Operation of a multistory solar building under adverse climatic conditions

Taşdemiroğlu, E
Architectural, urban, thermal, economic and industrial aspects of a multistory solar building have been investigated when operating under adverse climatic conditions in Turkey. Active, passive and hybrid space heating systems which could be adapted to the building structure have been studied comparatively. The magnitudes of the design elements and the technical-economic results of the selected hybrid system have been determined. A domestic hot water installation has been also described

Modeling and simulations of a micro solar power system
Pehlivanturk, Can; Ozkan, Onur; Baker, Derek Keıth (Wiley, 2014-07-01)
In this paper, the mathematical modeling and simulations of a concentrating solar power system located at the Middle East Technical University Northern Cyprus Campus are presented. The system consists of parabolic trough collectors (PTCs), a propane boiler, an organic Rankine cycle (ORC), and a wet cooling tower. Presently, the PTC field is severely undersized with respect to the ORC making the system impossible to operate without burning significant propane. Expanding the solar field could result in better...
Evaluation of hybridsolar-wind-hydrogenenergy system based on methanol electrolyzer
Budak, Yagmur; DEVRİM, YILSER (Wiley, 2020-10-01)
In this study, it is aimed to meet the annual electricity and heating needs of a house without interruption with the photovoltaic panel, wind turbine, methanol electrolyzer, and high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell system. The system results show that the use of the 2 WT with 18 PV was enough to provide the need of the methanol electrolyzer, which provides requirements of the high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell. The produced heat by the fuel cell was used to meet the heat requ...

The necessity for technical-economic analysis of solar energy systems is obvious when assessing their feasibility vis-á-vis conventional alternative systems. Optimum magnitudes of the installation parameters should be defined under the required economic conditions. In this study, the optimization procedure was chosen so as to maximize the total accumulated saving throughout the economic lifetime of the system. The annual solar heating fraction of the system is assessed using the f-chart method which can be ...
Numerical analysis ofdopant-freeasymmetric silicon heterostructure solar cell withSiO(2)as passivation layer
Mehmood, Haris; Nasser, Hisham; Tauqeer, Tauseef; Turan, Raşit (Wiley, 2020-08-01)
Conventional silicon heterojunction solar cells employ defects-prone a-Si:H layers for junction formation and passivation purposes. Substituting these layers with hole-selective MoO(x)and electron-selective TiO(x)can reduce parasitic absorption and energy band offsets issues associated with doped silicon films. In this work, dopant-free asymmetric heterostructure Si solar cells are studied with and without SiO(2)passivation layer, and their performance has been compared. The inclusion of ultrathin SiO(2)ins...
The potential and economic viability of solar photovoltaic power in Ghana
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (Informa UK Limited, 2016-01-01)
In this study, the potentiality and economic viability of solar photovoltaic (PV) in Ghana was assessed using RETScreen software. 5 MW of grid-connected solar PV power system using SunPower SPR-320E-WHT-D PV module can be harnessed from Navrongo, Bawku, Wa, Tema, Bolgatanga, Axim, Salaga, Kintampo, Kete Krachi, Tamale, Hohoe, Koforidua, Ejura, Takoradi, Bole, Sunyani, Bibiani, Cape coast, Prestea, and Akuse, which requires US$17,752,179 of investment capital and 25,313 m(2) of land for PV installation. The ...
