This thesis presents a techno-economic analysis of integrating Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) and Solid Oxide Electrolysis (SOE) technologies for the production of hydrogen. The study begins with the development of system-level 0D models for CSP and SOE individually. These models are then combined to create a unified model for CSP-SOE...

Investigating supercritical natural fluids for efficient and clean energy production has become a trending research topic due to their technical and environmental advantages. However, on account of the supercritical operational conditions, using specially-developed components increases manufacturing prices, especially when dealing with solar...

Oil palm empty fruit bunch (OPEFB) is an abundant waste that is commonly incinerated, causing environmental pollution. In this study, an alternative waste management approach was investigated to produce value-added syngas from OPEFB using solar steam gasification. The three operating variables were temperature (1100–1300 °C), H<sub>2</sub>O...

Concentrator Photovoltaics (CPV) employs optical elements such as mirrors to focus solar flux to a small target area with a photovoltaic (PV) receiver. CPV system design is hindered by the fact that there is no standardised workhorse model to accurately evaluate CPV topologies. The spectral irradiance standards - the backbone of PV system...

In the past decades, fossil fuels have become an increasing concern, due them being a non-renewable energy source and due to the environmental concerns related to the production and use of this fuel. This has led to increasingly more research in the value of bio-sourced lignocellulosic biomass such as Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) fibres from the palm...

Glass is one of the most remarkable building material in modern architecture. It has become more and more valued as a major construction material. It does not only provide continuous transparency but it can be applied as a main structural element due to its high load-bearing capacity. The structural system has already been realized in several...

Concentrated solar technologies have been successfully used to collect solar irradiance and transform it into useful heat for electricity generation. A problem in these systems is often that a mismatch between input and output is present due to variable solar irradiance and energy demand. To compensate for this mismatch storage is utilized to...

Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) is considered as a working fluid in future Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) applications<br/>to increase the efficiency of the power cycle. Due to the limited experience, the turbine of an sCO2 power cycle is in literature referred to as the component with the highest risk. In this thesis, a design methodology will be...

A solar powered micro gas turbine is a new technique which is currently under development. Although promising, a turbocharger as replacement for a micro gas turbine could provide a simple, compact and low cost alternative. Therefore this research focusses on the energetic and technical performance expectations of a turbocharger based solar micro...
