Power/energy: Demand-side load management: The rising cost of peak-demand power means that utilities must encourage customers to manage power usage

IEEE Spectrum, 1981

As electricity cost increases, more and more utilities are extending their activities into once-forbidden territory: the customer's side of the meter. In order to increase efficiency and hold the line on costs, they are controlling, directly and indirectly, when and how the electric energy is used-shifting from a supply-side-only viewpoint to demand-side technologies. They are including the customer as a ...


Life testing and stability of SnO2/n-Si solar cells

1978 International Electron Devices Meeting, 1978

The cells were then encapsulated in various ways and the stability and degradation mechanisms for these cells were examined using SIMS depth profiling and accelerated weather testing. Preliminary results indicate an initial efficiency decrease followed by a slower rate ...

  • Power/energy: Demand-side load management: The rising cost of peak-demand power means that utilities must encourage customers to manage power usage

    As electricity cost increases, more and more utilities are extending their activities into once-forbidden territory: the customer's side of the meter. In order to increase efficiency and hold the line on costs, they are controlling, directly and indirectly, when and how the electric energy is used-shifting from a supply-side-only viewpoint to demand-side technologies. They are including the customer as a new utility corporate planning option. This control is called load management. It aims to even out or change the magnitude of hour-to-hour and season-to-season variations in electricity demands; it cuts off the peaks and fills in the valleys in demand-time curves. The procedure benefits utilities by allowing more uniform use of generating equipment and thus benefits users by helping to hold down rates. Implementation and effects of this type of load management are discussed.

  • Life testing and stability of SnO2/n-Si solar cells

    SnO2/Si solar cells having 10-12% sunlight engineering efficiencies were fabricated by electron beam evaporation of SnO2and by spraying SnCl4onto heated Si. The cells were then encapsulated in various ways and the stability and degradation mechanisms for these cells were examined using SIMS depth profiling and accelerated weather testing. Preliminary results indicate an initial efficiency decrease followed by a slower rate of degradation which decreased as a function of time. Depending upon the cell environment, the fill factor remained constant or decreased by a few percent. The short circuit current remained constant and the Vocdecreased independent of the testing conditions of the cell. A decrease of Voccan indicate a change in junction parameters, oxide thickness or surface state density. It has been suggested that the device degradation may be attributed to diffusion of the grid metals. SIMS analysis indicated the Cr and Al used in grids on earlier cells penetrated through the entire SnO2layer. It is possible that the back contact is forming a junction with the Si and reduces the open circuit voltage of the cell.

  • Design and fabrication of indoor solar thermal cooker using therminole

    This paper proposes an indoor solar thermal cooker (STC) to cook various food items and to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. An indoor STC is designed and fabricated for this purpose. The main theme of research is to increase the heat storage strength, even in the absence of solar irradiation. Charging time is decreased by using the solar thermal dish, and discharging time is increased by specific use of insulation. A non-magnetic stainless-steel fry pan is employed to avoid food items' flavor diversions. Research work is focused on characterizing the materials for cookers to enhance efficiency. Heat storage material therminole is used to make it more effective. Stainless steel sheets are rolled to keep STC systematically strong. These sheets are joined via Argon welding plant to stop heat leakage. Polyurethane, glass wool, and fiber cloth sheets are inserted for heat conservation. Experimentally, different food items are baked and boiled and elapsed time is measured.

  • An experimental investigation of the effect of moisture on the performance of an air-conditioning system

    Tests were conducted at the University of Florida's Solar Energy and Energy Conversion Laboratory (SEECL) to determine the effect of the moisture on the performance of a 3 ton residential heat pump system with R-22 as the working fluid. The performance of the heat pump system was tested in accordance with the ARI Standard 210/240 (ARI 1989) and ANSI/ASHRAE-37-1988 for testing unitary equipment. ASHRAE's "Air Enthalpy Method" was used to determine the performance of heat pump system and ASHRAE's condition "A" [Outside 95/spl deg/F DBT/75/spl deg/F WBT; Inside 80/spl deg/F DBT/67/spl deg/F WBT] was maintained for the tests. The experimental data reveals that moisture levels of approximately 700 ppm in the refrigerant can decrease the system performance by 10-15%. Approximately 50-60% of the moisture injected into the system remains in the refrigerant and the rest mixes with the compressor oil. Hence, it is possible that over a period of time the moisture in the compressor oil may breakdown at the prevailing temperatures and pressures to form acids which may result in catastrophic failure.

  • Surface energy balance estimates in the Po river plain using Landsat TM, NOAA AVHRR and meteorological data

    The aim of this work is to assess the effectiveness of approaches for energy fluxes estimation at the boundary layer by TM, AVHRR and ground meteorological measurements, comparing the results to ground measurements. These include, besides meteorological records such as air temperature, relative humidity, air pressure and wind speed, other parameters such as total and net solar radiation, soil temperature and heat flux at different depths. The ground station is located at S. Pietro Capofiume in the south eastern Po river plain and is managed jointly by ENEL and CISE. Following experiments reported in the literature the energy balance parameters have been evaluated and compared in the authors' case from remotely sensed measurements obtained from Thematic Mapper and NOAA multitemporal datasets registered in the same days of year.

  • Study of thermal performance of a black liquid shallow solar pond under various operating conditions

    A black liquid solar collector cum storage system is studied. The liquid, being black, absorbs most of the radiation; also there is little reflection loss from the water surface. The performance of the system has been predicted by the finite-difference method for various operating conditions, such as intermittent flow, instantaneous flow, and constant flow. The thermal performance of the black liquid system was compared with that of a conventional and plastic bag shallow solar pond (SSP), and the SSP containing black liquid was found to be more efficient than other systems.<<ETX>>

  • Simulation research on solar air collector

    In this paper numerical simulated the thermal properties of solar air collector. With the ray-tracing solar load model provided by Fluent software, the solar radiation heat flux can be solve using radiation heat transfer equation, and then consider loading radiation heat into the source terms of the energy equation. The thermal effects rules of air flow and heat transfer in the collector box, temperature fields as well as the wind speed and solar radiation and other related factors under the different conditions have been discussed and analyzed.

  • Viability of complementary sun concentrated based power plants for offshore structures

    In this article it is described the analysis of the viability of a megawatt class power plant based on the conventional Rankine cycle to be applied on offshore structures as complementary renewable source thermal energy. The high temperature heat source from a solar concentrator combined with fossil fuel, the low temperature heat sink from sea water bottom, the use of residual heat from thermal engines refrigeration and exhaust gas heat associated to the thermal storage facilities at high temperatures, are the main characteristics for an efficient concentrated solar dynamic power plant for offshore environments. The case studied revealed the viability of the plant as a complement to the conventional fossil fuel based thermal energy based plants.
