Abstract

Existing power systems are significantly susceptible to voltage instability problem since such systems are stressed with the huge power transfers across the grids. Various power tracing techniques have been developed but are limited to the application of transmission service pricing in a deregulated environment. This paper presents a novel approach which adopts the power tracing theory for voltage stability improvement via the development of reactive power tracing capable index, named as LQP_LT. The index is tested in IEEE 14 Test Bus System in various contingency states and comparison were made using the results obtained from the industrial graded software PSS/E in evaluating the critical transmission lines in severe contingencies. The LQP_LT index is found to be effective in determining the weak load buses in a transmission system which ultimately responsible to cause stressed lines and overall voltage instability in a system.
