Assignment 1

Students are responsible for preparing a paper in order to benchmark renewable support schemes in EU, Japan, Russia, Turkey, UK, and USA and make recommendations for Turkey's future energy policies.

Rule 1. IEEE Conference Paper Template for LaTeX will be used within any LaTeX editor.

Rule 2. Maximum page limit is 4. Tables can be used, but figures are not allowed. A general introduction regarding sections of the paper are discussed in Document 1 and Document 2.

Rule 3. After finishing the paper, a compressed folder containing LaTeX files and named as student number will be sent to kzor@atu.edu.tr. In addition, a portable document file (PDF) of the paper will be uploaded to Academic Plagiarism Detector by creating a student account (Class ID: 24142034 and Enrollment Key: Assignment1; Please note that during upload, students must choose single-file upload as submit option). Students can immediately see their similarity reports and overwrite the reports until the deadline given below. If a similarity report of a paper shows a percentage which equals to or greater than 30% (after the exclusion of bibliography), that paper will not be admitted for the evaluation.

Deadline: 17 April 2020, Friday, 17:00.

Project Work

  • Students are responsible for preparing a project work in order to simulate an off-grid rooftop PV power plant for a duplex apartment in the following coordinates:

    • 37.50404415 35.86275261 (which corresponds to 37°30'14.6"N 35°51'45.9"E).

  • As a guideline, notes regarding design criteria are as follows:

    • Surface area belonging to the duplex apartment is 60 m² (Rectangle: 6 m x 10 m),

    • Students are free to design the apartment's rooms and electrical appliances (AC and DC loads),

    • Students will simulate their genuine design by using a comprehensive PV software chosen by themselves:

      • 27 April 2020, 11:43, 150103012​, PV*SOL,

      • 29 April 2020, 13:58, 160103032, PVSyst,

      •    1 May 2020, 14:19, 150103021, BlueSol,

      •    1 May 2020, 15:35, 150103017, HOMER Pro,

      •    1 May 2020, 15:55, 140103001, RETScreen,

      •    1 May 2020, 16:03, 150103009, pvPlanner.

    • Sizing and selection of PV modules, charge controllers, batteries, inverters will be fulfilled by the students,

    • Students will conduct a feasibility assessment of their design along with investigating current credit alternatives provided by Turkish banks for small-scale renewable energy investments,

    • Students will prepare a presentation that responds all of the above criteria and clarifies each step in detail.

  • Rules that students should follow for the project work:

    • Beamer Presentation Template for LaTeX will be used within any LaTeX editor. The only limit is your own imagination. A general introduction appertaining to Beamer are discussed in Link 1 and Link 2.

    • After finishing the presentation a compressed folder containing LaTeX source files and PDF file both named as student number will be sent to kzor@atu.edu.tr. In addition, a portable document file (PDF) of the paper will be uploaded to Academic Plagiarism Detector by creating a student account (Class ID: 24142034 and Enrollment Key: ProjectWork; Please note that during upload, students must choose single-file upload as submit option). Students can submit once to the assignment and a similarity report will be produced immediately. If a similarity report of a presentation shows a percentage which equals to or greater than 50% (after the exclusion of bibliography), that presentation will not be admitted for the evaluation.

  • Deadline: 29 May 2020, Friday, 17:00. (*Please note that students will present their presentations during the lecture on 1 June 2020.)
