Establishment and evaluation of a livestock early warning system for Laikipia, Kenya  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A new zone was added to the existing Livestock Early Warning System (LEWS), which is a subproject of the USAID Global Livestock Collaborative Research Support Program. LEWS uses the PHYGROW model and satellite imagery of weather and vegetation to estimate the availability of forage to livestock and wildlife. Drought advisories are then distributed to governments, development organizations, and pastoralists via the Internet, satellite radios, and written reports. The Laikipia zone was established in 2001 to provide drought early warning for the arid pastoral rangelands of the Ewaso Ngiro ecosystem in the Laikipia and southern Samburu Districts, Kenya. Field verification of PHYGROW estimates of standing crop was conducted in 2002. In addition, research was conducted to determine the ability of the warning system to provide significant advance notice of emerging drought conditions. Results of this study indicate that LEWS is capable of providing accurate estimates of forage availability on East African rangelands. There is also evidence that the use of LEWS advisories could accelerate drought response by pastoralists as much as three to seven weeks.

Superlattice photoelectrodes for photoelectrochemical cells  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

The application of superlattice semiconductors as photoelectrodes in photoelectrochemical energy conversion processes is described. The invention is comprised of a multiple quantum well, or superlattice, semiconductor positioned on a plate and encapsulated in an insulation material, except the top surface, which is left exposed. An opening in insulation exposes a portion of the plate. When the photoelectrochemical cell is immersed in a liquid electrolyte and exposed to solar radiation, a redox reaction occurs, producing gases such as hydrogen and oxygen from a water electrolyte, which bubble off the cathode and anode portions of the cell.

Diagnostics of a glow discharge used to produce hydrogenated amorphous-silicon films. Quarterly progress report, July 15, 1981-October 14, 1981  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Several aspects have been studied of the modification of silane gas by discharges in pure silane and in Ar-SiH/sub 4/ and He-SiH/sub 4/ mixtures. Results are given relating to the efficiency for modifying SiH/sub 4/, the ions, and the neutrals produced from SiH/sub 4/. Emphasis is on dc proximity discharges. It is found that a major portion of the Si atoms depleted from SiH/sub 4/ by the discharge go into other stable molecules, the disilane Si/sub 2/H/sub 6/ being the most prominant. Also discussed is the role of unstable radicals. (LEW)

Personal extrapolation of CDF test beam use to the SSC  

SciTech Connect

The author's personal experience in test beam usage at CDF is used to predict SSC needs at the point of turn-on. It is concluded that the test beam demand will reflect the scale of effort involved in SSC detectors rather than the total number of them. Provision for later expansion is recommended. It is also recommended that the test beam facilities, as well as detector electronics, should reflect the available dynamic range; particularly, a single high energy beam derived from the SSC could be shared by several groups.

Passively operated spool valve for drain-down freeze protection of thermosyphon water heaters. Final technical report  

SciTech Connect

The work done to extend the existing drain-down valve technology to provide passive drain-down freeze protection for thermosyphon-based solar water heaters is described. The basic design of the existing valve model is that of a spool valve, employing a cylindrical spool which moves axially in a mating cartridge to open and close o-rings at the two operating extremes (drain and operate) to perform the valving function. Three passive actuators to drive the basic valving mechanism were designed, fabricated, and tested. Two piping configurations used to integrate the spool valve with the thermosyphon system are described, as are the passive actuators. The three actuator designs are: photovoltaic driven, refrigerant-based bellows, and heat motor cable-drive designs. Costs are compared for the alternative actuator designs, and operating characteristics were examined for the thermosyphon system, including field tests. The market for the valve for thermosyphon systems is then assessed. (LEW)

Sulfuric acid/water chemical heat pump/chemical energy storage. Final report: Phases 1 and 2, October 1979 through September 1980; Phases 3 and 4, October 1980 through January 1982  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The sulfuric acid/water chemical heat pump/chemical energy storage (CHP/CES) concept was expanded to include previously unexplored applications, the most notable of which is the industrial chemical heat pump. A requirements analysis was completed which showed the CHP/CES application having the greatest near-term-commercialization potential in the form of a temperature amplification system. Another configuration, the HVAC system with or without diurnal storage was selected for further study. A verification test unit (VTU) was designed and is capable of demonstrating operation as an ICHP as well as an HVAC system. The VTU was fabricated and tested with a nominal power rating of 150,000 Btu/hr. Testing of the unit was directed at evaluating operational performance in the industrial waste heat upgrade mode.

