Ocean thermal energy conversion plants : experimental and analytical study of mixing and recirculation( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is a method of generating power using the vertical temperature gradient of the tropical ocean as an energy source. Experimental and analytical studies have been carried out to determine the characteristics of the temperature and velocity fields induced in the surrounding ocean by the operation of an OTEC plant. The condition of recirculation, i.e. the reentering of mixed discharge water back into the plant intake, was of particular interest because of its adverse effect on plant efficiency. The studies were directed at the mixed discharge concept, in which the evaporator and condenser water flows are exhausted jointly at the approximate level of the ambient ocean thermocline. The OTEC plant was of the symmetric spar-buoy type with radial or separate discharge configurations. A distinctly stratified ocean with uniform, ambient current velocity was assumed. The following conclusions are obtained: The recirculation potential of an OTEC plant in a stagnant ocean is determined by the interaction of the jet discharge zone and a double sink return flow (one sink being the evaporator intake, the other the jet entrainment). This process occurs in the near-field of an OTEC plant up to a distance of about three times the ocean mixed layer depth. The stratified internal flow beyond this zone has little effect on recirculation, as have small ocean current velocities (up to 0.10 m/s prototype). Conditions which are conducive to recirculation are characterized by high discharge velocities and large plant flow rates. A design formula is proposed which determines whether recirculation would occur or not as a function of plant design and ocean conditions. On the basis of these results, it can be concluded that a 100 MW OTEC plant with the mixed discharge mode can operate at a typical candidate ocean site without incurring any discharge recirculation

The diffusion of photovoltaics : background, modeling and initial reaction of the agricultural - irrigation sector by Gary L Lilien( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper deals with the background, development and calibration of a model of innovation-diffusion, designed to help allocate government field test and demonstration resources in support of a photovoltaic technology across sectors, regions and over time. The paper reviews current work in the area of diffusion and substitution models, and gives a brief review of current theory in the buyer behavior area. A model is developed, drawing upon concepts in these areas, and its computer implementation is reviewed. The measures needed to calibrate the model are performed in the agricultural-irrigation sector in conjunction with a field installation in Mead, Nebraska. The analysis of those results indicated that - only three to four demonstration projects are needed to eliminate new product risk-perception among farmers; - exposure to a working PV site makes farmers more aware of potential energy savings than does a description of the system; - key factors associated with PV are - newness/expense - complexity of the system and use of untried concepts - independence from traditional fuel sources. - exposure to the site has little effect on preference; - PV is acceptable to a wide range of farmers; - a premium would be paid for the product. Additional model developments and the potential of a model-use to support decision-making for government programs are reviewed
