Typical weather data of main Turkish cities for energy applications

Uner, M
Ileri, A
Energy consumption and performance investigations of environment-dependent systems such as building HVAC and refrigeration systems, solar collectors, cooling towers, usually require weather information. This introduces a problem because there may be significant variances between the recurrent days or years. In this work, typical hourly weather data for the selected 23 provinces that represent demographic and climatic conditions of Turkey are obtained by using actual recordings. The results are stored as computer files ready to be used by simulation programs. By using these typical meteorological years, heating and cooling degree-days, dry-bulb temperature bins and winter and summer design dry-bulb temperatures are calculated. Sample typical-year simulations show for example that energy savings of about 11 and 16 per cent could be expected in Ankara by 3 and 5 K night-setback, respectively.

Evaluation of hybridsolar-wind-hydrogenenergy system based on methanol electrolyzer
Budak, Yagmur; DEVRİM, YILSER (Wiley, 2020-10-01)
In this study, it is aimed to meet the annual electricity and heating needs of a house without interruption with the photovoltaic panel, wind turbine, methanol electrolyzer, and high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell system. The system results show that the use of the 2 WT with 18 PV was enough to provide the need of the methanol electrolyzer, which provides requirements of the high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell. The produced heat by the fuel cell was used to meet the heat requ...
Statistical analysis of solar radiation data
Yilmaz, E.; Cancino, B.; Parra, W. R. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
Solar radiation is the most important parameter in the design and study of solar energy conversion devices. The present work is based on statistical analysis of solar radiation data for the city of Valparaiso in the coast region of Chile. Experimental data were obtained from the Santa Maria University in Valparaiso over a five-year period measured by the actinograph and the pyranometer. The error between the actinography values in relation to the pyranometer ones was determined. The most frequent error perc...
An investigation of optimum PV and wind energy system capacities for alternate short and long-term energy storage sizing methodologies
Al-Ghussain, Loiy; Taylan, Onur; Baker, Derek Keıth (Wiley, 2019-01-01)
The goal of this study is to find the optimal sizes of renewable energy systems (RES) based on photovoltaic (PV) and/or wind systems for three energy storage system (ESS) scenarios in a micro-grid; (1) with pumped hydro storage (PHS) as a long-term ESS, (2) with batteries as a short-term ESS, and (3) without ESS. The PV and wind sizes are optimally determined to accomplish the maximum annual RES fraction (F-RES) with electricity cost lower than or equal to the utility tariff. Furthermore, the effect of the ...

The necessity for technical-economic analysis of solar energy systems is obvious when assessing their feasibility vis-á-vis conventional alternative systems. Optimum magnitudes of the installation parameters should be defined under the required economic conditions. In this study, the optimization procedure was chosen so as to maximize the total accumulated saving throughout the economic lifetime of the system. The annual solar heating fraction of the system is assessed using the f-chart method which can be ...
Quasi-dynamic model for an organic Rankine cycle
Bamgbopa, Musbaudeen O.; Uzgoren, Eray (Elsevier BV, 2013-08-01)
When considering solar based thermal energy input to an organic Rankine cycle (ORC), intermittent nature of the heat input does not only adversely affect the power output but also it may prevent ORC to operate under steady state conditions. In order to identify reliability and efficiency of such systems, this paper presents a simplified transient modeling approach for an ORC operating under variable heat input. The approach considers that response of the system to heat input variations is mainly dictated by...
