About This Special Issue
The objective of this special issue “Green Hybrid Systems for power generation in Remote Zones Non-Connected to GridMobile Internet” is to explore and assess the future energy potential from renewable sources, specifically for remote areas non-connected to the grid. This issue focuses on the renewable green sources namely; solar and wind energy, biomass, geothermal, hydraulic energy, Thermal storage, Hydrogen technology, Ocean Thermal Energy and CHP for the 21st century (2030-2050).

Papers should present numerical simulation models, or/and experimental techniques for predicting the total power generated by hybrid green energy systems composed of renewable/integrated Combined Heat and Power (CHP) energy sources. Numerical models or experimental techniques based upon describing the energy conservation and conversion equations of the different mechanisms and processes of the aforementioned hybrid systems. The predicted results and data should be analyzed, discussed and compared to available data in the literature under various conditions.

Aims and Scope:
Hybrid System
Solar Photovoltaic
Fuel cells and Hydrogen Storage
Wind Energy
Thermal solar
Thermal storage
District Heating
Modeling, Simulation
Experimental techniques
Validation experimental data

    Abstract: A numerical mathematical model has been developed to predict the thermal behavior of thermal solar collectors using nanofluids. The model is based upon energy conservation equations for nanofluids flow and heat transfer using different nanofluids. The thermal behavior of the solar collectors during charging has been studied numerically, and analyze... Show More
