2 Voltage Security Voltage security is the ability of the system to maintain adequate and controllable voltage levels at all system load buses. The main concern is that voltage levels outside of a specified range can affect the operation of the customers loads. Voltage security may be divided into two main problems: 1. Low voltage: voltage level is outside of pre-defined range. 2. Voltage instability: an uncontrolled voltage decline. You should know that low voltage does not necessarily imply voltage instability no low voltage does not necessarily imply voltage stability voltage instability does necessarily imply low voltage
3 There have been several individuals that have significantly progressed the field of voltage security. These include: Ajjarapu from ISU Van Cutsem: See the book by Van Cutsem and Vournas. Alvarado, Dobson, Canizares, & Greene: There are a couple other texts that provide good treatments of the subject: Carson Taylor: Power System Voltage Stability Prabha Kundur: Power System Stability & Control Resources
4 Our treatment of voltage security will proceed as follows: Voltage instability in a simple system Voltage instability in a large system Brief treatment of bifurcation analysis Continuation power flow (path following) methods Sensitivity methods
5 Voltage instability in a simple system Consider the per-phase equivalent of a very simple three phase power system given below: Z=R+jX I V1V1 V2V2 S 12 Node 1 Node 2 + _ _ + V1V1 V2V2 S D =-S 12
6 Let G=0. Then…. Note B>0
7 Now we can get S D =P D +jQ D =-(P 21 +jQ 21 ) by - exchanging the 1 and 2 subscripts in the previous equations. - negating Define 12 = 1 - 2
8 Define: is the power factor angle of the load, i.e., Then we can also express S D as: Define β=tan. Then Note that phi, and therefore beta, is positive for lagging, negative for leading.
9 So we have developed the following equations…. Equating the expressions for P D and for Q D, we have: Square both equations and add them to get…..
10 Manipulation yields: Note that this is a quadratic in |V 2 | 2. As such, it has the solution:
11 Lets assume that the sending end voltage is |V 1 |=1.0 pu and B=2 pu. Then our previous equation becomes: You can make the P-V plot using the following matlab code. % pf = 0.97 lagging beta=0.25 pdn=[ ]; v2n=sqrt((1-beta.*pdn - sqrt(1-pdn.*(pdn+2*beta)))/2); pdp=[ ]; v2p=sqrt((1-beta.*pdp + sqrt(1-pdp.*(pdp+2*beta)))/2); pd1=[pdn pdp]; v21=[v2n v2p]; % pf = 1.0 beta=0 pdn=[ ]; v2n=sqrt((1-beta.*pdn - sqrt(1-pdn.*(pdn+2*beta)))/2); pdp=[ ]; v2p=sqrt((1-beta.*pdp + sqrt(1-pdp.*(pdp+2*beta)))/2); pd2=[pdn pdp]; v22=[v2n v2p]; % pf =.97 leading beta=-0.25 pdn=[ ]; v2n=sqrt((1-beta.*pdn - sqrt(1-pdn.*(pdn+2*beta)))/2); pdp=[ ]; v2p=sqrt((1-beta.*pdp + sqrt(1-pdp.*(pdp+2*beta)))/2); pd3=[pdn pdp]; v23=[v2n v2p]; plot(pd1,v21,pd2,v22,pd3,v23)
12 Plots of the previous equation for different power factors Real power loading, P D |V 2 |
13 Some comments regarding the PV curves: 1. Each curve has a maximum load. This value is typically called the maximum system load or the system loadability. 2. If the load is increased beyond the loadability, the voltages will decline uncontrollably. 3. For a value of load below the loadability, there are two voltage solutions. The upper one corresponds to one that can be reached in practice. The lower one is correct mathematically, but I do not know of a way to reach these points in practice. 4. In the lagging or unity power factor condition, it is clear that the voltage decreases as the load power increases until the loadability. In this case, the voltage instability phenomena is detectable, i.e., operator will be aware that voltages are declining before the loadability is exceeded. 5. In the leading case, one observes that the voltage is flat, or perhaps even increasing a little, until just before the loadability. Thus, in the leading condition, voltage instability is not very detectable. The leading condition occurs during high transfer conditions when the load is light or when the load is highly compensated.
