About This Special Issue
Energy Conversion and Management is a peer-reviewed special issue of International Journal of Energy and Power Engineering that specifically disseminates the latest developments and original researches on energy conversion technologies and management. The aims mainly are to collate interdisciplinary knowledge and to make significant contributions to all aspects of energy conversion field. The subject areas considered include, but are not limited to:

1. All sources, forms and uses of energy generation and conversion systems: new, renewable (e.g. wind, solar, geothermal, hydro energy, etc.), mechanical, thermal, nuclear, chemical, electrochemical, magnetic, electromagnetic, electrical energy, and so on.
2. Energy efficiency and management
3. Sustainable energy
4. Micro energy conversion and power systems
5. Thermoelectricity, thermionic, photoelectric, thermal-photovoltaic, fossil fuels and nuclear resources
6. Single and combined cycles
7. Hydrogen production and storage
8. Advanced fuel cells and batteries
9. Water management and desalination
10. Magneto-hydrodynamic conversion processes

    Abstract: The result of a preliminary economic evaluation of distributed generation of electricity with a molten carbonate fuel cell (MCFC) in Paraguay is presented in this work. For this purpose, a mathematical model that represents the main technical and economic characteristics involved in the operation of MCFCs was applied. The model is applied in a hori... Show More
  • Practical Implementation of an Improved Standby Boost Uninterruptible Power Supply


    Issue: Volume 3, Issue 6-3, December 2014
    Pages: 1-7
    Received: 27 May 2014
    Accepted: 16 June 2014

    DOI: 10.11648/j.ijepe.s.2014030603.11
    Abstract: This paper proposes a single phase pulse-width modulated (PMW) voltage source uninterruptible power supply known as an improved standby boost uninterruptible power supply (ISBUPS) which centers on keeping the output voltage of the inverter system of the UPS at constant voltage of 220V AC and ripple free when utility power supply fails.
