Like many large projects, MURPs, because of their complexity and scale, often face the difficulties of being over-budget or late. This research aims to develop and validate a new framework to evaluate mega urban regeneration projects. Four objectives were formulated to address those problems. Firstly, to explore the nexus between MURP, urban transformation, and globalization. Secondly, to identify the characteristics of sustainable mega urban regeneration projects. Thirdly, to investigate existing sustainable urban regeneration frameworks. Fourthly, develop a framework to evaluate Mega Urban Regeneration Projects and, finally, validate the framework.</p> Meshari Alrashidi, Erry Y. T.

Kuwait Oil Company is dealing with the exploration and manufacturing of crude oil &amp; natural gas. EPC projects perform an essential role in the technology of new physical amenities to keep or decorate production. Project administration has developed incredibly over time due to several strategies to deal with building activities. Schedule and Budget are the two most important concerns required to be optimised all through execution. Therefore, a very excellent &amp; efficient challenge management system is wished and has to be framed to deal with the fundamental capital construction projects. In effect, help the organisation makes have an impact on the country's economy.</p> Abdullah Aliasser, Erry Y. T.

The use of an ontology-based virtual factory, continuously synchronised with the real plant, is proposed to guarantee digital continuity and enable in-situ simulation during the operating phase. This digital counterpart of the system can be used for integrated shop-floor simulations to assess production and maintenance planning decisions' future impact. An industrial application is provided in the context of roll shops, i.e., systems devoted to the grinding of cylinders for rolling mills.</p> Ahmad Alrashidi, Erry Y. T.

It is among the essential activities that ensure the development of the human being. So, it is capital to ensure good work and the efficiency of agricultural production. Thus, the research is focused on the domain of agriculture automation to increase the agriculture production yield with less water consumption and less risk in Africa, particularly in Senegal, where agriculture delays reaching food self-sufficiency because of rudimentary materials. The farmers are using a hilar, plough, and hoe for doing their daily tasks. The watering can still be used to water a large area of crops and is done randomly. The chemical pesticide is done manually using a manual sprayer, which causes enormous risks of diseases to the farmers and destroys the field and even the crops. This thesis describes an approach to automated farming by the use of a Sprayer Robot based on Arduino. Besides the Sprayer Robot, the paper also presents an automated irrigation system based on the Senegalese climatic parameters and soil textures through CROPWAT and CLIMWAT. The automatic irrigation system is done with a programmable logic controller, the master controller of the overall design, including the Sprayer Robot. Moreover, a SCADA graphical interface is also implemented for the monitoring of the whole system. The project, tested in simulation with the CROPWAT and CLIMWAT data, could give no reduction yield if applied and also reduced risk of diseases due to chemicals.</p> Mohammad Mahbubur Rashid, Alioune Sall, Tahsin F Hasan Copyright (c) 2021 Asian Journal of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Wed, 31 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0800 Ferroelectric behavior and NCFETs - TCAD Simulation <p>With the miniaturization of transistors, the current leakage also increases due to the increasing tunnelling effect. Plus, Boltzmann’s tyranny limits the subthreshold swing to be best and ideal at <br>60 mV/decade. Due to these, the power consumption in transistors keeps soaring up. Therefore, in this paper, the Negative Capacitance Effect Field Transistor (NCFET) is discussed as it possesses excellent potentials in reducing the power consumption in transistors. The negative capacitance induced in NCFET enables the internal voltage amplification and reduces the required voltage for the transistor to operate, and therefore, the power consumption is reduced. The literature reviews are done to gain knowledge on the structure and behavior of the NCFET. Next, the process and device simulation of NMOS are studied using Silvaco TCAD to get the idea of developing a circuit simulator model of NCFET. After that, we developed the circuit model of NCFET and MOSFET. Next, the ferroelectric parameters are varied to study how it will affect the ferroelectric material's polarization and capacitance. The ferroelectric thickness and source-drain doping concentration of the proposed NCFET model is also varied to study the NCFET behaviors in peak current, subthreshold slope, saturation current and saturation slope. Lastly, the performances of NCFET and MOSFET are compared. It is found that the NCFET has better performance as compared to the MOSFET as the NCFET can achieve a steeper subthreshold slope.</p> Naimah Binti Darmis, AHM Zahirul Alam, Muhaimin Bin Mohd Hashim Copyright (c) 2021 Wed, 31 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0800 Optimization of Combined Thermal Power Plant and Performance Analysis using Matlab/Simulink using Real Data: Kuwait as a Case Study <p>To increase the overall plant efficiency, the Combined cycle power plant (CCPP), which is a combination of the Gas turbine (Brayton cycle) and steam turbine (Rankine cycle), is a highly efficient system for electricity generation.&nbsp; In this paper, optimization and performance simulation analysis of Subiyah Combined Thermal Power Plant using real operating data is performed. The model is developed using MATLAB software. The main factors in the top and bottom cycles of the combined cycle are investigated and discussed. The simulation results demonstrate the exhaust of the Gas turbine reached up to 600°C. The net-power output based on the performance model using MATLAB (Simulink) is greater than the station's current real output by 20.5%. The overall thermal efficiency of the power plant is also raised from 50.5% to 55.2%.</p> Meshari F A F Alshammari, Siti Fauziah Toha, Hazleen Anuar, Yose Fachmi Buys Copyright (c) 2021 Asian Journal of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Tue, 20 Apr 2021 00:00:00 +0800
