Abstract

In electrical power systems, saddle node bifurcation (SNB) is the voltage stability margin at which voltage collapse takes place. It plays an important role in power system planning and operation as economic and environmental pressures force to operate always closer to the limit of stability. Voltage collapse is associated with the reactive power demands not being met because of limitations in the generation and transmission of reactive power. Determination of the SNB point greatly assists planning and operation of power system. Among various voltage stability analysis (VSA) methods, this paper specifies the continuation power flow (CPF) method as it accurately identifies the SNB point and the critical or the weaker bus. In this paper, power system of Sri Lanka is assessed for diverse applications of VSA by concerning about single element outage or (N-1) criterion and the role of voltage compensation devices. Furthermore, the optimum at the SNB point is verified by eigenvalue analysis.
