Sustainability Assessment of the Wind Energy Utilisation

Multicriteria sustainability assessment based on ASPID methodology is used for sustainability evaluation of wind energy utilisation in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The point of the used method is in synthesis of specific criteria which describe various aspects of the objects (in this case energy systems of various sources) on the base of initial attributes or indicators, and which are being evaluated by General index characterising all options under consideration. This basic method-MGI (Method General Index) is adopted by ASPID methodology {Analysis and Synthesis of Index at Information Deficiency) [5, 6].

[14] EcoGest solves the dynamic laws of vehicles for specific accelerations and decelerations curves of typical driving modes. EcoGest is capable of calculating along the trip the localization of the vehicle, vehicle velocity, position of the accelerator pedal, gearbox selection, and the engine rotation speed. In addition, using the throttle position and the engine speed, EcoGest is capable of estimating instantaneous fuel consumption as well as instantaneous and average NOx, CO, C02 and HC exhaust emissions.

[15] Experimental Measurements

Experimental measurements should occur after choosing representative lines of the network and representative vehicles of the fleet. These measurements must represent

[16] Classes of slope were created having in account the topography characteristics of the network studied.

[17] Acceleration factors from 0.5 to 1 represent 50% to 0% of acceleration softening.

[18] At the moment there are Canadian and European research projects which purpose is to reduce vehicles weight in order to improve energy efficiency.

[19] Rolling does not include acceleration and deceleration from and to stops, in that order.