14 QV Curves We consider our simple (lossless) system again, with the equations Now, again assume that V 1 =1.0, and for a given value of P D and V 2, compute 12 from the first equation, and then Q from the second equation. Repeat for various values of V 2 to obtain a QV curve for the specified real load P D. v1=1.0; b=1.0; pd1=0.1 v2=[1.1,1.05,1.0,.95,.90,.85,.80,.75,.70,.65,.60,.55,.50,.45,.40,.35,.30,.25,.20,.15]; sintheta=pd1./(b*v1.*v2); theta=asin(sintheta); qd1=-v2.^2*b+v1*b*v2.*cos(theta); plot(qd1,v2); You can make the P-V plot using the following matlab code. The curve on the next page illustrates….
15 Q-V Curve QDQD |V 2 |
16 Homework 1. Draw the PV-curve for the following cases, and for each, determine the loadability. a. B=2, |V1|=1.0, pf=0.97 lagging b. B=2, |V1|=1.0, pf=0.95 lagging c. B=2, |V1|=1.06, pf=0.97 lagging d. B=10, |V1|=1.0, pf=0.97 lagging Identify the effect on loadability of power factor, sending-end voltage, and line reactance. 2. Draw the QV-curves for the following cases, and for each, determine the maximum Q D. a. B=1, |V1|=1.0, P D =0.1 b. B=1, |V1|=1.0, P D =0.2 c. B=1, |V1|=1.06, P D =0.1 d. B=2, |V1|=1.0, P D =0.1 Identify the effect on maximum Q D of real power demand, sending-end voltage, and line reactance.
17 Some comments regarding the QV Curves In practice, these curves may be drawn with a power flow program by 1. modeling at the target bus a synchronous condenser (a generator with P=0) having very wide reactive limits 2. Setting |V| to a desired value 3. Solving the power flow. 4. Reading the Q of the generator. 5. Repeat 2-4 for a range of voltages. QV curves have one advantage over PV curves: They are easier to obtain if you only have a power flow (standard power flows will not solve near or below the nose of PV curves but they will solve completely around the nose of QV curves.)
18 Voltage instability in a large system: Influential factors: Load modeling Reactive power limits on generators Loss of a circuit Availability of switchable shunt devices 1.Voltage instability occurs when the reactive power supply cannot meet the reactive power demand of the network. Transmission line loading is too high Reactive sources (generators) are too far from load centers Generator terminal voltages are too low. Insufficient load reactive compensation 2. Reactive power cannot be moved very far in a network (vars do not travel), since I 2 X is large. Two important ideas on which understanding of the above influences rest: Implication: The SYSTEM can have a var surplus but experience voltage instability if a local area has a var deficiency.
19 Load modeling In analyzing voltage instability, it is necessary to consider the network under various voltage profiles. Voltage stability depends on the level of current drawn by the loads. The level of current drawn by the loads can depend on the voltage seen by the loads. Therefore, voltage instability analysis requires a model of how the load responds to load variations. Thus, load modeling is very influential in voltage instability analysis.
20 Exponential load model A typical load model for a load at a bus is the exponential model: where the subscript 0 indicates the initial operating conditions. The exponents and are specific to the type of load, e.g., Incandescent lamps Room air conditioner Furnace fan Battery charger Electronic compact florescent Conventional florescent
21 Polynomial load model The ZIP or polynomial model is a special case of the more general exponential model, given by a sum of 3 exponential models with specified subscripts: where again the subscript 0 indicates the initial operating conditions. So this model is composed of three components: constant impedance component (p 1, q 1 ) - lighting constant current component (p 2, q 2 ) – motor/lighting constant power component (p 3,, q 3 ) – loads served by LTCs Usually, values p 2 and q 2 are the largest.
