as photovoltaic (PV) energy continues to gain market penetration due to the lower cost of photovoltaic (PV) modules, attention is shifting to the balance-of-system. In this paper, a new efficiency evaluation technique based on a usage model synthesized from high temporal operational data of a PV module is investigated along with a multi-objective design optimization of the DC-DC stage of a Module-Integrated Inverter. The analysis shows that the technique provides more accurate results then the California Energy Commission weighted efficiency method particularly when other geographic regions of the world are considered.

Hydro inflow forecasting and virtual power plant pricing in the Turkish electricity market
Çabuk, Sezer; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Danışoğlu, Seza; Department of Financial Mathematics (2016)
Hydro inflow forecasting with most accurate quantitative models is a very crucial subject for effective hydro optimization, virtual power plant pricing, volume risk management and weather derivatives pricing in the Turkish electricity market. Predicting increase or decrease in hydro inflow, seasonal characteristics of hydrological years such as wet, dry or normal, allow the decision makers to economically use water for optimal periods, quantify of volume risk and determine effective portfolio management strat...

Smart grid control purposes to rise the percentage of energy production through alternative energy sources like renewable resources and to make consumers to be comprehended in grid actively, is realising importance day by day. Further to that it can help us employment opportunities and improving growth in addition to keep the power on at minimum cost to prosumers, while the participation is elucidated and enabled new products, service and markets, accommodating all generation and storage options and provide...
INCREASING THE RELIABILITY OF THE POWER CONVERTERS USED IN RENEWABLE ENERGY SYSTEMS BY USING A VARIABLE SWITCHING ALGORITHM
Musadiq, Muhammad; Batunlu, Canras; Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-7)
As we recognize that the number of people on earth is growing at an exponential rate, so does the energy demand, if producing power from wind and solar is contemplated, resources can be used to meet that demand. The purpose of this thesis is to design a converter that helps to integrate the renewables into the DC Microgrid smoothly and encounters the thermal issues on its own. To avoid these circumstances’ reliability of the power converters increased by reducing the temperature issues and the thermal varia...
