3.4 THEORETICAL BACKGROUND
3.4.1 Need For Load Flow Analysis

Load Flow analysis, is the most frequently performed system study by electric utilities. This analysis is performed on a symmetrical steady-state operating condition of a power system under \u201cnormal\u201d mode of operation and aims at obtaining bus voltages and line / transformer flows for a given load condition. This information is essential both for long term planning and next day operational planning. In long term planning, load flow analysis, helps in investigating the effectiveness of alternative plans and choosing the \u201cbest\u201d plan for system expansion to meet the projected operating state. In operational planning, it helps in choosing the \u201cbest\u201d unit commitment plan and generation schedules to run the system efficiently for the next day\u2019s load condition without violating the bus voltage and line flow operating limits.

3.4.2 Description of Load Flow Problem

In the load flow analysis, the system is considered to be operating under steady state balanced condition and per phase analysis is used. With reasonable assumptions and approximations, a power system under this condition may be represented by a power network as shown by the single-line diagram in Annexure 3.1.

The network consists of a number of buses (nodes) representing either generating stations or bulk power substations, switching stations interconnected by means of transmission lines or power transformers. The bus generation and demand are characterized by complex powers flowing into and out of the buses respectively. Each transmission line is

Load Flow analysis is essentially concerned with the determination of complex bus voltages at all buses, given the network configuration and the bus demands. Let the given system demand (sum of all the bus demands) be met by a specific generation schedule. A generation schedule is nothing but a combination of MW generation (chosen within their ratings) of the various spinning generators the total of which should match the given system demand plus the transmission losses. It should be noted that there are many generation schedules available to match the given system demand and one such schedule is chosen for load flow analysis.

The \u201cIdeal\u201d Load Flow problem is stated as follows:
Given: The network configuration (bus admittance matrix), and all the bus power injections
(bus injection refers to bus generation minus bus demand)
To determine: The complex voltages at all the buses.
The steady state of the system is given by the state vectorX defined as

Once the \u2018state\u2019 of the system is known, all the other quantities of interest in the power
network can be computed.
The above statement of Load Flow problem will be modified later after taking into account
certain practical constraints.
3.4.3 Development of Load Flow Model
The Load Flow model in complex form is obtained by writing one complex power
matching equation at each bus.

Referring to Fig 3.1 (b) the complex power injection (generation minus demand) at the kth
bus is equal to the complex power flowing into the network at that bus which is given by
PIk + JQIk = Pk + jQk

(3.1)
In expanded form
(PGk - PDk) + j (QGk - QDk) = VkIk*

(3.2)
The network equation relating bus voltage vectorV with bus current vectorI is
YV = I
(3.3)
Taking the kth component ofI from (3.3) and substituting for Ik* in (3.2) we get the power

In a Load Flow package after solving equation (3.4) for complex bus voltages using any iterative method, the active and reactive power flows in all the lines/ transformers are to be computed. A common
