Introduction and general concepts.- Compressed Air Energy Storage.- Buoyancy Work Energy Storage.- Hydrodynamic Energy Storage.- Flywheels and Superconductors.- Phase-change Energy Thermal Energy Storage.
The available literature on energy storage technologies in general, and mechanical energy storage in particular, is lacking in terms of both quantity and quality. This edited volume focuses on novel (yet uncomplicated) ideas that are currently part of the Energy Storage curriculum at the University of Sharjah, UAE. These techniques have been extensively researched and their prototypes are central to the undergraduate Energy Storage Lab that is associated with the course. Although ideally suited for wind energy storage, the techniques described are also suitable for renewable energy storage in general, and offer high two-way efficiency ratings.
Dr Abdul Hai Alami, an Associate Professor at the Sustainable and Renewable Energy Engineering Program at University of Sharjah.
Dr Alami has received his PhD from Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada in 2006. Since then, he had held the position of Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Hashemite University in Jordan, till he moved to the UAE in 2010 where he worked as a Mechanical Engineering Faculty at the Higher Colleges of Technology, Al Ain.
The current area of interest of Dr Alami is the synthesis and characterization of mesoporous materials for third generation photovoltaic solar cells, solar thermal energy utilization and augmentation (selective solar absorbers, evaporative cooling of PV modules) and novel ways of mechanical energy storage (buoyancy force, superconductor synthesis and deposition as well as compressed air).
