A method is proposed to forecast Turkey's total electric load one day in advance by neural networks. A hybrid learning scheme that combines off-line learning with real-time forecasting is developed to use the available data for adapting the weights and to further adjust these connections according to changing conditions. Data are clustered due to the differences in their characteristics. Special days are extracted from the normal training sets and handled separately. In this way, a solution is provided for all load types, including working days, weekends and special holidays. A traditional ARMA model is constructed for the same data as a benchmark. Proposed method gives lower percent errors all the time, especially for holidays. The average error for year 2002 is obtained as 1.60%.


Integrated deterministic approaches for productivity index of reservoirs depleted by horizontal wells and undergone multiphase flow conditions
Al-Rbeawi, Salam (Elsevier BV, 2019-04-01)
This paper introduces new integrated approaches for estimating pseudo-steady state productivity index (PI) and shape factor of oil and gas reservoirs drained by horizontal wells and dominated by multiphase flow conditions. These approaches couple PVT data, relative permeability curves, and pressure distribution models during pseudo-steady state flow (PSS). The objective is eliminating the uncertainties of applying single phase flow models and substantially comprising the realistic parameters that govern mul...
Incorporation of generator maintenance scheduling with long-term power sector forecasting and planning studies
Ilseven, Engin; Göl, Murat (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2020-07-01)
The objective of this study is to propose a dynamic generator maintenance scheduling (GMS) algorithm for long-term power sector forecasting and planning studies in which electricity price and the resulting supply composition are determined with merit-order dispatch. Compatible with the GMS algorithm, a reasonable strategy for the utilisation of storage hydropower plants along with clear definitions for each stage including must-run renewable electricity generation modelling, calculation of reserve capacity,...
Promoting the Investment on IPPs for Optimal Grid Planning
TOR, Osman Bulent; Güven, Ali Nezih; Shahidehpour, Mohammad (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-08-01)
This paper presents a transmission expansion planning (TEP) model which coordinates investment decisions in monopolistic transmission and decentralized generator sectors. The proposed planning approach gauges transmission congestion and security constraints with respect to transmission investments while promoting investments on independent power produces (IPPs) through incentive payments. The paper includes discussions on incentive mechanisms and prioritization among qualified IPPs for several planning scen...
Spectral correction-based method for interharmonics analysis of power signals with fundamental frequency deviation
Salor, Oezguel (Elsevier BV, 2009-07-01)
In this paper, a spectral correction-based algorithm for interharmonic computation is proposed for especially highly fluctuating fundamental frequency cases in the power system. It has been observed and reported that fluctuating demands of some loads such as arc furnaces, or disturbances and subsequent system transients make the fundamental frequency of the power system deviate and this causes non-existing interharmonics to appear in the spectrum due to grid-effect when a standard window length is used for ...
Hierarchical parallelisation strategy for multilevel fast multipole algorithm in computational electromagnetics
Ergül, Özgür Salih (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2008-01-03)
A hierarchical parallelisation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) for the efficient solution of large-scale problems in computational electromagnetics is presented. The tree structure of MLFMA is distributed among the processors by partitioning both the clusters and the samples of the fields appropriately for each level. The parallelisation efficiency is significantly improved compared to previous approaches, where only the clusters or only the fields are partitioned in a level.
