Studying Voltage Stability in Power System Considering Load Dynamics


This paper investigates on-load tap changer OLTC effect on voltage stability. Chaos theory used in this analysis is via the calculation of the maximum power transmission. Resulted chaotic behavior is exhibited by singular induced bifurcation which clearly shows the voltage stability of the power system with OLTC from a singular induced bifurcation point of view. The paper is organized as follows: 1) increasing in the maximum reactive power via increasing the ratio of OLTC and the possibility of voltage collapse decrease under the same load command. 2) Noting that the voltage instability is directly affected by the load characteristics, shown via the effect of OLTC on the voltage instability under different static load models. 3) Studying voltage stability in state space and the effects of the generator excitation current limit, the OLTC and load dynamics on voltage collapse. In addition, a small-disturbance voltage stability region of a power system is constructed. The voltage stability of the system is determined by the dynamic characteristics of both the OLTC and the load.
