Journal Article
Golizadeh Akhlaghi, Y., Aslansefat, K., Zhao, X., Sadati, S., Badiei, A., Xiao, X., …Ma, X. (2021). Hourly performance forecast of a dew point cooler using explainable Artificial Intelligence and evolutionary optimisations by 2050. Applied energy, 281, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apenergy.2020.116062

The empirical success of the Artificial Intelligence (AI), has enhanced importance of the transparency in black box Machine Learning (ML) models. This study pioneers in developing an explainable and interpretable Deep Neural Network (DNN) model for a...

Operational performance of a novel fast-responsive heat storage/exchanging unit (HSEU) for solar heating systems (2019)
Journal Article
Fan, Y., Zhao, X., Li, J., Cheng, Y., Zhou, J., Yu, M., …Myers, S. (2020). Operational performance of a novel fast-responsive heat storage/exchanging unit (HSEU) for solar heating systems. Renewable energy, 151, 137-151. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.renene.2019.11.007

In order for a solar heating system to provide heat immediately after sunrise, a fast response is needed to the heat demand of a serviced space. The majority of existing solar heating systems have a slow response time due to the large volume of water...
