Analytical system for photovoltaic and concentratingsolar power generation

ZHANG, SHAN January 2013 (has links)
Energy is the material foundation of human survival and development. Throughout human industrialization process, the fossil energy has made tremendous contributions in the progress of human civilization, economic and social development. For a long time, the development of human energy use patterns makes fossil fuels rapidly depleted and the consequences of environmental deterioration by this pattern lead to the severe challenge for mankind. Many countries start paying more attention to develop the new energy. The solar electricity production system is one of the main new energy power generations. The thesis is a guide of principle for solar power generation system. It focuses on comparisons between photovoltaic and concentrating solar power generations and analysis of their market prospects. The merits and demerits of these two systems will also be pointed out in this thesis.

Effects of the Edges of 2D Materials on Photoelectrochemical Solar Energy Conversion

Yan, Tao 17 May 2020 (has links)
Research on renewable energy must be hastened to solve the energy crisis we are now facing. Among all sustainable energy sources, solar energy and hydrogen gas fuel are two of the most clean and powerful. Photo-electrochemical (PEC) reactions use solar energy to electrochemically split water to produce hydrogen gas. Photoelectrocatalyst materials play an important role in increasing the e ciency of PEC reactions by absorbing solar energy and directing the energy towards the desired electrochemical reactions. Two-dimensional (2D) layered materials including MoS2, WS2, and SnS2 have drawn considerable attention as electrocatalysts and photo-electrocatalysts because of the catalytically-active nature of their edges and high charge mobility and transport e ciency within their layers. This work focuses on the synthesis, measurement, and simulation of PEC properties and behavior of WS2 nanotubes and SnS2 nano akes. The rst part of this work focuses on experimental synthesis and PEC measurement of edge-on oriented WS2 nanotubes and theoretical simulation of the atomic con guration and electronic structure of the edges by density functional theory (DFT) . WS2 nanotubes were synthesized by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and sulfurization, but showed very poor photresponse. The DFT simulation shows the edges of the WS2 nanotubes are metallic, like those of 2H-MoS2. The metallic edges likely act as recombination sites for photogenerated charges, which explains the poor photoresponse of WS2. The second part of this work focuses on experimental synthesis and PEC measurement of edge-on oriented SnS2 nano akes and theoretical simulation by DFT. The edge-on oriented SnS2 nano akes exhibited high photoresponse and excellent PEC performance. The DFT simulation determined the atomic con gurations of SnS2 edges, and the stability of both bulk-like and monolayer SnS2 edges at various S potentials. In contrast to WS2 and MoS2, the DFT simulation also determined that the edges of SnS2 are semiconducting, not metallic. Therefore, the edges of SnS2 would not cause recombination of photoexcited charges, and would enable SnS2 to achieve a high photoresponse, as was experimentally observed. The DFT results also showed that the band gap energy of the SnS2 edges becomes smaller with increasing sulfur coverage, and allowed the in uence of chemical synthesis conditions on the electronic structure of the edges to be determined.
