RadCool: a Web-enabled Simulation Tool for Radiative Cooling
14 Aug 2017 | Contributor(s):: Yu-wen (Wendy) Lin, Evan L Schlenker, Zhou Zhiguang, Peter Bermel
Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) systems can generate electricity from high-temperature heat sources via thermal radiation. However, the intense heating of a photovoltaic (PV) cell can greatly reduce the overall efficiency of the system. Therefore, it is critical to develop techniques to keep the PV...
