An Expert System for Estimating Cost and Analysis of Air Pollution Control.
Masters thesis, Universiti Putra Malaysia.
Abstract
Expert System for Estimating Cost and Analysis of Air Pollution Control was developed
using CLIPS. The developed Expert Systems facilitate decision making involving
selection of the best available technology as control measure. It was discovered that at
equilibrium, total cost of reduction is equal to total cost of damages. It was further found
that change in quantity of Air pollution is positive. This shows direct relationship. Total
excess damage is directly proportional to total cost of reduction. When excess damage is
increasing the total cost of reduction is increasing as well. In the same way, when total
cost of reduction is decreasing, the excess damage is decreasing as well. The total cost
function is dependent on the quantity of emission of the form: TC=f(Q) where TC is the
total cost and Q is the quantity of emission. Hence TC=QxP where P is the unit price.
There was also a breakthrough in the estimation of Welfare loss due to excess
pollution. The relationship between quantity of excess pollution and Welfare loss due to excess pollution was derived. This devoted and faithful research has further developed
Emission Elasticity.
