Summary

In this chapter, we discuss the design methodology and applications of parallel and distributed load flow algorithms for transmission system. We also discuss the methodology for the design of parallel and distributed load flow algorithms and analyze the convergence properties of these algorithms. We begin with the design of a parallel load flow algorithm, and then consider the unpredictability of communication time delay in a distributed load flow algorithm design. Theoretically, a parallel load flow algorithm should have the same convergence property as its serial counterpart, so the convergence analysis and mathematical proofs of the distributed loan flow algorithm is discussed here. The simulation methods for a distributed computation of an ISO/RTO and its satellite control centers will also be discussed.
