Large investments in renewable energy systems have some financial risks, and energy exceedance probabilities are required to find the expected range of energy yield values. In this study, P50/P90 analysis was done for a 1 MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant in METU NCC using the System Advisor Model (SAM) software. Three different transposition models were used, which are the isotropic sky-diffuse, HDKR, and Perez models. Photovoltaic Geographical Information System-Surface Solar Radiation Dataset Heliosat (PVGISSARAH) database was used as the long-term satellite-based data, which includes the time period 2005-2016 with hourly time resolution, and three different typical meteorological year (TMY) datasets were used to compare the results with P50 values. Actual energy yield data of the years 2016 and 2017 were also compared. Interannual variability of global horizontal irradiation (GHI) was found as about 2.21%. According to the comparison of TMY and P50 values, it was found that average TMY underpredicted the annual GHI by 5.15%, and the energy yield values by 6.77%, 6.86%, and 6.83% for the isotropic, HDKR, and Perez models, respectively. Normal distribution assumption was also compared with the empirical method, and P50 value was underpredicted by 0.43% and 0.93% on average for GHI and energy yield, respectively. On the other hand, Normal CDF overpredicted P90 values than the empirical CDF by 2.61% and 3.93% for GHI and the energy yield, respectively. The overall uncertainty of energy yield was found as about 7.08%. The levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) also varied by 3.50% on average, and the non-exceedance probability values were obtained with respect to the energy yield.

Installing large scales of solar energy introduces some financial risks for the investors since the solar resource is variable. Thus, a long-term energy yield estimation is needed to see the variability of the solar resource. This study aims to see the relation between long-term trends of global horizontal irradiation (GHI) with the energy yield and the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE). Probability of exceedance (POE) values were found to assess the bankability of installing a solar PV power plant. Diff...
Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi Kuzey Kıbrıs Kampusu'nde Yerinde Güneş Radyasyonu Verilerinin Kalite Değerlendirmesi ve Küresel Eğik Işınlama Tahmini

Financial institutions require bankable datasets to guarantee investments in large-scale solar energy projects, reducing the overall uncertainty of energy yield estimates. Long-term satellite-based data is mostly available globally; however, their systematic errors and bias should be removed by integrating quality-checked ground measurements if available. In this study, a quality assessment was done to detect erroneous/ missing data points using several quality-control tests. In METU NCC, global horizontal ...

Ercan, Noyan; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
The objective of this thesis is to develop a decision support tool to assess the feasibility of a hydro electrical power plant (HEPP) investment option by estimating its profitability under various scenarios. The decision support tool may help the decision makers to understand critical parameters that affect the internal rate of return (IRR) of a HEPP investment, create realistic scenarios by assigning different values to these parameters and monitor profitability under various scenarios. The information an...
Day ahead markets
Kütaruk, Kaan; Sevaioğlu, Osman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
Day Ahead Market is a mechanism in electricity markets for adjusting the supply-demand energy and capacity balance by providing bids one day before the clearing. Market operator needs to know the available energy and capacity for reaching minimal-cost supply-demand balance one day earlier than the market has been cleared. Minimizing cost of the electricity and capacity during 24 hours of a day requires accurate information concerning the available electricity and capacity. Day-ahead marketing activity is pe...
Capacity trading in electricity markets
Çubuklu, Ömer; Sevaioğlu, Osman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In electricity markets, capacity cost must be determined in order to make capacity trading. In this thesis, capacity cost and the factors deriving the capacity cost are studied. First, fixed capacity cost of power plants is examined. Direct and indirect costs of fixed capacity cost are detailed with respect to different types of power plants and the impact of these factors to the capacity cost is given. Second, interconnection and system utilization costs of transmission and distribution system are consider...
