Preface to the Third Edition
Sincethe appearance the secondedition in 1989,the overall energy situation of has changed considerably and this has generatedgreat interest in nonconventionaland renewableenergy sources,energyconservationand management, power reforms and restructuringand distributedarrddispersed generation. Chapter t has been therefore,enlargedand completely rewritten. In addition, the influences of environmentalconstraintsare also discussed. The present edition, like the earlier two, is designed for a two-semester course at the undergraduate level or for first-semesterpost-graduate study. Modern power systemshave grown larger and spreadover larger geographical areawith many interconnections betweenneighbouringsystems.Optimal planning,operationand control of such large-scale systemsrequire advanced computer-based techniques many of which are explainedin the student-oriented and reader-friendlymannerby meansof numericalexamplesthroughout this book. Electric utility engineers will also be benefittedby the book as it will preparethem more adequatelyto face the new challenges. The style of writing 'Ihe is amenable self-study. to wide rangeof topicsfacilitates versarile selection of chaptersand sectionsfbr completion in the semester time frame. Highlights of this edition are the five new chapters.Chapter 13 deals with power system security. Contingency analysis and sensitivity factors are described. analytical framework is developedto control bulk power systems An in sucha way that securityis enhanced. Everythingseems have a propensity to to fail. Power systemsare no exception.Power systemsecuritypracticestry to control and operatepower systemsin a defensivepostureso that the effects of theseinevitable failures are minimized. Chapter 14 is an introduction to the use of stateestimationin electric power systems.We have selectedLeast SquaresEstimationto give basic solution. External system equivalencing and treatment of bad data are also discussed. The economics of power transmissionhas always lured the planners to transmit as much power as possible through existing transmission lines. Difficulty of acquiring the right of way for new lines (the corridor crisis) has always motivated the power engineersto develop compensatorysystems. Therefore, Chapter 15 addresses compensationin power systems.Both series and shunt compensationof linqs have been thoroughly discussed. Concepts of SVS, STATCOM and FACTS havc-been briefly introduced. Chapter 16 covers the important topic of load forecasting technique. Knowing load is absolutelyessentialfor solving any power systemproblem. Chapter 17 dealswith the important problem of voltagestability.Mathematical formulation, analysis, state-of-art, future trends and challenges are discussed.

Preface to the First
Mathematical modellingand solutionon digital computers the only practical is approach to systems analysis and planning studies for a modern day power system with its large size, complex and integrated nature. The stage has, therefore,been reachedwhere an undergraduate must be trained in the latest techniques analysisof large-scale of power systems. similar needalso exists A in the industry wherea practisingpower systemengineeris constantly facedwith the challengeof the rapidly advancingfield. This book has bedndesignedto fulfil this need by integratingthe basic principlesof power systemanalysisillustrated through the simplestsystemstructurewith analysistechniques practical size for systems. this book large-scale In systemanalysisfollows as a naturalextension of the basicprinciples.The form and level of someof the well-known techniques are presented in such a manner that undergraduates can easily grasp and appreciatethem. The book is designedfor a two-semester course at the undergraduate level. With a judicious choice of advancedtopics, some institutionsmay also frnd it useful for a first course for postgraduates. The readeris expectedto have a prior grounding in circuit theory and electrical machines. He should also have been exposed to Laplace transform, linear differential equations, optimisation techniquesand a first course in control theory. Matrix analysisis applied throughoutthe book. However, a knowledge of simple matrix operations would suffice and these are summarisedin an appendixfbr quick reference. The digital computerbeing an indispensable tool for power systemanalysis, computationalalgorithms for various systemstudiessuch as load flow, fault level analysis,stability, etc. have been included at appropriateplacesin the book. It is suggested that where computerfacilities exist, students shouldbe encouraged to build computer programs for these studies using the algorithms provided. Further, the students can be asked to pool the various programs for more advancedand sophisticated studies,e.g. optimal scheduling. importantnovel An featureof the book is the inclusion of the latestand practicallyuseful topics like unit commitment, generation reliability, optimal thermal scheduling,optimal hydro-thermalschedulingand decoupledload flow in a text which is primarily meantfor undergraduates. The introductory chapter contains a discussion on various methods of electricalenergygenerationand their techno-economic comparison. glimpse is A given into the future of electricalenergy.The readeris alsoexposed the Indian to power scenariowith facts and figures. Chapters2 and3 give the transmission line parameters theseare included and for the sakeof completness the text. Chapter4 on the representation power of of gives the steadystatemodelsof the synchronous systemcomponents machineand the circuit modelsof compositepower systemsalong with the per unit method.

