This paper tries to contribute to the well-known and lengthy discussion on whether we should allow decision makers to be inconsistent, or, to put it in another way, if intransitive decisions better represent their preferences. We will focus specifically on the multiple-criteria decision making problem, since it is one of the most usual stances where this(More)
This paper presents a generation expansion model for the power sector which incorporates several features that make it very interesting for its application to current electricity markets: it considers the possible oligopolistic behavior of firms, and incorporates relevant policy instruments, carbon emissions trading and tradable green certificates. It(More)
A continuous-flow method for the determination of nitrate and phosphate in water is proposed. The method is based on insertion of reagents and sample solutions into a single channel through a programmable switching valve. The method depends upon heteropolyacid with phosphate and on the modified Griess reaction for nitrate, and permits the determination of(More)
Analytical chemistry is one of the chemical areas where ultrasonic radiation has been only infrequently used (namely in sample pretreatment, separations, automatic analytical systems and clinical analysis). This auxiliary technique would constitute a powerful aid in the automation of several steps in analytical processes: its advantages and disadvantages,(More)
A fully automated flow system for on-line monitoring of analytes/parameters of interest in aquaculture is described. The approach has been optimized for the photometric determination of nitrite and ammonia and the continuous monitoring of pH, conductivity and dissolved oxygen, but these analytes/parameters are readily changeable as required. The system has(More)
This article describes photometric flow injection (FI) methods for the determination of ammonia and nitrite in aquaculture. The methods are based on the use of normal and reversed FI approaches and show the potential of this technique for monitoring the input and output streams of small tanks at young fish-breeding farms. The methods meet the requirements(More)
