The slope ([[phi].sub.q]) inaplot of ln [F.sub.q] versus - ln [delta]y at a given positive integer q is called intermittency index or intermittency slope which provide us with an opportunity to characterize the apparently irregular fluctuations of the particle density.
The sun does not always shine down upon us through clear blue skies, winds do not always blow at stable speeds, rainfall patterns are not always reliable enough to ensure a planned, constant flow of hydropower and today's energy storage solutions have yet to evolve to a level where they can plug in the gaps that may be caused by this intermittency.
Through installing wind/solar hybrid plants, the cumulative capacity factor can be increased up to 50pc, which will reduce the intermittency factor and at the same time make investment in high-voltage transmission facilities justifiable.
'Our model revealed that the intermittency of renewable technologies drives the effectiveness of carbon pricing mechanisms.
Intermittency - that's built-in because of all the solar penetration," First Gen Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Federico R.
The main issue concerning the transmission network is being overcome through work on the grid to resolve the problems of intermittency and volatility related to renewable energy sector.
Intermittency effects, in particular, have been associated with fractal-like properties of the multiparticle production process [32-34] (see [35,36] for a more complete account on the subject), and it was associated with gluon emission of high energy jets [37-39] that results from the QCD evolution equations [40].
The utility firm aims to be the first distribution utility firm to deploy a grid-scale BESS in the distribution system in the Philippines to demonstrate the potential of BESS to manage peak demand and energy, improve service reliability and power quality, and compensate for the intermittency of renewable generation.
Then there's that old chestnut about intermittency - the fact that the wind comes and goes.
The technology could enable a new generation of plants that provide clean power, without the development risks of nuclear, the geographic restrictions of hydroelectric, or the intermittency issues of solar and wind.
The potential source could avoid the intermittency of wind and solar energy, providing power around the clock, said the researchers at Columbia University in New York City.
Considering the advances of PCR on the detection of carriers in leptospirosis, this study aimed to analyze the occurrence of intermittency on leptospiral shedding in naturally and experimentally infected animals.
