  1. 1. Improving energy security for individual households during outages : A simulation study for households in Sweden

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik

    Author : Amelie Bennich; [2019]
    Keywords : Off-grid; Energy security; Solar power; Energy storage; Outage;

    Abstract : In this study, it was investigated how individual households could manage security of supply during an outage by installing a local energy system that could operate independently from the electricity grid. By installing local renewable off-grid energy systems, households could guarantee an uninterrupted supply of energy even during an outage on the electricity grid, while also increasing their energy autonomy during normal circumstances.

  2. 2. Introducing a central receiver system for industrial high-temperature process heat applications : A techno-economic case study of a large-scale CST plant system in a South African manganese sinter plant

    University essay from KTH/Kraft- och värmeteknologi; KTH/Kraft- och värmeteknologi

    Author : Maria Hallberg; Elin Hallme; [2019]
    Keywords : Solar energy; concentrating solar thermal; CST; central receiver system; CR; HelioPod; high-temperature process heat; manganese; business case; Solenergi; koncentrerad termisk solvärme; CST; soltorn; HelioPod; högtempererad processvärme; mangan; affärsmodell;

    Abstract : The objective of this thesis was to investigate the potential for introducing a concentrating solar thermal (CST) central receiver plant system based on flexible heliostats - HelioPods - to provide high-temperature process heat in industrial applications. A CST plant system was designed in MATLAB, optically simulated for three design days in the ray-tracing software Tonatiuh and further analyzed in MATLAB by interpolating the results for each hour of the year.

  3. 3. Building-Integrated Photovoltaics for a Habitat on Mars : A Design Proposal Based on the Optimal Location and Placement of Integrated Solar Cells

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Anna Schylander; [2019]
    Keywords : Building-integrated solar cells; Solar energy; Mars;

    Abstract : The ever-increasing challenges that we face with our consumption of resources on Earth are factors which have prompted researchers to show interest in studying the possibilities of human habitat on other celestial bodies. Mars is a stone planet and is at such distance from the sun that it could be feasible for future settlements with the right technology and solutions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Design of an Autonomous Weeding Vehicle

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Produktutveckling