Study of the interactions of molten sodium nitrate-potassium nitrate 50 mol % mixture with water vapor and carbon dioxide in air. Final report, June 2, 1980-June 30, 1981  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The interactions of aerial components such as water, carbon dioxide, and oxygen with the binary 50 mol % mixture of sodium nitrate and potassium nitrate have been studied in the temperature range 300 to 600/sup 0/C using electrochemical methods. In addition, the behavior of nitrite ions in this melt was investigated electrochemically. By judicious choice of techniques, in situ electroanalysis was possible and the necessary relevant data to accomplish this is presented, as well as insight into the corresponding electrochemical mechanisms associated with the electroactive species. The influence of each atmospheric component was examined separately. At temperatures above 300/sup 0/C, nitrite ions are found to accumulate due to thermal decomposition of the nitrate. Water is highly soluble in the salt mixture, but no hydrolytic reactions were observed. Two methods of in situ analysis for water are described. Pure carbon dioxide is found to attack the melt at all temperatures above 250/sup 0/C producing carbonate. (LEW)

Analysis of advanced conceptual designs for single-family-sized absorption chillers. Annual report  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The objectives of the research reported is to develop and analyze new concepts for absorption cycles to improve the performance or reduce the cost of a 3-ton absorption chiller that can be used with solar collected heat. New refrigerant-absorbent pairs are investigated, as are additives to currently used refrigerant-absorbent pairs. Results are given of a literature search on those topics. An initial screening is reported to check the values of the heats of mixing of candidate refrigerants and adsorbents, and also to screen several candidate absorbents against water as a refrigerant. A modified apparatus and procedures for measurement of refrigerant-absorbent solubilities are described. Pressure-temperature-composition data for the R-22/E-181 pair were measured. Based on theory and the information found in the literature, a set of criteria and guidelines was developed that gives the desirable properties of the refrigerants, absorbents, and pairs. (LEW)

Summary of the geology of the San Luis Basin, Colorado-New Mexico with emphasis on the geothermal potential for the Monte Vista Graben. Special Publication 17

The known geologic data of the San Luis Basin are reviewed and related to an understanding of the hydrogeothermal potential of the Alamosa-Monte Vista area. The physiographic setting of the region, the structural framework of the basin, and its influence on the stratigraphic makeup of the rock sequence, which in turn control the occurrence of potential deep water reservoirs, are reviewed. It is suggested that the San Luis Basin was well-developed by Miocene time, and that although the basin was modified by Neogene faulting, it is essentially a late Laramide event having been produced during the Paleogene. Attention is also given to high heat flow along the Rio Grande Rift and to the geothermal gradient of the San Luis Basin. The confined aquifer is then considered in respect to its hydrogeology, water quality, and as to the legal aspects of the system. (LEW)

The concept of a heat plan is introduced so that local officials may become familiar with thermal considerations and determine which options deserve further study and action. The approach for formulating a heat plan is a two-part process where heat resources and end-uses are first characterized in a heat atlas and then acted upon according to goals and strategies embodied in the plan. The purpose of the atlas is to systematically monitor a community's thermal supplies and demands, and to catalog them in the same manner as other community development sectors. The heat plan contains thermal goals and implementation measures based on conditions and opportunities revealed in the atlas. The heat demands considered in the atlas include space, water, and industrial process heat demands. Thermal resources considered include those conventional fuels already in use, as well as those alternate energy resources which have potential for utilization. (LEW)

Comparison of techniques for preserving dissolved nutrients in open-ocean seawater samples  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A survey of recent literature on methods for preserving nutrients indicates that the major factors which have been considered are: filtration and type of filter, material and history of storage containers, the influence of light, storage temperature and how it is achieved, the effectiveness of various acids, poisons, and preservatives, and the source of the sample. No comprehensive studies of open ocean seawater were found. A comprehensive study of nutrient preservation techniques was conducted on surface and deep seawater samples collected in the Gulf Stream east of Miami, Florida. No preservation techniques were found to be satisfactory for near-surface open ocean seawater. Results for deep water samples are found to be substantially better. The degree of preservation was not substantially improved by complex techniques involving freezing and chemical additives. Storage of filtered samples in aged polyethylene bottles at 2/sup 0/C in the dark is recommended for samples that must be stored. (LEW)

Glow discharge deposition at high rates using disilane  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The research program reported makes use of the fact that amorphous silicon films can be grown faster from disilane in a glow discharge than from the traditional silane. The goal is to find a method to grow films at a high rate and with sufficiently high quality to be used in an efficient solar cell. It must also be demonstrated that the appropriate device structure can be successfully fabricated under conditions which give high deposition rates. High quality intrinsic films have been deposited at 20 A/s. Efficiency of 5.6% on steel substrates and 5.3% on glass substrates were achieved using disilane i-layers deposited at 15 A/s in a basic structure, without wide-gap doped layers or light trapping. Wide gap p-layers were deposited using disilane. Results were compared with those obtained at Vactronic using high power discharges of silane-hydrogen mixtures. (LEW)

