Abstract: It aims an inventive plan to formulate a system based on AVR micro controller that is applied for observing the voltage, current and temperature of a distribution transformer in a substation and to guard the system from the rise in mentioned parameters. Affording the security to the distribution transformer can be achieved by closing down the whole unit with the assist of the Radio frequency Communication. Additionally the system exhibits the same on a PC at the central station which is at a remote place. it is capable of recognizing the break downs caused due to overload, high temperature and over voltage. The blueprint generally comprises of two units, one in the substation unit, called as transmitter and display unit, and another in the Main station called as controlling unit.

Abstract: An Aluminum based in-situ alloy reinforced with Mg2Si and Si hard particles produced by casting Al-6Si-0.5Mg alloy. The microstructure, tensile properties and fracture behavior of the alloy were investigated and the results show that the Mg2Si and Si hard particles produced by precipitation hardening have great effects. The homogenized (24hr at 500oC) and solutionized (2hr at 540oC) cast alloy was subjected to ageing treatment from room temperature to 300oC. The yield strength and fracture strength of the alloy increase with the increase of ageing temperature where as ductility and impact toughness decreases up to peakaged condition (1hr at 225oC). The microstructure of broken tensile specimen shows both the particle fracture and interface de-bonding affect the fracture behavior of the alloy.

Abstract: Reporting the incidents to authorities in developing countries that can take actions has been a chaotic and slow process. This paper proposes an algorithm for a system that automatically reports events that compromise passengers' safety to respective authorities by using spherical cosine rule. When an incident such as an accident, over speeding or overloading of passengers occurs the system identifies the closest police station. It does so by calculating the shortest distance between latitudes and longitudes of the place where the event occurred and those of the closest police station. Then it identifies the next police station which the bus will encounter and where the event can be reported and immediate action carried out. The public buses will be equipped with GPS which will generate coordinates and there will be a database which contains the coordinates for the police stations along the main roads.

Abstract: The study was done on Jatropha bio fuel stove technology. The study deals with comprehensive literature review followed by technical modifications. The wick stove proto type designed for kerosene burning was chosen for the study. The concepts for preliminary design and pre-modifications were drawn on the basis of observations received during testing of proto type to burn with Jatropha oil. Then final modifications of the wick stove were performed technically to make it compatible with burning Jatropha oil. The proto type after modifications contained 1.5 liters tank with three supporting stands. It contained wick burning mechanism exposed with loose 10 single rope cotton woven wicks each of diameter 5 -5.5 mm arranged in a ring. The length of wick was adjusted to 4.5 cm so that the jatropha oil can transport upward easily. The multi-wick mechanism allows for air flow to occur around its enclosed stilt barrel configuration. This has the effect of reducing heat transfer to the fuel vessel and reduces the potential fuel loss in the vessel through evaporation. The cooling effect on the stilt wick reduces the transfer of heat to the fuel vessel, and thus the fuel within the fuel vessel remains below the dangerous flashpoint temperature even after long periods of use. Closer to the top of the enclosed stilt areas become hot during stove use. This has the effect of heating up the air that enters the burning area, thus making the stove more efficient.

Abstract: Energy efficiency is very specific to end-use applications or particular systems. However, on an aggregate economy wide basis, energy efficiency does not provide a useful measure for comparison due to variations in the structure of energy supply and the end-use energy applications. Reduction in energy intensity is a part of the sustainable development program since it is closely linked to the management of climate change. With recent economic expansion, construction investment growth in India is forecasted at 12% overall and 23% in the commercial sector. India will add 80% of the total floor space estimated for 2030. Without a concerted effort to reduce energy intensity in buildings, the additional demand for electricity will exacerbate the chronic power shortage situation in India. Indian policymakers have started a three-pronged approach to market transformation, i.e. rating systems to recognize leaders in energy efficiency, financial incentive programs to move the middle of the market, and codes and standards to raise the entire market to desired efficiency levels. This paper reviews the status of these activities and the infrastructure for setup, scaling and compliance for each market transformation approach. Recognizing the challenges in India and using lessons learned from past experiences, we present recommendations for Indian policymakers to enable rapid market transformation in the building energy efficiency sector.

Abstract: An entomological surveillance carried out (March-12 to July-12) to record the mosquito species and their status in Jahangirnagar University (JU) campus. A total 14 species under 6 different species identified. The recorded genera were Anopheles (An), Culex (Cx), Aedes (Ae), Armigeres (Ar), Mansonia (Mn) and Toxorhynchites (Tx).The collected species were Cx. quinquefasciatus, Cx. tritaeniorhynchus, Cx. fuscocephala, Cx. vishnui, Cx. gelidus, Cx. hasensoni, An. annularies, An. vagus, Ae. aegypti, Ae. albopictus, Ar. subalbatus, Tx. splendens, Mn. annulifera, Mn. uniformis. Among the adult mosquitoes Cx. tritaeniorhynchus showed the highest density and Tx. splendens showed the lowest density .High number of Ae. Albopictus were recorded from study area, which is the secondary vector of dengue viruses.

Abstract: There is some rate of distortion in the projected plane coordinates obtained by GPS. The coordinates obtained using terrestrial devices such as Total Station depends on the direct angular observations and distances measurements on the surface of the earth assumed as plane surface. Using different observation systems (terrestrial survey and GPS survey) yields discrepancies in the obtained results for the same location due to the variation of the observation sources and the technology used by each system. The discrepancy that exists in the measured results must be removed to obtain conformity of them by deriving scale factor which is the main objective of this study. This paper covers the procedure of integration between the Electronic Total Station and the Global Positioning System (GPS) and their use in surveying engineering projects. In this paper the author used Total Station and the Global Positioning System (GPS) commonly using observations of common points with the two systems (Total Station and the GPS receivers) to get the horizontal position difference and the scale factor between the Total Station and the GPS coordinates. The results showed that the difference as a distant scale factor for the considered area in Sudan is typical to the published international scale factor.

Abstract: Rate of carbon sequestration or annual uptake was modeled. Data from Mississippi Delta, ponderosa pine and black walnut, all in USA were used to validate the models. The co-relations of these models for these three sources of data were very high, suggesting that carbon sequestration is modelable and predictable provided that there is a perfect experimental method to capture and sequester the carbon compound with time. This work is a stepping stone to solving carbon capture and sequestration problem of our planet earth. Through a global engineering and technology it is feasible.
