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 recently started to publish regulations for DGs. This paper presents a method to calculate DG hosting capacity of MV distribution feeders in Turkey. The presented calculation is compared with the current regulations in terms of load flow results. Additionally, this paper aims to ease the technical reviews of the DG integration with the presented method, which helps to assess the steady-state voltage impacts introduced by DGs. Finally, a general flow chart of steady-state analysis is proposed for Turkish DSOs.


Promoting the Investment on IPPs for Optimal Grid Planning
TOR, Osman Bulent; Güven, Ali Nezih; Shahidehpour, Mohammad (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-08-01)
This paper presents a transmission expansion planning (TEP) model which coordinates investment decisions in monopolistic transmission and decentralized generator sectors. The proposed planning approach gauges transmission congestion and security constraints with respect to transmission investments while promoting investments on independent power produces (IPPs) through incentive payments. The paper includes discussions on incentive mechanisms and prioritization among qualified IPPs for several planning scen...
Optimal resource allocation algorithms for efficient operation of wireless networks
Özel, Ömür; Uysal Bıyıkoğlu, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, we analyze allocation of two separate resources in wireless networks: transmit power and buffer space. Controlled allocation of power can provide good performance for both users and the network. Although centralized mechanisms are possible, distributed power control algorithms are preferable for efficient operation of the network. Viewing distributed power allocation as the collection of rational decisions of each user, we make game theoretic problem formulations, devise distributed algorith...
CLOUDGEN: Workload generation for the evaluation of cloud computing systems CLOUDGEN: Bulut Bilişim Sistemlerinin Başarim Deǧerlendirmesi icin Iş Yuku Uretimi
Koltuk, Furkan; Yazar, Alper; Schmidt, Şenan Ece (2019-04-01)
In this paper, we propose CLOUDGEN workflow that produces synthetic workloads for Infrastructure and Platform as a Service for the evaluation of resource management approaches in cloud computing systems. To this end, CLOUDGEN systematically processes and clusters records in a given workload trace and fits distributions for different workload parameters within the clusters. Different than the previous work, clustering is carried out to produce different virtual machine types for achieving models that are sui...

Atalik, Tevhid; ÇADIRCI, IŞIK; Demirci, Turan; Ermiş, Muammer; İNAN, TOLGA; Kalaycioglu, Alper Sabri; Salor, Ozgul (2014-03-01)
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...

In this paper, simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) concept is introduced for multi group multicast beamforming. Each user has a single antenna and a power splitter which divides the radio frequency (RF) signal into two for both information decoding and energy harvesting. The aim is to minimize the total transmission power at the base station while satisfying both signal-to-interference-plus- noise-ratio (SINR) and harvested power constraints at each user. Unlike unicast and certain ...
