Design of variable-speed dish-stirling solar-thermal power plant for maximum energy harness
Li, Yang, Choi, San Shing, & Yang, Chun (2015) Design of variable-speed dish-stirling solar-thermal power plant for maximum energy harness. IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion, 30(1), pp. 394-403.
Analysis on a developed dynamic model of the dish-Stirling (DS) system shows that maximum solar energy harness can be realized through controlling the Stirling engine speed. Toward this end, a control scheme is proposed for the doubly fed induction generator coupled to the DS system, as a means to achieve maximum power point tracking as the solar insolation level varies. Furthermore, the adopted fuzzy supervisory control technique is shown to be effective in controlling the temperature of the receiver in the DS system as the speed changes. Simulation results and experimental measurements validate the maximum energy harness ability of the proposed variable-speed DS solar-thermal system.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
