This is the first survey textbook published in South Africa since the publication of the well-known “Survey Handbook” by Durban Corporation many years ago. This fact alone makes it a very valuable addition to the available literature… (more)

This paper discusses the development of the first GISc diploma at a South African University of Technology. The changes in Surveying education and development of GIS is explored, since it became clear that the interest in the cartography programme became increasingly limited and the obvious solution was to replace it with GISc… (more)

Improving energy efficiency of electric motor-driven systems (EMDS) will help slow down electricity demand growth and reduce the investment needed for the expansion of the electricity sector. Innovations include harmonisation of electric motor efficiency standards by the IEC and the replacement of die-cast aluminium rotors with die-cast copper rotors. EMDS have ancillary components whose collective poor efficiency performance impedes system efficiency. Therefore, there is a need for a system approach to efficiency improvement… (more)

A home in Cape Town was equipped with 3,8 kWp photo-voltaic panels and associated inverter and batteries. During the first year of operation, it was found that the PV panels delivered 6431 kWh at an average capacity factor of 19,3%. The house demand of 3129 kWh was met partly by the PV panels, partly by the batteries (666 kWh) and partly by the grid (978 kWh)… (more)

This study sought to determine the amount of power used by a typical household for the purposes of home entertainment. As more and more people choose to purchase more elaborate home entertainment equipment, the per-household power draw of such devices will only continue to increase… (more)

This paper gives an overview of domestic usage of energy and describes how sound energy management practices can be employed to improve sustainability as well as the “triple bottom line” of domestic users… (more)
