Tasks:
You are a lead engineer at a reputed energy consultancy firm. Your firm has won a contract to
investigate ‘deployment of rooftop solar (photovoltaic) and wind energy for a large building at UNSW
Kensington campus’. The firm’s management has given you the task of fact-finding. You are required
to produce a short technical report for the management based on your findings. The report must find
answers/solutions to the following questions/problems:
Question 1: Solar Energy [10 marks]
(i) [2 marks] Find a building with the most suitable rooftop area. Estimate the available roof area for
installing the photovoltaic panel. You can use the software tool Nearmap.com to assess the
building rooftops.
(How to access Nearmap.com – Go to UNSW Library website> search for Nearmap. In the search
result, select Nearmap under database category. Once you click the link, it will ask you to register
as a UNSW user. You will receive an instruction email to activate your UNSW account).
(ii) [1 marks] Find the average power and energy consumption for the building of your choice from
(i). You can use the link below to check energy consumption and average power of a building at
UNSW Kensington campus :
https://www.sustainability.unsw.edu.au/our-plan/energy-and-water-efficiency/kensington-
campus-live-energy-consumption
(iii) [3 marks] A datasheet of a commercial photovoltaic module was provided in the pdf file:
(Origin1500_Panel_Specifications.pdf). Use this data to estimate how many panels you will
require to supply the average power of (ii)? Can you fit all the panels on the available roof area
found in (i)? If not, what is the power that can be provided by fitting the maximum possible solar
panels in the available roof area?
(iv) [2 marks] How much annual energy saving is possible if the rooftop area is fully utilized using
the panels? To answer this question, you should consider the average irradiance and temperature
of the Kensington area and consult the panel specifications.
(v) [2 marks] How many panels need to be connected in series and parallel if the required output
voltage is 240V(DC) and power is the same as found in (ii).
Question 2: Wind Energy[25 marks]
In the discussion forum of ELEC 3105, many of you have concluded that a VAWT (Vertical Axis Wind
Turbine) can be used as an alternative to rooftop solar in the urban area. In this task, you will investigate
the feasibility of VAWTs for the UNSW Kensington campus.
(i) [2 marks] Use an internet search to find the average wind speed and air density for the Kensington
campus. Then calculate the power density (W/m3) of the area.
(ii) [6 marks] A VAWT turbine is used with a 3-phase, 4-pole, Y-connected, 300V (line), 50Hz.
Induction Generator for wind energy conversion. Equivalent circuit parameters of the generator
were found from experimental tests:
R1= 1. 54Ω/ph, R2= 3 Ω/ph, X1=X2=5 Ω/ph and Xm = 58 Ω/ph. Constant rotational losses were
200W.
There is a mechanism of slip control for the generator. The slip can be varied from
0 to -0.45 in steps. Find the output power of the generator for the step variation of slip. Present the
result as a plot between output power versus generator speed in rpm.
(iii) [4 marks] Calculate the range of efficiency for the generator for the same slip variation of (iii).
Plot the efficiency versus slip for the generator.
(iv) [2 marks] Using the efficiency versus slip plot of (iii), find the slip and the generator speed at
which the maximum efficiency occurs. These values will be considered as the rated slip and speed
of the generator.
(v) [2 marks] Record the value of the maximum efficiency and the output power at this efficiency.
These values will be considered as the rated power and efficiency of the generator.
(vi) [2 marks] Data of the VAWT turbine is provided in a pdf file (Vertical Axis Wind Turbine
Specifications_assignment2020.pdf). If the generator speed and slip are fixed at their rated
values, find the required gear ratio for cut-in-wind speed, cut-out-wind speed, rated-wind-speed
and average wind speed of UNSW Kensington campus.
(vii) [2 marks] Is the rooftop area that you have chosen for Question 1 also suitable to install VAWTs?
If not, you may look for other suitable buildings using Nearmap. Once a building is identified,
find the average power using the same link as in Question 1 (ii).
(viii) [5 marks] Considering the rated output power of the induction generator from (v), estimate how
many VAWTs will be required to supply the average power for the chosen building. Is it feasible?
Why or why not? How many VAWTs can be practically installed on the rooftop of the building?
How much annual energy saving is possible using these installations? Is it comparable to the
energy saving of Q1(iv)? Make comments.
