Do you know where your grid is being used at maximum load?
Load Flow, also known as Power Flow, is the electrical engineering discipline concerned with determining currents in an installation. Many industrial installations are too large to allow calculating Load Flow values by hand. Therefore, these are simulated. However, simulation is not just modeling, there is skill involved, too. If wrong data is entered, wrong data will come out.
The advantages of Load Flow simulation
More and more installations, such as solar panels, car charging stations or smart lighting, contain elements that vary with time. To properly predict the influence of extensions and changes to the installation, a Load Flow simulation can be used.
A Load Flow analysis is also ideal for simulating emergency operation. It might also detect errors in the installation, which would otherwise only come to light if in the event of an actual emergency.
HyTEPS is able to simulate single-phase, three-phase as well as DC bus installations.
Load Flow simulation by HyTEPS
HyTEPS has been an expert in Power Quality for over 10 years. The acquired knowledge and experience with distribution and industrial grids, in the onshore as well as the offshore industry, provides a solid basis for analysis of your installation. Load Flow is a suitable tool for this. However, the interpretation of the simulation results is just as important as the correct simulation. HyTEPS will, therefore, support you in drawing conclusions based on the results. We help find a suitable solution to every problem.
Load Flow simulation is the first step
If your installation is modeled on a single line diagram and the model corresponds with reality, this is a good starting point for further investigation and simulations, such as arc flash calculations and harmonic Load Flow simulations. Problems can be predicted and costs can be better estimated.
