Application of artificial neural networks for external network equivalent modeling
Keywords:External Network Equivalent, Load Flow Analysis, Artificial Neural Network
In this paper an artificial neural network (ANN) based methodology is proposed for determining an external network equivalent. The modified Newton-Raphson method with constant interchange of total active power between internal and external system is used for solving the load flow problem. A multilayer perceptron (MLP) with backpropagation training algorithm is applied for external network determination. The proposed methodology was tested with the IEEE 24-bus test network and simulation results show a very good performance of the ANN for external network modeling.
