Estimating Potential Photovoltaic Yield with r.sun and the Open Source Geographical Resources Analysis Support System
The package r.sun within the open source Geographical Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS) can be used to compute insolation including temporal and spatial variation of albedo and solar photovoltaic yield. A complete ...
Quantifying Solar Photovoltaic Potential on a Large Scale for Renewable Energy Regional Policy
Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology has matured to become a technically viable large-scale source of sustainable energy. Understanding the rooftop PV potential is critical for utility planning, accommodating grid capacity, ...
Dispatch Strategy and Model for Hybrid Photovoltaic and Combined Heating, Cooling, and Power Systems
The advent of small scale combined heat and power (CHP) systems has provided the opportunity for in-house power backup of residential-scale photovoltaic (PV) arrays. These hybrid systems enjoy a symbiotic relationship ...
Optimization of Open-Circuit Voltage in Amorphous Silicon Solar Cells with Mixed Phase (Amorphous + Nanocrystalline) p-Type Contacts of Low Nanocrystalline Content
Both the origins of the high open circuit voltages ͑VOC͒ in amorphous silicon solar cells having p layers prepared with very high hydrogen dilution and the physical structure of these optimum p layers remain poorly understood ...
A Review of Solar Photovoltaic Levelized Cost of Electricity
As the solar photovoltaic (PV) matures, the economic feasibility of PV projects are increasingly being evaluated using the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) generation in order to be compared to other electricity ...