22 Understanding the effect of each component on voltage instability depends on understanding two ideas: 1. Voltage instability is alleviated when the demand reduces. This is because I reduces and I 2 X reactive losses in the circuits reduce. 2. Since voltage instability causes voltage decline, alleviation of voltage instability results if demand reduces with voltage decline. This gives the key to understanding the effect of load modeling. constant impedance load (p 1 ) is GOOD since demand reduces with square of voltage. constant current load (p 2 ) is OK since demand reduces with voltage. Constant power load (p 3 ) is BAD since demand does not change as voltage declines. Effect of Load modeling
23 The effects of voltage variation on loads, and thus of loads on voltage instability, cannot be fully captured using exponential or polynomial load models because of the following three aspects. Thermostatic load recovery Induction motor stalling/tripping Load tap changers Some considerations in load modeling
24 Heating load is the most common type of thermostatic load, and it is one for which we are all quite familiar. Although much heating is done with natural gas as the primary fuel, some heating is done electrically, and even gas heating systems always contain some electric components as well, e.g., the fans. Other thermostatic loads include space heaters/coolers, water heaters, and refrigerators. When voltage drops, thermostatic loads initially decrease in power consumption. But after voltages remain low for a few minutes, the load regulation devices (thermostats) will start the loads or will maintain them for longer periods so that more of them are on at the same time. This is referred to as thermostatic load recovery, and it tends to exacerbate voltage problems at the high voltage level. Thermostatic load recovery
25 Three phase induction motors comprise a significant portion of the total load and so its response to voltage variation is important, especially since it has a rather unique response. Consider the steady-state induction motor per-phase equivalent model. Induction motor stalling/tripping Z a =R 1 +jX 1 Z b= R c //jX m X2X2 R 2 +R 2 (1-s)/s =R 2 / s V1V1 I2I2
26 The (referred to stator) rotor current is given by: Induction motor stalling/tripping whereand Under normal conditions, the slip s is typically very small, less than 0.05 (5%). In this case, R 2 /s >> R 2, and I 2 is small. But as voltage V 1 decreases, the electromagnetic torque developed decreases as well, the motor slows down. Ultimately, the motor may stall. In this case, s=1, causing R 2 /s = R 2. Thus, one sees that the current I 2 is much larger for stalled conditions than for normal conditions. Because of X 1 and X 2 of the induction motor, the large stall current represents a large reactive load. Large motors have undervoltage tripping to guard against this, but smaller motors (refrigerators/air conditioners) may not.
27 Tap changers: Load tap changers (LTC, OLTC, ULTC, TCUL) are transformers that connect the transmission or subtransmission systems to the distribution systems. They are typically equipped with regulation capability that allow them to control the voltage on the low side so that voltage deviation on the high side is not seen on the low side. V1V1 V 1 /t In per unit, we say that the tap is t:1, where t may range from pu a single step may be about pu (5/8%= is very common) a change of one step typically requires about 5 seconds. there is a deadband of 2-3 times the tap step to prevent excessive tap change. t:1 HV side LV side V 1 and t are given in pu. Under low voltage conditions at the high side, the LTC will decrease t in order to try and increase V 1 /t.
28 Tap changers: Thus, as long as the LTC is regulating (not at a limit), a voltage decline on the high side does not result in voltage decline at the load, in the steady-state, so that even if the load is constant Z, it appears to the high side as if it is constant power. So a simple load model for voltage instability analysis, for systems using LTC, is constant power! There are 2 qualifications to using such a simple model (constant power): 1. Fast voltage dips are seen at the low side (since LTC action typically requires minutes), and if the dip is low enough, induction motors may trip, resulting in an immediate decrease in load power. 2. Once the LTC hits its limit (minimum t), then the low side voltage begins to decline, and it becomes necessary to model the load voltage sensitivity.
29 Generator capability curve: P Q Field current limit due to field heating, enforced by overexcitation limiter on I f. Armature current limit due to armature heating, enforced by operator control of P and I f. Limit due to steady-state instability (small internal voltage E gives small |E||V|Bsin ), and due to stator end-region heating from induced eddy currents, enforced by underexcitation limiter (UEL). Q max Q min Typical approximation used in power flow programs.
