In this paper a nationwide power quality monitoring system, which computes and collects PQ parameters and the required waveforms at a power quality monitoring center for both the purposes of early warning and later analysis of power quality of the whole transmission system, is presented. The system consists of three basic units: PQ monitors connected to various transformer substations all over the country; a national PQ monitoring center which communicates with all PQ monitors regularly, receives PQ data and archives them; and finally a client software, which lets individuals connect to the national PQ center and run searches on the PQ archive. The monitors compute PQ parameters based on the IEC Standard-61000-4-30. The client software will be available to the Electricity Transmission System Corporation of Turkey, TEIAS, distribution companies, large industrial plants which are directly supplied from the transmission system, research institutes and the universities. This is a three-year project of the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, TUBITAK, which started in March 2006 and the already-developed prototype system is presented in this paper.

This paper is devoted to the design and implementation of a multipurpose platform (MPP) for power system monitoring and analysis. This MPP is a novel device, which combines the abilities of a power quality (PQ) analyzer, an event logger, a synchronized phasor measurement unit, and an interarea oscillation identifier, all in one device. The multiple functions of the proposed MPP can serve the needs of the power system operators (SOs) as a wide-area monitoring system to observe the states and stability of the...

This paper describes mobile power quality monitoring systems developed to carry out extensive power quality (PQ) measurements nationwide, in addition to instrumentation and measurement technologies used in those systems. The developed systems have been used to measure the PQ of the Turkish Electricity Transmission System, which is among the largest transmission systems in Europe. To make trouble-shooting studies at the problematic measurement points in terms of PQ different measuring instruments and a wide ...

This work is devoted to taking nationwide power quality (PQ) snapshots of the Turkish Electricity Transmission System, via field measurements carried out by application speck mobile monitoring equipment. This project is carried out as a subproject of the National Power Quality Project of Turkey, and is aimed at investigating the general status of electric power quality and reactive power flows in the Electricity Transmission System all over the country. Critical points will then be selected to place permane...

This paper describes countrywide electrical power quality (PQ) assessments of the Turkish Electricity Transmission System through a genuine PQ database. The database stores the output of mobile PQ measurement systems which are established at 172 transformer substations of the transmission system. At 601 measurement points in these substations, which are potentially critical in terms of PQ, measurements are carried out by the mobile systems for a period of 1 week. PQ parameters defined in the IEC-61000-4-30 ...
Nationwide real-time monitoring system for electrical quantities and power quality of the electricity transmission system

In this study, a nationwide real-time monitoring system has been developed to monitor all electrical quantities and power quality (PQ) parameters of the electricity transmission network including its interfaces with the generation and distribution systems. The implemented system is constituted of extended PQ analysers (PQ(+) analysers), a national monitoring center for power quality (NMCPQ), and the PQ retrieval and analysis software suite. The PQ(+) analyser is specifically designed for multipurpose usage ...
