The combination of solar thermal, photovoltaic, and heat pump technologies is a welcome advancement in countries with large solar resources such as Turkey. These systems could have similar efficiencies throughout the year for different locations in Turkey if we adjust the solar storage according to the weather conditions. In this paper, solar heating with a heat pump system for buildings have been designed to achieve different values of the fraction of primary energy saved using Flat Plate Collectors (FPC) and solar photovoltaic (PV) technology, and having a high system efficiency resulting in net zero energy for thermal production.

Today, solar energy conversion technologies, which are among the methods of obtaining renewable, sustainable, and clean energy, show rapid development. One of the most common technologies is Photovoltaic Solar Power Plant (PVPP), which provides electricity by direct conversion of the energy carried by the sunlight (or daylight). These power plants are socially accepted in environmentally-friendly and economical energy production. However, there are some debates about the environmental impacts of these power...
Assessment of solar data estimation models for four cities in Iran
Jahani, Elham; Sadati, S. M. Sajed; Yousefzadeh, Moslem (2015-04-29)
The estimated solar resources are important for designing renewable energy systems since measured data are not always available. The estimation models have been introduced in several studies. These models are mainly dependent on local meteorological data and need to be assessed for different locations and times. The current study compares the results of Angstrom's model and a neural network (NN) model developed for this study with measured data for four cities in Iran. The time resolution for the estimated ...
Numerical investigation of circulating fluidized bed riser hydrodynamics for concentrating solar thermal receiver applications
Bilyaz, Serhat; Tarı, İlker; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2015)
Various heat transfer fluids and thermal storage materials are considered for concentrating solar power systems to improve the storage capability of the system which compensates the fluctuating behavior of the solar resources. Solid particles can be a good alternative since they have high sensible heat capacity. In addition, they are cheap, environmentally benign and chemically and mechanically stable at high temperatures. In this thesis, hydrodynamics of circulating fluidized bed solar receiver was numeric...

Hadjdida, Abdelkader; Bourahla, Mohamed; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Bekhti, Mohamed (2018-12-01)
Currently, solar energy is promising the primary source of renewable energy that has a great potential to generate power for an extremely low operating cost when compared to already existing power generation technologies. Increasing the efficiency of solar cells is a major goal and the prominent factor in photovoltaic system research. Current triple junction solar cells reach 30% and the next generation will bring 35% in 5 years to peak at 40%. These cells are used in space environment and in terrestrial sy...
Assessment of renewable energy based micro-grids for small communities
Sadati, S.M. Sajed; Taylan, Onur; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2016-7)
Deploying renewable energy systems to supply electricity faces many challenges related to cost and variability of the renewable resources. One possible solution to these challenges is to hybridize renewable energy systems with conventional power systems and include energy storage systems. In this study, the feasibility analysis of two cases for electricity generation systems as (i) photovoltaic (PV)-battery-pumped hydro system (PHS) and (ii) PV-wind-battery are presented as a Renewable Energy Micro-Gr...
