In order to develop real time online load flow functionality, the project will concentrate on the following areas:

  • Literature search

  • Scoping of the Interactive Power System Analysis (IPSA) + engine

  • Establish model data required

  • Ensure that the network model used in the load flow is an exact representation of the network.

  • Development of the required data extraction interface

  • Consideration of the potential for future extension of the on line load flow concept for the LV network

  • Design of data storage requirement

  • Design of data storage for the load

  • Population and retrieval of static and dynamic data for use by the load flow engine

  • Design and development of validation filters

  • Testing and validating the results

  • Validation of convergence requirements.
The objective of this project is to develop and trial a real time online load flow functionality for ENWLs distribution network management system.
