Observability and Criticality Analyses for Power Systems Measured by Phasor Measurements

This paper proposes observability and measurement criticality analysis methods for any type of current phasor measurement configurations. Measurement Jacobian cannot be decoupled when using current phasor measurements and thus conventional methods of network observability analysis can no longer be used. Current phasor measurements may be classified into two types based on their configuration. Depending on whether there is a voltage phasor measurement at the sending end of the measured line or not, a current phasor measurement configuration may be referred to as of type-1 or type-2, respectively. Two methods which can handle conventional as well as phasor measurements, one being a modified version of the conventional method for type-1, and the other being a new method for type-2 phasor measurements, are developed and presented. Moreover, due to the fully coupled model used in the analysis, a method to handle voltage magnitude measurements is also developed.


Design and performance analysis of a pump-turbine system using computational fluid dynamics
Yıldız, Mehmet; Albayrak, Kahraman; Çelebioğlu, Kutay; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2011)
In this thesis, a parametric methodology is investigated to design a Pump-Turbine system using Computational Fluid Dynamics ( CFD ). The parts of Pump-Turbine are created parametrically according to the experience curves and theoretical design methods. Then, these parts are modified to obtain 500 kW turbine working as a pump with 28.15 meters head. The final design of Pump-Turbine parts are obtained by adjusting parameters according to the results of the CFD simulations. The designed parts of the Pump-Turbi...
Binary integer programming based PMU placement in the presence of conventional measurements
Ertürk, Bulut; Göl, Murat (2016-10-12)
This paper proposes an optimal Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) placement method based on a modified version of the well-known binary integer linear programming formulation, which will utilize the installed PMUs and conventional measurements, i.e. active and reactive power flow and power injection measurements, to reduce the number of PMUs to be placed required for system observability. The proposed method applies conventional observability analysis to evaluate the system of concern and to reduce the size of t...
Comparison of Temperature Profile and Heat Transfer Predictions With Statistically Modeled Data From a Cooled 1 1 2 Stage High Pressure Transonic Turbine
Kahveci, Harika Senem (2013-06-03)
This paper compares predictions from a 3-D Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes code and a statistical representation of measurements from a cooled 1-1/2 stage high-pressure transonic turbine to quantify predictive process sensitivity. A multivariable regression technique was applied to both the inlet temperature measurements obtained at the inlet rake, and the wall temperature and heat transfer measurements obtained via heat-flux gauges on the blade airfoil surfaces. By using the statistically-modeled temperatu...
Robust Attitude Estimation Using IMU-Only Measurements
Candan, Batu; Söken, Halil Ersin (2021-01-01)
© 1963-2012 IEEE.This article proposes two novel covariance-tuning methods to form a robust Kalman filter (RKF) algorithm for attitude (i.e., roll and pitch) estimation using the measurements of only an inertial measurement unit (IMU). KF-based and complementary filtering (CF)-based approaches are the two common methods for solving the attitude estimation problem. Efficiency and optimality of the KF-based attitude filters are correlated with appropriate tuning of the covariance matrices. Manual tuning proce...
Design of attitude estimation algorithms for inertial sensors only measurement scenarios
Candan, Batu; Söken, Halil Ersin; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2022-3-24)
This thesis proposes four novel robust Kalman filter algorithms for attitude estimation using only the measurements of an inertial measurement unit. Efficiency and optimality of the Kalman filter based attitude filters are correlated with appropriate tuning of the covariance matrices. Manual tuning process is a difficult and time-consuming task. Specifically, the inertial measurement unit-only attitude estimation filters are prone to the external accelerations unless their covariances are adapted to gain ro...
