A thermodynamic approach based on the hierarchical decomposition which is usually used in mechanical structure engineering is proposed. The methodology is applied to an absorption refrigeration cycle. Thus, a thermodynamic analysis of the performances on solar absorption refrigerators is presented. Under the hypothesis of an endoreversible model, the effects of the generator, the solar concentrator and the solar converter temperatures, on the coefficient of performance (COP), are presented and discussed. In fact, the coefficient of performance variations, according to the ratio of the heat transfer areas of the high temperature part (the thermal engine 2) Ah and the heat transfer areas of the low temperature part (the thermal receptor) Ar variations, are studied in this paper. For low values of the heat-transfer areas of the high temperature part and relatively important values of heat-transfer areas of the low temperature part as for example Ah equal to 30% of Ar, the coefficient of performance is relatively important (approximately equal to 65%). For an equal-area distribution corresponding to an area ratio Ah/Ar of 50%, the COP is approximately equal to 35%. The originality of this deduction is that it allows a conceptual study of the solar absorption cycle.

The electrical energy stored in the batteries of plug-in electric vehicles can be utilized in intelligent house systems to proactively manage electricity energy consumption and costs. The vehicle-to-home (V2H) technology has the potential to provide storage capacity to lower homes' energy costs and provide reliable backup systems in emergency periods. In this paper, the annual cost effects of integrating the electric plug-in vehicles into a hybrid solar PV/wind turbines driven residential district with 10 houses are investigated. These houses are located in Kentucky where both real residential electricity consumption and meteorological data are available. The effects of number of turbines, PV panels and storage capacity on the annual cost reduction were also analyzed. The results showed that for a hybrid system comprising of ten 2kW wind turbines and a 3kW PV array, the V2H technology can save more than 60% of the annual electricity cost.

Recently, distributed power generation systems especially with renewable sources have shown a promising result all over the world and have been a technical solution to demand growth for electricity. Among these, solar thermal power plants show a trustworthy source for electricity generation especially for rural areas where small scale solar plants are used. Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) is a suitable means for electricity generation from low grade heat and has shown a good compatibility with parabolic trough solar collectors (PTC). Here, a PTC integrated with an ORC cycle is being investigated for small scale electricity generation near Tehran. The system includes a solar field, a storage tank, and a small scale ORC engine. Performance evaluation has been done by means of commercial software Thermoflex19. Analysis to find the optimal design point turbine pressure and evaporator temperature for obtaining the best performance shows the effect of turbine inlet pressure and evaporator temperature on various cycle characteristics such as net output work, efficiency, solar heat input, oil temperature, collector efficiency and characteristics of heat exchangers such as pinch point and current UA. A comparison of different working fluids is presented. Results show that benzene has the best performance among fluids butane, n-pentane, iso-pentane, R123 and R245fa for the system conditions described.

The current work is applied optimization process with multi objective on the solar-powered Stirling engine with high temperature differential. On the basis of finite –time thermodynamic, new mathematical approach was evolved. Furthermore, thermal efficiency of the solar Stirling system with rate of finite heat transfer, regenerative heat loss, the output power, finite regeneration process time and conductive thermal bridging loss are specified. The power output and thermal efficiency and entransy loss rate are specified at Maximum condition for a dish-Stirling system and entropy generation's rate in the engine Minimized by carrying out thermodynamic analysis and NSGAǁ approach. Three well known decision making methods are carried out to indicate optimum values of outputs obtained with optimization process. Finally, with the aim of error analysis the error of the aforementioned results are determined.
