3} with the ECLIPSE code. Once generated this information it was proceeded to generate the homogenized nuclear information, with RECORD, for the whole cell. According to the requirements of nuclear information of FCS-II, the nuclear Information generated with RECORD only was of the defined type as series 1 in the procedure of generation of nuclear banks '6F3/1/CN029/90/P1'; that which means that only it was generated nuclear information as function of the burnup of the fuel and of

    In the present paper a theoretical approach is given together with the description of the experimental technique for electrical conductivity measurements of semiconductors in frequency range of 10 GHz, corresponding to a wavelength of {lambda}= 3 cm. It is shown, that the sample conductivity, measured without the need of electrical contacts, Is practically identical with results obtained by direct current methods. The potential use of the method for dielectric measurements in samples of general shape is included in the discussion. Given that the local electrical field is known only in bodies of ellipsoidal shape, one has to apply approximation methods for sample shapes of practical relevance (cylinders, cubes, disks). Finally, the measuring range and corresponding errors are explained on the base of measurements realized with silicon samples. [Spanish] En el presente trabajo se desarrolla la teoria junto con la descripcion del arreglo experimental para la medicion de la conductividad electrica en muestras semiconductoras, utilizando un campo de microondas de {lambda}= 3 cm, correspondiente a una frecuencia n de 10 GHz. Se demuestra que la conductividad electrica medida sin la necesidad de contactos electricos es practicamente identica con resultados obtenidos por el metodo comun utilizando corriente directa (d.c.). Se incorpora en la discusion ademas el potencial del metodo para el estudio de propiedades dielectricas en muestras de geometria general. Dado que solamente en cuerpos con geometria elipsoidal se conoce bien el campo electrico local, y con esto el momento bipolar inducido, para muestras de geometrias mas practicas (cilindros, cubos, discos) se acude a metodos de aproximacion. Finalmente, se discute el rango de mediciones y errores, y se presentan mediciones concretas, utilizando muestras de silicio.

    The thermodynamic data of the water are of extreme importance in all of the branches of science and technology; the facilitate the understanding of the natural Earth processes. Nevertheless, for the electrical industry the water plays a very important role during the generation of electrical energy process. Different heat sources such as coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear fuel or the geothermal heat boil the water that forms the steam used to move the turbines. Consequently, the steam tables (the thermodynamic water data) are vital to model thermal and mass transference and physical-chemical processes during the generation of electrical energy. [Spanish] Los datos termodinamicos del agua son de suma importancia en todas las ramas de la ciencia y tecnologia, ellos facilitan el entendimiento de los procesos naturales de la Tierra. Sin embargo, para la industria electrica el agua juega un papel muy importante durante el proceso de generacion de energia electrica.

    Full Text Available El contrato psicológico, que hace parte de los estudios del comportamiento organizacional, concierne a los vínculos que se construyen entre personas y organizaciones más allá de los compromisos explícitos (objetivos pactados oficialmente. Cobra vigencia en tanto se reconoce que el desempeño depende de aspectos ligados con la subjetividad. Este artículo presenta, desde una perspectiva psicosocial, los resultados de un estudio que propuso caracterizar el contrato psicológico de empleados de dos generaciones en una misma organización del sector bancario. Partiendo de un abordaje cualitativo, el método se fundamentó en entrevistas semiestructuradas, procesadas con análisis de contenido. Los resultados muestran que los empleados antiguos han configurado contratos psicológicos de tipo equilibrado (basados en la reciprocidad, mientras que para los empleados recientes son transaccionales (tipificados como de bajo compromiso, aunque en ambos casos las labores, los términos jurídicos, la compensación y la oportunidad de carrera son los mismos. Estos hallazgos sugieren que (en concordancia con recientes aproximaciones desde la psicología social y la sociología del trabajo las nuevas generaciones de trabajadores, que han ido ingresando al mercado laboral a partir de la implementación de políticas de trabajo flexible, están afrontando las nuevas realidades con responsabilidad, preparación y bajo involucramiento, al tiempo que procuran alcanzar mejores condiciones de estabilidad para sí mismos en una o varias organizaciones

    algorithm in a digital program, this was proved in a personal computer applying it to IEEE transmission systems evaluated with other methods, among them one of 140 buses and 199 transmission lines. The results as far as reliability indexes compared with the other methods were very satisfactory and promising as far as required CPU time and memory for larger systems. [Spanish] En esta tesis se ataca el problema de la Evaluacion de la Confiabilidad de los Sistemas de Transmision de Energia Electrica para fines de su planeacion integral. Una vez descrito el problema se presentan los indices que miden la confiabilidad de los sistemas electricos de potencia. Despues se describen los metodos para evaluar las redes de transmision, como el de Enumeracion de Contingencias, el Monte Carlo, el de Markov y los metodos para sistemas complejos como el de Cortes Minimos. Este ultimo se desarrolla ampliamente por las ventajas que presenta su aplicacion en la planeacion de redes grandes y complejas. El metodo de cortes minimos consta de dos grandes pasos: Determinar los cortes minimos para los puntos de carga y calcular los indices de confiabilidad en base a los cortes minimos. Los algoritmos convencionales para la determinacion de cortes minimos consideran un problema por cada punto de carga en forma independiente pasando por una determinacion de caminos minimos. En este tipo de algoritmos el tiempo de CPU y el espacio en memoria requeridos crecen exponencialmente para el caso de sistemas de transmision grandes, lo que representa una fuerte restriccion para su aplicacion. Para resolver este problema se establecio una metodologia en la que se modela el sistema por medio de un grafo y se determinan los cortes minimos con un algoritmo basado en la construccion de ciclos en el grafo dual. Con estos cortes se evalua la conexidad y capacidad de la red, obteniendose los indices de confiabilidad para cada bus y para el sistema. Estos indices se calculan con la representacion equivalente para

    It is said that when an energy saving and efficient use of energy program is implemented it must be a business for three: the user, the society and the electric utility. In respect to the user, his decision making is quite simple: is it cheaper or more expensive for me?. Unfortunately in many cases we want a very short return time or the money needed for the initial investment is not available. For instance, and incandescent bulb is several times less expensive than a compact fluorescent lamp, but if we make the calculation on the life-time and on the power consumption reduction of the compact fluorescent lamp, we can conclude that this one is more economic. The benefit for the society can be seen under many different aspects, being the most important the natural resources conservation and the environment. From the stand point of the utility the heavier possible factors are the postponement of the investments and the system reliability. When some of the programs of the Demand Side Management (DSM) are applied, the utilities support or promote non financially profitable but improve their image before the user, on creating a consciousness in the saving and in the efficient use of energy: a short term investment is made and a long term revenue is obtained. For this reason for an optimum selection and implementation the saving and the efficient use of electric energy measures a detailed knowledge of the consumption way is required. In this paper the importance of monitoring the way the different type of users employ the energy in order to make up decisions on DSM programs in many different scenarios: cities, type of users, income level, etc. is shown.

    The ``Programa Universitario de Energia (PUE)`` (University Energy Program) of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) through the project ``Ecologic Control of The University Campus`` has the objective of instrumenting policies for the rational use of the electric energy in the UNAM installations. The PUE has performed a series of activities aimed at the establishment of an integral program for the electric energy management in the UNAM. This program has to consider the measures for energy saving (MES) of general kind and to promote a series of specific measures to be adequated and implemented for each one of the departments. The success in establishing a series of MES compels to quantify its effects, to register and to analyze them to be in position of enhancing them, since it must be kept in mind that something that can not be measured can not be improved. For this purpose the PUE is developing a continuous monitoring pilot network of electric energy with local and remote access and an automated metering system. Two monitoring schemes are experimented, one commercial metering equipment and another one with own metering technology. In this paper the characteristics of the proposed monitoring schemes are described.

    Full Text Available En el contexto de la pregunta por el destino de la Teoría Crítica, la discusión entre Axel Honneth y Jürgen Habermas sobre el cambio en el paradigma de la Filosofía Política y Social con la tesis "de la comunicación al reconocimiento" gira aquí en torno a una reconstrucción crítica de la filosofía de Immanuel Kant, un Kant ´moderado´ en un modelo ´explicativo´ o ´hermenéutico´, y así ´irrebasable´ del progreso moral, rompiendo su sistema, y un Kant ´destrascendentalizado´, apto para fundamentar la necesidad de un diálogo entre la razón y la fe. ¿Por qué Kant y no Georg Hegel, central este último para los dos filósofos alemanes en su superación de las aporías de la primera generación de la Teoría Crítica? Pero ¿dónde queda Karl Marx, tan importante para los fundadores de la Escuela de Frankfurt? Y ¿no había exigido Habermas en 2009 con motivo del aniversario de su discípulo, que Honneth, después de su viaje de Marx a Hegel, hiciera el necesario regreso? De tal manera que en esta vuelta, Honneth trajera en su equipaje lo rescatado del Idealismo Alemán. Así la historia de la Teoría Crítica queda inconclusa.In the context of the question for the fate of the Critical Theory, the debate between Axel Honneth and Jürgen Habermas on the change in the paradigm of Social and Political Philosophy with the thesis "from communication to recognition" here revolves around a critical reconstruction of Immanuel Kant’s philosophy, a ‘moderated’ Kant in an ‘explanatory’ or ‘hermeneutic’ model, and so ‘unsurpassable’ moral progress, breaking his system, and a ‘distranscended’ Kant, suitable to substantiate the need for a dialogue between reason and faith. Why Kant and not Georg Hegel, the latter being central for the two German philosophers in their overcoming of the aporias of the first generation of the Critical Theory? But where it remains Karl Marx, so important to the founders of the Frankfurt

    Full Text Available La sucesión generacional en una empresa es un proceso dinámico en que los papeles y tareas del predecesor y del sucesor evolucionan de manera independiente y en paralelo, hasta que se cruzan y se superponen, encaminando la empresa a la sustentabilidad. El presente documento reflexiona sobre la relación entre sucesión generacional y sustentabilidad en dichas empresas, analizando una muestra de conveniencia de nueve empresas familiares restauranteras en San Cristóbal de las Casas (Chiapas, México, y realizando un comparativo cualitativo a partir de los indicadores de las variables de estudio. Adicionalmente, se examina la situación de las empresas familiares en México y su relevancia e importancia para la economía. Se encontró que la importancia de la empresa familiar, tanto a nivel nacional como local, y el amplio desarrollo de la actividad restaurantera en San Cristóbal de las Casas, motivan a las familias dedicadas a esta actividad a continuar sus negocios y a transmitirlos a las futuras generaciones para ser sustentables, ya que, de acuerdo con lo que reporta el Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía (INEGI, nueve de diez empresas familiares que se crean no llegan a los dos años de vida, lo cual constituye un índice de mortalidad extremo.         La unión familiar al interior de la empresa es el vínculo ideal para la sustentabilidad de la misma, ya que de ella depende una exitosa sucesión generacional que propicie que la empresa familiar perdure en sus actividades.

    The projects for the energy saving in hotels represent a great opportunity to reduce the operation costs in the demand and consumption of electrical energy, since the existing facilities can take advantage of new technologies in illumination, air conditioning, refrigeration and heating. By their constitution, the hotels work the year around uninterruptedly and must provide all type of services to the guests and working personnel, which originates that they consume great amounts of energy in air conditioning, lightning, laundry, etc., since the prestige of the installation depends on it.

    In this article it is explained what is known as differential currents and the conditions in which they appear in the electrical installations. A short outline is made on the magnetic induction phenomenon that appears in metallic conduits, due to the circulation of differential currents along the inside of the tube and that in turn produces energy losses in the form of heat, that is dissipated in the tube surrounding environment. The results of the measurements performed in the laboratory are shown in order to quantify the energy losses in the metallic conduit. It was found that for certain conditions these losses are significant. [Espanol] En este articulo se explica lo que se entiende por corrientes diferenciales y se describen las condiciones en las que estas aparecen en las instalaciones electricas. Se plantea brevemente el fenomeno de induccion magnetica que aparece en las tuberias metalicas, debido a la circulacion de corrientes diferenciales por el interior del tubo y que a su vez produce perdidas de energia en forma de calor, que se disipa en el ambiente que rodea al tubo. Se muestran los resultados de las mediciones que se llevaron a cabo en laboratorio para poder cuantificar las perdidas en tuberia metalica conduit. Se encontro que para ciertas condiciones estas perdidas son significativas.

