Power Analysis for a Limited Bus Grid System with Distribution Generators


Nader Barsoum

It has been recognized recently that when injecting renewable energy source power to a load buses which connected to some distributed feeders in a power grid system, a stability problem occurs particularly when having high fault duties that exceeding the circuit breaker ratings at some substations. In this paper an analysis of power flow, short circuit, stability and protection are given in detail to an example of limited 7-bus power grid system. Comparison are illustrated between power grid with and without distributed generators regarding bus voltages, fault currents, critical power angles, selected current transformers and over current relay settings in each bus. It discusses the selection of optimum slack bus in Gauss Seidel method, and shows that the system with distributed generators is more stable although the fault currents are higher than the system without distributed generators.
