Spectral correction-based method for interharmonics analysis of power signals with fundamental frequency deviation

Salor, Oezguel
In this paper, a spectral correction-based algorithm for interharmonic computation is proposed for especially highly fluctuating fundamental frequency cases in the power system. It has been observed and reported that fluctuating demands of some loads such as arc furnaces, or disturbances and subsequent system transients make the fundamental frequency of the power system deviate and this causes non-existing interharmonics to appear in the spectrum due to grid-effect when a standard window length is used for the entire FFT process. The proposed method uses a synthetic waveform produced at the fundamental frequency and amplitude to determine the amount of the leakage due to the grid-effect at each frequency. Then the leakage is subtracted from the original FFT of the signal to correct the frequency spectrum. It has been shown that the leakage effect caused by the fundamental frequency variation is avoided with a correction algorithm applied after FFT and the error in the first interharmonic computation due to frequency deviation is reduced to zero exactly if the fundamental frequency can be determined accurately. Both simulative and field data tests have been performed. The method does not require online sampling frequency or FFT window length adjustment and it is simple to implement.


Efficient parallelization of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm for the solution of large-scale scattering problems
Ergül, Özgür Salih (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008-08-01)
We present fast and accurate solutions of large-scale scattering problems involving three-dimensional closed conductors with arbitrary shapes using the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). With an efficient parallelization of MLFMA, scattering problems that are discretized with tens of millions of unknowns are easily solved on a cluster of computers. We extensively investigate the parallelization of MLFMA, identify the bottlenecks, and provide remedial procedures to improve the efficiency of the imp...
Hierarchical parallelisation strategy for multilevel fast multipole algorithm in computational electromagnetics
Ergül, Özgür Salih (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2008-01-03)
A hierarchical parallelisation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) for the efficient solution of large-scale problems in computational electromagnetics is presented. The tree structure of MLFMA is distributed among the processors by partitioning both the clusters and the samples of the fields appropriately for each level. The parallelisation efficiency is significantly improved compared to previous approaches, where only the clusters or only the fields are partitioned in a level.
Triple stub circuit topology as simultaneous insertion phase, amplitude and impedance control circuit for phased array applications
Unlu, M.; Demir, Şimşek; Akın, Tayfun (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2012-10-23)
This study shows that the well-known triple stub circuit topology can also be used for controlling the insertion phase and amplitude of a given signal simultaneously, as well as preserving its impedance transformation ability. The triple stub circuit topology, which is nothing but an extension of the conventional double stub loaded-line phase shifter, results in one more degree of freedom to its solution when it is solved for its insertion phase. This additional degree of freedom not only brings the impedan...
Singularity Cancellation for Accurate MoM Analysis of Periodic Planar Structures in Layered Media
Adanir, Suleyman; Alatan, Lale (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-08-01)
One of the singularity cancellation schemes proposed in the literature is applied to calculate singular integrals arising in the method of moments (MoM) analysis of 2-D periodic planar structures in multilayered media. Discrete complex image method is utilized for the accurate approximation of Green's function which also makes possible the application of the Ewald transformation for the efficient computation of the series associated with the periodic structure. This approximation and transformation modifies...
Kalman filtering based approach for light flicker evaluation of power systems
Kose, N.; Salor, O.; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2011-01-01)
In this study, a Kalman filtering based approach is proposed to measure the light flicker of the electricity transmission systems. Analytical expressions of the instantaneous light flicker sensation are used to obtain a flicker estimation method based on the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) flickermeter. In the proposed method, the frequency domain components of the voltage waveform are obtained by Kalman filtering and these components are used to obtain the light flicker. The method is teste...
