Gauss-Seidel Load Flow


Gauss-Seidel Voltage Equations of the form shown in (6) are written for all buses except for the swing bus. The solution proceeds iteratively from an estimate of all bus voltages For a Load Bus (Type 3) whose real power and reactive power are specified, the G-S voltage equation is used directly to compute the next estimate of the bus voltage. For a Generator Bus (Type 2) where the voltage magnitude is specified, an estimate of Qp must be determined first. This estimate is then compared with the reactive power limits of the generator. If it falls within the limits, the specified voltage is maintained and the computed Qp is inputted, in the Gauss-Seidel equation. Otherwise, the reactive power is set to an appropriate limit (Qmin or Qmax) and the bus is treated as a load bus in the current iteration.

If the real and imaginary part (real and reactive power) of any of these power mismatches is greater than a convergence criterion, steps 1, 2 & 3 are repeated until convergence is achieved.

Observations:

1. Real Power is injected into the bus (Generator Operation), must be positive (Ei leads Vt) 2. Real Power is drawn from the bus (Motor Operation), must be negative (Ei lags Vt) 3. In actual operation, the numeric value of is small & since the slope of Sine function is maximum for small values, a minute change in can cause a substantial change in Pt

4. Reactive Power flow depends on relative values of EiCos and Vt 5. Since the slope of Cosine function is minimum for small values of angle, Reactive Power is controlled by varying Ei
Over-excitation (increasing Ei) will deliver Reactive Power into the Bus Under-excitation (decreasing Ei) will absorb Reactive Power from the Bus
