1 INTRODUCTION
Power is an essential pre-requisite for the progress of any country. The modern power system
has features unique to it self. It is the largest man made system in existence and is the most
complex system. The power demand is more than doubling every decade.
Planning, operation and control of interconnected power system poses a variety of
challenging problems, the solution of which requires extensive application of mathematical
methods from various branches.
Thomas Alva Edison was the first to conceive an electric power station and operate it in
Newyork in 1882. Since then, power generation originally confined to steam engines expanded
using (steam turbines) hydro electric turbines, nuclear reactors and others.
The inter connection of the various generating stations to load centers through EHV and
UHV transmission lines necessitated analytical methods for analysing various situations that
arise in operation and control of the system.
Power system analysis is the subject in the branch of electrical power engineering
which deals with the determination of voltages at various buses and the currents that flow in
the transmission lines operating at different voltage levels.
1.1 The Electrical Power System
The electrical power system is a complex network consisting of generators, loads, transmission
lines, transformers, buses, circuit breakers etc. For the analysis of a power system in operation
2 Power System Analysis
a suitable model is needed. This model basically depends upon the type of problem on hand.
Accordingly it may be algebraic equations, differential equations, transfer functions etc. The
power system is never in steady state as the loads keep changing continuously.
However, it is possible to conceive a quasistatic state during which period the loads
could be considered constant. This period could be 15 to 30 minutes. In this state power flow
equations are non-linear due to the presence of product terms of variables and trigonometric
terms. The solution techniques involves numerical (iterative) methods for solving non-linear
algebraic equations. Newton-Raphson method is the most commonly used mathematical
technique. The analysis of the system for small load variations, wherein speed or frequency
and voltage control may be required to maintain the standard values, transfer function and state
variable models are better suited to implement proportional, derivative and integral controllers
or optimal controllers using Kalman's feed back coefficients. For transient stability studies
involving sudden changes in load or circuit condition due to faults, differential equations
describing energy balance over a few half-cycles of time period are required. For studying the
steady state performance a number of matrix models are needed.
Consider the power System shown in Fig. 1.1. The equivalent circuit for the power
system can be represented as in Fig. 1.2. For study of fault currents the equivalent circuit in
Fig. 1.2 can be reduced to Fig. 1.3 upto the load terminals neglecting the shunt capacitances of
the transmission line and magnetizing reactances of the transformers.

While the reactances of transformers and lines which are static do not change under
varying conditions of operation, the machine reactances may change and assume different
values fot different situations. Also, composite loads containing 3-phase motors, I-phase
motors, d-c motors, rectifiers, lighting loads, heaters. welding transformers etc., may have
very different models depending upon the composition of its constituents.
The control of a turbo generator set to suit to the varying load requirement requires a
model. For small variations, a linearized model is convenient to study. Such a model can be
obtained using transfer function concept and control can be achieved through classical or
modern control theory. This requires modeling of speed governor, turbo generator and power
system itself as all these constitute the components of a feedback loop for control. The
ultimate objective of power system control is to maintain continuous supply of power with
acceptable quality. Quality is defined in terms of voltage and frequency.
1.2 Network Models
Electrical power network consists of large number of transmission lines interconnected in a
fashion that is dictated by the development of load centers. This interconnected network
configuration expands continuously. A systematic procedure is needed to build a model that
can be constantly up-graded with increasing interconnections.
Network solutions can be carried out using Ohm's law and Kirchoff's laws.
Either e = Z . i
or i =Y. e
model can be used for steady state network solution. Thus, it is required to develop both
Z-bus and V-bus models for the network. To build such a model, graph theory and incidence
matrices will be quite convenient.
1.3 Faults and Analysis
Study of the network performance under fault conditions requires analysis of a generally
balanced network as an unbalanced network. Under balanced operation, all the three-phase
voltages are equal in magnitude and displaced from each other mutually by 120
0
(elec.). It may
be noted that unbalanced transmission line configuration is balanced in operation by transposition,
balancing the electrical characteristics.
4 Power System Analysis
Under fault conditions, the three-phase voltages may not be equal in magnitude and the
phase angles too may differ widely from 120
0
(elec.) even if the transmission and distribution
networks are balanced. The situation changes into a case of unbalanced excitation.
Network solution under these conditions can be obtained by using transformed variables
through different component systems involving the concept of power invariance.
In this course all these aspects will be dealt with in modeling so that at an advanced
level, analyzing and developing of suitable control strategies could be easily understood using
these models wherever necessary.
1.4 The Primitive Network
Network components are represented either by their impedance parameters or admittance
parameters. Fig (1.4) represents the impedance form, the variables are currents and voltages.
Every power system element can be described by a primitive network. A primitive network is
a set of unconnected elements.

In eqs.{lA) and (1.5) the matrices [z] or [y] contain the self impedances or self
admittances denoted by zab, ab or Yab,ab' The off-diagonal elements may in a similar way contain
the mutual impedances or mutual admittances denoted by zab, cd or Yab, cd where ab and cd are
two different elements having mutual coupling. Ifthere is no mutual coupling, then the matrices
[z] and [y] are diagonal matrices. While in general [y] matrix can be obtained by inverting the
[z] matrix, when there is no mutual coupling, elements of [y] matrix are obtained by taking
reciprocals of the elements of [z] matrix.
1.5 Power System Stability
Power system stability is a word used in connection with alternating current power systems
denoting a condition where in, the various alternators in the system remain in synchronous
with each other. Study of this aspect is very important, as otherwise, due to a variety of
changes, such as, sudden load loss or increment, faults on lines, short circuits at different
locations, circuit opening and reswitching etc., occuring in the system continuously some
where or other may create blackouts.
Study of simple power systems with single machine or a group of machines represented
by a single machine, connected to infinite bus gives an insight into the stability problem.
At a first level, study of these topics is very important for electrical power engineering
students.
2 GRAPH THEORY
2.1 Introduction
Graph theory has many applications in several fields such as engineering, physical, social and
biological sciences, linguistics etc. Any physical situation that involves discrete objects with
interrelationships can be represented by a graph. In Electrical Engineering Graph Theory is
used to predict the behaviour of the network in analysis. However, for smaller networks node
or mesh analysis is more convenient than the use of graph theory. It may be mentioned that
Kirchoff was the first to develop theory of trees for applications to electrical network. The
for larger network analysis. In this chapter a brief account of graphs theory is given that is
relevant to power transmission networks and their analysis.
2.2 Definitions
Elemellt of a Graph: Each network element is replaced by a line segment or an arc while
constructing a graph for a network. Each line segment or arc is cailed an element. Each
potential source is replaced by a short circuit. Each current source is replaced by an open
circuit.
Node or Vertex: The terminal of an element is called a node or a vertex.
T.dge: An element of a graph is called an edge.
Degree: The number of edges connected to a vertex or node is called its degree.
Graph Theory 7
Graph: An element is said to be incident on a node, if the node is a terminal of the element.
Nodes can be incident to one or more elements. The network can thus be represented by an
interconnection of elements. The actual interconnections of the elements gives a graph.
Rank: The rank of a graph is n - I where n is the number of nodes in the graph.
Sub Graph: Any subset of elements of the graph is called a subgraph A subgraph is said to
be proper if it consists of strictly less than all the elements and nodes of the graph.
Path: A path is defined as a subgraph of connected elements SLlch that not more than two
elements are connected to anyone node. If there is a path between every pair of nodes then
the graph is said to be connected. Alternatively, a graph is said to be connected if there exists
at least one path between every pair of nodes.
Planar Graph : A graph is said to be planar, if it can be drawn without-out cross over of
edges. Otherwise it is called non-planar (Fig. 2. J).
(a) (b)
Fig. 2.1 (a) Planar Graph (b) Non-Planar Graph.
Closed Path or Loop: The set of elements traversed starting from one node and returning to
the same node form a closed path or loop.
Oriented Graph: An oriented graph is a graph with direction marked for each element
Fig. 2.2(a) shows the single line diagram of a simple power network consisting of generating
stations. transmission lines and loads. Fig. 2.2(b) shows the positive sequence network
of the system in Fig. 2.2(a). The oriented connected graph is shown in Fig. 2.3 for the
same system.

2.3 Tree and Co-Tree
Tree: A tree is an oriented connected subgraph of an oriented connected graph containing all
the nodes of the graph, but, containing no loops. A tree has (n-I) branches where n is the
number of nodes of graph G. The branches of a tree are called twigs. The remaining branches
of the graph are called links or chords.
Co-tree: The links form a subgraph, not necessarily connected called co-tree. Co-tree is the
complement of tree. There is a co-tree for every tree.
For a connected graph and subgraph:
I. There exists only one path between any pair of nodes on a tree
') every connected graph has at least one tree
3. every tree has two terminal nodes and
4. the rank of a tree is n-I and is equal to the rank of the graph.
The number of nodes and the number of branches in a tree are related by
b = n-I ..... (2.1 )
If e is the total number of elements then the number of links I of a connected graph with
hranches b is given by
I==e-·h
Hence, from eq. (2.1). it can be written that
l=e-n+1
..... (2.2)
..... (2.3)
A tree and the corresponding co - tree of the graph for the system shown in Fig. 2.3 are
indicated in Fig. 2.4(a) and Fig. 2.4(b).

2.4 Basic Loops
1\ loop is obtained whenever a link is added to a tree, which is a closed path. As an example to
the tree in Fig. 2.4(a) if the link 6 is added, a loop containing the elements 1-2-6 is obtained.
Loops which contain only one link are called independent loops or hasic loops.
It can be observed that the number of basic loops is equal to the number of links given
by equation (2.2) or (2.3). Fig. 2.5 shows the basic loops for the tree in Fig. 2.4(a).

