Investigation of Impact of Contingencies on Power Plant and Transmission Lines



Contingency analysis are widely applied to predict the effect of outages in power systems, like tripping of equipment in power plants and transmission lines. Using off line analysis to predict the effect of individual contingency is a tedious task on power system containing large number of components. Practically, only selected contingencies will lead to severe conditions in power system, like violation of voltage and active power flow limits. Simultaneously, the value of active power flow before and after severe transmission and power plant contingencies was analysed using Genetic Eigenvalue Analysis Technique. This was achieved by simulating the Simulink of Nigerian 330KV 48 bus power system using m-file programme in MATLAB environment.The result of the simulation for the power flow solution for transmission line outage contingencies shows that the voltage trajectory at bus 11 stood at 0.3934 p.u, at bus 15 is0.4986 p.u, and bus of 23 is 0.4647 p.u while for the contingencies on power plant, there voltage trajectories stood at 0.2342 p.u for bus 11, 0.3987 p.u for bus 23. The result shows that the impact on power plant is higher than that of transmission line by 40%, 20%, 14%for sampled buses 11, 15, and 23 respectively.