30 Effect of generator reactive power limits: 1. Voltage instability is typically preceded by generators hitting their upper reactive limit, so modeling Q max is very important to analysis of voltage instability. 2. Most power flow programs represent generator Q max as fixed. However, this is an approximation, and one that should be recognized. In reality, Q max is not fixed. The reactive capability diagram shows quite clearly that Q max is a function of P and becomes more restrictive as P increases. A first-order improvement to fixed Q max is to model Q max as a function of P. 3. Q max is set according to the Over-eXcitation Limiter (OXL). The field circuit has a rated steady-state field current I f-max, set by field circuit heating limitations. Since heating is proportional to, we see that smaller overloads can be tolerated for longer times. Therefore, most modern OXLs are set with a time-inverse characteristic: 4. As soon as the OXL acts to limit I f, then no further increase in reactive power is possible. When drawing PV or QV curves, the action of a generator hitting Q max, will manifest itself as a sharp discontinuity in the curve. Overload time (sec) I f I rated OXL characteristic

32 Loss of a circuit I/2 I P P Compare reactive losses with and without second circuit Q loss =(I/2) 2 X+ (I/2) 2 X=I 2 X/2 Assume both circuits have reactance of X. Q loss =I 2 X Implication: Loss of a circuit will always increase reactive losses in the network. This effect is compounded by the fact that losing a circuit also means losing its line charging capacitance. X X
33 Kundur, on pp , has an excellent example which illustrates many of the aforementioned effects. The illustration was done using a long-term time domain simulation program (Eurostag).
34 Influence of switched shunt capacitors I P I P P (demand) |V| With capacitorWithout capacitor
35 But, shunt compensation has some drawbacks: It produces reactive power in proportion to the square of the the voltage, therefore when voltages drop, so does the reactive power supplied by the capacitor. It has a maximum compensation level beyond which stable operation is not possible (See pg. 972 of Kundur, and next slide). (A synchronous condenser and an SVC do not have these 2 drawbacks) It results in a flatter PV curve and therefore makes voltage instability less detectable. Therefore, as the load grows in areas lacking generation, more and more shunt compensation is used to keep voltages in normal operating ranges. By so doing, normal operating points progressively approach loadability.

37 Bifurcation analysis (ref: A. Gaponov-Grekhov, Nonlinearities in action and also Van Cutsem & Vournas, Voltage stability of electric power systems.) Consider representing the dynamics of the power system as: A differential-algebraic system (DAS): Here x represents state variables of the system (e.g., rotor angles, rotor speed, etc), y represents the algebraic variables (bus voltage magnitudes & voltage angles), and p represents the real and reactive power injections at each bus. The function F represents the differential equations for the generators, and the function G represents the power flow equations. A bifurcation, for a dynamic system, is an acquisition of a new quality by the motion the dynamic system, caused by small changes in its parameters. A power system that has experienced a bifurcation will generally have corresponding motion that is undesirable. Eqts. 1
38 There are at least two types of bifurcation: Hopf: two eigenvalues become purely imaginary: a birth of oscillatory or periodic motion. Saddle node: a disappearance of an equilibrium state. The stable operating equilibrium coalesces with an unstable equilibrium and disappears. The dynamic consequence of a generic saddle node bifurcation is: a monotonic decline in system variables. So we think it is the saddle node bifurcation that causes voltage instability. Types of bifurcations
39 The Jacobian matrix of eqts. 1 is The unreduced Jacobian: and it is referred to as the unreduced Jacobian of the DAS, where Eqt. 2
40 We may reduce eq. 2 by eliminating the variable y The reduced Jacobian: This means we need to force the top right hand submatrix to 0, which we can do by multiplying the bottom row by -F Y G Y -1 and then adding to the top row. This results in: So that the reduced Jacobian matrix is a Schurs complement:
41 Implications 2: 1.If G Y is nonsingular, then singularity of A implies singularity of J so that we may analyze eigenvalues of A to ascertain stability. 2.The fact that G Y may be nonsingular, yet A singular, means that load flow convergence is not a sufficient condition for voltage stability. Stability: Fact 1 : The conditions for a saddle node bifurcation are 1.Equilibrium: 2.Singularity of the unreduced Jacobian det(J)=0 (a 0 eigenvalue, J noninvertible). Fact 2: The determinant of a Schurs complement times the determinant of G Y gives the determinant of the original matrix: det(J)=det(A)*det(G Y ) if G Y is nonsingular. Implication 1: The stability of an equilibrium point of the DAS depends on the eigenvalues of the unreduced Jacobian J. The system will experience a SNB as parameter p increases when J has a zero eigenvalue.
42 Singularity of load flow Jacobian: Singular Nonsingular AGYGY J Singular Nonsingular Singular (unstable) Nonsingular (stable) Implications 2: 1.If G Y is nonsingular, then singularity of A implies singularity of J so that we may analyze eigenvalues of A to ascertain stability. 2.The fact that G Y may be nonsingular, yet A singular, means that load flow convergence is not a sufficient condition for voltage stability.
