In this paper, the correlation between unscheduled power flows in the interconnection lines at the eastern cross border of the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) and multiple electric arc furnace (EAF) operations in Turkey, has been assessed. Turkey is interconnected to ENTSO-E at the eastern cross border via Greece and Bulgaria, with a 400 MW export and a 550 MW import agreement. In order to determine the degree of the relationship between the unscheduled power exchange between Turkey and Europe, and the multiple high power EAF operations, Pearson correlation method has been employed. For this purpose, time-synchronized data of active power consumption have been collected from 17 major EAF plants during one week with a time resolution of three seconds, by using custom-design, synchronized power quality analyzers. A total peak power consumption of nearly 1.5 GW of multiple EAF loads has been recorded. The results obtained have been evaluated by the use of the National Power Quality Monitoring System of Turkey, which continuously monitors the power flows in the interconnection lines of the ENTSO-E by power quality analyzers. The rate of change of total EAF power consumptions higher than 200 MW for less than 15-s duration against the rate of change of area control error (ACE) index are found to be closely correlated to each other, with a Pearson correlation coefficient of 0.8. Since the response of the frequency restoration reserve of power plants is much slower, such rapid fluctuations in the power consumption of multiple EAFs collectively result in uncontrollable power flows in the interconnections lines at the eastern cross border of ENTSO-E.

Determination of optimum values for voltage setpoints of power stations in Turkey
Elma, İsmail; Güven, Ali Nezih; Tör, Osman Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Voltage control is performed in three hierarchical levels in Turkish power system: primary, secondary and tertiary voltage control. Primary and secondary voltage controls are defined as the regulation of the voltage at the generator terminal and at the high voltage busbar of the power plant according to the pre-determined setpoints. The determination of the voltage setpoints for the power plants, which is defined as the tertiary voltage control, is performed by the operators in National and Regional Load Di...
Assessment of extensive countrywide electrical power quality measurements through a database architecture
Kucuk, Dilek; Salor, Ozgul; Guder, Mennan; Demirci, Turan; Inan, Tolga; Akkaya, Yener; Cadirci, Isik; Ermiş, Muammer (2013-03-01)
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 ...

This paper describes an enhanced monitoring and forecast system for the electrical power generated from wind in Turkey. Wind power plant (WPP) owners, transmission system operator, distribution system operators, and renewable energy experts are the shareholders of this system. The developed monitoring and forecast system is composed of wind electricity analyzers and reference wind masts, one for each WPP, a Wind-Electric Power Monitoring and Forecast Center (WPMFC) equipped with database, data processing, a...
Prediction of hot-spot and top-oil temperatures of power transformers according to IEEE standards C57.110-1998 and C57.91-1995
Karaca, Haldun; Ermiş, Muammer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this thesis, the effects of Harmonics on the Top Oil and Hot Spot Temperatures of Power Transformers used in Turkish Electricity Transmission System have been investigated. Due to the solid state equipment, the harmonic levels increase. This effect raises the losses and temperatures in the transformer windings. None of the power transformers currently used in Turkey has measuring equipment suitable for measuring the Hot-Spot temperatures. In this study, a computer program is written in LABVIEW which meas...
