Fig 4.1(a) Fig 4.1(b)

Referring to Fig 4.1(b) the complex power balance at bus k is given by


(PIk + jQIk) = Pk + jQk (4.1)

where the complex power injection at the kth bus (PIk + jQIk) is equal to the complex power
flowing into the network through all the lines connected to kth bus (PIk + jQIk). Since the bus
generation and demand are specified, the complex power injection is a specified quantity and is
given by

PIk(sp) + jQIk(sp) = (PGk(sp) – PDk(sp)) + j (QGk(sp) – QDk(sp)) (4.2)

The complex power (Pk + jQk) can be written as a function of state variables as

N
Pk + jQk = Vk Ik = Vk ™<

m=1

Substituting Vk =|Vk| ?/k and Ykm = |Ykm| ?km, equation (4.3) becomes

Pk (/9) = |Vk| ™_< km| |Vm_FRV /k –/m –km) (4.4)
m=1

N
Qk (/9) = |Vk| ™_< km| |Vm_VLQ /k –/m –km) (4.5)
m=1

Substituting equations (4.2), (4.4) and (4.5) in equation (4.1) we get the following two power
balance equations for kth bus.

Pk(/9) – PIk(sp) = 0 (4.6)

Qk (/9) - QIk(sp) = 0 (4.7)

Load Flow model in real variable form is compiled by adopting the following rules

equation (4.6)

(ii) For every bus whose bus voltage magnitude |V| is unknown, include the respective reactive
power balance equation (4.7)

Thus for a system with a slack bus and M P-V buses, the number of real power balance equation,
NP is given by

NP = N-1
and the number reactive power balance equations, NQ is given by
NQ = N-M-1

Assuming that the buses are numbered with P-Q buses first, followed by P-V buses and then by the
slack bus, the Load Flow model for the system with M P-V buses is given by

fk = Pk(/9) – PIk(sp) = 0 ; k=1,2,……..NP (4.8)

fk+NP = Qk (/9) – QIk(sp) = 0; k =1,2,…..NQ (4.9)

where expressions Pk(/9) and Qk (/9) are given by equations (4.4) and (4.5). Equations (4.8) and
(4.9) can be written in compact form as

F(X) = 0 (4.10)

where X = stateYHFWRU  /1,/2«« /NP, V1, V2, ……..V NQ)

and the number of nonlinear equations in F in equation (4.10) is equal to (NP+NQ)

4.3.2. Newton-Raphson Load Flow (NRLF) Algorithm


Let us assume a solution X0 to equation (4.10) and let the correct solution to (4.10) be
X0 +¨X. Expanding equation (4.10) by Taylor series at X0 , and neglecting second and higher
order terms we get

F(X0 + ¨X) = 0 §) ; 0


) + (˜F/ ˜X)|X0- ¨X (4.11)
Equation (4.11) can be written as

(˜F/ ˜X)|X0 ¨X = -F(X0) (4.12)

The voltage correction scheme for Newton-Raphson method can be obtained by expanding
equation (4.12) as

H N ¨/ ¨P
= (4.13)
J L ¨_ V| / |V| ¨Q

4-3
where H = (˜P/ ˜/) ; N = (˜P/ ˜_V|) |V|
J = (˜Q/ ˜/) ; L = (˜Q/ ˜_V|) |V| (4.14)

¨P = real power mismatch vector = PI(sp) – P (/, |V|) (4.15)

¨Q = reactive power mismatch vector = QI(sp) – Q(/, |V|) (4.16)

The updated state vector is given by

 / /0 ¨/ (4.17)

The elements of the Jacobian matrix are given below

Off – diagonal elements:

Hkm = Lkm = |Vk | |Vm| (GkmVLQ /km – BkmFRV /km) (4.18)

Nkm = -Jkm = |Vk| |Vm| (GkmFRV /km + Bkm sLQ/km) (4.19)

Diagonal elements:

Hkk = -Qk – Bkk |Vk| 2 ; Lkk = Qk – Bkk |Vk| 2 (4.20)

Nkk = Pk + Gkk |Vk| 2 ; Jkk = Pk – Gkk |Vk|2 (4.21)

where Ykm = Gkm + jBkm

The following are the steps of NRLF algorithm.


1. Assume “flat start” for starting voltage solution
/ k (h) = 0.0 ; for h=0 ; k=1,……… NP( for all buses except slac k bus)
|Vk (h) | = 1.0 ; for h=0 ; k=1,2, ……..NQ (for all P -Q buses)
|Vk(h) | = |Vk|sch for all P-V buses and slack bus.

