Testing through Fall of Potential with High Current Injection in Grounding System in Transmission Line of 500 kV of Santo Antonio HPS  [PDF]
Carlos Magno B. Araújo, Luiz H. P. C. Trondoli
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1103323
This paper presents the application of grounding resistance measurement by fall of potential with high current injection, applied to the Transmission Line (TL) of 500 kV of Santo Antonio Hydroelectric Power Station (HPS), located in the city of Porto Velho/RO, for the commissioning of the power house grounding system in Generation Group (GG2) and TL during construction of the referred project. Based on measurements obtained in field, computer simulations were performed to assess the effectiveness of the grounding system on future fault scenarios of the TL, as well as the suitability of relevant protection functions. The computer simulations are based on the model developed for TL 500 kV of GG2, and are performed using the PSCAD/EMTDC software, including the grounding values derived from the design of high current injection, according to (IEEE Std 80-2013). In order to attest the efficacy of both GG2 grounding system and TL from the HPS, COMTRADE files, obtained by the software, were used in the simulator Doble 6150 for the design of distinct fault conditions in a SEL-421 relay. Results indicate the correct functioning of relay SEL-421, corroborating the effectiveness of both grounding system and measurement method.
Institutions for collaboration in industrial clusters: proposal of a per-formance and change management model
Luiz C. R. Carpinetti,Rafael H. P. Lima
International Journal of Production Management and Engineering , 2013, DOI: 10.4995/ijpme.2013.1502
Abstract: This paper proposes a performance and change management model for institutions for collaboration (IFCs) in industrial clusters to assist them while planning, conducting and evaluating joint actions. A three-stage implementation scheme and a self-assessment tool that helps an IFC determine its compliance with the proposed model are also introduced. The self-assessment tool was applied in three Brazilian IFCs from different clusters. It was found that the IFCs researched face major difficulties in designing and implementing performance measures to evaluate the results and impacts of joint actions. However, IFCs have been successful in identifying local infrastructure and devising informal strategic plans.

Abstract: in this paper, the effects of acrylamide (aam), methylcellulose (mc) contents, ph and ionic strength on kinetic, network and hydrophilic properties of polyacrylamide and methylcellulose hydrogels were investigated. the hydrogels were characterized by evaluating of network [average molecular weight between crosslinks (mc), crosslink density (q) and the number of elastically effective chains (ve)], and kinetic parameters [diffusional exponent (n), diffusion constant (k) and diffusion coefficient (d)]. such properties were controlled by adjusting of the aam, mc contents, ph and ionic strength factors. due to high hydrophilicity and fast water-uptake, the paam-mc hydrogels can be considered as materials for potential applications in agricultural fields, mainly in controlled release of water or pesticides.
Poly(imide)/Organically-Modified Montmorillonite Nanocomposite as a Potential Membrane for Alkaline Fuel Cells
Liliane C. Battirola,Luiz H. S. Gasparotto,Ubirajara P. Rodrigues-Filho,Germano Tremiliosi-Filho
Membranes , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/membranes2030430
Abstract: In this work we evaluated the potentiality of a poly(imide) (PI)/organically-modified montmorillonite (O-MMT) nanocomposite membrane for the use in alkaline fuel cells. Both X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy revealed a good dispersion of O-MMT into the PI matrix and preservation of the O-MMT layered structure. When compared to the pure PI, the addition of O-MMT improved thermal stability and markedly increased the capability of absorbing electrolyte and ionic conductivity of the composite. The results show that the PI/O-MMT nanocomposite is a promising candidate for alkaline fuel cell applications.

Abstract: the hydrological behavior of watersheds derives mainly from climate variability and land use. the 'ribeir?o jo?o leite' watershed is the main sourse of water supply in goiania city, and recently intense modifications were observed in the land use and availability of water. in this context, this work proposes to classify the land use between 1979 and 2005 and establish the association of the runoff with the land use and climate variability. for this, landsat images from the years 1979, 1989, 1997 and 2005 were used as well as flow and rainfall data provided by the agência nacional de água (ana). the land use was marked by 17.8% of deforestation, expansion of the urbanization and agriculture corresponded to 6.6 and 15.2%, respectively, and by significant areas of pasture. a trend of reduction in flow was observed that could be explained, in part, by a reduction in the rainfall regime. however, due to the significant increase of water withdrawal and the lack of historical records, there was difficulty in qualitative association between the runoff and the land use in spite of generating linear regression models with coefficients of determination (r2) above 0.75.

Abstract: Stimulated optical luminescence (SOL) was applied in dating coastal sediments in northeastern Brasil and revealed that the evolution of aeolic deposits in the region can be divided in 4 stages related to climate changes occurred during the quaternary leading to sea level changes, which modeled the coastline since the end of the Higher Pleistocene to present. The first stage dated back from 108,000 ± 11,000 years to 103,000 ± 9.000 anos B.P. (Before Present), but related mas que está relacionado ao máximo da Penúltima Transgress o, que aconteceu no Pleistoceno Médio, por volta de 123.000 anos, evento marcado por eros o dos depósitos mais antigos. O segundo estágio revelado pelas idades de 25.000 a 18.100 anos A.P, está relacionado à forma o do vasto campo de dunas, que alcan aram cerca de 160 km da linha de costa e que fixaram no terceiro estágio (14.000 a 12.000 anos A.P). O quarto estágio é representado pelas dunas móveis dos Len óis Maranhenses, que podem ter se formado há pelo menos 3.000 anos A.P.
