Monitoring & Load Flow Studies


“Basic load flow question is: Given the load power consumption at all buses of a known electrical power system configuration and the power production at each generator find the power flow in each line and transformer of the interconnecting network and the voltage magnitude and phase angle of each bus.”


Analyzing solutions for existing or possible problems in various conditions helps ensure that the power system is designed to satisfy its performance criteria while incurring the most favorable investment and operating cost.


Load studies determine:

              - Component or Circuit Loadings
              - Steady-State Bus Voltages
              - Reactive Power Flows
              - Transformer Tap Settings
              - System Losses
              - Generator Exciter / Regulator Voltage Set Points
              - Performance Under Emergency Conditions
