The value of seasonal energy storage depends on how the firm best operates the storage to capture the seasonal price spread. Energy storage operations typically face limited operational flexibility characterized by the speed of storing and releasing energy. A widely used practice-based heuristic, the rolling intrinsic (RI) policy, generally performs well,… (More)
Using the transfer matrix method for calculating the transmittance, absorptance and photon density of states of one-dimensional metallic-dielectric photonic crystals, we investigate the origin of the absorption enhancement in these photonic systems. The effect of the metallic layer thickness on the electric field distribution is discussed.
