TOWARDS AN ECO-FRIENDLY ERA IN ENERGY
Turkey's electricity import, in the first quarter of this year, has reached to $30 million 594 thousand 671. While there is a 36% decrease in electricity import compared to last year same quarter, to reduce these rates much further, IUE engineers developed an electricity generation system by using eco-friendly and renewable energy sources.
Serhat Mirkan Acar, Burak Kıvçak, Anıl Boztepe, and Mert Şensoydan, Students of Department of Electrical and Electronics, Faculty of Engineering, Izmir University of Economics (IUE), developed electricity generation system that works with wind and solar energy. Serhat Mirkan Acar gave information about their project and said that they aimed to generate electricity the most cheaply and eco-friendly way possible for homes, summer homes, farm lands that have no electricity. “Even though we live in a geography where we should be utilizing wind and solar energy efficiently, we fail to do so. On the other hand, our foreign-source dependency in energy is increasing day by day. It is very much possible to generate energy by using solar panel, capacitor (device for storing charge), wind turbine that we can develop on our own, and a charge controller. This device makes the energy generated reach the most efficient level. The software we developed allows us to transfer all the data to the user’s mobile and computer. The user, then, is able to see the electricity generated, energy stored and used instantly. And, this is all controlled remotely,” said Acar.
‘System, ready to use’
Acar stated that they developed software, simulations and made calculations for regions where the system would be used at, and he said that they wanted to prevent the country’s foreign-source dependency in energy.
