My personal efforts continue to present the best power grids and tools that will help to design them and invest in them.
Some voluntary researchers joined in some part of the research and development activities during this long-term research and development projects.
The current titles of the proposed robots and platforms are
Power Plant Owner (PPO)
Power Plant Developer (PPD) or Power Plant Engineer (PPE)
Global Power Prediction Systems (GP2S)
Original Anatolian Honeybees Investment System (OAHIS)
The latest scientific publications about them are as follows:
