The main objective of online power flow, or sometimes, other people called it “load flow”, simulator is to provide a free and accessible simulation tool for power engineering students. It is a good and reliable reference for load flow studies. It has been tested on various test systems in the know power engineering book of Saadat.
This simulator uses the Gauss Seidel Iterative Method. Unlike the classical implementation of power flow, which are usually implemented in c/c++ or other dynamic programming languages, this power flow simulator was implemented using PHP and MySQL. This is an online tool such that anyone can do the simulation anytime and anywhere in the world through the internet.
Currently, this simulator is at beta testing status for us to see the effect of its runtime on the server load. Thus, it has a capability to simulate only up to 5 buses, for the meantime. Currently, it does not considering the line limits and generator limits of the system.
