Application of Quasi Z-source Multilevel Inverter for Stand-alone PV system

Paper ID- AMA-31-12-2022-11927

This paper elaborates on the application of PV based quasi-Z-source Multilevel inverter(qZMLI) for the standalone system supplying AC loads. qZMLI is a preeminent topology that boost/buck the input voltage using shoot-through state and gained popularity due to its high reliability, low cost and compactness. This paper focuses on the design of the entire PV system interfaced with qZMLI. Determination of power consumption of loads, sizing of panels, sizing of inverter, sizing of battery and sizing of charge controller are elucidated alongwith calculations. The successful testing is carried out and the results are presented.

Impact of weather factor on shoot borer of sugarcane incidence in new cauvery delta region of Tamilnadu and its management.

Paper ID- AMA-30-12-2022-11926

Surveys and surveillance were conducted in sugarcane fields both in plant and ratoon crops distributed in Orthanadu and Vallam block in New Cauvery delta area of Thanjavur dictrict during three consecutive years 2019- 22 with an objective to assess the incidence of Early shoot borer in New Cauvery delta area of Thanjavur dictrict. Fortnightly fixed plot observation was taken. The Maximium and minimum temperature, RH and quantity of rain and rainy days also recorded daily and consolidated on monthly basis and weather parameters were correlated with the incidence of Early shoot borer. The results revealed that the maximum incidence of early shoot borer 36.5 percent. The result shows that the average temperature is positively correlated (r = 0.6690) with incidence of shoot borer and negatively correlated with rainfall (r = -0.7134) and humidity (r = -0.0903). In the field trial combination of Single bud treated with Trichoderma asperellum (TNAU)@ 4 g l-1 + soil application @ 2.5 kg ha-1 along with S4 (Intercropping with sunhemp + installation of sex pheromone traps @ 50 ha-1 (mass trapping) + need based spraying of Cartaphydrachloride @ 1kg ha-1) effectively increases the germination percentage of 85.16 % and decrease the shoot borer incidence by 45 percent which is significantly different from other treatment.

The field experiment was conducted during kharif, 2016 and kharif, 2017 to examine the effect of organic and inorganic products of silicon and bio fertilizers in inducing resistance against white backed plant hopper (WBPH) on rice. It was observed that silicon taken by rice plants in various treatments declined the population of WBPH as compared to control treatment. The treatment RHA+PF+KSB (T8) was the most effective treatment in reducing infestation followed by CaSiO3+PF+KSB (T5) and CaSiO3+KSB (T4), respectively. Silicon content was observed to be more in T5 followed by T8 and T4 treatments. The grain yield was highest in T5 (4475.83 kg/ha) followed by T8 (4173.33 kg/ha) and T4 (4103.17 kg/ha). The treatment T5 contained highest percentage of Si i.e., 7.71 % and 6.89 % at vegetative stage and reproductive stage, respectively. WBPH incidence at both the stages was significantly and negatively correlated to Si content (r= -0.714 and -0.770, respectively).

Export and Import performance of Walnut in India: An empirical analysis through Revealed Comparative and Trade advantage along with Revealed competitiveness

Paper ID- AMA-25-12-2022-11923

Walnut is the most important temperate nut of India with Jammu and Kashmir being the highest contributor (90%) to the total walnut production in the country. This study focuses on analysing the export performance of Indian walnut from 2005 to 2020. The secondary data for this research was collected from Agriculture and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) and United Nations Statistics. Revealed Comparative advantage (RCA), Revealed Import advantage (RMA), Revealed Competitiveness (RC) and Revealed Trade advantage (RTA) was used to assess the Export and Import stand of India globally. The import penetration ratio (IPR) was used to assess the protection levels of domestic markets. The findings of this research demonstrate that the RCA of walnut has been below 1 since 2011, depicting the country’s disadvantage in world export with an RCA of 0.136 in 2020, whereas the RMA has been increasing since 2014 which was 0.02 and then 0.81 in 2020. In addition to that, RTA has been continuously declining in 2011which was 0.65 and then being its lowest at -0.68 in 2020. Similarly, RC has also been declining since 2005 (11.85) and has remained below zero since 2016 with -1.79 in 2020. Thus, the IPR has been positive since 2015 which shows that Indian markets have been lowering their tariff and protections. Therefore, the novelty of this research is that Indian walnut export has been losing its advantage in global trades as our area and production of walnut didn’t show much growth over the last 15 years but our demand has been increasing continuously, so importing turned out to be highly advantageous as it fulfilled our domestic demands.

The Relationship of Food Intake to Nutritional Status in Children with Disabilities

Paper ID- AMA-24-12-2022-11922

Children who have disabilities or special needs are more likely to have physical impairments, which may include deficiencies in motor function, body form, or body size. Physical impairments are prevalent. Children who need particular care are included in the category of high-risk individuals. The health problems are also not considerably different from those that are experienced by children and adolescents in the general population. One of these concerns is a nutritional intake that is either insufficient or excessive. The objective of this study is to investigate the relationship between having a disability and the nutritional condition of children who have disabilities. The data for this research were collected via the use of a cross-sectional design and a thorough sampling method from forty children with disabilities who voluntarily gave their agreement to take part in the study. The retrieval of information via the use of a food intake questionnaire. It was shown that 52.50 percent of children with disabilities had a nutritional status of 21 or above, which is regarded to be normal. The majority of those that participated in this study were female. The consumption of carbs was the most abundant (441.7 g), while the intake of vitamins was the least abundant (0.27 g). The vast majority of children with disabilities exhibit normal levels of nutritional health. Protein and vitamin intake in the diet are directly connected to a person's nutritional health.