Biofouling and corrosion studies. Final report, Part II, January 1, 1978-October 31, 1979  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Data were analyzed from two experiments off Keahole Point in Hawaii, one on a tugboat moored in the Gulf of Mexico, and two on buoys in the Gulf of Mexico. These data gave heat transfer behavior of different heat exchanger materials in order to determine the degree of biofouling. A computer program used to analyze the data from the Keahole Point experiments was modified to facilitate the rejection of bad data and analysis of good data with much less manual editing. A program was written for a programmable calculator to allow quick calculation of heat transfer coefficients from raw data. Interpretation of biofouling data is discussed, and a physical model is developed which, it is shown, represents the data. (LEW)

Implications of fission-track annealing for geothermal models in the Pacific Northwest. Technical progress report  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

A fission-track dating lab has been set up. Samples have been obtained from fossil and active geothermal systems and are in the process of being separated, counted and dated with subsequent modeling planned. The thermal model of horizontal flow in a geothermal aquifer is being prepared. Modeling of magma systems and regional thermal evolution has been confined to studies of the Rio Grande Rift and the deep holes at the Fenton Hill Dry Hot Rock locality at the edge of the Valles caldera. Samples have been obtained from one deep hole in a sedimentary basin, the western Snake River basin in eastern Oregon. These samples are being separated so that the fission-track annealing can be studied. Studies of the systematics of fission-track fading are in progress. Several models have been investigated to explain the existing fission-track fading data, and several annealing experiments are planned. The use of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) for direct observation of fission-track fading has been investigated. (LEW)

The system is to operate in parallel with a fossil fuel boiler. An assessment is presented of the impacts of the solar energy system on the existing environment and to determine whether or not a more detailed environmental impact statement is needed. The environmental assessment is based on actual operational data obtained on the collector, fluid, and heat transport system. A description of the design of the solar energy system and its application is given. Also included is a discussion of the location of the new plant in Fort Worth, Texas, and of the surrounding environment. Environmental impacts are discussed in detail, and alternatives to the solar industrial process steam retrofit application are offered. It is concluded that the overall benefits from the solar industrial process heat system outweigh any negative environmental factors. Benefits include reduced fossil fuel demand, with attending reductions in air pollutants. The selection of a stable heat transfer fluid with low toxicity and biodegradable qualities minimizes environmental damage due to fluid spills, personal exposure, and degradation byproducts. The collector is found to be aesthetically attractive with minimal hazards due to glare. (LEW)

Sacramento Municipal Utility District, 100-MW photovoltaic power plant: draft environmental impact report  

SciTech Connect

The Sacramento Municipal Utility District proposes constructing a 100 MW solar photovoltaic electric generation facility adjacent to its Rancho Seco nuclear plant. After a brief description of the proposed facility, including the location and an explanation of the need for it, the project-specific environmental analysis is presented. This addresses: geology/seismicity, soils, biological resources, land use, air quality, water resources, water quality, wastes management, public/occupational health, safety, energy and material resources, cultural resources, socioeconomics, and aesthetics. For each of these areas, the setting is described, impacts analyzed, mitigation measures given where appropriate, and cumulative impacts described. Unavoidable adverse environmental effects, irreversible environmental changes and irretrievable commitments of energy and materials are summarized. Also briefly summarized is the relationship between local short-term use of the environment and the maintenance and enhancement of long-term productivity. Environmental benefits and disadvantages associated with various alternatives to building and operating the proposed solar photovoltaic power plant are described, considering project objectives other than producing electricity.

Improved fiberoptic spectrophotometer  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

The present invention allows for accurate spectrophotmetric comparison of the Raman scattering from a sample gas with the Raman scattering from a known gas via a novel fiber optic network. The need for complicated electronic of optical circuit balancing, control, or error compensation circuitry is eliminated. The laser cavity is split into two regions, one of which houses the plasma discharge and produces laser power, and the other of which is adapted to house tubes containing the gas samples. Light from the laser source is beamed simultaneously through samples of the reference gas and the unknown gas, and Raman-scattered light is emitted. The Raman-scattered light from the known and unknown mixtures is then alternately passed through a fiber optic network where the various wavelengths are spatially mixed. The mixed light is then passed into a system of light detectors, each of which are adapted to measure one of the wavelengths of light representing a constituent element of the gases. When the test is complete, each gas sample can be assigned a Raman-scattered profile from the data consisting of the ratios each of the constituent elements bear to each other. (LEW)

