This paper presents a novel planning approach which optimizes size and location of new transmission substation (TS) investments considering capacity expansion of the existing TSs based on primary distribution network investment requirements. Mixed Integer Programming (MIP) is utilized and the problem is decomposed into investment and feasibility check subproblems. The algorithm is formulated to minimize total investment cost while supplying the spatial forecasted load considering a set of system constraints. The results of two numerical examples indicate that presented algorithm is adequate for determining requirements of new transmission substations and/or capacity expansions together with new HV/MV lines, via appropriate selection of candidates. Visualization of the planning algorithm results, in an iterative manner, gives very important verification signals regarding the necessity of the proposed investments.

Congestion-driven transmission planning considering the impact of generator expansion
TOR, Osman Bulent; Güven, Ali Nezih; Shahidehpour, Mohammad (2008-05-01)
This paper presents a multi-year transmission expansion planning (TEP) model which considers the transmission congestion and the impact of generation investment cost in the planning horizon. The Benders decomposition approach is utilized which decomposes TEP into a master problem and two subproblems representing security and optimal operation. The operation cost due to congestion (OCC) is considered in the proposed model given that the congestion level is a proper criterion for measuring the degree of compe...

Power loss reduction and voltage profile improvement via distributed PV site and size selection in smart grids: The case of North Cyprus
Abujubbeh, Mohammad; Fahrioğlu, Murat; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2019-8)
The increased awareness of communities on climate change, the inefficiencies associated with power-system infrastructure, and the exponential growth in energy demand motivated donors, non-governmental organizations, consumers, firms, and investors to cooperate with governments to establish an efficient and reliable framework that meets all requirements while ensuring user security, known as the Smart Grid (SG). One of the most pivotal enabler-technologies for the transition toward SGs is Distributed Generat...
Hydro inflow forecasting and virtual power plant pricing in the Turkish electricity market
Çabuk, Sezer; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Danışoğlu, Seza; Department of Financial Mathematics (2016)
Hydro inflow forecasting with most accurate quantitative models is a very crucial subject for effective hydro optimization, virtual power plant pricing, volume risk management and weather derivatives pricing in the Turkish electricity market. Predicting increase or decrease in hydro inflow, seasonal characteristics of hydrological years such as wet, dry or normal, allow the decision makers to economically use water for optimal periods, quantify of volume risk and determine effective portfolio management strat...
Implementation of 1 kV on LV feeders: a smart alternative to MV line investments to solve voltage drop problems at LV systems
OZENA, Kadir; CEBECI, Mahmut E.; TOR, Osman B.; BATAR, Gokhan; KILIC, Andac; TURKMEN, Ulfet; Güven, Ali Nezih (2017-04-21)
This paper presents methodology and on-site pilot implementation of utilizing 1 kV at low voltage (LV) feeders as an alternative to medium voltage (MV) line investments to solve voltage drop problems at LV systems. Typically distribution companies solve voltage drop problems of LV system by installing a new MV/LV transformer and transferring outmost loads of the existing transformer to the new transformer. This necessitates installation of MV line between the existing and new transformer. The implementation...
