The Study of Using the Opaque Wall Material to Manage Overall Thermal Transfer for the Heritage Hospital Façade in Bangkok

Many hospitals in Bangkok metropolitan districts are awaken to the global warming crisis. It results that the temperature in the winter is closed to the summer. The following effect is that the old hospital buildings, are confronting the energy over consumption than ever. In particular, the old facades are needed renovation to preserve comfortable condition.

Optimized Approaches to Urban Spatial Form Design for Better Ventilation- A Study in Changzhou, China

Rapid urbanization process has brought about a global challenge in the ecological environment, such as air pollution and “Urban Heat Island Effect”. On one side, climate is one of the most important elements that maintains human survival and production, and also the key factor of spatial morphology. On the other side, different spatial forms also

Role of Corporate Social Responsibility in Hospitals to Improve Environmental Sustainability

Businesses have started integrating CSR as a critical strategy in their core operations, plans, and activities to promote sustainability. Hospitals are one such domain where it is inevitable to be socially responsible with its daily operations. It is also essential to understand the impact of environmental CSR initiatives in the context of hospitals. Despite this,

Study on Partial Discharges Features Evolution of Underground Cable Joints during Insulation Degradation

Underground cables are significant links in metropolitan power systems. Hence, any cable accident can cause high economic losses and disruption of service to customers. Recently, the condition-based maintenance (CBM) method proposed to improve the weakness of time-based maintenance becomes feasible in smart grid, which optimizes and improves the reliability of power systems. This paper focuses

Cost and Benefit Optimization on Installation of Distribution Feeders Voltage Control Equipment considering Distributed Generations

The primary purpose of this study is to explore the impacts of distributed generation (DG) interconnections on distribution systems in Taiwan. To build a DG-friendly distribution system for the development of DGs, a genetic algorithm with Pareto optimality is utilized to analyze the cost and benefit of installing a distribution feeder voltage control equipment that

Soil Carbon Contents of Teak Plantation in Agroforestry Farming of Ban Tham Suea, Kaeng Krachan District, Phetchaburi Province, Thailand

Increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide is a serious global environmental concern. Teak plantation can store substantial amount of carbon. Soil carbon contents and properties were studied in 3, 6 and 13-years-old teak plantations located in agroforestry farming areas of Ban Tham Suea, Kaeng Krachan District, Phetchaburi Province. Soil samples were collected at  0-30 cm depth

Study of Façade Treatment for Optimum Daylight Usage in Open Plan Offices in Context of Dhaka

Electricity consumption is the highest energy drainer when it comes to artificial lighting used in offices even though maximum office-hour coincides during the day time. Although few simple design inclusions in the initial phase of designing can reduce electricity consumption as well as add bonus effects such as physiological and psychological improvement through use of

Investigation of the Best-case Scenario of Rice Husk/Briquette Combustion for Lower Particulate Matter Emission

Air pollution has been a major cause of diseases and deaths, especially in developing countries, due to their inability to afford cleaner sources of energy. Biomass such as agricultural residues is combusted, using inefficient combustion techniques, characterized by high emission of particulate matter (PM) and smoke, which have adverse effects on human health. This study

Assessment of Maximum Permissible Capacity of Distributed Generations Connected to a Distribution Grid with Feeder Voltage Control Equipment

The main purpose of this paper is to assess the maximum permissible capacity of distributed generations (DGs) connected to distribution systems with feeder voltage control equipment by dual genetic algorithm (DGA) in Taiwan. The DGA is adopted to deal with the uncertainty problems of distribution system operating states. The DGA can be subdivided into two