Inexpensive solar water heater you can build. Publication C-188  

SciTech Connect

Directions are given for constructing a home-made solar water heater that is expected to supply over 50% of the hot water for a family of 3 or 4. System cost is estimated at $250.00. The system utilizes three 2 x 8-foot solar panels. Hot water from the panels is pumped through a preheat-storage tank where it heats domestic water. The preheated water is then drawn into the cold water inlet of the regular home water heater. The pump which circulates the fluid is controlled by a differential thermostat which turns it on when the solar panels become hotter than the water in the preheat-storage tank. The collector panel design, construction, assembly, and installation are described in detail, as are the heat exchanger and storage tank. A thermosiphon system design is also briefly outlined. Sources of necessary materials are given as well as a list of needed materials, miscellaneous supplies, and major tools. Finally, the research and experimental work leading to the design is described, including the testing of models. (LEW)

Development of high-efficiency solar cells on silicon web. First quarterly progress report, April 20-July 15, 1984  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The major objective of the work reported is to improve web base material with a goal toward obtaining solar cell efficiencies in excess of 18% (AM1). The program consists of the investigation of carrier loss mechanisms in web silicon, development of techniques to reduce carrier recombination in web, and web cell fabrication using effective surface passivation. Web surfaces have been bevelled with the intention of measuring the electrical activity of the twin plane. Web crystals have been intentionally contaminated with vanadium and titanium to examine the twin-plane-assisted internal gettering by DLTS. Model calculations were done to see the effect of twin-plane activity on V/sub oc/ as a function of resistivity of the web material. Experiments were initiated to study the effect of heat treatment and gettering on the minority carrier diffusion length in webs. Fabrication of high-efficiency web cells using several web crystals was initiated. These cells will include surface passivation and double-layer antireflection coating. (LEW)

Investigation of test methods, material properties, and processes for solar-cell encapsulants. Annual report  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Potentially useful low cost encapsulation materials are evaluated. The goal of the program is to identify, evaluate, test, and recommend encapsulant materials and processes for the production of cost-effective, long life solar cell modules. Technical investigations have concerned the development of advanced cure chemistries for lamination type pottants, the continued evaluation of soil resistant surface treatments, and the results of an accelerated aging test program for the comparison of material stabilities. Experiments are underway to assess the durability and cost effectiveness of coatings for protection of steel. Investigations are continuing with commercial maintenance coatings based on fluorocarbon and silicone-alkyd chemistries. Experiments were conducted to determine the effectiveness of occlusive coatings for wood products such as hard-board. An experimental program continued to determine the usefulness of soil resistant coatings. Primers were evaluated for effectiveness in bonding candidate pottants to outer covers, glass and substate materials. A program of accelerated aging and life predictive strategies is being conducted and data are reported for sunlamp exposure and thermal aging. Supporting activities are also discussed briefly. (LEW)

The purpose of the workshop was to review the joint Thermal Energy Storage for Solar Thermal Applications (TESSTA) Program between CST and STOR and to discuss important issues in implementing it. The meeting began with summaries of the seven major elements of the joint program (six receiver-related, storage development elements, and one advanced technology element). Then, a brief description along with supporting data was given of several issues related to the recent joint multiyear program plan (MYPP). Following this session, the participants were divided into three smaller groups representing the program elements that mainly supported large power, small power, and advanced technology activities. During the afternoon of the first day, each group prioritized the program elements through program budgets and discussed the issues defined as well as others of concern. On the morning of the second day, representatives of each group presented the group's results to the other participants. Major conclusions arising from the workshop are presented regarding program and budget. (LEW)

Third-party financing of central-receiver repowering projects  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

An innovative third party financing approach for the first solar thermal repowering plants is investigated that may reduce the need for direct DOE cost sharing during the early application of central receiver technology by industry. Third party refers to a corporation, partnership, or a joint venture that can take advantage of existing financial incentives. The available financial incentives are summarized, including the guaranteed market for central receiver power provided by Section 210 of the Public Utility Regulatory Policy Act, and federal and state tax credits and depreciation schedules. The economics of third party central receiver repowering plant financing is analyzed, and the case history of the Arizona Public Service Utility Saguaro Plant No. 1 is used as an example. Finally, a sensitivity analysis examines the effects of variations of different financial parameters on the return on investment. It is found that a substantial portion of investment equity can be recovered in the first few years of plant operation, and good future years cash flows appear possible. Third party financing appears capable of helping stimulate mass production of heliostats and a rapid transfer of central receiver technology to utilities and industry, with attending economic benefits.

