Abstract

Load flow study is playing significant role in power system analysis and design. It is necessary for planning, operating, fault analysis and exchange of power between utilities. In the beginning, we have to find the real and reactive power at sending and receiving end of the transmission line as well as we find the magnitude and phase angle of voltage at each bus. There are number of methods to calculate the load flow studies such as Newton-Raphson, Gauss-Seidel, Fast decoupled method. In this project, I am using Newton-Raphson method to calculate the Load flow studies. The objective of this project is to calculate the real and reactive power, magnitude of voltage and phase angle. Primarily, this report comprises the introduction of the project, specification of project, design of three buses system and flow chart. Newton-Raphson method coding by using Matlab software, simulation output, simulation results will be compared with number of iterations.

Introduction

Load flow study is study of power system under steady-state condition that means the system is working in balance condition. Load flow analysis is done to find the value of unknown bus voltage of an interconnected system that is

magnitude and $\delta$

angle. Active and reactive power flows from the generation to the load via a power network buses and branches the flow of active and reactive power is known as load flow studies. Load flow study gives us a arranged mathematical path for determine of different bus voltages phase angle active and reactive power flows via various branches generator and load under steady-state condition. The main motive of load flow study is to obtain the magnitude and phase angle of the voltage at every bus and the real and reactive power flowing in each power line. There are number of methods to calculate the load flow study such as Newton-Raphson, Gauss-Seidel, Fast decoupled method. In this project, we are using Newton-Raphson method with Matlab to calculate the load flow equations.

Important steps involved to calculate the load flow studies:-

Step 1:- find the unknown bus voltage and phase angle ׀V׀, ∆δ

Step 2:- Find active power and reactive power (PG, QG)

Step 3:- find complex power flow in the whole power system

Step 4:- find power losses in the network

2. Description of research and final specifications

In this project we will design the three bus system load flow diagram and explain the each parameter of the circuit.

2.1 Classification of buses in the load flow studies Classification of Buses                                      Ref. 2, 6

• Load bus:- Generator is not connected to load bus. Real (P) and reactive (Q) power is specified on this bus and it is desired to calculate the voltage magnitude and phase angle through load flow results.
• Voltage controlled or Generator bus:-   Voltage magnitude kept constant at generator bus. The generator connected with generating station can be controlled by adjusting the prime mover and voltage magnitude can be controlled by adjusting the generator excitation. At voltage controlled bus we knows the real power and voltage magnitude but reactive power and phase angle are unspecified .Now obtain the phase angle of voltage and the reactive power (Q).
• Slack or Swing bus:-for the slack bus, we have to assume that the voltage magnitude ׀V׀and voltage phase angle are known or voltage phase angle assume to be zero. We need to obtain the real (P) and reactive (Q) via load flow calculations.

2.2 Steps for calculation Newton-Raphson technique:- The steps for solution of load flow problems using newton- Raphson method is explained as follows :-

Step1. From pu YBUS (admittance matrix to impedance matrix)

Step2. Assume the initial values for all buses except the slack bus or swing bus

Voltage – controlled (generator) bus

3. Design of the System

3.1 Newton- Raphson Method:-`

N-R method is most valuable for solving the non-linear equations. This method is faster and sure to cover most cases as compared to the Gauss- Seidel method. It’s the most powerful practical method for solving load flow solution of any power system networks.

The Newton-Raphson method is a technique to find the approximations to a solution or root of an equation $f\left(x\right)=0$

the method uses differentiation because it relies the equation of tangents to the graph of $y=f\left(x\right).$

It produces the numerical sequences of values get closer and closer to the real root. For instance we may wish to solve the equations that can be written in the form $f\left(x\right)=0.$

In this equivalent problem to solving values of x for which is graph of $y\left(x\right)=0$

that intersects the horizontal axis, as shown in the diagram. When x has the particular values

then roots of y lies at zero position. In other terms

, and so the roots of

$y$      In this figure, we will get the solution of

can be located by finding values of $x$

where the graph of $y=f\left(x\right)$

intersects of x axis.    P Presume a root exists at some unknown value $x=a$

as illustrated in the diagram. Suppose we know the estimate of the roots  $x=x0$

. So, we can draw a tangent to the curve $y=f\left(x\right)$

at the position  $P\left(x0,f\left(x0\right)$

, and use the x value at position where the tangent cuts the

as a better estimate of the root.

To commence, we obtain the equation of the tangent to

It will get from $y=\mathit{mx}+c.$

The gradient of m, will equal $\frac{\partial y}{\partial x}$

evaluated at $0$

, which is context of the Newton-Raphson method. We can write as ${f}^{‘}\left(x0\right)$

. The equation becomes $y={f}^{‘}\left(x0\right)x+c.$

Now find the constant of

. The tangent passes through the point $\left(x0,f\left(x0\right)\right),$

and so $f\left(x0\right)={f}^{‘}\left(x0\right)x0+c,$

from which $c=f\left(x0\right)–{f}^{‘}\left(x0\right)x0.$

Here, we know the value of $x0$

and calculate $f\left(x0\right)–{f}^{‘}\left(x0\right)x0,$

and so  can $c$

can be evaluated. Finally, we will get the tangent is

In the diagram we can see that the tangent will cut the horizontal axis when $y=0$

and $x=x1,$

that is when

$0={f}^{‘}\left(x0\right)x1+f\left(x0\right)–{f}^{‘}\left(x0\right)x0$

Rewriting this formula to make $x1$

the subject gives

$x1=x0–\frac{f\left(x0\right)}{{f}^{‘}\left(x0\right)}$

Here, $x0$

is our first approximation to the root. This formula allows us to calculate a better estimate of the root, denoted by $x1.$

We learn how load flow equations are apply on any working power system. The main target of this project the information obtain from the load flow is the magnitude and phase angle of the voltage at each bus and calculates the real and reactive power is flowing in each power line. In the present scenario, the most accurate and fast method is the Newton-Raphson for analysis the load flow study for any power system network. Nowadays,   Newton-Raphson method is more popular because of its high versatility, reliability and accuracy for calculation any load flow system. In second part of the project we will analysis this `power system network with MATLAB coding. It is easy to repeat the long iteration with Matlab coding. In the final part of the coding we got accurate results of the voltages, real and reactive power for each bus.
