A Study on the Method to Predict Underground Temperature of the District without the Measured Data
Jeong, Soo-Ill ;
Journal of the Korean Solar Energy Society, volume 23, issue 2, 2003, Pages 1~7
Due to the lack of fossil fuel the demand for the development of alternative energy is gradually growing. There are solar energy and underground energy as the alternative energies for housing. To use underground energy, we need some data on the underground temperature but the data are very rare in our country. So we need tools to calculate the underground temperature. In this paper a method to calculate the underground temperature is sought with the latitude, the level, and the distance from sea for the district without the measured data.

Journal of the Korean Solar Energy Society, volume 23, issue 2, 2003, Pages 21~34
This study aims to present the applicability of wind turbine generator system to urban buildings for the utilization of clean renewable energy. The results are as follows; According to the wind resource analysis, it has been found that small sized wind power system can be viable for buildings application due to the amplification of wind velocity around buildings or building clusters, in spite of low mean velocity of 2-3m/s in Seoul and Kyunggi urban areas. But planners must perform micrositing analysis around building so that wind turbine can be located at high velocity zones. The system must be designed to avoid obstacles preventing prevailing wind in buildings. It should be recognized that wind speeds are changing depending on the height and length from buildings. The wind power system can be used as a symbol of landmark which shows a sustainable architecture from the scenary Itself A case study for apartment building in urban showed that wind power systems can be applicable in two kinds of place, rooftops and ground levels. Especially, the wind power systems must be carefully positioned so that wind resources do not decrease when it is installed at ground levels. and according to life cycle cost analysis, adaption of new small win4 power systems to buildings were proved to produce a profit if it is considered the expense of environment improvement and the wind speed increasing according to rise of building height. This research will ultimately achieve green architecture that preserves nature and at the same time provides pleasant environment to humans, and will play a great role in establishing the environment-preserving sustainable architecture of the 21th century.

In order to investigate the offshore wind resources around Korean peninsula, the "QuikSCAT Level 3" data by ADEOS II satellite was analyzed from Jan 1 2000 to Jan 18 2003. The "SeaWinds" on the satellite is a specialize4 device for microwave scatterometery that measures near-surface wind speed and direction under all weather and cloud conditions. Wind speed are extrapolated from 10m to 60m with the exponent of 1/10 in the power law model. It has been found that the High wind energy potentials are prevailing in the South sea and Southeastern end of Korean peninsula.

Journal of the Korean Solar Energy Society, volume 23, issue 2, 2003, Pages 43~49
The thermal performance of the glass evacuated tube solar collector is numerically investigated. The glass evacuated tube solar collector consists of a two-layed glass tube, a copper tube, and the working fluid. The length and the diameter of the glass tube are 1,200mm and 38mm, respectively. The diameter, thickness, and length of the copper tube and the flow rate of air are considered as the important design and operating parameters of the collector. The effect of these parameters on the thermal performance of the collector are investigated. The results show that as the diameter, the thickness, and the length of the copper tube increase and the flow rate of the air decreases, the thermal performance and the outlet mean temperature increase.

Journal of the Korean Solar Energy Society, volume 23, issue 2, 2003, Pages 51~58
PSHC(Prismatic Solar Hybrid Collector) is a passive solar system composed of prismatic acrly glazing, glazing and ventilating fan. This PSHC system is applied to effectively reduce heating ventilation load as well as lighting load. But so far no method appraising thermal performance of this PSHC system has been developed yet. To assess thermal performance of the PSHC system, a prototype PSHC experimental facility and TRNSYS subroutine type-205 model have been developed in Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER). The results indicated that l)TRNSYS empirical model of PSHC has been properly modeled with actual performance data, 2)a more reliable source of weather data such as NASA and KIER weather station have been also obtained, and therefore, 3)the annual energy performance of PSHC could be assessed based on this proposed TRNSYS model.

Journal of the Korean Solar Energy Society, volume 23, issue 2, 2003, Pages 59~70
A stoichiometric mixture of evaporating materials for
single crystal thin films was prepared from horizontal electric furnace. Using extrapolation method of X-ray diffraction patterns for the polycrystal
, it was found tetragonal structure whose lattice constant
, respectively. To obtain the single crystal thin films,
mixed crystal was deposited on thoroughly etched semi-insulating GaAs(100) substrate by the hot wall epitaxy (HWE) system. The source and substrate temperatures were
, respectively. The crystalline structure of the single crystal thin films was investigated by the photoluminescence and double crystal X-ray diffraction (DCXD). The carrier density and mobility of
single crystal thin films measured with Hall effect by van der Pauw method are
at 293K. respectively. The temperature dependence of the energy band gap of the
obtained from the absorption spectra was well described by the Varshni's relation,
/(T+335K). After the as-grown
single crystal thin films was annealed in Cu-, Se-, and Ga-atmospheres, the origin of point defects of
single crystal thin films has been investigated by the photoluminescence(PL) at 10 K. The native defects of
obtained by PL measurements were classified as a donors or acceptors type. And we concluded that the heat-treatment in the Cu-atmosphere converted
single crystal thin films to an optical n-type. Also, we confirmed that Ga in
/GaAs did not form the native defects because Ga in
single crystal thin films existed in the form of stable bonds.

This paper presents the effect of rotor geometry on the performance of a small-scale Wells turbine for wave energy conversion. In this study, four kinds the Wells turbine of blade profile were selected from previous studies. The types of blade profile included in the papers are as follows: NACA0020 ; NACA0015; CA9; and HSIM 15-262123-1576. The experimental investigations have been performed for two solidities by testing model under steady flow conditions. The effect of blade profile on the running and starting characteristics under sinusoidal flow conditions have also been investigated by a numerical simulation based on a quasi-steady analysis. In addition, the effect of sweep on the turbine characteristics has been studied for the cases of CA9 and HSIM 15-262123-1576. Based on the evaluation, a suitable choice of these design factors has been suggested. As a result, it seems that a suitable choice of the sweep ratio of 0.35 for the blade profile of the Wells turbine.
