Homework Help: Labelling five-bus system power values

  1. Oct 12, 2014 #1
    • Posted without the homework template
    I'm having trouble determining what the values are on my Power Analysis diagrams. I get confused with active power, reactive power, and complex power.
    Can someone take a look at my attachment and tell me if I labeled the values correctly?
    I'm mainly curious as to if my Sg3 value is correct and if I can calculate Qg3 in the way that I have.
    And what does the 15kV, under the 800MVA, mean? How would I use that value when solving the power flow problem with Gauss-Seidel method, Newton-Ralphson method, or fast decouple method? image.jpeg

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    How can people check your work when the picture you attached has only part of the problem? Also, see the homework guidelines (https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/guidelines-for-students-and-helpers.686788/), especially 5 and 8.