43 Singularity of load flow Jacobian: So voltage instability analysis using only a load flow Jacobian may yield optimistic results when compared to results from analysis of A, that is, stable points (based on G y ) may not be really stable. => However, I believe it is true that points identified as unstable using the load flow Jacobian will be really unstable (Schurs complement does not support that singularity of G Y implies singularity of J, however, because it is only valid if G Y is nonsingular). Note: Sauer and Pai, 1990, provide an in-depth analysis of the relation between singularity of G Y and singularity of J, and show some special cases for which singularity of G Y implies singularity of J. Singular (unstable) Nonsingular (stable) AGYGY J Singular (unstable) Nonsingular (stable) Singular (unstable) Nonsingular (stable)
44 Singularity of load flow Jacobian: So, we assume that load flow Jacobian analysis provides an upper bound on stability. Fact: The bifurcation (zero eigenvalue of G Y ) of the load flow Jacobian corresponds to the turn-around point (i.e., the nose point) of a P-V or Q-V curve drawn using a power flow program. This can be proven using an optimization approach. See pp of the text by Van Cutsem and Vournas. We have previously denoted the power flow equations as G(x,y,p)=0, but now we denote them as G(y,p)=0, without the dependence on the state variables x (which relate to the machine modeling and include, minimally, and of each machine).
45 So we turn our effort to identifying the saddle node bifurcation (SNB) for the power flow Jacobian matrix. The Jacobian can reach a SNB in many ways. For example, increase the impedance in a key tie line increase the generation level at a generator with weak transmission, while decreasing generation at all other generators. increase the load at a single bus increase the load at all buses. In all cases, we are looking for the nose point of the V- curve, where is the parameter that is being increased.) Most applications focus on the last method (increase load at all buses). Key questions here are: direction of increase: are bus loads increased proportionally, or in some other way? dispatch policy: how do the generators pick up the load increase ? We will assume proportional load increase with governor load flow (generators pick up in proportion to their rating) |V|
46 |V| Define: critical point - the operating conditions, characterized by a certain value of, beyond which operation is not acceptable. Question 1: What can cause the critical point to differ from the SNB point ? Question 2: How can knowledge of the critical point provide a security measure? Question 3: Does the P-V curve provide a forecast of the system trajectory ?
47 Solution approaches to finding *, the value of corresponding to SNB. Approach 1: Search for * using some iterative search procedure. 1. i=1 2. Using (i), solve power flow using Newton-Raphson. Here, we iteratively solve G(y,p)=0. At each step, we must solve for y in the eqt: G Y y = p 3. If solved, (i+1)= (i) +. i=i+1 go to 2 else if not solved, *= (i+1) endif 4. End But big problem: as gets close to *, G Y becomes ill-conditioned (close to singular). This means that at some point before the critical point, step 2 will no longer be feasible.
48 Approach 2: Use the continuation power flow (CPF). Predictor step Corrector step Pass * ? Select continuation parameter Stop No. Yes.
49 The predictor step: The power flow equations are functions of the bus voltages and bus angles and the bus injections: Augment the power flow equations so that they are functions of (dependence on p is carried through the dependence on ). Now recognize that so that If we want to compute the change in the power flow equations dG due to small changes in the variables, V, and, that move us closer to the loadability point as we move from one solution i to another close solution i+1, then dG= G( (i),V (i), (i) )- G( (i+1),V (i+1), (i+1) ) = 0 – 0 = 0 p p 0
50 BUT, we have added one unknown,, to the power flow problem without adding a corresponding equation, i.e., in G(,V, )=0, there are are N equations but N+1 variables, so that in eq. 3, the matrix [G G V, G ], has N rows (the number of eqts being differentiated) and N+1 columns (the number of variables for which each eqt is differentiated). So we need another equation in order to solve this. What to do ? Eq. 3 Here, each set of partial derivatives are evaluated at the operating conditions corresponding to the old solution. If the power flow equations are linear with the 3 sets of variables in the region between the old solution and the (close) new one, the following is satisfied:
51 The answer to this can be found by identifying how we will be using using the solution to eqt. 3. Note the solution corresponding to the new point is: If we define to be the step size, then we can rewrite this as where Here the p indicates that this is the predicted point.
