New Electric Power Study Results from Poznan University of Technology Described (Determining location of voltage fluctuation source in radial power grid)

Energy Daily News

2020 MAR 24 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Daily News -- New research on Energy - Electric Power is the subject of a report. According to news reporting originating in Poznan, Poland, by NewsRx editors, the research stated, “The effects of voltage fluctuation are a common reason for complaints about low power quality. Voltage fluctuations in power grids are usually caused by changes in states of loads.”

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the Poznan University of Technology, “In order to counteract this problem, it is required to determine the location of the source of voltage fluctuations as well as their parameters. The paper presents examples of locating disturbance loads which cause symmetric and asymmetric voltage fluctuation in LV radial power grid. In the process, the results of voltage fluctuation indices’ measurements have been used. The results of location process have been used to describe the propagation of voltage fluctuation in an example power grid.”

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: “In addition, the current variation which causes the observed voltage fluctuation has also been determined.”
