Estimation of solar radiation of clear sky using non- linear methods case study: Fuerteventura (Spain)

Authors: Perez F.J.D., Chinarro D., Mouhaffel A.G., Martín R.D., Mayoral J.R., El-Hilo M., Domínguez C.M., Otín M.R.P.
The knowledge of irradiation in a geographical area is very important for multiple areas for the development of the area. Current calculation systems are based on statistical models of measurements of ground stations, or by external radiation calculations by satellite models. In this paper we show another method of calculation, [...]

Al-doped ZnO thin films grown onto ITO substrates as photoanode in dye sensitized solar cell

Authors: Dhamodharan P., Manoharan C., Bououdina M., Venkadachalapathy R., Ramalingam S.
The photovoltaic performance of dye sensitized solar cells using Al-doped ZnO thin films (ZnO:Al) grown onto ITO substrates as photoanode and natural dye as sensitizer had been studied. The effects of [Al/Zn] ratio on structural, microstructural, optical and electrical properties of these films were investigated. X-ray diffraction analysis of pure [...]

Comparative study on the effectiveness of UPFC and TCSC for increasing power transfer capability applied to non-linear load models

Authors: Ali Al-Mawsawi S.
In recent years, studies have been investigated the effectiveness of UPFC and TCSC in increasing power transfer capability. However, the effectiveness of these FACTS devices in increasing power transfer capability when the load is non-linear has not been established in a comparative study yet. This paper will explore the steady-state [...]
