ABSTRACT This paper presents a simple approach for load flow analysis of a radial distribution networks. The proposed method uses the simple recursive equation to compute the voltage magnitude and angle. The proposed approach has been tested on several Radial Distribution Systems of different size and configuration and found to be computationally efficient and analyze a voltage stability index in that network. It shows the value of voltage stability index at each node and predicts which node is more sensitive to voltage collapse. This paper also presents the effect on voltage stability index with variation in active power, reactive power, active and reactive power both.

INTRODUCTION THE exact electrical performance of the system operating under steady state is required in efficient way known load−flow study that provides the real and reactive power losses of the system and voltages at different nodes of the system. With the growing market in the present time, effective planning can only be assured with the help of efficient load−flow study. The distribution network is radial in nature having high R/X ratio whereas the transmission system is loop in nature having high X/R ratio. Therefore, the variables for the load−flow analysis of distribution systems are different from that of transmission systems .The distribution networks are known as ill-conditioned. The conventional Gauss Seidel (GS) and Newton Raphson (NR) method does not converge for the distribution networks. A number of efficient load−flow methods for transmission systems are available in literature. A few methods had been reported in literature for load−flow analysis of distribution systems. The distribution system , which have separate feeders radiating from a single substation and feed the distribution at only one end are called radial distribution system (RDS). This paper presents two issue in RDS (a) load flow method (b) Voltage stability index. The radial distribution system have high R/X ratio. Due to this reason, conventional Newton-Raphson method and Fast Decoupled load flow method fails to converge in many cases. Kersting & Mendive [1] & Kersting[2] have developed load flow techniques based on ladder theory whereas Steven et al [3] modified it and proved faster than earlier methods. However, it fails to converge in 5 out of 12 case studies. L. Kumar and R.Ranjan[4] have

develop a load flow method based on simple recursive method. Baran & Wu [5] have developed a load flow method based on Newton Raphson method, but it requires a Jacobean matrix, a series of matrix multiplication, and at least one matrix inversion. Hence, it is considered numerically cumbersome and computationally inefficient. The choice of solution method for particular application is difficult. It requires a careful analysis of comparative merits and demerits of those methods available. A new power flow method for radial distribution networks with improved converge characteristics have been reported in [5] which is passed on polynomial equation on forward process and backward ladder equation for each branch of RDS. In first part of this paper load flow algorithm proposed, in this algorithm voltage at each node is calculated by using a simple recursive equation. And required minimum data preparation compared to other methods. The proposed method is tested on several systems and result is show for the two systems (33- node, 28-node). The second part of this paper presents a simple voltage stability index that will predict the node which is more sensitive to voltage collapse. The modern power distribution network is constantly being faced with an ever growing load demand. Distribution networks experiences distinct changes from a low to high load level every day. When a power system approaches the voltage stability limit, the voltage of some buses reduces rapidly for small increment in load and the controls or operators may not be able to prevent the voltage decay. In some cases, the response of controls or operators may aggravate the situation and the ultimate result is voltage collapse. The problem of voltage stability & voltage collapse have increased because of the increased loading, exploitation and improved optimization operation of power transmission system. The problem of voltage collapse is the inability of power system to supply the reactive power or by an excessive absorption of reactive power by the system itself. Thus the voltage collapse is a reactive problem and it is strongly affected by the load behaviour. Voltage collapse has become an increasing threat to power system security and reliability. One of the serious consequences of voltage stability problem is a system blackout. A fast method for finding the maximum load, especially the reactive power demand, at a particular bus through theveninâ€™s equivalent circuit before reaching the voltage stability limit is developed in (8) for general power system. Voltage instability in power network is a phenomenon of highly non-linear nature posing operational as well as prediction problem in power system control. The voltage instability is a local phenomenon in which variable and network parameters contain sufficient information to assess proximity to instability. Hence a direct analytical approach to voltage instability assessment for radial network is presented in (9). Voltage collapse is characterized by slow variations in system operating point due to increase in loads in such a way that the voltage magnitude gradually decreases until a sharp accelerated change occurs. The effectiveness of three simple voltage stability indices also compared in (10) provides information about the proximity of voltage instability of a power system. This paper presents the effect on VSI and voltage collapse point with increase of active power, reactive power and both active & reactive power. The results for 33-node system & 28 node system with magnitude of voltage, VSI, effect on VSI are shown along with their graphs.

The equation 4 is in form of

ax 2 + bx + c = 0

. To guarantee that 3 is solvable, the following

inequality constraint should be satisfied i.e.,

V1 4 − 4 V1

With the increase of receiving end power demand, the left hand side of equation 4 approaches zero, and the two bus network reaches its maximum power transfer limit. So the voltage stability index is

VSI = V14 − 4 V1
