  • A study of limiting energy and temperature characteristics of photovoltaic
           solar radiation converters
    • Authors: V. M. Evdokimov; V. A. Maiorov
      Pages: 1 - 9
      Abstract: Abstract Photovoltaic and thermal characteristics of a photovoltaic converter are studied. The power losses in photovoltaic conversion and the optimal power, current, and voltage and efficiency limit of the converter are determined. A theoretical model is presented for calculating the photoinduced current, reverse saturation current density, diffusion factor, lifetime, and current–voltage characteristic (CVC). The limiting idle voltage, efficiency, and CVC filling factor are determined for various temperatures.

    • Authors: R. R. Kobulov; S. Yu. Gerasimenko; M. A. Maxmudov
      Pages: 10 - 12
      Abstract: Abstract For the first time fabricated and investigated the photovoltaic characteristics of Au-Zn x Cd1–x S-Mofilm structural injection photo detectors sensitive to narrow the ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum, based on polycrystalline Zn x Cd1–x S layers. It was found by adjusting the flow of ZnS and CdS coming to the surface Mo substrate can control the shape of the spectral sensitivity of the Au-Zn x Cd1–x S-Mo-film structural injection photo detectors. The results will allow to optimize the structure of photo detectors and solar cells based on polycrystalline thin film solar cells.

    • Authors: A. Yu. Leiderman; A. S. Saidov; A. B. Karshiev
      Pages: 13 - 15
      Abstract: Abstract The thermoelectric effect, i.e., appearance of thermally stimulated current and voltage during uniform heating in a temperature range from 30 to 250°C, is studied. It is shown that greatest values of the current and voltage appear when maximum band gap difference is observed.

  • Increase in dependability and efficiency of self-draining water systems of
           solar heat supply
    • Authors: Yu. K. Rashidov; Sh. Yu. Sultanova; Kh. T. Sur’atov
      Pages: 16 - 22
      Abstract: Abstract It is shown in the paper that the reliability and efficiency of self-draining systems of the drainback syphon type depend on the atmospheric pressure and heating temperature of the heat carrier in the solar collectors, which affect the value of the allowable drop of the atmospheric pressure in the upper point of the system after it is filled with the heat carrier and achieves the specified heat operation mode. In such systems, the drop of the atmospheric pressure and growth of the heating temperature of the heat carrier lead to an increase in the power consumption for the heat carrier circulation owing to the interruption of the jet in the syphon because of boiling of the heat carrier. An improved structure of the self-draining solar circuit with an active element in the form of a Venturi tube was developed in which there are no such drawbacks under atmospheric pressure, and as compared to the common self-draining system of the drainback syphon type, the power consumption for the heat carrier circulation is reduced to 65–80%. The calculated dependences are given to define the necessary degree of the flow contraction in the Venturi tube and its resistance coefficients.

      Abstract: Abstract Studies of monocrystalline and polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic modules under environmental conditions of Tashkent were carried out. A decrease in the power of mono-PVM and poly-PVM was revealed, which in the summer period was 30 and 28% respectively. It was shown that, under otherwise equal conditions, the average temperature T t of the poly-PVM appeared to be 2°C lower than T t of the mono-PVM. In this case, both PVM types had average efficiency values of ~13.3%. It was found that the productivity factor of the studied poly-PVM and mono-PVM under environmental conditions of Tashkent was 0.75 and 0.77, respectively.

  • Investigation of the effect of short term environmental contamination on
           energy production in photovoltaic panels: Dicle University solar power
           plant example
    • Authors: Cem Haydaroğlu; Bilal Gümüş
      Pages: 31 - 34
      Abstract: Abstract Solar power is an unlimited source of power in theory when compared to the needs of the planet, however, in practice it is still a source of power convertible to electrical energy on a limited basis. In this context, efficiency of this energy conversion by photovoltaic panels has a great importance. Panel surface taking a sufficient amount of light at the right angle has a direct effect on efficiency. This is related to keeping the panel surface as clear as possible of dust and similar objects which can be reflective and absorptive. The contamination of photovoltaic panels has a negative effect on the energy production of panels. In this study, the effect of panel surface contamination, one of the most important factors affecting panel efficiency, was investigated. The investigation was conducted by comparing data from two panel strings standing very close to each other in a plant, one of which was cleaned regularly and the other left contaminated.

