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...
Evaluation and Comparisons of the Models to Calculate Solar Irradiation on Inclined Solar Panels for Ankara
Özden, Talat; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin; Karaveli, Abdullah Buğrahan (2017-11-29)
In the optimization and feasibility analysis of renewable energy systems, the accuracy of the simulation methods is extremely important. Thus, in the case of solar energy systems, estimating the monthly average daily solar irradiation incident on inclined solar panels is the main step of long-term feasibility analysis toward reaching the viable investments. In fact, most solar energy investor companies use silicon solar irradiation measuring instruments in Turkey although only a few of them also measure the...
Estimation of diffuse component for two locations in Turkey
Karaveli, Abdullah Bugrahan; Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin (2016-10-14)
In analyzing the solar energy systems, the first step is the accurate measurements/estimations of the input in the long term: solar irradiation incident on the panels. The measurements are lacking in many places so the estimation procedures should be developed using the measured data of the locations having similar climates and close in latitudes. In most life cycle assessments, monthly averages of daily values are utilized in the form of typical meteorological year or simply with the averages of a year or ...
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...
