The Turkish TSO (TEIAS) has been leading a project that aims the synchronous interconnected operation of the Turkish Power System and the ENTSO-E CESA (former UCTE) System. For this purpose, this study concentrates on the specific problems related to the electromechanical systems of large size hydroelectric power plants regarding low frequency inter area oscillations, which are prone to occur once the interconnected operation is established. The expected frequency of inter area oscillations after interconnected operation is close to 0.15 Hz, which is in the frequency range of the speed governing structures of turbines, as explained in the first two sections of the thesis. In the third section, the nonlinear turbine governor model used throughout the study is explained. In the following part, the governor parameter tuning study with regard to the defined performance objectives is explained. Afterwards, the effect of the retuned governor settings of the sample hydroelectric power plants on a simple multi machine power system is shown. Following that, the system wide effect of removing the sources of negative damping, which are strongly dependent on the governor settings of the major hydroelectric power plants of the Turkish Power System, is shown. In the final part, conclusions are made on the operation of the hydroelectric power plants regarding the frequency stability of the system after synchronous interconnected operation of the v Turkish Power System and the ENTSO-E CESA System.

Optimal determination and allocation of secondary frequency control reserve in a market environment considering ACE criteria /
Geren, Ali; Güven, Ali Nezih; Tör, Osman Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Frequency control in Turkey is realized under four main tasks, namely; primary, secondary, tertiary frequency control and time control according to European Network of Transmission Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) regulations. As being a part of an interconnected electricity network, secondary frequency control mechanism, which is realized by the utilization of an Automatic Generation Control (AGC) System, plays a crucial role in the achievement of two important goals. One of them is maintaining the freq...
Technical evaluation of synchronous interconnection between Mashriq Countries /

The Electrical Interconnection among The Eight Countries Project (EIJLLPST Project) has been initiated by Mashriq countries (Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq) and Turkey. The objectives of the EIJLLPST Project are to investigate necessary investments to reinforce the existing interconnections and to increase transfer capacities between EIJLLPST countries. This study aims to evaluate the transfer capacities of the existing and planned interconnections between these countries through comp...
Damping measures against prospective oscillations between Turkish grid and ENTSO-E system

After the synchronous interconnection of Turkish Power System to ENTSO-E CESA (former UCTE) System, inter-area oscillations in the range of 0.15 Hz are prone to occur, according to simulation studies. Therefore, some preventive measures should be considered in order to ensure stable operation of the network after the interconnection. This study summarizes the effects of following measures based on computer simulations: 1) Retuning of power system stabilizers (PSS) of the important power plants in Turkey, 2)...
The liberalization of the Turkish electricity sector: a simulation analysis
Bahçe, Serdal; Taymaz, Erol; Department of Economics (2003)
The Turkish Electricity System has gone through a liberalization process. This study aims to analyze the possible outcomes of this process by using a simulation framework. First, we look at the basics of new market design and focus on international evidence. Second, the theoretical and empirical literature about the liberalization of the electricity sector is reviewed. Then, the structure of our model, Turkish Electricity System Simulation Model (TESS), is summarized. In this model, it is assumed that a spo...
