The liberalization of the Turkish electricity sector: a simulation analysis

Bahçe, Serdal
The Turkish Electricity System has gone through a liberalization process. This study aims to analyze the possible outcomes of this process by using a simulation framework. First, we look at the basics of new market design and focus on international evidence. Second, the theoretical and empirical literature about the liberalization of the electricity sector is reviewed. Then, the structure of our model, Turkish Electricity System Simulation Model (TESS), is summarized. In this model, it is assumed that a spot market is formed and all the agents in the sector operate in this market. Using this model, the effects of various factors, like industry structure, consumer participation and regulation, upon the performance of the spot market are analyzed. Moreover, in simulation case studies, uniform and a non-uniform pricing mechanisms are compared.


Temperature in Turkey and Turkish day ahead electricity market prices : modeling and forecasting
Ünlü, Kamil Demirberk; Sezer, Ali Devin; Department of Financial Mathematics (2012)
One of the key steps of the liberalization of the Turkish electricity market has been the estab- lishment of PMUM (Turkish day ahead electricity market). The aim of this study is to explore the dynamics of electricity prices observed in this market and their relation with temperature observed in Turkey. The electricity price process is studied as a univariate process and the same process is studied along with temperature together as a two-dimensional process. We give a fairly complete model of temperature. ...
Measuring the efficiency of the turkish electric distribution sector using stochastic frontier analysis
Çelen, Aydın; İyigün, Cem; Department of Industrial Engineering (2011)
This study analyzes the technical efficiencies of Turkish electricity distribution companies (21 in total) throughout 2002 and 2009. For this aim, we used six different model specifications, all of which are generated from two different Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) models (Battese ve Coelli (1992&1995)). At the end of the estimations of the models, it has been seen that the signs and significance levels of the coefficient estimations are very consistent and satisfactory in all models. We also observed...
Determination of optimum values for voltage setpoints of power stations in Turkey
Elma, İsmail; Güven, Ali Nezih; Tör, Osman Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Voltage control is performed in three hierarchical levels in Turkish power system: primary, secondary and tertiary voltage control. Primary and secondary voltage controls are defined as the regulation of the voltage at the generator terminal and at the high voltage busbar of the power plant according to the pre-determined setpoints. The determination of the voltage setpoints for the power plants, which is defined as the tertiary voltage control, is performed by the operators in National and Regional Load Di...
Optimal determination and allocation of secondary frequency control reserve in a market environment considering ACE criteria /
Geren, Ali; Güven, Ali Nezih; Tör, Osman Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Frequency control in Turkey is realized under four main tasks, namely; primary, secondary, tertiary frequency control and time control according to European Network of Transmission Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) regulations. As being a part of an interconnected electricity network, secondary frequency control mechanism, which is realized by the utilization of an Automatic Generation Control (AGC) System, plays a crucial role in the achievement of two important goals. One of them is maintaining the freq...
Modeling electricity demand in Turkey for 1998-2011
Sayın, İpek; Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Department of Economics (2013)
This thesis estimates the quarterly electricity demand of Turkey. First of all proper seasonal time series model are found for the variables: electricity demand, temperature, gross domestic product and electricity price. After the right seasonal time series model are found Hylleberg, Engle, Granger and Yoo (1990) test is applied to each variable. The results of the test show that seasonal unit roots exist for the electricity price even it cannot be seen at the graph. The other variables have no seasonal uni...
