  1. 1. Dynamics of Energy Systems - Methods of analysing technology change

    University dissertation from Environmental and Energy Systems Studies, Lund university

    Author : Lena Neij; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1999]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; evaluation; Energy research; market transformation; PV modules; wind power; experience curves; air-distribution; lighting; vintage models; sustainable energy; renewable energy; energy efficiency; Energy; energy system; Energiforskning; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Abstract : Technology change will have a central role in achieving a sustainable energy system. This calls for methods of analysing the dynamics of energy systems in view of technology change and policy instruments for effecting and accelerating technology change. In this thesis, such methods have been developed, applied, and assessed. READ MORE

  2. 2. The role of Swedish single-family dwellings in the electricity system - The importance and impacts of solar photovoltaics, demand response, and energy storage

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Emil Nyholm; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Demand side management; Electricity system models; Electric space heating; Solar photovoltaics; Distributed generation; Demand response; Single-family dwellings; Optimization; Batteries;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the role Swedish single-family dwellings can play in the electricity system. Both through becoming electricity producers through the use of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, and the possibilities of demand response (DR) and energy storage in combination with this, and through the DR of electric space heating in the dwellings.

  3. 3. Large Scale Solar Power Integration in Distribution Grids PV Modelling, Voltage Support and Aggregation Studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Afshin Samadi; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Photovoltaic systems; PV system modelling; reactive power control; droop control; voltage sensitivity analysis; German Grid Codes; relative gain array RGA ; singular value decomposition SVD ; load modeling; system identification; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Long term supporting schemes for photovoltaic (PV) system installation have led to accommodating large numbers of PV systems within load pockets in distribution grids. High penetrations of PV systems can cause new technical challenges, such as voltage rise due to reverse power flow during light load and high PV generation conditions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Solar energy for a brighter life. A case study of rural electrification through solar photovoltaic technology in the Eastern Province, Zambia

    University dissertation from Göteborg University

    Author : Mathias Gustavsson; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Miljöteknik; Environmental engineering; Teknik och social förändring; Technology and social change; rural development; rural electrification; distributed generation; photovoltaic technology; solar home system; energy services; Zambia; Sub Saharan Africa;

    Abstract : Electricity is taken for granted in many parts of the world. In Sub-Saharan Africa, typically less than 5% of the rural population have access to this energy source. Even though electricity in itself does not lead to development, it can support a development process. READ MORE

  5. 5. Efficient Integration of Distributed Generation in Electricity Distribution Networks - Voltage Control and Network Design

    University dissertation from Göteborg University

    Author : Ingmar Leisse; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Distributed Generation; Coordinated Voltage Control; Electricity meter; PV; Wind Power; Distribution Network;

    Abstract : Distributed generation (DG), i.e. generation connected to the low and medium voltage distribution network (DN), has been increasing a lot during recent years. Thus the traditional assumption of a unidirectional power flow and a voltage decrease along the distribution feeders is no longer valid in all operation conditions. READ MORE