The selected mathematical models represent the cycle boiler-superheater. These models were taken from the MICROTERM-300 modular simulator, which contains the simplified models of the process (feedwater, boiler, turbines, etc.) of the thermoelectric plant Francisco Perez Rios from Tula Hidalgo, Mexico. This work was developed in the following stages: 1.- The selection of an appropiate numerical integration method to solve simultaneously the algebraic and differential equations of the equipment conforming the cycle boiler-superheater. 2.- The adaptation of individual mathematical models to allow changes in their geometry, operating conditions and different forms of connection. Also, this models were modified to have a representation of the equations to allow their analysis and an efficient organization to get their solution. 3.- The application of two computer-aided tools to trace possible coding errors in the mathematical models: a) A syntax analyzer which detect assignation and reference errors of variables. b) A structural analyzer to obtain the structural matrix, which relate the variables and the equations in a model. During this stage some improvements to these computer-aided tools were suggested. 4.- The individual testing of each mathematical model in steady and dynamic state in order to: a) Validate the mathematical models. b) Analyze the behavior of the variables of the mathematical models with different parameters, different operating conditions and different initial conditions. 5.- Lastly, the coupling between equipment analyzed to form an equipment`s network what represent the cycle boiler-superheater and the testing in steady and dynamic state in orden to: a) Observe the behavior of the variables during the coupling of two or more equipment. b) Observe the characteristics what present the numerical integration method to solve the equipment`s network and analyze the obtained numerical results. In this work the individual mathematical models were analyzed and adapted to operate the equipment with different operating conditions, changes in their geometry and different connections with others equipment. Later an equipment`s network was built to represent the cycle boiler-superheater and a numerical method was chosen to solve the equipment`s network in steady and dynamic state. [Espanol] Este trabajo presenta la construccion, analisis y solucion de una red de equipos en regimen estable y dinamico, a partir de: a) Los modelos matematicos de equipos individuales y de sus especificaciones geometricas. b) Las interconexiones topologicas entre los equipos. c) La seleccion de un metodo numerico para resolver simultaneamente los modelos matematicos. Los modelos matematicos seleccionados representan el ciclo caldera-sobrecalentador. Estos modelos fueron tomados del simulador modular MICROTERM-300, el cual contiene los modelos simplificados de los procesos (agua de alimentacion, caldera, turbinas, etc.) de la planta termoelectrica Francisco Perez Rios de Tula Hidalgo, Mexico. Este trabajo fue desarrollado conforme a las siguientes etapas: 1.- Se selecciono un metodo de integracion numerico para resolver simultaneamente las ecuaciones algebraicas y diferenciales de los equipos que conforman el ciclo caldera-sobrecalentador. 2.- Se adaptaron los modelos matematicos en su forma individual para permitir que los equipos puedan ser dimensionables (que permitan cambios en sus geometrias), flexibles (que puedan operar a diferentes condiciones de operacion) y configurables (que permitan diferentes formas de conexion). Ademas, que tengan una representacion de las ecuaciones que permitan analizarlas y una organizacion eficiente para obtener su solucion. 3.- Se aplicaron dos herramientas computacionales que ayudan a rastrear los posibles errores en los codigos de los modelos matematicos. Estas herramientas fueron: a) Analizador sintactico para modelos de simulacion (ASMOS).- Esta herramienta detecta los errores en la asignacion y referencia de variables. b) Analizador estructural para modelos de simulacion (AEMOS).- Esta herramienta tiene como funcion principal obtener la matriz de dependencias, la cual relaciona las ecuaciones y las variables de un modelo. Durante esta etapa se sugirieron mejoras a estas herramientas. 4.- Se realizaron pruebas a los modelos matematicos en forma individual, primero en estado estable y despues en estado dinamico. Estas pruebas sirvieron para: a) Validar los modelos matematicos. b) Analizar el comportamiento de las variables de los modelos matematicos con diferentes parametros, condiciones de operacion y condiciones de inicio y arranque. 5.- Por ultimo, se realizo el acoplamiento entre los equipos analizados hasta formar una red de equipos que represente el ciclo caldera-sobrecalentador y se realizaron pruebas en estado estable y en estado dinamico. Estas pruebas sirvieron para: a) Observar el comportamiento de las variables cuando son acoplados dos o mas equipos. b) Observar las caracteristicas que puede presentar el metodo de integracion numerico al resolver la red de equipos y analizar los resultados numericos obtenidos. En este trabajo se logro analizar y adaptar los modelos matematicos en su forma individual para permitir que los equipos puedan operar a diferentes condiciones de operacion, cambiar sus geometrias y obtener diferentes conexiones con otros equipos, y a partir de esto, se construyo una red de equipos que represente el ciclo caldera-sobrecalentador y se selecciono un metodo numerico para resolver la red de equipos en estado estable y dinamico.

    Crude oil is a mixture of hydrocarbons, salts and water as impurities. When crude oil has high water content, their commercial value is reduced in the market, so the separation of these impurities is important for a better quality product. The content of these impurities in the crude oil reduction is a concern across the world. There are several methods for crude oil dehydration and breaking emulsions; this work presents the results of tests demulsifiers, agents which are different molecular mass polyethers. Using several test bottles compared performance agents demulsifiers which were assessed at different concentrations in a heavy crude oil from wells in the southeast of Mexico. The evaluation results showed the range of molecular mass of polymers that provide better performance for the abatement of the water content in the crude oil. [Spanish] El aceite crudo es una mezcla de hidrocarburos, sales y agua como impurezas. Cuando el aceite crudo presenta alto contenido de agua, su valor a nivel comercial se reduce en el mercado, por lo que es importante la separacion de estas impurezas para obtener un producto de mejor calidad. La reduccion del contenido de estas impurezas en el aceite crudo es una preocupacion a nivel mundial. Existen varios metodos para la deshidratacion del aceite crudo y romper las emulsiones; en este trabajo se presentan los resultados de pruebas con agentes desemulsificantes, los cuales son polieteres de diferente masa molecular. Mediante varias pruebas de botellas se comparo el desempeno de los agentes desemulsificantes los cuales fueron evaluados a diferentes concentraciones en un aceite crudo pesado procedente de pozos del Sureste de Mexico. Los resultados de la evaluacion mostraron el intervalo de masa molecular de los polimeros que proporcionan un mejor desempeno en el abatimiento del contenido de agua en el aceite crudo.

    Full Text Available La globalización ha desencadenado procesos y dinámicas de transformación social, económica y política con un fuerte carácter excluyente y homogeneizante. En América Latina, se encararon entre los años 2002 y 2012 múltiples reformas políticas orientadas a la recuperación de una agenda social, a la compensación de las desigualdades socioeconómicas y a la visibilización de la diversidad identitaria y cultural, que salvo algunas excepciones, pudieron concretarse efectivamente. Uno de los tópicos más preponderantes de las reformas políticas, se ha centrado en la educación como medio estratégico, para reparar las deudas sociales estructurales, y así, potenciar el desarrollo de modelos y propuestas acordes a las demandas de los contextos locales y a las tendencias globales de desarrollo. El presente artículo analiza la participación de las nuevas generaciones en el ámbito educativo y laboral, ámbito donde se han implementado diversas reformas que han impactado con serias limitaciones en el mejoramiento de las condiciones de vida de las personas.

    Two algorithms are presented, one for analyzing the reliability of networks and another one to analyzing the reliability of electrical substations. The algorithms model a network or a substation by means of a graph and determine all the exits, of up to third degree, which isolates the load points. The algorithm that is used for the network analysis, is the one of p-cuts and in the case of the substations it is the one of minimum ways, for later, from these minimum p-cuts and of the minimum ways, obtains the minimum cuts. These minimum cuts are evaluated with the approximate method and give as a result the system reliability and of each one of the components that have been modeled. At the end some examples and results obtained are shown. As case of study, the algorithm is applied to two substations arrangements and to a network of industrial distribution, but it is possible to be applied to transmission and distribution networks. [Spanish] Se presentan dos algoritmos, uno para analizar la confiabilidad de redes y otro para analizar la confiabilidad de subestaciones electricas. Los algoritmos modelan una red o una subestacion por medio de un grafo y determinan todas las salidas, de hasta tercer grado, que aislan los puntos de carga. El algoritmo que se utiliza para el analisis de redes, es el de p-cortes y en el caso de las subestaciones es el de caminos minimos, para despues, a partir de estos p-cortes minimos y de los caminos minimos, obtener los cortes minimos. Estos cortes minimos se evaluan con el metodo aproximado y dan como resultado la confiabilidad del sistema y de cada una de las componentes que se hayan modelado. Al final se muestran algunos ejemplos y resultados obtenidos. Como caso de estudio, el algoritmo se aplica a dos arreglos de subestaciones y a una red de distribucion industrial, pero se puede aplicar a redes de transmision y de distribucion.

    The acoustic waves caused by Partial Discharges inside the dielectric materials, can be detected by acoustic emission (AE) sensors and analyzed in the time domain. The experimental results presented, show the online detection capability of these sensors in the environment near a cable accessory, such as a splice or terminal. The AE sensors are immune to electromagnetic interference and constitute a detection method non-intrusive and non-destructive, which ensures a galvanic decoupling with respect to electric networks, this technique of partial discharge detection can be applied as a test method for preventive or predictive maintenance (condition-based maintenance) to equipment or facilities of medium and high voltage in service and represents an alternative method to electrical detection systems, conventional or not, that continue to rely on the detection of current pulses. This paper presents characterization tests of the sensors AE through comparative tests of partial discharge on accessories for underground power cables. [Spanish] Las ondas acusticas provocadas por las descargas parciales en el interior de un dielectrico pueden ser detectadas por sensores de Emisiones Acusticas (EA) y analizadas en el dominio del tiempo. Los resultados experimentales que se presentan, evidencian la capacidad de deteccion en linea de estos sensores, en el entorno proximo a un accesorio de cable, empalme o terminal. Los sensores EA son inmunes a las interferencias electromagneticas, son un metodo de deteccion no destructivo y garantizan desacople galvanico respecto a la red electrica; esta tecnica de deteccion de descargas parciales puede ser aplicada como metodo de prueba para mantenimiento preventivo o predictivo (mantenimiento basado en la condicion), en equipos o instalaciones de media y alta tension en servicio, y representa una alternativa a los sistemas electricos de deteccion, convencionales o no, que continuan basandose en la deteccion del impulsos de corriente.

    The aim of this article is to describe the internal arc phenomenon, an extremely fast, almost explosive and unattended process of transformation form an initial electric power to the generation of a pressure and heat wave inside the medium its produced its consequences for safety, current methods of limiting them and current regulations in general for equipment used in medium-voltage electrical distribution networks. Taking into account that this type of equipment is found thought the distribution network in both public buildings and unrestricted access areas, safety (of operators and the general public) must be taken into account in the design of equipment and installations to minimize the risk of internal arcs occurring. This is the gist of, for example, ITC 16 of the Spanish Regulation on Power Plants and transformer substations. In addition to the construction aspects specific to each device in which the manufacturer has to takes steps to minimize the risks of an internal arcs occurring. This is the gist of, for example, ITC 16 of the Spanish Regulation on Power Plants and transformer substations. In addition to the construction aspects specific to each device in which an internal arc occurring, it is understood to be vitally important that users, installers and designers of Medium Voltage installations are familiar with the installation conditions stated by the manufacturer and thus avoid risks.

    Full Text Available El recuerdo del Golpe de Estado de 1976 en Argentina ofrece una oportunidad para estudiar los procesos de formación y composición de la memoria colectiva. En el trabajo que se informa se estudió cómo los contenidos del recuerdo del golpe son afectados por dos factores: las generaciones que lo recuerdan y la ideología política de los participantes. Con este objetivo, se solicitó a 52 participantes argentinos y de ambos sexos que completaran una tarea de Recuerdo Libre en torno a los hechos del Golpe de Estado de 1976. Se dividió la muestra en dos grupos de 26 sujetos, uno estuvo compuesto por personas que vivieron durante esos años (mayores de 48 años y el otro, por personas de una generación que no vivió aquella época (menores de 30. Se consideró también la ideología política de los participantes (Izquierda o Derecha. Se utilizó un enfoque de análisis descriptivo, centrado en analizar el contenido del recuerdo, considerando qué temas / ideas principales lo conformaban. Los resultados muestran una mayoría de temas comunes al recuerdo de los distintos grupos. Estos elementos comunes conformarían una memoria nacional del golpe. También muestran que la generación y la ide ología política promueven temas / ideas principales propios de cada grupo. Aquellos de la gene ración mayor recordaron más temas / ideas prin cipales de tipo contextual y emocional / afectivo. Los de la generación menor recordaron en mayor medida los hechos acontecidos durante la dictadura. Los sujetos del grupo de Izquierda recordaron temas / ideas principales vinculados a la violencia de Derecha y más aspectos contextuales que los del grupo de Derecha. Se propone que hay un sistema de memoria nacional que operaría en los sujetos y que es afectado por las metas y objetivos de cada grupo.

