Offshore wind is considered a vital component of the future large scale renewable generation portfolio. Intense R&D effort is occurring in both the technology and the supply chain aiming at cost reduction. The drivetrain of wind turbines is an area of continuous evolution with currently no one standard configuration in the industry. It is...

Although, only in recent years, northern European countries started to install large offshore wind farms, it is expected that by 2020, several dozens of far and large offshore wind farms (FLOWFs) will be built. These FLOWFs will be constituted of a considerable amount of wind turbines (WTs) packed together, leading to an energy density increase....

Photovoltaic energy is one of the key components of a sustainable energy future. While the market is currently dominated by crystalline silicon solar modules, thin-film silicon technology holds the promise of a cheap, resource-efficient and versatile alternative. The major drawback of thin-film silicon PV is its relatively low conversion...

Building-integrated photovoltaic systems (BIPV) are able to improve the energy balance of buildings. However, this improvement can be analyzed quantitatively only if the electricity yield generated by the BIPV system is calculated. This PhD thesis presents a simulation program that calculates the electricity yield generated by BIPV systems,...

The increasing global energy needs and the high integration of renewable energy generation have changed the requirements for the electricity grid. Countries are becoming unable to cover their energy demands with their own means and the need for power exchange between neighboring countries has increased. Consequently, power needs to be...

In recent years, high penetration of distributed generation (DG) driven by PV panels and heavy load insertion in the distribution network has led to frequent voltage fluctuations in the form of undervoltage and overvoltage. Voltage control using traditional voltage regulators are unable to cope with this situation as frequent tap changes reduce...

Large transient overvoltages are normally caused by vacuum circuit breaker (VCB) switching operation during disconnection of induction motors. In this paper VCBs, cables, generators, busbars, induction motors and surge arresters are modeled by making use of ATP-EMTP. Switching transient overvoltages of four typical induction motors are analyzed...

This paper presents a fault location algorithm that can be used to accurately locate the fault at any place along mixed line-cable transmission corridors. The algorithm is an impedance based line/cable parameter dependent algorithm. The fault location algorithm is derived using distributed line model, modal transformation theory and Discrete...

Transmission of electric energy at high voltage levels is mainly performed by overhead lines. Nowadays, an increasing amount of power grid operators are replacing overhead transmission lines by underground cables. Cable presence in power systems may have consequences for the behavior of the total system, since cables have much larger capacitance...

We study n-i-p amorphous silicon solar cells with light-scattering nanoparticles in the back reflector. In one configuration, the particles are fully embedded in the zinc oxide buffer layer; In a second configuration, the particles are placed between the buffer layer and the flat back electrode. We use stencil lithography to produce the same...

Modern transmission power networks consist mainly of High Voltage overhead lines, since the later have proven their high operational reliability. However, technological developments have made it possible to use High Voltage cables, not only in the distribution grids, but also at higher transmission voltage levels. Thus, more mixed configurations...

The thesis presents a detailed design of 1.5kW induction cooker capable of heating all types of metals employed in the everyday cooking vessels. The design is based on newly developed control approach for resonant LLC DC-DC converters by NXP Semiconductors. The approach reduces the close loop transfer function of resonant converter to first...

During the last 50 years electricity demand has significantly increased. Large amounts of electricity are transported from the generation to the consumption sites. Overhead lines or underground cables are used to transport the required energy. High voltage levels are used to reduce the transmission losses. Power transformers are responsible for...

Fan, X. (author)
In a traditional AC distribution system, the synchronous frequencies of the generators are coupled with the system frequency, and thus the diesel engines are kept at a constant speed. In a Dynamic Positioning (DP) vessel such as a Platform Supply Vessel (PSV), the diesel engines sometimes work at the partial load condition. The efficiency of...

Service interruptions have a significant impact on society and therefore the main objective of power system planning and operation is to ensure that they do not happen. Because voltage instability is one of the dynamic phenomena that may result in a system-wide blackout, this type of stability problem has been an important research topic for...

Thin-film silicon solar cells (TFSSC), which can be manufactured from abundant materials solely, contain nano-textured interfaces that scatter the incident light. We present an approximate very fast algorithm that allows optimizing the surface morphology of two-dimensional nano-textured interfaces. Optimized nano-textures scatter the light...

We show experimentally that the photocurrent of thin-film hydrogenated microcrystalline silicon (?c-Si:H) solar cells can be enhanced by 4.5?mA/cm2 with a plasmonic back reflector (BR). The light trapping performance is improved using plasmonic BR with broader angular scattering and lower parasitic absorption loss through tuning the size of...

We demonstrate a method for synthesizing free standing silicon nanocrystals in an argon/silane gas mixture by using a remote expanding thermal plasma. Transmission electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy measurements reveal that the distribution has a bimodal shape consisting of two distinct groups of small and large silicon nanocrystals with...
