# Bus Impedance Matrix

Zbus
What is the Bus Impedance Matrix?

## • It is the square matrix obtained

by inverting the bus
• It is important and very useful
in making fault calculations.

2
What is the Bus Impedance Matrix?

## • It has two parts:

–The impedance elements on the
principal diagonal are called driving-
point impedance of the nodes.
–The off-diagonal elements are
called the transfer impedances of
the nodes.

How to Formulate the Bus
Impedance Matrix?
• First Method: Invert Ybus with matrix inversion
– Example: Find the inverse of the following matrix.

## – First, I write down the entries the matrix A, but I write

them in a double-wide matrix:

• First Method: Invert Ybus with matrix inversion
– Now I'll do matrix row operations to convert the left-hand side of the double-wide
into the identity. (Similar to Gauss-Jordan in Numerical Methods)

• First Method: Invert Ybus with matrix inversion

## – Now that the left-hand side of the double-wide

contains the identity, the right-hand side contains the
inverse. That is, the inverse matrix is the following:

## – Complete Zbus by modifying the matrix and adding the

impedances one by one.

5. Since the matrix is now 4X4, the fourth row and column elements
are eliminated to preserve a 3X3 matrix since there are only
three buses. It is done using Node Elimination method.

Impedance Matrix?
• Second Method: Direct Determination
The matrix is now 3X3 which means all 3 buses are
accounted for. So, to add the remaining impedances
use:
