Thermal Simulation of Low Concentration PV/Thermal System using a Computational Fluid Dynamics SoftwareStylianou, S. (author)Cogenra company has created a low concentration PV/Thermal system that produces both thermal energy and electricity simultaneously, mainly for commercial and industrial applications. The realization of a system that combines photovoltaic modules, solar thermal collectors and concentrating mirrors makes it a complicated system to study. So far,...master thesis 2016
In this thesis diffuser performance will be simulated with computational fluid dynamics, which will be done with the program Ansys Fluent. The expanding geometry creates an adverse pressure gradient and under certain conditions there will also be separation.master thesis 2017
At first a relative simple simulation will be done of a one-directional...
