It will be covered in all power system texts since about 1970. Basic courses
in power system analysis will also cover it. However, you won't get the
necessary expertise from reading a text.
It is a method of solving for the the power flows and voltages in a power
system given the various loads and generator powers/voltages. It boils down
to the solution of a large number (sometimes several thousand) simultaneous
non-linear equations. I won't attempt to give the form of the equations or
the solution techniques in an e-mail. Efficient computer programs are
available for this- given the program and the data- the idiot box does the
However, the engineering judgement/experience comes into play when
interpreting the results and deciding what adjustments must be made to the
generation powers and voltages to improve overall system performance. This
does require experience which will not be found in the books.
You do not say what your background or the nature of the job. That might
remove the urine to answer
Actually I have a EE but never worked as an engineer.
Only in as technicians in electronics and telecomm.
Early 40's now and that won't help my chances.
A job I'm interested in was asking for power flow exper.
D> > Yes. Load flow.
