From Editor's Desk Dear Researcher, Greetings! Research article in this issue discusses about Categorization of Peristaltic transport of a micropolar fluid in an inclined channel with permeable walls, comprehensive study of potential zone and low head hydro system. Let us review research around the world this month; Wood is key ingredient in cheap rechargeable battery. A battery made from wood doesn't exactly scream high-tech innovation – more like something cooked up round the campfire. But a device that exploits wood fibre could be the key to cheap, renewable power. Hongli Zhu and colleagues at the University of Maryland in College Park turned to a natural material they knew could more easily carry large ions: soft, porous wood fibre. These fibres include hollow elongated cells called tracheids, which have walls made of a tough material called lignin and which transport water and mineral salts around the organism. Bloodhound robot navigates by its sense of smell. A ROBOT that quickly homes in on odour sources could be used to sniff out the source of a fire, a chemical leak or even where a bomb has been planted. Tien-Fu Lu at the University of Adelaide in Australia has an answer: mimic the way insects do it. He has written a software routine that allows a robot to seek a hydrogen sulphide source – which stinks like rotten eggs – in a set of offices. Lu is now honing the technique, adding ultrasound sensors so the robot can sense walls and travel to the source even faster, without wasting time zig-zagging along corridors. Slime mould could make memristors for biocomputers. A garish yellow slime that grows on rotten leaves and logs could one day form the brains behind living computers. The feeding fronds of the slime mould Physarum polycephalum turn out to have memory resistance – or memristance. A memristor's electrical resistance is not constant but can be set by applying different voltages so that when the current stops, it "remembers" its resistance until current flows again. Ella Gale and colleagues at the University of the West of England in Bristol have found memristor behaviour in P. polycephalum's food-seeking tendrils. The team says that mould might one day be used to build exotic computers. Slime mould can be used to perform all the logic functions that conventional computer hardware components can do. It has been an absolute pleasure to present you articles that you wish to read. We look forward to many more new technologies related research articles from you and your friends. We are anxiously awaiting the rich and thorough research papers that have been prepared by our authors for the next issue.

Abstract - The peristaltic transport of a micro polar fluid in an inclined channel of half width ‘a’ with permeable walls is discussed . The effect of various parameters on the pumping characteristics is discussed through graphs Keywords: Peristalsis, Micropolar Fluid , Permeable Walls I. INTRODUCTION Many researchers studied the peristaltic transport of fluids by considering Newtonian and non-Newtonian models. Classical continuum theory cannot explain the mechanical behavior of rheologically complex fluids, such as liquid crystals, colloidal fluids and blood. Due to this fact a new approach was necessitated. There are several approaches to the formulation of micro continuum theories of fluids such as simple deformable directed fluids, dipolar fluids, polar fluids, simple micro-fluids, micropolar fluids etc. All these consider the existence of couple stress and body couples. Eringen [1,2] reported the theory of micropolar fluids in which the fluid micro elements undergo rotations without stretching. Micropolar fluids are superior to the Navier-stokes fluids and they can sustain stresses and body couples. Here the micro particles in the volume rotate with an angular velocity about the centre of gravity of the volume in an average sense and are described by
micropolar fluid in an inclined channel with permeable walls. The effect of various parameter on the pumping characteristics is discussed through graphs. Kh. S. Mekheimer  discussed the micropolar fluid model for blood flow through a tapered artery with a stenosis. Anuar Ishak at al  studied on MHD boundary-layer flow of a micropolar fluid past a wedge with constant wall heat flux. Krishna Kumari et al.  worked on Peristaltic Pumping of a Jeffrey Fluid under the Effect of Magnetic Field in an Inclined Channel. Y.V.K.Ravi Kumar et al  made a study on Peristaltic transport of a power-law fluid in an asymmetric channel bounded by permeable walls. P. Muthu  discussed on the influence of wall properties in the peristaltic motion of micropolar fluid II. MATHEMATICAL FORMULATION Consider the peristaltic pumping of a micropolar fluid in an inclined channel of half-width ' a ' . A longitudinal train of progressive sinusoidal waves takes place on the upper and lower walls of the channel. For simplicity we restrict our discussion to the half-width of the channel as shown in figure (1). The wall deformation is given by
2π (1) ( X − ct ) λ where b is the amplitude, λ is the wavelength and c is H ( X , t ) = a + b sin
the micro rotation vector Ω .The micropolar fluids can support stress and body couples and find their applications in a special case of fluid in which micro rotational motions are important. Arimon and Cakmak  discussed three basic viscous flows of micropolar fluids. They are couette and poiseuille flows between two parallel plates and the problem of a rotating fluid with a free surface. Srinivasacharya et al.  made a study on the peristaltic pumping of a micropolar fluid in a tube. In this paper, we considered the peristaltic transport of a

EQUATIONS OF MOTION The corresponding non-dimensional boundary conditions are Under the assumption that the channel length is ∂u (5) y=0 = 0 at an integral multiple of the wavelength λ and the pressure ∂y difference across the ends of the channel is a constant, ∂Ω (6) y=0 = 0 at the flow becomes steady in the wave frame (x, y ) moving