Financial barriers to the use of solar-industrial-process heat  

SciTech Connect

Industry concerns about solar process heat, attitudes toward investment in solar process heat, and decision processes and factors are reported. Four cases were selected from among 30 potential solar process heat installations that had been carried through the design stage, and case was analyzed using discounted cash flow to determine what internal rate of return would be earned under current tax laws over 10 years. No case showed any significant rate of return from capital invested in the solar installation. Several possible changes in the cost of solar equipment, its tax treatment or methods of financing were tested through computer simulation. A heavy load of extra tax incentives can improve the return on an investment, but such action is not recommended because they are not found to induce adoption of solar process heat, and if they were effective, capital may be drawn away from applications such as conservation were the potential to improve the nation's energy dilemma is greater. Tax shelter financing through limited partnership may be available. (LEW)

Diagnostics of a glow discharge used to produce hydrogenated amorphous silicon films. Final report, April 15, 1982-April 14, 1983  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The amount of silane reacted in a discharge is studied. The dependence of the fraction of reacted silane and the product forms on discharge conditions is studied. Results indicate the criteria for rapid, efficient film deposition, and the discharge and flow conditions that induce major modifications of the gas and probably of the depositing species. The discharge energy efficiency is also obtained as well as silane-use efficiency in pure silane and silane-noble gas mixtures. In-situ film-deposition rate monitors have been developed and used to study deposition as a function of discharge conditions. Further study has concentrated on the discharge ion species and the collisional processes which control the mixture of ion species. It is confirmed that the ion deposition is a relatively small fraction of all silicon deposition in dc discharges. Total electron collisional ionization of silane and disilane were measured, as well as the partial cross sections for producing various product ions. Ion-molecule reactions are also measured. (LEW)

Defect states in plasma-deposited a-Si:H. Technical progress report, May-July 1979  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Three preprints are presented. The first, entitled ''Glow Discharge Optical Spectroscopy Measurement of Dopant Concentrations in a-Si:H,'' reports significant differences between the ratio of boron to silicon of the films and that of their deposition plasmas. The second, entitled ''Growth Morphology and Defects in Plasma-Deposited a-Si:H Films,'' presents structural studies that show that a major class of defect is an anisotropic density fluctuation. Studies of the hydrogen environment suggest that an inhomogeneous hydrogen distribution is associated with these fluctuations. From considerations of the deposition chemistry and nucleation theory, a model is proposed to describe the film growth process and its relationship to defects. The third, entitled ''Luminescence and ESR Studies of Defects in Hydrogenated Amorphous Silicon,'' demonstrates that the two experiments involve identical recombination transitions, and identify two separate processes. One process involves defect states, and from the doping dependence of light induced ESR, it is deduced that the electronically active defects are dangling bonds with positive electronic correlation energy.

Investigation of a family of power conditioners integrated into a utility grid: final report Category I  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

A study was conducted of the requirements for and technologies applicable to power conditioning equipment in residential solar photovoltaic systems. A survey of companies known or thought to manufacture power conditioning equipment was conducted to asses the technology. Technical issues regarding ac and dc interface requirements were studied. A baseline design was selected to be a good example of existing technology which would not need significant development effort for its implementation. Alternative technologies are evaluated to determine which meet the baseline specification, and their costs and losses are evaluated. Areas in which cost improvements can be obtained are studied, and the three best candidate technologies--the current-sourced converter, the HF front end converter, and the programmed wave converter--are compared. It is concluded that the designs investigated will meet, or with slight improvement could meet, short term efficiency goals. Long term efficiency goals could be met if an isolation transformer were not required in the power conditioning equipment. None of the technologies studied can meet cost goals unless further improvements are possible. (LEW)

Wake of the MOD-0A1 wind turbine at two rotor diameters downwind on December 3, 1981  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The wake of the MOD-0A1 wind turbine at Clayton, New Mexico has been measured using a vertical plane array of anemometers in a crosswind plane at a distance of two rotor diameters directly downwind of the turbine. Rotor blade vortices were well mixed into the wake turbulence and were not separately detectable. Wake swirl about the along-wind axis had a value not greater than 0.025 rad/s. Extra turbulence energy existed in the edge of the wake at a frequency of about n=0.025 Hz. The cross-wake plane analyses of wind speeds revealed a nearly circular inner portion and a strongly elliptical portion. The elliptical portion major axis was horizontal. An estimate of the average rate of reenergizing of the wake, using measurements of mean wind energy flow and turbine power, suggests that entrainment with ambient air may have been rapid. Some wake characteristics were compared with the corresponding ones for several simple wake models based upon concepts of mixing of ambient air into a wake or an equivalent coaxial jet. (LEW)

Apparatus and method for identification of matrix materials in which transuranic elements are embedded using thermal neutron capture gamma-ray emission  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

