A Practical Probabilistic Design Procedure for LV Residential Distribution Systems

Ronald Herman & Charles Trevor Gaunt
Two basic types of low voltage (LV) distribution exist in practice. The systems based on the European approach have long LV feeders whose sizing requires more careful design consideration than systems based on North American practice with shorter LV feeders. The most important criterion in conductor sizing is the correct estimation of the design loads. This paper describes the development and application of a probabilistic design method based on the Beta probability density function (pdf)....

Teacher professional learning communities: A collaborative OER adoption approach in Karnataka, India

Gurumurthy Kasinathan
This chapter analyses collaborative Open Educational Resources (OER) adoption amongst Indian school teachers by examining the enabling and constraining techno-social, techno-pedagogical and sociocultural factors in an education context characterised by (1) low information and communication technologies (ICT) use in schools; (2) a “textbook culture” in which teachers often act as simply “content transmitters” of officially prescribed texts; and (3) diverse linguistic challenges, in which predominately English language OER may not always be relevant. The study...

An early stage impact study of localised OER in Afghanistan

Lauryn Oates, Letha Kay Goger, Jamshid Hashimi &
This study evaluates a group of Afghan teachers’ use of Open Educational Resources (OER) from the Darakht-e Danesh Library (DDL) – a digital library comprised of educational materials in English, Dari and Pashto – investigating whether these resources enabled improvements in teaching practice and led to improved subject knowledge. Conducted with secondary-school teachers in Parwan, Afghanistan, who accessed the DDL over a four-week period in 2016, the study asked the following research questions: To what...

Spotlight on OER policy in the Global South: Case studies from the Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project

To understand how policies enable or constrain educators’ adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER) in South America, Sub-Saharan Africa and South and Southeast Asia, the Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project undertook a meta-synthesis of seven ROER4D studies conducted in four countries – Colombia, South Africa, Afghanistan and Mongolia – to illustrate the varied influence that policy has on OER adoption in these diverse national contexts.
