Analysis of Radial Distribution Systems with FACTS Devices Using a Fast Line Flow-Based Algorithm

L Dinesh


The electrical energy produced at the generating station is conveyed to the consumers through a network of transmission and distribution systems. It is often difficult to draw a line between the transmission and distribution systems of a large power system. It is impossible to distinguish the two merely by their voltage because what was considered as a high voltage because what was considered as a high voltage a few years ago is now considered as a low voltage. In general, distribution system is that part of power system which distributes power to the consumers for utilization. Analysis of radial distribution systems with embedded series FACTS devices is facilitated by a formulation of power flow  equations with bus voltage magnitudes and line flows as independent variables The line flow-based (LFB) formulation is shown to provide easy implementation with multiple series FACTS devices in the system and enable direct evaluation of the FACTS device ratings.
