This paper describes an enhanced monitoring and forecast system for the electrical power generated from wind in Turkey. Wind power plant (WPP) owners, transmission system operator, distribution system operators, and renewable energy experts are the shareholders of this system. The developed monitoring and forecast system is composed of wind electricity analyzers and reference wind masts, one for each WPP, a Wind-Electric Power Monitoring and Forecast Center (WPMFC) equipped with database, data processing, and application servers, and the associated monitoring and forecast software. All shareholders can communicate with the developed WPMFC in order to retrieve preprocessed wind-electric power forecast data and power quality data, through the IP network according to their authorization level. The electrical and meteorological raw data can also be retrieved for postprocessing. The developed system is based on global positioning system (GPS) synchronized, real-time field measurements taken from each WPP, in addition to the use of mesoscale numerical weather prediction models. Instantaneous electrical and meteorological quantities of each WPP can be monitored continuously through the WPMFC. The forecast system employs physical, statistical, and hybrid models combining both approaches. Some sample monitoring and forecast results are given in the paper to illustrate the benefits and abilities of the developed system.

This paper is devoted to the design and implementation of a multipurpose platform (MPP) for power system monitoring and analysis. This MPP is a novel device, which combines the abilities of a power quality (PQ) analyzer, an event logger, a synchronized phasor measurement unit, and an interarea oscillation identifier, all in one device. The multiple functions of the proposed MPP can serve the needs of the power system operators (SOs) as a wide-area monitoring system to observe the states and stability of the...

This paper describes countrywide electrical power quality (PQ) assessments of the Turkish Electricity Transmission System through a genuine PQ database. The database stores the output of mobile PQ measurement systems which are established at 172 transformer substations of the transmission system. At 601 measurement points in these substations, which are potentially critical in terms of PQ, measurements are carried out by the mobile systems for a period of 1 week. PQ parameters defined in the IEC-61000-4-30 ...

This work is devoted to taking nationwide power quality (PQ) snapshots of the Turkish Electricity Transmission System, via field measurements carried out by application speck mobile monitoring equipment. This project is carried out as a subproject of the National Power Quality Project of Turkey, and is aimed at investigating the general status of electric power quality and reactive power flows in the Electricity Transmission System all over the country. Critical points will then be selected to place permane...
Advanced Active Power Filter to Improve Power Quality
Gurguiatu, Gelu; Balanuta, Ciprian; Rosu, Emil; Munteanu, Toader; Dumitrescu, Mariana; Raducan, Elena (2011-09-10)
This paper presents a three-phase Active Power Filter (APF) to improve grid power quality. Starting from indirect control strategy which was used only for three legs - three wires it is proposed in this paper to be used a bridge with three legs - four wire. The new control strategy it was named extended indirect control strategy. The extension consists in passing from the control of a three wire active power filter to the control of a four wire active power filter. The proposed active power filter can compe...
Hydro inflow forecasting and virtual power plant pricing in the Turkish electricity market
Çabuk, Sezer; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Danışoğlu, Seza; Department of Financial Mathematics (2016)
Hydro inflow forecasting with most accurate quantitative models is a very crucial subject for effective hydro optimization, virtual power plant pricing, volume risk management and weather derivatives pricing in the Turkish electricity market. Predicting increase or decrease in hydro inflow, seasonal characteristics of hydrological years such as wet, dry or normal, allow the decision makers to economically use water for optimal periods, quantify of volume risk and determine effective portfolio management strat...