An invention is described that enables the quantitative simultaneous identification of the matrix materials in which fertile and fissile nuclides are embedded to be made along with the quantitative assay of the fertile and fissile materials. The invention also enables corrections for any absorption of neutrons by the matrix materials and by the measurement apparatus by the measurement of the prompt and delayed neutron flux emerging from a sample after the sample is interrogated by simultaneously applied neutrons and gamma radiation. High energy electrons are directed at a first target to produce gamma radiation. A second target receives the resulting pulsed gamma radiation and produces neutrons from the interaction with the gamma radiation. These neutrons are slowed by a moderator surrounding the sample and bathe the sample uniformly, generating second gamma radiation in the interaction. The gamma radiation is then resolved and quantitatively detected, providing a spectroscopic signature of the constituent elements contained in the matrix and in the materials within the vicinity of the sample.

The objectives of the development effort are to: investigate the problems of molding parabolic trough solar reflector panels of sheet molding compound (SMC); develop molding techniques and processes by which silvered glass reflector sheets can be integrally molded into SMC trough panels; provide representative prototype panels for evaluation; and provide information regarding the technical feasibility of molding SMC panels in high volume production. The approach taken to meet the objectives was to design the parabolic panel, fabricate a prototype die, choose an SMC formulation and mold the glass and SMC together into a vertex to rim mirrored panel. The main thrust of the program was to successfully co-mold a mirrored glass sheet with the SMC. Results indicate that mirrored glass sheets, if properly strengthened to withstand the temperature and pressure of the molding process, can be successfully molded with SMC in a single press stroke using standard compression molding techniques. The finalized design of the trough panel is given. The SMC formulation chosen is a low shrink, low profile SMC using 40% by weight one inch chopped glass fibers in a uv stabilized polyester resin matrix. A program to test for the adhesion between mirrored glass sheets and the SMC is discussed briefly. (LEW)

Side-by-side comparisons of evacuated compound parabolic concentrator and flat plate solar collector systems  

SciTech Connect

Three liquid-based solar heating systems employing different types of solar collectors were tested side by side near Chicago, Illinois for one year. The three different types of collectors were: a flat plate collector with a black-chrome coated absorber plate and one low-iron glass cover; an evacuated-tube compound parabolic concentrator (CPC) with a concentration ratio of 1.1, oriented with tubes and troughs along a north-south axis; and an evacuated-tube CPC collector with a concentration ratio of 1.3 and one low-iron glass cover, with tubes and troughs oriented along an east-west axis. Results indicate that the flat plate collector system was the most efficient during warm weather, but the CPC systems were more efficient during cold weather, but the CPC systems were more efficient during cold weather, and the CPC systems operated under conditions too adverse for the flat plate collector. The computer simulation model ANSIM was validated by means of the side-by-side tests. The model uses analytical solutions to the storage energy balance. ANSIM is compared with the general simulation TRNSYS. (LEW)

El Paso Electric photovoltaic-system analyses  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Four analyses were performed on the Newman Power Station PV system. Two were performed using the Photovoltaic Transient Analysis Program (PV-TAP) and two with the SOLCEL II code. The first was to determine the optimum tilt angle for the array and the sensitivity of the annual energy production to variation in tilt angle. The optimum tilt angle was found to be 28/sup 0/, and variations of 2/sup 0/ produce losses of only 0.06% in the annual energy production. The second analysis assesses the power loss due to cell-to-cell variations in short circuit current and the degree of improvement attainable by sorting cells and matching modules. Typical distributions on short circuit current can cause losses of about 9.5 to 11 percent in peak array power, and sorting cells into 4 bins prior to module assembly can reduce the losses to about 6 to 8 percent. Using modules from the same cell bins in building series strings can reduce the losses to about 4.5 to 6 percent. Results are nearly the same if the array is operated at a fixed votage. The third study quantifies the magnitude and frequency of occurrence of high cell temperatures due to reverse bias caused by shadowing, and it demonstrates that cell temperatures achieved in reverse bias are higher for cells with larger shunt resistance. The last study assesses the adequacy of transient protection devices on the dc power lines to transients produced by array switching and lightning. Large surge capacitors on the dc power line effectively limit voltage excursions at the array and at the control room due to lightning. Without insertion of series resistors, the current may be limited only by cable and switch impedances, and all elements could be severely stressed. (LEW)

Amorphous Si solar cells. Third quarterly report, 1 July 1979-30 September 1979  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

