The facility was operated under a lease arrangement by the Weweantic Hydro Associated (Essex Turbine Company, Inc.) as a power producing plant until 1997. It underwent major work in 1976 and 1977 however the current condition is only fair to poor. The Town of Wareham allows that the awardee of the Tremont Mill Pond Dam may wish to negotiate for operation of alternative and renewable energy generationfacilities, in accordance with federal [FERC] and State rules, should the production of energy prove commercially feasible at this location.
The RIKEN RI Beam Factory, one of the new generationfacilities, is now in operation. Although the capability of RI-beam production is yet to be optimized, its performance is already intriguing. Newly proposed facilities set their goals for the RI production capability at higher and higher levels. The maximum beam power, which is not directly related to the RI-beam intensity, should give a rough idea of it (the present value for the RIBF is about 10 kW). The design goals of the maximum beam power for future facilities are, for example, 400 kW for FRIB are 5 MW for EURISOL, which are much higher than RIBF. Such an important but tough challenge might help to extend our knowledge of the atomic nucleus and of nuclear interactions. Nuclear matter properties with large proton-neutron asymmetry will also be within experimental reach.
The management of reactive resources, in particular the generationfacilities under control of ISO , plays an important role in maintaining voltage stability and system reliability. This paper presents a practical, market-based solution to determine the cost of reactive power by system operators. Three distinct features of the proposed solution are: 1) obligating generationfacilities to provide reactive services in proportion to their active power output; 2) optimizing and integrating the reactive power cost with market operation for least-cost solution; and 3) taking into account the interactions of active and reactive powers for accurate calculation of the lost opportunity costs of generators.
Similarly, with a coefficient of performance of 0.002073617, plant performance/efficiency was worst in the years 2002–2006. Using the traditional method of calculating efficiency the values of 0.2613 and 0.2516 were obtained for years 2002–2006 and 2007–2011 respectively. The result is remarkable because given the state of the facilities, it correctly predicted the period of expected high system performance i.e. 2002–2006 periods, but the traditional efficiency measurement method failed to do so. Ordinarily, using efficiency values obtained through the traditional method as the metric, the system managers would assume that the period 2002– 2006 was better than in the period 2007–2011 whereas the reverse is the case. The result of this study is expected to open new ways to improving maintenance effectiveness and efficiency of gas power generationfacilities.
In this paper we exposed our current work on taking advantage of multicore platforms for added capacity, flex- ibility and safety in time- and space-partitioned (TSP) systems. The presented work encompasses architectural support to multicore in TSP systems; we use the AIR architecture for TSP systems in aerospace applications as a reference, but the functionality and mechanisms we propose apply to TSP systems in general . From the real-time scheduling point of view, the crucial components of our proposal are the notions of interpartition parallelism and intrapartition parallelism . A great deal of our current concerns goes to the provision of adequate tools to support the development and integration of TSP systems — both those going by the current state of the art and those which will implement the multicore facets we propose, namely inter- and intrapartition parallelism. We envision extending the Cheddar tool  to provide real- time scheduling analysis and partition scheduling table (PST) generationfacilities for TSP systems integrators and application developers. Cheddar is a mature real-time scheduling analysis tool with limited support for TSP systems, and designed to be extended as the main building block of a full-featured schedule analysis and generation tool for TSP system development and integration.
Restricted investments consist of assets maintained in an external investment pool administered by external foundations under agreements with the colleges within the System. These funds are invested in accordance with policies and procedures established by the Board of Regents, Endowed Professorship Program, and are reported at fair value in accordance with GASB Statement No. 31. Restricted investments also consist of endowments and similar-type accounts for which donors or other outside sources have stipulated that, as a condition of the gift instrument, the principal is to be maintained inviolate and in perpetuity. Changes in the carrying value of investments, resulting from unrealized gains and losses, are reported as a component of investment income in the Statement of Revenues, Expenses, and Changes in Net Position, except for the investments of the facilities corporations where gains and losses are reported as a component of the amount capitalized to capital assets, as required by FASB 62. For purposes of the Statement of Cash Flows, the System considers all highly-liquid investments (including restricted assets) with a maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents.
