Analysis of bidirectional PWM converter for application of residential solar air conditioning system

Proceedings of 1994 IEEE 1st World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion - WCPEC (A Joint Conference of PVSC, PVSEC and PSEC), 1994

In conventional solar air conditioning systems, the diode rectifier is used to build up DC link voltage from an AC utility source. The diode rectifier is simple and cheap but the reversal of power flow cannot be made.

Thermal storage of off-peak electrical energy in solar heating and cooling systems

1978 IEEE Conference on Decision and Control including the 17th Symposium on Adaptive Processes, 1979

As fossil fuels become ever scarcer, the back-up systems for solar heating and cooling systems tend to employ electrical energy. This puts high peak demands on the electric utilities supplying solar heating customers, because the thermal storage of solar heating systems is likely to be empty during cold periods which coincide with the peak loads of winter peaking utilities. Oversizing ...

  • Analysis of bidirectional PWM converter for application of residential solar air conditioning system

    In conventional solar air conditioning systems, the diode rectifier is used to build up DC link voltage from an AC utility source. The diode rectifier is simple and cheap but the reversal of power flow cannot be made. It can derate the utilization of solar cells and there problems of low power factor and harmonics at the AC input side have also occurred. Hence, in addition to peak power cutting in summer, some advantages can be obtained by adopting PWM power converters in solar air conditioners. As a result, the characteristics of the PWM power converter, such as low distorted current waveform and unity power factor are obtained. The proposed system is also verified by examining the dynamics of the PV power system to step load change as well as power reversal testing.

  • Thermal storage of off-peak electrical energy in solar heating and cooling systems

    As fossil fuels become ever scarcer, the back-up systems for solar heating and cooling systems tend to employ electrical energy. This puts high peak demands on the electric utilities supplying solar heating customers, because the thermal storage of solar heating systems is likely to be empty during cold periods which coincide with the peak loads of winter peaking utilities. Oversizing thermal storage is shown not to be an efficient way of decreasing peak demands from solar heating backup systems. Solar cooling systems, on the other hand, are likely to be beneficial to electric utilities because, in general, sunny weather and periods of summer peaking utility load peaks are coincident. The thermal storage devices of solar systems can be used to reduce electric demand peaks by storing off-peak power. The use of separate storage devices for solar and off-peak electrical energy is shown to be desirable. However, the resultant increase in first cost must be weighed against cost reductions from lower peak demands.

  • Application of a Transition Graph-Based Predictive Algorithm to a Solar Air Conditioning Plant

    This brief presents the development of a transition graph-based predictive algorithm and its application to a solar air conditioning plant. The process considered is a hybrid system of variable configuration subject to disturbances in its main energy source, namely solar radiation. The predictive algorithm switches between the operating modes of the plant on the basis of minimizing the performance cost function associated to each operating mode and the switching cost function associated to the transition between operating modes. The cost functions depend on the predicted states of the plant. A transition graph is used to reduce the computational cost of the optimization problem; the graph is plotted using the concept of reachability. The main objective of the predictive algorithm is to find the optimal solution to the configuration problem and the optimal control signal of the plant throughout the day. Experimental results show that solar energy was used during most of the test and cooling demand was satisfied.

  • Predictive control of a solar air conditioning plant with simultaneous identification

    This paper presents the application of a predictive controller with simultaneous identification to a solar air conditioning plant. The time varying nature of the process makes necessary an adjustment of the controller parameters to the varying operational conditions. The main novelty with respect to classic adaptive MPC scheme is to penalize the identificationt error in the cost function used for control. The behaviour of the controller is illustrated by simulations and experimental results. The integration of identification and control avoids the tedious identification procedure that is necessary before the start-up of any predictive controller. This new adaptive MPC scheme shows its effectiveness in controlling the outlet temperature in the solar thermal plant.

  • Application of MPC with multiple objective for a solar refrigeration plant

    This paper presents a multiobjective model predictive control algorithm which allows the specification of different control goals at different operating points. The algorithm is illustrated with an application to a very detailed model of a solar cooling plant. The plant is used to cool down an office building with varying operating conditions. The plant is a nonlinear multivariable process subject to high disturbances and changing operating loads.

  • Experimental study for a double glazed forced-convection solar collector/regenerator for open-cycle absorption cooling system

    An experimental study of a double-glazed forced-convection solar collector/regenerator for absorption solar cooling is presented. The south facing experimental solar collector/regenerator with 10/spl deg/ slope is located at Kaohsiung, Taiwan at 120/spl deg/18'E longitude and 22/spl deg/34'N latitude. The size of the collector is 1 m wide and 7 m long. Previous study for a single-glazed forced-convection solar collector/regenerator operated at the same location has shown to have a best day-average efficiency of 17%. In order to raise the system performance, a double-glazed collector/regenerator is constructed such that air can be pre-heated in the upper channel flow. The pre-heated air is then conducted into the lower channel where it contacts with the film flow of solar heated lithium-chloride solution and regenerates the solution by carrying out the evaporated water vapor. Since the preheated air has lower relative humidity ratio, the regeneration driving potential is increased. The present study shows that the best day-average efficiency can reach 20% which increases the feasibility of the open-cycle absorption solar cooling system. Effects of controlling parameters on the collector/regenerator performance are studied, and heat and mass transfer correlations are also presented for design purposes.

  • Low cost microprocessor based optimal controller for solar cooling systems

    A low cost microprocessor based optimal controller for a typical solar cooling system was implemented. Controller simulation results indicate that a net reduction of more than 30% in auxiliary energy is possible due to overall performance improvement. A dynamic mathematical model for a lithium bromide- water (LiBr-Water) chiller was developed to be used for deriving an optimal control algorithm. A control law based on the minimization of a quadratic performance index that incorporates enclosure temperature deviations and auxiliary energy was derived. The resulting controller, targeted for end- users, is versatile and inexpensive.
