B. y. Ko Lu Atilla Thermodynamic Analysis. Optimization of a Thermal Energy Storage System

The aim of this study is to analyze a sensible heat thermal energy storage system designed for storing and later using of energy; from thermodynamic point of view, and also to obtain optimum operation conditions for various operation parameters in order to minimize the irreversibilities in the system taking into account the pressure drop effect. The operation of the investigated sensible heat thermal energy storage system is divided into two parts; storage and removal processes. Considering the first and second law of thermodynamics, each part is studied separately. The results are combined in order to get the final solution for complete system. The detailed analyses were performed from both the first and second law perspective of thermodynamics on the proposed model to store sensible energy at optimum conditions. The parametric studies were focused on the determination of optimum operational values such as dimensionless storage time, dimensionless temperature, Number of Transfer Units, the first law and second law efficiencies, the ratio of mass flow rates.

Energy storage examines different applications such as electric power generation, transmission and distribution systems, pulsed systems, transportation, buildings and mobile applications. For each of these applications, proper energy storage technologies are foreseen, with their advantages, disadvantages and limits. As electricity cannot be stored cheaply in large quantities, energy has to be stored in another form (chemical, thermal, electromagnetic, mechanical) and then converted back into electric power and/or energy using conversion systems. Most of the storage technologies are examined: batteries, hydrogen, super capacitors, SMES, flywheels, CAES, thermal storage and hydraulic gravitational storage.

An extensive amount of research on PV-Thermal collectors has been carried out over the past 25 years. The electrical conversion efficiency of solar cell is in the range of 6-15%, depending on type solar-cell at standard temperature and pressure. When a solar radiation incident on the panel it generate electricity and 75-80% of the absorbed radiation is dissipated in the form of heat to the surrounding after photovoltaic conversion. High solar irradiation increases the electrical conversion efficiency but also increases the temperature of panel. A PV/T hybrid system is a combination of photovoltaic and solar thermal system. The solar PV/T system is an integrated system which can produce both electricity and heat simultaneously. In this work, performance evaluation of PV/T hybrid water collector is evaluated and compared with the solar PV system. The hybrid design gives additional advantages, such as a reduction of the thermal stresses and hence a longer life of the PV module, high performance and reliability, low maintenance and a stabilization of the solar cell current-voltage characteristics. The collected thermal energy can be used for low temperature applications.

The electrical power supply is about to change; future generation will increasingly take place in and near local neighborhoods with diminishing reliance on distant power plants. The existing grid is not adapted for this purpose as it is largely a remnant from the 20th century. Can the grid be transformed into an intelligent and flexible grid that is future proof? This revised edition of Electrical Power System Essentials contains not only an accessible, broad and up-to-date overview of alternating current (AC) power systems, but also end-of-chapter exercises in every chapter, aiding readers in their understanding of the material introduced. With an original approach the book covers the generation of electric energy from thermal power plants as from renewable energy sources and treats the incorporation of power electronic devices and FACTS. Throughout there are examples and case studies that back up the theory or techniques presented. The authors set out information on mathematical modelling and equations in appendices rather than integrated in the main text. This unique approach distinguishes it from other text books on Electrical Power Systems and makes the resource highly accessible for undergraduate students and readers without a technical background directly related to power engineering. After laying out the basics for a steady-state analysis of the three-phase power system, the book examines: generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization of electric energy wind energy, solar energy and hydro power power system protection and circuit breakers power system control and operation the organization of electricity markets and the changes currently taking place system blackouts future developments in power systems, HVDC connections and smart grids The book is supplemented by a companion website from which teaching materials can be downloaded.

This book focuses on the methods of storage commonly used in hybrid systems. After an introductory chapter reviewing the basics of electrochemistry, Chapter 2 is given over to the storage of electricity in the form of hydrogen. Once hydrogen has been made, we have to be able to convert it back into electricity on demand. This can be done with another energy converter: a fuel cell, the subject of Chapter 3. Such a system is unable to deliver significant dynamics in terms of storage and release of electricity and needs to be supplemented with another solution: a detailed study of supercapacitors is provided in Chapter 4.While the storage systems touched upon in the previous three chapters (hydrogen batteries and supercapacitors) both exhibit advantageous characteristics, at present they are still relatively costly. Thus, the days of the electrochemical accumulator by no means appear to be numbered just yet. This will therefore be the topic of Chapter 5. Finally, on the basis of the elements laid down in the previous chapters, Chapter 6 will focus on electrical hybridization of these storage systems, with a view to enhancing the performance (in terms of energy, lifetime, cost, etc.) of the newly formed system. Aimed at an audience of researchers, industrialists, academics, teachers and students, many exercises, along with corrected solutions, are provided throughout the book. Contents 1.

Currently, renewable energy generation (REG) in China has experienced rapid development. Although the issue of grid connection rate exists worldwide, it is particularly severe in China. This book proposes a coordinated management mechanism with full consideration of China's resource endowment, technology level and power system. The ultimate coordinated management mechanism for the orderly grid connection of REG is proposed with two sub-mechanisms, the integrated planning coordinated management mechanism and the transmission coordinated management mechanism. With the application of it, an orderly large-scale grid connection of REG will be achieved gradually and the usage efficiency of energy and power will be improved. Besides, aiming at the new development and utilization situation of China's energy sources, this book proposed a new pattern called ''regional multi-energy system'' to promote the energy structure optimization in China. This system ensure the priority of renewable energy sources (RES) in the development and utilization.

What do we do with all the information available to us? Do we take advantage of it? Can the weather forecast be used differently besides predicting the temperatures and whether we have to take an umbrella or not?Are the prices for electricity only used to find out how much we have to pay for the energy bill? The Smart Grid Simulator is a computer software which has as the main purpose to lower the energy bill in an optimized price efficient way for private households, companies or energy providers. It combines the energy provided by a number of solar modules and wind turbines with the consumption of one household or a cluster of nearby households and information regarding weather conditions and energy prices in order to predict the amount of energy that can be produced by renewable energy sources and the amount of energy that will be bought from the distributor for the following day. The user of the system will not only be able to minimize his expenditures on energy bills, but also he will be informed about his hourly consumption, electricity prices fluctuation and money spent for energy bought as well as how much money he saved each day and since he installed the system.

Debajyoti Bose, Krishnam Goyal, Vidushi Bhardwaj Design and development of a solar parabolic concentrator and integration with a solar desalination system

Project Report from the year 2016 in the subject Energy Sciences, grade: 8, University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, language: English, abstract: The Indian subcontinent is blessed with an ample amount of sunlight almost all through the year. There is an urgent need of switching over to a perennial source of energy as an alternative to replace all the quickly depleting fossil fuels. There is much interest in non-conventional energy nowadays, so as to tap energy from unassuming but promising quarters like Solar, Wind and Tidal energy. Of those, tapping the heat and infra-red rays from the sun, using air and water as appropriate mediums, separately and together as a whole, is the most easiest and versatile way of energy capture.This book is concerned with the designing of an efficient solar parabolic collector to trap the solar heat in the receiver through the combination of concave mirrors. A small scale parabolic dish was fabricated with locally available material like stainless steel for the boiler, and painting it black to increase the absorption. As a matter of application of the project, a solar desalination system was integrated with the project to test the feasibility of the research. The desalination system worked successfully in conjunction with the experimental setup and a reduction in the TDS level of the feed water was observed at the condensation end. Thus, the project is feasible for cleaning or purifying the water by renewable sources.
