The iron and steel industry has been growing increasingly in Turkey in the last decade. Today, its electricity demand is nearly one tenth of the installed generation capability of 40 GW in the country. In this paper, power quality (PQ) investigations based on the arc furnace installations of the iron and steel plants using field measurements according to(More)
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(More)
This paper deals with the development and implementation of a current-source-converter-based static synchronous compensator (CSC-STATCOM) applied to the volt-ampere-reactive (VAR) compensation problem of coal mining excavators. It is composed of a plusmn750-kVAR full-bridge CSC with selective harmonic elimination, a low-pass input filter tuned to 200 Hz,(More)
This paper describes the design, implementation, and performance of a medium-size distribution-type static synchronous compensator (D-STATCOM) with the simplest two-level three-leg voltage-source converter (VSC) topology. Reactive-power control is achieved by phase-shift-angle control, and VSC harmonics are eliminated by selective harmonic elimination(More)
In this paper, the National Power Quality Monitoring System, which is designed to monitor the power quality (PQ) of the Turkish Electricity Transmission System is presented. The National PQ Monitoring System consists of three main parts: PQ monitors, which are installed all over the country; a monitoring center, which collects the data sent by the power(More)
In this paper, a fully digital controller based on multiple digital signal processor (DSP) and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) boards has been proposed for parallel-operated cascaded multilevel converters (CMC) used in flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) applications. The proposed system is composed of a DSP-based master controller in combination(More)
The variable-frequency operation of the coreless induction melting furnace (IMF) has been investigated in detail both theoretically and experimentally. The time variations of the operational impedance value of the IMF, owing to the time-varying resonance frequency and crucible conditions, have been derived for typical melting cycles by using a variable(More)
