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 components are used to obtain the light flicker. The method is tested on both simulated data and field data obtained from a power system. The comparison of the results with the digital realization of the IEC flickermeter shows that the method gives satisfactory estimations with low computational complexity. The method is especially useful for conditions such as disturbances and subsequent system transients where the system frequency deviates. Since the frequency decomposition is obtained by using Kalman filtering, no leakage effect of the FFT method is involved in case of frequency deviations.

A Self-Powered and Efficient Rectifier for Electromagnetic Energy Harvesters
Ulusan, Hasan; Zorlu, Ozge; Muhtaroglu, Ali; Külah, Haluk (2014-11-05)
This paper presents an interface circuit for efficient rectification of voltages from electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesters operating with very low vibration frequencies. The interface utilizes a dual-rail AC/DC doubler which benefits from the full cycle of the input AC voltage, and minimizes the forward bias voltage drop with an active diode structure. The active diodes are powered through an AC/DC quadrupler with diode connected (passive) transistors. The interface system has been validated to drive 22 m...

Investigation of subsynchronous resonance risk in the 380 kv Turkish electric network
Ozay, N.; Güven, Ali Nezih (null; 1988-12-01)
Subsynchronous resonance (SSR) occurs when a resonant frequency of a series compensated transmission system interacts with a natural frequency of the turbine prime mover. This form of SSR is referred to as torsional interaction which, under certain conditions, may become self-excited and cause serious damage to electrical equipment and turbine shafts. The presence of a thermal power plant (Kangal) in the close vicinity of a group of series capacitors in Eastern Turkey necessitated a careful investigation of...
Highly Integrated 3 V Supply Electronics for Electromagnetic Energy Harvesters With Minimum 0.4 V-peak Input
Ulusan, Hasan; Zorlu, Ozge; Muhtaroglu, Ali; Külah, Haluk (2017-07-01)
This paper presents a self-powered interface enabling battery-like operation with a regulated 3 V output from ac signals as low as 0.4 V-peak, generated by electromagnetic energy harvesters under low frequency vibrations. As the first stage of the 180 nm standard CMOS circuit, harvested signal is rectified through an ac/dc doubler with active diodes powered internally by a passive ac/dc quadrupler. The voltage is boosted in the second stage through a low voltage charge pump stimulated by an on-chip ring osc...
New spectral decomposition based approach for flicker evaluation of electric arc furnaces
Koese, N.; Salor, Oe. (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2009-04-01)
A spectral decomposition-based approach is proposed to estimate the light flicker caused by electrical arc furnaces (EAFs) where the system frequency deviates significantly due to the EAF operation. 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 flickermeter. In the proposed method, the leakage effect of the FFT algorithm due to fundamental frequency varia...
