Solar PV systems have so far been the source of choice for the sustainable supply of urban electric transport networks—like trams and trolleybus grids. However, no consensus exists yet on the placement or sizing of PV systems at the traction substations, and no method is available for easy estimation of the PV system utilization performance....

The traction substations of urban electric transport grids are oversized and underutilized in terms of their capacity. While their over-sizing is an unfortunate waste, their under-utilization creates the major hurdle for the integration of renewables into these grids due to the lack of a base load. Therefore, integrating smart grid loads such...

Future energy systems are expected to rely increasingly more on distributed energy resources (DER). Prosumers that own energy resources such as photovoltaic (PV) generation and energy storage systems, will play a crucial role in the realization of DER’s in future power systems. Limited grid connections due to local electricity congestion make it...

Battery electric vehicles have gained a substantial market share in the last few years. The call for good charging infrastructure is urgent with the rapid shift from carbon-based cars toward battery electric vehicles. However, the present electrical distribution networks are not designed for large additional loads. Many cities have traction...

Trolleybuses are electric buses than run on electric power from overhead electric power lines (catenary) like trams do. Although is a service that dates all the way back to 1882, it has managed to regain interest in the recent years due to the constant electrification of various aspects of the world. This comes as a response towards...

To complete the energy transition, a high efficiency for photovoltaic (PV) modules is desirable to reduce the needed material and surface area (per unit of generated electrical energy). The tandem PV technology has the potential to increase the efficiency of PV modules over 30%. In order to design efficient solar cells, a quantification of the...

In this thesis, a new photovoltaic fault detection and classification method is proposed. It combines the generation of a synthetic photovoltaic training database and the use of a machine learning model to detect and classify faults in small-scale residential PV systems. The database was generated in Matlab, and the machine learning modeling was...

In this paper, a Reinforcement Learning (RL)-based approach to optimally dispatch PV inverters in unbalanced distribution systems is presented. The proposed approach exploits a decentralized architecture in which PV inverters are operated by agents that perform all computational processes locally; while communicating with a central agent to...

We introduce a novel simulation tool capable of calculating the energy yield of a PV system based on its fundamental material properties and using self-consistent models. Thus, our simulation model can operate without measurements of a PV device. It combines wave and ray optics and a dedicated semiconductor simulation to model the...

Solar array fed water pumping system is a good approach for water management and agriculture purpose. PV panels highly depend on unpredictable environmental conditions, as a result, the development of a PV system is with more technical challenges. System-level simulation on a desktop computer has limitations, such as uncertain accuracy of the...

PV systems in urban environments frequently get shaded by nearby objects, which greatly reduces their yield. A potential solution for such situations is the use of reconfigurable PV modules. They are a type of modules which can reconfigure themselves under varying illumination conditions to ensure optimum yield at all times. The individual PV...
