Power Systems I The Power Flow Solution Most common and important tool in power system analysis also known as the “Load Flow” solution used for planning and controlling a system assumptions: balanced condition and single phase analysis Problem: determine the voltage magnitude and phase angle at each bus determine the active and reactive power flow in each line each bus has four state variables: voltage magnitude voltage phase angle real power injection reactive power injection

Power Systems I The Power Flow Solution Each bus has two of the four state variables defined or given Types of buses: Slack bus (swing bus) voltage magnitude and angle are specified, reference bus solution: active and reactive power injections Regulated bus (generator bus, P-V bus) models generation-station buses real power and voltage magnitude are specified solution: reactive power injection and voltage angle Load bus (P-Q bus) models load-center buses active and reactive powers are specified (negative values for loads) solution: voltage magnitude and angle

Power Systems I Newton-Raphson PF Solution Quadratic convergence mathematically superior to Guass-Seidel method More efficient for large networks number of iterations required for solution is independent of system size The Newton-Raphson equations are cast in natural power system form solving for voltage magnitude and angle, given real and reactive power injections
