  1. 1. Energy Analysis of the Closed Greenhouse Concept Towards a Sustainable Energy Pathway

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Amir Vadiee; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal energy storage; closed greenhouse; energy analysis; energy management; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : The closed greenhouse is an innovative concept in sustainable energy management. The closed greenhouse can be considered as a large commercial solar building. In principle, it is designed to maximize the utilization of solar energy through seasonal storage. In a fully closed greenhouse, there are not any ventilation windows. READ MORE

  2. 2. Increasing Energy Efficiency in Electric Trains Operation : Driver Advisory Systems and Energy Storage

    University dissertation from Västerås : Mälardalen University

    Author : Nima Ghaviha; Mälardalens högskola.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Driver Advisory System; Catenary-free Operation; Electric Train; Electric Multiple Unit; Battery; Energy Efficiency; Energy Storage; Speed Profile Optimization; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Electric traction is the most efficient traction system in the railway transportation. However, due to the expensive infrastructure and high power demand from the grid, the share of electric trains in the railway transportation is still lower than other trains. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy Management in Large scale Solar Buildings The Closed Greenhouse Concept

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Amir Vadiee; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermal Energy Storage; Energy Saving; Thermoeconomic Assessment; Energy Management Scenario; Micro Climate Control; Solar Building; Closed Greenhouse; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : Sustainability has been at the centre of global attention for decades. One of the most challenging areas toward sustainability is the agricultural sector. Here, the commercial greenhouse is one of the most effective cultivation methods with a yield per cultivated area up to 10 times higher than for open land farming. READ MORE

  4. 4. Improved Self-Consumption of Photovoltaic Electricity in Buildings Storage, Curtailment and Grid Simulations

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper

    Author : Rasmus Luthander; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Photovoltaics; Solar energy; Self-consumption; Grid integration; Distributed generation; Energy storage; Curtailment; Power system; Engineering Science with specialization in Solid State Physics; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : The global market for photovoltaics (PV) has increased rapidly: during 2014, 44 times more was installed than in 2004, partly due to a price reduction of 60-70% during the same time period. Economic support schemes that were needed to make PV competitive on the electricity market have gradually decreased and self-consumption of PV electricity is becoming more interesting internationally from an economic perspective.

  5. 5. Phase Equilibrium-aided Design of Phase Change Materials from Blends For Thermal Energy Storage

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Saman Nimali Gunasekara; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal energy storage TES ; phase change material PCM ; phase diagram; congruent melting; compound; solid solution; eutectic; peritectic; Energiteknik; Energy Technology; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Climate change is no longer imminent but eminent. To combat climate change, effective, efficient and smart energy use is imperative. Thermal energy storage (TES) with phase change materials (PCMs) is one attractive choice to realize this. READ MORE
