new electric arc furnace (EAF)-specific model based on field measurements of instantaneous furnace voltages and currents has been proposed. This model presents the dynamic behavior of the EAF system, including all parts, i.e., the EAF transformer, the secondary circuit, the electrode movements, and the arc. It consists of a cascade connected variable-resistance and -inductance combination to represent the time variation at the fundamental frequency and a current source in parallel with it to inject the harmonics and interharmonics of the EAF current. The model takes into account several typical tap-to-tap periods of the specific EAF operation. This model is particularly advantageous for power quality (PQ) analysis and development of flexible alternating current transmission system solutions for PQ problem mitigation of a given busbar supplying single- or multi-EAF installations. The validity of the proposed model has been verified by comparing EMTDC/Power Systems Computer-Aided Design simulations of the model with the field measurements. The results obtained have shown quite satisfactory correlation between the proposed model and the actual EAF operation.

A New Flicker Contribution Tracing Method Based on Individual Reactive Current Components of Multiple EAFs at PCC
Altintas, Erinc; Salor, Oezguel; ÇADIRCI, IŞIK; Ermiş, Muammer (2009-10-08)
In this paper, a new flicker contribution tracing method has been proposed to determine the individual flicker contributions of multiple electric arc furnace (EAF) loads to the flicker measured at the point of common coupling (PCC). The proposed method decouples the flicker contribution of the interconnected electricity system from the individual contributions of the loads connected to the measured PCC, using the individual current variations of the loads, and the estimated short-circuit system impedance. I...
Online Characterization of Interharmonics and Harmonics of AC Electric Arc Furnaces by Multiple Synchronous Reference Frame Analysis
Uz-Logoglu, Eda; Salor, Ozgul; Ermiş, Muammer (2016-05-01)
In this paper, a multiple synchronous reference frame (MSRF) analysis framework is developed to determine the positive-and negative-sequence components of all interharmonic and harmonic currents produced by alternating current electric arc furnace (AC EAF) installations, which can be considered as balanced but asymmetrical three-phase, three-wire loads on the power system. The aim of developing the MSRF analysis framework is twofold; deep understanding of the EAF characteristics, and fast and accurate gener...

In this research work, a multiple synchronous reference frame (MSRF)-based analysis method, used together with exponential smoothing (ES) to accurately obtain the time-varying harmonics and interharmonics of electric arc furnace (EAF) currents, is proposed. The proposed method has been implemented on NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960 graphics card for the parallel processing of all harmonics and interharmonics so that real-time processing of the EAF currents obtained from a measurement point of the electricity transmi...
