The Convergence Analysis of Parsing Algorithm in Power Flow


Article Preview

Power flow solution is one of the most important means of power system stability analysis. While parsing algorithm is the basis of power flow analysis. The idea of iteration is frequently used in power flow solution because of the characteristics of power system itself. Textbooks, however, use the gradual iterative thought without rigorous demonstration of the conditions for convergence. From the point of view of mathematical analysis, the article not only gives a proper way to determine the convergence or divergence of the power flow but also provide the exact solution of a simple power flow with an example to demonstrate the validity of the algorithm.
