Load Flow and Y Bus

Formation of Bus Admittance Matrix (Ybus)

load flow and y bus S1, S2, S3 are net complex power injections into bus 1, 2, 3 respectively y12, y23, y13 are line admittances between lines 1-2, 2-3, 1-3 y01sh/2, y02sh/2, y03sh/2 are half-line charging admittance between lines 1-2, 1-3 and 2-3

The half-line charging admittances connected to the same bus are at same potential and thus can be combined into one load flow and y bus

Some observations on YBUS matrix:

  1. YBUS is a sparse matrix
  2. Diagonal elements are dominating
  3. Off diagonal elements are symmetric
  4. The diagonal element of each node is the sum of the admittances connected to it
  5. The off diagonal element is negated admittance

Development of Load Flow Equations

The net complex power injection at bus i is given by: Taking conjugate Substituting the value of Ii in equation (2) To derive the static load flow equation in polar form in equation (4) substitute On substitution of the above values equation (4) becomes In equation (5) on multiplication of the terms angles get added. Let’s denote for convenience Therefore equation (5) becomes Expansion of equation (6) into sine and cosine terms gives Equating real and imaginary parts we get Equations (7) and (8) are the static load flow equations in polar form. The above obtained equations are non-linear algebraic equations and can be solved using iterative numerical algorithms. Similarly to obtain load flow equations in rectangular form in equation (4) substitute On substituting above values into equation (4) and equating real and imaginary parts we get Equations (9) and (10) are static load flow equations in rectangular form.
