Smart grid applications and technologies in distribution systems

Pehlivanoğlu Gürbüz, Kübra
Smart grid control purposes to rise the percentage of energy production through alternative energy sources like renewable resources and to make consumers to be comprehended in grid actively, is realising importance day by day. Further to that it can help us employment opportunities and improving growth in addition to keep the power on at minimum cost to prosumers, while the participation is elucidated and enabled new products, service and markets, accommodating all generation and storage options and provided the power quality for the range of requires in the 21st century economy by smart grid control. Some methods which are able to ensure the detection, isolation forecast have been developed for load forecasting in Smart Grid Control applications which In scientific research a lot of methods have been proposed to overcome load fluctuations. The purpose of this thesis is to specify the requirement of Smart Grid Technologies in load forecasting. Our objective is to build an accurate load forecasting model in Smart Grid Control for generating reasonable forecasting using previous decades load consumption data with Artificial Neural Network (ANN). The proposed smart grid load forecasting methodology provides an applicable option for developing the perfect balance among reliability, availability, efficiency and cost for Turkey. Present state of the system was simulated in MATLAB ANN tool and 11 years of data was used on distribution lines. In the scope of this thesis, some critical parameters are prescribed as effective parameters for load forecasting. It is seen that the system presented in this study is open to improvements and suggestions to make the system to be able to work confidentially.

Generated power of a solar panel is volatile and susceptible to environmental conditions. In this study, we have analyzed variables affecting the generated power of a 17.5 kW real-world solar power plant with respect to five independent variables over the generated power: irradiance, time of measurement, panel's temperature, ambient temperature and cloudiness of the weather at the time of measurement. After our analysis, we have trained three different models to predict intra-day solar power forecasts of th...
Newton-raphson based load flow analysis of AC/DC distribution systems with distributed generation
Kaya, Ferhat Emre; Güven, Ali Nezih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Increasing concerns about climate change and global pollution rates emphasized the importance of renewable energy resources. Rising pressure to utilize green energy alternatives requires some changes and rearrangements on the available alternative current (AC) oriented electric power system. Moreover, electric charging stations, renewable and distributed electricity sources like battery storage systems, solar power plants use direct current (DC) and additional power conversion is needed for their integratio...
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...
Data Mining-Based Upscaling Approach for Regional Wind Power Forecasting: Regional Statistical Hybrid Wind Power Forecast Technique (RegionalSHWIP)
Ozkan, Mehmet Baris; Karagöz, Pınar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-01-01)
With the increasing need for the energy, the importance of renewable energy sources has also been increasing. In order to include the power produced by the wind into electricity grid in a controlled manner, power prediction has an important role. To produce a reliable wind power forecast, obtaining Wind Power Plants' (WPP) power generation data in real time and constructing the power forecast model with historical production values is a desirable action plan. However, this situation may not be applicable fo...
Short term electricity price forecasting in Turkish electricity market

With the aim for higher economical efficiency, considerable and radical changes have occurred in the worldwide electricity sector since the beginning of 1980s. By that time, the electricity sector has been controlled by the state-owned vertically integrated monopolies which manage and control all generation, transmission, distribution and retail activities and the consumers buy electricity with a price set by these monopolies in that system. After the liberalization and restructuring of the electricity powe...
