The electricity obtained from the photovoltaic (PV) system highly depends on various factors such as geographical location, solar radiation, weather conditions and orientation of solar panels. The electricity produced by the solar PV system can be assessed by using simulations. This paper presents a technical feasibility assessment of a 10 kWp rooftop solar PV system for a household in Thu Dau Mot City, Vietnam. The study presents the amount of electricity produced, the performance of the PV system and the system potential to reduce CO2 emissions into the environment. The designing and evaluating of the system performance is done by PV*SOL, PVsyst and PVGIS software. The project provides useful information for the pre-feasibility assessment phase of a residential solar PV project in Vietnam.
It is very common to stabilize the preset value (Wanted value) of analog signals such as temperature, pressure, weight, flow, speed in automatic control. However, these control objects often have some problems such as overshooting, taking a long time to bring the system to a steady value, and large errors. One of the most used systems to overcome these problems is the PID, which is a preset stabilizing system with a quick function that returns the system to the set value in a short time without overshooting. error is close to zero. However, determining the scale parameters Ki, integral Kp, and differential Kd for the system to work optimally is a problem that needs to be studied. This paper presents how to accurately determine differential, integral, and scale coefficients according to 3D virtual reality model. Used a lot in simulation modeling for training and practical applications.
Since 2017, the United Nations has strengthened the economic sanctions on North Korea. Many countries have stopped trading with North Korea, causing the economic certain difficulties. China has become a trade and tourism partner that accounting for almost all of the country's foreign currency earning. That had gone on until the beginning of 2020 when North Korea locked its borders to avoid the Covid-19 epidemic. North Korea is essentially famous for having published a quite relatively little information about themselves and being nicknamed “The Hermit Kingdom” due theirs policies. Therefore, the article will analyze mirror data from countries, then compare it with the actual situation of North Korea to assess the reliability of the data. Moreover, providing information on transport routes that is major contributor to China-North Korea. Thereby, drawing comments on China-North Korea merchandise trade and tourism industry relationship in that stage and proving North Korean economic adaptation under International sanctions. The author also suggests polices to reach the North Korean development of self-reliance economics.
High power losses are a great concern in operating electric distribution system. Reconfiguration is one of the most economic approaches for reducing power losses of the system. This study suggests a technique for dealing with the distribution system reconfiguration problem based on a water cycle algorithm for minimizing active power loss. The water cycle algorithm is a recently developed metaheuristic algorithm that inspired the process of water circulation for solving optimization problems. The effectiveness and performance of the water cycle algorithm were tested on the 33-node and 69-node systems. The water cycle algorithm was applied to determine the best configuration of the distribution system for active power loss minimization. The results yielded by the water cycle algorithm were compared with other optimization algorithms in the literature and the comparisons showed that the water cycle algorithm obtained good quality of solution for the problem. Therefore, the water cycle algorithm is the potential method for the distribution system reconfiguration problem.
The study is conducted to assess the level of noise pollution from traffic activities in urban areas (in the case of Thuan An city, Binh Duong province) with the specific goal of applying geographic information systems. (GIS) in building noise pollution distribution maps in the study area. The research team collected noise data at peak hours and normal hours on weekdays and weekends using noise meters at 61 survey points. Noise measurement data was then interpolated using IDW (Inverse Distance Weighting) method to assess the spatial distribution of noise in Thuan An city. In addition, the study digitizes traffic routes and special areas (hospitals, schools, churches - pagodas) in the study area to identify areas affected by sound noisy. The results show that the areas near the main road are most affected by noise during rush hour, while areas in the small lane are noise level within the permitted range. In addition, the results also show the difference in noise level and noise time between weekdays and weekends
Naringenin is a member of the flavonoid family. This natural compound represents a large proportion of secondary metabolites produced by higher plants and is a rich part of the human diet. Naringenin also has been used in the pharmaceutical and medical fields as an effective drug for anti-oxidative, anti-cancer, anti-obesity, and anti-inflammatory activities. Naringenin is also a typical plant metabolite, that has never been reported to be produced in prokaryotes. Recently, many papers reported that various members of the Streptomyces family, a genus of actinobacteria, had a novel pathway to produce Naringenin
International scientific publication is one of the activities that help improve the quality of scientific research and develop the brand name of the university. This paper presents some key features of Thu Dau Mot university’s international scientific publications through statistics from 2015 to 202 which based on criteria: the number of publications in international journals (included ISI, Scopus and non-ISI, Scopus), field of science, gender and research collaboration. In addition, this paper will discuss some initial identifications: (1) the number of international scientific publications has grown rapidly and steadily over the years; (2) the number of international scientific publications is concentrated in the natural science, engineering and technology; (3) social science and education’s contribution in international scientific publications has limited;(4) there is a significant difference in the number of international scientific publications between male and female; (5) Research collaboration has an important role in the international scientific publications of Thu Dau Mot university.

The novel is a constantly changing and evolving genre when it shows the width and depth in the reflection of reality, opening up endless dialogues about the value of human existence in its flexible structural framework. The article exploits, points out and evaluates theoretical achievements of the twentieth century novel. From this evaluation, the text identify the theoretical development trend of this genre in the twenty-first century, placed in the movement correlation, movement of contemporary Vietnamese literature seen from creative writing and receptive innovation.
In Vietnam, deviant behaviour in adolescents is increasingly popular and gradually becomes a major concern of the whole society. The purpose of this study is to identify Factors affecting deviant behavior of Vietnamese adolescents, including: Nature of adolescence (Biology, Intelligence and Cognitive functions) and Nurture (Family atmosphere, Education environment, Media and technology, Peer Pressure, and Religion and Politics). 426 survey samples were collected to serve the data analysis process as well as all hypotheses were examined by using STATISTIC 10 ver., LISREL 8.8 with Covariance Matrix, and LISREL model. This research showed that Nature of adolescence, Family atmosphere, Education environment, Social media and technology, Peer pressure have significant influence on deviant behavior of adolescents in Vietnam. The research also indicated that deviant behavior of Vietnamese adolescents is not affected by Religion and politics. The study also makes suggestions to improve morality and foster personality for adolescents in Vietnam, makes a small contribution to the country's further development.
ABSTRACT Sexual harassment in public places is a matter of concern in Vietnam. The purpose of this article is to understand and explain gender differences in perceptions of sexual harassment in public places, which is based on Brooks Gardner's gender interaction perspective. The study used both quantitative analysis based on the Chi-square test procedure and analysis of in-depth interview data coded by NVivo software. Research results showed that there were gender differences in the perceptions of students in the Southeast region in terms of the forms, causes, and consequences of sexual harassment in public places. To improve understanding and reduce gender differences, it is necessary to organize communication activities to raise awareness and skills to prevent this evil in universities. Keywords: Sexual harassment in public places, students, gender difference
