## Methods of Voltage Control

Methods of Voltage Control: Methods of Voltage Control – Practically each equipment used in power system are rated for a certain voltage with a permissible band of voltage variations. Voltage at various buses must, therefore, be controlled within a specified regulation figure. This article will discuss the two methods by means of which voltage at […]

## Power Flow through a Transmission Line

Power Flow through a Transmission Line: Power Flow through a Transmission Line – So far the transmission line performance equation was presented in the form of voltage and current relationships between sending-and receiving-ends. Since loads are more often expressed in terms of real (watts/kW) and reactive (VARs/ kVAR) power, it is convenient to deal with […]

## Equivalent Circuit of a Long Line

Equivalent Circuit of a Long Line: So far as the end conditions are concerned, the Equivalent Circuit of a Long Line can be established in the form of a T- or π-network. The parameters of the equivalent network are easily obtained by comparing the performance equations of a π-network and a transmission line in terms […]

## Tuned Power Lines

Tuned Power Lines: Tuned Power Lines – Equation (5.23) characterizes the performance of a long line. For an overhead line shunt conductance G is always negligible and it is sufficiently accurate to neglect line resistance R as well. With this approximation Hence Eq. (5.23) simplifies i.e. the receiving-end voltage and current are numerically equal to […]

## Ferranti Effect

Ferranti Effect: The effect of the line capacitance is to cause the no-load receiving-end voltage to be more than the sending-end voltage. The effect becomes more pronounced as the line length increases. This phenomenon is known as the Ferranti effect. A general explanation of this effect is advanced below: Substituting x = l and IR […]

## Interpretation of the Long Line Equation

Interpretation of the Long Line Equation: Interpretation of the Long Line Equation – As already said in Eq.

## Long Transmission Line Rigorous Solution

Long Transmission Line Rigorous Solution: Long Transmission Line Rigorous Solution – For lines over 250 km, the fact that the parameters of a line are not lumped but distributed uniformally throughout its length, must be considered Figure 5.10 shows one phase and the neutral return (of zero impedance) of a transmission line. Let dx be […]

## Medium Transmission Line

Medium Transmission Line: Medium Transmission Line – For lines more than 100 km long, charging currents due to shunt admittance cannot be neglected. For lines in range 100 km to 250 km length, it is sufficiently accurate to lump all the line admittance at the receiving-end resulting in the equivalent diagram shown in Fig. 5.7. […]

## Voltage Regulation of Transmission Line

Voltage Regulation of Transmission Line: Voltage Regulation of Transmission Line is defined as the rise in voltage at the receiving-end, expressed as percentage of full load voltage, when full load at a specified power factor is thrown off, i.e. In the above derivation, ΦR has been considered positive for a lagging load. It will be […]

## Short Transmission Line

Short Transmission Line: For Short Transmission Line of length 100 km or less, the total 50 Hz shunt admittance* (jωCl) is small enough to be negligible resulting in the simple equivalent circuit of Fig. 5.1. This being a simple series circuit, the relationship between sending-end receiving-end voltages and currents can be immediately written as: The […]
