  • Benchmarking on Water Resource Utilization Efficiency of Prefecture-Level
           Cities in Jiangxi, China: A Bootstrap-DEA Approach with Three-Stage DEA

    • Abstract: China has long been adopted traditional data envelopment analysis (DEA) models to measure water resources utilization efficiency of different provinces and cities without bias correction of efficiency scores. In this study, the Bootstrap-DEA approach embedded 3-stage DEA models was introduced to analyze the comprehensive efficiency of water resources utilization in the different prefecture-level cities Jiangxi and tried to improve the application of this method for benchmarking and inter-regional research. It is found that the bias corrected efficiency scores of Bootstrap-DEA differ significantly from those of the traditional DEA model, which implies that Chinese researchers need to update their DEA models for more scientific calculation of water resources utilization efficiency scores. This research has helped narrow the inter-regional gap in the comprehensive efficiency measurement and improvement of water resources utilization. It is suggested that Bootstrap-DEA embedded 3-stage DEA models be widely applied into afterward research to measure comprehensive efficiency of water resources utilization in regional inter-city so as to better serve for efficiency improvement and related decision making.

  • Multi-Layered Cloud Distribution Over Tropical Station Using Radiosonde
           Humidity Observations and CloudSat Measurements

    • Abstract: Owing to its importance of role played by multi-layered clouds in climate of earth’s atmosphere, a decadal observation (January, 2000 to December, 2009) from India Meteorological Department, Trivandrum regular radiosonde (00 & 12 UTC) ascents and CloudSat observations were used to study the distribution of multi-layered cloud formation at this location. Both the ground and space based observations at Trivandrum locations shows the more or less same percentage of occurrence of single-, double-, three-, four- and five-layered clouds. The important findings are: Radiosonde derived cloud ‐free cases and one to five cloud layers account for 30.63%, 42.51%, 19.76%, 5.85%, 1.08%, and 0.16% all cases, respectively, whereas CloudSat shows 47.17%, 24.74%, 6.41%, 1.81%, 0.13% of the total samples, respectively. In general, the thickness of cloud layers does not change much from summer to winter. However, the occurrences of multi-layered clouds are more frequent in the summer. Further, keeping the CloudSat limitations in view, an attempt is made to evaluate the CloudSat observations using radiosonde measurements and which has the great potential for studying the multi-layered cloud structures over the globe and important in climate point of view.

  • Micro Combined Heat and Power Systems – Evaluation of a Sample

    • Abstract: The growing need for a secure, cost-effective, less polluting and efficient form of energy has contributed to an increasing interest in the use of micro combined heat and power (MCHP) systems. In this paper, the environmental performance and economic feasibility of a 1 kWe internal combustion engine (ICE) MCHP system in a one-family house was assessed and compared with the baseline scenario were residential energy demands are met with grid electricity and natural gas fired condensing boilers. The result of the analysis shows that MCHP systems present opportunities for savings in energy costs. Based on a social discount rate (SDR) of 5 % and a calculated 3259 operating hours, a simple payback period of about 4.8 years was derived as the time needed to recover the extra investment cost of the ICE unit. The result of the sensitivity analysis reveals that, both the running hours and price of electricity have significant effects on the payback period of the project. Considering the end of useful life period of the systems, MCHP offer a good replacement for conventional gas boilers of 90 % efficiency. However, their high initial costs (when compared to high efficiency condensing boilers), could be seen as the major factor hampering market diffusion. Also, considering the optimal environmental benefits, MCHP system produced more on-site CO2 emissions in reference to the condensing boiler but generally, annual CO2 emission is reduced by about 38 % when compared to the overall separate generation of heat and power scenario.
