Abstract

Abstract This paper presents an analysis by computer simulation of the voltage effect on the energy consumption of distribution systems. The load energy models are included in the program so that the energy demand of each transformer can be represented more realistically and more accurately than the constant P and Q as used in the conventional load flow program. Three distribution feeders in the Taipower system were selected to represent the typical residential, industrial and agricultural areas respectively and the effect of voltage reduction on the energy consumption of each feeder was solved by the computer simulation. The results show that energy savings can be achieved by voltage reduction of distribution systems.
