Comparison of Newton Raphson and Gauss Seidal Methods for Load Flow Analysis
Keywords:Gauss-Seidal, Newton Raphson, fast decoupling load flow, Jacobian matrices
Various techniques are used all across the world to overcome the potential flow issues. Up till now techniques like Gauss-Seidel, Newton Raphson, as well as fast-decoupling load flow are preeminently used for the analysis of the load flow. The incorruptible relationship among the Gauss-Seidel and the Newton Raphson strategies for the load flow analysis of the four bus framework is discussed in the article. The choice of the slack bus has a vital role in the load flow analysis of the buses. The convergence pattern is also disturbed with the variations in the slack bus. Gauss-Seidel is understandable at a miner frame while the Newton-Raphson method due to the heavy calculation of Jacobian matrices is not easily understandable.
