Long term concerns about climate change and fossil fuel depletion will require a transition towards energy systems powered by solar radiation or other renewable sources. Novel concepts based on silicon materials and devices are investigated for applications in the next generation photovoltaic (PV) devices and photoelectrochemical (PEC) water...

The electrical power sector is stimulated to evolve under the pressures of the energy transition, the deregulation of electricity markets and the introduction of intelligent grids. In general, engineers believe that technologies such as monitoring, control and diagnostic devices, can realize this evolvement smoothly. Unfortunately, the...

In summary, this thesis shows the development and nanostructure analysis of doped silicon oxide layers. These layers are applied in thin-film silicon single and double junction solar cells. Concepts of intermediate reflectors (IR), consisting of silicon and/or zinc oxide, are applied in tandem cells. Multi-stack Bragg reflector IRs are tested in...

The need for cost reduction requires using less raw material and cost-effective processes without sacrificing the conversion efficiency. For keeping high the generated photo-current, an advanced light trapping scheme for ultra-thin silicon wafers is here proposed, exhibiting absorptances up to 99% of 4n2 classical absorption limit for wafer...

The installed capacity of photovoltaic (PV) systems connected to low voltage (LV) networks in Germany has increased to more than 25 GW. Current grid codes still mandate these PV systems to disconnect in case of voltage dips below 0.8 p.u. The resulting response of LV distribution systems with high penetration of PV systems to faults in the...

At present, research in c-Si solar cells is focused on increasing the efficiency while reducing the amount of used materials. Since silicon wafer and metal contribute up to 50% to the cost of a module, it is crucial to reduce the amount of these materials to fabricate cost-effective modules. In particular, for reducing the consumption of metal,...

Silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cells constantly gain more attention due to their low cost and relatively high efficiency. An important aspect of these solar cells is the incorporation of intrinsic hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) layers at each side of the c-Si wafer, which has increased the efficiency potential due to the excellent...

Quantum wells (QWs) are nanostructures consisting of alternating layers of a low and high band-gap semiconductor. The band gap of QWs can be tuned by changing the thickness of the low band-gap layer, due to quantum confinement effects. Although this principle is well established for crystalline materials, there is still controversy for QWs...

Transients from lightning strikes can enter underground cables at overhead line to power cable transitions. Possible overvoltages on these surges at cross-bonding connections of the cable screens are of major concern. A model is developed for modelling overvoltages from transient signal propagation through a combined cross-bonding cable and box....

This paper evaluates, for a 2030 scenario, the impact on onshore power systems in terms of the variability of the power generated by 81 GW of offshore wind farms installed in the North Sea. Meso-scale reanalysis data are used as input for computing the hourly power production for offshore wind farms, and this total production is analyzed to...

Offshore wind farms with high installed capacities and located further from the shore are starting to be built by northern European countries. Furthermore, it is expected that by 2020, several dozens of large offshore wind farms will be built in the Baltic, Irish and North seas. These wind farms will be constituted of a considerable number of...

The scattering cross-section of a plasmonic nanoparticle is proportional to the intensity of the electric field that drives the plasmon resonance. In this work we determine the driving field pattern throughout a complete thin-film silicon solar cell. Our simulations reveal that by tuning of the thicknesses of silicon and transparent conductive...

The growing energy consumption of lighting as well as rising luminous efficacies and -fluxes of high-power Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) have contributed to the widespread use of LEDs in modern lighting systems. One of the most prominent users of the LED-technology is automotive (exterior) lighting. It benefits from LEDs’ high efficiencies and...
