Due to their particular feature, direct current (dc) electric arc furnace (EAF) installations are peculiar loads that cause moderate to severe power quality (PQ) disturbances in the feeding power systems. Among them, voltage fluctuations and waveform distortions are the most impactful ones, and they should be adequately addressed in order to mitigate the detrimental effects. Several types of models have been developed in order to evaluate the effects of EAFs on networks, and chaotic models have been specifically recognized as suitable tools to evaluate the impact of EAFs in terms of PQ disturbances. This article compares the performance of three chaotic models (Chua, Lorenz, and Rössler) aiming at estimating PQ indices values of dc EAFs. The procedure exploits a block diagramming tool of the dc EAF installation and minimizes the deviation of estimated PQ indices from the actual ones through a new Monte Carlo optimization procedure, performed upon the parameters of the three chaotic models. To comply with the time-varying nature of the current and voltage waveforms in a dc EAF installation and with the wide presence of interharmonics, traditional, and advanced PQ indices are considered in this article. Actual data collected at an Italian dc EAF installation are used to conduct a numerical comparative analysis and to validate the effectiveness of the models in estimating the PQ disturbances.
