Contingency Analysis Based on Partitioned and Parallel Holomorphic Embedding

04/07/2021 ∙ by Rui Yao, et al. ∙ 0

In the steady-state contingency analysis, the traditional Newton-Raphson method suffers from non-convergence issues when solving post-outage power flow problems, which hinders the integrity and accuracy of security assessment. In this paper, we propose a novel robust contingency analysis approach based on holomorphic embedding (HE). The HE-based simulator guarantees convergence if the true power flow solution exists, which is desirable because it avoids the influence of numerical issues and provides a credible security assessment conclusion. In addition, based on the multi-area characteristics of real-world power systems, a partitioned HE (PHE) method is proposed with an interface-based partitioning of HE formulation. The PHE method does not undermine the numerical robustness of HE and significantly reduces the computation burden in large-scale contingency analysis. The PHE method is further enhanced by parallel or distributed computation to become parallel PHE (P^2HE). Tests on a 458-bus system, a synthetic 419-bus system and a large-scale 21447-bus system demonstrate the advantages of the proposed methods in robustness and efficiency.
