Reactive Power Management and Regional Reactive Load Forecast in Turkish Electricity Energy Market

Mükail Akbulut and Ömer Gül

Abstract—In deregulated power systems, isolated system operators are responsible for providing the limits of active power flow and bus voltages on transmission lines. Reactive power management has very significant role for isolated system operators because of not only operating the power system safely and bus voltages and transmission line loadings in limit values, but also minimizing costs of the system. The aim is to emphasize the significance of reactive power in electricity market. In this study at first reactive power issue is generally approached, and then economic and technical issues of reactive power procurement are stated. Reactive power pricing and some boundaries are also explained for Turkish electricity market. At the end of this study, reactive load is forecasted for 2011-2015 years in European Land of Istanbul through least mean squares method. In coming four years reactive power compensation for that region will have been resolved.

Index Terms—Reactive power pricing, electricity market, reactive power management, load forecast.