2.5 Cut-Set
A Cut set is a minimal set of branches K of a connected graph G, such that the removal of all
K branches divides the graph into two parts. It is also true that the removal of K branches
reduces the rank of G by one, provided no proper subset of this set reduces the rank of G by
one when it is removed from G.

10 Power System Analysis
The rank of the graph = (no. of nodes n - 1) = 4 - I = 3. If branches 1 and 3 are
removed two sub graphs are obtained as in Fig. 2.6(b). Thus 1 and 3 may be a cut-set. Also,
if branches 1, 4 and 3 are removed the graph is divided into two sub graphs as shown in
Fig. 2.6(c) Branches I, 4, 3 may also be a cut-set. In both the above cases the rank both of
the sub graphs is 1 + 1 = 2. It can be noted that (I, 3) set is a sub-set of (I, 4, 3) set. The cut
set is a minimal set of branches of the graph, removal of which cuts the graph into two parts.
It separates nodes of the graphs into two graphs. Each group is in one of the two sub graphs.
2.6 BasiC Cut-Sets
If each cut-set contains only one branch, then these independent cut-sets are called basic cut-
sets. In order to understand basic cut-sets select a tree. Consider a twig b
k
of the tree. If the
twig is removed the tree is separated into two parts. All the links which go from one part of
this disconnected tree to the other, together with the twig b
k
constitutes a cut-set called basic
cut-set. The orientation of the basic cut-set is chosen as to coincide with that of the branch of
the tree defining the cut-set. Each basic cut-set contains at least one branch with respect to
which the tree is defined which is not contained in the other basic cut-set. For this reason, the
n -I basic cut-sets of a tree are linearly independent.
Now consider the tree in Fig. 2.4(a).
Consider node (1) and branch or twig 1. Cut-set A contains the branch 1 and links
5 and 6 and is oriented in the same way as branch J. In a similar way C cut-set cuts the branch
3 and links 4 and 5 and is oriented in the same direction as branch 3. Finally cut-set B cutting
branch 2 and also links 4, 6 and 5 is oriented as branch 2 and the cutsets are shown in Fig. 2.7.

3 INCIDENCE MATRICES
There are several incidence matrices that are important in developing the various networks
matrices such as bus impedance matrix, branch admittance matrix etc., using singular or non
singular transformation.
These various incidence matrices are basically derived from the connectivity or incidence
of an element to a node, path, cutset or loop.
Incidence Matrices
The following incidence matrices are of interest in power network analysis.
(a) Element-node incidence matrix
(b) Bus incidence matrix
(c) Branch path incidence matrix
(d) Basic cut-set incidence matrix
(e) Basic loop incidence matrix
Of these, the bus incidence matrices is the most important one :
18 Power System Analysis
3.1 Element Node Incidence Matrix
Element node incidence matrix A shows the incidence of elements to nodes in the connected
graph. The incidence or connectivity is indicated by the operator as follows:
a = 1 if the plh element is incident to and directed away from the g the node.
pq
a = -I if the plh element is incident to and directed towards the g the node.
pq
a = 0 if the plh element is not incident to the glh node.
pq
The element-node incidence matrix will have the dimension exn where 'e' is the number
of elements and n is the number of nodes in the graph. It is denoted by A .

It can be inferred that the columns of A are linearly independent. The rank of A is less

3.2 Bus Incidence Matrix
The network in Fig. 2.2(b) contains a reference reflected in Fig. 2.3 as a reference node. [n
fact any node of the connected graph can be selected as the reference node. The matrix
obtained by deleting the column corresponding to the reference node in the element node
incidence matrix A is called bus incidence matrix A. Thus, the dimension of this matrix is
ex (n - I) and the rank will therefore be, n - 1 = b, where b is the number of branches in the
graph. Deleting the column corresponding to node (0) from Fig. 3.1 the bus-incidence matrix
for the system in Fig. 2.2(a) is obtained. This is shown in Fig. 3.2.

Branch path incidence matrix, as the name itself suggests, shows the incidence of branches to
paths in a tree. The elements of this matrix are indicated by the operators as follows:
Kpq = I If the pth branch is in the path from qth bus to reference and oriented in the
same direction.

3.6 Network Performance Equations
The power system network consists of components such as generators, transformers,
transmission lines, circuit breakers, capacitor banks etc., which are all connected together to
perform specific function. Some are in series and some are in shunt connection.
Incidence Matrices 23
Whatever may be their actual configuration, network analysis is performed either by
nodal or by loop method. In case of power system, generally, each node is also a bus. Thus.
in the bus frame of reference the performance of the power network is described by (n-1)
independent nodal equations, where n is the total number of nodes. In the impedance form the
performance equation, following Ohm's law will be
-
V ==[ZBUS] IBus
..... (3.6)
where, V BUS = Vector of bus voltages measured with respect to a reference bus.
T BUS = Vector of impressed bus currents.
[ZBUS] = Bus impedance matrix

impedances.

In a similar way, we can obtain the performance equations in the branch frame of

[Y BR] = Branch admittance matrix whose elements are short circuit driving

[ZBR] = Branch impedance matrix whose elements are open circuit driving

Like wise, in the loop frame of reference, the performance equation can be described
by I independent loop equations where I is the number of links or basic loops. In the

3.7 Network Matrices
It is indicated in Chapter - 1 that network solution can be carried out using Ohm's Law and
KirchoWs Law. The impedance model given by
e =Z. i
i =Y. e
can be used depending upon the situation or the type of problem encountered.
In network analysis students of electrical engineering are familiar with nodal analysis and mesh
analysis using Kirchoff's laws. In most of the power network solutions, the bus impedance
or bus admittance are used. Thus it is necessary to derive equations that relate these
various models.
Network matrices can be formed hy two methods:
Viz. (a) Singular transformation and
(b) Direct method
Network Matrices 25
Singular Transformations
The network matrices that are used commonly in power system analysis that can be obtained
by singular transformation are :
(ii) Bus impedance matrix
(iv) Branch impedance matrix
(v) Loop impedance matrix
3.8 Bus Admittance Matrix and Bus Impedance Matrix
The bus admittance matrix Y BUS can be obtained by determining the relation between the
variables and parameters of the primitive network described in section (2.1) to bus quantities
of the network using bus incidence matrix. Consider eqn. (1.5).
-
i+ j =[y]u
Pre multiplying by [N], the transpose of the bus incidence matrix
[A I] i + [A I] ] = A I [y] u ..... (3.13)
Matrix A shows the connections of elements to buses. [AI] i thus is a vector, wherein,
each element is the algebraic sum of the currents that terminate at any of the buses. Following
Kirchoff's current law, the algebraic sum of currents at any node or bus must be zero. Hence
[AI] i = 0 ..... (3.14)
Again [AI] J term indicates the algebraic sum of source currents at each of the buses
and must equal the vector of impressed bus currents. Hence,
IBus = [AI]]
..... (3.15)
Substituting eqs. (3.14) and (3.15) into (3.13)
I BUS = [A I ] [y] U
..... (3.16)
In the bus frame, power in the network is given by
[IBus']IYBus = P

Power in the primitive network is given by

26 Power System Analysis
Power must be invariant, for transformation of variables to be invariant. That is to say,
that the bus frame of referee corresponds to the given primitive network in performance.
Power consumed in both the circuits is the same.
Therefore

i.e.,
Substituting eqn. (3.22) into (3.16)
IBUS == [N] [y] [A] V BUS
From eqn. 3.7
I BUS == [y BUS] V BUS
Hence
[Y BUS] = [N] [y] [A]

3.9 Branch Admittance and Branch Impedance Matrices
In order to obtain the branch admittance matrix Y BR' the basic cut-set incidence matrix [8], is
used. The variables and parameters of primitive network are related to the variables and
parameters of the branch admittance network.
For the primitive network

Network Matrices 27
It is clear that the matrix [B] shows the incidence of elements to basic cut-sets.
Each element of the vector [Bt] i is the algebraic sum of the currents through the
elements that are connected to a basic cut-set. Every cut-set divides the network into two
connected sub networks. Thus each element of the vector [Bt] i represents the algebraic sum
of the currents entering a sub network which must be zero by Kirchoff's law.
Hence, .. ... (3.30)
[Bt] j is a vector in which each element is the algebraic sum of the source currents of
the elements incident to the basic cut-set and represents the total source current in parallel with
a branch.
therefore,

IBR = [Bt][y]u

conjugate transpose of eqn. (3.3\) gives r t [B] • = I BR"t. Substituting this in the
previous eqn. (3.32)
(j)'t [B]*VBR = (f)t u
As [B] is a real matrix [B]* = [B]
Hence,
-
(i.e. )
\) = [B]V BR
Substituting eqs. (3.35) into (3.32)
IBR = [B]t[y][B]V BR
However, the branch voltages and currents are related by

It may be recognized that the diagonal terms in the admittance matrix at each of the
nodes are the sum of the admittances of the branches incident to the node. The off - diagonal
terms are the negative of these admittances branch - wise incident on the node. Thus, the
diagonal element is the negative sum of the off - diagonal elements. The matrix can be written

Introduction
In Chapter 4 methods for obtaining the various network matrices are presented. These methods
basically depend upon incidence matrices. A, B. C, K and B, C for singular and non-singular
transformation respectively. Thus, the procedure for obtaining Y or Z matrices in any frame of
reference requires matrix transformations involving inversions and multiplications. This could
be a very laborious and time consuming process for large systems involving hundreds of
nodes. It is possible to build the Z bus by using an algorithm where in systematically element by
element is considered for addition and build the complete network directly from the element
parameters. Such an algorithm would be very convenient for various manipulations that may
be needed while the system is in operation such as addition of lines, removal of lines and
change in parameters.
The basic equation that governs the performance of a network is
-
V BUS = rZBlJ<i 1.1 BIIS
4.1 Partial Network
In order to huild the network element hy element, a partial network is considered. At the
beginning to stal1 with, the building up of the network and its ZS\ IS or Y sus model a single
element I is considered. Further, this element having two terminals connected to tWll nodes
54 Power System Analysis
say (1) and (2) will have one of the terminals as reference or ground. Thus if node (1) is the
reference then the element will have its own self impedance as ZBUS. When we connect any
other element 2 to this element 1, then it may be either a branch or a link. The branch is
connected in series with the existing node either (1) or (2) giving rise to a third node (3).
On the contrary, a link is connected across the terminals (1) and (2) parallel to element I. This
is shown in (Fig. 4.1).

