The Power Flow module software is the power flow analysis module of the CYME power engineering software for the analysis of three-phase electric power networks. It is equipped with powerful analytical options and alternative solution techniques.
The objective of a power flow program is to analyze the steady-state performance of the power system under various operating conditions. It is the basic analysis tool for the planning, design and operation of any electrical power systems, be they distribution, industrial or transmission networks.
The Power Flow module utilizes state-of-the-art sparse matrix/vector methods and multiple solution algorithms:
- Full Newton-Raphson
- Fast Decoupled
The program is the main module of the CYME software for the analysis of industrial and transmission power systems, and it has a seamless interface with other modules such as:
- Fault Analyses module, for fault studies taking into account pre-fault system loading
- Harmonic Analysis module, for the calculation of the fundamental frequency voltage and current profiles required for harmonic distortion indices calculations
- Transient Stability Analysis module, to set the initial condition of the system as required by the network control models for transient stability studies
- Dynamic Motor Starting module, to account for system wide voltage drops during induction and synchronous motor starting studies
