Analysis of sunshine duration between 1970 and 2010 for Turkey
Yıldırım, Uğur; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Department of Earth System Science (2013)
In this thesis, 41 years of bright sunshine duration (SD) data of 192 meteorological stations in Turkey were analyzed. The main objective is to determine the trends of SD data and the importance of such analyses is the high correlation between SD data and solar irradiation reaching the surface of the earth. Because of the missing value problems, only the data set for 72 stations were examined. After imputing missing values of these stations by expectation maximization algorithm, to test the homogeneity Krus...
Modelling and performance analysis of linear fresnel collector for process heat generation for ice cream factory in Konya
Singh, Rahul; Baker, Derek Keıth; Tarı, İlker; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
In this thesis, a linear Fresnel collector has been designed to supply solar heat for industrial process. Firstly, optical analysis using ray tracing is done to determine the effects of collector’s parameters, such as height of receiver, mirror width and profile, gap between adjacent rows and slope deviation. Afterwards, one-dimensional thermal model is presented which predicts surface temperatures of receiver components and heat loss. The results obtained from both optical and thermal studies are then benc...

Modeling and financial analysis of a solar-biomass hybrid power plant in Turkey
Özdemir, Merve; Yozgatlıgil, Ahmet; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
Solar thermal and biomass combustion systems can be hybridized via a Rankine cycle to have a continuous electricity generation and lower CO2 footprint. Disadvantages of these two renewable technologies can be overcome by hybridization. In this work; we develop a simulation model for Rankine cycle based, solar-biomass hybrid power plants using the ASPEN PLUS software. Solar parabolic collectors and biomass combustion are arranged in parallel to produce steam for power generation. Using the simulation model; ...
