DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF HEUSLER ALLOYS FOR MAGNETIC REFRIGERATION APPLICATIONS

2019-01-01
Cooling systems are used in houses, cars, hospitals, defence systems and many other such areas. However, the gases (chlorofluorocarbons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons) present in today's refrigerant systems are harmful to the environment and cause global warming. Moreover, today's cooling technology is expensive and low efficiency technology. Therefore, new and cost-effective with higher energy efficiencies cooling systems have begun to be developed to eliminate the use of these harmful gases. Among them, magnetic refrigeration has attracted increasing interest in the materials research communities because of its higher cooling efficiency and environmentally friendliness. Full Heusler alloys are magnetic ternary intermetallic compounds with the L2(1)-type crystal structure. Typically, these alloys undergo a low temperature martensitic transformation (austenite martensite), a magnetic transformation (ferromagnetic paramagnetic) and relatively high temperature atomic ordering (order order and order disorder) transformations. After the discovery of the ferromagnetic shape memory (FSM) and giant magnetocaloric effects (GMCE) in Ni-Mn-Ga alloy, Ni-Mn based Heusler alloys have received considerable attention due to their unique magnetic and structural properties. In this present study compositional dependence of structural and magnetic properties of off-stoichiometric Ni-rich Ni-Mn-Ga Heusler alloys have been investigated, in order to determine an alloy composition where a coupled magneto -structural transformation occurs and to measure the MCE near this temperature. Structural and magnetic properties of Ni-Mn-Ga Heusler alloy system were investigated by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) measurements.

Evaluation of photovoltaic systems for voltage quality
Şengül, Deniz; Göl, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
Because of the governmental incentives and developing photovoltaic technology, the distributed photovoltaic systems are populating rapidly in power systems. This rapid population brings with concerns about voltage quality of the power systems. This thesis aims to evaluate the effects of those plants to the voltage quality of power systems in terms of voltage regulation and flicker. The thesis develops a statistical analysis method by developing metrics for a photovoltaic power plant located in Ankara, using...
Modeling the effect of dose rate and time on crosslinking and scission in irradiated polyethylene
Sargın, Irmak; Beckman, S. P. (2020-06-01)
The insulation around the electrical cabling in nuclear power plants is frequently made of ethylene-propylene rubber and crosslinked polyethylene that is subjected to low levels of environmental stressors and radiation over the duration of their decades long service life. For the purpose of maintenance and reactor recertification, it is necessary to develop a non-destructive approach to determine the degree of damage the insulation has sustained. Accelerated aging experiments are used to develop these metho...
Development of a computer software for hydraulic design of small hydropower facility
Alimoğlu, Emir; Yanmaz, A Melih; Bozkuş, Zafer; Department of Civil Engineering (2012)
Run-of-river type hydroelectrical power plants are the facilities that use only the available flow on the river without storing it to generate electrical energy. These kind of facilities are composed of structural components such as diversion weir, conveyance line, forebay, penstock and power house. In this thesis, a computer program called “MiniHEPP Hydraulic Design” is developed in order to perform the hydraulic design of run-of-river type hydropower plants. This program which runs under the Windows opera...
Evaluation of a Tunnel Form Social Housing Unit Based on Passive Design Principles
Yılmaz, Deniz Derya; Tanyer, Ali Murat (null; 2015-05-28)
Many countries developed methods for the definition of houses with a very low energy use in the past years, among which Passive House represents a dwelling with extremely thermal insulated external envelope, good air tightness and highly efficient ventilation heat recovery to reduce energy consumption of buildings greatly depending on the location. This paper is carried out to see if it is possible to design tunnel-form structures as Passive House buildings. Also in this paper, construction of a Passive Hou...
