Power Generation Balancing in Constrained Deregulated Power Systems Using LBF

Venkata Prasanth (UNT, USA)

Power systems are currently being transformed to become deregulated and generating stations are enhanced with fuel sources other than coal such as hydro. When such fuel sources are introduced, the quantity of the power generated is maintained as constant irrespective of demand. In this paper we consider the power loss as generators are not following the optimum operating regulations of the system. If the load on the bus is not maintained the electrical potential magnitude increases. We present the operation of a power system in deregulated condition with and without load bus to keep the electrical potential magnitude constant by the constrained power flow. By using Loss Balancing Factor, LBF, electrical power loss is assigned to the generators. After assigning the electrical power loss to the generators, it is observed that the burden on the generators and hence the loss also decreased in the constrained deregulated power system. The proposed analysis is tested on IEEE-14 bus system and analytical observations are presented. The system is run for 24 hours and the results are analyzed.
