Reducing the cost of electric transmission and distribution systems with wind generation by means of energy storage and demand side management

Bildirici, Mert
Today, wind energy is the most popular renewable energy source and share of wind generation in overall electric power generation is expected to grow significantly for the next years. Considering this increase, energy balance problem will become harder to achieve due to unpredictable and varying nature of wind power. In order to handle with the negative impacts of wind power, it is essential to provide flexibility to power systems. This thesis focuses on the transmission system upgrade deferral for a hypothetical scenario; where a wind generation farm is connected to a near organized industrial zone. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the feasibility of the transmission structure upgrade deferral for the constructed scenario by increasing flexibility of the power system via demand side management and energy storage applications. v Using real generation and load data, proposed applications are examined for different cases. The analysis of the problem and system models are given with simulation results and obtained results are compared and discussed.


Improving the energy conversion stability of hybrid solar photovoltaic / wind turbine renewable energy systems
Aşçıoğlu, Berk; Batunlu, Canraş; Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019-8)
In the last few years, renewable energy sources such as wind turbines, photovoltaics, hydropower stations etc. have become widespread because of raising energy needs of the world. Since the fossil fuel consumption excessively has increased, lack of energy has caused the renewable energy requirement. Furthermore, renewable energy has an important role because of the economic and environmental worries. In other words, industrial and inhabitant needs by provided the traditional energy is no longer a successful...
Reducing the cost of wind resource assessment: using a regional wind power forecasting method for assessment
Ozkan, Mehmet Baris; Karagöz, Pınar (2021-03-01)
Wind energy, with its high potential, has an important place among renewable energy sources. Therefore, the number of investments on wind energy is increasing with new turbine technologies and solutions. For the investors of these technologies, how to determine the location of wind turbines for such investments is a challenging and critical problem. Wind maps of the country are a useful resource to determine high potential locations. However, such maps often present an overview to provide the general pictur...
Assessment of renewable energy based micro-grids for small communities
Sadati, S.M. Sajed; Taylan, Onur; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2016-7)
Deploying renewable energy systems to supply electricity faces many challenges related to cost and variability of the renewable resources. One possible solution to these challenges is to hybridize renewable energy systems with conventional power systems and include energy storage systems. In this study, the feasibility analysis of two cases for electricity generation systems as (i) photovoltaic (PV)-battery-pumped hydro system (PHS) and (ii) PV-wind-battery are presented as a Renewable Energy Micro-Gr...
Determination of wind power potential and optimal wind power plant locations in Turkey
Çetinay, Hale; Güven, Ali Nezih; Tör, Osman Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Due to increased environmental concerns, utilization of the renewable energy, especially the wind power, gains importance. Like developed countries which have set their renewable energy targets for the long term integration, Turkish government has also set the goal as 20 GW of total wind power installed capacity in 2023. In this thesis, the wind power potential in Turkey is analyzed and different cases are studied to determine optimal locations for wind power plant establishment. In order to determine the w...
Clustering River Basins Using Time-Series Data Mining on Hydroelectric Energy Generation.
Arslan, Yusuf; Kucuk, Dilek; Eren, Sinan; Birtürk, Ayşe Nur (2018-09-14)
Hydropower is a significant renewable energy type with a considerable share in energy generation worldwide. As with the other common means of energy generation, hydropower is critical for the reliability and quality of electricity supply. Maintaining the reliability and quality of supply enables meeting the electricity demand of the loads adequately and efficient use of the energy resources, in addition to decreasing the related financial and environmental losses. In this paper, we target at the problem of ...