En términos metodológicos, la evaluación distingue tres planos diferentes: la evaluación programática, la evaluación institucional y el uso de recursos (análisis del gasto público en juventud. Sustantivamente, el autor concluye que los impactos logrados hasta el momento han sido marginales (no se ha logrado mejorar las condiciones de vida de los jóvenes ni su participación en la sociedad y ello ha ocurrido por las limitaciones de las propias estrategias vigentes (sectoriales, universales, centralizadas, burocráticas, paternalistas, etc. Seguidamente, propone un enfoque alternativo al vigente, construido sobre la base de un análisis comparado sobre los enfoques promocionales vigentes en el trabajo con jóvenes, con mujeres y con niños. El eje de las propuestas está centrado en la necesidad de superar los clásicos esfuerzos por construir espacios específicos para la juventud (enfoque que ha contribuido a reforzar el aislamiento social de los jóvenes y de trabajar en la incorporación de un enfoque generacional al conjunto de las políticas públicas (emulando el trabajo de las mujeres centrado en la incorporación de la perspectiva de género.

    Due to its individual geologic-structural characteristics, Mexico counts on abundant geothermal resources. At the moment we count on a database that includes 2,332 geothermal manifestations distributed in 27 of the 32 Mexican states, the geothermal resources are classified as high temperature and intermediate or low temperature resources. Those of high temperature can be used for the generation of electrical energy. Those of intermediate to low temperature are more appropriate for direct applications of the geothermal heat. As of today, in Mexico exist four geothermal fields of high temperature that are being exploded for the electrical generation.

    The Cerro Prieto I Geothermal Field, developed and operated by the Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), has currently an installed electric power generation capacity of 180 MW and is at a very advanced stage in the development of Cerro Prieto II and III, which will allow to raise the generation capacity to 620 MW. During the exploitation of a geothermal field, in producing steam with the purpose of generating electricity, brines and waste gases are obtained. The hydrogen sulfide exhaust to the environment implies pollution problems, for this reason processes have been developed for the oxidation of these gases downstream the turbogenerator either in the flow of separated gases in the steam condensation or in the condensate produced. The Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE) has collaborated with CFE in the evaluation of the environmental impact of this gas and in the development of the processes for its abatement.

Durante la explotacion de un campo geotermico, al producir vapor con el proposito de generar electricidad, se obtienen salmueras y gases de desecho. La descarga de acido sulfhidrico a la atmosfera implica problemas de contaminacion, por esta razon se han desarrollado procesos para la oxidacion de este gas aguas abajo de la turbina generadora, ya sea en la corriente de gases que se separan en la condensacion del vapor o en el condensado producido.

    Control systems constitute the brain and the nervous system of modern machines, such as wind turbine generators (TGE by its acronym in Spanish). TGEs can work efficiently, safely and almost autonomously, thanks to the control systems with which they are equipped. Conversely, any malfunctioning of the control system may cause failure or damage of a component, a subsystem or even destruction of the TGE itself. This paper introduces some basic facts about generation of electric power from wind energy in the world and Mexico, wind turbogenerators and their most relevant technologies, TGE control systems, and R and TD+I about TGE control systems performed at the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas. [Spanish] Los sistemas de control constituyen el cerebro y el sistema nervioso de las maquinas modernas, como aerogeneradores (AG).

It is concluded that the electrical sector will have to get adapted to a different supply of primary sources, although will keep on being dominated by fossil fuels; to the year the 2050 the installed capacity and the electrical generation will multiply by five and the fuel diversification will have to include the coal and it will have to give a strong impulse to renewable energies. [Spanish] En esta presentacion se muestra la evolucion del consumo de combustibles en el sector electrico mexicano de 1970 a la fecha; una proyeccion de la generacion al ano 2050; la participacion de los combustibles fosiles en la generacion y las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero. Se concluye que el sector electrico tendra que adaptarse a una oferta diferente de fuentes primarias, aunque seguira dominado por los combustibles fosiles; al ano 2050 la capacidad instalada y la generacion electrica se multiplicaran por cinco y la diversificacion de combustibles tendra que incluir el carbon y se tendra que dar un fuerte impulso a las energias renovables.

    The electricity industry traditionally had two thermodynamic cycles for power generation: conventional steam turbine (Rankine cycle) used to supply a base load during the day, and gas turbines (Brayton cycle), for its speed response, normally used to cover peak loads. However, to provide variable peak loads, the gas turbine, as a volumetric machine is affected by the change in air density by changing the combustion temperature. This paper shows the scheme of integration of both systems, that it's known as combined cycle and the different options that would have these power plants, to maintain or increase their power in variable ambient conditions. It analyzes different options, such as: 1. Supplementary fire in the stove. 2. Air cooling intake in the gas turbine (evaporation system or mechanical system). 3. Steam injection in the combustion chamber. [Spanish] La industria electrica tradicionalmente a contado con dos ciclos termodinamicos para generacion electrica: las turbinas convencionales de vapor (ciclo de Rankine) se utilizan para suministrar una carga base durante el dia, y las turbinas de gas (ciclo de Brayton), por su rapidez de respuesta, se utilizan normalmente para cubrir las cargas pico. Sin embargo, para suministrar las cargas variables pico, la turbina a gas, por ser una maquina volumetrica, se ve afectada por el cambio de la densidad del aire de combustion al cambiar la temperatura ambiente. En este trabajo se muestra el esquema de integracion de ambos sistemas, en lo que se conoce como ciclo combinado y las diferentes opciones que tendrian estas plantas de generacion electrica para mantener o incrementar su potencia en condiciones ambiente variable. Para ello se analizan diferentes opciones, tales como: 1.- Combustion suplementaria en el recuperador de calor. 2.- Enfriamiento del aire de admision a la turbina de gas (mediante un sistema de evaporacion o mediante un sistema mecanico). 3.- Inyeccion de vapor a la camara de combustion.

    Electrical distribution systems ought to deliver electric power as economical as possible with an acceptable degree of service quality and continuity. Nevertheless, their faults represent one of the main causes of customer's unavailability. At the moment, a wide range of determinist criteria in the improvement of systems reliability based on past behavior are used, but they do not respond to the stochastic nature of system behavior, and are applied without an adequate balance between reliability and economy. In order to obtain this balance a minimum cost planning methodology that considers the predictive analysis of different investment alternatives in addition to the past behavior of the system is required, which guarantees that the economic resource available and limited will be used to gather the greater possible reliability degree. In this work this problem is approached with the fundamentals and methodologies needed to assess the design effects and operative criteria over the main reliability indexes used by the main utilities around the world, with emphasis on the need to optimize economical resources. The use of the system SynerGEETM, is investigated, probing it as a useful tool for the predictive reliability analysis. Due to the lack of experience that exists in Mexico with this type of analysis, distribution engineers has to become familiar with the concepts of the reliability engineering, their application to establish distribution systems models, and acquiring the ability to use the modern simulation tools, allowing them to evaluate the behavior of these systems with enough analytical rigor. In this sense a serial of well known study cases are presented to help them in this labor.

    This research work presents the design and construction of a single-phase microcontroller-based digital electric energy meter. The digital instrument displays the energy demand (kw-h) based on up-to-date tariff provided by the Mexican national utility Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE). The meter digitally processes voltage and current line waveform samples taken at its input, displaying, in real time, the number of electrical parameters calculated. For a better instrument performance a PIC16F874 microcontroller from microchip has been used as computational core. The parameters of interest are visualized in a liquid crystal display of 2 X 16 characters. The user interface includes a menu where some of the parameters can be selected by the operator. In the event of an electric power supply disruption the meter keeps to the energy consumption in memory. The voltage and current measured levels ranges from 1 to 255 Vrms and 0.1 to 25.5 Arms, respectively. The power is displayed in 5 digits ranging from 0 to 6502.5 watts and the energy is displayed with 5 whole digits and 5 decimals ranging, from 0 kWh up to 99999.99999 kWh. These values are refreshed every one second together with the actual electrical consumption cost which ranges from 0 up to 9999.9 pesos. The digital measuring instrument has been built based on four main inter-connected modules named, data acquisition; signal conditioning; signal processing; and display. A set of efficient assembly code routines has been developed in order to calculate the number of electrical parameter previously described. After a debugging process, the optimised code has been assembled for the PIC16F874.

    Nuclear Data Bank generation, is a process in which a great amount of resources is required, both computing and humans. If it is taken into account that at some times it is necessary to create a great amount of those, it is convenient to have a reliable tool that generates Data Banks with the lesser resources, in the least possible time and with a very good approximation. In this work are shown the results obtained during the development of INTPOLBI code, used to generate Nuclear Data Banks employing bi cubic polynomial interpolation, taking as independent variables the uranium and gadolinium percents. Two proposals were worked, applying in both cases the finite element method, using one element with 16 nodes to carry out the interpolation. In the first proposals the canonic base was employed to obtain the interpolating polynomial and later, the corresponding linear equations system. In the solution of this system the Gaussian elimination method with partial pivot was applied. In the second case, the Newton base was used to obtain the mentioned system, resulting in a triangular inferior matrix, which structure, applying elemental operations, to obtain a blocks diagonal matrix, with special characteristics and easier to work with. For the validations test, a comparison was made between the values obtained with INTPOLBI and INTERTEG (created at the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas with the same purpose) codes, and Data Banks created through the conventional process, that is, with nuclear codes normally used. Finally, it is possible to conclude that the Nuclear Data Banks generated with INTPOLBI code constitute a very good approximation that, even though do not wholly replace conventional process, however are helpful in cases when it is necessary to create a great amount of Data Banks.

    Full Text Available El proceso de endoculturación ha permitido que las costumbres y conductas de una cultura estén presentes desde las generaciones antiguas hasta las actuales. Por consiguiente, el presente artículo se centra en exponer la indagación de hábitos, conductas, rutinas y celebraciones, para dar cuenta de dicho proceso en la etnia ticuna. El ejercicio investigativo de corte etnográfico realizado en dicha comunidad de Puerto Nariño y Leticia (Amazonas, Colombia, permitió caracterizar la relación entre endoculturación y la noción de ambiente naturalista de la etnia por medio de la indagación, análisis y reflexión de las dinámicas de trasmisión generacional. En consecuencia,se exponen los resultados y discusiones de las manifestaciones de dicho proceso. Los instrumentos de recolección de la información corresponden a la realización de entrevistas semiestructuradas con preguntas abiertas, destacando aspectos de la vida, sobre la noción y apropiación del ambiente, para identificar la diferencia con el término naturaleza. Finalmente, durante la salida de campo al Trapecio amazónico, realizada en noviembre de 2012, se interactúo con diferentes personas pertenecientes a dicha comunidad, con lo cual se identificó que el proceso de endoculturación está presente en la etnia, teniendo en cuenta que las prácticas de dicho grupo se enmarcan en el cuidado, aprendizaje, interacción y relaciones cotidianas con la naturaleza, desde las personas mayores hasta los integrantes más jóvenes. También, se evidenció que la concepción de ambiente naturalista se relaciona con el valorintrínseco del ambiente, es decir, más allá de los recursosque la naturaleza entrega.

