Monitoring and Modeling Hot Water Consumption in Hotels for Solar Thermal Water Heating System Optimization 2011 17058 In this study, hot water consumption was monitored at two hotels in Boone, North Carolina. A typical hot water profile was created for each hotel, and the profiles were then used to size a solar thermal water heating system for each of them. The sy...
A Direct Comparison between a Central Inverter and Microinverters in a Photovoltaic Array 2011 12356 Microinverters, successfully introduced to the market in 2008, have the potential to transform the PV landscape. They offer many advantages over central inverter topologies, including potentially increased power output compared to a central inverter....
Characterizing Electrical Output of Sanyo HIT 195 Bifacial Photovoltaic Modules By Altering Reflective Material Below the Lower Face Absorptive Cells 2012 4202 Bifacial photovoltaic modules offer potentially enhanced power output due to their reported ability to harvest reflected radiation increasing output up to an additional 30%. This enhancement has yet to be confirmed in the literature. Reflectivity ...
Determining the Accuracy of Solar Trackers 2013 9460 The experiment was measuring the tracker angles of the commercially available, non-algorithm based solar trackers. The results showed that the average accuracy of the azimuth angle of the Zomeworks UTR-020 is 75%, the average accuracy of the azimuth ...
An evaluation of the exchange of energy and value in net metering in North Carolina 2015 488 Net metering as a policy enables customers with solar photovoltaics (PV) to receive retail value for their solar energy. Large-scale evaluations of net metering performed in other states have presented this retail value as a cost to the customer’s u...
