  1. 1. Demand Side Response : Exploring How and Why Users Respond to Signals Aimed at Incentivizing a Shift of Electricity Use in Time

    Author : Isak Öhrlund; Cajsa Bartusch; Peter Juslin; Mikael Larsson; Jacopo Torriti; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Demand response; Electricity use flexibility; Time-varying rate; Dynamic pricing; Price-based program; Time-of-use; Demand charge; Real-time pricing; Real-time feedback; Prosumer; Non-price signal; Non-price incentive; Engineering Science with specialization in industrial engineering and management; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot industriell teknik;

    Abstract : With increased weather-dependent electricity production and electrification at the heart of the ongoing transition away from fossil fuels, peaks in electricity demand are set to increase and become increasingly difficult to meet, which threatens the functioning of the electric power systems that our society depends on. Time-varying electricity rates, which aim to incentivize electricity users to shift their electricity use in time, have been proposed as a key instrument in alleviating grid imbalances and bottlenecks.

  2. 2. Charge and Energy Noise from On-demand Electron Sources

    Author : Nastaran Dashti; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Boltzmann-Langevin approach.; fluctua- tions and noise; single-electron source; energy and heat currents; time-dependently driven mesoscopic capaci- tor; charge current; Floquet scattering theory;

    Abstract : On-demand single electron sources (SES) are of key importance for future electronic applications such as metrology or quantum optics with electron. They allow for achieving a controlled, low-fluctuations flow of particles in a coherent mesoscopic conductor. READ MORE

  3. 3. Active High Voltage Insulation - A New Hybrid Insulation Concept with Dynamic and Active Features

    Author : Jörgen Blennow; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : high voltage; surface charge; dielectric coating; charge accumulation; insulation; breakdown strength; covered electrodes; air-gap; dielectric barrier discharges;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the concept of a new environmental-friendly and high-performance high voltage insulation is presented. Basically, it is an electric field steering technique where the dynamic process of charge accumulation, actively and advantageously, re-distributes the electric field within an insulation system.

  4. 4. Experimental Investigation of Refrigerant Charge Minimisation of a Small Capacity Heat Pump

    Author : W. Primal D. Fernando; Björn Palm; Alberto Gavallini; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; heat pump; propane; low-charge; Wilson plot method; minichannels; aluminium heat exhangers; single.phase flow; Mechanical and thermal engineering; Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : Enormous quantities of heat are available in air, soil, water, exhaust air from buildings, and in waste water of any kind. However these heat sources are use-less for heating purposes since their temperatures are lower than the tempera-ture required for heating. READ MORE

  5. 5. Charge Carrier Dynamics in Novel Solar Materials : Ultrafast Spectroelectrochemistry

    Author : Alireza Honarfar; Kemisk fysik; []

    Abstract : The constant increase in global energy demand makes it inevitable to find clean means of energy production. Among renewable energy sources, the Sun is the most available source which makes it a versatile solution for energy needs. Tremendous efforts are made to invent and develop new materials for light to energy conversion. READ MORE