Estas centrales electricas necesitan aumentar su produccion de electricidad y vapor de agua a niveles por encima de su capacidad instalada, lo que significa integrar nuevos equipos de generacion de energia (gas o vapor turbogeneradores), asi como el aumento de las cargas electricas. En la actualidad, Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) tiene la intencion de reestructurar sus sistemas electricos y de vapor, a fin de suministrar de forma optima los servicios requeridos para la produccion de combustibles de alta calidad. En este articulo se presenta la situacion actual de los sistemas de energia electricas originales de las refinerias y se evalúa la integracion electrica de las plantas de proceso en los nuevos esquemas tipicos. Tambien se presentan los esquemas conceptuales propuestos para reestructurar el sistema de energia electrica para dos refinerias, cuya planificacion estrategica se centro en la aplicacion de las modificaciones necesarias para la integracion de nuevas plantas de proceso que demandaran alrededor de 20 MW para cada refineria en el ano 2014. Los resultados del analisis permitieron identificar las condiciones actuales de los sistemas de energia electrica en la industria de refinacion de petroleo o de la Industria Nacional de Refinacion (INR), y por lo tanto ofrecer soluciones tecnicas que podrian ser utiles para los ingenieros que desarrollan proyectos similares.

[Spanish] Sin duda, la energia electrica es la forma de energia mas ampliamente usada en las actividades economicas y sociales de nuestro mundo moderno. Por ello, se puede decir que las companias generadoras y distribuidoras de electricidad asumen dos retos de relevante preocupacion actual. Uno es generar con mayor eficiencia, menor costo y con un minimo impacto sobre el medio ambiente. El segundo es cumplir con la calidad del suministro, que ha llegado a ser un punto importante tanto para los usuarios como para las companias que distribuyen la energia electrica, y que se refleja en una distribucion y un consumo de energia mas eficiente. El trabajo de tesis que se presenta, describe un sistema fotovoltaico (SFV) interconectado a la red electrica que ayuda a superar los retos citados. Este SFV tiene la funcion de recibir la energia solar entregada por un arreglo de celdas FV; operar en el punto maximo de potencia de las celdas (para mayor aprovechamiento de la energia captada); acondicionarla a una senal alterna, dentro de los parametros tecnicos normativos para la interconexion electrica (establecidos por la compania; Comision Federal de Electricidad en Mexico); e inyectarla a la red electrica con el proposito de compensar potencia reactiva (filtrado activo) demandada por cargas lineales y no lineales, reduciendo la contaminacion de la red electrica; ademas de compensar potencia activa en los picos de demanda de energia electrica maxima.

    Full Text Available El Concierto Encuentro de Cuerdas Tradicionales Colombianas, evento anual que se realiza en la ciudad de Medellín y en varios municipios de Antioquia, es tomado aquí como una ventana para el análisis de la dinámica de esta práctica musical en el contexto regional. Se discute la participación de las nuevas generaciones, la disminución notoria de su público desde la óptica de una posible resistencia a cambios que no están a la altura de las exploraciones de las músicas populares en la actualidad; se establece una comparación entre las características de la práctica en la década previa a los inicios del evento y el período de su realización, y se examinan los mecanismos de apropiación, transmisión y circulación con que cuenta en la actualidad.

    Full Text Available Me propongo con este ensayo describir a grandes rasgos las características del proceso adolescente, señalando cómo durante este momento que hemos dado en llamar adolescencia, se debe enfrentar el sujeto a una serie de transformaciones, una verdadera metamorfosis, que implica un posicionamiento distinto en la sociedad, la familia y la cultura en general. Es mi interés enfatizar en las implicaciones que tiene este proceso en las relaciones entre los y las adolescentes y los adultos, principalmente los padres y todo aquel adulto que ostente una posición de autoridad frente a ellos y ellas. Es mi interés ofrecer al lector una interpretación alternativa de lo que comúnmente se denomina el Conflicto Generacional, partiendo de la premisa de que si logramos como adultos comprender y respetar lo adolescente, será posible una interacción, si bien no exenta de conflicto, porque el mismo es inherente a lo humano y los vínculos que establecemos, menos violenta, más gratificante y provechosa para todos y todas.

    In this work, the problem of predicting waveform distortion is addressed in a more general form. The problem is presented in such a way that the solution process is not restricted to be held in the Fourier's domain but it can be worked out in any domain generated by any basis given by all the know orthogonal series expansions, Fourier series included. In this work, it is shown that orthogonal series such as Hartley series or Walsh series can be more efficiently used for solving harmonic distortion problems than the conventional form considered in the harmonic domain. It is clear from this work that the harmonic domain is indeed a particular case of the formulation presented here. The theory used for presenting and solving the harmonic distortion problem is based mainly on the concept of the operational matrices developed in the areas of Control and Systems. The approach has the advantage of providing a general framework for solving steady state and dynamic problems in electric networks and systems in general. An important fact presented in this thesis is that for both cases, steady state and dynamic analysis, an analytical solution can be provide. Power systems are operated to have periodic operating points with the quality required by the demand. In general, electrical networks include some on-linear devices. However, the analysis of non-linear networks as such is difficult specially when the analysis is required in the frequency domain. To make the problem tractable, it is generally accepted that it can be linearized about an operating point. It is shown that linearizing networks excited by periodic sources produce linear time varying systems. Unfortunately, the analysis of networks with time varying components is more complicated than the analysis of networks with constant elements. The solution of differential equations in the time domain leads to a considerable numerical effort. Usually, the practical network engineer is interested in getting qualitative

    Nowadays Research and Development activities on Solar Thermal Power Generating Systems are supported by some countries around the world. Because of their thermal nature each of these plants can be operated only with solar energy or can be hybridized (solar/fossil fuel) and also with thermal storage systems. These types of solar thermal power plants are: Central Receiver, a circular field of tracking mirrors called helisotats reflects the solar energy onto receiver mounted on top of a central tower. Parabolic Trough, use linear parabolic concentrators to reflect sunlight to a receiver along the focal line (metallic pipe). Inside the pipe solar energy is absorbed in a working fluid with temperatures up to 390 Celsius degrees, which is then piped to a central location to power a conventional steam turbine and Parabolic Dish uses a parabolic dish concentrator to focus solar energy to a receiver and a heat engine/generator, located at the focus of the dish, to generate electrical power. In this document, we present the current status of technologies. A description of market opportunities, cost and technological perspectives are also included. [Spanish] Actualmente la Investigacion and Desarrollo para la generacion de potencia electrica mediante el aprovechamiento de la energia solar por la ruta termodinamica esta siendo apoyada por varios paises.

  4. The spanish electric system operation. The contribution of nuclear generation

    Operation of an electric system encloses the collection of activities which extend from affective generation dispatch to issuing instruction for network manoeuvring along with international exchange scheduling. Based on the market mechanisms that apply to energy transactions, these tasks guarantee the security of supply end consumers, which is the final goal of the System Operators actions. In Spain this function is executed by Red Electrica de Espana (REE) since 1985, after being constituted as the first Transmission and System Operator (TSO) in the world. Additionally the variations to Law 54/1997 introduced by law 17/2007 also assign REE the function of sole transmission owner in the Spanish electric system. In order to achieve the aforementioned goal, nuclear energy plays in Spain a fundamental role in electric generation thanks to its high availability rate, the predictability of its fuel recharges, its high operational reliability, its geographical location, the stability of its costs and the security of supply given by the possibility of on-site fuel storage in the power plant.

    The residual magnetism is a phenomenon in which the magnetic dipoles of a substance are oriented in a certain degree. On the other hand, when internal forces exist capable of aligning elementary magnetic dipoles of a material, a permanent magnet is obtained. Just as in a conductor or in a material, in the elements of a rotary electrical machine magnetic fields can be induced that produce a residual magnetism or magnetization. In the rotary electrical machines, the magnetization phenomenon causes serious problems, such as the generation of induced currents that propitiate the mechanical wear in bearings, collars, trunnions and inclusive in the shaft, by effects known as pitting, frosting and spark tracks, as well as erroneous readings in vibration and temperature sensors, that in some cases can cause the shut down of the machine. In this article are presented the general concepts on the residual magnetism in rotary electrical machines, the causes that originate it and the problems that arises, as well as the demagnetization of the components that have residual magnetic field. The results obtained by the area of Electrical Equipment of the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas are revised, during the execution of activities related to the measurement and elimination of the residual magnetic field in rotary electrical machines. [Spanish] El magnetismo residual es un fenomeno en el que los dipolos magneticos de una sustancia se encuentran orientados en un grado determinado. Por otro lado, cuando existen fuerzas internas capaces de alinear los dipolos magneticos elementales de un material, se tiene un iman permanente. Al igual que en un conductor o un material, en los elementos de una maquina electrica rotatoria se pueden inducir campos magneticos que producen un magnetismo residual o magnetizacion. En las maquinas electricas rotatorias, el fenomeno de magnetizacion causa graves problemas, como la generacion de corrientes inducidas que propician el desgaste mecanico

    For the purpose of contributing to the strategic plan and to the improvement of productivity and competitiveness levels, the Federal Electric Commission (CFE, Spanish acronym) is making a significant investment in human resources and materials to modernize electric energy supply systems, including monitoring, protection and automatic control for operating all the elements of the electrical process, from generating plants to transmission lines, distribution systems and commercial applications. With this modernization, the CFE is also creating the infrastructure for the interoperability and interconnectivity of the above systems, in such a way to enable it to broaden, continue and complement the functional integration of the linked institutional systems of the latest generation. The total integration of the systems will allow the CFE to move toward Intelligent Electric Networks. Therefore, the CFE requested help from the Electric Research Institute (IIE, Spanish acronym) to develop part of the infrastructure to modernize the automation of distribution. This consists of the development of a prototype of the supervision and control system, using interoperable open technology owned by the CFE which enables using the functions of a SCADA system (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) to supervise and control electric distribution networks.

    This paper shows the results attained in energy saving through a project of potable water pumping, which took an investment of $433,043.00 and an internal rate of return of 126%. This project puts into evidence that it is possible to reduce between 15 and 30% of the total invoicing for energy consumption in potable water pumping if an equipment of poor efficiency is replaced by another of high efficiency. The project was requested by the Guanajuato's State Water Comision and the Municipal Bureau of Sewage and Potable Water, with the double intention of reducing the energy consumption along with the corresponding invoicing and incrementing the output of the wells in order to improve the potable water supply. In the site two high efficiency submersible motor-pumps were installed previously to the energy diagnosis that triggered profitable operation results and a convenient invoicing. [Spanish] Se documentan los resultados obtenidos en un proyecto de ahorro de energia en el bombeo de agua potable realizado con una inversion de $433,043.00 y con una tasa interna de retorno de 126%. Este proyecto pone en evidencia que es posible reducir entre el 15 y 30% de la facturacion total por consumo de energia electrica en el bombeo de agua potable si se sustituye un equipo poco eficiente por otro de alta eficiencia. El proyecto fue solicitado por la Comision Estatal del Agua de Guanajuato y la Junta Municipal de Agua Potable y Alcantarillado del municipio, con un doble proposito, reducir el consumo de energia junto con la facturacion correspondiente e incrementar la capacidad de produccion de los pozos con la intencion de mejorar el abasto de agua potable. En el lugar se instalaron dos motobombas sumergibles de alta eficiencia previo diagnostico energetico que desencadenaron rentables resultados operativos y de facturacion.

    In recent years there has been an effort in Mexico and the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GGE) and at the same time supply the increase in energy consumption worldwide. In this context, the electricity sector in Mexico is fundamental in the fulfillment of GGE reduction commitments and goals by contributing more than 20% of these. Nuclear energy must have a fundamental role in the expansion of the National Electric System, since it allows generating large amounts of electricity for long periods of time without emissions of polluting gases. With this background, was determined to investigate the main characteristics that nuclear technology must have in order to be considered as a real solution in guaranteeing the supply of electricity in a continuous, safe and economic manner with the least amount of GGE possible. However, combined cycle power plants are the main option to cover these needs in accordance with the current national policy, so in this work an extensive technical, economic and safety comparison between the combined cycle and nuclear technologies was carried out. In order to know the technology that should have a greater participation in the planning of the National Electric System in the coming decades. Thus, five price scenarios were elaborated for natural gas and liquefied natural gas imports, in order to know the cost that would generate to continue with the current policy of use of combined cycle power plants as a base for electricity generation and if that cost justified in the first instance the increase of nuclear capacity in the country. The results showed that is necessary to change the main source of power generation in Mexico in order to have a reliable, safe, economical and clean electrical system. (Author)

    In this thesis work it is presented the design and implementation of a simulator of total scope of a predictive controller based in the neuronal model of the temperature in two stages of the heating of the steam generator of a fossil fuel power plant. An implemented control scheme is detailed, as well as the methodology for the identification of a neuronal model utilized for the control. Finally the results of the implementation in the simulator located at the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE) are shown to be satisfactory. This control structure is not applied directly in closed circuit, but provides the value of the control actions to a human operator. [Spanish] En este trabajo de tesis se presenta el diseno e implementacion, en un simulador de alcance total, de un controlador predictivo basado en un modelo neuronal para el control de la temperatura en dos etapas del calentamiento del generador de vapor de una central termoelectrica. Se detalla el esquema de control implementado, asi como la metodologia de identificacion de un modelo neuronal utilizado para la sintesis del control. Finalmente se muestran los resultados de la implementacion en el simulador que se encuentra en el Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE); dichos resultados fueron satisfactorios. Esta estructura de control no se aplica directamente en lazo cerrado, sino que provee el valor de las acciones de control a un operador humano.

