    "Tracing the power flow of electricity" is a concept that has become the focus of attention recently, as the deregulation or the liberalization of the electric power market proceeds. Although a number of methods, such as "tracing method by power flow contribution," have already been published, reactive power contribution has been little studied to date. However, applying "tracing the power flow of electricity" to ancillary service, for example compensation of reactive power, is very important. In this paper, we focus on line flows and static capacitors in particular, and study how to deal with the problem. We perform a computer simulation using a simple system and show the tracing results.
