Design of Energy Generating Gymnasium Pull-down Machine

Musharraf Saeed etc. at University of Sargodha have proposed a theoretical model of Energy Generating Gymnasium Pull-down Machine. The core idea behind this energy harvesting system is that, the human being is also a source of renewable energy and it is possible to harness electrical energy from people by the use of Energy Generating Gymnasium Machines. Human energy is wasted when excessive calories of body are burnt during exercise in gymnasiums to achieve the desired fitness. Energy Generating Gymnasium Machines will provide an opportunity to return expended energy in the form of electrical energy from gymnasium equipment and cardiovascular machines. The proposed system will be very beneficial for such countries that are facing energy crises as well as the third world countries. (

Detection of The Hook Style Energy Theft in the Smart Grid Era

Dr. A.G. Lazaropoulos (National Technical University of Athens, Greece) has investigated the possibility of detecting the hook style energy theft in the overhead low-voltage (OV LV) power grids.  (Trends in Renewable Energy, vol. 5, pp. 12-46. doi: 10.17737/tre.2019.5.1.0081)

Different OV LV BPL topologies, intensities of measurement differences and hook characteristics have been considered. It is found that the detection of the hook style energy theft becomes easier when the hook remains short (i.e., shorter than 10 m). There are three issues that need further analysis: (i) the existence / definition of the threshold of the maximum value  above which HS-DET method starts to give faulty decisions concerning the energy theft; (ii) the possibility of the installation of very long hooks so that HS-DET method can be jammed; and (iii) the use of “smart” hooks that are matched to the characteristic impedance of lines in order to cover the energy theft. ��� 8

A recent article in Trends in Renewable Energy was withdrawn

“Enhancement of the Rooftop Photovoltaic Array Characteristic Interconnected by the Grid under Partial Shading Condition by using Cascaded DC/DC Converter [WITHDRAWN]” was originally received by the journal office on March 5, 2018 and published after reviewing on April 12, 2018.
On April 16, 2018, this article was found to be a  duplicated submission of authors’ publication in other jounral [Ahmed M. Mahmoud, Salah M. Saafan, Ahmed M. Attalah. (2018) Enhancement of the rooftop Photovoltaic array characteristic interconnected by the grid under partial shading condition by using cascaded DC/DC converter. International Journal of Power Systems, 3, 42-52].
So this article in Trends in Renewable Energy was withdrawn immediately by the Editor-in-Chief. The announcement is available at http://dx.doi.org/10.17737/tre.2018.4.1.0063.
