      Total load minus solar power is known a "net load." That's the new target utilities have to hit. And when solar starts getting big, net load starts looking a lot different from old-fashioned load. It’s also why as more variable resources are installed in New England, the region will rely more heavily on other power resources that can help balance the fluctuations of the combined load and behind-the-meter solar PV, such as efficient, fast-start natural gas power plants.

    Solar Energy • The solar constant, G s = W/m2, is the total solar energy incident on a unit area perpendicular to the sun’s rays at the mean Earth-Sun distance outside the Earth’s atmosphere • It varies between about and on an annual cycle, with max at perihelion and min at aphelion Power vs Energy: Power (Watts) is time File Size: KB.

Solar electricity is most ideally suited to providing peak load power due to heavy use of air conditioners on hot, sunny days during the summer. In that peak load application, solar will compete mostly with the internal combustion turbine, which is the most expensive source of electricity now in use.

Solar Energy presents an introduction to all aspects of solar energy, from photovoltaic devices to active and passive solar thermal energy conversion, giving both a detailed and broad perspective of the field.5/5(2).

The book includes high interest topics such as solar collectors, solar water heating, solar space heating and cooling, industrial process heat, solar desalination, photovoltaic technology, solar thermal power systems, modeling of solar energy systems and includes a new chapter on wind energy systems.

Base load is the minimum level of electricity demand required over a period of 24 hours. It is needed to provide power to components that keep running at all times (also referred as continuous load).

Peak load is the time of high demand. These peaking demands are often for only shorter durations. In mathematical terms, peak demand could be. The viability of storing solar power using batteries and using the same power during peak times is increasing due to declining battery prices, said Raj Pratap Singh, Chairman, Uttar Pradesh Electrici.

throughout the day. Peak load occurs only during times of highest demand. Power plants supplying peak load must ramp up and down quickly to meet sharp increases and de-creases in demand, but only run for a few hours at a time. No single generation technology meets all these needs.

Latent Heat Gain – is the energy added to the space when moisture is added to the space by means of vapor emitted by the occupants, generated by a process or through air infiltration from outside or adjacent areas.

Intermediate or mid-merit plants—which can fill the gap between peak load and base load generators—have become more prevalent in recent years. Intermediate plants typically provide most or all of their energy during the day when energy demand increases, and Figure 2.

They are two of the least environmentally disruptive sources of power available. They are also, for the most part, expensive to develop, and compared to more conventional sources of energy, relatively little power is produced from either and Geothermal Energy.
