Mathematical Problems in Engineering , 2014, DOI: 10.1155/2014/687568
Abstract: Ultra high voltage (UHV) power transmission construction project is a high-tech power grid construction project which faces many risks and uncertainty. Identifying the risk of UHV power transmission construction project can help mitigate the risk loss and promote the smooth construction. The risk evaluation on “Zhejiang-Fuzhou” UHV power transmission construction project was performed based on analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and fuzzy comprehensive evaluation (FCE) method in this paper. After the risk evaluation index system was built, the AHP was used to determine the weights of risk indicators, and the FCE method was to perform the risk evaluation. The evaluation result shows that (1) “Zhejiang-Fuzhou” UHV power transmission construction project has moderate risk, which indicates the occurrence probability of project risk is medium and the risk occurrence will cause general loss for project, (2) “society risk” has the highest level, and the next is “policy and law risk,” “technique risk,” “natural environmental risk,” and “Management risk,” respectively, and it should keep main eye on the social risk, policy and law risk, and technique risk. Finally, according to the risk evaluation result, the specific risk control recommendations were proposed for the smooth construction of this project. 1. Introduction The energy resource distribution and energy consumption pattern in China are inconsistent. The regions with abundant energy resources are usually far from the economy-developed regions with large energy consumption [1]. Facing the current situations, such as the coal-dominated energy structure, reverse distribution between energy production and consumption, and the rapid development of renewable energy industry, China needs to build the strong power grid to realize the optimal configuration of different energy resources in larger area, and then the electricity demands of the social economic development as well as people’s livelihood can be met. The current 500?kV power grid in China is limited for the long-distance and large-volume electricity power transmission, and it is difficult to efficiently transmit the electricity power generated by the western hydropower base and the north coal-power base to the central and eastern regions of China. Therefore, to advance the harmonious development of both the economy and society, building the ultra high voltage (UHV) power transmission system with the transmission capacity of long distance, high capacity and low loss is of great importance, which can promote the intensification development of large-scale

The commissioning of Southern Hami-Zhengzhou ±800 kV UHVDC transmission project has important significance to heighten operation reliability, transfer capability and supply electric ability of Henan power grid. However, short circuit currents of 500 kV buses in the Center of Henan are almost close to the operation upper limitation. In order to decrease the short circuit currents effectively, it’s necessary to strengthen the network structure of Center of Henan power grid and calculate short circuit currents. Two schemes of strengthening the network structure of Center of Henan power grid are studied. The calculated values of short circuit currents of some important 500 kV buses in the two schemes are still bigger than excepted. According to the latest Plan of State Grid, Yubei UHV substation and Zhumadian UHV substation located in Henan power grid. The calculated values of short circuit currents of some important 500 kV buses with the commissioning of Yubei UHV and Zhumadian UHV are qualified. So, reasonable network structure with UHV is suitable to heighten transfer capability and supply electric ability of Henan power grid.

International Journal of Business and Management , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v3n5p3
Abstract: The management of culture has become increasingly important to many organisations and business disciplines, particularly multicultural and international project management. Cultural differences often result in varying degrees of conflict and require careful consideration. This study surveys 116 Project Managers using the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument to determine their approach toward managing conflict. Indian, French and UK Project Managers’ conflict management style are correlated with Hofstede’s description of their cultural characteristics. We find that significant links between the cultural dimensions of Individualism and Masculinity with the propensity for Project Managers to adopt a Competitive style of conflict management. We also find Uncertainty Avoidance correlates with a tendency for Project Managers to adopt an Avoiding approach to conflict management. Other relationships are found between Hofstede’s cultural dimensions and conflict management styles in Project Managers but their meaning requires further study.

International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology , 2012,
Abstract: A project delivery system is a comprehensive process of assigning the contractual responsibilities for designing and constructing a project. Design-Bid-Build (D-B-B), Design-Build (D-B), and Construction Management at risk (CM- at - Risk) are the three principal project delivery systems. Agency CM is as a construction management system, and is a way to manage the process of construction. Agency-CM doesn’t take any performance risk in guaranteeing project cost, project schedule and project quality. Generally Agency CM is remunerated on monthly fee/ lump sum fee or by the percentage of the project cost that has conflict of interest with the final project schedule and final project cost. Considerable amount of fee is paid to the Agency CM in order to improve the efficiency of the project. This necessitates a comprehensive investigation in to the performance of projects delivered with Agency CM and projects delivered without Agency CM. Agency-CM can be used with any type of Project Delivery system. This paper presents the evaluation of the project performance metrics such as Project Cost, Project Schedule and Project quality where CM –at - Risk Project Delivery System was used with Agency CM and without Agency CM. It compared the Cost Growth, Time Growth, and quality performance of 200 CM-at-Risk projects of which 100 projects where Agency CM was used and 100 projects where Agency CM was not used. Analysis of data pertaining to project performance metrics was done by using SPSS statistical software. An understanding of this study may help an owner/client better select the suitable CM-at-Risk Project Delivery System either with or without Agency Construction Management.

Abstract: Recently, plant construction throughout the world, including nuclear power plant construction, has grown significantly. The scale of Korea’s nuclear power plant construction in particular, has increased gradually since it won a contract for a nuclear power plant construction project in the United Arab Emirates in 2009. However, time and monetary resources have been lost in some nuclear power plant construction sites due to lack of risk management ability. The need to prevent losses at nuclear power plant construction sites has become more urgent because it demands professional skills and large-scale resources. Therefore, in this study, the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP) were applied in order to make comparisons between decision-making methods, to assess the potential risks at nuclear power plant construction sites. To suggest the appropriate choice between two decision-making methods, a survey was carried out. From the results, the importance and the priority of 24 risk factors, classified by process, cost, safety, and quality, were analyzed. The FAHP was identified as a suitable method for risk assessment of nuclear power plant construction, compared with risk assessment using the AHP. These risk factors will be able to serve as baseline data for risk management in nuclear power plant construction projects.
