Presentation outline
•
The penetration of distributed generations (DG)
and distributed storage (DS), together known as
distributed energy resources DERs, changes
conventional distributions systems to active
distribution systems (ADS.
•
To operate ADS efficiently, they need to have the
ability to monitor many states and variables of
the network.
•
The Smart grid concept via the continuing
technological development and improvement in
communication technology, control devices and
instrumentations will provide the facilities.
INTRODUCTION
•
One of the important requirements for the ADS
planning, operation and control, is an accurate
steady

state analysis, such as power flow and
fault analysis.
•
The conventional power

flow analysis methods,
that are widely used for large power transmission
systems are based on the system positive

sequence representation.
•
These methods are deemed to be inaccurate for
unbalanced networks with single

phase laterals,
single and two

phase loads, centre tapped
transformer loads and unbalanced three

phase
loads as well as single

phase and three

phase
DERs.
INTRODUCTION
•
Many unbalanced system studies are analyzed based
on detailed three

phase network representation.
•
Three

phase power

flow methods that are
formulated based on phase components include two
categories.
•
Firstly, methods consider primarily the radial
structure of distribution networks.
•
Secondly, the method based on Newton

Raphson
technique has been applied for general network
structures.
•
In contrast to the general network structure
problem, the forward

backward sweep method, and
the compensation method solves for load flow
analysis of the system radial feeders and weakly
meshed grids methods based on the phase frame
approach.
Depending
on
reference's
frames,
the
three

phase
power
flow
formulation
can
be
modelled
using
phase
component
approach
and
sequence
component
approach
.

can
solve

of

system,
radial
and

systems
.
It,
however,
cannot
account
for
multi

phase
laterals
.
The
forward/backward
is
used
in
handling

.
This
method
will

its
computational
advantage
when
dealing
with

of

INTRODUCTION
The
focus
of
this
paper
is
to
develop
a
symmetrical

for
a
general

can
be
used
to

Synchronous Generation Based WTG Model
By knowing of injected power and voltage magnitude at a generator bus, the
WTG can be modelled as voltage controlled device. If the Q limit is used, the
PV model will be automatically converted to a PQ model.

Once the sequence networks have been determined,
computation of the unbalanced faults which have been well
Established can be applied.
In fact, any unbalanced fault analysis commercial software
can use the models proposed to analyse any three phase
unbalanced networks with multi

phase feeders.

The proposed algorithm can be
extended for solving repetitive
applications in power system
analysis such as fault analysis with
contingency assessments and three

phase harmonic power flow study.
The speedup advantage from parallel
programming can be significant in
larger