    This article is based in the electromagnetic modeling presented in the first part of the series for the indirect solution of partial differential equations. Magnetic systems in closed regions with moving or axial symmetry, whose total current density is partially known (induction problems) are considered. Includes the ability to deal with means in movement and a sinusoidal behavior for the source density current is assumed. Some algorithms are developed that are implanted in the software CALIIE-2D of the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE) to obtain the numerical solutions of these problems. The basic systems of algebraic equations are obtained through the application of the Galerkin method in the discreteness of the finite element with first order triangular elements. [Espanol] Este articulo se basa en la modelacion electromagnetica presentada en la primera parte de la serie y en el planteamiento proporcionado en la segunda parte para la solucion indirecta de ecuaciones diferenciales parciales. Se consideran sistemas magneticos en regiones cerradas con simetria traslacional o axial, cuya densidad de corriente total es parcialmente conocida (problemas de induccion). Incluye la capacidad para tratar medios con movimiento y se supone un comportamiento senoidal para la densidad de corriente fuente. Se desarrollan los algoritmos que se implantan en el programa de computo CALIIE-2D del Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE) para obtener las soluciones numericas de estos problemas. Los sistemas basicos de ecuaciones algebraicas se obtienen mediante la aplicacion del metodo de Galerkin en la discretizacion de elemento finito con elementos triangulares de primer orden.

    A brief description of a combined cycle power station that uses synthesis gas, better known as CCGI, is presented. The costs of the initial investment of several plants of this type, that have been described in literature, are analyzed and the predictions that different experts do on the costs that are expected in the near future are reviewed. Also the maintenance expenses that would be expected during the normal operation and the main maintenance are examined. The availability factors that reasonably must be considered based on the recent experiences are analyzed. Afterwards the sense which that the plant factor has in one of natural gas and one of synthesis, where generally are used as base plant. The costs of the different fuels that can be used in a CCGI are examined. Finally the leveled cost of the energy for both cases is calculated and the sensitivity of both to the cost of the respective fuels is examined. The result is presented in graphical form to show in a first attempt, the circumstances under which one or another technology could be preferable. It is made clear that the data used in this brief study are the best reasoned estimation and in no way they must be considered as definitive, in special in those of investment and maintenance of the CCGI where the operation history is still short. [Spanish] Se presenta una breve descripcion de una Central de Ciclo Combinado que utiliza Gas de Sintesis o mejor conocidas como CCGI. Se analizan los costos de la inversion inicial de varias plantas de este tipo que han sido descritas en la literatura y se resenan las predicciones que hacen diferentes expertos sobre los costos que se esperan para el futuro cercano. Tambien se examinan los gastos de mantenimiento que se esperarian durante la operacion normal y durante los mantenimientos mayores. Se analizan los factores de disponibilidad que razonablemente deben considerarse, basados en las experiencias recientes. Luego se discute el sentido que tiene el factor de planta en una de gas natural y una de sintesis, donde por lo general son usadas como planta de base. Se examinan los costos de los diferentes combustibles que se pueden usar en una CCGI. Finalmente se calcula el costo nivelado de la energia para ambos casos y se examina la sensibilidad de ambos al precio de los respectivos combustibles. El resultado se presenta en forma grafica para mostrar en un primer intento, las circunstancias bajo las cuales podria ser preferible una u otra tecnologia. Se deja claro que los datos utilizados en este breve estudio son la mejor estimacion razonada y de ninguna manera deben considerarse como definitivos, en especial los de inversion y mantenimiento de las CCGI donde la historia de operacion es todavia corta.

    The Guadalajara Metropolitan Area (GMA) continuously registers periods of unhealthy levels of air quality. One of the most powerful tools available to describe the dynamics of air pollutants in urban areas are three-dimensional mathematical models that describe the transportation and chemical transformation of these. In this work, we present a first application of one of such models, the California/ Carneige Institute of Technology (CIT), to the GMA. The modeling period selected goes from the 16th to the 18th of May, 2001; the modeling domain covers an area of 25,600 km{sup 2} and is centered in the GMA. The statistical model performance evaluation indicates that the CIT behaved better during the last two days of the simulation. In this period, regarding O{sub 3}, the normalized bias was less than 23.5 %, the normalized error less than 36.5 %, and the daily index of agreement was above 0.8. Further more, the model was capable of reproducing the O{sub 3} peak with an error of less than 18 %. These values, compared to established guidelines on model evaluation, indicate an acceptable performance of the model for the simulated period. However, the performance of CO was not as good, and poor with respect to SO{sub 2} and NO{sub x}, indicating that additional work is needed to improve the overall performance of the model. Spatially, the model tended to represent better the dynamics of pollutants in the west region of the GMA, and temporally areas of improvement were detected in the simulation of nighttime periods. [Spanish] La Zona Metropolitana de Guadalajara (ZMG) registra continuamente periodos con niveles insalubres de calidad del aire. Una de las herramientas mas poderosas para describir la dinamica de contaminantes atmosfericos en zonas urbanas son los modelos matematicos tridimensionales que describen el transporte y transformacion quimica de los mismos. En este trabajo se presenta una primera aplicacion de uno de dichos modelos, del California/Carneige Institute of Technology (CIT), a la ZMG. El periodo de modelacion seleccionado abarca del 16 al 18 de mayo de 2001, y el dominio de modelacion cubre una region de 25,600 km{sup 2} centrado en la ZMG. La evaluacion estadistica del desempeno del modelo indica que el CIT tuvo un mejor comportamiento durante los dos ultimos dias de modelacion. En este periodo, respecto al O{sub 3}, el sesgo normalizado fue menor a 23.5 %, el error normalizado menor a 36.5 % y el indice diario de ajuste superior a 0.8. Asimismo, el modelo fue capaz de reproducir el pico de O{sub 3} con un error inferior al 18 %. Estos valores, comparados con guias establecidas de evaluacion de modelos de calidad del aire, indican un desempeno aceptable del modelo para el periodo simulado. No obstante, el desempeno respecto al CO fue regular, mientras que respecto al SO{sub 2} y NO{sub x} fue pobre, indicando que se requiere trabajo adicional para mejorar el desempeno general del modelo. Espacialmente, el modelo tiende a representar mejor la dinamica de contaminantes en la zona occidente de la ZMG, y temporalmente se apreciaron areas de mejora en la modelacion durante los periodos nocturnos.

    The neoclassical theory of transport is used to calculate the current efficiency of electronic cyclotron impulsion (ECCD) in an axisymmetric tokamak in the few collisions regime. The standard parameter of the tokamak is used to obtain a system of equations that describe the hydrodynamic of the plasma, where the ponderomotive force (PM) due to high power radio frequency waves is taken in account. The PM force is produced in the proximity of electron cyclotron resonance surface in a specific poloidal localization. The efficiency ECCD is analyzed in the cases of first and second harmonic (for different angles of injection of radio frequency waves) and it is validated using the experimental values of the TCV and T-10 tokamaks. The results are according to those obtained by means of the techniques of the Green functions. (Author)

    Absorption machines show a similar response as a function of the external temperatures, which can be approximated by a single functional dependence of the named characteristic temperature. This equation and the normalization curve of the solar thermal collector field driving the chiller and some more approximations allow determining the driving temperature that maximizes the cooling power at any time. This results in a simple equation. It is offered for the design of solar cooling facilities and their control algorithms. Some results are offered and discussed. (Author)

    In this work a neutron study is presented about a square assembly design of double line of fuel rods, with moderator box to the center of the arrangement, for a nuclear reactor cooled with supercritical water (SCWR). The SCWR reactor was chosen by the characteristics of its design, mainly because is based in light water reactors (PWR and BWR), and the operational experience that has of them allow to use models and similar programs to simulate the fuel and the nucleus of this type of reactors. To develop the necessary models and to carry out the design and analysis of the SCWR reactor, the neutron codes MCNPX and Helios were used. The reason of using both codes, is because the code MCNPX used thoroughly in the neutron simulation of these reactors, it has been our reference code to analyze the results obtained with the Helios code which results are more efficient because its calculation times are minors. In the nucleus design the same parameters for both codes were considered. The results show that the design with Helios is a viable option to simulate these reactors since their values of the neutrons multiplication factor are very similar to those obtained with MCNPX. On the other hand, it could be corroborated that the CASMO-4 code is inadequate to simulate the fuel to the temperature conditions and water pressure in the SCWR. (Author)

    In the present work it is considered the mathematical formulation of the problem of the reactive compensation planning, The solution technique based on evolutionary programming is described and the results of compensation in the Northwest subsystem of the Mexican electrical system are shown. A technique of optimization based on the Evolutionary Programming is proposed to solve the problem of the Planning of the Reactive Compensation in transmission of electrical energy networks. The problem consists in determining how much compensation to add and where to locate it in such a way that the investment cost of the compensation equipment is diminished, plus the operation costs associated to the transmission losses, plus a penalty function associated to the violations of the operative limits of voltage. The compensation that is determined must allow that the network operates in normal conditions before any contingency of a pre-established assembly. The problem considered is non-linear and whole compound. Tests made to a representative system of the Northwest area of the Mexican electrical system of 171 nodes and 284 branches are reported. [Spanish] En el presente trabajo se plantea la formulacion matematica del problema de planificacion de la compensacion reactiva, se describe la tecnica de solucion basada en programacion evolutiva y se muestra resultados de compensacion en el subsistema Noroeste del sistema electrico mexicano.

    Due to the steep rise in oil prices in the early 1970s, South American countries became aware of the advisability of developing their abundant and renewable hydroelectric resources. The second energy crisis of 1979 pushed up oil prices still further and the consequences in the South American electricity sector included contractions in markets, overcapacity, and difficult financial circumstances. Increases in exports were seen as a way to reduce the burden of those countries' heavy debts and to improve economic conditions. To harmonize the interests of development of highly energy intensive industries in developed countries and the economic development of developing countries, the possibility of marketing energy as an industrial input should be considered. Evidence of the advantages that South American countries can offer to such industrial transfers is presented. These countries offer a source of plentiful hydropower from installations in operation, under construction, or projected as major developments. These installations are already largely interconnected through high- and extra-high-voltage power transmission networks. Technical information is given on the installed generating capacities, including thermal reserve plants; utilization levels; transmission line interconnections; and remaining renewable and non-renewable energy resources. Considerations regarding the political and financial implications of industrial transfers are discussed. 6 refs., 9 figs

    The conversion of heat energy into electrical energy by a small compact device is descrtbed. Where the heat energy is supplied by a radioactive material and thermopIIes convert the heat to electrical energy. The particular battery construction includes two insulating discs with conductive rods disposed between them to form a circular cage. In the center of the cage is disposed a cup in which the sealed radioactive source is located. Each thermopile is formed by connecting wires from two adjacent rods to a potnt on an annular ring fastened to the outside of the cup, the ring having insulation on its surface to prevent electrica1 contact with the thermopiles. One advantage of this battery construction is that the radioactive source may be inserted after the device is fabricated, reducing the radiation hazard to personnel assembling the battery.