      Pages: 35 - 38
      Abstract: Abstract The inverters and modules are main components of solar power plants. If any one of them is failure, result will affect the production of electricity. Through the literatures survey, it is found that the inverter among the lots of parts of the solar power plant occupy the largest portion of the fault, and the failure and malfunction of the inverter are caused by the conductive surges induced through the power system. Based on these results, authors analyzed power disturbance factors and results were compared with IEC international standards. Finally, some practical measures applicable in designing and construction grid tied PV power plant in Uzbekistan were suggested.

  • Nontracking solar concentrators with louvered heliostats: A calculation
    • Authors: D. S. Strebkov; A. E. Irodionov; N. S. Filippchenkova
      Pages: 39 - 44
      Abstract: Abstract An algorithm for calculating the solar radiation flux on the receiving surface of a nontracking parabolic trough concentrator with a louvered heliostat is presented. Cylindrical geometry of the concentrator and shape and arrangement of mirror lamellae of the heliostat make it possible to consider sunlight passage across the mirror system of the module as a whole band, which significantly increases the computational efficiency of the algorithm proposed.

    • Authors: H. Ait Lahoussine Ouali; R. Guechchati; M. A. Moussaoui; A. Mezrhab
      Pages: 45 - 52
      Abstract: Abstract A numerical simulation of Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plant based on an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) power generation unit integrated with parabolic trough collectors is carried out. For the study we refer to the Solar Electric Generating System VI (SEGS VI), installed in the Mojave desert-California (USA), whose solar field which is constituted by LS2 parabolic trough collectors and we consider the same plant implementation in the region of Oujda city (Morocco). To predict the energy performance, the simulations are carried out using TRNSYS 16 simulation program known for its modularity and flexibility and the external library known as the Solar Thermal Electric Components (STEC) library. The meteorological parameters including Direct Normal Irradiation (DNI), ambient temperature and other weather conditions are taken from meteorological year database provided by a high precision MHP station located in Mohamed Premier University. The obtained results show that the region of East offers great potential in general for implementing this type of plant. In fact, the value of 30 MWe is reached during the strongest sunshine day and the operating time can go from 7 AM until 19 PM for a summer day.

  • Algorithm to account for nonverticality of the azimuthal axis of the
           concentrator in program tracking of the Sun
    • Authors: S. A. Orlov
      Pages: 53 - 56
      Abstract: Abstract Powerful solar stations of tower and modular types include from hundreds to thousands of concentrators and heliostats; thus, there occurs the problem of their control and maintaining the rotations of the concentrator following the apparent motion of the Sun. The optical tracking systems (TS) perform the task of tracking, but maintaining them requires wired or wireless connection with the control panel. The necessity of such a connection makes it possible to consider the problem of program tracking. Unlike optical TS, the accuracy of program tracking is affected by a number of factors, in particular, by nonverticality of the azimuthal axis of the concentrator. Therefore, the program tracking algorithm should include a block that takes into account and compensates for the nonverticality of the azimuthal axis. We have obtained a system of equations that forms the algorithm to account for the nonverticality of the azimuthal axis of the concentrators and estimated the influence of these inaccuracies. It has been shown that an increase in the Sun’s altitude (height) significantly influences the azimuthal angles on axes of rotation, while zenithal corrections are within the range of inaccuracies of the azimuthal axis alignment.

