Generally, buck converter controller is designed to control the output voltage of the converter. However, design of the controller in a photovoltaic power conditioning system is different from theoretical design guideline. The controller in a photovoltaic power conditioning system controls the input voltage of the converter (the output voltage of the solar cell) to meet a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) performance. In this study, a new model for buck converter used in a photovoltaic power conditioning system is proposed, which is linearized after state-space averaging in each period. Also, mathematical expression of the modeled buck converter is interpreted separately as small and large signals; therefore its appropriateness is measured to design linear voltage and current controller.

This paper presents a renewable energy configuration plan of Micro grid in Gapa Island. To analyze the characteristics of Micro grid, BESS (Battery Energy Storage System), PMSG (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator) and SCIG (Squirrel Cage Induction Generator) are first modelled. The PMSG and SCIG will operate with basis on the real power curve. when the total power demand is larger than the total power generation, the BESS will be operated and the SOC (State Of Charge) is reduced. If the value of SOC could drop down to limited value, the system may be broken because of the voltage drop of BESS. To solve this problem, a DG (Diesel Generator) is used to charge the BESS and keep the voltage value of BESS with in a allowance limit. This paper represents simulation result when PMSG, SCIG connected to the Micro grid installed in Gapa Island. The simulation is carry out by using PSCAD/EMTDC program with actual line constant and transformer parameter in Gapa Island.

Eom, Jae-Yong ; Lee, Hyun-Soo ; Suh, Seung-Jik ;
Journal of the Korean Solar Energy Society, volume 34, issue 2, 2014, Pages 44~52
DOI : 10.7836/kses.2014.34.2.044
The main purpose of this paper is to develop the new BIPV module equipped with vacuum glass. Beacuse BIPV module has a function of architectural materials, thermal and PV performance should be simultaneously evaluated. To improve the thermal performance of BIPV module, this study developed BIPV module equipped with a vacuum glass. Those BIPV module was tested with a variety of encapsulants. The results are as follows. When a vacuum glass is laminated with EVA or PVB, it was broken. The reason seems to be bending by unbalance of heat expansion with center and edge of vacuum glass. In case of lamination with resin, there is no breakage and no bending of vacuum glass. Because production was conducted in low pressure & low temperature conditions. And it was also found that vacuum glass does not interfere with the UV curing process.

Ice Rink is energy intensive building type. Concern of energy saving from buildings is one of very important issues nowadays. New and renewable energy sources for buildings are especially important when we concern about energy supply for buildings. Among new and renewable energy sources, use of seawater for heating and cooling is an emerging issue for energy conscious building design. The options of energy use from sea water heat sources are using deep sea water for direct cooling with heat exchange facilities, and using surface layer water with heat pump systems. In this study, energy consumptions for an Ice Rink building are analyzed according to the heat sources of air-conditioning systems; existing system and sea water heat source system, in a coastal city, Kangnung. The location of the city Kangnung is good for using both deep sea water which is constant temperature throughout the year less than
, and surface layer water which should be accompanied with heat pump systems. The result shows that using sea water from 200m and 30m under sea lever can save annual energy consumption about 33% of original system and about 10% of that using seawater from 0m depth. Annual energy consumption is similar between the systems with seawater from 200m and 30m. Although the amount of energy saving in summer of the system with 200m depth is higher than that with 30m depth, the requirement of energy in winter of the system with 200m depth is bigger than that with 30m depth.

Ground source heat pump system can achieve high efficiency of performance by utilizing annually constant underground temperature to provide heat source for space heating and cooling. Generally, the depth of constant-temperature zone under the ground depends on surface heat flux and soil properties. The deeper the ground heat exchanger is installed, the higher the heat exchange rate can be acquired. However, in order to optimally design the system, it is necessary to consider both the installation cost and the system performance. In this study, performance analysis of ground source heat pump system according to the depth has been conducted through the case study.

Ocean thermal energy conversion(OTEC) is a power generation method that utilizes temperature difference between the warm surface seawater and cold deep sea water of ocean. As potential sources of clean-energy supply, Ocean thermal energy conversion(OTEC) power plants' viability has been investigated. Therefore, this paper evaluated the thermodynamic performance of solar-OTEC convergence system for the production with electric power and desalinated water. The comparison analysis of solar-OTEC convergence system performance was carried out as the fluid temperature, saturated temperature difference and pressure of flash evaporator under equivalent conditions. As a results, maximum system efficiency, electric power and fresh water output show at 40, 10, 2.5 kPa of the flash evaporator pressure, respectively. And their respective enhancement ratios were approximately 6.1, 18, 8.6 times higher than that of the base open OTEC system. Also, performance of solar-OTEC system is the highest in the flash evaporator pressure of 10 kPa.

The MERRA reanalysis data provided online by NASA was applied to predict the annual energy productions of two largest wind farms in Korea. The two wind farms, Gangwon wind farm and Yeongyang wind farm, are located on complex terrain. For the prediction, a commercial CFD program, WindSim, was used. The annual energy productions of the two wind farms were obtained for three separate years of MERRA data from June 2007 to May 2012, and the results were compared with the measured values listed in the CDM reports of the two wind farms. As the result, the prediction errors of six comparisons were within 9 percent when the availabilities of the wind farms were assumed to be 100 percent. Although further investigations are necessary, the MERRA reanalysis data seem useful tentatively to predict adjacent wind resources when measurement data are not available.

The effect of wake on the performance and load of a downstream wind turbine on a floating platform is investigated with a computer simulation in this study. The floating platform consists of a square platform having a dimension of
with four 2 MW wind turbines installed. For the simulation, only two wind turbines in series with the wind direction were considered and the floating platform was assumed to be stationary due to its large size. Also, a commercial program based on multi-body dynamics and eddy viscosity wake model was used. It was found from simulation that the power from the downstream wind turbine could be reduced by more than 50% of the power from the upstream wind turbine. However, due to the increase in the turbulence intensity, the power is greater but more fluctuating than the power produced by a wind turbine experiencing the same wind speed without wake. Also, it was found that the load of the down stream wind turbine be comes lower than the load of the upstream wind turbine but higher than the load of a wind turbine experiencing the same wind speed without wake.
