Impact of high-level distributed generation penetration on the transmission system transient stability

Kurt, Burçak
This thesis investigates the impact of high-level penetration of distributed generation especially from the renewable energy sources on the transient stability of the transmission system. Distributed generation is a source of electric power connected to the distribution network or on the consumer side. It is expected that distributed generation grows significantly by the increasing environmental concerns and deregulation in the market. As soon as the increasing penetration level, distributed generation starts to influence the distribution system as well as the transmission system. To investigate the impact of distributed generation with different penetration levels on the transmission system transient stability, simulation scenarios are created and simulations are run on the basis of these scenarios by the implementation of the different distributed generation technologies to the “New England” test system. Stability indicators are observed to assess the impact on the transient stability. Results are presented throughout the thesis and the impact of the different distributed generation technologies and the different penetration levels on the transient stability is discussed by comparing the stability indicators.


Impact of defected ground structures on the bandwidth of quarter wave impedance transformers and branch line hybrids
Polater, Ahmet Mert; Nesimoglu, Tayfun (Wiley, 2016-05-01)
In this article, impedance transformers and branch line hybrids are selected to demonstrate the impact of defected ground structures on the operational bandwidth of microwave circuits. Three different branch line hybrids are studied with simulations and laboratory measurements, these are; a standard branch line hybrid, one using tapered lines and another one using both tapered lines and DGS. Based on these results, an optimum design in terms of location, size and number of DGS was proposed to achieve the wi...
Improvements to neural network based restoration in optical networks
Türk, Fethi; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
Performance of neural network based restoration of optical networks is evaluated and a few possible improvements are proposed. Neural network based restoration is simulated with optical link capacities assigned by a new method. Two new improvement methods are developed to reduce the neural network size and the restoration time of severed optical connections. Cycle based restoration is suggested, which reduces the neural network structure by restoring the severed connections for each optical node, iterativel...
Impact of rapid thermal annealing on impurities removal efficiency from silicon carbide for optoelectronic applications
Barbouche, M.; Zaghouani, R. Benabderrahmane; Benammar, N. E.; Khirouni, K.; Turan, Raşit; Ezzaouia, H. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-11-27)
Impurities are of crucial interest in optoelectronic devices as they affect carrier lifetimes and electrical properties. In view of that, it is important to incorporate certain processing steps to reduce impurities effect on final devices. The aim of this work is to enhance silicon carbide SiC purity for silicon passivation. Low cost method of SiC purification is presented. This method combines three main steps consisting of formation of porous silicon carbide layers by acid vapor etching followed by a phot...

Speed governors have critical importance on hydroelectric power plants, which are adjusted to the rotating speed of hydroelectric generation based on load demand of the grid. The rotating speed is the main factor to balance power generation and load demand. The well-designed controller is needed to control speed governors with high accuracy. A well-defined model is needed to obtain desired control structure. Therefore, in this study, initially, the mathematical model of a hydroelectric power plant is obtain...
Congestion-driven transmission planning considering incentives for generator investments
Tör, Osman Bülent; Güven, Ali Nezih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
This thesis study focuses on transmission expansion planning (TEP) problem for restructured power systems and addresses challenges specifically in countries where electricity market is in developing phase after liberalization of power industry for establishing a competitive market, like Turkey. A novel multi-year TEP approach is developed which considers generation investment cost and transmission congestion level in the planning horizon. The model assesses the impact of generation investments on TEP proble...