    Day after day the electric power generation tends to be done in the most efficient way in order to diminish the generation costs and the rate of environmental pollution per KWh generated. This paper discusses the application of absorption refrigeration systems for the cooling of the air entering the compressor of a gas turbine in a combined cycle, in order to increase the mass air flow and with it the turbine output. The flows with remanent energy content that are not used in a combined cycle can be used for the operation of the absorption refrigeration system. This way, the required thermal energy for the cooling system is free. With this system it is possible to raise the gas turbine generation output from 5% to 25%. [Espanol] La generacion electrica dia con dia pretende realizarse de la manera mas eficiente posible con el objeto de disminuir los costos de generacion y la tasa de contaminacion ambiental por Kwh generado. En el presente trabajo se introduce la aplicacion de sistemas de refrigeracion por absorcion para el enfriamiento del aire de entrada al compresor de la turbina de gas de un ciclo combinado, con el objeto de aumentar el flujo masico del aire y con ello la potencia de salida de la turbina. Las corrientes con contenido remanente de energia termica que no se usan en una planta de ciclo combinado pueden servir para operar el sistema de refrigeracion por absorcion. De esta manera, la energia termica requerida para el sistema de enfriamiento es gratuita. Con este sistema es posible incrementar la potencia de generacion de la turbina de gas de 5 a 25%.

En términos metodológicos, la evaluación distingue tres planos diferentes: la evaluación programática, la evaluación institucional y el uso de recursos (análisis del gasto público en juventud. Sustantivamente, el autor concluye que los impactos logrados hasta el momento han sido marginales (no se ha logrado mejorar las condiciones de vida de los jóvenes ni su participación en la sociedad y ello ha ocurrido por las limitaciones de las propias estrategias vigentes (sectoriales, universales, centralizadas, burocráticas, paternalistas, etc. Seguidamente, propone un enfoque alternativo al vigente, construido sobre la base de un análisis comparado sobre los enfoques promocionales vigentes en el trabajo con jóvenes, con mujeres y con niños. El eje de las propuestas está centrado en la necesidad de superar los clásicos esfuerzos por construir espacios específicos para la juventud (enfoque que ha contribuido a reforzar el aislamiento social de los jóvenes y de trabajar en la incorporación de un enfoque generacional al conjunto de las políticas públicas (emulando el trabajo de las mujeres centrado en la incorporación de la perspectiva de género.

    A review is made of the energy resources in use existing at the moment for the electricity production (hydraulic, coal, oil, gas and uranium). The asymptotic energies (solar, geothermal and nuclear fission and fusion) are described and the state of development in which they are up to the moment. One concludes that in the case of Mexico it would be convenient to make flexible and to reinforce the electrical systems in forecast of a greater participation of the distributed generation and to orient the extensions of the electrical generation to make a greater use of the three asymptotic energies already used: the solar (in its forms hydraulic and wind power), geothermal and the nuclear fission. [Spanish] Se pasa revista a los recursos existentes en las energias actualmente en uso para la produccion de electricidad (hidraulica, carbon, petroleo, gas y uranio). Se describen las energias asintoticas (solar, geotermia y fision y fusion nucleares) y el estado de desarrollo en que se encuentran hasta el momento. Se concluye que en el caso de Mexico convendria flexibilizar y reforzar el sistema electrico en prevision de una mayor participacion de la generacion distribuida y orientar las ampliaciones de la generacion electrica para hacer un mayor uso de tres de las energias asintoticas ya utilizadas: la solar (en sus formas hidraulica y eolica), la geotermia y la fision nuclear.

    Usually one distinguishes two main types of systems of advantage of the solar energy: the photovoltaic and the photo thermal ones. The first ones are those based on the photovoltaic effect, which allows the direct conversion of the energy of the solar radiation in electrical energy. The second ones transform the solar energy into heat, which can be used in a large variety of processes. By the degree of development of both technologies it is advisable to present them in different sections. Also, there is a great variety of technologies of photo thermal systems that we have classified as technologies for the termosolar generation of electrical power, whose temperatures of operation are high, technologies the solar heating at low temperatures and technologies for industrial heat process. [Spanish] Se suele distinguir dos tipos principales de sistemas de aprovechamiento de la energia solar: los fotovoltaicos y los fototermicos. Los primeros son aquellos basados en el efecto fotovoltaico, que permite la conversion directa de la energia de la radiacion solar en energia electrica. Los segundos transforman la energia solar en calor, el cual puede ser utilizado en una gran variedad de procesos. Por el grado de desarrollo de ambas tecnologias es conveniente presentarlas en secciones diferentes. Asi mismo, existe una gran variedad de tecnologias de sistemas fototermicos que hemos clasificado en tecnologias para la generacion termosolar de potencia electrica, cuyas temperaturas de operacion son altas, tecnologias para el calentamiento solar a bajas temperaturas y tecnologias para calor de proceso industrial.

    Determination of electrical losses is one of the most important tasks for any enterprise dedicated to generation, transmission, transformation and/or distribution of electric energy. Any enterprise dedicated to these activities does continuously energy balances in order to estimate whole electrical losses of specific processes. However, it is necessary to classify the whole electrical losses into technical and non-technical losses. This paper presents a proposal for estimating technical and non-technical losses in an electrical power system. [Spanish] La determinacion de las perdidas de energia electrica es una de las labores mas importantes en cualquier empresa dedicada a la generacion, transmision, transformacion y/o distribucion de energia electrica. Es indudable que toda empresa dedicada a cualquiera de las actividades mencionadas anteriormente realiza periodicamente balances de energia que permiten estimar el valor de las perdidas totales de energia del proceso considerado. No obstante, para poder realizar un mejor analisis de la problematica de las perdidas de energia, es necesario separar el valor total de perdidas obtenido mediante un balance de energia, en perdidas tecnicas y perdidas no tecnicas. El presente trabajo presenta una propuesta para la estimacion de perdidas tecnicas y no tecnicas en un sistema electrico de potencia.

    Usually one distinguishes two main types of systems of advantage of the solar energy: the photovoltaic and the photo thermal ones. The first ones are those based on the photovoltaic effect, which allows the direct conversion of the energy of the solar radiation in electrical energy. The second ones transform the solar energy into heat, which can be used in a large variety of processes. By the degree of development of both technologies it is advisable to present them in different sections. Also, there is a great variety of technologies of photo thermal systems that we have classified as technologies for the termosolar generation of electrical power, whose temperatures of operation are high, technologies the solar heating at low temperatures and technologies for industrial heat process. [Spanish] Se suele distinguir dos tipos principales de sistemas de aprovechamiento de la energia solar: los fotovoltaicos y los fototermicos. Los primeros son aquellos basados en el efecto fotovoltaico, que permite la conversion directa de la energia de la radiacion solar en energia electrica. Los segundos transforman la energia solar en calor, el cual puede ser utilizado en una gran variedad de procesos. Por el grado de desarrollo de ambas tecnologias es conveniente presentarlas en secciones diferentes. Asi mismo, existe una gran variedad de tecnologias de sistemas fototermicos que hemos clasificado en tecnologias para la generacion termosolar de potencia electrica, cuyas temperaturas de operacion son altas, tecnologias para el calentamiento solar a bajas temperaturas y tecnologias para calor de proceso industrial.

    institutional procedures, the standards, the commercial programs and the programs developed by the Management of Planning, used in the CFE to make the electric distribution systems planning. In the same way, in Chapter 4 a methodology for the optimization of the electrical grids in low tension is proposed, standing out some errors that are commonly committed in the design of these types of networks, doing recommendations to correct them with low cost investments. Because of the importance in the design of medium tension lines, in Chapter 3 the set of economic conductors for 23 kV was determined for urban and rural areas, system type A (3F-4H, 2F-3H, 1F-2H), by means of the Modified Method. With this information we will be able to select the conductor that offers the best economy in the time, in each extension of the network. In Chapter 5 the proposed methodology in the planning of the electrical system of distribution of the Zapotlan Zone was applied, as much in substations as in the high and medium tension network. In this chapter analyses of optimization of the network were performed, capacitor banks application, attention to the incremental demand, power losses, contingencies by fault and reliability of the provision. Finally the obtained conclusions of the investigation and the work carried out are presented; as well as the recommendations for future facilities.

    This thesis presents a computational package for the dynamic analysis of synchronous generators and their controls in a machine - infinite bus system. The package is integrated by a graphic interface for Windows environment and several models for the different components of the generation system. The development of the graphic interface was carried out with object oriented programming under Windows environment, available from Borland C++, which generates a group of menus that integrates an environment of interactive and versatile simulation. The package contains mathematical models of third, fourth, fifth and sixth order for synchronous generators of round and salient poles. Several mathematical models for the excitation systems DC1A, AC1A and ST1A, according to the IEEE classification, are included. Models for thermal and hydraulic turbines with governor of speed are also included, as well as a mathematical model for the power system stabilizer and magnetic saturation on synchronous generators. Numerical methods like Euler, Modified Euler and Runge Kutta of second and fourth order are used to solve the characteristics differential equations of the system under study. Algorithms for graphic generation includes phasor diagram, capability and saturation curves for synchronous machine. Computer models are validated and sensitivity analysis is carried out in order to assess the ef ect of type of model for synchronous machine, excitation systems, power system stabilizer, magnetic saturation in the synchronous generator and different numerical methods of integration. The computational package is useful in teaching and research on the dynamic response of synchronous machines and their controls.

    Because electric energy is a vitally important material for the development of the country, this work is aimed at offering an alternative methodology for the construction and operational demonstration of a PEMFC fuel cell. Recently discovered natural gas reserves can be exploited using modern methods and its use fulfills generation, distribution and low environmental impact priorities. All these factors can be observed with the use of fuel cells, especially when working with reformed natural gas. In addition to its low environmental impact during the generation of this energy, the use of fuel cells reflects a generator source that can be located with the consumer, further reducing problems created by transmission lines, fuel transport, etc. Fuel cells are receiving a great deal of attention from the international community and some models are already commercially available. They are showing excellent possibilities for becoming one of the future technologies to generate electric energy with low environmental impact.

Todos estos aspectos se pueden observar dentro del uso de celdas a combustible, especialmente cuando se trabaja con gas natural reformado. Ademas del factor de bajo impacto ambiental durante la misma generacion de energia, el uso de las celdas a combustible involucra una fuente generadora, que puede colocarse junto al consumidor, reduciendo aun mas los problemas generados por las lineas de transmision, el transporte del combustible, etc. Las celdas a combustible estan recibiendo una gran

    At present every time is more costly to generate the electric power utilized in all of the aspects of our society. The energy savings by means of a variable velocity device is focussed to the industrial sector, where the electric motor consumes a significant part of the total electricity utilized. The electric power suffers losses right from its generation stage, then through the transmission stage by means of the distribution networks and its conversion into mechanical energy. From these losses the more important ones are the first and the last stage, therefore the end users have a great savings potential by optimizing their electric power consumption. Evidently, the use of variable velocity devices in A.C. (also known as inverters o frequency variators) as well as in D.C. or rectifiers, have disadvantages, such as the generation of harmonics and noise on the power transmission lines inside the factory as well as in the city power lines. This paper discusses the savings that can be obtained by he use of these devices and how to counteract their disadvantages.

    The deregulation and restructuring undergone by the electrical industry, as well as the tendency at world-wide level of reorganization in generation, transmission and distribution units has brought about, as a consequence, drastic changes in the operation of the electric power systems. The difficulties to construct new transmission power lines and the continuous increase in the electricity consumption are forcing more and more to operate the electric power systems every time nearer their safety limits. Nevertheless, to assure the system reliability without mattering what so plaintiff is the operating condition is a requirement that the electrical companies must satisfy. This panorama has motivated and impelled the use of new technologies for the critical indicators the monitoring that allow the electrical companies to guarantee the system safe operation. In this paper a methodology for the location of Fasorial Measurement Units, better known as FMU for the monitoring of the critical oscillation modes in the electric power systems is presented.

    In this paper are presented the results of a study carried out in order to establish a non-destructive ultrasonic technique for the evaluation of the adherence condition of solid-to-solid interfaces. An important application of this technique is the non-destructive inspection of welds of copper canes of the windings of a generator stator of a hydroelectric power station. The development of the inspection technique required the analysis of ultrasonic images of welds in two cane samples; these images were generated through an ultrasonic scanner type C (C-scan) using a system integrated in the Non-Destructive Testing Laboratory of the Combustion Systems Unit of the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE). The analysis allowed the establishment of the adequate configuration of the equipment to be used in the on site inspection, its calibration procedures and the acceptance/rejection criteria of the welds to be examined. Likewise, the correlation among the values of the ultrasonic reflection coefficients measured in the welds and the theoretical values predicted for the adherence in the solid-to-solid interface for a simple model of imperfect interface, is presented. These results are a first step in the quantitative characterization of solid-to-solid joints, that together with future developments might have a technological impact in the determination of the condition of welds by friction, welds with the contribution of melted metal and the adherence degree of coatings on structures exposed to conditions leading to corrosion.

