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 irradiation (GHI), direct normal irradiation (DNI), and global tilted irradiation (GTI) were recorded since 2010, 2013 and 2016, respectively. Physical threshold and quality envelope tests revealed that lower-than- expected GHI values were measured in some periods. Thus, erroneous GHI data was estimated using the Erbs model and measured DNI data. While up to 2 hours of missing GHI data were filled by linear interpolation, more extended missing data were filled by estimated GHI. Both measured and constructed GHI data were compared with satellite-based GHI data downloaded from the Photovoltaic Geographical Information System (PVGIS) for the time period 2010-2016. The results indicated that the average relative root-mean-square error (rRMSE) of daily total GHI reduced from 34.63% to 17.77% after the data filing process. The rRMSE decreased to 8.78% for the annual mean daily total GHI data. Additionally, GTI was estimated using the isotropic sky-diffuse model, and it was compared with measured GTI. RMSE of daily total estimated GTI was 22.41%, whereas satellite-based GTI had an RMSE of 20.81%. Finally, energy yield was estimated for 1 MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) plant using satellite-based and estimated GTI.

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...
Assessment of renewable energy based micro-grids for small communities
Sadati, S.M. Sajed; Taylan, Onur; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2016-7)
Deploying renewable energy systems to supply electricity faces many challenges related to cost and variability of the renewable resources. One possible solution to these challenges is to hybridize renewable energy systems with conventional power systems and include energy storage systems. In this study, the feasibility analysis of two cases for electricity generation systems as (i) photovoltaic (PV)-battery-pumped hydro system (PHS) and (ii) PV-wind-battery are presented as a Renewable Energy Micro-Gr...
ODTÜ Kuzey Kıbrıs Kampusu'nde Bir Güneş Fotovoltaik Santralinin P50/P90 Ampirik Yöntemle Analizi

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 Helio...
Wide-band perfect metamaterial absorber for solar cells applications
Rufangura, Patrick; Sabah, Cumali; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2015-8)
Global adoption of solar photovoltaic (PV) cells as a sustainable substitute to fossil fuel technologies has been impeded by its low efficiency. Generally, efficiency of these devices strongly depends on their ability to absorb radiations of electromagnetic waves incident on them. Their low absorptivity provides a challenge. Metamaterials (MTM) based solar cells offer an opportunity for increasing the system efficiency by enhancing the total absorbed solar radiation incident on solar PV cells. In this thesi...
Stochastic wind-thermal generation coordination for Turkish day-ahead electricity market /
Aydoğdu, Aycan; Güven, Ali Nezih; Tör, Osman Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Uncertainties in wind power forecast, day-ahead and imbalance prices for the next day possess a great deal of risk to the profit of generation companies (GENCOs) participating in a day-ahead electricity market. GENCOs are exposed to imbalance penalties in the balancing market for any mismatch between their day-ahead power bids and real-time generations. Proper coordination of wind generation with thermal generation reduces this risk associated with wind uncertainty. This thesis proposes an optimal bidding a...
