Summary

Power systems have two components of apparent power: active and reactive power. Both components are necessary for functioning of electrical systems. The active power is the average power absorbed by the resistive load. The reactive power is the measure of energy exchange between the source and reactive power of load. Energy storage devices do not dissipate or supply power, but exchange power with the rest of system.

Active power is the one that is converted to other forms of energy in the load yet reactive power is only responsible for magnetizing purposes.  Power factor is a ratio depicting how much of the power supplied is real. The reactive current contribute in the value of the overall magnitude of current in transmission lines causing unnecessarily high line currents and low power factor.
 
Since a low power factor means higher amount of apparent power need to be supplied by the utility company, thus the company must also use bigger generators, large transformers and thicker transmission/distribution lines. This requires a higher capital expenditure and operational cost which usually result in the cost being passed to the consumer.

In this research, we seek to identify the effects of a low power factor on Swaziland Electricity Company’s power supply system and recommend possible solutions to the problem. The results are useful in determining how to optimally deliver power to a load at a power factor that is reasonably close to unity, thus reducing the utility’s operational costs while increasing the quality of the service being supplied.

    The environment is an amazing gift of nature to the mankind. It consists of many small and big organisms, which reside together in this environment. They follow a proper food chain and live together. In past few decades, after the development of mankind and the different techniques, the humans have developed in every field. This development is a positive aspect but there came a time when these different aspects of development have harmed the environment very badly. There are many adverse effects of the human deeds on the environment and the humans are continuously exploiting the natural resources of the earth. This exploitation has led to the depletion of natural resources such as coal, iron, mineral oils etc. To understand the fact that environment and its components are precious, a thorough discussion is done here. This will provide a basic idea of the environment, the environmental science and the ways by which environment can be saved.

    In these tapes, Terence McKenna brings his considerable talents to bear on the problems of the global delemma, the melt-down of the values of western civilization and the future on the human species. McKenna calls for an "archaic revival" and a dissolution of the fictitious and synthetic boundaries erected by the historical male ego. He believes this dissolution to be enhanced by the ingestion of natural psychedelics. Whether you agree or disagree with McKenna's ideas, you will find them provocative, incisive, and above all, entertaining. Be prepared to marvel at the way a truly great and original mind works.

    “This may be one of the most important books you read this year. We are being poisoned, and this book is sounding a well-informed alarm.” —Eve Ensler, New York Times–bestselling author 
     
    Chemical poisons have infiltrated all facets of our lives—housing, agriculture, work places, sidewalks, subways, schools, parks, even the air we breathe. More than half a century since Rachel Carson issued Silent Spring—her call-to-arms against the poisoning of our drinking water, food, animals, air, and the natural environment—The Fight Against Monsanto’s Roundup takes a fresh look at the politics underlying the mass use of pesticides and the challenges people around the world are making against the purveyors of poison and the governments that enable them. 
     
    The scientists and activists contributing to The Fight Against Monsanto’s Roundup, edited by long-time Green activist Mitchel Cohen, explore not only the dangers of glyphosate—better known as “Roundup”—but the campaign resulting in glyphosate being declared as a probable cancer-causing agent. In an age where banned pesticides are simply replaced with newer and more deadly ones, and where corporations such as Monsanto, Bayer, Dow and DuPont scuttle attempts to regulate the products they manufacture, what is the effective, practical, and philosophical framework for banning glyphosate and other pesticides? 
     
    The Fight Against Monsanto’s Roundup: The Politics of Pesticides takes lessons from activists who have come before and offers a radical approach that is essential for defending life on this planet and creating for our kids, and for ourselves, a future worth living in. 
     
    “Thoroughly and effectively indict[s] Monsanto, Syngenta, and other Big Food corporations for poisoning our soil, our water, and our genomes.” —Clifford D. Conner, author of The Tragedy of American Science