52 We call the update vector (with the differentials) the tangent vector, denoted by t. This vector provides the direction to move in order to find a new solution (i+1,p) from the old one (i). We can think of this in terms of the following picture…..
53 |V| Tangent vector
54 So we can set one of the tangent vector elements to any value we like, then compute the other elements. This provides us with our other equation…. For example, consider a 2-dimensional vector…. Direction = 30 o x1x1 x2x2 x 2 =x 1 tan(30) so: - the direction is specified by selecting x 1 =1, x 2 =0.5774, - the direction is specified by selecting x 1 =0.5, x 2 = Note: In specifying a direction using an n-dimensional vector, only n-1 of the elements are constrained - one element can be chosen to be any value we like.
55 Suppose that we set the k-th parameter in the tangent vector to be 1.0. Then our equation given as eq. 3 can be augmented to become: where To select, we would have: k ] [ = k e ] [ = k e Which would force d =1.
56 The parameter for which we select k is called the continuation parameter, and it can be any load level (or group of load levels), or it can be a voltage magnitude. Initially, when the solution is far from the nose, the continuation parameter is typically. The parameter is called the step size, and it can be selected using various techniques. The simplest of these is to just set it to a constant. Lets try this on our simple problem formulated at the beginning of these slides.
57 HOMEWORK #2, Due Monday, Jan Using the equations at the bottom of slide 7, with the left-hand side (PD and QD) and also V1 given by the problem statement, we know everything except V2 and theta. 2. Now, just bring the right hand side of these 2 equations over to the left-hand side, and you have the 2 equations that correspond to G(y,p)=0. 3. Solve these equations to get the corresponding power flow solution (but you do not need Newton-Raphson to do this – you can just use the equation at the bottom of slide 10). 4. Now you need to replace the value specified in the equations for PD (which is 0.4 according to the problem statement) with 0.4*lambda. This gives you the equations in the form of slide 49: 0=G(theta,V,lambda). Note, however, that G is really two equations: G1 and G2. 5. Now you need to formulate the equations on the slide 55. This is a matter of taking derivatives and then evaluating those derivatives at the solution that you obtained above. Note, however, the each element in the matrix of slide 55 actually represents 2 elements. That is: | dG1/dthetadG1/dVdG1/dlambda| | dG2/dthetadG2/dVdG2/dlambda| | | 6. Evaluate each of the above matrix elements at the solution obtained in step Then solve these equations for the tangent vector. You can do this by inverting the above matrix (use matlab or a calculator to do this) and then multiply the right-hand-side by this inverted matrix. 8. Then take a step using an appropriately chosen step size per the equation on slide Beginning from your predicted point that you identified in step 8 of #2a, develop equations for approach a, solve them, and identify the resulting corrected point in terms of voltage and power. 10. Repeat #9 except implement approach b. #9 and #10 will be explained in next few slides.
58 Note, however, that the predicted point will satisfy the power flow equations only if the power flow equations are linear, which they are not. So our point needs correction. This leads to the corrector step. There are two different approaches for performing the corrector step. Approach a: Perpendicular intersection method. Approach b: Parameterization method Corrector step
59 Approach a: perpendicular intersection Here, we find the intersection between the power flow equations (the PV curve) and a plane that is perpendicular to the tangent vector. |V| t y (i+1) y (i+1,p) y (i) Solve simultaneously, for y (i+1) Use Newton-Raphson to solve the above (requires only 1-3 iterations since we have good starting point). If no convergence, cut step size ( ) by half and repeat. The last equation says the inner (dot) product of 2 vectors is zero.
60 Approach b: Parameterization The corrector step is performed by identifying a continuation parameter (see slide 62) – can be λ fixing it at the value found in the predictor step; then solving the power flow equations. |V| t y (i+1) y (i+1,p) y (i) Here, y k (i+1) is the continuation parameter; it is the variable y k (i+1) that corresponds to the k-th element dy k (i+1) in the tangent vector and is usually λ at first but often becomes something else as the nose point is neared. The parameter is the value to which y k is set, which would be the value found in the predictor step. As in approach a, we can solve this using Newton-Raphson. If no convergence, cut step size ( ) by half and repeat. Solve simultaneously, for y (i+1) Vertical corrections correspond to a fixed load-continuation parameter, horizontal corrections to a fixed voltage-continuation parameter.
