Using Load Flow analysis to model renewable energy scenarios


Following from my first three months (discussed here), I continued into my second quarter, remaining with National Grid, and continuing to gain experience in renewable energy generation.

During this term, I have been able to gain an insight into the “Power Factory” analysis package for which loadflow results are to be used to facilitate the evaluation of the wide range of possible generation scenarios on required transmission capacity in the Great Britain network.

As part of the Power Factory work, I have obtained some experience in modelling the Great Britain network with the appropriate generation and demand scenarios in preparation to obtain more detailed results from voltage and transient stability analyses.

To learn more of my experiences, I’d invite you to read my 2nd Quarterly Report (PDF) here.

Again, I’d welcome constructive feedback.