5. Obtain state correction vector by solving equation (4.13) using optimally ordered triangular
factorization.
6. Update state vector using equation (4.17). Go to step 2.

4.3.3 Fast-Decoupled Load Flow Model


Fast Decoupled Load Flow (FDLF) method is faster, simpler to program, equally reliable and
requires less memory than NRLF method. The model for this method is developed from NRLF
method by employing the P-/4 -V decoupling principle.

The starting point for the derivation of the FDLF model is the voltage correction scheme of the
Newton-Raphson method given in equation. (4.13).

The first step in applying the P-/4 -V decoupling principle is to neglect the coupling
submatrices [N] and [J] in equation (4.13) which results in two separate equations

[H] ¨/ = ¨P (4.22)
[L] ¨_V| / |V| = ¨Q (4.23)

The second step is to make certain physically justifiable simplifications. In practical power
systems, the following assumptions are almost always valid.

FRV/km = 1
GkmVLQ /km << Bkm
Qk << Bkk |Vk|2

Using the above approximations in the expressions for Jacobian elements in equations
(4.18) and (4.20) we get
Hkm = Lkm = -|Vk| |Vm| Bkm

Hkk = -Qk - Bkk |Vk|2 and Lkk = Qk - Bkk |Vk2|


The decoupled equations (4.22) and (4.23) become
[|V|B’|V| ] ¨/ = ¨P (4.24)

[|V|B”|V| ] (¨_V|/|V|) = ¨Q (4.25)

At this stage the elements of matrices [B’] and [B”] are strictly elements of [-B], the negative bus
susceptance matrix. For example , for a five bus example system given in Fig 4.2, the details of
matrix equations (4.24) and (4.25) are given in equations (4.26) and (4.27) respectively.

(4.27)
The decoupling process is completed by the following approximations

(a) Omitting from [B’] the representation of those network elements that predominantly affect
MVAR flows, i.e shunt reactances and off- nominal in-phase transformer taps (tap ratio is
taken as 1 p.u.)

(b) Omitting from [B”] the angle shifting effects of the phase shifters –(phase shifter ratio taken
as 1.p.u

(c) In (4.26) and (4.27), the voltage magnitude terms appearing on the left side of each element
of matrix are transferred to the right hand side of the equation.

4-6
(d) The voltage magnitude term appearing on the right of each element of the matrix in (4.26)
are set as 1.p.u

(e) In equation (4.27), the voltage magnitude terms appearing on the right side of each element
are eliminated by cancelling the voltage magnitude terms appearing in the incremental
vector ¨_9__9_

(f) In equation (4.26), the susceptance elements are calculated neglecting the resistances.

With the above approximations, the final FDPF model becomes


[B’] ¨/ = ¨P/|V| (4.28)
[B”] ¨_V| = ¨Q/|V| (4.29)

Both B’ and B” are real, sparse matrices and have the structures of [H] and [L] respectively.

4.3.4. FDLF Algorithm

Equations (4.28) and (4.29) are solved alternatively, always using the most recent voltage values.
Each iteration cycle comprises one solution for ¨/ to update / and then one solution for ¨_V| to
update |V|. Separate convergence tests are used for (4.28) and (4.29) as

Additional Computation For P-V Bus
For each P-V bus, before computing [¨Q/|V|] Fig 4.3 during each iteration, the reactive
power generation at that bus QGk is computed using equation (4.30) and if it violates either the
upper or lower limit, then the scheduled voltage magnitude is corrected using sensitivity factor to
contain the QGk within operating limits. The sensitivity factors are computed and stored before the
start of the iteration process. The flow chart for the P-V module is given in Fig.4.4.

4.3.5. Effect of Voltage Control Parameters On System Voltage Profile And Transmission
Loss

In steady state analysis of power systems, the following parameters can be varied to effectively
improve the load bus voltage profile and reduce the transmission loss

1. Voltage magnitude settings |V|sch of generator buses .


2. Tap settings of OLTC transformers.
3. MVAR injection of fixed / switched capacitor / reactor.

4-9
By raising the levels of the voltage magnitude settings, |V|sch of generator buses, one can improve
the voltage magnitude of neighbouring load buses.