(a) Branch
Fig. 4.1
In this case no new bus is formed. The element I with nodes (1) and (2) is called the partial
network that is already existing before the branch or link 2 is connected to the element. We
shall use the notation (a) and (b) for the nodes of the element added either as a branch or as a
link. The terminals of the already existing network will be called (x) and (y). Thus, as element
by element is added to an existing network, the network already in existence is called the partial
network, to which, in step that follows a branch or a link is added. Thus generalizing the
process consider m buses or nodes already contained in the partial network in which (x) and
(y) are any buses (Fig. 4.2).

Consider the partial network shown in (Fig. 4.7)
Consider a link connected between a and b as shown.
The procedure for building up ZBUS for the addition of a branch is already developed.
Now, the same method will be used to develop an algorithm for the addition of a link. Consider
a fictitious node I between a and b. Imagine an voltage source VI in series with it between I
and b as shown in figure (4.6).
Voltage VI is such that the current through the link ab (ie) i

Thus we may consider that a branch a-I is added at the node (a) since the current
through the link is made zero by introducing a source voltage VI.

Removal of Elements or Changes in Element
Consider the removal of an element from a network. The modified impedance can be obtained
by adding in parallel with the element a link, whose impedance is equal to the negative of the
impedance to be removed.
In a similar manner, if the impedance of the element is changed, then the modified
impedance matrix obtained by adding a link in parallel with the element such that the equivalent
impedance of the two elements is the desired value.

of the modified impedance matrix [ Z I BUS ] .

voltage at bus i.
Consider an element p-q in the network. Let the element be coupled to another element
in the network r-s. If now the element p-q is removed from the network or its impedance is
changed then the changes in the bus currents can be represented by

5 POWER FLOW STUDIES
Power flow studies are performed to determine voltages, active and reactive power etc. at
various points in the network for different operating conditions subject to the constraints on
generator capacities and specified net interchange between operating systems and several other
restraints. Power flow or load flow solution is essential for continuous evaluation of the
performance of the power systems so that suitable control measures can be taken in case of
necessity. In practice it will be required to carry out numerous power flow solutions under a
variety of conditions.
5.1 Necessity for Power Flow Studies
Power flow studies are undertaken for various reasons, some of which are the following:
I. The line flows
2. The bus voltages and system voltage profile
3. The effect of change in configuration and incorporating new circuits on system
4. The effect of temporary loss of transmission capacity and (or) generation on system
6. Economic system operation
7. System loss minimization
8. Transformer tap setting for economic operation
9. Possible improvements to an existing system by change of conductor sizes and
system voltages.
Power Flow Studies
99
For the purpose of power flow studies a single phase representation of the power network
is used, since the system is generally balanced. When systems had not grown to the present
size, networks were simulated on network analyzers for load flow solutions. These analyzers
are of analogue type, scaled down miniature models of power systems with resistances,
reactances, capacitances, autotransformers, transformers, loads and generators. The generators
are just supply sources operating at a much higher frequency than 50 Hz to limit the size ofthe
components. The loads are represented by constant impedances. Meters are provided on the
panel board for measuring voltages, currents and powers. The power flow solution in obtained
directly from measurements for any system simulated on the analyzer.
With the advent of the modern digital computers possessing large storage and high
speed the mode of power flow studies have changed from analog to digital simulation. A large
number of algorithms are developed for digital power flow solutions. The methods basically
distinguish between themselves in the rate of convergence, storage requirement and time of
computation. The loads are gerally represented by constant power.
Network equations can be solved in a variety of ways in a systematic manner. The most
popular method is node voitage method. When nodal or bus admittances are used complex
linear algebraic simultaneous equations will be obtained in terms of nodal or bus currents.
However, as in a power system since the nodal currents are not known, but powers are known
at almost all the buses, the resulting mathematical equations become non-linear and are required
to be solved by interactive methods. Load flow studies are required as has been already explained
for power system planning, operation and control as well as for contingency analysis. The bus
admittance matrix is invariably utilized in power flow solutions
5.2 Conditions for Successful Operation of a Power System
There are the following:
1. There should the adequate real power generation to supply the power demand at
various load buses and also the losses
2. The bus voltage magnitUdes are maintained at values very close to the rated values.
3. Generators, transformers and transmission lines are not over loaded at any point of

5.4 Classification of Buses
(a) Load hus : A bus where there is only load connected and no generation exists is
called a load bus. At this bus real and reactive load demand P
d
and Q
d
are drawn
from the supply. The demand is generally estimated or predicted as in load forecast
or metered and measured from instruments. Quite often, the reactive power is
calculated from real power demand with an assumed power factor. A load bus is
called a p, Q bus. Since the load demands P
d
and Q
d
are known values at this
bus. The other two unknown quantities at a load bus are voltage magnitude and its
phase angle at the bus. In a power balance equation P d and Q
d
are treated as negative
quantities since generated powers P g and Q g are assumed positive.
(b) VoltaKe controlled bus or generator bus:
A voltage controlled bus is any bus in the system where the voltage magnitude can
be controlled. The real power developed by a synchronous generator can be varied
b: changing the prime mover input. This in turn changes the machine rotor axis
position with respect to a synchronously rotating or reference axis or a reference
bus. In other words, the phase angle of the rotor 0 is directly related to the real
power generated by the machine. The voltage magnitude on the other hand,
mainly, influenced by the excitation current in the field winding. Thus at a generator
bus the real power generation P" and the voltage magnitude IV 01 can be specified. It
is also possible to produce vars by using capacitor or reactor banks too. They
compensate the lagging or leading val's consumed and then contribute to voltage
control. At a generator bus or voltage controlled bus, also called a PV-bus the
reactive power Q
g
and 8fl are the values that are not known and are to be computed.
(c) ,",llIck htl.\'
In a network as power from the generators to loads through transmission
lines power loss occurs due to the losses in the line conductors. These losses when
included, we get the power balance relations
Pg-P
d
- ..... (5.14)
Qg-Qd-QI =0 ..... (5.15)
where P <; and Qo are the total real and reactive generations, P d and Q d are the total
real ancf reactive power demands and P land OI. are the power losses in the
transmission network. The values ofP g' 0 g' P d and 0 d are either known or estimated.
Since the flow of cements in the various lines in the transmission lines are not
known in advance, PI. and OI. remains unknown before the analysis of the network.
But. these losses have to be supplied by the generators in the system. For this
102

purpose, one of the geneFators or generating bus is specified as 'slack bus' or
'swing bus'. At this bus the generation P g and Q
g
are not specified. The voltage
magnitude is specified at this bus. Further, the voltage phase angle 8 is also fixed at
this bus. Generally it is specified as 0° so that all voltage phase angles are measured
with respect to voltage at this bus. For this reason slack bus is also known as
reference bus. All the system losses are supplied by the generation at this bus.
Further the system voltage profile is also influenced by the voltage specified at this
bus. The three types of buses are illustrated in Fig. 5.1.

The convergence of the iterative methods depends on the diagonal dominance of the
bus admittance matri\.. The self·admittances of the buses, are usually large, relative to the
mutual admittances and thus, usually convergence is obtained. Junctions of very high and low
series impedances and large capacitances obtained in cable circuits long, EHV lines, series and
shunt compensation are detrimental to convergence as these tend to weaken the diagonal
dominance in the V-matrix. The choice of slack bus can affect convergence considerably. [n
difficult cases. it is possible to obtain convergence by removing the least diagonally dominant
row and column of Y. The salient features of the V-matrix iterative methods are that the
elements in the summation tenm in cqn. (5.26) or (5.27) are on the average only three, even
for well-developed power systems. The sparsity of the V-matrix and its symmetry reduces
both the storage requirement and the computation time for iteration. For a large, well conditioned
system of n-buses, the number of iterations required are of the order of n and total computing
time varies approximately as n

.
Instead of using eqn (5.25). one can select the impedance matrix and rewrite the
equation a ~

The Z-matrix method is not usually very sensitive to the choice of the slack bus. It can
easily be verified that the Z-matrix is not sparse. For problems that can be solved by both
Z-matrix and V-matrix methods, the former are rarely competitive with the V-matrix methods.
5.7 Gauss-Seidel Iterative Method
Gauss-Seidel iterative method is very simple in concept but may not yield convagence to the
required solution. However, whcn the initial solution or starting point is very close to the actual
solution convergence is gcncrally ontained. The following example illustrator the method.
Consider the equations:
2x + 3y = 22
3\. +- 4y = 31
The free solution to thc above equations is .... == 5 and y = 4
106
Power System Analysis
If an interactive solution using Gauss-Seidel method is required then let u,; assume a
starting value for x = 4.8 which is nearer to the true value of 5 we obtain from the given
equations
22 - 2x 34 -4y
Y = --- and x = --3--
3
Iteration 1 : Let x = 4.8; y = 4.13
with y = 4.13; x = 6.2
Iteration 2 x = 6.2; y = 3.2
Y = 3.2; x = 6.06
Iteration 3 : x = 6.06 y = 3.29
y = 3.29 x = 5.94
Iteration 4 : x = 5.96 y = 3.37
Y = 3.37 x = 5.84
Iteration 5 : x = 5.84 Y = 3.44
Y = 3.44 x = 5.74
Iteration 6 : x = 5.74 Y = 3.5
Y = 3.5 x = 5.66
The iteractive solution slowly converges to the true solution. The convergence of the
method depending upon the starting values for the iterative solution.
In many cases the conveyence may not be ohtained at all. However, in case of power
flow studies, as the bus voltages are not very far from the rated values and as all load flow
studies are performed with per unit values assuming a flat voltage profile at all load buses of
(I + jO) p.LI. yields convergence in most of the cases with appriate accleration factors chosen.
5.8 Gauss - Seidel Iterative Method of Load Flow Solution
In this method, voltages at all buses except at the slack bus are assumed. The voltage at the
slack bus is specified and remains fixed at that value. The (n-I) bus voltage relations.

are solved simultaneously for an improved solution. In order to accelerate the convergence, all
newly-computed values of bus voltages are substituted in eqn. (5.35). Successively the bus
voltage equation of the (m + 1)th iteration may then be written as
V(m+l) = _I [p ,-jQ, _ y v:(m+l) _ y v:(m) l

The method converges slowly because of the loose mathematical coupling between the
buses. The rate of convergence of the process can be increased by using acceleration factors
to the solution obtained after each iteration. A fixed acceleration factor ex (I ::; ex ::; 2) is
normally used for each voltage change.

