It is widely known that the generation and consumption of electricity should be balanced for secure operation and maintenance of the electricity grid. In order to help achieve this balance in the grid, the renewable energy resources such as wind and stream-flow should be forecast at high accuracies on the generation side, and similarly, electricity consumption should be forecast using a high-performance system. In this paper, we deal with short-term electricity consumption forecast in Turkey, and conduct various ANN-based experiments using real consumption data. The experiments are carried out on datasets of various scales in order to arrive at a learning system that uses, as the training dataset, a convenient subset of large quantities of field data. Thereby, the performance of system can be improved in addition to decreasing the time for the training stage, so that the resulting system can be efficiently used in operational settings. The performance evaluation results of these experiments to forecast electricity consumption in Nigde province of Turkey are presented together with the related discussions. This study provides an important baseline of findings, upon which other learning systems and training settings can be tested, improved, and compared with each other.

Short-term electricity load forecasting with special days: an analysis on parametric and non-parametric methods
Erisen, Esra; İyigün, Cem; Tanrisever, Fehmi (Springer, 2019-01-01)
Accurately forecasting electricity demand is a key business competency for firms in deregulated electricity markets. Market participants can reap significant financial benefits by improving their electricity load forecasts. Electricity load exhibits a complex time-series structure with nonlinear relationships among the variables. Hence, models with higher capabilities to capture such nonlinear relationships need to be developed and tested. In this paper, we present a parametric and a nonparametric method fo...
Optimal phasor measurement unit (PMU) placement for the power systems with existing SCADA measurements
Ertürk, Bulut; Göl, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
It is extremely important to maintain efficiency, sustainability and reliability of the generation, transmission and distribution of the electrical energy; hence it is mandatory to monitor the system in real time. State estimation has a key role in real time monitoring of a power system. The considered power system has to be observable in order to perform state estimation. Traditionally, power system state estimators employ SCADA measurements. However, as the number of Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) increa...
Two new indices for the assessment of regional transmission connection capacities
Güverçinci, Ali Haydar; Göl, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
Traditionally electrical power industry has been regulated and monopolized. However, since 1980s it has undergone a period of restructuring throughout the world. This privatization procedure has made the planning and operation of the generation, transmission and distribution parts of power system relatively more independent and disconnected. The transmission system planners lost their direct control over plant investments. As a result, planning of the transmission system became more complex than it ever was...
Demand, supply and partial equilibrium analysis of electricity energy pricing for Turkish market
Özdemir, Asena; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Actuarial Sciences (2013)
Electricity energy is a fundamental commodity for all sectors of the economy. For this reason, estimating the factors and their impacts on electricity consumption and production are important to maintain sustainability in electricity energy market. The aim of the study is to determine the association between main macroeconomic and sectorial indicators with electricity consumption and production. For estimating electricity demand, annual electricity consumption, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), electricity tran...
Transmission management and planning: The aftermath of Turkish electricity restructuring
Tor, Osman Bulent; Shahidehpour, Mohammad (2006-09-19)
The key to enhancing electricity restructuring is to have an adequate competition in the generation sector of power industry. This concept requires a sufficient transmission capacity to support trading in electricity markets, while maintaining the system reliability. However, transmission expansion planning (TEP) for managing adequate transmission capacity is a major challenge which involves uncertainties and risks in restructured electricity environment. This study reviews TEP issues in a general perspecti...