Figures (7) to (11) are drawn to study the effect of various parameters on the microrotation velocity. From figure (7) it is observed that an increase in the angle of inclination decreases the microrotation velocity. From figure (8) it is noticed that decrease in the darcy number decreases the microrotation velocity. It is also observed that the velocity profiles are parabolic and the velocity attains the maximum at the central line of the channel. From figure

The electricity is some problem for the economic development of Bangladesh. The country is getting trouble due to Department of Energy (DOE) refers large hydropower carbon emission of developed country. Bangladesh has power plants having the generation capacity of 30MW several rivers and canals providing off- grid network. This . Smaller hydropower plants are entitled as having paper focuses on the potential of micro-hydropower plant generation capacity of 100KW to 30MW and microin Bangladesh. This paper also replicates on energy scenario of Bangladesh. To progress the economy of hydropower plants defines as from 5KW to 100KW . Bangladesh it is need to explore green energy providing Due to the hilly northeast and southeast region of good investigation on establishment of extensive micro- Bangladesh, there are some possibilities to install the hydropower plant. The most likely sites for microhydropower have low head(less than 10m) that also has a hydropower plant in hilly region. Kaptai Hydropower regular disparity. Thus the selection of suitable turbine plant is only one plant having capacity of 230MW which has a vital role on the sustainability of the project. The is located in Chittagong. The Water Development Board present potential sites are mentioned and means to and Power Development Board  have taken a survey identify new sites are outlined by performing hydrology It studies, topographic studies, head calculations, turbine of small Hydropower potential in the country. acknowledged 12 potential rivers/charas with an selection and so onward.
estimated annual production of 1.1 GWh in ChittagongBandarban area, 6.3 GWh in Sylhet and Moulovibazar area, 8.6 MWh in Mymensingh - Sherpur area and 1.8 GWh in the Dinajpur-Rangpur area. However, only limited study has been made for the micro-hydro potential. Recently, LGED  has taken up a project at Bamerchara in Bashkhali of Chittagong District and BCSIR  in Sailpropat, Bandarban and in Madhobkundu, Moulovibazar. The BCSIR has estimated that these two sites have the potential for annual energy production of 43.8 MWh and 1.3 GWh respectively. To produce electricity with proper implementation of advance technology efficiently the water head of 2 meters can be appropriate. Due to the uneconomical planning of the grid network the energy problems in remote and hilly zone stay alive -. Microhydropower provides low-cost solution for these remote sites. It makes available a good solution for energy problems in remote and hilly areas where the extension of grid system is comparatively uneconomical .

INTRODUCTION Bangladesh with its rising commerce and industries is facing an overwhelming mission to handle up with the power calamity. The rapid increasing of power demand is not at same rate of power generation. The significant gap between power generation and estimated demand is to be approximately 2500MW . Consequently the uninterruptable power supply is not possible for organization and foreign investors are put off their concern from Bangladesh. Electrical energy consumption in Bangladesh is per capita is only 154KWhr which is much less than the developed country . In order to meet the challenge of energy crisis, Bangladesh needs to opt for the alternative solution in the formation of renewable energy as well as green energy giving concern on less carbon emission. The economic and environmental aspects should be taken into the consideration for achieving the goal of energy security and energy sustainability. Hydro power is the most widely used renewable energy due to the

Other relevant information is problems in design of hydro plant. The characteristics, the source of the stream and its direction of flow, roads to access the site, and also the size of the drainage parameters, and classification involved facilitate the area. Some of the sources for mapping include the choice of turbine. There are two methods of selection 1:50,000 scale national topographic system (NTS) . maps, 1:20,000 scale TRIM maps, local forestry maps, and custom maps based on recent photos.

B. Site Hydrology Hydrology study includes exploration of the origin of the stream flow and its destination. It also includes measurement of stream flow direction and flow rate. Although this study is time consuming, but it facilitates proper planning. The available tools to determine the hydrology of a potential site include maps, stream flow data, and water quality studies.
2) Analytical Selection: According to the head and discharge values, the turbine parameters are calculated using the formula
Where P is power in KW, and η is the system efficiency including turbine, generator, and gear box efficiency. Then specific speed can be calculated as
C. Water Quality Studies Studies should be performed to obtain relevant data regarding the level and variety of sediments like silt, fine sand, gravel, rocks, floating debris, and dissolved chemicals. Basically the data are used to determine the material for the equipment that comes in contact with water and also to take necessary precautions for the sediments that flow along the stream. There are other hydrological matters related to water quality studies that need to be considered.

D. High Head The water should be allowed the maximum vertical displacement and the shortest path to travel. The maximum vertical displacement accounts for the high water head. Large water head accounts for higher power produced. For high head, the turbine speed will be large; thus a small turbine can be opted for a given power output. However, at high heads the pipe pressure ratings and the strength of the pipe materials should be considered for design. Water must be allowed in the shortest route to travel; otherwise it will require long penstock which is quite costly. Longer pathway for the water to travel will reduce its flow rate due to fluid and other forms of friction.
