  1. 1. Solution-Chemically Derived Spectrally Selective Solar Absorbers With System Perspectives on Solar Heating

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tobias Boström; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Materials science; solar; thermal; absorber; selective; chemical; Materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of two parts, one dominating part concerning spectrally selective solar absorbers and one dealing with thermal solar systems. The appended papers I to VIII concern the solar absorber part, papers dealing with the systems part have not been included in the thesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Domestic Heating with Solar Thermal Studies of Technology in a Social Context and Social Components in Technical Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Magdalena Lundh; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; solar heating; solar energy; heating system; social components; market actors; interdisciplinary; heat storage; system solution; energy system; hot water; load profiles; socio-technical; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik; teknisk fysik med inriktningen mikrosystemteknik; engineering science with specialization in microsystems technology;

    Abstract : Research in solar heating has traditionally focused solely on increasing the system efficiency by improving the technical components. In this thesis the technical methodology and system boundaries are widened to connect the technical aspects with market actors that are highly influential on the implementation of solar technology.

  3. 3. Solar Thermal Collectors at High Latitudes Design and performance of non-tracking concentrators

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Monika Adsten; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials science; Solar thermal collectors; concentrators; CPC; high latitudes; Materialvetenskap; Solfångare; koncentratorer; höga latituder; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap; Solid State Physics; fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : Solar thermal collectors at high latitudes have been studied, with emphasis on concentrating collectors. A novel design of concentrating collector, the Maximum Reflector Collector (MaReCo), especially designed for high latitudes, has been investigated optically and thermally. READ MORE

  4. 4. Planning for Solar Buildings in Urban Environments

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Jouri Kanters; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; architecture; design tool; design process; solar energy; urban planning; photovoltaics; solar thermal; building integration; density; net zero energy buildings; interviews; parametric studies; action research;

    Abstract : Energy use in buildings accounts for a significant proportion of the total energy use in many countries. While past and current buildings have solely been energy consumers, future buildings will, besides using less energy, also need to produce (part of ) the required energy on site with renewables.

  5. 5. Solar heat pump systems for heating applications Analysis of system performance and possible solutions for improving system performance

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Stefano Poppi; KTH.; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energiteknik; Energy Technology; Solar heat pump systems; techno-economics; solar thermal; system improvements; cost-effectiveness; MacSheep; MacSheep;

    Abstract : Solar heat pump systems (SHPs) are systems that combine solar energy and heat pumps. SHPs have been investigated for several decades and have been proven to increase the share of renewable energy and reduce electric energy demand in residential heating applications. READ MORE
