Let’s understand the concept of per unit system by solving an example. In the one-line diagram below, the impedance of various

components in a power system, typically derived from their nameplates, are presented. The task now is to normalize these values using a

common base.

Now that you have carefully examined the system and its parameters, the equivalent impedance diagram for the above system would

Resistive impedance for most components have been ignored. Rotating machines have been replaced with a voltage source behind their

internal reactance. Capacitive effects between lines and to ground are ignored as well.

To obtain the new normalized per unit impedances, first we need to figure out the base values (Sbase, Vbase, Zbase) in the power

Assume a system wide of 100MVA. This is a random assumption and chosen to make calculations easy when calculating the

So, = 100MVA

Voltage base in the system is determined by the transformer. For example, with a 22/220kV voltage rating of T1 transformer,

the on the primary side of T1 is 22kV while the secondary side is 220kV. It does not matter what the voltage rating of the

The base impedance is calculated using the following formula:

Ohms…………………………………………………………………..(1)

For T-Line 1: = 484 Ohms

The per unit impedance is calculated using the following formulas:

……………………………………………………………………………..(2)

……………………………….(3)

The voltage ratio in equation (3) is not equivalent to transformers voltage ratio. It is the ratio of the transformer’s voltage rating on the

primary or secondary side to the system nominal voltage on the same side.

Power Factor:

Thus,

= 1.1495+j1.53267 Ohms

For generator, the new per unit reactance using equation (3)

= 0.2 pu

The equivalent impedance network with all the impedances normalized to a common system base and the appropriate voltage base is

provided below.

Summary:

1. Assume a Sbase for the entire system.

2. The Vbase is defined by the transformer and any off-nominal tap setting it may have.

4. The new per unit impedance is obtained by converting the old per unit impedance on old base values to new ones. See equations

Calculation Procedure

1. Identify the Appropriate Symbols

For electric power networks an appropriate selection of graphic symbols is shown in Figure 1 (common power

symbols used in single line diagrams):

2. Draw the Required System

The system described in the problem is shown in Figure 2. The oil circuit breakers are added at the appropriate

points for proper isolation of equipment.

Related Calculations

It is the general procedure to use single line diagrams for representing three-phase systems. When analysis is done

using symmetrical components, different diagrams may be drawn that will represent the electric circuitry for positive,

negative, and zero-sequence components.

Additionally, it is often necessary to identify the grounding connection, or whether the device is wye- or delta-

connected.

Figure 3 – Identification for wye-connected generator or motor. (a) Solidly grounded. (b) Grounded through an

inductance. (c) The transformer is identified as being delta-wye, with the wye side solidly grounded.

For the system shown in Figure 4, draw the electric circuit or reactance diagram, with all reactances marked in

per-unit (p.u.) values, and find the generator terminal voltage assuming both motors operating at 12 kV, three-

quarters load, and unity power factor.

1. Establish Base Voltage through the System

By observation of the magnitude of the components in the system, a base value of apparent power S is chosen. It

should be of the general magnitude of the components, and the choice is arbitrary. In this problem, 25,000 kVA is

chosen as the base S, and simultaneously, at the generator end 13.8 kV is selected as a base voltage V base.

The base voltage of the transmission line is then determined by the turns ratio of the connecting transformer:

(13.8 kV)(69 kV / 13.2 kV) = 72.136 kV

The base voltage of the motors is determined likewise but with the 72.136 kV value, thus:

(72.136 kV)(13.2 kV / 69 kV) = 13.8 kV

The selected base S value remains constant throughout the system, but the base voltage is 13.8 kV at the

generator and at the motors, and 72.136 kV on the transmission line.

2. Calculate the Generator Reactance

No calculation is necessary for correcting the value of the generator reactance because it is given as 0.15 p.u. (15

percent), based on 25,000 kVA and 13.8 kV. If a different S base were used in this problem, then a correction

would be necessary as shown for the transmission line, electric motors, and power transformers.

It is necessary to make a correction when the transformer nameplate reactance is used because the calculated

operation is at a different voltage, 13.8 kV / 72.136 kV instead of 13.2 kV / 69 kV.

(0.11) (25,000/25,000) (13.2/13.8)2 = 0.101 p.u.

This applies to each transformer.

Use the equation:

Xper unit = (65) (25,000)/(1000)(72.1) 2 = 0.313 p.u.

Corrections need to be made in the nameplate ratings of both motors because of differences of ratings in kVA and

kV as compared with those selected for calculations in this problem. Use the correcting equation from Step 3,

above.

For motor A:

X”A = (0.15 p.u.) (25,000 kVA / 15,000 kVA) (13.0 kV / 13.8 kV) 2 = 0.222 p.u.

For motor B:

X”B = (0.15 p.u.)(25,000 kVA /10,000 kVA)(13.0 kV / 13.8 kV)2 = 0.333 p.u.

The completed reactance diagram is shown in Figure 5:

Figure 5 – Single line reactance circuit diagram (reactances shown on a per-unit basis)

If the motors are operating at 12 kV, this represents 12 kV/13.8 kV = 0.87 per-unit voltage. At unity power factor,

the load is given as three-quarters or 0.75 p.u.

Thus, expressed in per unit, the combined motor current is obtained by using the equation:

Iper unit = per-unit power/per-unit voltage = 0.75/0.87 = 0.862 ∠0° p.u.

The voltage at the generator terminals is:

VG = 0.87∠0° + 0.862 ∠0°(j0.101 + j0.313 + j0.101)

VG = 0.87 + j0.444 = 0.977 ∠27.03° p.u.

In order to obtain the actual voltage, multiply the per-unit voltage by the base voltage at the generator. Thus,

Related Calculations

In the solution of these problems, the selection of base voltage and apparent power are arbitrary. However, the

base voltage in each section of the circuit must be related in accordance with transformer turns ratios.

Zbase = (base kV)2 (1000) / (base kVA).

For the transmission line section in this problem, Z base = (72.136)2 (1000) / (25,000) = 208.1

Thus the per-unit reactance of the transmission line equals (actual ohms) / (base ohms) = 65 / 208.1 = 0.313 p.u.