A new technique, using controlled DC voltages in addition to RF voltage, was developed to deposit a-Si:H and a-Si:F,H,O, films. This technique allows the growth of films with uniform morphology and yet avoids ion-induced damage. Reproducible films with high photoluminescence efficiency, indicative of low defect densities, have been grown. A new measurement technique, thermo-electric power (TEP), has been used to measure the movement of the Fermi level in n and p-doped materials. Simultaneous measurements of TEP and conductivity have revealed that the Fermi level in n-type a-Si:F,H can be moved quite easily by doping, and that it probably moves into the conduction band at 75 ppM AsH/sub 3/ doping. The conductivity of n-type fluorinated a-Si is approximately 10/sup 3/ times higher than the best hydrogenated a-Si. However, p-type fluorinated films are not significantly different from p-hydrogenated a-Si. Bandgap measurements on B-doped a-Si have revealed that B doping, even at low levels, leads to the formation of B:Si alloy with resultant bandgap shrinkage. p/sup +/in/sup +/ junctions have been made in hydrogenated a-Si. They show good I-V characteristics, are photovoltaic, and V/sub oc/ = 755 mV has been obtained. A heterojunction model has been developed which partially explains the poor collection efficiency of p-i-n junctions made with B-doped p layers. A design, consisting of using a wider gap a-Si to make the P-layer so that shrinkage due to B-doping would result in a pseudo-homojunction instead of a low-gap heterojunction, has been evolved.

NETL's Gas Process Development Unit for Hot/Warm Gas Cleanup  

SciTech Connect

The long-term objectives for the GPDU project are to: (1) assess transport and fluidized bed reactor control and performance to determine the most suitable mode for continuous gas desulfurization, and (2) evaluate candidate sorbents for bulk removal of sulfurous compounds from syngas to assess the readiness of sorbents for commercial scale. The DOE has funded desulfurization and sorbent research for over 20 years and extensive laboratory-scale and bench-scale work has been conducted by government, academia and industry on the development and testing of regenerable sorbents for bulk sulfur removal from syngas (Cicero, et.al, 2000; Mitchell, 1998; Lew, 1989). However, the technologies still need to be proven in controlled conditions at a larger scale. Several Clean Coal Technology projects (i.e, the Toms Creek IGCC Demonstration Project, the Pinon Pine IGCC Power Project and the Tampa Electric Integrated Gasification Combined-Cycle Project) had proposed demonstrations of hot-gas desulfurization technology, but were not seen to completion (Clean Coal Technology Compendium website, 2002). As a result, there is a lack of data on sorbent and reactor performance under longer-term continuous conditions at a large scale. For commercial acceptance of hot- or warm-gas desulfurization, technology reliability is a question yet to be answered. The GPDU will fill the gap and has the objective to provide the proof-of-concept that is needed to foster commercialization of hot (greater than 538 C (1,000 F)) and/or warm (260 to 427 C (500 to 800 F)) gas desulfurization for IGCC processes. The GPDU facility, which includes a separate Syngas Generator (SGG) that supplies a simulated coal gas to the GPDU, is in the shakedown phase of operations with an initial reactor configuration of transport absorber-transport regenerator. The status and preliminary results of shakedown activities are presented to provide insight into startup and operations of a continuous transport desulfurization process.

Liquid metal cooled solar central receiver feasibility study and heliostat field analysis. Final report, Part II  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Four studies are presented, the first two of which are based on a specific design for a water/steam commercial 100 MW/sub e/ Solar Tower System. The first of these uses the RCELL computer program, which provides a cellwise method for the economic optimization of central receiver systems, to compare performance for several latitudes, field slopes, tower heights, heliostat costs, land costs, and input figures of merit. Using the systems design studies for the 100 MW/sub e/ unit, the second study performs a detailed net energy analysis on capital energy required to build the thermal collection component, including 6 hours of storage. Also determined is the Energy Amplification Factor, which measures the number of times the energy incorporated in the plant can be replicated during its lifetime. The third study provides a means for calculating the sun's position as a function of time. The fundamental reference frames for observing celestial objects are defined, and basic notions of orbits and time reckoning are explained. Series solutions for the equation of time and for the equation of the center are given. Phenomena affecting the sun's position and the errors which result when their effects are disregarded are summarized. A computer program to accurately locate the sun was written. The effects that two different sun tracker programs have on insolation prediction are compared. The fourth study describes and models the sodium heat engine, a continuous isothermal expansion engine for sodium vapor. The heart of the machine is beta''-alumina, a refractory material remarkable for its high conductivity of sodium ions. (LEW)