The above method of obtaining a converging solution for a set of nonlinear equations
can be used for solving the load flow problem. It may be mentioned that since the final voltage
solutions are not much different from the nominal values, Newton - Raphson method is
particularly suited to the load flow problem. The matrix J is highly sparse and is particularly
suited to the load flow application and sparsity - programmed ordered triangulation and back
substitution methods result in quick and efficient convergence to the load flow solution. This
method possesses quadratic convergence and thus converges very rapidly when the solution
point is close.
There are two methods of solution for the load flow using Newton - Raphson method.
The first method uses rectangular coordinates for the variables, while the second method uses
the polar coordinate formulation.

convergence. Iteration time can be saved by using the same triangulated Jacobian matrix for
two or more iterations. For typical, large size systems, the computing time for one Newton -
Raphson iteration is roughly equivalent to seven Gauss - Seidel iterations.
The rectangular formulation is marginally faster than the polar version because there are
no time consuming trigonometric functions. However, it is observed that the rectangular
coordinates method is less reliable than the polar version.
5.10 Sparsity of Network Admittance Matrices
For many power networks, the admittance matrix is relatively sparse, where as the impedance
matrix is full. In general, both matrices are nonsingular and symmetric. III the admittance
matrix. each non-zero off diagonal element corresponds to a network branch connecting the
pair of buses indicated by the row and column of the element. Most transmission networks
exhibit irregularity in their connection arrangements, and their admittance matrices are relatively
sparse. Such sparse systems possess the following advantages:
1. Their storage requirements are small, so that larger systems can be solved.
2. Direct solutions using triangularization techniques can be obtained much faster unless
the independent vector is extremely sparse.
3. Round off errors are very much reduced.
The exploitation of network sparsity requires sophisticated programming techniques.
116
Power System Analysis
5.11 Triangular Decompostion
Matrix inversion is a very inefficient process for computing direct solutions, especjally for
large, sparse systems. Triangular decomposition of the matrix for solution by Gussian
elimination is more suited for load flow solutions. Generally, the decomposition is accomplished
by elements below the main diagonal in successive columns. Elimination by successive rows is
more advantageous from computer programming point of view.
Consider the system of equations
Ax=b ..... (5.84)
where A is a nonsingular b is a known vector containing at least one non-zero element
and x is a column vector of unknowns.

5.12 Optimal Ordering
When the A matrix in eqn. (5.84) is sparse, it is necessary to see that the accumulation of
non- zero elements in the upper triangle is minimized. This can be achieved by suitably
ordering the equations, which is referred to as optimal ordering.
Consider the network system having five nodes as shown in Fig. 5.5.

..... (5.102)
Thus, comparing the matrices in eqn. (5.100) and (5.102) the non-zero off diagonal
entries are reduced from 6 to 3 by suitably numbering the nodes.
Tinney and Walker have suggested three methods for optimal ordering.
I. Number the rows according to the number of non-zero, off-diagonal elements before
elimination. Thus, rows with less number of off diagonal elements are numbered
first and the rows with large number last.
2. Number the rows so that at each s.tep of elimination the next row to be eliminated is
the one having fewest non-zero terms. This method required simulation of the
elimination process to take into account the changes in the non-zero connections
affected at each step.
3. Number the rows so that at each step of elimination, the next row to be eliminated is
the one that will introduce fewest new non-zero elements. This requires simulation
of every feasible alternative at each step.
Scheme I. is simple and fast. However, for power flow solutions, scheme 2. has proved to be
advantageous even with its additional computing time. If the number of iterations is large,
scheme 3. may prove to be advantageous.
5.13 Decoupled Methods
All power systems exhibit in the steady state a strong interdependence between active powers
and bus voltage angles and between reactiye power and voltage magnitude. The coupling
between real power and bus voltage magnitude and between reactive power and bus voltage

phase angle are both relatively weak. This weak coupling is utilized in the development of the
so called decoupled methods. Recalling equitation (5.79)
by neglecting Nand M sub matrices as a first step, decoupling can be obtained .so that
I f1P I = I HI· IMI
and
I f1Q I = I L I . I f1 I VI/I V I
..... (5.103)
..... (5.104)
The decoupled method converges as reliability as the original Newton method from
which it is derived. However, for very high accuracy the method requires more iterations
because overall quadratic convergence is lost. The decoupled Newton method saves by a
factor of four on the storage for the J - matrix and its triangulation. But, the overall saving is
35 to 50% of storage when compared to the original Newton method. The computation per
iteration is 10 to 20% less than for the original Newton method.

Matrices R' and B" represent constant approximations to the slopes of the tangent hyper
planes of the functions L1P / iVI and L1Q / IVi respectively. T h ~ y are very close to the Jacobian
sub matrices Hand L evaluated at system no-load.
Shunt reactances and off-nominal in-phase transformer taps which affect the Mvar
110ws are to be omitted from [B '] and for the same reason phase shifting elements are to be
omitted from [Bit].
Both l B '1 and [B It] are real and spars e and need be triangularised only once, at the
beginning of the study since they contain network admittances only.
The method converges very reliably in two to five iterations with fairly good accuracy
even for large systems. A good, approximate solution is obtained after the 1 SI or 2nd iteration,
The speed per iteration is roughly five times that of the original Newton method.

The numher of iterations required for convergence to solution depends considerably on the
correction to voltage at each bus. If the correction DY, at hus i is multiplied by a factor a, it is
found that acceleration can be obtained to convergence rate. Then multiplier a is called
acceleration factor. The difference between the newly computed voltage and the previous
voltage at the bus is multiplied by an appropriate acceleration factor. The value ofa that generally
improves the convergence is greater than are. In general I < a < 2 and a typical value for a =
1.5 or 1.6 the use of acceleration factor amounts to a linear extrapolation of bus voltage YI' For
a given system, it is quite often found that a near optimal choice of a exists as suggested in
literature over a range of operating condition complex value is also suggested for a. Same
suggested different a values for real and imaginary parts of the bus voltages.
Power Flow Analysis ]25
The convergence of iterative methods depends upon the diagonal dominance of the bus
admittance matrix. The self adm ittances of the buses (diagonal terms) are usually large relative
to the mutual admittances (off-diagonal terms). For this reason convergence is obtained for
power flow solution methods.
Junctions of high and low series impedances and large capacitances obtained in cable
circuits. long EHV lines. series and shunt. Compensation are detrimental to convergence as
these tend to weaken the diagonal dominance in Y bus matrix. The choice of swing bus may
also affect convergence considerably. In ditlicult cases it is possible to obtain convergence by
removing the least diagonally dominant row and column ofY-bus. The salient features ofY-bus
matrix iterative mf"thods are that the element in the summation term in equation ( ) or ( ) are on
the average 2 or 3 only even for well developed power systems. The sparsity of the Y-matrix
and its symmetry reduces both the storage requirement and the computation time for iteration.
For large well conditioned system of n huses the numher of iterations req uired are of the
order n and the total computing time varies approximately as n ~ .
In contrast, the Newton-Raphson method gives convergence in 3 to 4 iterations. No
acceleration factors are needed to the used. Being a gradient method solution is obtained must
taster than any iterative method.

6 SHORT CIRCUIT ANALYSIS
Electrical networks and machines are subject to various types of faults while in operation.
During the fault period, the current flowing is determined by the internal e.m.fs of the machines
in the network, and by the impedances of the network and machines. However, the impedances
of machines may change their values from those that exist immediately after the fault occurrence
to different values during the fault till the fault is cleared. The network impedance may also
change, if the fault is cleared by switching operations. It is, therefore, necessary to calculate
the short-circuit current at different instants when faults occur. For such fault analysis studies
and in general for power system analysis it is very convenient to use per unit system and
percentage values. In the following this system is explained.
6.1 Per Unit Quantities
The per unit value of any quantity is the ratio of the actual value in any units to the chosen base
quantify of the same dimensions expressed as a decimal.
Actual value in any units
Per unit quantity = ..
base or reference value In the same umts
In power systems the basic quantities of importance are voltage, current, impedance
and power. For all per unit calculations a base KVA or MVA and a base KV are to be chosen.
Once the base values or reference values are chosen. the other quantities can be ohtained as
follows:

In all the above relations the power factor is assumed unity, so that

Some times, it may be required to use the relation

Very often the values are in different base values. In order to convert the per unit

6.2 Advantages of Per Unit System
1. While performing calculations, referring quantities from one side of the transformer
to the other side serious errors may be committed. This can be avoided by using per
unit system.
2. Voltages, currents and impedances expressed in per unit do not change when they
are referred from one side of transformer to the other side. This is a great advantage'.
3. Per unit impedances of electrical equipment of similar type usually lie within a narrow
range, when the equipment ratings are used as base values.
4. Transformer connections do not affect the per unit values.
5. Manufacturers usually specify the impedances of machines and transformers in per
unit or percent of name plate ratings.
6.3 Three Phase Short Circuits
In the analysis of symmetrical three-phase short circuits the following assumptions are
1. Transformers are represented by their leakage reactances. The magnetizing current,
and core fusses are neglected. Resistances, shunt admittances are not considered.
Star-delta phase shifts are also neglected.
2. Transmission lines are represented by series reactances. Resistances and shunt
3. Synchronous machines are represented by constant voltage sources behind
subtransient reactances. Armature resistances, saliency and saturation are neglected.
4. All non-rotating impedance loads are neglected.
5. Induction motors are represented just as synchronous machines with constant voltage
source behind a reactance. Smaller motor loads are generally neglected.
Per unit impedances of transformers : Consider a single-phase transformer with primary and
secondary voltages and currents denoted by V I' V 2 and I I' 12 respectively.

