  • Hydropower installation

    DSEP100 Mains Decoupling Relays for hydropower projects in remote locations in the Cumbrian Lake District, UK.  Old decommissioned water wheels in Ambleside, Blencathra and Langdale have been recently refurbished and brought back into use as sophisticated hydropower turbines which are now working in parallel with the grid, ...

  • Photovoltaic string disconnect switches

    PV system arrays generate DC current. The solar modules are wired in series, and the system voltage is the sum of the maximum output voltage of all of the modules in a string. 600 Vdc maximum was chosen as an optimal system voltage to reduce installation costs by reducing conductor size and to stay below the 600V threshold in NEC Article 490. Prior to the growth in the number of installed PV ...

  • Photovoltaics: Basic Design Principles and Components

    If you are thinking of generating your own electricity, you should consider a photovoltaic (PV) system—a way to generate electricity by using energy from the sun. These systems have several advantages: they are cost-effective alternatives in areas where extending a utility power line is very expensive; they have no moving parts and require little maintenance; and they produce electricity ...

  • Solar photovoltaics: oligopsony, non-market decision-making and the paradoxical persistence of unprofitability

    Record volumes of solar PV power plant installations have been achieved on the back of feed-in-tariffs and fiscal incentives. On the supply side, however, equipment manufacturers have been filing for bankruptcy protection in quick succession. This paper is an attempt to unravel the mystery underlying this inequilibrium, and to suggest a way forward for the solar PV sector to thrive. The ...

  • What’s geothermal again?

    Some green energy sources seem to have charisma; others struggle for public attention with little success. Solar energy is an “it” technology, as evidenced once again by the tremendous participation in the annual Solar Power International conference in Anaheim, California this week (Oct. 27-29). Twice as many companies (945) are displaying their wares in the Expo Hall this year, despite the still ...

  • Optimizing PV Operations & Maintenance crucial to reducing LCOE in the US

    The solar PV industry in the United States is expected to install 2.86GW of photovoltaic systems by the end of 2012. As the project pipeline continues to grow, and as more plants come online, experts predict that operations and maintenance will play an increasing role in reducing the Levelized Cost of Energy for utility scale systems. Successfully operating PV plants and maximizing each ...

  • Wind power growth in the US

    Last year was a banner year for renewable energy in the United States, especially for the wind industry. As the recent REN21 Renewables 2007 Global Status Report highlights, the industry broke all past global records, installing 5,244 megawatts (MW) of new wind energy capacity in 2007, or 30 percent of all new U.S. capacity added. This brings the cumulative national total close to 17,000 ...
