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 power system, and as a PQ analyzer to monitor the PQ events and parameters, permanently. Furthermore, the algorithms of flicker and harmonic current contributions at a point of common coupling can be embedded on this MPP, to determine the individual contributions of different loads supplied from the same bus. The operational features of the developed MPP have been tested on the Turkish electricity transmission system and its interfaces with the distribution system by installing 450 MPPs and integrating them with a monitoring and control center. The proposed all-in-one MPP can therefore meet the multiple requirements of the power SOs to serve the needs of modern electricity markets and convert an ordinary electricity system to a smart grid.

This paper describes mobile power quality monitoring systems developed to carry out extensive power quality (PQ) measurements nationwide, in addition to instrumentation and measurement technologies used in those systems. The developed systems have been used to measure the PQ of the Turkish Electricity Transmission System, which is among the largest transmission systems in Europe. To make trouble-shooting studies at the problematic measurement points in terms of PQ different measuring instruments and a wide ...
A Kalman Filter Based Approach for Light Flicker Evaluation of Power Systems
Kose, Neslihan; Salor, Ozgul; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2009-01-01)
In this paper, a Kalman filtering based approach is proposed to measure the light flicker of the electricity transmission systems. Analytical expressions of the instantaneous light flicker sensation are obtained beginning from a voltage waveform and these expressions are used to obtain a flicker estimation method based on the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) flickermeter. In the proposed method, the frequency domain components of the waveform are obtained by Kalman filtering and these compone...

In this paper a nationwide power quality monitoring system, which computes and collects PQ parameters and the required waveforms at a power quality monitoring center for both the purposes of early warning and later analysis of power quality of the whole transmission system, is presented. The system consists of three basic units: PQ monitors connected to various transformer substations all over the country; a national PQ monitoring center which communicates with all PQ monitors regularly, receives PQ data an...
