    Abstract: Pour point of crude oil has been a huge concern in flow assurance at some stage in crude oil production and transportation. Pour point depressants are used as chemical additives when transporting crude oils at temperatures below their pour point to prevent the fluid not to flow. Various chemical additives which are synthetic products are quite expe... Show More

    Abstract: Today the world is full of time-dependent phenomena in all fields: physics, chemistry, mechanics and many others. Time acts on the performance of any system whatever its nature is. Moreover, proton exchange membrane fuel cells are promising alternatives to conventional power sources due to their high energy density and zero gas emission. However, t... Show More

    Abstract: In fossil fuels depletion and climate change context, converting renewable energies into electricity is an asset for the electrification in West Africa rural areas. However, the massive production of electricity from renewable energies still comes up against a high cost per kWh of electricity produced. The optimization method choice is essential in... Show More

    Abstract: Power system usually have standard static ratings (SLR) that determines load constraints. It refers to the maximum allowable conductor ampacity pre-determined by worst-case conditions (high ambient temperature, maximum solar radiation, and low wind speed) of their overhead transmission lines, that rises the line’s temperature without infringing gro...