179
Thus, the per unit impedance referred remains the same for a transformer on either
side.
6.4 Reactance Diagrams
[n power system analysis it is necessary to draw an equivalent circuit for the system. This is
an impedance diagrams. However, in several studies, including short-circuit analysis it is
sufficient to consider only reactances neglecting resistances. Hence, we draw reactance
diagrams. For 3-phase balanced systems, it is simpler to represent the system by a single line
diagram without losing the identify of the 3-phase system. Thus, single line reactance diagrams
can be drawn for calculation.
This is illustrated by the system shown in Fig. 6.1 (a) & (b) and by its single line
reactance diagram .

6.5 Percentage Values

The reactances of generators, transformers and reactors are generally expressed in percentage
values to permit quick short circuit calculation.
Percentage reactance is defined as :
[X
% X = -xIOO

where, I = full load current
V = phase voltage
X = reactance in ohms per phase

As has been stated already in short circuit analysis since the reactance X is generally
greater than three times the resistance, resistances are neglected.
But, in case percentage resistance and therefore, percentage impedance values are required
then, in a similar manner we can define
and

with usual notation.
The percentage values of Rand Z also do not change with the side of the transformer or
either side of the transformer they remain constant. The ohmic values of R, X and Z change
from one side to the other side of the transformer.
when a fault occurs the potential falls to a value determined by the fault impedance.
Short circuit current is expressed in term of short circuit KVA based on the normal system
voltage at the point of fault.
6.6 Short Circuit KVA
It is defined as the product of normal system voltage and short circuit current at the point of
fault expressed in KVA.
Short Circuit Analysis
Let V = normal phase voltage in volts
1= fall load current in amperes at base KVA
% X = percentage reactance of the system expressed on base KVA.

Therefore short circuit KVA = Base KVA x (%X)

In a power system or even in a single power station different equipment may have
different ratings. Calculation are required to be performed where different components or
units are rated differently. The percentage values specified on the name plates will be with
respect to their name plate ratings. Hence. it it necessary to select a common base KVA or MVA
and also a base KY. The following are some of the guide I ines for selection of base values.
1. Rating of the largest plant or unit for base MVA or KVA.
2. The total capacity ofa plant or system for base MVA or KVA.
3. Any arbitrary value.

Similarly the reactance values change with voltage base as per the relation
where X I = reactance at voltage V I
and X
2
= reactance at voltage V 2
For short circuit analysis, it is often convenient to draw the reactance diagrams
indicating the values in per unit.
182 Power System Analysis
6.7 Importance of Short Circuit Currents
Knowledge of short circuit current values is necessary for the following reasons.
1. Fault currents which are several times larger than the normal operating currents
produce large electro magnetic forces and torques which may adversely affect the
stator end windings. The forces on the end windings depend on both the d.c. and
a.c. components of stator currents.
2. The electro dynamic forces on the stator end windings may result in displacement of
the coils against one another. This may result in loosening of the support or damage
to the insulation of the windings.
3. Following a short circuit, it is always recommended that the mechanical bracing of
the end windings to checked for any possible loosening.
4. The electrical and mechanical forces that develop due to a sudden three phase short
circuit are generally severe when the machine is operating under loaded condition.
S. As the fault is cleared with in 3 cycles generally the heating efforts are not considerable.
Short circuits may occur in power systems due to system over voltages caused by
lightning or switching surges or due to equipment insulation failure or even due to insulator
contamination. Some times even mechanical causes may create short circuits. Other well
known reasons include line-to-line, line-to-ground, or line-to-line faults on over head lines. The
resultant short circuit has to the interrupted within few cycles by the circuit breaker.
It is absolutely necessary to select a circuit breaker that is capable of operating
successfully when maximum fault current flows at the circuit voltage that prevails at that
instant. An insight can be gained when we consider an R-L circuit connected to an alternating
voltage source, the circuit being switched on through a switch.

6.10 Effect of Load Current or Prefault Current
185
Consider a 3-phase synchronous generator supplying a balanced 3-phase load. Let a three
phase fault occur at the load terminals. Before the fault occurs, a load current IL is flowing into
the load from the generator. Let the voltage at the fault be v f and the terminal voltage of the
generator be Vt' Under fault conditions, the generator reactance is xd'
The circuit in Fig. 6.7 indicates the simulation of fault at the load terminals by a parallel
switch S.

course, a new E; is required to be computed.
6.11 Reactors
Whenever faults occur in power system large currents flow. Especially, if the fault is a dead
short circuit at the terminals or bus bars t?normous currents flow damaging the equipment and
its components. To limit the flow of large currents under there circumstances current limiting
reactors are used. These reactors are large coils covered for high self-inductance.
They are also so located that the effect of the fault does not affect other parts of the
system and is thus localized. From time to time new generating units are added to an existing
system to augment the capacity. When this happens, the fault current level increases and it
may become necessary to change the switch gear. With proper use of reactors addition of
generating units does not necessitate changes in existing switch gear.
6.12 Construction of Reactors
These reactors are built with non magnetic core so that saturation of core with consequent
reduction in inductance and increased short circuit currents is avoided. Alternatively, it is
possible to use iron core with air-gaps included in the magnetic core so that saturation is avoided.
6.13 Classification of Reactors
(i) Generator reactors, (ii) Feeder reactors, (iii) Bus-bar reactors
Short Circuit Analysis 187
The above classification is based on the location ofthe reactors. Reactors may be connected in
series with the generator in series with each feeder or to the bus bars.
(i) Generator reactors
The reactors are located in series with each of the generators as shown in
Fig. 6.8 so that current flowing into a fault F from the generator is limited.
Generators
Bus
Bars
Fig. 6.8
(a) In the event of a fault occuring on a feeder, the voltage at the remaining
healthy feeders also may loose synchronism requiring resynchronization later.
(b) There is a constant voltage drop in the reactors and also power loss, even
during normal operation. Since modern generators are designed to with stand
dead short circuit at their terminals, generator reactors are now-a-days not
used except for old units in operation.
(ii) Feeder reactors: In this method of protection each is equipped with a
series reactor as shown in Fig. 6.9.
In the event of a fault on any feeder the fault current drawn is restricted by the
reactor.

Power System Analysis
Disadvantages: I. Voltage drop and power loss still occurs in the reactor for a
feeder fault. However, the voltage drop occurs only in that particular feeder reactor.
2. Feeder reactors do not offer any protection for bus bar faults. Neverthless,
bus-bar faults occur very rarely.
As series reactors inhererbly create voltage drop, system voltage regulation will
be impaired. Hence they are to be used only in special case such as for short
feeders of large cross-section.
(iii) Bus bar reactors: In both the above methods, the reactors carry full load current
under normal operation. The consequent disadvantage of constant voltage drops
and power loss can be avoided by dividing the bus bars into sections and inter
connect the sections through protective reactors. There are two ways of doing
this.
(a) Ring system :
In this method each feeder is fed by one generator. Very little power flows
across the reactors during normal operation. Hence, the voltage drop and
power loss are negligible. If a fault occurs on any feeder, only the generator
to which the feeder is connected will feed the fault and o ~ h e r generators are
required to feed the fault through the reactor.
(b) Tie-bar system: This is an improvement over the ring system. This is shown
in Fig. 6.11. Current fed into a fault has to pass through two reactors in
series between sections.

7 UNBALANCED FAULT ANALYSIS
Three phase systems are accepted as the standard system for generation, transmission and
utilization of the bulk of electric power generated world over. The above holds good even
when some of the transmission lines are replaced by d-c links. When the three phase system
becomes unbalanced while in operation, analysis becomes difficult. Dr. c.L. Fortesque proposed
in 1918 at a meeting of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers through a paper titled
"Method of Symmetrical Coordinates applied to the solution of polyphase Networks", a very
useful method for analyzing unbalanced 3-phase networks.
Faults of various types such as line-to-ground, line-to-line, three-phase short
circuits with different fault impedances etc create unbalances. Breaking down of line conductors
is also another source for unbalances in Power Systems Operation. The symmetrical
Coordinates proposed by Fortesque are known more commonly as symmetrical components
or sequence components.
An unbalanced system ofn phasors can be resolved into n systems of balanced phasors.
These subsystems of balanced phasors are called symmetrical components. With reference to
3-phase systems the following balanced set of three components are identified and defined.
(a) Set of three phasors equal in magnitude, displaced from each other by 120
0
in phase
and having the same phase sequence as the original phasors constitute positive
sequence components. They are denoted by the suffix I.
218 Power System Analysis
(b) Set of three phasors equal in magnitude, displaced from each other by 120
0
in phase,
and having a phase sequence opposite to that of the original phasors constitute the
negative sequence components. They are denoted by the suffix 2.
(c) Set of three phasors equal in magnitude and alI in phase (with no mutual phase
displacement) constitute zero sequence components. They are denoted by the suffix
o. Denoting the phases as R, Y and B V R' V Y and VB are the unbalanced phase
voltages. These voltages are expressed in terms of the sequence V Ri'

7.5 Sequence Impedances
Electrical equipment or components offer impedance to flow of current when potential is
applied. The impedance offered to the flow of positive sequence currents is called "positive
sequence impedance ZI' The impedance offered to the flow of negative sequence currents is
called negative sequence impedance Z2' When zero sequence currents flow through components
of power system the impedance offered is called zero sequence impedance ZOo

From the above, it can be concluded that for a balanced load the three sequences are
indepedent, which means that currents of one sequence flowing will produce voltage drops of
the same phase sequence only.

