A FURTHER COMPARISON AND DISCUSSION OF SUNSHINE-BASED MODELS TO ESTIMATE GLOBAL SOLAR-RADIATION

1990-10-01
In this paper, five sunshine-based correlations, namely, Benson et al, Gopinathan, Ögelman et al, Zabara and our new quadratic correlation are evaluated in terms of predictive accuracy. The data for 67 stations, ranging in altitude between 3 and 2210 m and in latitude between 20.15 °S and 53.30 °N, have been used. The new solar constant 1367 W m−2 is used in the analysis. The overall results show that the correlations of Benson et al and Gopinathan fall in the second rank and that the difference in estimation errors for the other three is negligibly small. Use of the new quadratic correlation is proposed because of its relatively wider spectrum of values for a and b.

Thermo-oxidative characterization and kinetics of tar sands
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Elsevier BV, 2011-08-01)
In this research, non-isothermal kinetics and thermal analysis of Gercus tar sand sample is studied by DSC (differential scanning calorimeter) and TG/DTG (thermogravimetry). Experiments were performed using three different mesh size (20-35, 35-50 and >50) of sample. Differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) curves revealed three reaction regions in the temperature range of 20-600 degrees C. On the other hand, thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) curves of tar sand samples at different particle sizes demonstrated three s...
INDUSTRIAL ENERGY-CONSUMPTION PATTERNS AND POSSIBLE SAVINGS IN TURKEY
TASDEMIROGLU, E (Elsevier BV, 1993-03-01)
Quantitative information on industrial energy consumption patterns in different industrial sectors of Turkiye has been analyzed. The more important energy-conservation opportunities in the heavy energy-consuming industrial activities have been identified. Considerable savings potentials exist through the application of short-term measures involving existing technology. The technological potential for conservation in industrial activities is reviewed.
CONSTRUCTION OF A QUADRATIC MODEL USING MODIFIED ANGSTROM COEFFICIENTS TO ESTIMATE GLOBAL SOLAR-RADIATION
Akınoğlu, Bülent Gültekin (Elsevier BV, 1990-01-01)
In this paper, a new correlation for the estimation of monthly average daily global solar radiation will be presented and compared with the correlations of Rietveld, Benson et al., Ögelman et al., and a recent formulation by Gopinathan. The overal results show that the quadratic form gives better performance in terms of global applicability. The new quadratic model should be preferred for the monthly average global solar radiation estimation when the data for bright sunshine hours are available
Exponential stability of periodic solutions of recurrent neural networks with functional dependence on piecewise constant argument
Akhmet, Marat; Cengiz, Nur (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2018-01-01)
In this study, we develop a model of recurrent neural networks with functional dependence on piecewise constant argument of generalized type. Using the theoretical results obtained for functional differential equations with piecewise constant argument, we investigate conditions for existence and uniqueness of solutions, bounded solutions, and exponential stability of periodic solutions. We provide conditions based on the parameters of the model.
Conjoint Use of Regression Analysis and Functional Measurement to Test Models of Combination of Factors Predicting Negative Attitude to Women
Bugay, Asli; Delevi, Rakel; Mullet, Etienne (Editorial Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, 2019-01-01)
The present study was aimed at showing that by conjointly using two techniques that are rarely used in combination - regression analysis and functional measurement, it may be possible to rigorously tests models of combination of factors using data obtained in traditional multi-item/multi-scale surveys. The data used for this demonstration were taken from a large survey (N = 3,235) of Turkish students' attitude to women (ATW). As it included 12 types of predictors (e.g., age, geographic location, score on co...
