Smart structures and their applications on active vibration control: Studies in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, METU
Şahin, Melin; Yaman, Yavuz; Nalbantoglu, Volkan; Ulker, Fatma Demet; Caliskan, Tarkan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-08-01)
This work presents the theoretical and experimental studies conducted in Aerospace Engineering Department of Middle East Technical University on smart structures with particular attention given to the structural modelling characteristics and active suppression of in-vacuo vibrations. The smart structures considered in these analyses are finite and flat aluminium cantilever beam-like (called as smart beam) and plate-like (called as smart fin) structures with surface bonded lead-zirconate-titanate patches. Fi...
Smart sensing system for enhanceing reliability of power electronic devices used in wind turbines
Teay, S. H.; Batunlu, C.; Albarbar, A. (2017-06-01)
Reliability of modern power systems, in particular those use wind and solar energies, is affected by the relatively short lifetime of the associated power electronic converters (PECs). Thermal stress has been identified as one of the commonest causes for failures in PECs. However, existing thermal monitoring systems are expensive, bulky and with no intelligent capabilities, which limit their full acceptance as monitoring and control tools in operational power plants. This work presents autonomous and inexpe...
Intelligent infrastructures: anatomy of the METU Campus
Ağırsoy, Ömer Faruk; Savaş Sargın, Ayşen; Department of Architecture (2022-2-02)
Designed and constructed with the ambition of generating “a small city” in the 1960s, Middle East Technical University (METU) Campus is facilitated with a sophisticated infrastructural design. This thesis focuses on the complex infrastructural systems, needs, and problems of the campus. The goal is to re-investigate the university campus as an early model for modern, sustainable, and liveable urban environments. This thesis provides documentation and representation of campus infrastructure from campus scale...
Smart Wearable Technology for Health Tracking: What Are the Factors that Affect Their Use?
Pancar, Tansu; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (Springer Nature, 2021-01-01)
Wearable devices are essential tools for personalized healthcare. Their usage is steadily expanding due to increasing capabilities and levels of accuracy. They are used by consumers for numerous reasons, ranging from measuring physical activity, tracking health status or just competing with friends based on activity data. Different user groups have different motivations such as losing weight, sleep tracking, fertility tracking or gait monitoring. In recent years, capabilities of smart wearable devices incre...
Smart grid applications and technologies in distribution systems
Pehlivanoğlu Gürbüz, Kübra; Sevaioğlu, Osman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
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...
