  1. 1. Dispatch Optimizer for Concentrated Solar Power Plants

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Byggteknik och byggd miljö

    Author : Gilda Miranda; [2020]
    Keywords : Concentrated Solar Power; optimization; dispatch; thermal energy storage;

    Abstract : Concentrating solar power (CSP) plant is a promising technology that exploits direct normal irradiation (DNI) from the sun to be converted into thermal energy in the solar field. One of the advantages of CSP technology is the possibility to store thermal energy in thermal energy storage (TES) for later production of electricity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Production optimization for district heating : Short-term planning of district heating grid in Gävle, Sweden

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

    Author : Nicolas Lindgren; Karl Brogren; [2019]
    Keywords : Short-term planning; Optimization; District heating; Linear programming; Mixed integer non-linear programming; Branch and bound; Heat storage; MATLAB; TOMLAB;

    Abstract : Energy systems with a high portion of renewable energy from wind and solar power can suffer from fluctuations in production due to weak winds or cloudy weather, which may affect the electricity price. When producing heat and power in a combined heat and power plant, an additional heat storage tank can be used to store the heat surplus which is obtained when the power production is high, and the heat demand is low.

  3. 3. 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

  5. 5. Techno-Economic Analysis of an Innovative Purely Solar Driven Combined Cycle System based on Packed Bed TES Technology

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Tianqi Ruan; [2019]
    Keywords : Tower CSP Techno-economic analysis; Dynamic simulation; Tower CSP teknisk-ekonomisk analys; Dynamisk simulering;

    Abstract : With increasing awareness of environmental issues and worldwide requirements for sustainable development, renewable energy technologies with lower environmental impact, especially those having abundant resources like wind and solar energy, attract more attention. Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is one of the most promising solar energy technologies. READ MORE
