Assignment 1 

Assignment PART A

The one-line diagram of a three-phase power system in Figure 1has the following data:

Transformer: 100 MVA, 23/115 kV, X=0.2 Transmission line: 0+j66.125 Ω

Load at bus 2: S2=184.8+j6.6 MVA Load at bus 2: S3=0+j20 MVA

It is required to hold the voltage at bus 3 at 115 kV. Working in per-unit, determine the voltage at buses 2 and 1. Use a base of 100 MVA and neglect the transformer resistance, and phase shift