    1989-01-01

    When Enerpro, Inc. president, Frank J. Bourbeau, attempted to file a patent on a system for synchronizing a wind generator to the electric utility grid, he discovered Marshall Space Flight Center's Frank Nola's power factor controller. Bourbeau advanced the technology and received a NASA license and a patent for his Auto Synchronous Controller (ASC). The ASC reduces generator "inrush current," which occurs when large generators are abruptly brought on line. It controls voltage so the generator is smoothly connected to the utility grid when it reaches its synchronous speed, protecting the components from inrush current damage. Generator efficiency is also increased in light winds by applying lower than rated voltage. Wind energy is utilized to drive turbines to generate electricity for utility companies.

    At the present time, the turbo-gas units (TGU) make an important contribution in the development and growth of the national power sector, since this type of units pertaining to the Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) contributes with the 6.23% of the national production, that is to say, 2600 MW approx. The turbo-gas units are aero-derivative gas turbines used for power generation, pumping and compression. Generally, they are used to support urgent requests in the demand of electricity or, for the permanent supply of electrical energy in isolated zones. In addition, they are used to quickly get into and get out of operation, which requires high availability, trustworthiness and flexibility. In this sense, and with the intention of improving the operation of the TGUs, the Gerencia de Control e Instrumentation (GCI) (Management of Control and Instrumentation) of the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE), has developed a control technology for this type of units, able to replace the original control systems of units with even 30 years of continuous operation or to be installed in new units. [Spanish] En la actualidad, las unidades de turbogas (UTG) tienen una importante contribucion en el desarrollo y crecimiento del sector energetico nacional, pues este tipo de unidades pertenecientes a la Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) aportan el 6.23% de la produccion nacional, es decir, 2600 MW aproximadamente. Las unidades turbogas son turbinas de gas aeroderivativas empleadas para la generacion electrica, bombeo y compresion. Por lo general, son utilizadas para apoyar solicitudes urgentes en la demanda de electricidad o bien, para el suministro permanente de energia electrica en zonas aisladas. Ademas, se usan para entrar y salir rapidamente en operacion, lo que requiere alta disponibilidad, confiabilidad y flexibilidad.

  8. Generative Contexts

    Educational research has identified how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) practice and education have underperforming metrics in racial and gender diversity, despite decades of intervention. These disparities are part of the construction of a culture of science that is alienating to these populations. Recent studies in a social science framework described as "Generative Justice" have suggested that the context of social and scientific practice might be modified to bring about more just and equitable relations among the disenfranchised by circulating the value they and their non-human allies create back to them in unalienated forms. What is not known are the underlying principles of social and material space that makes a system more or less generative. I employ an autoethnographic method at four sites: a high school science class; a farm committed to "Black and Brown liberation"; a summer program geared towards youth environmental mapping; and a summer workshop for Harlem middle school students. My findings suggest that by identifying instances where material affinity, participatory voice, and creative solidarity are mutually reinforcing, it is possible to create educational contexts that generate unalienated value, and circulate it back to the producers themselves. This cycle of generation may help explain how to create systems of justice that strengthen and grow themselves through successive iterations. The problem of lack of diversity in STEM may be addressed not merely by recruiting the best and the brightest from underrepresented populations, but by changing the context of STEM education to provide tools for its own systematic restructuring.

    The main components of a thermoelectric generator are housed in an evacuated cylindrical vessel. In the middle of it there is the radioactive heat source, e.g. 90 Sr or 238 Pu, enclosed by a gamma radiation shield. This one is surrounded by a heat-insulating screen from getter material or indicidual sheets of titanium. In the bottom of the screen there are arranged several thermocouples on a circle. The thermocouples themselves are contained within casings sealed gas-tight and filled with an inert gas, e.g. argon. By separating the internal space of the generator vessel from the thermocouple casings, made of e.g. n- respectively p-doped lead telluride cylinders, for both the optimal gas state may be obtained.

    This study presents three scenarios relating to the environmental futures of electricity generation in Mexico up to the year 2025. The first scenario emphasizes the use of oil products, particularly fuel oil, and represents the energy policy path that was in effect until 1990. The second scenario prioritizes the use of natural gas, reflecting the energy consumption pattern that arose in the mid-90's as a result of reforms in the energy sector. In the third scenario, the high participation of renewable sources of energy is considered feasible from a technical and economic point of view. The three scenarios are evaluated up to the year 2025 in terms of greenhouse gases (GHG) and acid rain precursor gases (ARPG). [Spanish] Este estudio presenta tres escenarios relacionados de los futuros ambientales de generacion de electricidad en Mexico hasta el ano 2025. El primer escenario enfatiza la utilizacion de productos del petroleo, particularmente el combustoleo, y representa el curso de la politica de energia vigente hasta 1990. El segundo escenario da prioridad al uso de gas natural, reflejando el patron de consumo de energia que surgio a mediados de los 90's como resultado de reformas en el sector energetico. En el tercer escenario, la alta participacion de las fuentes renovables de energia es considerada factible desde los puntos de vista tecnico y economico. Los tres escenarios son evaluados hasta el ano 2025 en terminos de los gases de efecto invernadero (GHG) y de gases precursores de lluvia acida (ARPG).

    1998-01-01

    The results concerning the heavy ion collision simulations at Fermi energies by means of phenomenological models obtained in the last two years ar presented. The event generators are essentially following the phase of elaboration of analysis methods of data obtained by INDRA or NAUTILUS 4 π multidetectors. To identify and correctly quantify a phenomenon or a physical quantity it is necessary to verify by simulation the feasibility and validity of the analysis and also to estimate the bias introduced by the experimental filter. Many studies have shown this, for instance: the determination of the collision reaction plan for flow studies, determination of kinematical characteristics of the quasi-projectiles, and the excitation energy measurement stored in the hot nuclei. To Eugene, the currently utilised generator, several improvements were added: introduction of space-time correlations between the different products emitted in the decay of excited nuclei by calculating the trajectories of the particles in the final phase of the reaction; taking into account in the decay cascade of the discrete levels of the lighter fragments; the possibility of the schematically description of the explosion of the nucleus by simultaneous emission of multi-fragments. Thus, by comparing the calculations with the data relative to heavy systems studied with the NAUTILUS assembly it was possible to extract the time scales in the nuclear fragmentation. The utilisation of these event generators was extended to the analysis of INDRA data concerning the determination of the vaporization threshold in the collisions Ar + Ni and also the research of the expansion effects in the collisions Xe + Sn at 50 MeV/u

Qualitative methodology was used. Categories of analysis were created based on Pearson’s (1992 model of psychological archetypes. A relevant finding was the limited advance shown by interviewees regarding self-knowledge and a fragmented vision between the observer and the observee, which hinders their ability to take on the challenges that current reality demands from them.

  17. Power generation

    In the second half of twentieth century, nuclear power became an industrial reality. Now the operating 433 power plants, the 37 plants under construction, near 9000 years/reactor with only one serious accident with emission of radioactive material to the environment (Chernobyl) show the maturity of this technology. Today nuclear power contribute a 17% to the global generation and an increase of 75 % of the demand of electricity is estimated for 2020 while this demand is expected to triplicate by 2050. How this requirement can be satisfied? All the indicators seems to demonstrate that nuclear power will be the solution because of the shortage of other sources, the increase of the prices of the non renewable fuels and the scarce contribution of the renewable ones. In addition, the climatic changes produced by the greenhouse effect make even more attractive nuclear power. The situation of Argentina is analyzed and compared with other countries. The convenience of an increase of nuclear power contribution to the total national generation seems clear and the conclusion of the construction of the Atucha II nuclear power plant is recommended

    During 1996, 56.2 million tons of steam were produced, at an average annual rate of 6,416 tons per hour (t/h), to supply enough steam to operate of 26 geothermal-electric plants in three geothermal fields, which represent an installed capacity of 743 MW. To accomplish that production, 177 geothermal wells were operated at an average annual production of 36 t/h of steam. Electricity generation was 5,737 gigawatts-hour, which represent 3.8% of the whole electrical energy generated in Mexico in 1996. Production of steam and generation of electricity were increased in 1996, comparing with 1994 and 1995. However, unitary costs were practically the same between 1995 and 1996. The Comision Federal de Electricidad (Federal Commission for Electricity, or CFE) has programmed several geothermal- electric projects to increase the installed capacity in the fields under exploitation in new fields. Also, the CFE has some non electrical projects to reach an integral use of geothermics in Mexico. [Espanol] A fin de suministrar el vapor necesario para la generacion de 26 plantas geotermoelectricas instaladas en tres campos geotermicos, con una capacidad total de 743 megawatts (MW) durante 1996 se produjeron 56.2 millones de toneladas de vapor, a una tasa media anual de 6,416 toneladas por hora (t/h). Ello implico la operacion de 177 pozos productores, con una produccion de la energia electrica generada en Mexico en 1996. Tanto la produccion de vapor como la generacion de electricidad en 1996 se incrementaron con respecto a los anos precedentes de 1994 y 1995, pese a que los costos unitarios se mantuvieron practicamente constantes entre 1995 y 1996. La Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) tiene en programa varios proyectos geotermoelectricos para incrementar la capacidad instalada en los campos en explotacion y para iniciar el aprovechamiento en campos nuevos, asi como proyectos no electricos para conseguir un aprovechamiento integral de la geotermia en Mexico.

    Object: To recycle a coolant in a sealed hollow portion formed interiorly of a plasma limiter itself to thereby to cause direct contact between the coolant and the plasma limiter and increase of contact area therebetween to cool the plasma limiter. Structure: The heat resulting from plasma generated during operation and applied to the body of the plasma limiter is transmitted to the coolant, which recycles through an inlet and outlet pipe, an inlet and outlet nozzle and a hollow portion to hold the plasma limiter at a level less than a predetermined temperature. On the other hand, the heater wire is, at the time of emergency operation, energized to heat the plasma limiter, but this heat is transmitted to the limiter body to increase the temperature thereof. However, the coolant recycling the hollow portion comes into direct contact with the limiter body, and since the plasma limiter surround the hollow portion, the heat amount transmitted from the limiter body to the coolant increases to sufficiently cool the plasma limiter.

    A nuclear heart pacer having a heat-to-electricity converter including a solid-state thermoelectric unit embedded in rubber which is compressed to impress hydrostatic precompression on the unit is described. The converter and the radioactive heat source are enclosed in a container which includes the electrical circuit components for producing and controlling the pulses; the converter and components being embedded in rubber. The portions of the rubber in the converter and in the container through which heat flows between the radioactive primary source and the hot junction and between the cold junction and the wall of the container are of thermally conducting silicone rubber. The 238 Pu primary radioactive source material is encapsuled in a refractory casing of WC-222 (T-222) which in turn is encapsuled in a corrosion-resistant casing of platinum rhodium, a diffusion barrier separating the WC-222 and the Pt--Rh casings. The Pt--Rh casing is in a closed basket of tantalum. The tantalum protects the Pt--Rh from reacting with other materials during cremation of the host, if any. The casings and basket suppress the transmission of hard x rays generated by the alpha particles from the 238 Pu. The outside casing of the pacer is typically of titanium but its surface is covered by an electrically insulating coating, typically epoxy resin, except over a relatively limited area for effective electrical grounding to the body of the host. It is contemplated that the pacer will be inserted in the host with the exposed titanium engaging a non-muscular region of the body

    An increase in the worldwide population (roughly 6.3 billion people) has brought about a considerable increase in the demand for energy in order to meet national energy and development needs. Oil and carbon are currently the fuels that are most widely used to generate energy. Nevertheless, their extraction and transport, in addition to their combustion, produce residual pollutants, such as carbon bioxide which is released into the atmosphere and contributes to a large amount of the planet's global warming. An alternative to electric energy generation is the use of polymeric membrane fuel cells (PEMFC), which enable the use of alternative fuels such as hydrogen. This work presents the start-up of a system consisting of a photovoltage cell, an electrolyzer and a PEMFC. The photovoltage cell transforms the solar energy into electric energy which electrolyzes the water to provide hydrogen (fuel) and oxygen (combustion). An electrolyzer was designed and built and was characterized with polarization tests. The gases obtained from the electrolyzer are fed to the fuel cell designed and built in the laboratory. To apply this work, the energy produced in the fuel cell is fed to a low-power device such as the electrical charge of a mobile phone. The integration of electrochemical devices will completely revolutionize today's energy sources, which are based on oil derivatives. These integrated systems are efficient for producing electric energy without emitting gas pollutants.

