Storage Size Determination for Grid-Connected Photovoltaic Systems
TLDR
We propose a criterion for evaluating the economic value of batteries compared to purchasing electricity from the grid, propose lower and upper bounds on Crefc, and introduce an efficient algorithm for calculating its value; these results are validated via simulations. Expand

Regional and hemispheric impacts of anthropogenic and biomass burning emissions on summertime CO and O3 in the North Atlantic lower free troposphere
[1] We report summertime measurements of CO and O3 obtained during 2001–2003 at the PICO-NARE mountaintop station in the Azores. Frequent events of elevated CO mixing ratios were observed. On theExpand
