Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Interest in optimizing energy production and use is growing every year. Human development is constantly accompanied by technological progress. With dynamically changing energy prices, improving existing technological solutions can bring measurable energy savings. Engineering solutions, mainly of a technical nature, are constantly being sought.

In times of intensive industrial development, great emphasis is placed on sustainable development and proper synergy between man and nature.

Low-emission economy is a direction whose growth is achieved by integrating all aspects of economic development around energy-saving technologies. A properly functioning economy should focus on issues related to the efficient use of mechanisms capable of adapting existing technological solutions to the changing market situation. Appropriate impulses for energy-saving development strengthen the energy security of the economy.

The key challenge we face today is the logical use of already-known technologies to best match the flows of energy consumed in processes we already know.

In order to provide an economical energy stream in the expected period, it is necessary to modify production profiles, technological operations, materials, and operating characteristics, which will be possible by providing knowledge and tips to the designer or investor by seeking optimal technological solutions. This approach will point the way to favorable compromises in the future.

Therefore, this extremely important Special Issue strives to develop solutions for sustainable production that can save energy and reduce the emission of harmful compounds into the atmosphere in an era when there is great concern for clean technologies.

This Special Issue will deal with novel solutions to reach this objective. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • New approaches to energy consumption;
  • Modernization solutions;
  • Low-emission energy-saving production;
  • Reduction in emissions;
  • Directions for reducing air pollution.

Title: Theoretical analysis of the meteorological data as a road of optimizing the wind energy
Authors: Olga Orynycz; Paweł Ruchała; Karol Tucki; Andrzej Wasiak; Máté Zöldy

Abstract: The development of wind energy has been observed for many years. Both construction firms and the scientific world are analyzing new design solutions, atmospheric conditions and the technical performance achieved. The paper presents modelling of relationships between wind velocity distributions observed in Poland and technical requirements for wind power stations design. The wind velocities distributions for various locations in Poland are determined, and expressed in Weibull distribution parameters. Theoretical computations concerning the dependence of wind power station as function of wind speed and aire physical properties are presented. Conclusions important for design of power stations fitted to atmospheric conditions in Poland are given. LabVIEW was used for computer modeling.
