  • Design and Optimization of Amorphous Based on Highly Efficient HIT Solar
    • Authors: P. Sathya; R. Natarajan
      Pages: 77 - 84
      Abstract: Abstract The objective of this paper is to improve the power conversion efficiency of HIT solar cell using amorphous materials. A high efficiency amorphous material based on two dimensional heterojunction solar cell with thin intrinsic layer is designed and simulated at the research level using Synopsys/RSOFT-Solar Cell utility. The HIT structure composed of TCO/a-Si:H(p)/a-Si:H(i)/c-Si(n)/a-Si:H(i)/a-Si:H(n+)/Ag is created by using of RSOFT CAD. Optical characterization of the cell is performed by Diffract MOD model based on RCWA (rigorous coupled wave analysis) algorithm. Electrical characterization of the cell is done by Solar cell utility using based on Ideal diode method. In addition, optimization of the different layer thickness in the HIT structure is executed to improve the absorption and thereby the photocurrent density. The proposed HIT solar cell structure resulted in an open circuit voltage of 0.751 V, a short circuit current density of 36.37 mA/cm2 and fill factor of 85.37% contributing to the total power conversion efficiency of 25.91% under AM1.5G. Simulation results showed that the power conversion efficiency is improved by 1.21% as compared to the reference HIT solar cell. This improvement in high efficiency is due to reduction of resistive losses, recombination losses at the hetero junction interface between intrinsic a-Si and c-Si, and optimization of the thicknesses in a-Si and c-Si layers.

      Abstract: Abstract The surface morphology and photoelectric characteristics of a thin-film SnO2-CdS/Cu(InGa)Se2-Ag heterostructure have been studied. The chemical and phase composition of the Cu(InGa)Se2 film in the synthesized structure have been investigated. The current transfer mechanism has been studied, and the main parameters of the semiconductor material have been determined. It has been found that there are no oppositely connected barriers in the heterostructure.

  • Calculating the Hydrodynamic Characteristics of the Active Section of the
           Self-Draining Solar Loop of a Heating System
    • Authors: Yu. K. Rashidov
      Pages: 95 - 98
      Abstract: Abstract The article considers experimental studies of the hydrodynamic characteristics of the active section of the self-draining solar loop of a heating system. This element is designed as a flow constrictor referred to as Ventury tube, with a high degree of flow constriction of 2–5 in the region with strong viscous resistance. The experimental data are processed in a criteria form, the general type of which is obtained by dimensional technique and compared with data from other authors. The obtained criteria dependences can be used to calculate the hydrodynamic characteristics of the active section of the self-draining solar loop of a heating system.

  • Characteristic Features of the Energy Modes of a Large Solar Furnace with
           a Capacity of 1000 kW
    • Authors: R. Yu. Akbarov; M. S. Paizullakhanov
      Pages: 99 - 109
      Abstract: Abstract The possible energy characteristics of the LSF (large solar furnace with a capacity 1000 kW) based on numerical calculations are analyzed. The technical characteristics of the LSF are presented. The energy characteristics of the total system with different inaccuracies of the reflecting surfaces, energy contributions of certain shelves and groups of heliostats, and the contributions of certain heliostats and shapes of their focal spot are determined.

      Abstract: Abstract It presents a method to extract pure water from atmospheric air, which depends on intensifying the water vapor from the air. The plant was designed to perform the optimum levels to produce high quality water with minimal electricity consumption. The harvesting water was inspected and analyzed based on ISO/IEC 17025 method to check the purity of water. This study also investigates the potential of a solar powered using for atmospheric water generation (AWG) as a new option for fresh water production. A proposed solar AWG unit was assembled, analyzed and modeled using HOMER software. The results demonstrated that the water produced by the water extraction plant is pure, safe, economical, and acceptably tasting. It can be used as drinking water after treated by filter and disinfected by Ultra Violet Light (UV) technique. The feasibility analysis showed that there is a potential to adopt solar powered of AWG as strategic and alternative option for a small area; which is suffering from a shortage of drinking water.

      Abstract: Abstract Modern solar follow-up systems make it possible to increase a solar cell’s efficiency and, as a result, solar energy utilization. The paper considers modern solar follow-up methods and their operational principles. Trackers are separated onto uniaxial and biaxial according to the plane which tracking occurs. Biaxial trackers are the most efficient. The operational principles of active and passive trackers are studied. A laboratory model of a biaxial solar tracker with precise solar orientation is described, based on an algorithm for calculating the voltage with current sensors. The following are given in the paper: the current–voltage characteristic obtained for different solar array positions and using trackers; the relationships between the power and measured currents and voltages. The efficiency is calculated for different solar array positions and using a tracker.

