Abstract

Abstract- Electric arc furnace has a variable power consumption with time that causes mechanical oscillations in the adjacent small scale synchronous generators, and consequently, decreases its life. In this paper, we first provide a model for electric arc furnace and is validated using actual measured data. In this paper a real distribution system consisting of the small scale synchronous generator, which feeds industrial loads, including electric arc furnaces, is analyzed and evaluated based on the simulation of the time domain. Using analytical studies and simulation results, the appropriate value for controller parameters of the prime mover is determined in such a way that the mechanical oscillations of the small scale synchronous generator created by the electric arc furnace are reduced. In addition, the response of the transient mode of the small scale synchronous generator is also considered in the proper setting of the parameters. Finally reliability and effectiveness of the proposed parameters are evaluated using real measurement data
