Modeling and simulations of a micro solar power system
Pehlivanturk, Can; Ozkan, Onur; Baker, Derek Keıth (Wiley, 2014-07-01)
In this paper, the mathematical modeling and simulations of a concentrating solar power system located at the Middle East Technical University Northern Cyprus Campus are presented. The system consists of parabolic trough collectors (PTCs), a propane boiler, an organic Rankine cycle (ORC), and a wet cooling tower. Presently, the PTC field is severely undersized with respect to the ORC making the system impossible to operate without burning significant propane. Expanding the solar field could result in better...
AN IMPROVED CORRELATION FOR ESTIMATING SOLAR-RADIATION FROM BRIGHT SUNSHINE DATA FOR TURKEY
TASDEMIROGLU, E; Sever, Ramazan (Elsevier BV, 1991-01-01)
The following quadratic equation was previously developed to estimate the monthly average solar radiation in any place in Turkey: = a + b tc {sup 2} where is the ratio of the monthly averages of the bright sunshine to the length of the day, a and b are constants that depend on location. The measured solar radiation and bright sunshine data from two stations, totalling 1842 days, were used to evaluate the constants. In 1982 the State Meteorological Office of Turkey started solar radiation measurements in six...
The potential and economic viability of solar photovoltaic power in Ghana
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (Informa UK Limited, 2016-01-01)
In this study, the potentiality and economic viability of solar photovoltaic (PV) in Ghana was assessed using RETScreen software. 5 MW of grid-connected solar PV power system using SunPower SPR-320E-WHT-D PV module can be harnessed from Navrongo, Bawku, Wa, Tema, Bolgatanga, Axim, Salaga, Kintampo, Kete Krachi, Tamale, Hohoe, Koforidua, Ejura, Takoradi, Bole, Sunyani, Bibiani, Cape coast, Prestea, and Akuse, which requires US$17,752,179 of investment capital and 25,313 m(2) of land for PV installation. The ...
Artificial neural network modeling for forecasting gas consumption
Gorucu, FB; Geris, PU; Gumrah, F (Informa UK Limited, 2004-02-01)
This study includes an approach to evaluate and forecast gas consumption by Artificial Neural Network (ANN) modeling for the capital city of Ankara, Turkey. ANN models have been trained to perform complex functions in various fields of application including the forecasting process. The process of the study is examining the factors affecting the output and training the ANNs to decide the optimum parameters to be used in forecasting the gas consumption for the remaining days of 2002 and the year 2005. During ...
Integrated deterministic approaches for productivity index of reservoirs depleted by horizontal wells and undergone multiphase flow conditions
Al-Rbeawi, Salam (Elsevier BV, 2019-04-01)
This paper introduces new integrated approaches for estimating pseudo-steady state productivity index (PI) and shape factor of oil and gas reservoirs drained by horizontal wells and dominated by multiphase flow conditions. These approaches couple PVT data, relative permeability curves, and pressure distribution models during pseudo-steady state flow (PSS). The objective is eliminating the uncertainties of applying single phase flow models and substantially comprising the realistic parameters that govern mul...