preface ro rhe Frrst Edition W Chapter5 deals with the performanceof transmissionlines. The load flow problem is introducedright at this stagethroughthe simple two-bus systemand basicconceptsof watt and var control are illustrated.A brief treatmentof circle
concept of load flow and line compensation. ABCD constants are generally well covered in the circuit theory course and are, therefore, relegated to an appendix. Chapter 6 gives power network modelling and load flow analysis, while Chapter 7 gives optimal system operation with both approximate and rigorous treatment. Chapter 8 deals with load frequency control wherein both conventional and modern control approaches have been adopted for analysis and design. Voltage control is briefly discussed. Chapters 9-l l discuss fault studies (abnormal system operation). The synchronous machine model for transient studies is heuristically introduced to the reader. Chapter l2 emphasisesthe concepts of various types <lf stability in a power system. In particular the concepts of transient stability is well illustrated through the equal area criterion. The classical numerical solution technique of the swing equation as well as the algorithm for large system stability are advanced. Every concept and technique presented is well supported through examples employing mainly a two-bus structure while sometimes three- and four-bus illustrations wherever necessary have also been used. A large number of unsolved problems with their answers are included at the end of each chapter. These have been so selected that apart from providing a drill they help the reader develop a deeper insight and illustrate some points beyond what is directly covered by the text. The internal organisation of various chapters is flexible and permits the teacher to adapt them to the particular needs of the class and curriculum. If desired, some of the advanced level topics could be bypassed without loss of continuity. The style of writing is specially adapted to self-study. Exploiting this fact a teacher will have enough time at his disposal to extend the coverage of this book to suit his particular syllabus and to include tutorial work on the numerous examples suggestedin the text. The authors are indebted to their colleagues at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani and the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi for the encouragement and various useful suggestionsthey received from them while writing this book. They are grateful to the authorities of the Birla lnstitute of Technology and Science, Pilani and the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi for providing facilities necessary for writing the book. The authors welcome any constructive criticism of the book and will be grateful for any appraisal by the readers. I J NlcRArH D P KorHlnr

The capacitance togetherwith conductance forms the shunt admittanceof a transmission line. As mentioned earlierthe conductance the result of leakage is over the surface of insulatorsand is of negligible order. When an alternating voltageis appliedto the line, the line capacitance drawsa leading sinusoidal current called the charging current which is drawn even when the line is open circuited at the far end. The line capacitance being proportionalto its length,the chargingcurrentis negligible lines lessthan 100km long. For longerlines for the capacitance becomes increasingly importantand has to be accounted for. 3.2 ELECTRIC FIELD OF A LONG STRAIGHT CONDUCTOR

In the above relationship V,o'r, the prefault bus voltagesare assumedto be known from a load flow study. Zuu, matix of the short-circuit study network of Fig. 9.21 canbe obtainedby the inversionof its furr5matrix as in Example in 9.6 or the Zru, building algorithm presented Section9.7.It should be observed here that the SC study network of Fig. 9.2I is different from the correspondingload flow study network by the fact'that the shunt branches do reactances not appearin the load flow study to corresponding the generator are network. Further, in formulating the SC study network, the load impedances much larger than the impedances of lines and ignored, these being very ginerators. Of course synchronousmotors must be included in Zuur tormulation for the SC study.

In Chapter7, we have beenprimarily concerned with the economical operation of a power system' An equally important factor in the operation of a power system is the desire to maintain system security. System security involves practicessuitably designedto keep the system operating when componentsfail. Besideseconomizingon fuel cost and minimizrngemission of gases(co, cor, Nox, sor), the power systern should be operationally,.secure,,. operation_ An ally "secure" power system is one with low probability of, systern black out (collapse) equipment or damage. the pro."r, uf cascading If failurescontinses. the systernas a whole or its tnajor parts may completely collapse. This is normally referred to as system blackout. All these aspects require security c ons t r a i n ep o w e r s y s te m p ti mi z a ti on C O). d o (S Since security and economy normally have conflicting requirements, it is inappfopriate treat them separately. to The fina.laim of economy is the security lunction of the utility company.The energy management system (EMS) is to operate the system at minimum cost, with the guaranteed alleviation of emergency conditions.The emergency condition will dependon the severity of t iolat io n s f o p e ra ti n g i rn i ts(b ra n c h l ow sand bus o l f' vol tagel i mi ts).The most severeviolationsresult fiom contingencies. irnportant An part of securitystudy, therefbre,moves around the power system'sability to withstanrjthe effects of contingencies.A particular systemstateis said to be secureonly with reference to one or more specific contingency cases, and a given set of quantities monitoredfor violation. Most power systemsare operated in such a way that any singlecontingencywill not leaveother.o-pon"nts heavily overloaded,so that cascading failures are avoided.

