  • Model The Earth Shield From The Intense Solar Radiation

    SummaryIn this paper we will introduce the required powder to shield our earth and reducing the solar heat which will be intensified within the future. Three types of powder ‘Alumina, uranium, and Sand’ of various sizes ‘0-1000 um’ were involved in our mathematical model. Two types of shield were proposed, one around the earth and the alternative was around the sun. The Matlab program was ...


  • Solar radiation effects on evaporative losses of floating roof storage tanks

    There are 40 storage tanks in the Khark Island for storing crude oil. Considering the hot summers of the island, light hydrocarbons vaporise and vented to the atmosphere. This process causes environmental pollution and also affects the quality of the crude oil besides the economic detriment. Therefore, crude oil evaporation loss associated with the storage tank is an important issue which should ...

  • Solar radiation (PAR, UV-A, UV-B) penetration in a shallow maturation pond operating in a tropical climate

    Solar radiation is considered the primary route for disinfection of pathogenic bacteria in maturation ponds. There is scarce information on depth profiling and attenuation of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), UV-A and UV-B in shallow maturation ponds operating in tropical climates. Measurements of solar irradiance of the three wavelength ranges, together with turbidity, have been ...

  • Solar radiation estimated from measured air temperature: a review and proposed a new model

    Estimation of solar radiation from measured air temperature offers an important alternative in the absence of measured solar radiation because of the wide availability of air temperature data. Solar radiation is considered as the most important parameter in meteorology, solar conversion, and renewable energy applications. Many correlation models have been developed to estimate daily solar ...

  • Bright future of solar lighting

    Hybrid solar powered lighting (HSL) isn't anything like solar light based power that changes over daylight into power. Through the utilization of optical strands, HSL catches daylight, diverting it and funneling daylight into a building. At the point when there is practically no daylight, these installations use power with the goal that consistent lighting is accomplished. Gatherer ...

  • Solar thermal power coming to a boil

    After emerging in 2006 from 15 years of hibernation, the solar thermal power industry experienced a surge in 2007, with 100 megawatts of new capacity coming online worldwide. During the 1990s, cheap fossil fuels, combined with a loss of state and federal incentives, put a damper on solar thermal power development. However, recent increases in energy prices, escalating concerns about global ...

  • A new type of solar concentrator employing a cone-cylinder combination

    Most conventional solar thermal radiation concentrators have some sort of symmetry which allows them to concentrate solar thermal energy for their operation. We report a new system that utilises the symmetry of a cone and a cylinder combination to simulate the concentration of solar radiation on a ring containing a fluid (water). A halogen lamp is used as the source of radiation to simulate solar ...

  • Energetic and exergetic assessment of solar and wind potentials in Europe

    This paper deals with a physics–based assessment of renewable energy potential in Europe, particularly solar and wind energy sources, using two literature models. A sensibility analysis with the weather data is first done. Actual temperature, pressure, relative humidity, global radiation and wind speed data are employed to develop energy and exergy maps for Europe, based on iso–areas of land–use. ...

  • Technical Note: Loss-of-load probability of stand-alone solar photovoltaic system

    In this technical note, a general method has been given to determine the loss-of-load probability (LOLP) of a stand-alone photovoltaic system as a function of normalised PV array output and energy availability at battery. The energy availability at the battery has been determined by using the solar radiation utilisability concept. To determine the LOLP, the PV array output is required, which is a ...
