Natural gas network design under demand uncertainty
Koç, Erinç Barış; Şerbetcioğlu, Ayşe Canan; Department of Industrial Engineering (2019)
Pipeline and storage network design problem is to design a pipeline network with its constituting arcs and their capacities to meet natural gas demands of the cities, while minimizing the total cost of the system. Storage nodes are included in the network structure to store the natural gas in cases of insufficient supply. Models for the deterministic and stochastic versions of the problem are designed. The deterministic model is solved with the Benders Decomposition method. Three different versions of Bende...

Turkey, from 1980s on, has greatly invested in urban usage of natural gas, which is mostly imported. Alongside urban usage, natural gas is now widely consumed for electricity generation and industry. Beginning with 2014, even remote towns are also started to be supplied with natural gas. While there are many environmental and societal advantages of natural gas consumption over coal and fuel-oil, it can be argued that natural gas supply of remote areas is mostly due to social or political concerns. Natural g...
Natural gas diplomacy of Russia with the EU and Turkey: political and security versus economic and environmental dimensions
Tosun, Kürşad; Tanrısever, Oktay Fırat; Köksal Aydınalp, Merih; Department of Earth System Science (2016)
Energy relations among Turkey, Russia and the EU are very complex. In terms of natural gas, Russia wishes to secure its strong supplier status on Europe and Turkey, while the EU strives for diversity in gas pipeline routes and supply security. On the other hand, Turkey aims to strengthen its status as a transit country, at least preferably as a ‘hub’, and also seeks for diverse gas supplies. In recent years, Turkey was able to overcome difficult and sensitive political situations with successful maneuvers u...
Natural gas consumption forecast with MARS and CMARS models for residential users
Ozmen, Ayse; Yilmaz, Yavuz; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Elsevier BV, 2018-02-01)
Prediction natural gas consumption is indispensable for efficient system operation and required for planning decisions at natural gas Local Distribution Companies (LDCs). Residential users are major consumers that usually demand a significant amount of total gas supplied in distribution systems, especially, in the winter season. Natural gas is primarily used for space heating, and for cooking of food by residential users therefore, they should naturally be non-interruptible. Due to the fact that distributio...
Natural gas purification by zeolite filled polyethersulfone based mixed matrix membranes
Çakal, Ülgen; Yılmaz, Levent; Department of Chemical Engineering (2009)
This research investigates the effect of feed composition on the separation performance of pure polyethersulfone (PES) and different types of PES based mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) in order to develop high performing membranes for CO2/CH4 separation. MMMs were prepared by solvent evaporation method using PES as the polymer matrix with SAPO-34 particles as fillers, and 2-hydroxy 5-methyl aniline (HMA) as the low molecular weight additive. Four types of membranes were used throughout the study, namely pure P...
