System Restoration through Black Start Resources at Hydropower Stations

1. Background: A total or partial shutdown of the national electricity transmission system is usually an unlikely event. However, if it happens, we are obliged to ensure that there are contingency arrangements in place to restore electricity supplies in timely and orderly ways. Black start is a process of restoring an electric power station or a […]

विद्युतीय सुरक्षा – न प्राधिकरणलाई चासो न विभागलाई चिन्ता

प्रस्तुत गरिएका दृष्टान्तहरु नेपाल विद्युत प्राधिकरण द्वारा संचालित विद्युत प्रसारण र वितरण प्रणालीसंग सम्बन्धित छन्l निजी क्षेत्र द्वारा निर्मित र संचालित तथा वैकल्पिक उर्जा प्रवर्धन केन्द्र द्वारा प्रवर्धन गरिएका विद्युतीय संरचनाहरु पनि कानुनी प्रावधानसंग बेखबर नै देखिन्छनl
यदि कानुनको किताब लेखिन्छ भने त्यसलाई पालना गर्नु सरोकारवाला सम्पूर्ण पक्षहरुको दायित्व हो र नियमन गर्ने निकायले कानुनको पालना भए नभएको निर्क्यौल गरी कानुनको शत प्रतिशत पालना गराउने वातावरण सिर्जना गर्ने तर्फ़ हर हमेशा प्रयासरत रहनुपर्ने आजको टड्कारो आवश्यकता हो

Brain-Computer Interface (BCI)

A BCI is a computer-based system that acquires brain signals, analyzes them, and translates them into commands that are relayed to an output device to carry out the desired action. A BCI system consists of 4 sequential components: signal acquisition, feature extraction, feature translation, and device output. These systems use different brain signals, recording methods, and signal-processing […]

Distribution System Loss and Smart Meters

Nepal Electricity Authority has made significant improvement in reducing distribution loss 11.28% from 14.82% of previous year. Per percent of distribution loss reduction benefits NEA with approx. 74 crore rupees, and loss reduction of 3.54% has benefitted 2 Arba 62 Crore Rupees to NEA. Loss reduction has two fold benefits to NEA and the country.

New macro element modelling technique for URM infill wall with openings under seismic action

Frame structures with URM infill is one common construction type in Nepal and other regions of the world. Although, full infill wall can be considered by using equivalent diagonal strut, it is challenging for structural engineers to take into account the presence of openings in the infill wall during the seismic design of buildings. Few macro models have been developed to address this problem, but they are either too complicated to use or they create anomaly due to huge variation in the results. A new macro modelling technique is introduced here for URM infill wall with opening where the infill wall is discretized with the help of rigid elements. The discretized infill zone is represented by pair of diagonal link elements and the presence of opening is considered by removing the diagonal link in the zone of opening. The proposed model can be used for nonlinear static analysis of RC/steel framed building with masonry infills in earthquake prone regions like Nepal.

Climate Resilient Urban Design through Energy Efficient Planning and Design Revisiting Land Pooling Project in Kathmandu Valley

ABSTRACT Global climate change has rendered traditional urban design processes obsolete. A new paradigm is required in order to develop resilient urban areas able to adapt and thrive in changing global conditions, meet the requirements of carbon-reduction and other environmental measures, and sustain compact urban populations by providing necessary and desirable amenities for urban residents.

Contribution of Snow and Glacier on Hydropower Potential and its response to Climate Change, A Case study of Gandaki and Karnali Basin of Nepal

The perennial rivers that originate from high Himalayas are the major source of water during dry seasons when we need them the most. The flow in such rivers during dry seasons is supplied by melting of snow and glaciers-the natural frozen water reserves in the high altitudes. That’s why they are often referred as the […]

A Distance Map Regularized CNN for Cardiac Cine MR Image Segmentation

Abstract Cardiac image segmentation is a critical process for generating personalized models of the heart and for quantifying cardiac performance parameters. Several convolutional neural network (CNN) architectures have been proposed to segment the heart chambers from cardiac cine MR images. Here we propose a multi-task learning (MTL)-based regularization framework for cardiac MR image segmentation. The […]

The Predictive Power of Structural MRI in Autism Diagnosis

Abstract Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) using structural magnetic resonance imaging (sMRI) of the brain has been a topic of significant research interest. Previous studies using small datasets with well-matched Typically Developing Controls (TDC) report high classification accuracies (80-96%) but studies using the large heterogeneous ABIDE dataset report accuracies less than 60%. In this […]