    During reclaimed wastewater transportation under anaerobic conditions sulfide generation may take place, which should be avoided due to the numerous problems related to it. This is the case of the reclaimed wastewater reuse scheme of Tenerife, one of whose elements is a completely filled 61 km long gravity pipeline, 0,60 m in diameter. In order to avoid the appearance of anaerobic conditions a controlled nitrate dosage system has been designed to be installed at the pipeline inlet, with nitrate dosage to be controlled by the organic matter content of the reclaimed wastewater, using turbidity as an indicator of it.

    The nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde located in the Gulf of Mexico, completes in this 2009, nineteen years to produce by nuclear means 4.78% of the electric power that Mexico requires daily. During this time, the Unit 1 has generated more of 88.85 million mega watt-hour and the Unit 2 more of 69.48 million mega watt-hour with an availability average of 83.55%. Derived of their operation cycles, the nuclear power plant has generated (as any other installation of its type) radioactive wastes of low activity that at the moment are temporarily stored in the site. Due to the life cycle of the nuclear power plant, actually has become necessary to begin a project series focused to continue guaranteeing the storage of these wastes, guarantee that is a license requirement for the operation of this nuclear installation before the National Commission of Nuclear Security and Safeguards. The Federal Commission of Electricity beginning a project that allows continue guaranteeing space of sufficient storage for the wastes that the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde could generate for the rest of its useful life, this project consisted on a process of physical volume reduction of dry solid radioactive wastes denominated super compacting, it has made possible to reduce the volume that these wastes occupy in the temporary storage noted Dry Solid Radioactive Wastes Deposit located inside the site that occupies the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde. This work presents the super compacting results, as well as a description of the realization of this task until concluding with the super compacting of 5,854 drums with dry solid radioactive waste of low activity. We will enunciate which were the radiological controls that the Department of Radiological Protection of the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde applied to this work that was realized for first time in Mexico and the nuclear power plant.

    A solar concentrator prototype of Parabolic Trough (PT) for solar process heat generation has been designed, manufactured and put into operation by the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas. By means of a sun tracking mechanism controlled by an automatic device, the PT is moving from East to West during the day then this way the solar energy is focused continually over the lineal receiver. Such movement is reached thanks to the electronic module fitted with special software. In this paper, the design of an electronic module based on calculation algorithm of the sun position along the day and over the year which controls the PT sun tracking is presented. The main purpose of the development is to integrate a control system which is using the algorithm of low cost (it was tested in a commercial system with success).

    The transmission charges to the users must be completely defined in those systems where the restructuring has broken up the traditional functions of the companies; in order to introduce competition in the generation and commercialization segments of the electrical energy. The fundamentals of a method used are explained to assure the transmission service cases between their users. The method is based on the marginal expansion costs of the transmission network. Their more known applications have been in competitive markets of energy, in particular, where the energy price is the same one in all the localities. Nevertheless, it can be used under other forms of organization of the electrical industry. In order to illustrate results, the obtained ones from their application to the most important part of the transmission network of the Mexican system that operates interconnected, are presented. [Spanish] Los cargos de transmision a los usuarios deben estar completamente definidos en aquellos sistemas donde la reestructuracion ha desagregado las funciones tradicionales de las empresas; para introducir competencia en los segmentos de generacion y comercializacion de la energia electrica. Se explican los fundamentos de un metodo utilizado para asegurar los casos del servicio de transmision entre sus usuarios. El metodo se basa en los costos marginales de expansion de la red de transmision. Sus aplicaciones mas conocidas han sido en mercados competitivos de energia, en particular, donde el precio de la energia es el mismo en todas las localidades. Sin embargo, puede utilizarse bajo otras formas de organizacion de la industria electrica. Con el proposito de ilustrar resultados, se muestran los obtenidos de su aplicacion a la parte mas importante de la red de transmision del sistema mexicano que opera interconectada.

    This project has as purpose to know to depth the operation of a PBMR nucleo electric type (Pebble Bed Modular Reactor), which has a reactor of moderate graphite spheres and fuel of uranium dioxide cooled with Helium and Brayton thermodynamic cycle. The simulator seeks to describe the dynamics of the one process of energy generation in the nuclear fuel, the process of transport toward the coolant one and the conversion to mechanical energy in the turbo-generators as well as in the heat exchangers indispensable for the process. The dynamics of reload of the fuel elements it is not modeled in detail but their effects are represented in the parameters of the pattern. They are modeled also the turbo-compressors of the primary circuit of the work fluid. The control of the power of the nuclear reactor is modeled by means of reactivity functions specified in the simulation platform. The proposed mathematical models will be settled in the platform of simulation of Simulink-Mat Lab. The proposed control panels for this simulator can be designed and to implement using the box of tools of Simulink that facilitates this process. The work presents the mathematical models more important used for their future implementation in Simulink. (Author)

  14. Self generation, small generation, and embedded generation issues

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2001-01-01

    The New Brunswick Market Design Committee for electric power restructuring has been directed to examine issues regarding cogeneration and small-scale, on-site generation and how they will fit within the framework of the bilateral contract market. The Committee will also have to deal with issues of generation embedded in a distribution system. The Committee has defined cogeneration as the simultaneous production of electricity and useful thermal energy. Self-generation has been defined as small-scale power generation by an end-user, while embedded generation has been defined as a generation facility that is located within a distribution utility but is not directly connected to the transmission system. The Committee has postponed its decision on whether embedded generation will be eligible to participate under the bilateral contract market for electricity. This report discusses general issues such as the physical support of generation, market support of generation, transition issues and policy issues. It also discusses generation support issues such as operating reserves, transmission tariff issues, and distribution tariffs. Market support issues such as transmission access for generation sales were also considered, along with market access for generation sales, and net metering for behind the meter generation. 7 refs., 1 tab

  15. La obra de Aníbal Núñez en el contexto de la poética posmoderna española (Notas para una restitución generacional

    Full Text Available After decades of seclusion in the shadow of its promotion, Aníbal Núñez’s poetry is starting a recovery process in recent critical studies. After overcoming the restrictive premises used by poetry criticism to reduce the authors´ list and poetical tendencies of 68, the isolation of those poets —whose works did not fit in the dominant canon— is object of review in current historiography of Spanish contemporary poetry. This return to the once-excluded poets is essential to understand the plurality of discourses which make up the generation of 68: it is necessary to revive their voices of discord in order to outline their whole aesthetic scene. In the light of the innovative theoretic-critical paradigm of Spanish postmodern poetry, the works by Aníbal Núñez may be fully part of the creative scene of his generation, without forgetting the peculiarities which distinguish his poetic writing.Tras décadas de reclusión en la zona umbrosa de su promoción, la poesía de Aníbal Núñez está iniciando un proceso de recuperación en los estudios críticos recientes. Superadas ya las restrictivas premisas con que la crítica redujo la nómina de autores y tendencias poéticas del 68, el aislamiento de los poetas cuya obra no encajaba en el canon hegemónico es objeto de revisión en la actual historiografía de la poesía española contemporánea. Esta restitución de los excluidos es esencial para entender la pluralidad de los discursos que componen la generación del 68: recuperar sus voces discordantes es necesario para trazar su escenario estético completo. A la luz del innovador paradigma teórico-crítico de la poética posmoderna española, los libros de Aníbal Núñez pueden insertarse plenamente en el panorama creador de su generación, sin menoscabo de las peculiaridades que singularizan su escritura poética.

    Full Text Available El artículo presenta un marco teórico para entender la evolución de los distritos industriales desde la conceptualización de Marshall hasta las actua - les realidades y teorizaciones del distrito industrial como modelo de organización industrial y desarrollo. Discutimos tres generaciones de distritos industriales: la primera generación de distritos fueron las semillas para la primera revolución in - dustrial. La segunda generación correspondió a la reemergencia de los distritos industriales en países avanzados e industrializados durante la segunda mitad del siglo xx , después de la edad de oro de la producción en masa. La tercera y actual generación no es una cuestión de evidencia histórica, sino que está siendo revela - da recurriendo a la observación científica. Sostendremos que cada generación de distritos industriales ha emergido y crecido en correspondencia con específicas condiciones tecnológicas, institucionales y de mercado.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Se investigó si la aculturación de los inmigrantes y sus descendientes y la generación a la que pertenecen, un marcador de la asimilación, se relacionan con el riesgo de diabetes en una población de adultos mayores de ascendencia u origen mexicano. MÉTODOS: Se analizaron los datos sobre 1 789 adultos de 60 a 101 años de edad del Estudio sobre Envejecimiento en Latinos del Área de Sacramento (estudio SALSA. Se determinó la presencia de diabetes tipo 2 con base en el uso de medicamentos antidiabéticos, la mención por el paciente del diagnóstico de un médico, o una glucosa en ayunas de 126 mg/dl o mayor. Se aplicó un modelo de regresión logística para la prevalencia de diabetes. RESULTADOS: Tras ajustar por edad y sexo, se observaron asociaciones significativas pero divergentes entre las generaciones de inmigrantes y sus descendientes, la aculturación y el riesgo de diabetes. En relación con los adultos de la primera generación, los de la segunda tuvieron una razón de posibilidades (odds ratio, OR de padecer diabetes de 1,8 (intervalo de confianza [IC] de 95% = 1,4, 2,4 y los adultos de la tercera generación tuvieron una OR de 2,1 (IC de 95% = 1,4, 3,1. Sin embargo, una mayor aculturación a los Estados Unidos se relacionó con una tasa ligeramente menor de diabetes. En el modelo completo, tras la incorporación de ajustes para tener en cuenta los factores socioeconómicos y del modo de vida, la relación entre la generación y la diabetes seguía siendo significativa, no así la relación de esta última con la aculturación. CONCLUSIONES: El presente estudio respalda la idea, anteriormente cuestionada, de que la asimilación se relaciona con un mayor riesgo de diabetes entre los inmigrantes de origen mexicano. Los investigadores deben analizar más detalladamente la presencia de una relación causal entre la asimilación y la salud.

    ahorro en el consumo de energia electrica. El analisis de este estudio demuestra que el uso de biogas a traves de biodigestores para la generacion de energia electrica, es una opcion rentable para el tratamiento de los residuos, pues el ingreso por la venta de composta, harina de sangre, asi como la disminucion de la tarifa electrica, justifica la inversion inicial. Estos proyectos, seran mas atractivos, si utilizan financiamientos y se inscriben como proyectos MDL.

    formulation of a controller feedback multivariable is presented, designed with the combination of the technologies of fuzzy logic and neural networks with the purpose of improving the control of speed, power and temperature of the UTG. This proposed control is used in conjunction with the scheme of conventional control of the existent UTG, to integrate a strategy of control hybrid feedback. The control feedback is compound for a fuzzy inference system of multiple entrances and a left exit designed with entrance data and exit of the plant. The controller feed forward is compound for conventional controllers type PI in this type of units. With this strategy, the controller feedback provides a bigger contribution in the control sign the effort of the conventional controllers' PI control and the strong interaction that it exists among them diminishing. The controllers PI feed forward contribute a smaller control sign used for fine adjustments in the control sign.

    Distributed power generation is a technology that could help to enable efficient, renewable energy production both in the developed and developing world. It includes all use of small electric power generators, whether located on the utility system, at the site of a utility customer, or at an isolated site not connected to the power grid. Induction generators (IGs) are the cheapest and most commonly used technology, compatible with renewable energy resources. Permanent magnet (PM) generators have traditionally been avoided due to high fabrication costs; however, compared with IGs they are more reliable and productive. Distributed Generation thoroughly examines the principles, possibilities and limitations of creating energy with both IGs and PM generators. It takes an electrical engineering approach in the analysis and testing of these generators, and includes diagrams and extensive case study examples o better demonstrate how the integration of energy sources can be accomplished. The book also provides the ...
