The significance of renewable energy resources provide a great opportunity to meet a single household electricity demand in Northern Cyprus. Purposefully, a 6 kW PV-Wind hybrid system seems to offer significant economic savings relative to the conventional grid system. Therefore, the main intention is to shed light on the technical as well as economic feasibility of combining renewable sources. The solar irradiance and wind speed data are analyzed for four populous cities of TRNC using RET-Screen software. The expected energy consumption for a normal household in Northern Cyprus comes out to be 11.27 kWh/d using HOMER software. The proposed hybrid model integrated with Ni-MH battery is designed in MATLAB software to visualize the possible energy output to be feed to the load. The results show that the proposed model provides alternative incentives to the consumers and it is economically feasible.

OPTIMAL CONTROLLER DESIGN FOR SPEED GOVERNORS OF HYDROELECTRIC POWER PLANT
Altinoz, Okkes Tolga; KOŞALAY, İLHAN; Gezer, Derya (VSB - Technical University of Ostrava, 2020-06-01)
Speed governors have critical importance on hydroelectric power plants, which are adjusted to the rotating speed of hydroelectric generation based on load demand of the grid. The rotating speed is the main factor to balance power generation and load demand. The well-designed controller is needed to control speed governors with high accuracy. A well-defined model is needed to obtain desired control structure. Therefore, in this study, initially, the mathematical model of a hydroelectric power plant is obtain...
Improving the energy conversion stability of hybrid solar photovoltaic / wind turbine renewable energy systems
Aşçıoğlu, Berk; Batunlu, Canraş; Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019-8)
In the last few years, renewable energy sources such as wind turbines, photovoltaics, hydropower stations etc. have become widespread because of raising energy needs of the world. Since the fossil fuel consumption excessively has increased, lack of energy has caused the renewable energy requirement. Furthermore, renewable energy has an important role because of the economic and environmental worries. In other words, industrial and inhabitant needs by provided the traditional energy is no longer a successful...
Feasibility of biomass heating system in Middle East Technical University, Northern Cyprus Campus
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (Informa UK Limited, 2016-01-01)
Global interest in using biomass feedstock to produce heat and power is increasing. In this study, RETScreen modelling software was used to investigate the feasibility of biomass heating system in Middle East Technical University, Northern Cyprus Campus. Weiss Kessel Multicratboiler system with 2 MW capacity using rice straw biomass as fuel and 10 units of RBI (R) CB0500 boilers with 144 kW capacity using natural gas as fuel were selected for the proposed biomass heating system. The total cost of the biomas...
Fabrication and characterization of single crystalline silicon solar cells
Es, Fırat; Turan, Raşit; Department of Physics (2010)
The electricity generation using photovoltaic (PV) solar cells is the most viable and promising alternative to the fossil-fuel based technologies which are threatening world’s climate. PV cells directly convert solar energy into electrical power through an absorption process that takes place in a solid state device which is commonly fabricated using semiconductors. These devices can be employed for many years with almost no degradation and maintenance. PV technologies have been diversified in different dire...