61 Detection of critical point: We will know that we have surpassed the critical point when the sign of d in the tangent vector becomes negative, because it is at this point where the loading reaches a maximum point and begins to decrease. |V| x increasing decreasing
62 Selection of continuation parameter: Typically, y k is going to be one of these. The continuation parameter is selected from among and the state variables in y according to the one that is changing the most with. This will be the parameter that has the largest element in the tangent vector. relatively unstressed conditions (far from nose): generally relatively stressed conditions (close to nose): generally the voltage magnitude of the weakest bus, as it changes a great deal as is changed, when we are close to *. The one changing the most with λ is most sensitive and represents a variable that we want to be careful with as we look for another solution, so it makes sense to keep it constant.
63 Selection of continuation parameter (unstressed condition): |V| y (i+1) y (i+1,p) y (i) Here, is fixed. The continuation parameter is selected from among and the state variables in y according to the one that is changing the most with. This will be the parameter that has the largest element in the tangent vector. relatively unstressed conditions (far from nose): generally. => This looks like below.
64 relatively stressed conditions (close to nose): generally the voltage magnitude of the weakest bus. Here, the voltage being plotted is chosen as the continuation parameter. |V| y (i+1) y (i+1,p) y (i) Here, |V| is fixed. Essentially, a variable is fixed as a parameter (the voltage), and the parameter ( ) is treated as a variable. This process of selecting a variable to fix is sometimes called the parameterization step. -Scott Greene, Ph.D. dissertation, Selection of continuation parameter (stressed condition):
65 A central question: How does the continuation technique alleviate the ill- conditioning problem experienced by a regular power flow ? Refer to the solutions procedures for the two corrector approaches. Perpendicular interesection Solve simultaneously, for y (i+1) Parameterization Solve simultaneously, for y (i+1) In both cases, we use Newton-Raphson to solve, so we need to obtain the Jacobian. But the Jacobian is slightly different than in normal power flow.
66 The Jacobian of the power flow equations is just G y, but the Jacobian of the equations in the two corrector approaches will have an extra row and column. Here, C is the additional equation, and x k is the selected continuation parameter. This addition of a row and column to the Jacobian has the effect of improving the conditioning so that the previously singular points can in fact be obtained. In other words, the additional row and column provides that this Jacobian is nonsingular at * where the standard Jacobian is singular.
67 Known codes for continuation methods: 1.Claudio Canizarres at University of Waterloo: C-code See UWPFLOW is a research tool that has been designed to calculate local bifurcations related to system limits or singularities in the system Jacobian. The program also generates a series of output files that allow further analyses, such as tangent vectors, left and right eigenvectors at a singular bifurcation point, Jacobians, power flow solutions at different loading levels, voltage stability indices, etc 2.I have Matlab code that does it – from Scott Greene. 3.Venkataramana Ajjarapu (ISU): Fortran code 4.Powertech has a program
68 Calculation of sensitivities for voltage instability analysis What is a sensitivity ? It is the derivative of an equation with respect to a variable. It shows how parameter 1 changes with parameter 2. It is: exact when parameter 2 depends linearly on parameter 1. It is approximate when parameter 2 depends nonlinearly on parameter 1, but it is quite accurate if it is only used close to where it is calculated.
69 Consider the system characterized by G(y). Then is the sensitivity of the equation G with respect to y, evaluated at y *. G(y) y y*y* Slope is G/ y evaluated at y *. y Its usefulness is that once it is calculated, it can be used to QUICKLY evaluate f(y) from G(y) G(y * )+ ( G/ y| y* ) y, BUT ONLY AS LONG AS y IS CLOSE TO y*. y
70 Consider parameter p: we desire to obtain the sensitivity of G(y,p) to p. Typical parameters p would be a bus load, a bus power factor, or a generation level. Very important to distinguish between voltage sensitivities voltage instability sensitivities What is the difference between them in terms of what they mean ? how to compute them ?
71 Sensitivities for bus voltage These we compute at the current operating condition. For a given continuation parameter, they can be obtained from the first predictor step in the continuation power flow. |V| Current operating point Recall that this provides us with the tangent vector, given by: The tangent vector is the vector of sensitivities with respect to a small change in, so the portion of the vector designated as dV is exactly the voltage sensitivities.