For example, considering the 6 bus sample system in Annexure 4.1, by raising the |V|sch of
generator bus 2, we can raise the voltage magnitudes of load buses 3 and 5. However, if the system
loading is very heavy, then the load bus voltage magnitude may continue to be well below the
accepted lower limit of say 0.95 per unit, inspite of raising the voltage magnitude of the only two
generator buses,1and 2, in the system. Under such operating condition, one can reduce the tap
settings of a transformer T1(connected between buses 6 and 5) and T2 (Conneted between buses 4
and 3) below 1.0 per unit to raise the voltage magnitude of buses 5 and 3. If the desired result is
not obtainable even after adjusting|V|(sch) and “a”, one can switch on more capacitor banks
available at buses 6 and 4. The system should be so designed (planned) that under the worst load
conditions expected, the adjustment of available voltage control parameters gives an accepted
voltage profile in the system.

It should be noted that in the above exercise of raising the voltage level of load buses; while
increasing |V|(sch) and the quantum of switched capacitors raise the voltage level of all the buses in
the system, the under tapping (a<1.0) of an OLTC transformer raises the voltage level of the non-
tap side but reduces the voltage level of the tap side.

During the above exercise of improving the voltage level of load buses using voltage – control
parameters one can note that the system transmission loss reduces to the minimum level if the
system voltage profile is made as flat as possible, by lifting the load bus voltage nearer to that of
the generator buses.

4.3.6. Contingency Load Flow Analysis


Contingency Load Flow analysis or outage study in a power system is concerned with verifying
whether the system will continue to remain in a “normal state” (with all the bus voltages and the
line/transformer flows with in their operational limits) even after the occurrence of a contingency
which may be either outage of a line / transformer or outage of a generator unit. If a base case state
and all its possible post-contingency states are “normal” then that base case state is said to be a
“secure state”. Contingency Load Flow analysis is done both during the planning phase and
operational planning phase of a system in order to design a secure system and to maintain it always
secure.

Line outage can be simulated using any Load Flow package by simply removing the line from the
network and running the package for the base case loading and generator schedule.

Generator outage can also be simulated using any Load Flow package provided the information on
how the lost generation is distributed between the available generators is known. The Load Flow
package should be run on base case network configuration and loadings but with the generation
schedule adjusted for the lost generation and rescheduled generation.

For each post – contingency state, a statement showing the line / transformer loading violations
and bus voltage violation should be prepared.

4.3.7. Maximum Loadability With Reference To Voltage Stability Limit
In recent years, power systems all over the world have been found to experience a new kind of
disturbance known as voltage instability. Voltage instability is a dynamic phenomena pertaining to
load which usually occurs when the system is heavily loaded and because of the limitation of
generation – transmission system in supplying the increasing reactive power requirement of the
load bus. When a bus load exceeds a specific limit termed as the loadability limit , the bus voltage
gradually reduces to zero. The steady-state aspect of voltage stability and the existence of a
loadability limit can be demonstrated through the two bus system (single load infinite bus system)
given in Fig.4.5.

Complex power flowing out of the P-Q bus to the load is


P+jQ = VI* = V{(E-V) / jX}* (4.30)

Substituting V = |V| ?0 and E = |E| ? 0 in equation(4.30) we get


3M4 ^_9__(_ FRV MVLQ   -|V|2} (j/X)
= - _9__(_ ; VLQ – j{(|V|2 X) – (|V| |E| /; FRV `
P = - _9__(_; VLQ  
Q = -(|V|2;  _9__(_; FRV  (4.32)
Equation (4.31) and (4.32) on manipulation yield
X2P2 = |V|2 |E|2 sin2 
[XQ + |V|2]2 = |V|2 |E|2 cos2 

Adding equations (4.33) and (4.34) we obtain

|V|2 |E|2 = X2 P2 + X2 Q2 +|V|4 + 2*XQ|V|2

|V|4 +|V|2 (2QX - |E|2) +X2 (P2 + Q2) = 0 (4.35)

Solving (4.35) we obtain

|V| = {(0.5|E|2 - QX) ± [0.25 |E|4 – QX|E|2 – P2 X2]1/2}1/2 (4.36)

Defining normalized variables as

Pn ¨3 ( 2
/X) ; Qn ¨4 ( 2/X) ; |Vn| = |V| / |E| (4.37)
4-11
Using these normalized variables equation (4.36) becomes

|Vn| = (0.5-Qn) ± (0.25-Qn-Pn2)1/2 ½

Equation (4.38) reduces to

|Vn| = [(0.5-PnWDQ- “  -PnWDQ--Pn2)1/2]1/2 (4.39)

