Characteristics of the available wind energy in Bahrain
The wind characteristics and the available wind energy in Bahrain has been studied. The mean long-term wind speed and its variation at a height of 10 m above ground level were found to be 4.90 and 0.823 ms-1 respectively. ...
Global B.Sc. programme in renewable energy
A newly proposed Bachelor degree in renewable energy has been reported herein. The programme is aimed to be international. It consists of 140 credit hours and is an interdisciplinary programme run by the College of Science ...
Studying the behaviour of the dislocation density and the loop length with the compressional deformation at room temperature in high purity polycrystalline aluminium
The pulse echo technique was used to measure the ultrasonic attenuation in polycrystalline aluminium crystal having 5N purity. From the measured ultrasonic attenuation and velocity of sound in the metal with the use of the ...
Assessment of the possibility of using three types of wind turbine in Bahrain
A technical and economic assessment has been made of the generation of electricity by assuming instillation wind generators. Data of two sites in Bahrain: System Control Distribution station (SCD) and Bahrain International ...
Feasibility of estimating the wind speed in a location by the knowledge of the distance and the azimuth angle from a reference point
Statistical forecasting methods, used to estimate the wind speed at a distance x and in direction ? from a reference point were established using data from 20 locations in a country having a large area (i.e. Saudi Arabia). ...
The available wind power in Bahrain
The available wind power in Bahrain has been estimated using four methods. The power density was found to be 60.0, 63.5, 54.5 and 167.0 W m-2, respectively. The power obtained from a wind generator module (1 m in diameter) ...
Fuel consumption by vehicles in the state of Bahrain
A new empirical equation has been developed which relates the vehicle's fuel consumption in Bahrain to the weight of the vehicle, distance travelled and time taken for the trip. This equation is easy to use. � 1995.
Estimation of the clear sky and the ground emissivity in Bahrain
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1990)
The clear sky emissivity ?0 and the ground emissivity ?g in Bahrain is studied. The study reveals that the annual value of ?0 is 0.88 � 0.039 relating to the maximum and the minimum values in August and February, respectively. ...
Calculation of the surface albedo of Bahrain from solar energy data
The average surface albedo was calculated for Bahrain by using three methods. One of these is derived from actual global radiation results and the others are derived from two theoretical models for estimating the global ...
Empirical correlation for total and diffuse radiation in Bahrain
The total and diffuse irradiation in Bahrain are estimated using meteorological data recorded from 1984 to 1987. Two established models were used in calculating the total radiation. Next, an empirical equation was used to ...
