A New Index for Voltage Quality Assessment at Distribution Systems

ERCİN, Özden
Göl, Murat
Analysis of power quality problems in distribution systems is getting important day-by-day because of the increase in vulnerable non-linear loads, such as data centers across the Globe. Regulatory authorities all over the world investigate these problems in order to serve in better conditions to the users. In this article we analyzed power quality problems in terms of their effects to the users, and developed an index to observe the problematic areas. As different types of loads in terms of operation criticality, are fed through the same distribution system, same power quality event may have different effects to their operation. The proposed Event Ranking Index (ERI) is capable of presenting a ranking among the affected loads based on the characteristic properties of the realized event and operational criticality of the considered loads. This ranking can be used to identify risky regions of the considered distribution system.

A Strategy to Evaluate Solar Power Generation Capability Based on Historical Data
Şengül, Deniz; Göl, Murat (2018-09-07)
The rapid population of the distributed PV systems brings concerns about system reliability and voltage quality of the power systems. This paper aims to evaluate the effects of those plants to the voltage quality and system reliability of power systems. The paper develops a statistical analysis method by developing metrics for a photovoltaic power plant located in Ankara, Turkey, using power generation data. The generation data involves all uncertainty associated with weather conditions as well as environme...

Electrical power quality (PQ) data is one of the prevalent types of engineering data. Its measurement at relevant sampling rates leads to large volumes of PQ data to be managed and analyzed. In this paper, an extensible database architecture is presented based on a novel generic data model for PQ data. The proposed architecture is operated on the nationwide PQ data of the Turkish Electricity Transmission System measured in the field by mobile PQ monitoring systems. The architecture is extensible in the sens...
A proposed rule for the interconnection of distributed generation and its economic justification
Gezer, Doğan; Özay, Nevzat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
Distributed generation (DG) is electricity generation by small generating units, which are interconnected at distribution level with capacity less than 50 MW. Environmental concerns and the idea of using cheap and domestic renewable resources increased the popularity of DG following the developments in equipment technology. In Turkey, interconnection of DG is realized through the distribution busbars of 154/36 kV substation. The interconnection of DG at 36 kV feeders is not allowed by distribution system au...
Distributed Generation Hosting Capacity Calculation of MV Distribution Feeders in Turkey
Altin, Mufit; Bizkevelci, Erdal; Oguz, Emre Utku; Simsek, Bilal (2014-10-15)
Integration of distributed generation into distribution networks introduces new challenges to distribution system operators while the penetration level increases. One of the challenges is the voltage rise issue as a part of the steady-state analysis of DGs during planning and operational stages. This issue should be analyzed in order to determine the hosting capacity of distribution feeders in the first instance. Accordingly, Turkey is a promising candidate to integrate high penetration of DGs and has recen...
Design and development of a simple power quality monitor for low voltage distribution system
Yazlık, Önder; Ermiş, Muammer; Salor Durna, Özgül; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Power Quality (PQ) is an important issue in the operation of distribution systems. The power delivered to the consumers should be as clean as possible. Quality of power is defined in various standards or regulations such as The Electrical Distribution System Supply Reliability and Quality of Electricity Regulation in Turkey. To comply with these regulations the quality of the electrical power should be monitored and controlled at the consumer side which is at the end of the distribution system. This is achie...
