Load Flow Analysis



A computer model of generators, network and typical network loads was created to analyse a proposal to embed two 800 kVA synchronous generators into an 11 kV network. This model was used to assess the effects of various generator operating constraints including different transformer tap settings and operating power factor. Also, the volt drop in the network caused by sudden loss of generation was analysed. The study investigated the optimum location for the connection of the generation into the network and the optimum point in the network to install a voltage regulator.
