The application and evaluation of functional link net techniques in forecasting electricity demand

Yılmaz Öztürk, Işık Ekin
This thesis analyzes the application of functional link-net (FLN) method in forecasting electricity demand in Turkey. Current official forecasting model (MAED), which is employed by Turkish Electricity Transmission Company (TEİAŞ) and other methods are discussed. An emprical investigation and evaluation of using functional link nets is provided.

The thesis examines the applications of renewable energy towards community energy as an urban policy in the local governments of Turkey. A comprehensive study was conducted on the energy production and consumption from renewable energy in the world and in Turkey, and the increase in global renewable energy activities in recent years was discussed together with issues such as climate crisis and localization. In the discussions on political, administrative, and financial decentralization and privatization pol...
Appraising the integration of sustainable development into sectoral policies: The case of Turkish Science and Technology policies
Erdil, Erkan (Science And Technology Policies Research Center, Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey), 2009)
This paper presents the results of a study investigating how sustainable development can be integrated in Turkish science and technology policies. It contributes to the elaboration of the national sustainable development strategy and to the implementation of the EU acquis. The project’s originality for Turkey lies in its methodology (a participatory approach), and in its topic since sustainable development integration has never been dealt with in Turkey. Suggestions to improve this integration include stren...
Supporting renewable energy : the role of incentive mechanisms
Köroğlu Aydınlı, Filiz; Cömert, Hasan; Department of Economics (2013)
This thesis is based on panel data analyses by using one way fixed effects method in order to examine the factors that are effective on the development of renewable energy through putting a special emphasis on the role of incentive mechanisms. Two main groups of countries are employed throughout the empirical work one of which includes OECD countries and the other focuses on 40 countries and five different models are formed underneath these groups that have the natural logarithm of renewable energy share in...
Theoretical and experimental investigation of a humidification-dehumidification desalination system using solar energy
Solmuş, İsmail; Yamalı, Cemil; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, experimental and numerical studies have been carried out to investigate the performance of a solar desalination system working on humidification-dehumidification principle under the climatological conditions of Ankara, Turkey. The desalination unit was configured mainly by a double-pass flat plate solar air heater with two glass covers, pad humidifier, storage tank and dehumidifying exchanger. The system used in this work is based on the idea of closed water and open air cycles. A computer s...
The rapid visualization of resistivity inhomogeneities in high-resistivity semiconductor films
Salamov, BG; Civi, M; Altindal, S; Kasap, M; Bulur, Enver (1997-01-01)
This paper describes for the first time an application of an ionization type semiconductor photographic system using a chalcopyrite-type semiconductor (CuInSe2) copper-indium-diselenide film as a target for rapid visulization of resistivity inhomogeneities. The CuInSe2 semiconductor films with a resistivity of 10(7) Omega cm (thickness 0.25 mu m) in a planar gas discharge cell, have been studied. A measurement is realized by recording the spatial distribution of the gas discharge radiation intensity between...
