Ertuğrul Çubuk is a master’s student in Mechanical Engineering at Middle East Technical
University. He received his B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Middle East Technical University in
2019. He focuses on developing particle-based solar thermal receivers, solar heat for industrial processes
and thermal analysis of concentrated photovoltaics.
He participated in “Development of Solar Drying Technologies for the Valorization of Sludge”
project (G. No. 217M062) and INSHIP project (G. No. 731287) as a project assistant. Over the past years,
he received operator status for the PTC simulator and the solar simulator. He is currently assisting a
concentrated photovoltaics project in terms of conducting experiments for validation, and ERANET
EcoSun project in terms of conducting experiments under concentrated light using the solar simulator.
