Voltage Profile of Transmission Line

Voltage Profile of Transmission Line: Control of Voltage Profile of Transmission Line at the receiving bus in the fundamental two-bus system was discussed already. Though the same general conclusions hold for an interconnected system, it is important to discuss this problem in greater detail. At a bus with generation, voltage can be conveniently controlled by …

Comparison of Load Flow Methods

Comparison of Load Flow Methods: Comparison of Load Flow Methods – Gauss Seidel and Newton Raphson methods are compared when both use YBUS as the network model. It is experienced that the Gauss Seidel method works well when programmed using rectangular coordinates, whereas Newton Raphson requires more memory when rectangular coordinates are used. Hence, polar coordinates …

Fast Decoupled Load Flow

Fast Decoupled Load Flow: An important characteristic of any practical electric power transmission system operating in steady state is the strong interdependence between real powers and bus voltages angles and between reactive powers and voltage magnitudes. This interesting property of weak coupling between P- δ and Q-V variables gave the necessary motivation in developing the …

Newton Raphson Method Formula

Newton Raphson Method Formula: The Newton Raphson Method Formula is a powerful method of solving non-linear algebraic equations. It works faster and is sure to converge in most cases as compared to the GS method. It is indeed the practical method of load flow solution of large power networks. Its only drawback is the large …

Gauss Seidel Method

Gauss Seidel Method: The Gauss Seidel Method (GS) is an iterative algorithm for solving a set of non-linear algebraic equations. To start with, a solution vector is assumed, based on guidance from practical experience in a physical situation. One of the equations is then used to obtain the revised value of a particular variable by …

Network Model Formulation

Network Model Formulation: For a load flow study of a real life power system comprising a large number of buses, it is necessary to proceed systematically by first formulating the network model of the system. A power system comprises several buses which are interconnected by means of transmission lines. Power is injected into a bus …
