Results and Discussion

We now apply the model presented above to some actual data (Joshi et al., 2008) sets as obtained through experiments in New Delhi, India, which is located at 77 12' E longitude and 28 35' N latitude. The test was performed from 9 00 a.m. to 4 00 p.m. on March 27, 2006, and the data measured included total solar irradiation, voltage, open-circuit voltage, current, short-circuit current, cell temperature, ambient temperature, and velocity of the air just above the photovoltaic surface. The data...

Solar Energy Result Conclusion

The construction industry requires the extraction of vast quantities of materials, resulting in the consumption of energy resources and the release of deleterious pollutant emissions to the biosphere. Energy and pollutant emissions, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), may be regarded as being 'embodied' or associated with materials. Here the embodied energy was viewed as the quantity of energy required to extract, process, and supply the material under consideration. Likewise the emission of...

System Description and Control Strategy

Solar Absorption Chiller Schematic

A schematic diagram of the system studied is represented in Fig. 28.1. The system consists of a solar collector, a storage tank, an absorption chiller, heat exchanger, and auxiliary units. The system operates in four different modes. When solar energy is available for collection and there is a load demand, heat is supplied directly from the collector to the heating or cooling unit. When solar energy is available for collection and there is no heat or cooling demand, heat is stored in the...

Conclusion Of Report On Solar Parabolic Collector

This chapter presents a review and analysis of solar-driven heat engines for power generation with relevance to residential applications. The impact of solar systems on sustainable development is quantified based on fossil fuel vs solar energy utilization factors predicted over the next decades and by sustainability factor as introduced also in other works, e.g., by Dincer and Rosen (2005). The established large-scale and small-scale systems are presented and analyzed based on their performance...

Case Study Broccoli Drying

Latest Conveyor Drying Systems

Fresh broccoli (Brassica oleracea) was purchased from a local market in Izmir, Turkey. It was processed within 24 h. Broccoli samples were washed with water, and then the excess water on the surface of broccoli was removed with filter paper. Afterward, florets of broccoli were separated. Broccoli florets were dried in a heat pump conveyor dryer designed and constructed in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Ege University, Izmir, Turkey, shown schematically in Fig....

Shipyard processes and pollutant sources

The shipbuilding and repair industry processes include surface preparation, painting and coating, metal plating and surface finishing, solvent cleaning and degreas- ing, machining and metal working, welding, vessel cleaning, and fiberglass operations. They consume various types of products and produce solid, liquid, and gaseous pollutants. Many different production processes employed in shipbuilding and repair require a vast amount of material inputs and generate huge amounts of waste and...
