3. Calculate the reactive power required from the capacitor

The reactive power required from the capacitor is simply the negative of the total reactive power
from part 2. This way the load power factor becomes unity and the feeder apparent power has
only a real component. The new power triangle looks as follow:

4. Explain the benefits of having unity power factor from (i) the utility point of view and
(ii) the customer's point of view.
The utility benefits from unity power factor since in this way the reactive power flows on the
line become zero. Although this doesn't directly contribute to losses, reactive power flows
contribute to increased currents and the associated losses involved. In addition, the
increased current may also play a role in reducing the lifespan of the lines and other
equipment. Also, providing reactive compensation at the load can help to improve voltage
stability

In terms of the customer, unity power factor is desirable since it indirectly affects the power
quality through the regulation of the voltage. Large inductive loads can cause undervoltages
which can be undesirable for sensitive loads. Also, the customer will likely inherit some of
the cost due to the losses mentioned above and therefore saving from the point of view of the
utility also result in savings for the customer as well.
QUESTION 2 (18 points)
A single phase 24 kV/2.4 kV, 60 Hz transformer, with a series equivalent impedance of 0.2 +
j1.0 Ω referred to the low-voltage side, is connected at the end of a transmission line of
impedance 50 + j400 . The transformer feeds a load drawing 200 kW, at a 0.8 power factor
lagging, and 2300 V.

1. The feeder voltage is adjusted so that the load voltage is 2300 V. Assume the load voltage
has an angle of 0 deg. Find the amplitude and angle of the voltage at the sending end of the
transmission line. (Hint: refer all quantities to the low voltage side).
2. Compute the current in the transmission line, the losses in the transmission line and
transformer, and the overall system efficiency.
3. Calculate the no-load voltage and the voltage regulation.
4. Explain how the voltage regulation can be reduced. (Hint: consider shunt compensation).

2 3
Transformer Ptrans := mag( Iline_low) ⋅ Re( Ztrans) Ptrans = 2.363 × 10

Eff := ⋅ 100 Eff = 96.029

3. No-load voltage and voltage regulation

Since the line contains no shunt components the no-load voltage will equal the
magnitude of the source voltage.

VR := ⋅ 100

4. Improvement of Voltage Regulation

The receiving end voltage varies as a function of the current on line which is dependent on the
load connected. We can compensate for the change in voltage by adding shunt
compensation at the load. In this way the voltage can be regulated to a given reference, say
1 pu. In this way the receiving end voltage may change by only a very small amount between
no-load an full-load. Therefore, a decrease in the VR is possible which will depend on the
rating of the reactive power source, in the case where the rating of the compensation is
infinite the voltage regulation becomes 0%.

VR will also depends upon the impedance of the line and therefore, series compensation or
installation of a parallel line could also help to limit VR.
QUESTION 3 (18 points)
A three-phase feeder supplies three identical single-phase 135 kV / 6.9 kV, 60 Hz, 100 MVA
transformers, each with a leakage reactance of 0.15 pu on the transformer base, and connected
in a -Y connection. The load is a three-phase Y-connected 12 kV load, with per phase
parameters of 60 MW, 0.85 power factor (lagging). A capacitor bank of three elements of
impedance (-j 5 ) connected in ∆ is used for power factor correction. The secondary voltage is
assumed to be 12 kV.
1. Compute the total power and total reactive power drawn from the feeder.
2. Draw the single line pu circuit, using a 300 MVA (three-phase), 12 kV base.
3. Compute the total line current, the total power and total reactive power drawn from the feeder,
in pu. Compute the voltage at the feeder. Compare with results in (1).
4. Phase c of the load becomes an open circuit. In the original V-A three-phase circuit,
compute the current in the lines feeding the load, when (i) the load neutral is solidly

4. Currents in the line feeding the load with phase c open circuited
(i) neutral is solidly grounded
We simply refer to the below figure and solve the two loop equations, we disregard the
capacitors since we are interested only in the current feeding the load.

In this case, the problem is trivial since I 0 = 0, since there is no path for zero sequence
current. Therefore, we can say that Ia = -Ib and the circuit looks as follows:

(d) Approximate voltage profile for 0 MW, 20 MW, 50 MW, and SIL (49.7 MW)

It is possible to keep the receiving end voltage between 0.95 and 1.05 using shunt
compensation in the form of switched capacitors or inductors. Static compensators which
are more elegant can be used as well which provide for better adjustment of the reactive
power injected or consumed, and can respond much quicker. Examples include Static var
compensators (SVCs) and static shunt compensators (STATCOM).
QUESTION 5 (18 points)
A two-bus transmission system consists of the following: (i) a voltage regulated bus (1.0
pu), the swing bus; (ii) a load bus, with a load of power (0.3 + j1.0), and a fixed capacitor,
supplying a reactive power of (j1.1); (iii) a transmission line of impedance (j0.4).

V2 (k+1) = 1/Y22 [ (P2 - jQ 2 )/V 2 - Y21*V1 (k) ]

The unknowns are the voltage and angle at bus 2. Once the solution has converged we are
able to obtain the unknown flows which are the real and reactive power at bus 1.
So, we calculate the first iteration assuming a flat voltage profile as our initial guess.

Newton Raphson is more well suited to solve the load flow equations since it is more often
used to solve non-linear equations while Gauss-Siedel is more well suited for solving linear
equations. Methods to improve speed of convergence are to use fast-decoupled load flow
where the Jacobian is only calculated once, and only inverted once as well. Sparse matrices
methods are also implemented for larger systems. If bus 2 becomes a PV bus, the
formulation is changed slightly in that x becomes the angle δ2 and whereas y becomes the
known flow P2. In Gauss-Siedel we iterate w.r.t Q 2 and not V 2

QUESTION 7 (18 points)
A three-phase. 60 Hz, round rotor hydroelectric generator has an H constant of 5 s. It
delivers Pm = 1.0 pu power at a power factor of 0.90 lagging to an infinite bus through a
transmission line of reactance X = 0.6. The voltage at the infinite bus is 1.0 pu with an
angle of 0 deg. The machine transient reactance X'd = 0.3 pu.
(a) Compute the transient machine internal voltage and angle . Give the corresponding
equation for the electric power.
(b) Write the pu swing equation. A three-phase bolted short occurs midway along the
transmission line. Determine the power angle 4 cycles after the initiation of the short
circuit. Assume the mechanical input power remains constant at the initial value.
(c) Draw the P- curve for the above operating conditions. Indicate the initial conditions,
and the fault clearing point. Explain the application of the equal area criterion to this
case.
(d) Discuss methods to ensure that the machine does not loose synchronism (breaker
operation, series compensation, …)

We calculate A1 using the swing equation and the fault duration to determine the angle at which
the fault is cleared, δ1 . The machine continues to accelerate until A2 = A1. We can determine
whether the machine retains stability determining whether there in fact does exist and angle δ2 for
which A2 does in fact equal A1. Following the above calculations we see that this is true for
approximately 122 degrees, and therefore stability is maintained.
(d) Discuss methods to maintain stability

There exist various methods to help maintain stability. Many of the most common are listed
here:

• Smaller equivalent line impedance (parallel lines, different conductors, smaller transformer
leakage reactances, series compensation...)
• Higher voltages
• FACTS devices
• Faster clearing of faults
• Larger machine inertia
