    Interest in Additive Manufacturing (AM) has grown considerably in the past decades. The industry has gained the great benefits from this type of technologies. The main advantages being geometrical freedom that allows ...
  • Makanda, Gilbert; Sibanda, Precious (International Journal of Mathematical and Computational Methods, 2016)
    In the present study, a numerical analysis on free convection Casson fluid flow from a spinning cone in non-Darcy porous medium with radiation, partial slip, cross diffusion and viscous dissipation is considered. The surface ...
  • Hassan, M. Mostafa; Adedeji, J.A. (China: Proceedings of the 5th International conference on civil engineering and urban planning (CEUP 2016), 2016)
    Flexible pavement is usually designed to last for at least 20 years, however sometimes the first failure is formed after the first year of use. This failure has been associated with; overloading of the structure, use of ...
  • Raath, Johan; Mouton, Toit; Geyer, Tobias (IEEE Xplore: International Symposium on Predictive Control of Electrical Drives and Power Electronics (PRECEDE), 2017)
    It is widely accepted that model predictive control (MPC) with long prediction horizons yields, in general, a better performance than with short horizons. In the context of power electronic systems, the main advantages ...
  • Kusakana, Kanzumba (IEEE Xplore: PowerAfrica, IEEE PES, 2016)
    In this work, the optimal power scheduling for a grid-connected photovoltaic-battery hybrid system is proposed to sufficiently explore solar energy and to benefit customers at demand side. The developed model for the ...
  • Kusakana, Kanzumba (IEEE PES PowerAfrica, 2017)
    In this paper, optimal scheduling and energy management concepts are used to demonstrate the operational cost saving achievable using multiple paralleled diesel generators over a “Single” diesel generator unit for ...
  • Unknown author (Springer International Publishing AG: Smart Energy Grid Design for Island Countries, 2017)
    Photovoltaic and wind systems have been demonstrated to be sustainable alternatives of producing electricity in rural electrification, particularly in islanded applications. Currently, the advancement of research in the ...
