The interconnection project between Turkish grid and the ENTSO-E CESA system is almost finished. According to feasibility analysis based on computer simulations, inter-area oscillations around ∼0.15 Hz is expected once the interconnection is established. Unless countermeasures are taken, these oscillations could grow to dangerous amounts which will result in disconnection of Turkish grid from the interconnection. This paper analyzes the effect of such measures based on computer simulations. These measures are: 1) Parameter optimization of the governors of considerable size hydroelectric units in Turkey; 2) Parameter optimization of power system stabilizers (PSS), 3) Controller modification of static VAR compensators (SVC) existing in steel melting arc furnaces that are supplied directly from the transmission system, 4) Controller modification of ±50 MVAR STATCOM designed for voltage regulation, and 5) Application of breaking resistors The results illustrate the positive contribution of each measure to the damping performance of the system. The study includes conclusive recommendations.

Budak, Erhan; Sucuoğlu, Haluk (2018-06-18)
A 62-story tall reinforced concrete office building with a free-standing height of 250 m has been designed in Istanbul in accordance with the new Turkish Earthquake Code (TEC, 2017). According to TEC 2017, buildings taller than 70 m and located in the first and second seismic zones are classified as tall buildings and these building shall be designed to meet the special rules based on performance-based seismic design approach. The tall building in Istanbul, having a parallelogram shaped floor plan and reinf...
Assessment of the effect of hydroelectric power plants' governor settings on low frequency inter area oscillations
GENCOGLU, C; Tor, O.B.; Cebeci, E.; Yilmaz, O.; Güven, Ali Nezih (2010-10-28)
The Turkish TSO (TEIAS) has been leading a project that aims the synchronous interconnected operation of the Turkish Power System and the ENTSO-E CESA (former UCTE) System. For this purpose, this study concentrates on the specific problems related to the electromechanical systems of large size hydroelectric power plants regarding low frequency inter area oscillations, which are prone to occur once the interconnected operation is established. The expected frequency of inter area oscillations after interconne...
Analytical study on seismic retrofitting of reinforced concrete buildings using steel braces with shear link
Durucan, Cengizhan; Dicleli, Murat (2010-10-01)
This paper is focused on a proposed seismic retrofitting system (PRS) configured to upgrade the performance of seismically vulnerable reinforced concrete (RC) buildings. The PRS is composed of a rectangular steel housing frame with chevron braces and a yielding shear link connected between the braces and the frame. The retrofitting system is installed within the bays of an RC building frame to enhance the stiffness, strength and ductility of the structure. The PRS and a conventional retrofitting system usin...

EMC considerations in the design of a unified relocatable SVC for open-cast lignite mining in Turkey
Terciyanli, A; Ermiş, Muammer; Gultekin, B; Tor, OB; Yorukoglu, M (2003-05-16)
EMC considerations in the design and implementation of a unified relocatable SVC for a open-cast lignite mining in Turkey have been presented. A successful SVC layout is found to be an important design objective for EMI immunity. Closed loops that can be formed by copper grounding bars and guard fence around air-core thyristor controlled reactors are to be avoided in the design and implementation. This paper also summarizes the experience gained in the formation of medium-voltage protective and electronic g...