  • Cooling cogeneration cycle
    • Authors: R. Shankar; T. Srinivas
      Pages: 61 - 71
      Abstract: Abstract The existed combined power and cooling cycle operates with ammonia–water mixture as working fluid having low cooling due to the vapor at the inlet of evaporator. It also demands high ammonia concentration at turbine inlet to get cooling and suitable only at low sink temperature (10–12°C). A new cooling cogeneration cycle has been proposed and solved to generate more cooling with adequate power generation from single source of heat with two options in working fluids i.e. ammonia–water mixture and LiBr–water mixture. The results show that an increase in cycle maximum temperature is only supporting the power but not the cooling. A suitable range for separator temperature has been developed and optimized to maximize the total output. From this study, the resulted specific power, specific cooling, cycle power efficiency, cycle coefficient of performance (COP) and cycle energy utilization factor (EUF), plant EUF, and specific area of solar collector are 0.008 kW/m2, 0.11 kW/m2, 2%, 0.28, 0.3, 0.13 and 8 m2/kW for ammonia–water cycle and 0.04 kW/m2, 0.3 kW/m2, 9.5%, 0.7, 0.8, 0.37 and 3 m2/kW for LiBr–water mixture plant respectively.

      Abstract: Abstract In the current paper presented short review of the state of the art of solar powered reverse osmosis (RO) desalination systems, basic parameters, energy demand of RO process and also exergy analysis. In order to identify the main energy losses in desalination processes, to improve their performances from a thermodynamic point of view, there is a need for exergy analysis. The exergy analysis or second law analysis involves a comparison of exergy input and exergy destruction along various desalination processes. Using the exergy analysis methodology, presented in the current paper, the specific exergy and exergy flow rates at various points of a RO system can be evaluated. Once exergy flow rates are available, exergy destroyed within any component can be determined from exergy balance.

           photovoltaic performance in dye-sensitized solar cell
    • Authors: Shalin; Shailendra Kumar Shukla
      Pages: 309 - 314
      Abstract: Abstract In the present work, sol–gel method is used to synthesize TiO2 nanoparticle. The characterization of the prepared TiO2 powder is done using Powder X-ray diffraction (powder XRD), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Energy-Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDS) and Ultraviolet-Visible Spectrophotometry (UV-Vis). The XRD pattern reveals formation of anatase phase TiO2. The SEM images reveal agglomeration of nanoparticles. The absorbance spectrum of TiO2 nanoparticles was observed with excitonic peaks at 327 nm and the band gap came out to be ~3.2 eV. This prepared TiO2 was tested for photovoltaic performance by using it in the Dye sensitized solar cell (FTO/TiO2/N719/KI-I2/Pt). Conversion of solar light energy to electricity was successfully done using this TiO2. The fabricated cell showed an open-circuit voltage (V OC) of 587 mV and short-circuit current density (J SC) of 5.06 mA/cm2. Maximum power (P max) generated was 1.912 mW/cm2 with a fill factor (FF) of 0.644 and a conversion efficiency of 1.91%.

      Pages: 315 - 320
      Abstract: Abstract The effect of blade number on performance of drag type vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) is studied by Ansys numerical simulation, it involves 3-blade, 5-blade and 6-blade VAWTs. The optimized width of blade for each VAWT at maximum power efficiency is obtained, and simulation for the wind turbine with different number of blade is conducted for the VAWTs with turbine radius of 2 m at the inlet wind speed 8 m/s. By simulations, it gets the evolution curve of torque with respect to time, and the cyclical characteristics for these wind turbines. The results show that the maximum power efficiency and the stability of the wind turbine increase with the number of blade of the wind turbine, however the optimal d/D decreases with the number of blade of the wind turbine. The maximum power efficiencies are 20.44, 24.30 and 26.82% for 3-blade, 5-blade and 6-blade wind turbines, and the correspondingly optimal d/D are 0.66, 0.40 and 0.35, respectively. While the optimal rotational rate of turbine decreases with blade number.
