Asymmetric Load¶
Note
Loads should always have a positive p_mw value, since all power values are given in the consumer system. If you want to model constant generation, use a Static Generator (sgen element) instead of a negative load. With Asymmetric Load three phase load values can be supplied seperately

create_asymmetric_load
(net, bus, p_a_mw=0, p_b_mw=0, p_c_mw=0, q_a_mvar=0, q_b_mvar=0, q_c_mvar=0, sn_mva=nan, name=None, scaling=1.0, index=None, in_service=True, type='wye')¶ Adds one 3 phase load in table net[“asymmetric_load”].
All loads are modelled in the consumer system, meaning load is positive and generation is negative active power. Please pay attention to the correct signing of the reactive power as well.
 INPUT:
net  The net within this load should be created
bus (int)  The bus id to which the load is connected
 OPTIONAL:
p_a_mw (float, default 0)  The real power for Phase A load
p_b_mw (float, default 0)  The real power for Phase B load
p_c_mw (float, default 0)  The real power for Phase C load
 postive value > load
 negative value > generation
q_a_mvar float, default 0)  The reactive power for Phase A load
q_b_mvar float, default 0)  The reactive power for Phase B load
q_c_mvar (float, default 0)  The reactive power for Phase C load
sn_kva (float, default: None)  Nominal power of the load
name (string, default: None)  The name for this load
scaling (float, default: 1.)  An OPTIONAL scaling factor to be set customly
type (string,default: wye)  type variable to classify three ph load: delta/wye
index (int,default: None)  Force a specified ID if it is available. If None, the index one higher than the highest already existing index is selected.
in_service (boolean)  True for in_service or False for out of service
 OUTPUT:
 index (int)  The unique ID of the created element
 EXAMPLE:
 create_asymmetric_load(net, bus=0, p_c_mw = 9., q_c_mvar = 1.8)
Creates a single phase wye type load

Note
 The apparent power value sn_mva is provided as additional information for usage in controller or other applications based on panadapower. It is not considered in the power flow!
 ‘wye’ is the same as PHE loads
 For ‘delta’ loads lineearth voltages and powers are converted to lineline values
Electric Model¶
Loads are modelled as PQbuses in the power flow calculation.
Wye Load
Delta Load
Even though power values are entered as Lineground \(P_{a},Q_{a}\), for delta loads, Power values are actually lineline powers i.e. \(P_{ab},Q_{ab}\)
So, in the algorithm :
Lineground voltages \(V_{a}\) are converted to lineline voltages \(V_{ab}\). LineLine currents are then converted to Lineground currents \(I_{a}\).
\(I_{a}= T. \frac{S_{ab}}{(V_{an}V_{bn})}\)
\(I_{b}= T. \frac{S_{bc}}{(V_{bn}V_{cn})}\)
\(I_{c}= T. \frac{S_{ca}}{(V_{cn}V_{an})}\)
