SIMULATION OF POWER DISTRIBUTION MANAGEMENTSystem Description:Power Distribution Management (PDM) is a system responsible for ensuring that theconsumers have undisrupted power supply. They are also known as ElectricityDistribution systems and the main purpose of the system is to supply electrical energyfrom the substation to the consumer locations. To improve transmission efficiency and tocomply with consumer needs, the transmission voltage may be stepped-up or stepped-down. A whole network of routers, circuit breakers, switches, alarms, load-readingmeters, telemetry etc. [3] are used for electricity distribution and supply. Also companiesshare National grids1for power distribution and supply.The Control Engineers (CE) with the assistance of Field Engineers (FE) does themanagement of these power distribution networks. The Control Engineers has to ensurethat losses in the electricity transmission is kept minimal and all consumers are suppliedan undisrupted power supply by maintaining an optimal power grid configuration [6].This optimal configuration can be maintained by reducing the transmission losses,preventing overloads and by proper switching of networks. The whole PDM system andthe simulation act as an aid to the CE in order to maintain and carry out the electricitydistribution system requirements.
