Determining the priority of solving problems in the LES, determine the balance reliability, as the reliability of LES, when its calculated model is determined by the balance of consumption and generation of electricity, taking into account external revenue. From what, in what way and by what means the balance reliability is provided, it depends on how other tasks are successfully solved The balance of active and reactive power in the LES depends on its technical and economic indicators. The process of balancing power in the LES is significantly influenced by the instability of generation of RES, in particular PV. The instability of the PV generation is compensated by the power input to the LES from the grid. Because of the conditions for balancing the regime of LES, they also affect the regimes of the EES. The work on the optimization of the joint work of the LES and the UES is devoted to a number of works. In today's conditions, the provision of balance is solely on the centralized system of electricity supply.

Countries, in which use nuclear power plants to generate electricity, have been questioning their future nuclear power generation and they have been looking for alternatives to meet their growing energy demand. In Turkey, there had not been installed any nuclear power plant in the golden age of nuclear power. And, the last attempt in 2000 had been also abandoned by the government, arguing that nuclear option was not cost-effective. In this study, the economics of nuclear power has been reviewed based on the existing studies. And, the main objective of the study is to clarify the confusion for public and to eliminate the disinformation, which is based on cost effectiveness and absence of external costs. The primary conclusion, throughout evaluation of the key determinants of nuclear economics, indicates to an unfeasible and an unattractive situation for private investors. High capital costs, long and uncertain construction periods discourage investors to invest in such a venture, without public subsidies.

The world's population increases so rapidly that will place an enormous strain on energy resources. Nuclear power today represents one of the most important contributors to the word electricity supply. Disposal of nuclear waste is critical to the continuous development and future use of nuclear energy. The coupling of an external neutron source to a sub-critical reactor to compose an accelerator driven system (ADS) is a very interesting option to transmutation nuclear waste and improve the safety of nuclear critical reactor in terms of criticality control. The book provides comprehensive information about The nuclear power, nuclear waste and its transmutation strategies, theoretical foundations of the efficiency of accelerator-driven sub-critical reactors, nuclear data libraries, Monte Carlo code MCNPX and WIMS code, design and description of the basic configurations of the MYRRHA FASTEF subcritical BoL core and the MYRRHA FASTEF subcritical equilibrium core. In addition to calculating the neutronic parameters of the proposed model. The book can be used as a textbook for students of nuclear physics and engineering.

An electric power system is the network of electrical components that are used to generate, transmit and distribute electric power for industrial and domestic uses. In another way it can be stated that electric power system is the network that supplies electric power from the power station to residential and industrial consumers. This power system is known as the grid. Power system can be divided into three stages: 1. Generation of electricity 2. Transmission system and 3. The distribution system A generating station generally uses the operation of a prime mover which is coupled to an alternator and at least an external exciter for the production of electric power. a. The prime mover may be a water turbine, wind mill or steam turbine. b. It converts energy from other forms into mechanical energy. c. The prime mover will rotate the armature winding situated within the magnetic field. d. Then, electrical energy will be generated by the alternator. e. The electrical energy produced by the electric power station is transmitted and distributed to the consumers with the help of conductors.

This small book on the properties of continuously distributed matter covers a huge field. It sets out the governing principles of continuum physics and illustrates them by carefully chosen examples. These examples comprise structural mechanics and elasticity, fluid media, electricity and optics, thermoelectricity, fluctuation phenomena and more, from Archimedes' principle via Brownian motion to white dwarfs. Metamaterials, pattern formation by reaction-diffusion and surface plasmon polaritons are dealt with as well as classical topics such as Stokes' formula, beam bending and buckling, crystal optics and electro- and magnetooptic effects, dielectric waveguides, Ohm's law, surface acoustic waves, to mention just some.The set of balance equations for content, flow and production of particles, mass, charge, momentum, energy and entropy is augmented by material, or constitutive equations. They describe entire classes of materials, such as viscid fluids and gases, elastic media, dielectrics or electrical conductors. We discuss the response of matter to rapidly oscillating external parameters, in particular the electric field strength of light, in the framework of statistical thermodynamics.&lt, An appendix on fields and a glossary round off this bird's-eye view on continuum physics.Students of physics, engineering and related fields will benefit from the clear presentation of worked examples and the variety of solution methods, including numerical techniques. Lecturers or advanced students may profit from the unified view on a substantial part of physics. It may help them to embed their research field conceptually within a wider context.
