Renewable Energy

generate air conditioning and cooling system in refrigerator. Moreover, this kind of energy can be transformed to generate electricity by two ways. First of all, Prasad & Bansal (2011) state that electricity is converted directly from light by Photovoltaic (PV) via semiconducting materials, whose basic composition is solar cells. Furthermore, Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is another way to generate electricity, in which parabolic solar tower focuses the light to be used for a single point heating...

The Stand-Alone Hybrid Power Systems Analysis

Stand-Alone Hybrid Power Systems (SAHPS) is presented. It consists of two level named Centralized Fuzzy Supervisory Control (CFSC) which choose the power references for each Decentralized Robust Fuzzy Scheduler Control (DRFSC). SAHPS comprises: a photovoltaic panel (PV) and Wind Turbine (WT) as renewable sources, a micro turbine generator and a battery storage system. The proposed control strategy is able to satisfy the load requirements based on a fuzzy supervisor controller and manage power flows...

Solar Energy and Wind Energy

similar to Wind Energy in that it is cost effective, reliable, clean and infinite. Solar Energy is produced by two different types of Solar, these including Concentrated Solar and Photovoltaic Solar. Concentrated Solar uses mirrors to reflect sunlight to collect and convert into heat, as Photovoltaic Solar uses Photovoltaic cells (PV) where the cells are used as a conductor to convert the sunlight to electricity (Clean Line, 2013). The most common resource used upon households to generate electricity...

Alternative Energy

sides concentrating solar power are photovoltaics and solar thermal. But what is the difference between these three types of solar power? Concentrating solar power converts concentrated heat energy from sunlight into electricity. photovoltaics convert the energy of sunlight directly into electricity. Solar thermal harnesses the suns energy to heat buildings and water with out converting any of the suns power into electricity first.(Hamer, Pa. 5) “PV's[ photovoltaics ] ability to generate electricity...

Structura, Inc. Case Study

(Non-Conventional Resources Division). Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC) was the implementing arm through its Energy Research and Development Center (ERDC). The technology introduced by the Germans is for the installation of stand-alone photovoltaic energy generating systems or solar energy systems for households that are out-of-reach from the conventional power grid. More than 17 kilometers of distance from the power grid would make the PV systems unfeasible because if it is much shorter...

Solar Cars

diffuse source of energy and hence can lead to low energy production. The concentration on the solar energy is a key factor in the working of solar cars and it depends on factors like the surface area of the solar panels, the condition of the Photovoltaic cells and the charging status of the batteries in the battery pack. As solar cars and solar technology are still in the developing phase, the Installation kits and labour involved is expensive. This is one of the major reasons restricting...