7.7 Transmission Lines
Transmission lines are static components in a power system. Phase sequence has thus, no
effect on the impedance. The geometry of the lines is fixed whatever may be the phase sequence.

The zero sequence currents are in phase and flow through the line conductors only if a
return conductor is provided. The zero sequence impedance is different from positive and
negative sequence impedances.
Unbalanced Fault Analysis 227
7.8 Sequence Impedances of Transformer
For analysis, the magnetizing branch is neglected and the transformer is represented by an
equivalent series leakage impedance.
Since, the transformer is a static device, phase sequence has no effect on the winding
reactances.
Hence
where Z, is the leakage impedance
If zero sequence currents flow then
Zo = ZI = Z2 '= Z,
In star-delta or delta-star transformers the positive sequence line voltage on one side
leads the corresponding line voltage on the other side by 30°. It can be proved that the phase
shift for the line voltages to be -30° for negative sequence voltages.
The zero sequence impedance and the equivalent circuit for zero sequence currents
depends upon the neutral point and its ground connection. The circuit connection for some of
the common transformer connection for zero sequence currents are indicated in Fig. 7.5.

7.9 Sequence Reactances of Synchronous Machine
The positive sequence reactance of a synchronous machine may be Xd or X
d
' or Xd"
depending upon the condition at which the reactance is calculated with positive sequence
voltages applied.
When negative sequence cements are impressed on the stator winding, the net flux
rotates at twice the synchronous speed relative to the rotor. The negative sequence reactance
is approximately given by
X
2
= Xd" ..... (7.52)
The zero sequence currents, when they flow, are identical and the spatial distribution of
the mmfs is sinusoidal. The resultant air gap flux due to zero sequence currents is zero. Thus,
the zero sequence reactance is approximately, the same as the leakage flux
Xo=X, ..... (7.53)
7.10 Sequence Networks of Synchronous Machines
Consider an unloaded synchronous generator shown in Fig. 7.6 with a neutral to ground
connection through an impedance Zn' Let a fault occur at its terminals which causes currents'
la' Ib and Ic to flow through its phass a, b, and c respectively. The generated phase voltages are
E
a
, Eb and Ec' Current In flows through the neutral impedance Zn'
~ I a
Fig. 7.6
7.10.1 Positive Sequence Network
Since the generator phase windings are identical by design and oonstruction the generated
voltages are perfectly balanced. They are equal in magnitude with a mutual phase shift of 120°.
Hence, the generated voltages are of positive sequence. Under these conditions a positive
sequence current flows in the generator that can be represented as in Fig. 7.7.
Unbalanced Fault Analysis 229
Fig. 7.7
ZI is the positive sequence impedance of the machine and la' is the positive sequence
current in phase a. The positive sequence network can be represented for phase 'a' as shown

7.10.2 Negative Sequence Network
..... (7.54 )
Synchronous generator does not produce any nagative sequence voltages. If negative sequences
currents flow through the stator windings then the mmf produced will rotate at synchronous
speed but in a direction opposite to the rotation of the machine rotor. This causes the negative
sequence mmf to move past the direct and quadrature axes alternately. Then, the negative
sequence mmf sets up a varying armature reaction effect. Hence, the negative sequence reactance
is taken as the average of direct axis and quadrature axis subtransient reactances.

7.10.3 Zero Sequence Network
Zero sequence currents flowing in the stator windings produce mmfs which are in time phase.
Sinusoidal space mmf produced by each of the three stator windings at any instant at a point
on the axis of the stator would be zero, when the rotor is not present. However, in the actual
machine leakage flux will contribute to zero sequence impedance. Consider the circuit in
Fig. 7.10 (a).

Since laO = lbo = leO
The current flowing through Zn is 3 laO.

7.11 Unsymmetrical Faults
The unsymmetrical faults generally considered are
• Line to ground fault
• Line to line fault
• Line to line to ground fault
Single line to ground fault is the most common type of fault that occurs in practice.
Analysis for system voltages and calculation of fault current under the above conditions of
operation is discussded now.
232 Power System Analysis
7.12 Assumptions for System Representation
I. Power system operates under balanced steady state conditions before the fault occurs.
Therefore, the positive, negative and zero seq. networks are uncoupled before the
occurrence of the fault. When an unsymmetrical fault occurs they get interconnected
at the point of fault.
2. Prefault load current at the point of fault is generally neglected. Positive sequence
voltages of all the three phases are equal tothe prefault voltage V F' Prefault bus
voltage in the positive sequence network is V F'
3. Tranformer winding resistances and shunt admittances are neglected.
4. Transmission line series resistances and shunt admittances are neglected.
5. Synchronous machine armature resistance, saliency and saturation are neglected.
6. All non-rotating impedance loads are neglected.
7. Induction motors are either neglected or represented as synchronous machines.
It is conceptually easier to understand faults at the terminals of an unloaded synchronous
genrator and obtain results. The same can be extended to a power system and results obtained
for faults occurring at any point within the system.
7.13 Unsymmetrical Faults on an Unloaded Generator

8 POWER SYSTEM STABILITY
8.1 Elementary Concepts
Maintaining synchronism between the various elements of a power system has become an
important task in power system operation as systems expanded with increasing inter connection
of generating stations and load centres. The electromechanical dynamic behaviour of the prime
mover-generator-excitation systems, various types of motors and other types of loads with
widely varying dynamic characteristics can be analyzed through some what oversimplified
methods for understanding the processes involved. There are three modes of behaviour generally
identified for the power system under dynamic condition. They are
(b) Transient stability
(c) Dynamic stability
Stability is the ability of a dynamic system to remain in the same operating state even
after a disturbance that occurs in the system.
Stability when used with reference to a power system is that attribute of the system or
part of the system, which enables it to develop restoring forces between the elements thereof,
equal to or greater than the disturbing force so as to restore a state of equilibrium between the
elements.
260 Power System Analysis
A power system is said to be steady state stable for a specific steady state operating
condition, if it returns to the same state operating condition following a disturbance.
Such disturbances are generally small in nature.
A stability limit is the maximum power flow possible through some particular point in
the system, when the entire system or part of the system to which the stability limit refers is
operating with stability.
Larger disturbances may change the operating state significantly, but still into an acceptable
steady state. Such a state is called a transient state.
The third aspect of stability viz. Dynamic stability is generally associated with excitation
system response and supplementary control signals involving excitation system. This will be
dealt with later.
Instability refers to a conditions involving loss of 'synchronism' which in also the same
as 'falling out o'fthe step' with respect to the rest of the system.
8.2 Illustration of Steady State Stability Concept
Consider the synchronous generator-motor system shown in Fig. 8.1. The generator and
motor have reactances Xg and Xm respectively. They connected through a line of reactance

The graph of P versus 0 is called power angle curve and is shown in Fig. 8.2. The
system will be stable so long dP is positive. Theoretically, if the load power is increased in
do
very small increments from 0 = 0 to 0 = rr./2, the system will be stable. At 8 = rr./2. The steady
state stability limit will be reached.,p max is dependent on E
g
, Em and X. Thus, we obtain the
following possibilities for increasing the value of Pmax indicated in the next section.
Fig. 8.2
8.3 Methods for Improcessing Steady State Stability Limit
1. Use of higher excitation voltages, thereby increasing the value of Eg.
2. Reducing the reactance between the generator and the motor. The reactance X = Xg
+ Xm + Xe is called the transfer reactance between the two machines and this has to
be brought do\\-n to the possible extent.

8.5 Transient Stability
..... (8.3)
Steady state stability studies often involve a single machine or the equivalent to a few machines
connected to an infinite bus. Undergoing small disturbances. The study includes the behaviour
of the machine under small incremental changes in operating conditions about an operating
point on small variation in parameters.
When the disturbances are relatively larger or faults occur on the system, the system
enters transient state. Transient stability of the system involves non-linear models. Transient
internal voltage E; and transient reactances X ~ are used in calculations.
The first swing of the machine (or machines) that occur in a shorter time generally does
not include the effect off excitation system and load-frequency control system. The first
swing transient stability is a simple study involving a time space not exceeding one second.
If the machine remains stable in the first second, it is presumed that it is transient stable for
that disturbances. However, where disturbances are larger and require study over a longer
period beyond one second, multiswong studies are performed taking into effect the excitation
and turbine-generator controls. The inclusion of any control system or supplementary control
depends upon the nature of the disturbances and the objective of the study.
8.6 Stability of a Single Machine Connected to Infinite Bus
Consider a synchronous motor connected to an infinite bus. Initially the motor is supplying a
mechanical load P rno while operating at a power angle 0
0
, The speed is the synchronous speed
())s' Neglecting losses power in put is equal to the mechanical load supplied. If the load on the
motor is suddenly increased to PmI' this sudden load demand will be met by the motor by
giving up its stored kinetic energy and the motor, therefore, slows down. The torque angle 0
increases from 0
0
to 0
1
when the electrical power supplied equals the mechanical power
demand at b as shown in Fig. 8.3. Since, the motor is decelerating, the speed, however, is

less than Ns at b. Hence, the torque 'angle ()' increases further to ()2 where the electrical power
P
e
is greater than P
ml
, but N = Ns at point c. At this point c further increase of () is arrested as
P e > P ml and N = Ns. The torque angle starts decreasing till °

fact that till point b is reached P
e
is still greater than Pm!' speed is more than N

decreases further till point a is reacted where N = Ns but P

• The cycle of oscillation
continues. But, due to the damping in the system that includes friction and losses, the rotor is
brought to the new operating point b with speed N = N

In Fig. 8.3 area 'abd' represents deceleration and area bce acceleration. The motor will
reach the stable operating point b only if the accelerating energy AI represented by bce equals
the decelerating energy A2 represented by area abd.