  • 10% Loss of Incident Power through Solar Reactor Window: Myth or Good Rule
           of Thumb'
    • Authors: V. Pozzobon
      Pages: 131 - 133
      Abstract: Abstract It is known that a solar beam crossing a window losses 10% of its incident power. Yet, this affirmation is not supported by many published scientific evidences. In this work, a heat flux mapping method was used to determine the heat flux distributions at the focal spot of a solar concentrating device without and with a window on the incident beams' trajectory. The presence of a window on the beams' trajectory induces a 12% loss of the total power and a 11% decrease of the peak heat flux density.

  • Performance of Cylindrical Parabolic Collector with Automated Tracking
    • Authors: K. Sridhar; G. Lingaiah; G. Vinod Kumar; S. Anil Kumar; G. Ramakrishna
      Pages: 134 - 138
      Abstract: Abstract Parabolic solar collector collects the radiant energy emitted from the sun and focuses it at a point. Parabolic trough collectors are the low cost implementation of concentrated solar power technology that focuses incident sun light on to a tube filled with a heat transfer fluid. However, the basic problem with the cylindrical parabolic collector without tracking was the solar collector does not move with the orientation of sun. Development of automatic tracking system for cylindrical parabolic collectors will increase solar collection as well as efficiency of devices. The main aim of this paper is to design, fabricate and analyze the performance of parabolic collector with automated tracking system. The automated tracking mechanism is used to receive the maximum possible energy of solar radiation as it tracks the path of sun. The performance of the parabolic trough collector is experimentally investigated with the water circulated as heat transfer fluid. The collector efficiency will be noted.

           Solar Energy
    • Authors: Yu. V. Daus; I. V. Yudaev; G. V. Stepanchuk
      Pages: 139 - 143
      Abstract: Abstract The use of a low-power solar network and standalone power plants is the most promising for the needs of the housing and utilities sector, small industrial enterprises, social and public health facilities, recreation areas, remote objects, and agricultural industries; this will make it possible to reduce the load on the energy system at peak moments, as well as to decrease losses when transporting electric energy in its elements. It is assumed that the minimum value of the unit cost of generated electric energy is used as the criterion for configuring and selecting the parameters of solar power equipment, which will make it possible to set up an economically feasible additional power supply to the consumer, since it excludes the use of storage devices and rearrangement of the power supply system.

    • Authors: Sandeep S. Joshi; Ashwinkumar S. Dhoble; Tushar Sathe; Chidanand Mangrulkar
      Pages: 4 - 9
      Abstract: Abstract The paper reports use of silicone oil as spectrum filter and heat absorber for photovoltaic thermal systems. The terrestrial solar spectrum is in the wavelength range of 0.25 to 2.5 μm. The response range of C-Si solar cell is 0.75 to 1.125 μm. In the current study, the feasibility of Silicone oil (Transformer oil) as spectrum filter cum heat absorber for C-Si solar cell is investigated. The spectroscopic analysis of 1 cm thick Silicone oil sample with UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometer is carried out. This analysis concludes that the Silicone oil is transparent to the response range of C-Si solar cell. Also, it shows a significant absorption for UV and IR part of the spectrum. A glass container with 1 cm thick Silicone oil layer is mounted on the C-Si PV module. The performance of the system is analyzed using solar simulator at irradiance of 1000 W/m2, AM 1.5 G and in natural sunlight at Nagpur (21.10 N, 79.090 E). The experiments were performed for the entire year for time period of one hour in the noon. With Silicone oil spectrum filter, the average electrical efficiency of the PV module was found increase marginally. However, for 10 W module, 27 W average heat gain was recorded. In this study, the surface area of PV module (30 × 35 cm = 0.105 m2) was very small. In actual practice, for large scale installations, significant heat gain is possible. The experimentation and significant outcomes are discussed in this article.

      Abstract: Abstract The results of investigations to determine the convective heat-exchange coefficient in the inner heat-exchange channels (HECs) of the light-absorbing heat-exchange panels (LAHPs) of flat-plate solar water-heating collectors (FPSWHCs) are given based on the results of their short-term heat testing in fullscale quasi-stationary conditions. The research method is based on determining the value of the required parameter from the heat-balance equation formed for the inner surfaces of the LAHP HEC walls. The structures of the flow LAHPs with a sheet-piped and thin parallelepiped form are selected as the test objects. The thermal tests of the FPSWHC are carried out during the near-midday hours of the light day to ensure the quasi-stationary mode condition. The reliability of the proposed method and results of the investigations is proved by comparing the values of the thermal-efficiency coefficients of the FPSWHC LAHPs obtained using two independent approaches.

