Analysing Enhancement of Electricity Generating Capacity with Solar Tracking System of the Most Sunning Region of Turkey

Kemal Akkılıç, Yusuf Selim Ocak, and Musa Yılmaz
Abstract—Despite the increasingly widespread production of electricity from solar energy and despite Turkey is in the sun belt, Turkey cannot used its potential sufficiently effective and widely. Especially, this situation is of more importance for the Southeastern Anatolia Region Turkey’s most sunning area. In this study, among renewable energy resources the generation of electricity from solar energy in terms of both its current potential and production technologies and the solar energy potential of Southeastern Anatolia Region provinces and the degree and method of using this potential to generate electricity have been investigated. Suggestions have been made to benefit from the solar energy in a way of effective and widespread for Southeastern Anatolia Region. Also, a suggestion for convenient place which is 130 m2 and was formed by Karacadağ volcanic eruption and is not used for agriculture and rocky area has been made.

Index Terms—Southeastern anatolia region, solar energy, photovoltaic solar tracker.
