Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pumping systems driven by electric motors play a significant role in modern water production, distribution, and sewerage systems by providing liquid transfer and delivery for industrial, household and commercial applications. The growth of population in big towns and cities as well as in rural areas consequently leads to the necessity of optimized and more sophisticated water supply and distribution systems.

This Special Issue focuses on the theory and practice of all types of regular and solar-powered pumping systems.

We invite papers on novel methods, innovative technology approaches, analytical models, reviews, and case studies. The area includes but is not limited to the following topics:


- Technical, economic, and environmental assessment of grid and solar-powered applications of pumping systems (including domestic, community, and industrial);

- Novel methods and innovative approaches of power conversion and optimization for both conventional and solar powered pumping systems (theory with modeling and/or practice with implementations and case studies);

- Solar energy management models for pumping systems, forecasting, and optimization techniques;

-  Optimization techniques for control strategies including speed, throttling, and bypass methods;

- Batteries and photovoltaic arrays for solar power usage in pumping applications.

Thank you for your consideration. We hope you consider contributing to this very exciting Special Issue.

Oil production is a complex technological process that requires significant electricity consumption. The main electricity consumers in oil and gas production workshops are artificial lift facilities. Currently, among the objects of mechanized mining, installations of electric submersible pumps are widespread. When planning technological modes, it is necessary to be able to assess the change in the power consumption parameters when changing the technological process parameters. The paper proposes a typical replacement scheme for the electrical complex element. The power consumption calculation of electric submersible pump installations has been carried out. The error in the power consumption modeling results of electric submersible pump installations in comparison with the results of instrumental measurements is no more than 10%. The estimation of additional losses of electric energy caused by the influence of harmonics is carried out. The proposed technique makes it possible to estimate the power consumption of an electric submersible pump installation when changing the parameters of the technological process and equipment. The results of the work can be used for planning material support and optimization of warehouse stocks within the framework of integrated logistics support for the technological process of industrial enterprises.

This paper presents a novel algorithm to pick PV-based pumping system operating points that simultaneously achieve maximum delivered power and optimized stability. We present an in-depth analysis of operating point dynamics and shape the PV output current and voltage parameter plans. Accordingly, we draw the power bifurcation diagram with all possible operating points. Our proposed algorithm picks the power operating point midway between two consecutive stable points and far enough from the stability boundary to assure system safety. We validated our methodology successfully by numerical simulation based on speculative evidence using MATCON/MATLAB/SimPowerSystems blocks. In addition, we compared the proposed algorithm with P&O MPPT algorithm, and the results verified the reliability of our proposed algorithm to deliver maximum stable power. Full article

Title: Improving the Reliability of Power Supply to Remote Consumers through the mini-CHP with ORC Cycle
Authors: Zimin R Yu; Babanova I S
Affiliation: Saint Petersburg Mining University, Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation
Abstract: The evaluation of the introduction of mini-CHP with the organic thermodynamic Rankine cycle (ORC) to improve the reliability of power supply to remote consumers. The problems of isolated power supply systems are considered. The analysis of the existing situation has been carried out and the main possibilities of using renewable energy sources (RES) have been identified, an assessment of connection to the unified energy system has been made. The choice of an effective power supply scheme is justified, taking into account a mini-CHP with an ORC cycle, as well as a set of measures for the implementation of the development of autonomous power supply systems.