  • ANSYS Fluent CFD Modeling of Solar Air-Heater Thermoaerodynamics
    • Authors: D. I. Pashchenko
      Pages: 32 - 39
      Abstract: Abstract Numerical modeling of thermal and aerodynamic processes taking place in a solar air heater with light-absorbing L-shaped fins is performed. The study is carried out by means of an ANSYS Fluent Solver with an integrated solar calculator for the city of Samara, Russia. The influence of the design (the step between the fins) and technological variables (the Reynolds number) on heat-exchange processes and flow aerodynamics was established during the CFD analysis. Pictorial contours are determined for the velocity distribution, pressure, and other characteristics of the airflow in the solar air-heater box. Thermoaerodynamic characteristics and effective values of technological parameters for the effective use of a solar air heater are studied. The maximum thermoaerodynamic characteristic for the solar air heater with a finned lightabsorbing surface is 1.91 for Re = 1500, and the minimum test fin pitch is 30 mm.

      Pages: 50 - 60
      Abstract: Abstract This paper presents an analysis of the modern state of studies of the thermophysical properties of nanofluids and the heat-transfer mechanism in them. The results of experimental studies of obtaining and determining the dynamic viscosity of the nanofluids (SiO2 + water) with various concentrations of nanoparticles are given. Nanofluids are obtained using a two-stage method in an ultrasonic field with a frequency of 20 kHz. It is shown that, in the SiO2 + water system, nanoparticles with sizes of 7, 12, and 16 nm are most stable. Various SiO2 concentrations in the volume range 0.5–5% were tested, and their thermophysical properties were studied for the purpose of using them as a heat-transfer medium in flat-plate solar collectors.

  • Compensation of Axis Errors of Azimuth and Zenith Moving Concentrators in
           Programmable Solar-Tracking Systems
    • Authors: S. A. Orlov; Sh. I. Klychev
      Pages: 61 - 64
      Abstract: Abstract The solar-energy industry is currently concerned with improving software systems of sun-tracking concentrators. It is a feature of programmable tracking that there is no feedback from the tracked object, unlike in the case of optical tracking. In this regard, the accuracy of programmable tracking is affected by a large number of factors—in particular, axis-alignment errors. An error-checking algorithm is considered for the azimuth and zenith concentrator axes in programmable sun tracking. Effects of these errors on the accuracy of programmable tracking are assessed. It is shown that zenith axis errors have the same amount of influence as the vertical deviation of the azimuth axis, primarily affecting the azimuth angle, while its influence on the solar elevation can be neglected. The cumulative effect of axial errors is most noticeable when they have the same signs and lie in the same plane.

      Pages: 65 - 70
      Abstract: Abstract The deficiency in the energy for the space cooling is overcome by solar energy. Still the input energy is minimized by integrating both power and cooling cycle in common platform, such as working fluid, component and working parameters. The aqua-ammonia is used in both power cycle and vapor cooling cycle. The generator is common for cycles for the production of ammonia vapor. The analyses are made to find out the operational parameters for the cooling cogeneration cycle with solar as source. The analyses are done for the proposed cycle with various atmosphere temperatures. At absorber concentration of 0.42 and turbine inlet concentration of 0.90, with solar collector exit temperature of 155°C and atmosphere temperature of 30°C the generated power and cooling are 21.88 and 215.79 kW, respectively. The power and cooling output range can alter by varying turbine inlet concentration and temperature.

  • Evaluating the Applicability of Data on Total Solar-Radiation Intensity
           Derived from Various Sources of Actinometric Information
    • Authors: Yu. V. Daus; V. V. Kharchenko
      Pages: 71 - 76
      Abstract: Abstract In designing generating solar-engineering devices, the first priority is the predesign study of the potential of local resources of solar energy at the places where they may be located. Currently, actinometric information is obtained in several ways. They include direct measurement of solar-radiation characteristics at meteorological stations or from satellites and analytical methods for calculating intensity of solar radiation. Despite the significant number of sources of actinometric information, it seems impossible to evaluate the potential of incoming solar energy in the region, to substantiate the composition and parameters of solar-power-plant equipment, and to predict its operation at the initial stage. Using the example of the town of Kamyshin in Volgograd oblast, the sufficiency of required actinometric information is analyzed for further solar-engineering calculations and the data accuracy and limits of their applicability are estimated.
