## Lecture 2 – Basic Concepts

Per-Unit System
In the per-unit system, the voltages, currents,
powers, impedances, and other electrical
quantities are expressed on a per-unit basis by
the equation:

Actual value
Quantity per unit =
Base value of quantity

## It is customary to select two base quantities to

define a given per-unit system. The ones usually
selected are voltage and power.

Vb  Vrated

impedances:

An electrical lamp is rated 120 volts, 500 watts. If
the voltage applied across the lamp is twice the
rated value, compute the current that flows
through the lamp. Use the per-unit method.

Transformation Between Bases
Generally per-unit values given to another base
can be converted to new base by by the
equations:
Sbase1
( P, Q, S ) pu _ on _ base _ 2  ( P, Q, S ) pu _ on _ base _1
Sbase 2
V
V pu _ on _ base _ 2  V pu _ on _ base _1 base1
Vbase 2

(Vbase1 ) 2 Sbase 2
( R, X , Z ) pu _ on _ base _ 2  ( R, X , Z ) pu _ on _ base _1
(Vbase 2 ) 2 Sbase1

## When performing calculations in a power system, every

per-unit value must be converted to the same base.
