Photochemical Pollution Modelling In Complex Terrain
Ozone is considered one of the most significant pollutants with respect to the potential impacts to human health and natural ecosystem, both in terms of critical episodes and as long-term exposures. Consequently, in order to assess the comprehensive effects of photochemical pollution, not only ozone peak concentrations need to be examined, but also ozone exposures […]

Innovative Methods for the Survey
​In recent years, the availability of laser scanner instruments capable of operating over long distances (up to a distance of more than one kilometer with the most recent equipment) and the use of survey from drone has allowed us to extend this important methodology, once reserved for applications in the architectural field, the survey of […]

Evaluation of the energy storage systems impact on the Italian ancillary market
The increasing of Renewable Energy Source (RES) generation requires power systems to become more flexible, in order to manage injections variability and uncertainty at various timeframes. Energy storage systems, such as electrochemical technologies, represent a broadly deployable asset, which could support effectively RES deployment. The present paper describes a Mixed Integer Linear-constrained Programming (MILP) model […]

The Resiliency Continuum
Storm damage can wreak havoc on the electrical distribution system and instantaneously create a major impact on those who continuously depend on unfettered access to electrical energy. “Keeping the lights on” is a bedrock principle of utility operations, but is increasingly being challenged by more frequent and turbulent natural disasters. The quest for greater utility […]

On the way to compare the polarity reversal withstand capability of HVDC mass-impregnated and extruded cable systems
​The reversal of voltage polarity is essential in HVDC cablesystems with Current Source Converters (CSC), since it enables to revert the direction of the power flow. Mass Impregnated Non-Draining (MIND) cables are known tobe able to withstand the voltage polarity reversal without particular problems. TERNA, the Italian Transmission System Operator (TSO), has introduced since many […]

Mistral Software for online Monitoring System
​The collection, storage and analysis of information concerning a dam are a critical part of surveillance activity toward managing the safety of the structure. An important part on handling of this information is the interpretation of data coming from the monitoring. In addition, the use of automatic instrumentation has resulted in large amounts of data […]

Optical PD detection in high voltage cable accessories
Optical partial discharge detection is a new method to perform diagnosis of the insulation system detecting optical signals which are coming up at the same time.This method does not work with the electrical signals which are caused in case of partial discharges though. On the basis of this different physical process, external electrical noise can […]

Long-time behaviour of exposed geomembranes used for the upstream face rehabilitation of concrete and masonry dams
​The use of exposed geomembranes for the rehabilitation of concrete and masonry dams was introduced in Italy in 1976, when the entire upstream face of a 11 m high masonry dam was lined with a 2 mm thick PVC (polyvinyl chloride) geomembrane as waterproofing element (Lago Miller). In the following applications (among which Lago Nero, […]
