This paper presents a stochastic method for the hourly scheduling of optimal reserves when the hourly forecast errors of wind energy and load are considered. The approach utilizes the stochastic security-constrained unit commitment (SCUC) model and a two-stage stochastic programming for the day-ahead scheduling of wind energy and conventional units with N - 1 contingencies. The effect of aggregated hourly demand (DR) response is considered as a means of mitigating transmission violations when uncertainties are considered. The proposed mixed-integer programming (MIP) model applies the Monte Carlo method for representing the hourly wind energy and system load forecast errors. A 6-bus, 118-bus, and the Northwest region of Turkish electric power network are considered to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed day-ahead stochastic scheduling method in power systems.


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,...
Determination of zonal power demand S-curves with GA based on top-to-bottom and end-use approaches
TURSUN, Faik; CEBECI, Mahmut E.; TOR, Osman B.; SAHIN, Aydin; TASKIN, Hacer G.; Güven, Ali Nezih (2016-04-21)
Long-term zonal demand forecasting is a complex problem for electric distribution systems, particularly when the planner has limited data, and therefore, needs smart approaches along with proper estimations. This paper presents a novel methodology to determine saturation curves (S-curves) of demand zones which are classified based on municipality development plans. The methodology which is based on combination of top-to-bottom and bottom-to-top (also called end-use) approaches, is applied to the network of ...
Evaluation of performance and optimum valve settings for pressure management using forecasted daily demand curves by artificial neural networks
Yıldız, Evren; Merzi, Nuri; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
For the appropriate operation and correct short term planning, daily demand curve (DDC) of municipal water distribution networks should be forecasted beforehand. For that purpose, artificial neural networks (ANN) is used as a new method. The proposed approach employs already recorded DDCs extracted from the database of ASKI (Ankara Water Authority) SCADA center and related independent parameters such as temperature and relative humidity obtained from DMI (State Meteorological Institute). In this study, a co...
Assessing nonstationarity impacts for historical and projected extreme precipitation in Turkey
Aziz, Rizwan; Yücel, İsmail (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2021-01-01)
The temporal variability in yearly and seasonal extreme precipitation across Turkey is investigated using stationary and nonstationary frequency approach. Four frequency distributions namely, generalized extreme value (GEV), gumbel, normal, and lognormal distributions are used for the historical period (1971-2016) as well as the projection period (2051-2100). The nonstationarity impacts are determined by calculating the percentage difference of return levels (30 years) between stationary and nonstationary c...
Investigation of layout optimization for offshore wind farms and a case study for a region in Turkey
Kaya, Baran; Oğuz, Elif; Department of Civil Engineering (2022-2)
In this thesis, the focus was to develop an optimization tool by using mathematical layout optimization methods aiming to increase the energy capacity or reduce the cost of an offshore wind farm. For this purpose, two wind farm layout optimization (WFLO) models were developed using genetic algorithm (GA): model (a) minimizing the cost of power for variable turbine number, model (b) maximizing the power generation for fixed turbine number. Wind speed and wind direction were assumed constant. Therefore, unlik...
