A power system is the interconnection between generation and distribution of electricity; it undergoes wide and complex analytical studies for the sake of optimizing the consumption of electrical energy. Reactive power planning is adopted in power system analysis in order to maintain the optimum reactive power and voltage levels needed for better performance and consumption at different nodes of the previously planned One-Line Diagram. For this purpose, capacitor banks, Under Load Tap Changing (ULTC) transformers and other controllers are set and allocated at their proper sites. When reactive power is required to be added or eliminated at specific location in the power system, this fault specification has to be allocated and fixed within a minimum time and cost. Nowadays, with the advance of technology and the big effort that scientists in this field are exerting, faster and more reliable solutions are given especially with the aid of developing computer programs in this domain. Hence, this report discusses several electric power network concerns that are summarized in the chapters: Literature reviews on Reactive Power Planning (RPP), power system modeling, power system planning, power flow problem, optimal power flow, and finally the implementation chapter.
Includes bibliographical references (p.81-82).
