Power flows and voltage profiles in power transmission systems for power system planning are going to present in this seminar. Model formation and simulation of a southern transmission network for power flow control are presented in this work. Power flow correctional devices such as Variable Shunt Reactors (VSR) and On Load Tap Changers (OLTC) play an important role in the power flow control and voltage profile improvement. The suitability and application of VSR and OLTC to control the power flows and regulate the 220 kV and 400 kV voltage levels of the substations inside the grid are presented in detail. Power Loss improvement as a result of the application of VSR and OLTC study is discussed. The simulation results are validated in Dig-SILENT Power Factory for the year 2015 and 2020 data.
