Abstract

Industrial halls are characterized with their relatively high roof-to-floor ratio, which facilitates ready deployment of renewable energy generation, such as photovoltaic (PV) systems, on the rooftop. To promote deployment of renewable energy generation, feed-in tariff (FIT) higher [...]

Abstract

This study offers a unified perspective into the unexpected solar energy photovoltaic revolution, and its far reaching impact onto both energy generation and electricity markets. Practically relevant aspects, such as those related to the value of solar PV electricity, land consumption, [...]

Abstract

This paper presents a research was carried out for the management of a photovoltaic system in a Microgrid, with applications and the use of tools applied to modeling and computational simulation in the Microgrid laboratory implanted in the facilities of the University of Cuenca (Ecuador). [...]

Abstract

Due to increasing penetration of decentralized variable renewable energy generators and the increasing demand of electrical power due to the electrification of the heat and transport sectors, low voltage grids are facing critical problems. Deviation of the permitted voltage range [...]

Abstract

The urban and rural energy systems are undergoing modernization. This modernization is motivated by the need to increase sustainability in both systems. Some characteristics of this modernization include electrification of industries, transports, and heating and cooling loads. Additionally, [...]

Abstract

With conventional generating units being replaced by renewable sources which are not required to provide same high level of ancillary services, there is an increasing need for additional resources to achieve certain standards regarding frequency and voltage. This paper investigates [...]

Abstract

The Swedish company Solelia Greentech AB has developed a charging station forelectric vehicles based on photovoltaic electricity. This report aims to examine theenvironmental impacts of the charging station in terms of greenhouse gas emissionsand energy flows. This has been done by [...]

Abstract

fossil fuels are depleted and their environmental impacts remain, other sources of energy must be considered to generate power. Renewable sources, for example, are emerging to play a major role in this regard. In parallel, electric vehicle (EV) charging is evolving as a major load [...]

Abstract

With the increase in electric mobility, public and private charge facilities will be required to provide solutions adjusted to the actual needs and requirements. A new methodology for dimensioning charge stations for electric vehicles (EVs) is presented in this paper. Such proposal [...]

Abstract

This article presents an in-situ comparative analysis and power quality tests of a newly developed photovoltaic charging system for e-bikes. The various control methods of the inverter are modeled and a single-phase grid-connected inverter is tested under different conditions. Models [...]
