Veysel Yildiz's research involves the application of numerical modelling, control theory, and optimization methods to contribute to scientific and technical advances in hydropower plant design. He developed a MATLAB toolbox (called HYPER) of run-of-river (RoR) power plants, which produce hydroelectricity using river flow instead of water stored in a reservoir. He has developed the HYPER-MORDM approach (HYPER - Many-objective robust decision making ) to help optimize the design and operation of power plants. The results of his research significantly enhance our ability to determine which design is most robust and reliable for given site conditions under deep uncertainty.
Key topics: Numerical Modelling, Control Theory, Power Plant Optimisation.
