This paper provides the convex hull description for the basic operation of slow- and quick-start units in power-based unit commitment (UC) problems. The basic operating constraints that are modeled for both types of units are (1) generation limits and (2) minimum up and down times. Apart from this, the startup and shutdown processes are also...

Starter/generator units based on PM machines are generally not considered due to their inherent safety risks. This technology can, however, prove advantageous for aerospace applications where mass, volume, efficiency and low maintenance costs play a significant role. A safety analysis is performed in order to identify the safety and mitigation...

In this study, epoxy-cubic boron nitride composites are fabricated, and their dielectric response is investigated. They exhibit the same trend as epoxy composites reinforced with other filler types. Thus, at low filler concentrations, they exhibit a lower relative permittivity than neat epoxy. As the fill grade further increases, the relative...

This paper introduces an approach based on the Swarm Variant of the Mean-Variance Mapping Optimization (MVMO-S) to solve the multi-scenario formulation of the optimal placement and coordinated tuning of power system supplementary damping controllers (POCDCs). The effectiveness of the approach is evaluated based on the classical IEEE 39-bus (New...

Since the first report on the fabrication of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) in 1965, this material has found many applications, for instance in the fabrication of solar cells, sensors and transistors. An especially notable example in the context of this thesis is thin-film silicon solar cells, which have attracted a lot of attention....

It has been predicted that due to the population growth the energy demand is increasing faster and faster. It has been well recognized that depleting fossil-fuel resources will not fulfill the energy need of the future world. Not to mention the problem of global warming caused by its combustion, and of energy security as a result of geopolitical...

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....
