Contingency Analysis and Ranking of Kurdistan Region Power System Using Voltage Performance Index
In this paper, analysis and ranking of single contingency due to the outage of transmission lines for a large scale power system of the Kurdistan Region (KR) are presented. Power System Simulator software (PSS®E33) is used to simulate the Kurdistan Region power system network and perform the contingency analysis for single line outage. This analysis is essential in order to predict and evaluate the voltage stability in case of contingency occurrence to know the most severe case and plan for managing it. All possible transmission line outages of the network are tested individually. After each branch disconnects, load flow analysis are applied by using Newton Raphson method then all bus voltages are recorded, and compared with them before the contingency. Voltage performance index is calculated for all possible contingencies to rank them according to their severity and determine the most severe contingency which is corresponding to the highest value of performance index. Also, the contingencies which cause load loss and amount of this load are observed.
