    Improving the Power Quality of Smart Microgrid Based Solar Photovoltaic Systems

    Emad H. El-Zohri1, Hegazy Rezk2,3,*, Basem Alamri4, Hamdy A. Ziedan5

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.30, No.1, pp. 201-213, 2021, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2021.018700

    Abstract Microgrids are hybrid power systems that consist of several distributed generation resources and local loads that can supply electrical power to remote or specific areas. The integration of microgrids with the utility network is one of the most recent technologies developed in countries like Egypt. One area of study is how the integration of smart microgrids and utility systems can be used to solve power quality problems such as voltage sags, increased use of distributed generators, deep energy, and power loss. This paper is aimed at investigating a possible solution to some common and dangerous… More >

    A Robust Single-Sensor MPPT Strategy for Shaded Photovoltaic-Battery System

    A. N. M. Alahmadi1, Hegazy Rezk2,3,*

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.37, No.1, pp. 63-71, 2021, DOI:10.32604/csse.2021.015029

    Abstract A robust single-sensor global maximum power point tracking (MPPT) strategy based on modern optimization for photovoltaic systems considering shading conditions is proposed in this work. The proposed strategy is designed for battery charging applications and direct current (DC) microgrids. Under normal operation, the curve of photovoltaic (PV) output power versus PV voltage contains only a single peak point. This point can be simply captured using any traditional tracking method like perturb and observe. However, this situation is completely different during the shadowing effect where several peaks appear on the power voltage curve. Most of these… More >

    Accurate Study and Evaluation of Small PV Power Generation System Based on Specific Geographical Location

    Lian Zhang1,2,3,5,*, Zijian Chen2, Heng Zhang3, Zenghong Ma4, Baowen Cao1, Lihong Song5

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.6, pp. 453-470, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.013276

    Abstract As an important new energy, solar energy has been extensively used in the world and different types of solar energy systems have been used in different fields. The photovoltaic power generation system has obvious advantage and high stability compared with other energy systems. Furthermore, the small-scale photovoltaic power generation system has a wider application in the field of power generation due to the performance of high efficiency. In this paper, the optimization research and system evaluation of small-scale photovoltaic power system have been studied in different areas by simulation and experimental methods.

    Design of Nonlinear Uncertainty Controller for Grid-Tied Solar Photovoltaic System Using Sliding Mode Control

    D. Menaga1, M. Premkumar2, R. Sowmya1,*, S. Narasimman3

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.6, pp. 481-495, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.013282

    Abstract The proposed controller accompanies with different sliding surfaces. To understand maximum power point extraction as opposed to nonlinear uncertainties and unknown disturbance of a grid-connected photovoltaic system to various control inputs (ud, uq) is designed. To extract maximum power from a solar array and maintain unity power flow in a grid by controlling the voltage across the dclink capacitor (Vpvdc) and reactive current (iq). A multiple input-output with multiple uncertainty constraints have considered designing proposed sliding mode controllers to validated their robustness performance. An innovative controller verifies uncertain inputs, constant and changes in irradiances, and temperature of More >

    New Correlations for Determination of Optimum Slope Angle of Solar Collectors

    Ali Khosravi1,*, Oscar Ricardo Sandoval Rodriguez2, Behnam Talebjedi1, Timo Laukkanen1, Juan Jose Garcia Pabon3, Mamdouh El Haj Assad4

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.5, pp. 249-265, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.011024

    Abstract The energy coming from solar radiation could be harvested and transformed into electricity through the use of solar-thermal power generation and photovoltaic (PV) power generation. Placement of solar collectors (thermal and photovoltaic) affects the amount of incoming radiation and the absorption rate. In this research, new correlations for finding the monthly optimum slope angle (OSA) on flat-plate collectors are proposed. Twelve equations are developed to calculate the monthly OSA by the linear regression model, for the northern and the southern hemisphere stations from 15° to 55° and –20° to –45°, respectively. Also, a new equation More >
