Technical evaluation of synchronous interconnection between Mashriq Countries /

Uysal, Gökhan Yasin
The Electrical Interconnection among The Eight Countries Project (EIJLLPST Project) has been initiated by Mashriq countries (Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq) and Turkey. The objectives of the EIJLLPST Project are to investigate necessary investments to reinforce the existing interconnections and to increase transfer capacities between EIJLLPST countries. This study aims to evaluate the transfer capacities of the existing and planned interconnections between these countries through computer simulations. For this purpose, power system models of each country are obtained and combined. Then, load flow (including contingency analysis), short circuit, transient stability and eigenvalue analysis are conducted on EIJLLPST power system model. Technically acceptable transfer capacities among EIJLLPST countries are determined considering the system security. New interconnection lines and transmission investments needed for transmission system security and increasing transfer capacities among these countries are also discussed and presented.


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...
Assessment of the effect of hydroelectric power plants' governor settings on low frequency inter area oscillations
GENCOGLU, C; Tor, O.B.; Cebeci, E.; Yilmaz, O.; Güven, Ali Nezih (2010-10-28)
The Turkish TSO (TEIAS) has been leading a project that aims the synchronous interconnected operation of the Turkish Power System and the ENTSO-E CESA (former UCTE) System. For this purpose, this study concentrates on the specific problems related to the electromechanical systems of large size hydroelectric power plants regarding low frequency inter area oscillations, which are prone to occur once the interconnected operation is established. The expected frequency of inter area oscillations after interconne...
Public Administration in the Middle East and North Africa
Dixon, John; Bhuiyan, Shahjahan; Ustuner, Yilmaz (2018-01-01)
This article highlights the objective of the special issue which is to understand the status of public administration in six profiled countries - Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Turkey - in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The special issue explores public administration as a concept-the diversity of guiding general principles that determines how governments administer the affairs of state in the context of their governance frameworks-and as praxis-the diversity of pub...
Design of a special protection scheme and supplementary controls regarding HVDC back to back interconnection between Turkey and Georgia
Tanıdır, Özgür; Güven, Ali Nezih; Tör, Osman Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
HVDC Back-to-Back interconnection between Turkey and Georgia is operational since November 2013. Previous feasibility analysis regarding to this project has shown that depending on the amount of power transfer between parties and loading conditions, there might be transmission bottlenecks and problems observed in Turkish Power System. In this respect, special protection coordination is required to maintain reliable and sustainable operation. In this thesis, design of a special protection scheme that coordin...
Subordination of the Arab regional system : the cases of Egypt & Iraq
Işıksal, Hüseyin; Dağı, İhsan Duran; Department of International Relations (2012)
This study attempts to analyze the ‘subordination’ of the Arab regional system by giving special reference to Egypt and Iraq, as the two most prominent Arab countries that challenged the established Westphalian state system in the Middle East. Through introducing the concept of ‘subordination’, the research seeks to answer the questions of ‘what makes the Middle East different than other regions?’ and ‘how the Middle East subordinated to the international system?’ The conduct of the thesis is based upon thr...
