Nanocrystalline dye sensitized solar cells (DSSC) technology continues to develop as a better alternative to the silicon based solar cells, which are commercialized. This study aims at finding low cost and highly efficient DSSC design and production methods via examination of effects of both photoanode structure and photon-electron generation mechanism on photoanode layers. This will contribute to the commercialization of DSSC technology. Photoanode structure is examined in four groups; transparent conducti...

Koubaa, Ahmed; Krichen, Lotfi; Ouali, Abderrazak (2011-09-10)
This paper focuses on the design of fuel cell and electrolyzer emulators used for photovoltaic applications. These emulators are based on power electronic circuits. The reference values of the two emulators are taken from fuel cell and electrolyzer mathematical models. In this study, proportional integral regulators are used. A power management is established to ensure a balance between production and consumption. The simulation results show the good performances of the two emulators to produce the electric...
Design of Compact Nano-Optical Couplers Involving Dielectric Nanorods
Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Yazar, Sirin; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2018-06-01)
We present optimization and design of nano-optical couplers involving dielectric nanorods. Using tens of elements, optimal array configurations are found to produce alternative responses that can be digitized. For realistic simulations, the couplers are modeled as three-dimensional structures and analyzed via surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Initial results are presented demonstrate the feasibility of compact but effective couplers with desired responses.
Design of fully integrated milliwatt thermoelectric energy harvesting interface circuit for wireless body sensor networks
Demir, Süleyman Mahircan; Muhtaroğlu, Ali; Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020-9)
Wireless body sensor networks have drawn significant attention for providing out-of-hospital diagnosis and remote abnormality monitoring, which are vitally important for millions of people suffering from chronic diseases. Batteries powering these sensor networks hurt their mobility and longevity due to their bulkiness and down-time during charging or replacement. Therefore, this study focuses on thermoelectric energy harvesting from body heat, and targets eventual replacement of batteries by generating powe...