The moment of inertia I may be expressed in louie - (Sec)2/(rad)2 since m is in rad/sec.
The stored energy of an electrical machine is more usually expressed in mega joules and angles
in degrees. Angular momentum M is thus described by mega joule - sec. per electrical degree

operating characteristic changes from pre-fault to during the fault. If the faulted line is removed
then power transfer will be again shifted to post-fault characteristic where line I only is in
operation. Subsequently, if the fault is cleared and line 2 is reclosed, the operation once again
shifts back to pre-fault characteristic and normalcy will be restored. For stable operation area

8.15 Solution to Swing Equation Step-by-Step Method
Solution to swing equation gives the change in 5 with time. Uninhibited increase in the value of
5 will cause instability. Hence, it is desired to solve the swing equation to see that the value of
5 starts decreasing after an initial period of increase, so that at some later point in time, the
machine reaches the stable state. Gnerally 8, 5, 3 or 2 cycles are the times suggested for circuit
breaker interruption after the fault occurs. A variety of numerical step-by-step methods are
available for solution to swing equation. The plot of 5 versus t in seconds is called the swing
curve. The step-by-step method suggested here is suitable for hand calculation for a single
machine connected to system.

Thus, the plot of 8 with time increasing after a transient disturbance has occured or
fault takes place can be plotted as shown in Fig. 8.16 (c).
8.16 Factors Affecting Transient Stability
Transient stability is very much affected by the type of the fault. A three phase dead short
circuit is the most severe fault; the fault severity decreasing with two phase fault and single
line-to ground fault in that order.
If the fault is farther from the generator the severity will be less than in the case of a
fault occurring at the terminals of the generator.
Power transferred during fault also plays a major role. When, part of the power generated
is transferred to the load, the accelerating power is reduced to that extent. This can easily be
understood from the curves of Fig. 8.16.
280 Power System Analysis
Theoretically an increase in the value of inertia constant M reduces the angle through
which the rotor swings farther during a fault. However, this is not a practical proposition
since, increasing M means, increasing the dimensions of the machine, which is uneconomical.
The dimensions of the machine are determined by the output desired from the machine and
stability cannot be the criterion. Also, increasing' M may interfere with speed governing system.
Thus looking at the swing equations
M d 22

= P _ P = P _ EV Sino
dt m e m X

the possible methods that may improve the transient stability are:
(i) Increase of system voltages, and use of automatic voltage regulators.
(ii) Use of quick response excitation systems
(iii) Compensation for transfer reactance X
I2
so that P
e
increases and Pm - P
e

reduces.
(iv) Use of high speed circuit breakers which reduce the fault duration time and
hence the acclerating power.
When faults occur, the system voltage drops. Support to the system voltages by automatic
voltage controllers and fast acting excitation systems will improve the power transfer during
the fault and reduce the rotor swing.
Reduction in transfer reactance is possible only when parallel lines are used in place of
single line or by use of bundle conductors. Other theoretical methods such as reducing the
spacing between the conductors-and increasing the size of the conductors dre not practicable
and are uneconomical.
Quick opening of circuit breakers and single pole reclosing is helpful. Since majority of
the faults are faults selective single pole opening and reclosing will ensure transfer
of power during the fault and improve stability.
8.17 Dynamic Stability
Consider a synchronous machine with terminal voltage V

• The voltage due to excitation acting
along the quadrature axis is Eq and is the voltage along this axis. The direct axis rotor angle
with respect to a synchronously revolving axis is d. If a load change occurs and the field
current If is not changed then the various quantities mentioned change with the real power

It can be concluded from the above, that excitation control has a great role to play in
power system stability and the speed with which this control is achieved is very important in
this context.
E.V
Note that Pm ax = X
and increase of E matters in increasing P max'
In Russia and other countries, control signals utilizing the derivatives of output current
and terminal voltage deviation have been used for controlling the voltage in addition to propostional
control signals. Such a situation is termed 'forced excitation' or 'forced field control'. Not only
the first derivatives of L'11 and L'1 Yare used, but also higher derivatives have been used for
There controller have not much control on the first swing stability, but have effect on
the operation subsequent swings.
This way of system control for satisfactory operation under changing load conditions
using excitation control comes under the purview of dynamci stability.
Power System Stabilizer
An voltage, regulator in the forward path of the exciter-generator system will introduce a
damping torque and under heavy load contions'this damping torque may become ndegative.
This is a situation where dynamic in stability may occur and casue concern. It is also observed
that the several time constants in the forward path of excitation control loop introduce large
phase lag at low frequencies just baoe the natural frequency of the excitation system.
To overcome there effects and toi improve the damping, compensating networks are
introduced to produce torque in phase with the speed.
Such a network is called "Power System Stabilizer" (PSS).
8.18 Node Elimination Methods

considered. Hence, load buses are eliminated. As an example consider the system shown in

1 INTRODUCTION Power is an essential pre-requisite for the progress of any country. It is the largest man made system in existence and is the most complex system. For the analysis of a power system in operation . Power system analysis is the subject in the branch of electrical power engineering which deals with the determination of voltages at various buses and the currents that flow in the transmission lines operating at different voltage levels.1 The Electrical Power System The electrical power system is a complex network consisting of generators. The inter connection of the various generating stations to load centers through EHV and UHV transmission lines necessitated analytical methods for analysing various situations that arise in operation and control of the system. buses. The power demand is more than doubling every decade. 1. power generation originally confined to steam engines expanded using (steam turbines) hydro electric turbines. Since then. circuit breakers etc. the solution of which requires extensive application of mathematical methods from various branches. operation and control of interconnected power system poses a variety of challenging problems. The modern power system has features unique to it self. loads. transmission lines. Thomas Alva Edison was the first to conceive an electric power station and operate it in Newyork in 1882. Planning. transformers. nuclear reactors and others.

For transient stability studies involving sudden changes in load or circuit condition due to faults. For study of fault currents the equivalent circuit in Fig. transfer functions etc.2 can be reduced to Fig. Newton-Raphson method is the most commonly used mathematical technique. Accordingly it may be algebraic equations. differential equations describing energy balance over a few half-cycles of time period are required.1 Generators Sending end Transformer Transmission Lines Receiving end transformer Load Fig. This period could be 15 to 30 minutes.2 . 1. 1.>----+-+ Loads Sending end step up transformer Generators Receiving end step-down transformer Fig. Transmission Line .2. 1. 1. For studying the steady state performance a number of matrix models are needed. Consider the power System shown in Fig. The equivalent circuit for the power system can be represented as in Fig. In this state power flow equations are non-linear due to the presence of product terms of variables and trigonometric terms.3 upto the load terminals neglecting the shunt capacitances of the transmission line and magnetizing reactances of the transformers. it is possible to conceive a quasistatic state during which period the loads could be considered constant. wherein speed or frequency and voltage control may be required to maintain the standard values. However.. The analysis of the system for small load variations. differential equations. The solution techniques involves numerical (iterative) methods for solving non-linear algebraic equations.2 Power System Analysis a suitable model is needed.. 1. The power system is never in steady state as the loads keep changing continuously. derivative and integral controllers or optimal controllers using Kalman's feed back coefficients. 1.

The control of a turbo generator set to suit to the varying load requirement requires a model. graph theory and incidence matrices will be quite convenient. This requires modeling of speed governor. Also. it is required to develop both Z-bus and V-bus models for the network. Under balanced operation. Either or e= Z. lighting loads. the machine reactances may change and assume different values fot different situations. For small variations. It may be noted that unbalanced transmission line configuration is balanced in operation by transposition. balancing the electrical characteristics.3 While the reactances of transformers and lines which are static do not change under varying conditions of operation..former Fig.i i =Y. 1. 1. all the three-phase voltages are equal in magnitude and displaced from each other mutually by 120 0 (elec.

Network solutions can be carried out using Ohm's law and Kirchoff's laws.2 Network Models Electrical power network consists of large number of transmission lines interconnected in a fashion that is dictated by the development of load centers. composite loads containing 3-phase motors. Thus.). rectifiers. Quality is defined in terms of voltage and frequency. To build such a model. d-c motors. may have very different models depending upon the composition of its constituents. turbo generator and power system itself as all these constitute the components of a feedback loop for control.Introduction 3 TransmIssIon Lines Tran. heaters. This interconnected network configuration expands continuously. A systematic procedure is needed to build a model that can be constantly up-graded with increasing interconnections.3 Faults and Analysis Study of the network performance under fault conditions requires analysis of a generally balanced network as an unbalanced network. The ultimate objective of power system control is to maintain continuous supply of power with acceptable quality. Such a model can be obtained using transfer function concept and control can be achieved through classical or modern control theory. e model can be used for steady state network solution.

Further. the procedure for obtaining Y or Z matrices in any frame of reference requires matrix transformations involving inversions and multiplications. This could be a very laborious and time consuming process for large systems involving hundreds of nodes. C. Thus. At the beginning to stal1 with. a partial network is considered. The basic equation that governs the performance of a network is V BUS = rZBlJ<i - 1. A. It is possible to build the Z bus by using an algorithm where in systematically element by element is considered for addition and build the complete network directly from the element parameters. the building up of the network and its ZS\ IS or Y sus model a single element I is considered.1 BIIS 4. Such an algorithm would be very convenient for various manipulations that may be needed while the system is in operation such as addition of lines. removal of lines and change in parameters. These methods basically depend upon incidence matrices. B.