Sll I Most of the security related functions deal with static "snapshots" of the power system.They have to be executedat intervals compatiblewith the rate of changeof systemstate.This quasi-static approach to a large extent,the is, only practical approachat present,since dynamic analysisand optimization are conslder4bly mole {!fficu!! 4nd cqmpurallo44lly 1aqtelime corrsulurg, System security can be said to comprise of three major functions that are carried out in an energycontrol centre: (i) systemmonitoring, (ii) contingency analysis,and (iii) comectiveaction analysis. System monitoring suppliesthe power systemoperators dispatcherswith or pertinentup-to-dateinformation on the conditionsof the power system on real time basisas load and generation change.Telemetrysystemsrneasure, monitor and transmit the data, voltages,currents,current flows and the statusof circuit breakersand switchesin every substation a transrnission in network. Further, other critical and important information such as frequency, generator outputs and transformertap positions can also be telemetered. Digital computers in a control centre then processthe telemetereddata and place them in a data base form and inform the operatorsin case of an overload or out of limit voltage. Important data are also displayed on large size monitors. Alarms or warnings may be given if required. Stateestimation (Chapter 14) is normally used in such systemsto combine telemetereddata to give the best estimate (in statisticalsense)of the curreltt systemcondition or "state". Such systemsotten work with supervi$orycontrol systemsto help operatorscontrol circuit breakersand operateswitches and taps remotely. These systemstogetherare called SCADA (supervisorycontrol and data acquisition)systelns. The second ma-ior security function is contingency analysis. Modern operation computers havecontingency analysis programs storedin them.These loreseepossiblcsystetntroubles(outages)beforethey occur.They study outage events and alert the operators to any potential overloads or serious voltage vi ol ati tl ns. For exalnple, he sir nplest ir r m of cont ingency t f analysis can be put together with a standard LF program as studied in Chapter 6, along with proceduresto set up the load flow dafa for each outageto be studied by the LF plogram. This allows the system operatorsto locate def'ensiveoperating stateswhere no single contingencyevent will generateoverloadsand/or voltage violation:;.This analysis thus evolves operatingconstraintswhich may be cntpi oycdin t hc liD ( ccot r olnic dispat ch) and UC ( unitcor nnr it r nclrpr ogr ar r r . t) Thus contingencyanalysiscarricsout ornergcncy identil'ication ancl"what if'' simulations. The third major security function, corrective action analysis, permits the operatorto changethe operationof the power systemif a contingencyanalysis program predicts a serious problem in the event of the occurrenceof a certain outage.Thus this provides preventive and post-contingency control. A simple example of corrective action is the shifting of generationfrom one station to another.This may result in change in power flows and causing a change in loading on overloadedlines.

Dyliacco [13] and further clarified by Fink and Carlsen l23l in order to define relevant EMS (Energy ManagementSystem) functions. Stott et. al [15] have also presenteda more practical static security level diagram (see Fig. 13.1) by incorporating correctively secure(Level 2) andcorrectableemergency(Level4) security levels. In the Fig. 13.1, arrowed linep represent involuntary transitions between Levels 1 to 5 due to contingencies..The removal of violations from Level 4 normally requiresEMS directed "corrective rescheduling" or "remedial action" bringing the system to Level 3, from where it can return to either Level I or 2 by further EMS, directed "preventive rescheduling" depending upon the desired operational security objectives. Levels I and 2 representnormal power system operation.Level t has the ideal security but is too conservativeand costly. The power system survives any of the credible contingencieswithout relying on any post-contingency corrective action. Level2 is more economical,but dependson post-contingencycorrective rescheduling to alleviate violations without loss of load, within a specified period of time. Post-contingencyoperating limits might be different from their pre-contingencyvalues. 13.3 SECURITY ANALYSIS

System security can be broken down into two major functions that are carried out in an operationscontrol centre: (i) security assessment, and (ii) security control. The tormer gives the security level of the system operating state. The latter determines the appropriate security constrained scheduling required to optimally attain the target security level. The security functions in an EMS can be executedin 'real time' and 'study' modes. Real time application functions have a particular need for computing speed and reliability. 'fhe static securit.v level of a power systemis characterised the presence by or rrtherwise of emergency operating conditions (limit violations) in its actual (pre-contingency) or potential (post-contingency)operating states. System security assessment the process by which any such violations are detected. is System e.:^ sstlt€rrt involves two func tions: s€ (i) system monitoring and (ii) contingencyanalysis.Systemmonitoring provides the operator of the power system with pertinent up-to-date information on the current condition:;clf the power system.

Only a small proportion of work on optimal power flow (OPF) has taken into account the security constraints.The most successfulapplications have beento the security constrained MW dispatch OPF sub-problem. The contingencyconstrainedvoltageivar reschedulingproblem, as of the writing of this text, still remains to be solved to a satisf desree. The total number of contingency constraintsimposed on SCO is enormous. The SCO or contingency constrained OPF problem is solved with or without first optimizing with respectto the base case(precontingency)constraints.The general procedure adopted is as follows: (i) Contingency analysis is carried out and cases with violations or near violations are identified. (ii) The SCO problem is solved. (iii) The rescheduling in Step 1 might have created new violations, and therefore step 1 should be repeatedtill no violations exist. Hence, SCO represents potentially massiveadditional computing effort. a An excellent comprehensiveoverview of various available methods is presentedby Stott et. al [15]. There is still great potential for further improvement in power system security control. Better problem formulations, theory, computer solution methods and implementation techniquesare required.