72 Sensitivities for voltage instability Here, it is important to realize that the measure of voltage instability, the loading margin, depends on an operating condition different from the present operating condition. The implication is that we must look at sensitivities of the loading margin, not of the voltage. |V| Current operating point So we want the sensitivities evaluated at this point, i.e., the SNB point. Loading margin
73 Let S be the vector of real and reactive load powers, and k be the direction of load increase. Also, define L as the loading margin (a scalar), so that the load powers resulting in the SNB point are given by: Derivation of loading margin sensitivities at SNB point. We desire to find the sensitivity of the loading margin L to a change in the parameter p. We denote this sensitivity by L p.
74 Consider the system characterized by G(y,S, p) = 0 Assumption: the system has a SNB at (y *,S *, p * ), i.e., : 1. G(y *,S *, p * ) = 0 (an equilibrium point) 2. G y (y *,S *, p * ) is singular (zero eigenvalue), and w is a left eigenvector of G y (y *,S *, p * ), corresponding to the zero eigenvalue so that (by definition of the left eigenvector) w T G y (y *,S *, p * ) =0 w T =0 Note that G y (y *,S *, p * ), being singular, cannot be inverted, but we can compute it (that is, G y (y *,S *, p * )), and its eigenvectors. 3. w T G S (y *,S *, p * ) 0 We want the sensitivity of the loading margin to p.
75 The points (y,S, p) satisfying numbers 1 and 2 correspond to SNB points, and we can obtain a curve of such points by varying p about its nominal value p *. Linearization of this curve about the SNB point results in where the notation | * indicates the derivatives are evaluated at the SNB point. Pre-multiplication by the left eigenvector w results in: By #2 on the previous slide, the first term in the above is zero. So...
76 Now recall the relation of the load powers to the loading margin…. Substituting this expression for the load powers into eqt. *, Eqt. * And the loading margin sensitivity to parameter p is: So p may be, for example, real power load at a bus (to detect the most effective load shedding) or reactive power at a bus (to determine where to site a shunt cap).
77 Some comments about computing L p The left eigenvector w must be computed for the Jacobian G y evaluated at the SNB point. You only need to compute w and G S once, independent of how many sensitivities you need. Methods to compute the left eigenvector w include QR or inverse iteration. The vector of derivatives with respect to the parameter p, which is G p, is typically sparse. For example, if you want to compute the sensitivity to a bus power, then there would be only 1 non-zero entry in G p. The matrix of derivatives with respect to the load powers, G S, using constant power load models, is a diagonal matrix with ones in the rows corresponding to load buses. This is because a particular load variable would ONLY occur in the equation corresponding to the bus where it is located, and for these equations, these variables appear linearly with 1 as coefficient.
78 Some comments about extensions Multiple sensitivities may be computed using G p (a matrix) instead of G p (a vector). In this case, the result is a vector. A sensitivity to a line outage may be obtained by letting p contain elements corresponding to the outaged line parameters. Getting multiple sensitivities can be especially attractive when we want to find the sensitivity to several simultaneous changes. One good example is to find the sensitivity to changes in multiple loads. A special case of this is to find the sensitivity to changes at ALL loads, which is very typical, given a particular loading direction k. Then
79 Some comments about extensions A sensitivity to a line outage may be obtained by letting p contain elements corresponding to the outaged line parameters: R (series conductance), X (series reactance), and B (line charging). Then use the multiple parameter approach. 3 3 Zpq=R + jX pq jB Here, p = [R X B] T. Note that p is NOT SMALL ! Therefore L may have considerable error. For that reason, this one needs to be careful about using this approach to compute the actual loading margins following contingencies. However, it certainly can be used for RANKING contingencies. One might consider having a quick approximation and a long exact risk calculation.
80 Greene, et al., also propose a quadratic sensitivity which requires calculation of a second order term L pp. This is used together with the linear sensitivity according to Some comments about alternatives Invariant Subspace Parametic Sensitivity (ISPS) by Ajjarapu. Advantages: – based on differential-algebraic model – provides sensitivities at ANY point on the P-V curve It requires significantly more computation but can provide greater accuracy over a larger range of p.
