SAVAŞ UYGUR, CANSU
Next-generation electrochemical applications have faced a challenge to be improved in terms of performance with the increasing demand for new technologies. Although oxide-based active materials are widely used material groups in the electrochemical applications, including batteries, electrolyzers, capacitors and electrochemical catalysis, research in nitride/ phosphide/ boride/ sulfide-based active materials are increasing trend topic to overcome the shortcomings of the metal oxide groups. Sulfide-based active materials show remarkable capacitive and electrocatalytic behavior, which has the potential to be replaced with their commercial counterparts. However, the reaction mechanism behind the capacitive and electrocatalytic performance of certain parts of this group either has not been understood completely or even studied/published. In this study, sulfide-based active materials and/or their composites were synthesized and compounds that were not reported in the literature before were used to improve the electrochemical behavior, including reaction mechanisms and performance. Structural and morphological characterization of synthesized active materials was carried out by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and particle size analysis (PSA). Energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and Rietveld analysis were used for the chemical analysis. Electrochemical characterization was performed by cyclic voltammetry (CV), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and constant current/voltage tests focusing on the capacitive and electrocatalytic performance of the active materials.

Optimization of printed circuit board manufacturing: Integrated modeling and algorithms
Altinkemer, K; Kazaz, B; Köksalan, Mustafa Murat; Moskowitz, H (2000-07-16)
This paper focuses on an integrated optimization problem that is designed to improve productivity in printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing. We examine the problems of allocating the components to feeders and sequencing the placement of these components on the PCBs, populated by a rotary head machine with surface mount technology. While previous research focuses on sequencing the placement and only considers this subproblem as part of an interrelated set of problems, we provide an integrated approach whi...
Computational Design and Analysis of Efficient Couplers for Nano-optical Links
Altinoklu, A.; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2019-01-01)
We present rigorous optimization and design of efficient couplers to improve optical transmission along nanowires. It is well-known that nanowires are excellent tools to transmit electromagnetic power in nano-optical systems, while couplers become inevitable at critical locations, particularly in input/output regions and at corners if nanowires are bended. We use genetic algorithms supported by fast full-wave solutions to efficiently and accurately obtain effective couplers in alternative scenarios. The des...

Computationally efficient screening and forecasting tools can offer faster decision-making and value- creation opportunities for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) operations without requiring a high-fidelity reservoir model. In this paper, we present a data-driven modeling approach utilizing numerical models and neural networks (ANN) to screen EOR methods in a rapid way. Numerical modeling is employed to generate the data for the training of the neural-network based data-driven model. It is aimed to develop compr...
Prototype testing of a new passive energy dissipation device for seismic retrofit of bridges
Shaban, Nefize; Caner, Alp (2016-09-29)
© 2016 Shaban and Caner.The increasingly demanding performance requirements trigger the development of new devices to eliminate the limitations concerning the post-earthquake performance of available seismic protection systems. The prerequisite for economical earthquake-resistant bridges is the structures’ capacity to absorb and dissipate a large amount of seismic energy. A widely considered strategy for enhancing this capacity is through the use of passive energy dissipation systems for seismic protection ...
Classification of Grid Connected Transformer less PV Inverters with a Focus on the Leakage Current Characteristics and Extension of Topology Families
Ozkan, Ziya; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2015-01-01)
Grid-connected transformerless photovoltaic (PV) inverters (TPVIs) are increasingly dominating the market due to their higher efficiency, lower cost, lighter weight, and reduced size when compared to their transformer based counterparts. However, due to the lack of galvanic isolation in the low voltage grid interconnections of these inverters, the PV systems become vulnerable to leakage currents flowing through the grounded star point of the distribution transformer, the earth, and the distributed parasitic...
