© 2022 IEEE.Dynamic models of power plants may change during its operation due to physical processes and human error. Inaccurate dynamic power plant models may affect the operation and planning of power systems. Hence, keeping the model updated is crucial. Traditionally, dynamic models of power plants are calibrated by offline staged tests. Recently, PMU based remote calibration techniques are developed in attempt to calibrating the dynamic models remotely and reducing the frequency of offline calibration. This paper presents the implementation of PMU based dynamic model calibration of Type-4 Wind Turbine Generators by using the Ensemble Kalman Filter. The implementation is done by using PSS®E in PythonTM environment, and validated by using WSCC-9 Bus System.

Modeling and investigation of fault ride through capability of variable speed wind turbines
Koç, Erkan; Güven, Ali Nezih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Technological improvements on wind energy systems with governmental supports have increased the penetration level of wind power into the grid in recent years. The high level of penetration forces the wind turbines stay connected to the grid during the disturbances in order to enhance system stability. Moreover, power system operators must revise their grid codes in parallel with these developments. This work is devoted to the modeling of variable speed wind turbines and the investigation of fault ride troug...
Stochastic modelling of wind energy generation
Alişar, İbrahim; Sevaioğlu, Osman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In this thesis work, electricty generation modeling of the wind energy -one type of the renewable energy sources- is studied. The wind energy characteristics and the distribution of wind speed in a specific region is also examined. In addition, the power curves of the wind turbines are introduced and the relationship between the wind speed and wind power is explained. The generation characteristics of the wind turbines from various types of producers are also investigated. In this study, the main wind power...
Parameter Estimation of Electric Vehicles for Improved Range Prediction
Saglam, Berkay; Bostancı, Emine; Göl, Murat (2021-01-01)
© 2021 IEEE.In order to improve performance of range estimation of electric vehicles, parameters that affect energy consumption should be determined accurately. This paper presents a parameter estimation methodology for electric vehicles based on least squares method. In this study, the power and angular velocity of wheels are measured from the vehicle directly. In addition to those, the directional velocity data is extracted from the GPS signal, in order to avoid the parameter dependency between the angula...
Dynamic modelling and simulation of a wind turbine
Altuğ, Ayşe Hazal; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2015)
In this thesis, a dynamic model for a horizontal axis wind turbine is developed for an upwind configuration using the MATLAB/Simulink environment. Blade Element Momentum Theory is used to model the rotor. It is assumed that the rotor blades are rigid and wind speed is uniform. Aerodynamic and gravitational forces are calculated as distributed loads. Verification of the model is done by using the LMS Samtech, Samcef for Wind Turbines software. Aerodynamic properties of the blades, sectional loads and moments...
LCL-Filter Design for Low-Voltage High-Power Grid-Tied Voltage-Source Converter Considering Various Damping Methods
Kantar, Emre; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2016-06-30)
The limited switching frequency, size and weight concerns, and the stringent limits for the injected grid current harmonics challenge the implementation of LCL grid filters for low-voltage multi-megawatt (multi-MW) renewable energy converters. Traditional design procedures of such filters employed in low power and high switching frequency converters may not hold for a multi-MW filter interfacing a low-voltage converter switching at low frequency to the electric grid. This paper proposes an LCL-filter design...