Building of Network Matrices
Consider the partial network shown in (Fig. 4.7) Consider a link connected between a and b as shown.

The procedure for building up ZBUS for the addition of a branch is already developed. Now, the same method will be used to develop an algorithm for the addition of a link. Consider a fictitious node I between a and b. Imagine an voltage source VI in series with it between I and b as shown in figure (4.6). Voltage VI is such that the current through the link ab (ie) iah = 0 eab = voltage across the link a-b VI = source voltage across I-b = elb Thus we may consider that a branch a-I is added at the node (a) since the current through the link is made zero by introducing a source voltage VI.

Being a gradient method solution is obtained must taster than any iterative method.Power Flow Analysis ]25 The convergence of iterative methods depends upon the diagonal dominance of the bus admittance matrix. In contrast. In ditlicult cases it is possible to obtain convergence by removing the least diagonally dominant row and column ofY-bus. long EHV lines. the Newton-Raphson method gives convergence in 3 to 4 iterations. The choice of swing bus may also affect convergence considerably. The self adm ittances of the buses (diagonal terms) are usually large relative to the mutual admittances (off-diagonal terms). For large well conditioned system of n huses the numher of iterations req uired are of the order n and the total computing time varies approximately as n~. Compensation are detrimental to convergence as these tend to weaken the diagonal dominance in Y bus matrix.

Per unit impedances of electrical equipment of similar type usually lie within a narrow range. we have. Manufacturers usually specify the impedances of machines and transformers in per unit or percent of name plate ratings. Resistances and shunt admittances are neglected. Transformer connections do not affect the per unit values. Synchronous machines are represented by constant voltage sources behind subtransient reactances. 2. Smaller motor loads are generally neglected. Resistances.

Short circuits may occur in power systems due to system over voltages caused by lightning or switching surges or due to equipment insulation failure or even due to insulator contamination. Following a short circuit.182 Power System Analysis 6.8 Analysis ofR-L Circuit Consider the circuit in the Fig.2 Let e = Emax Sin (rot + a) when the switch S is closed at t = 0+ di e = Emax Sin (rot + a) = R + L dt . the circuit being switched on through a switch. It is absolutely necessary to select a circuit breaker that is capable of operating successfully when maximum fault current flows at the circuit voltage that prevails at that instant.2. An insight can be gained when we consider an R-L circuit connected to an alternating voltage source. 3. Fault currents which are several times larger than the normal operating currents produce large electro magnetic forces and torques which may adversely affect the stator end windings. Knowledge of short circuit current values is necessary for the following reasons. The electrical and mechanical forces that develop due to a sudden three phase short circuit are generally severe when the machine is operating under loaded condition. 2. The electro dynamic forces on the stator end windings may result in displacement of the coils against one another. 4. line-to-ground.

Otherwise Eg• the steady state voltage in series with the direct axis synchronous reactance is to be used for all calculations. With proper use of reactors addition of generating units does not necessitate changes in existing switch gear. and depends only on the field current. These reactors are large coils covered for high self-inductance. From time to time new generating units are added to an existing system to augment the capacity. 6. 6. They are also so located that the effect of the fault does not affect other parts of the system and is thus localized. of course.

In the event of a fault on any feeder the fault current drawn is restricted by the reactor. Reactors may be connected in series with the generator in series with each feeder or to the bus bars. 6.9. generator reactors are now-a-days not used except for old units in operation. the voltage at the remaining healthy feeders also may loose synchronism requiring resynchronization later. even during normal operation.9 . 6. 6.Short Circuit Analysis 187 The above classification is based on the location ofthe reactors.

Current fed into a fault has to pass through two reactors in series between sections. The consequent disadvantage of constant voltage drops and power loss can be avoided by dividing the bus bars into sections and inter connect the sections through protective reactors.10 Fig. As series reactors inhererbly create voltage drop. Very little power flows across the reactors during normal operation. Hence.11 Another advantage is that additional generation may be connected to the system without requiring changes in the existing reactors. bus-bar faults occur very rarely. This is shown in Fig. the voltage drop occurs only in that particular feeder reactor. (a) Ring system : In this method each feeder is fed by one generator. (b) Tie-bar system: This is an improvement over the ring system. There are two ways of doing this. the tie-bar. the reactors carry full load current under normal operation. 2. Bus bar reactors: In both the above methods. . Generators (iii) BVS Bars F F F BVS bar Tie bar F2 Peeders Fig. 6. Voltage drop and power loss still occurs in the reactor for a feeder fault. Hence they are to be used only in special case such as for short feeders of large cross-section. Feeder reactors do not offer any protection for bus bar faults.188 Power System Analysis Disadvantages: I. Neverthless.11. 6. If a fault occurs on any feeder. However. The only disadvantage is that this systems requires an additional bus-bar system. only the generator to which the feeder is connected will feed the fault and o~her generators are required to feed the fault through the reactor. the voltage drop and power loss are negligible. 6. system voltage regulation will be impaired.

Fortesque proposed in 1918 at a meeting of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers through a paper titled "Method of Symmetrical Coordinates applied to the solution of polyphase Networks". Faults of various types such as line-to-ground. An unbalanced system ofn phasors can be resolved into n systems of balanced phasors. These subsystems of balanced phasors are called symmetrical components. When the three phase system becomes unbalanced while in operation. . line-to-line. The symmetrical Coordinates proposed by Fortesque are known more commonly as symmetrical components or sequence components. With reference to 3-phase systems the following balanced set of three components are identified and defined. They are denoted by the suffix I. Breaking down of line conductors is also another source for unbalances in Power Systems Operation. a very useful method for analyzing unbalanced 3-phase networks. displaced from each other by 1200 in phase and having the same phase sequence as the original phasors constitute positive sequence components.

Stability when used with reference to a power system is that attribute of the system or part of the system. The electromechanical dynamic behaviour of the prime mover-generator-excitation systems. equal to or greater than the disturbing force so as to restore a state of equilibrium between the elements. various types of motors and other types of loads with widely varying dynamic characteristics can be analyzed through some what oversimplified methods for understanding the processes involved. .1 POWER SYSTEM STABILITY Elementary Concepts Maintaining synchronism between the various elements of a power system has become an important task in power system operation as systems expanded with increasing inter connection of generating stations and load centres. which enables it to develop restoring forces between the elements thereof.8 8. There are three modes of behaviour generally identified for the power system under dynamic condition. They are (a) Steady state stability (b) Transient stability (c) Dynamic stability Stability is the ability of a dynamic system to remain in the same operating state even after a disturbance that occurs in the system.

8. Instability refers to a conditions involving loss of 'synchronism' which in also the same as 'falling out o'fthe step' with respect to the rest of the system. 8. when the entire system or part of the system to which the stability limit refers is operating with stability.1 From the Fig. Xe Fig. 8. They ~re connected through a line of reactance Xe' The various voltages are indicated. A stability limit is the maximum power flow possible through some particular point in the system. The generator and motor have reactances Xg and Xm respectively. The third aspect of stability viz. Larger disturbances may change the operating state significantly. 8. if it returns to the same st~ady state operating condition following a disturbance. Dynamic stability is generally associated with excitation system response and supplementary control signals involving excitation system.1.260 Power System Analysis A power system is said to be steady state stable for a specific steady state operating condition. Such disturbances are generally small in nature. Such a state is called a transient state. but still into an acceptable steady state.2 Illustration of Steady State Stability Concept Consider the synchronous generator-motor system shown in Fig.x where X = Xg e m +X +X J Power del ivered to motor by the generator is P = Re [E J*] .1 E=E m +J·xJ·' g 1= Eg -Em .

The speed is the synchronous speed ())s' Neglecting losses power in put is equal to the mechanical load supplied. the synchronizing coefficient must be positive. If the load on the motor is suddenly increased to PmI' this sudden load demand will be met by the motor by giving up its stored kinetic energy and the motor. The inclusion of any control system or supplementary control depends upon the nature of the disturbances and the objective of the study. Undergoing small disturbances. slows down.6 Stability of a Single Machine Connected to Infinite Bus Consider a synchronous motor connected to an infinite bus. The first swing of the machine (or machines) that occur in a shorter time generally does not include the effect off excitation system and load-frequency control system. Initially the motor is supplying a mechanical load Prno while operating at a power angle 00. However. Transient stability of the system involves non-linear models. however. 8. If the machine remains stable in the first second... multiswong studies are performed taking into effect the excitation and turbine-generator controls. therefore. (8. When the disturbances are relatively larger or faults occur on the system. 8. Since. and transient reactances X~ are used in calculations. where disturbances are larger and require study over a longer period beyond one second. it is presumed that it is transient stable for that disturbances.

The study includes the behaviour of the machine under small incremental changes in operating conditions about an operating point on small variation in parameters. The torque angle 0 increases from 00 to 0 1 when the electrical power supplied equals the mechanical power demand at b as shown in Fig. the system enters transient state.3) is called Synchronizing power coefficient or stiffness. The first swing transient stability is a simple study involving a time space not exceeding one second.4 Synchronizing Power Coefficient We have The quantity .5 Transient Stability Steady state stability studies often involve a single machine or the equivalent to a few machines connected to an infinite bus.262 Power System Analysis 8.

The torque angle starts decreasing till 1 is reached at b but due to the fact that till point b is reached Pe is still greater than Pm!' speed is more than N s . (8. This is usually called swing equation. At this point c further increase of () is arrested as Pe > Pml and N = Ns.. but N = Ns at point c. The motor will reach the stable operating point b only if the accelerating energy AI represented by bce equals the decelerating energy A2 represented by area abd. the torque 'angle ()' increases further to ()2 where the electrical power Pe is greater than Pml .
