Objectives
Title: Modelling of Simple Power System in SimPower Systems
Power flow study refers to as the arithmetical analysis of the flow of electric power in a power system. The core facets of the power system under investigation include the ac power parameters such as voltage phase angle and voltage magnitudes, real and reactive power flow and effects of errors on those parameters elements (Karris & Karris 2009, p.25). This study plays a vital role in deducing the best operational point of the system and in development of the future expansion of a grid system. Per-unit system and one-line diagram codes help to simplify the study. Simpower systems is one of the toolboxes in mat-lab and comes in handy in power flow study. In this lab assignment, we are required to perform power flow analysis of a simple power system in simpower sytem.
- To determine the type of bus
- To develop a model of a simple power system using SimPower Systems toolbox and perform load flow studies of the system as shown in below.

- Conversion of transmission line impedance data in SI units.
- Calculation of resistance and inductance of each of the transmission line in SI unit and tabulation.

The types of buses in power system are as follows;
Bus 1-Swing bus
Bus 2-Generator bus
Bus 3-Generator bus
Bus 4-Generator bus
To convert the pu unit values of the system the following formulas are applied:
P_{base}=Q_{base}=S_{base}=100 MVA
P_{act}= S_{base}* P_{pu} Q_{act}= S_{base}* Q_{pu} .................................equation 1
The actual power values are as shown in table 1 below:

Determination of the resistances and inductances of the transmission lines.
From the information given that the transmission lines are lossless therefore their resistances are zero. The inductances of the lines can determined from the reactance as follows:
X=2*∏*f*L
Therefore:
The inductances were tabulated as shown below:

It was deduced that bus 1supplied reactive power to all the other three buses to meet their demands and the losses of the transmission lines. Bus 1 also supplied real power to bus 3 and 4 while receiving real power from bus 2. Bus 2 supplied both reactive and real power to bus 1 and bus 3. Bus 3 received real power from bus 1 and bus 2 while supplying reactive power to bus 4. In addition, bus 3 supplied reactive power to the other buses. Bus 4 received real power from bus 1 and bus 3 while supplying reactive power to the two buses. The actual amount of the power supplied and received from the buses are given the report generated from simpower system model.
Finally, the system maintained a flat voltage profile. The voltage magnitude was maintained at 1 pu/15 kv across all the buses. However the phase angles of the voltages varied in each bus. The phase angle of the voltages in bus 1, bus 2, bus 3 and bus 4 were 0^{0}, 12.82^{0},-1.78^{0} and -7.61^{0}. The angles variations depicted the direction of flow of both reactive and real power.
Conclusion
From the load analysis we can conclude that the power was balanced throughout the power system. The total generation of the power system was 648.4 MVA with a total losses of 122.78 MVAR due to inductances of the transmission line.
