  • This paper addresses the question of direct on-site use of photovoltaic (PV) power in grid-connected residential PV systems. Calculation of on-site use and utility sellback depends largely on how the residential load is characterized. In this study, a probabilistic model is used to predict the residential load pattern. Predicted load patterns are then compared with extensive monitored residential load data from the Northeast Residential Experiment Station, and the resulting load pattern is used to calculate on-site use and sellback. Conclusions are that in typical grid-connected applications, with an array size of 3 kW or larger, 50% or more of generatedmore » PV power is sold to the utility, unless some form of on-site storage is included. The effect of load management strategies on on-site use of PV power is also addressed.« less
  • During the course of the Offshore Code Comparison Collaboration, Continued, with Correlation (OC5) project, which focused on the validation of numerical methods through comparison against tank test data, the authors created a numerical FAST model of the 1:50-scale DeepCwind semisubmersible system that was tested at the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands ocean basin in 2013. This paper discusses several model calibration studies that were conducted to identify model adjustments that improve the agreement between the numerical simulations and the experimental test data. These calibration studies cover wind-field-specific parameters (coherence, turbulence), hydrodynamic and aerodynamic modeling approaches, as well as rotor model (blade-pitchmore » and blade-mass imbalances) and tower model (structural tower damping coefficient) adjustments. These calibration studies were conducted based on relatively simple calibration load cases (wave only/wind only). The agreement between the final FAST model and experimental measurements is then assessed based on more-complex combined wind and wave validation cases.« less

  • A mathematical model was developed for analyzing data from in vivo metabolism studies based on external monitoring of radioisotopes used to label pharmaceuticals injected into the circulation. Our method is atraumatic, depending only on intravenous injection of two radiotracers and on continuous sampling of arterial blood via catheter from a peripheral site. One injection is of labeled substrate; the other, of a labeled nondiffusible vascular tracer. Following each injection, radioactivities in the organ of interest and in sampled arterial blood are monitored by two external radiation detectors. Thus, for each study, four detector response curves are obtained. The purpose ofmore » the second injection is to allow unextracted vascular radioactivity, and by difference, tissue radioactivity, to be determined in the organ of interest. The equations of the model show how tissue radioactivity is related to uptake and utilization of unlabeled substrate in the organ. We have developed algorithms based on these equations for processing the four response curves in order to compute the metabolic utilization rate and other parameters of interest. These algorithms can be implemented on a digital minicomputer if so desired. We have validated our model in a particular application by measuring brain glucose metabolism in live rhesus monkeys, noting the agreement between the results of our method and those of an independent (though traumatic) technique. In conclusion, we discuss possible applications of our model in studies of other metabolic systems. (auth)« less
