This work simulates the impact of horizontal motion on the Symphony wave power device. To that end the existing time domain simulation is expanded with a module that simulates horizontal motion in the 2d plane. This extension is coupled with the existing operational modelling. the extension is based on a mathematical motion model based on rigid...

In urban environments, more and more building added and building integrated photovoltaic (PV) systems are found. These systems use conventional PV modules which have a poor performance under non-uniform illumination conditions. When the module is partially shaded, either at least one subgroup is bypassed or the module current is limited by the...

The ever increasing installed capacity of renewable, sustainable energy is essential in order to keep the earth<br/>habitable. However, the intermittent nature of solar and wind energy do not strictly follow human energy<br/>demands. Therefore an energy of sufficient magnitude buffer is essential to provide a constant supply of<br/>energy that...

The development in technology and increased public interest has attributed to an unprecedented growth of E-mobility in recent years. Electric vehicles (EVs) even though viewed as emission free and environmental friendly can still contribute towards indirect emissions if charged by using traditional fossil fuels. The integration of renewable...
