  1. 1. Solar Tent : A Photovoltaic Generator Model for a Flexible Fabric with Inbuilt Cells

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik; Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Ali Manhal; Tammam M. Ali; [2019]
    Keywords : Solar tent; PV system; refugee camp; PV monitoring system; and flexible PV modules;

    Abstract : Natural disasters and conflicts in many different parts of the world force thousands of people to get displaced from their homes and live in refugee camps temporarily or permanently. For refugee families, lack of energy access has great impact on their lives. READ MORE

  2. 2. PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEM YIELD EVALUATION IN SWEDEN : A performance review of PV systems in Sweden 2017-2018

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Eric Schelin; [2019]
    Keywords : PV; Photovoltaics; Specific yield; Simulations; Shadowing; PVGIS; PVsyst; Solar irradiation;

    Abstract : The goal of this study is to evaluate Swedish photovoltaic systems regarding energy production from two different years and compare the gathered data with results from a model simulating optimal conditions. This is done to investigate how the energy production differs between each year, why there are differences, and also to evaluate the simulation tools compared to the real production data. READ MORE

  3. 3. Conjunctive Operation of Hydro and Solar PV Power with Pumped Storage at Kafue Gorge Power Station (Zambia)

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Elvis Nyirenda; [2019]
    Keywords : Photovoltaic; Hydro; Power; Storage; Pumped Hydro Storage; Zambia;

    Abstract : This report covers the work carried out to redesign the two existing conventional hydro power stations in Zambia on the Kafue river into the pumped storage facility with solar photovoltaic power so that security of supply and water conservation is achieved to reduce the power deficits during the dry and drought periods. The two stations are Kafue gorge upper power station (KGUPS) and Kafue gorge lower power station (KGLPS) with an installed capacity of 990 MW and 750 MW respectively. READ MORE

  4. 4. Study of defects in PV modules : UV fluorescence and Thermographic photography for Photovoltaics (PV) Field Application

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik; Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Sophie Nylund; Zahra Barbari; [2019]
    Keywords : UV fluorescence; IR thermography; defects in PV modules; delamination; discoloration; hotspots; snail trails; cracks; fault in bypass diode; non-functioning cell in PV;

    Abstract : For a PV plant it is of fundamental importance that the operation of the PV modules is free from faults or at least that the faults can be detected early, to ensure efficient electricity production. Some defects such as cracks can be seen in visible light while microcracks and damage to the silicon material can only be seen through special lighting. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluating the Economic Feasibility of Utilizing Power Optimizers in Various PVSystems

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : George Pius Perangatt; [2018]
    Keywords : Power optimizer; MPPT; module level MPPT; SolarEdge; TIGO;

    Abstract : Integration of power optimizers in photovoltaic systems is standard practice in some parts of the world. Manufacturers claim that optimizers can significantly reduce electrical losses due to shading. Hence, it is important to investigate this claim and determine under what conditions it is economically warranted to utilize optimizers. READ MORE