For a given bus loading,P1 (and hence Pn1) two values of voltage magnitude solution are obtained
from equation(4.39);|VUn1|, the upper voltage solution and |VLn1|, the lower voltage solution (refer
Fig 4.6). While the upper voltage solution is practically acceptable, the lower voltage solution is
not. By varying the value of Pn from zero upwards one can obtain a pair of voltage solution for
each Pn and hence plot the P-V curve in Fig 4.6. It is clear from the curve that there exists a
maximum deliverable power through the given transmission line, Pn max for which only one voltage
solution exists. The condition for the maximum transferable power is obtained from equation
(4.39) by setting the expression within the inner square root to zero as

P2n max + Pn maxWDQ -– 0.25 =0 (4.40)

The expression for Pn max is obtained by solving equation (4.40) as

Pn max = 0.5 (1-VLQ- FRV - 

The voltage under this condition is from (4.39)

From the Fig 4.6, the voltage stability margin (in p.u. MW) available at the operating state Pn1 is
the distance between Pn max and Pn1.

The P-V curve in a multi – node power system can be drawn for the voltage magnitude of a weak
P-Q bus by increasing either the load of that bus alone, or the total load of a group of P-Q buses
belonging to a weak area or the total load of the system. The abscissa can be either the MW load, P
or the load factor k which is the ratio of the actual load to the nominal load of the bus / area /
system.

4.3.8. Available Transfer Capability


All over the world, power systems are being deregulated, restructured and privatized with an
objective to introduce competition and to improve the efficiency and economy of operation. Single
utility is divided into different independent organizations such as Gencos, Transcos and Discos.
Gencos and Discos are given open access to transmission grid. An Independent System Operator
(ISO) regulates and maintain the grid sale of power (MW) between these Gencos and Discos is
encouraged and these transactions are called bilateral transactions.

In a “Day -Ahead Market”, ISO invites from various pairs of Gencos and Discos, the details of
“Bilateral transactions” ente red into by them over and above the “Pool transactions” already
finalized. The ISO runs a computer program called Congestion Management and determines the
maximum quantum of these bilateral transactions that can be permitted in the grid tomorrow
without violating the transmission line and bus voltage operating limits. The ISO implements these
transactions the next day.

The market participants, gencos and discos, need to know the “Available Transfer Capacity
(ATC)” between various source nodes (Genco buses) , and sink nodes (Disco buses) of the gird
tomorrow in order to finalize these bilateral transactions. ATC between a source node ‘k’ and a
sink node ‘m’ is defined as the difference between the “Total Transfer Capacity (TTC)” of MW
power between nodes k and m and the base case MW flow (BCMW) between k and m.

ATCkm = TTCkm – BCMWkm (4.43)

The TTCkm is the maximum MW power that can be transferred in the system between the source
node k and the sink node m without violating the line flow and bus voltage operating limits.
ATCkm can be determined by conducting repeated Load Flow analysis on the system starting with
the base case load and increasing the generation at the kth bus and demand at the mth bus by certain
percentage until any of the line flow or bus voltage constraints is just violated. The increased
generation/load over the base case is the ATCkm.

The ISO needs to announce over the internet periodically for the benefit of market participants,
ATC between different pairs of nodes to enable the participants to decide their bilateral
transactions for the next day. Hence computation of ATC is an important task of the ISO to be
performed repeatedly every day, a number of times. Load Flow analysis is one of the tools
available for computing ATC. But it is a trial and error approach and it takes considerable time.
Optimal Load Flow tools are available for quickly determining ATC’s.

loading of the 6 bus system in Annexure 4.1 by trial and error approach through repeated
load flow solutions using FDLF package for different combinations of generator voltage
magnitude settings, Vg, off-nominal tap ratios of transformers, and reactive power of shunt
elements. The final optimal state obtained must be a “feasible state” so that all the bus
voltages are within 0.9 p.u and 1.05 p.u, all the line / transformer flows are within their
continuous ratings and the transmission loss should be the minimum.

4.5.3 On the optimal state obtained for the 6 bus system in exercise 4.5.2. Carry out contingency

that the system load factor, k corresponding to this base case demand is 100 percent.

demand factor by 10 percent. Allocate the increased system demand equally to generator
buses 1 and 2 and obtain the load flow solution. Repeat the process by increasing the factor
k successively until the voltage instability occurs (indicated by the non-convergence of
Load Flow solution). Identify the weakest load bus and draw the P.V. curve (abscissa P is
represented by the system demand factor k) for that bus. Also obtain the voltage stability
Margin (MW Index) at different operating states of the system.
