About 20% of the final energy consumed in Europe is used in buildings. The active and passive use of solar energy is an approach to reduce the fossil energy consumption and the greenhouse gas emissions originated by buildings. Consideration of solar energy technologies in urban planning demands accurate information of the available solar resources. This can(More)
We discuss the accuracy of the prediction of the aggregated power output of wind farms distributed over given regions. Our forecasting procedure provides the expected power output for a time horizon up to 48 hours ahead. It is based on the large scale wind field prediction which is generated operationally by the German weather service. Our investigation(More)
The instability of currently used electrolyte solutions and of the carbon support during charge-discharge in non-aqueous lithium-oxygen cells can lead to discharge products other than the desired Li2O2, such as Li2CO3, which is believed to reduce cycle-life. Similarly, discharge in an O2 atmosphere which contains H2O and CO2 impurities would lead to LiOH(More)
The decomposition of lithium peroxide during the charging process of lithium-air batteries is investigated. A novel preparation method for electrodes in the discharged state, i.e., prefilled with Li2O2 using polyethylene oxide as a binder, is presented. The composition and reactivity of Li2O2-prefilled electrodes are examined by thermal analysis coupled(More)
Extra proviral copies of mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) are known to be present in the genomes of certain T-cell lymphomas of mice. Analysis of additional non-mammary tumor cell types known to express MMTV transcripts and antigens revealed the presence of extra acquired MMTV proviruses in a pituitary tumor cell line, a macrophage line, and Leydig(More)
We present an assessement of the methods used to construct maps for a new Solar Radiation Atlas for Europe. For this atlas station data and satellite derived data are used in an interpolation/merging process to derive maps of the long term monthly global radiation that cover an area ranging from 30° W to 70° E and from 25° to 75° N. Our focus is on the(More)
To assure the maximal energy yield of grid connected PV systems, system faults have to be identified as quickly as possible. For this task several procedures that offer an almost continuous performance check are in development or application. One of them is the EU-funded project PVSat2. In the framework of this project, a model, able to reflect the(More)
