    Progress in Energy & Fuels, Vol.9, No.1, pp. 9(1), 1-3; , 2020; 207 Views, 2 PDF Downloads

    With the rapid development of social economy, the demand for new energy is also increasing, and then the problem of large consumption also has a negative impact on the development of the construction industry. Under the concept of green building, the design and construction units pay more attention to energy conservation and environmental protection, so they actively use photovoltaic new energy in the field of electrical energy conservation of construction projects, so as to improve people's quality of life. Starting from the principles and characteristics of building electrical energy conservation, this paper discusses the methods of building electrical energy conservation, and analyzes how to use photovoltaic new energy in the field of building electrical energy conservation, hoping to better practice the concept of energy conservation.

    A method for the measurements of the flow rate of high temperature molten slag using image identification was proposed. Image of molten slag could be acquired by high-speed camera. The flow rate of molten slag was calculated by the diameter, which was obtained by the edge detection, and the velocity of the feature points obtaining by threshold segmentation. Feature points could be found on the liquid column of molten slag by photo graphing, which showed that the method is feasible. Then glycerite was used to study the influences of different shooting parameters on the measurement accuracy. The effects of exposure time, frame rate and focal length on measurement accuracy were obtained. At the same time, it was found that the selection of location and length of feature region would also have a significant impact on the measurement accuracy.

    Capacity Optimization and Configuration for Household Wind/PV/Storage Hybrid Power Generation System

    by Min Wang

    Progress in Energy & Fuels, Vol.9, No.1, pp. 9(1), 10-13; , 2020; 398 Views, 2 PDF Downloads

      For capacity matching and design calculation on off-grid Hybrid Renewable Energy System, commercial software like Homer developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory is commonly used at present. This paper takes the load demand of household users as the research object, and uses the three cities with different potentials of wind and solar resources as the of the Wind/PV/Storage hybrid power generation systems simulation installation site. The Homer optimizes the system capacity configuration, and the goal is to find the minimum investment cost while meeting the users electricity demand. The results show that the potential of the wind and solar resources will affect the levelized cost of energy of the installed system. The levelized cost of energy will be smaller in the place where the wind and solar resources are abundant. At the same time, the unit cost of the wind turbine is higher than that of the Photovoltaic system, so the cost of wind turbines effect is more obvious for the levelized cost of energy of the overall system. Finally, the paper also analyzes the sensitivity of the technical parameters of wind turbines and loss of power supply probability.

    The Innovation Way of Fuel Cell New Energy Vehicle

    by Yue Zhang

    Progress in Energy & Fuels, Vol.9, No.1, pp. 9(1), 23-26; , 2020; 178 Views, 2 PDF Downloads

    China's automobile industry has made rapid development in recent years, but the environmental pollution caused by automobile exhaust is also very serious. In order to reduce the environmental pollution caused by automobiles, new energy automobiles have become the main development direction of the automobile industry. Fuel cells are one of the new energy sources. Although China has a very rich variety of fuels, the research and development of new energy vehicles is still in its initial stage and still faces severe tests.
