In this research work detailed parallel and series equivalent circuits of a gapped iron-core shunt reactor with discretely distributed gaps are derived. The validity of the recommended equivalent circuits is verified by Finite Element Analysis and laboratory tests. Effects of fringing flux and discretely distributed gaps on inductance parameters and reactor losses are also investigated. Moving Strip Method for discretely distributed gapped shunt reactors is recommended. Two design procedures for shunt reactor with discretely distributed gaps are developed within the scope of this thesis. A simple and practical design approach is also developed which does not need any Finite Element Analysis software. This practical method is very useful for design engineers and researchers. The results of practical design approach are shown to be in good agreement with Finite Element Analysis and experimental work.

Beforehand obtaining a safety operation condition by using daily load curves in transient stability and graphical software for transient stability applications
Öztop, Celal; Ertaş, Arif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In this thesis, relationship between two most important transient stability indices, critical clearing time and generator rotor angle is examined for one machine-infinite bus system and then extended to the multimachine case and is observed to be linear. By using the linear relationship between critical clearing time and generator rotor angle and utilizing the daily load curve, a new preventive method is proposed. The aim of this method is to make all critical clearing times longer than the relay and circui...
