Validation of All-Sky Imager Technology and Solar Irradiance Forecasting at Three Locations: NREL, San Antonio, Texas, and the Canary Islands, Spain
Increasing photovoltaic (PV) generation in the world's power grid necessitates accurate solar irradiance forecasts to ensure grid stability and reliability. The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) SkyImager was ...
Theoretical Analysis and Design of a High Bandwidth SiNx on SOI Grating Coupler for Telecommunications Application
(The UTSA Journal of Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Work;Volume 5, 2019)
One fundamental building block of integrated photonics is the fiber-to-chip grating coupler. The grating coupling method is mainly hindered by the vast difference in mode areas between the fiber cable and the waveguide, ...
Stochastic Planning of Distributed PV Generation
Recent studies by electric utility companies indicate that maximum benefits of distributed solar photovoltaic (PV) units can be reaped when siting and sizing of PV systems is optimized. This paper develops a two-stage ...
Evolutionary Multi-Objective Cost and Privacy Driven Load Morphing in Smart Electricity Grid Partition
Utilization of digital connectivity tools is the driving force behind the transformation of the power distribution system into a smart grid. This paper places itself in the smart grid domain where consumers exploit digital ...
