    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    “Tracing Power Flow of Electricity” is the concept that has become a focus of attention recently, as the deregulation or the liberalization of electric power markets proceeds. Although a number of methods, such as “Tracing Method by Power Flow Proportion”, have already been published, reactive power contribution has never studied much so far. However applying ‘Tracing Power Flow of Electricity’ to ancillary service, for example compensation of reactive power, it is very important. In this paper, we pay attention to line flows and static capacitors in particular, and we study how to deal with the problem. We do computer simulation using a sample system and show the tracing results.
