  1. 1. Life cycle assessment of a plus-energy house

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Tim Lohse; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Purpose: This study analyses the environmental impacts of a plus-energy house. Such buildings produce more energy in their use-phase than they consume, by generating energy with photovoltaic cells and saving energy via extensive insulation. The entire life cycle of the building is investigated form cradle to grave. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of a Smart Charging Algorithm for Electric Vehicles at Home

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper

    Author : Rebecca Segelsjö Duvernoy; Johanna Lundblad; [2019]
    Keywords : smart charging; electric Vehicle; photovoltaic; household load; self-consumption;

    Abstract : The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to develop a smart charging algorithm for electric vehicles (EVs) and examine the potential of the smart charging scheme, compared to uncontrolled charging scheme at residential houses with an installed photovoltaic (PV) system. The thesis examines if smart charging can increase the photovoltaic self-consumption and self-sufficiency of houses. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Self-sufficiency of the vineyard of Chteau de la Chaize : Design and Simulation of a grid-connected PV system in South of France

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Noriko Jia Yong Claudine Ly; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The task of this master thesis is to evaluate the potential and economic feasibility of a solar photovoltaic project at the Castle Chteau de la Chaize, situated near Lyon in France. The domain of the Chteau de la Chaize aims to be more ecologically responsible, by producing organic wine, using geothermal energy and producing its own electricity, using solar energy. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
