Park, Mi-Ho ; Ko, Kyung-Nam ; Huh, Jong-Chul ;
Journal of the Korean Solar Energy Society, volume 33, issue 6, 2013, Pages 1~11
DOI : 10.7836/kses.2013.33.6.001
The investigation on wind farm design using CFD technique was carried out to reduce turbulence intensity in a wind farm. A potential wind farm in Gasiri of Jeju Island was selected for the design and the commercial S/W of Meteodyn WT was used for applying CFD technique. The initial layout of wind turbines was derived using WindPRO which is mainly used for wind farm design in Korea. Then, the distribution of turbulence intensity on complex terrain was calculated and visible by Meteodyn WT. Based on the distribution, wind turbines were positioned properly. As a result, wind turbines could be deployed at positions with minimum turbulence intensity as well as maximum Annual Energy Production, AEP, using Meteodyn WT. It is necessary to take into account turbulence intensity in wind farm design to avoid wind turbine failure.

Domestic solar hot water system can be divided into a passive type and an active type. In a passive type the storage tank is horizontally mounted immediately above the solar collectors. No pumping is required as the hot water naturally rises into the storage tank from the collectors through thermo-siphon flow. While, in an active type the storage tank is ground- or floor-mounted and is below the level of the collectors; a circulating pump moves water or heat transfer fluid between the storage tank and the collectors. We installed two types solar hot water systems consisting of the same storage tank and collectors at the same place, and were measured and compared typical operating characteristics under the same external conditions. In particular, the daily system performance was presented through the stirring test after the sunset. The results show that the amount of solar radiation obtained for an active type were less than a passive type on a cloudy day, because the operation of the circulation pump stops frequently took place on that day. However, on a sunny day, depending on the stable operation of the circulation pump, the amount of solar radiation obtained for an active type were increased than a passive type.

Kim, Seokwoo ;
Journal of the Korean Solar Energy Society, volume 33, issue 6, 2013, Pages 19~25
DOI : 10.7836/kses.2013.33.6.019
Energy generation from an instrumented Skystream 3.7 small wind turbine was used to investigate the effect of ambient turbulence levels on wind turbine power output performance. It is widely known that elevated ambient turbulence level results in decreased energy production, especially for large sized wind turbine. However, over the entire wind speed range from cut in to the rated wind speed, the measured energy generation increased as ambient turbulence levels elevated. The impact degree of turbulence levels on power generation was reduced as measured wind speed approached to the rated wind speed of 13m/s.

In an efforts to encourage renewable energy deployment, the government has initiated so called 1 million green homes program but the accumulated installation capacity of small wind turbine has been about 70kW. It can be explained in several ways such that current subsidy program does not meet public expectations, economic feasibility of wind energy is in doubt or acoustic emission is significant etc. The author investigated annual energy production of Skystream 3.7 wind turbine using measured power curve and wind resource data. The measured power curve of the small wind turbine was obtained through power performance tests at Wol-Ryoung test site. AEP(Annual Energy Production) and CF(Capacity Factor) were evaluated at selected locations with the measured power curve.

This work introduces a simple one-reactor adsorption desalination system that harnesses low temperature heat sources (solar energy, waste heat), which has been experimentally studied to elicit the most suitable design parameters and operating conditions. The design process of the system was divided into three parts to reflect the operating principle of desalination technology with application of adsorption processes. First, the evaporator for the vaporization of saline water was designed, then the reactor for the adsorption and release of the steam, followed by the condenser for condensation of the fresh water. The specific water yield is measured experimentally with respect to the time while controlling parameters such as heat source temperatures, coolant temperatures, system switching and half-cycle operational times. The present system well demonstrates the applicability of silica gel in relation to adsorption technologies that utilize low temperature heat sources ranging from 60 to
, such as solar energy and waste heat.

Degree-day method is very simple but essential index to estimate heating and cooling energy demand in buildings. It has been neglected, however, for the simplicity so it is difficult to find any DB for south Korean cities. Even meteorological department of S. Korea doesn't report the data officially. In this study, current methods that are being used in many countries are investigated and used to calculate degree-days of 35 south Korean cities with 30 years(1981~2010) historical data. The calculation result indicates that the error among 4 major methods are dependent on how daily or hourly temperature are treated in the calculation and how balance point temperature is defined. The errors of the methods are no larger than 6% relative to hourly degree-day method.

Park, Bong-Hee ; Kim, Seung-Min ; Choi, Ju-Yeop ; Choy, Ick ; Lee, Sang-Chul ; Lee, Dong-Ha ; Lee, Young-Kwon ;
Journal of the Korean Solar Energy Society, volume 33, issue 6, 2013, Pages 92~97
DOI : 10.7836/kses.2013.33.6.092
This paper proposes DC offset current compensation method of transformerless fuel cell/PV PCS. DC offset current is generated by the unbalanced internal resistance of the switching devices in full bridge topology. The other cause is the sensitivity of the current sensor, which is lower than DSP in resolution. If power converter system has these causes, the AC output current in the inverter will generate the DC offset. In case of transformerless grid-connected inverter system, DC offset current is fatal to grid-side, which results in saturating grid side transformer. Several simulation results show the difficulties of detecting DC offset current. Detecting DC offset current method consists of the differential amplifiers and PWM is compensated by the output of the Op amp circuit with integrator controller. PSIM simulation verifies that the proposed method is simpler and more effective than using low resolution current sensor alone.

At the moment, in Korea, over 90% of energy resources depend on imports, and nearly 60% of electric energy is produced using fossil fuel. Therefore, the government adopted the Climatic Change Convention and has implemented the RPS system since 2012 to actively cope with the dependence on imported energy, and to grow and expand the new renewable energy industry. This study examined the performance results of mandatory supply of solar photovoltaic energy and non-solar photovoltaic energy assigned to providers and the present state after implementation of the RPS system. As a result, the achievement rate in 2012 was 64.7%. Especially, solar photovoltaic energy showed a high achievement rate of 95.7%, whereas non-solar photovoltaic energy showed a low achievement rate of 63.3% due to several problems and was highly dependent on the government. In 2013, the burden of each provider has increased due to more mandatory supply and addition of unfulfilled supply of 2012, and the separate mandatory supply of solar photovoltaic energy established for protection of the solar photovoltaic market is restricting investment. Therefore, there is a need to assign mandatory supply in consideration of the available amount of each new renewable energy.