We have audited the financial statements of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System, a component unit of the State of Louisiana, as of and for the year ended June 30, 2011, and have issued our report thereon dated December 14, 2011. Our report was modified to include a reference to other auditors. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Other auditors audited the financial statements of the South Louisiana Facilities Corporation; the BRCC Facilities Corporation; Campus Facilities, Inc.; Delta Campus Facilities Corporation; and LCTCS Facilities Corporation, as described in our report on the Louisiana Community and Technical College System’s financial statements. This report does not include the results of the other auditors’ testing of internal control over financial reporting or compliance and other matters that are reported on separately by those auditors.
There are several factors that determine whether or not a WTE plant is suitable for a location. These include the region's economic strength; the national policies and laws regarding the handling of MSW; environmental regulations; the infrastructure required to build, supply and maintain a WTE facility; and the public's perception . Municipal jurisdiction usually controls the handling of MSW in a specific region; however, some states have national policies that influence those regions. In other countries municipalities are left to decide on the handling process, possibly leaving the region with low formal recycling rates and a lack of MSW services. A large possible obstacle to the building of a WTE plant is the negative public perception of such facilities. Since the implementation of strict regulations on WTE facilities, these facilities have significantly improved their emissions..
Previous study mention that park accesibility is an important value in encouraging visitors interest to visit a park in almost all urban park studies . Other study also note that feature or park facilities, aesthetic value of park, and perception on safety in urban park are also part of park characteristics that take effect on visitors physical activities while in a park . So in this research, we try to compose concept for active park arrangement that can fulfill and encourage active recreation activity in Gubeng Sub-District active parks.
Production data correspond to average generation rates varying in the range 1,1-2,6 kg/bed/d, which is comparable with the values reported in other studies (Lee et al., 2004; Jang, 2011), but is double the results of Komilis et al. (2012) for Greek hospitals. Similarly, Elimelech et al. (2011) estimated for Israeli facilities a daily generation rate one order of magnitude lower than the one found in this study. The different generation rates in different countries depend on several factors, including types of healthcare service, the amount of disposable or reusable medical devices, the existence of enforced regulations and the consequent medical waste management policies.
One of the Facilities Manager's primary responsibilities is providing and managing a range of services to his or her 'customers', that is, the employees within the organisation - whether the FM is employed by that organisation or by an external partner. These services may span the spectrum from security and M&E, through cleaning and catering, to plants and landscaping. Increasingly, such services are outsourced; in other words, purchased from and delivered by dedicated suppliers - a practice that has grown and developed in parallel with the rise of facilities management itself.
generation where excess renewable energy generated by a consumer within a certain range can be sold to a nearby distribution network The sales to the grid have the benefit of a reduction in the LCOE, as indicated by equation 3. Though the excess may not always be eliminated (or sold to the grid) as it will be wasted when less than 1 MW if optimum battery capacity by design could not take care of this excess. The analysis reveals that the effect of solar panel on the total NPC is averagely about 52% for the north-west region, while 42% is related to battery’s initial, maintenance and replacement costs with the remaining borne by the converter. With the present rate of decline in prices of solar panels, therefore, the effect on life cycle cost will progressively decline which will make PV systems much more competitive with grid electricity. Fig. 3 also makes a comparison between total NPC and initial capital cost and reveals that both costs follow the same pattern, which is due to all sites using the same technology, though the initial costs are less than NPC for each site.
the direct effect (0.008) arising from destination image on tourist loyalty. Conclusion by improving the image of the destination, Bromo TenggerSemeru visitor satisfaction will also increase and further this increase will also be followed by an increase in tourist loyalty. The concept of destination image which is a number of images, beliefs, perceptions and thoughts of tourists towards a destination that involves a variety of products and related travel destination attributes is very important so that visitors who come to the Bromo TenggerSemeru tourist attractions are satisfied. And in the end the customer's commitment remains in depth to re-subscribe or re-purchase selected products / services consistently in the future. Likewise, the millennial age that is the sample in this study, which daily uses information technology to get quality and interesting information, is one of the magnets to make millennials visit Bromo TenggerSemeru National Park. Hypotesis 7 (H7), Table 3 shows that visitor satisfaction as a moderating variable between tourist facilities on tourist loyalty can be seen from the amount of indirect effect (0.223) compared to the direct effect (0.369) arising from tourist facilities on tourist loyalty. This means that by applying or prioritizing better facilities in tourist attractions will have a direct and more effective impact on increasing the loyalty or loyalty of tourists visiting Bromo TenggerSemeru, and ultimately the visitors themselves will determine the level of satisfaction obtained.