Suncatcher and cool pool. Project report  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The Suncatcher is a simple, conical solar concentrating device that captures light entering clerestory windows and directs it onto thermal storage elements at the back of a south facing living space. The cone shape and inclination are designed to capture low angle winter sunlight and to reflect away higher angle summer sunlight. It is found that winter radiation through a Suncatcher window is 40 to 50% higher than through an ordinary window, and that the average solar fraction is 59%. Water-filled steal culvert pipes used for thermal storage are found to undergo less stratification, and thus to be more effective, when located where sunlight strikes the bottom rather than the top. Five Suncatcher buildings are described. Designs are considered for 32/sup 0/, 40/sup 0/ and 48/sup 0/ north latitude, and as the latitude increases, the inclination angle of the cone should be lowered. The Cool Pool is an evaporating, shaded roof pond which thermosiphons cool water into water-filled columns within a building. Preliminary experiments indicate that the best shade design has unimpeded north sky view, good ventilation, complete summer shading, a low architectural profile, and low cost attic vent lowers work. Another series of experiments established the satisfactory performance of the Cool Pool on a test building using four water-filled cylinders, two cylinders, and two cylinders connected to the Cool Pool through a heat exchanger. Although an unshaded pool cools better at night than a shaded one, daytime heat gain far offsets this advantage. A vinyl waterbag heat exchanger was developed for use with the Cool Pool. (LEW)

DOE-Imaging grant FG02-06ER15829, entitled "Developing Laser-Induced Re-Collision Electron Self-Diffraction" Brief summary of accomplishments  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Our principal goal was the experimental demonstration of Laser-Induced Electron Diffraction (LIED). Key steps along the development of this experimental technique have been accomplished and reported in the publications listed in this brief report. We started with measuring 3D electron momenta spectra in aligned nitrogen and oxygen molecules. Chakra Maharjan (Ph.D. student of Lew Cocke) was a lead researcher on this project. Although Chakra succeeded in obtaining those spectra, we were scooped by the publication of identical results in Science by the NRC Ottawa group. Our results were never published as a refereed article, but became a part of Chakra's Ph.D. dissertation. That Science paper was the first experimental demonstration of Laser-Induced Electron Diffraction (LIED). Chakra also worked on wavelength dependence of 3D ATI spectra of atoms and molecules using tunable OPA pulses. Another Ph.D. student, Maia Magrakvelidze (her GRA was funded by the grant), started working on COLTRIMS experiments using OPA pulses (1800 nm wavelength). After some initial experiments it became apparent that COLTRIMS did not yield sufficient count rates of electrons in the high-energy part of the spectrum to see diffraction signatures with acceptable statistics (unfavorable scaling of the electron yield with laser wavelength was partly to blame). Nevertheless, Maia managed to use COLTRIMS and OPA to measure the angular dependence of the tunneling ionization rate in D{sub 2} molecules. Following the initial trial experiments, the decision was made to switch from COLTRIMS to VMI in order to increase the count rates by a factor of {approx}100, which may have given us a chance to see LIED. Research Associate Dr. Sankar De (his salary was funded by the grant), in collaboration with Matthias Kling's group (then at MPQ Garching), proceeded to design a special multi-electrode VMI spectrometer for capturing high-energy ATI electrons and to install it in place of COLTRIMS inside our experimental chamber. That apparatus was later used for the first demonstration of field-free orientation in CO using two-color laser pulses as well as for a series of other experiments, such as pump-probe studies of molecular dynamics with few-cycle laser pulses, control of electron localization in dissociating hydrogen molecules using two-color laser pulses, and ATI spectra of Xe ionized by two-color laser pulses. In parallel, Dipanwita Ray (Ph.D. student of Lew Cocke) worked on measuring angle-resolved ATI spectra of noble gases using a stereo-ATI phasemeter as a TOF electron spectrometer. She observed the angular diffraction structures in 3D ATI spectra of Ar, Kr and Xe, which were interpreted in terms of the Quantitative Rescattering theory newly developed by C.D. Lin. We also attempted to use a much more powerful OPA (five times more energy per pulse than the one we had at JRML) available at the Advanced Laser Light Source (ALLS) in Montreal to observe LIED. Two visits to ALLS by the PI, Igor Litvinyuk, and one visit by the PI's Ph.D. student (Irina Bocharova) were funded by the grant. Though we failed to observe LIED (the repetition rate of the ALLS OPA was too low at only 100 Hz), this international collaboration resulted in several publications on other related subjects, such as the wavelength dependence of laser Coulomb explosion of hydrogen, the wavelength dependence of non-sequential double ionization of neon and argon, the demonstration of charge-resonance enhanced ionization in CO{sub 2}, and the study of non-elastic scattering processes in H{sub 2}. Theoretical efforts to account for the hydrogen Coulomb explosion experiment resulted in another paper by Maia Magrakvelidze as lead author. Although for various reasons we failed to achieve our main goal of observing LIED, we salute the recent success in this endeavor by Lou DiMauro's group (with theoretical support from our KSU colleague C.D. Lin) published in Nature, which validates our approach.
