Comparison & Simulative Analysis of Low Voltage Distribution System (LVDS) with High Voltage Distribution System (HVDS) Towards Performance Enhancement
Keywords:LV System, HV System, THD, Renewable Energy Resources
An electric power distribution system is the last stage in the delivery of electric power; it carries electricity from the transmission system to individual consumers. Distribution substations connect to the transmission system and step down the transmission voltage to medium voltage. The work is focused on bringing about the comparative analysis on the outcomes at the load points in the low voltage distribution system and the high voltage distribution system. The results concluded enhancement in the quality issues associated with the low voltage distribution system while designing of the High voltage distribution system. The losses in the voltage and current profile were reduced to bring about enhancement in the power availability in the loading points by 3 %. To further analyze the performance of HV distribution system with renewable energy resources the hybrid system of solar and wind generation systems were developed and then were integrated with the LV system first and then with the HV system. The study again concluded improvement in the power by 2.7% reducing the losses in the voltage and current profiles. The HV system loading was also identified to reduce the effects on the 11KV high voltage distribution line. Thus it can be inferred from the study that Implementation of high voltage distribution system (HVDS) for consumers will result in reduction in losses, increase in energy saving and improve voltage profile. The adoption of HVDS makes the system more reliable and thus, reduces the number of outages. The chances of unauthorized connections and theft of energy are reduced.The restructuring of existing low voltage distribution system (LVDS) as HVDS presents one of the best technically feasible and financially viable method for providing reliable and quality supply to consumers.
