Energy Assurance with Renewable Generation
13 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Joydeep Mitra
This talk will discuss the most significant factors affecting energy assurance in the presence of renewable generation. It will investigate the use of energy storage to mitigate some of the challenges. It will discuss reliability metrics and targets, and a method for quantifying the notion of...
3 min Research Talk: Predicting and Optimizing Solar Cell Performance with Material/Surface Characteristics
31 Jan 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Yiheng Zhu
Photovoltaic simulation tools can be utilized to predict device performance before fabrication and experimentation, streamline research processes, and interpret experimental results. Therefore, we developed ContourPV, which simulates various combinations of values of different device...
