Previously, in the example of the one-dimensional system, both the tracking and the weather had only a one-dimensional influence on the collector yield.
If, in addition, the functionality of the collector efficiency is coupled with the tracking system and buoyancy-controlled cooling as a function of the collector temperature, the tracking system in combination with the outside air temperature influences convection, which in turn influences the collector yield. This is already a multidimensional problem.
The question to be answered could be the following:
o How is the functional relationship to best align the collector depending on the outside temperature, sun position and sun intensity?
An example: Traffic Turnaround - Energy System Analysis
A particularly large and very topical example is to be found in the area of traffic turnaround. A prerequisite for the achievement of transport turnaround targets, the increase in efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources, is the analysis of subsidised transport concepts and their influence on energy generation, provision and saving of fossil fuels. Let's take the electric car. The electric car scores points in terms of efficiency and the recirculation of delay energy. A disadvantage is the increasing weight of batteries to achieve the usual range.
Similar to the weather, a system analysis can convert the behaviour of road users into a frequency analysis of driving distances, acceleration and deceleration processes and finally determine the energy expenditure in relation to the benefit.
If incentives are now set by new traffic concepts, for example the combination of a light city car with an efficient rail-bound vehicle carrier system for the efficient bridging of long travel distances, the influence on a changed behaviour of the road users on the frequency of the use of different technologies can be quantitatively evaluated in the system analysis.
