P=200 MW Q=80 MVAR Defn: Distributed Slack Bus - Losses to the system are supplied by several generators. Defn: Slack Bus - That generator bus at which losses to the system will be provided. (Often the largest bus in the system.)

Formulating the Equation Set.
© Copyright 1999 Daniel Tylavsky Formulating the Equation Set. Necessary (but not sufficient) condition for a unique solution is that the number of equations is equal to the number of unknowns. For linear system, must additionally require that all equations be independent. For nonlinear systems, independence does not guarantee a unique solution, e.g., f(x)=x2-4x+3=0 X=1 X=3

Can we apply Newton’s method to these equations in complex form?
© Copyright 1999 Daniel Tylavsky Sometimes the power balance equation is written by taking the complex conjugate of each side of the equation. Can we apply Newton’s method to these equations in complex form? Recall Newton’s method is based on Taylor’s theorem, which is complex form is:

Theorem: If a function is analytic then it can be represented by a Taylor series. Theorem: If the Cauchy- Rieman equationss hold and the derivatives of f are continuous, then the function is analytic. Homework: Show that the Cauchy-Rieman equations are not obeyed by the power balance equation.

There are three common ways of writing the power balance equation using real variables. Polar Form:

Rectangular Form: Show for homework:

For our power flow problem formulation we’ll need the following set of equations for each bus type: P-Q Bus P-V Bus (not on VAR limits) (Important: When on VAR limits, the PV bus equations are the same as the PQ bus equations)
