General Load Model
1 General Description
In power systems, electrical load consists of various different types of electrical devices, from incandescent lamps and heaters to large arc furnaces and motors. It is often very difficult to identify the exact composition of static and dynamic loads in the network. This load composition can also vary depending on factors such as the season, time of day etc. Additionally, the term load can be used for entire MV-feeders in case of an HV-system or LV-feeders if an MVsystem is in the centre of interest. The PowerFactory model “General Load” can therefore represent: • • A complete feeder A combination of dynamic and static loads
The general load model diagram is shown in Figure 1 below.

1.1 Load-Flow Analysis
In the element window for the load, the user is free to choose whether the load is balanced or unbalanced. Furthermore the user can specify the input parameters for the load using the Input Mode drop down menu as shown in Figure 2 below. Based on the available data, the user can select the relevant combination of parameters from S (apparent power), P (real power), Q (reactive power), cos(phi) (power factor) and I (current). For load-flow analysis, it suffices to only specify the load's electrical consumption. Other data characterizing a load, such as the number of phases or voltage dependency factors (see also 1.1.3) are defined in the Load Type. If no load type is specified, a balanced, three-phase load is assumed having default parameters for voltage dependency kpu=1.6 and kqu=1.8 (see also section 1.1.4).
General Load Model
Figure 2: Specifying the input parameters for the load model
1.1.1 Balanced Load-Flow
Depending on the selected input mode, the user needs to specify two input parameters. Figure 3 shows the load model used for balanced load-flow analysis, where only P0 and Q0 are specified. All loads specified as 2-phase and/or 1-phase loads are only considered in unbalanced load flow calculations. They are ignored when a balanced load-flow is performed.
Figure 3: Load model used for balanced load-flows.
1.1.2 Unbalanced Load-Flow
When running a load flow with a complete ABC-network representation, network unbalances resulting from either unbalanced loads or unbalanced branch elements can be considered. Additional data for unbalanced load flow analysis is: • Technology
Figure 4 shows the input dialog window for specifying the type data for General loads.

1.1.2.1 3-phase loads (3PH-‘D’, 3PH PH-E, 3PH-’YN’)
The actual load per phase is entered in the input dialogue-box of the load element. The user has the choice between: • Balanced load, only specifying the sum of all phases. In this case, it is assumed that the load is shared equally amongst the phases. Unbalanced load, specifying the individual phase loads.

1.1.2.2 2-Phase Loads (2PH PH-E, 2PH-’YN’)
Such a load type can be used for modelling loads in two-phase or bi-phase systems.

1.1.2.3 1-phase loads (1PH PH-PH, 1PH PH-N, 1PH PH-E)
The “1PH PH-PH” load model can be used for representing loads connected between two phases, which is in fact a single-phase load between two phases (see Figure 10).
Figure 10: 1-phase, Technology 1PH PH-PH load model diagram
The “1PH PH-N” load model can be used for a load connected between one phase and the neutral phase (see Figure 11).
General Load Model

The “1PH PH-E” load model can be used for a load connected between one phase and earth (see Figure 12).
Figure 12: 1-phase, Technology 1PH PH-E load model diagram
1.1.3 DC loads
DC-loads are always “single-phase”, as shown in Figure 10. For load flow analysis, the load is characterized by the active power flow P. Inductive effects are only considered in transient simulations.

1.1.4 Voltage dependency
Voltage dependency of loads can be modelled using a potential approach, as shown in (1) and (2). In these equations, the subscript 0 indicates the initial operating condition as defined in the input dialogue box of the Load Element.

where
1 − aP − bP = cP

where
1 − aQ − bQ = cQ
By specifying the respective exponents (e_aP/e_bP/e_cP and e_aQ/e_bQ/e_cQ ) the inherent load behaviour can be modelled. Table 1 provides the value for the exponents required to achieve constant power, current and impedance behaviour. However, the relative proportion of each coefficient can be freely defined using the coefficients aP, bP, cP and aQ, bQ, cQ. See Figure 11.

1.1.5 Load Scaling factors
Loads can be scaled individually by setting the “Scaling Factor” s of the Load Element (see also Figure 16). Together with the scaling factor, the actual load is calculated as follows:
P = scale ⋅ P0 Q = scale ⋅ Q0
If voltage dependency of loads is considered then (3) and (4) become;
e _ aP e _ bP e _ cP ⎛ ⎞ ⎛v⎞ ⎛v⎞ ⎜ aP ⋅ ⎛ v ⎞ ⎟ ⎜ ⎟ P = scale ⋅ P0 + bP ⋅ ⎜ ⎟ + (1 − aP − bP ) ⋅ ⎜ ⎟ ⎜v ⎟ ⎜v ⎟ ⎜v ⎟ ⎜ ⎟ ⎝ 0⎠ ⎝ 0⎠ ⎝ 0⎠ ⎝ ⎠ e _ aQ e _ bQ e _ cQ ⎛ ⎞ ⎛v⎞ ⎛v⎞ ⎛v⎞ ⎟ Q = scale ⋅ Q0 ⎜ aQ ⋅ ⎜ ⎟ + bQ ⋅ ⎜ ⎟ + (1 − aQ − bQ ) ⋅ ⎜ ⎟ ⎜v ⎟ ⎜v ⎟ ⎜v ⎟ ⎜ ⎟ ⎝ 0⎠ ⎝ 0⎠ ⎝ 0⎠ ⎝ ⎠

Alternatively to explicit scaling factors, loads in radial feeders can be scaled based on the total inflow into the feeder, as illustrated in Figure 17. For considering a load in the feeder-load-scaling process, the option “Adjusted by Load Scaling” (see Figure 16) has to be enabled. In this case, the individual “Scaling Factor” of the load is not considered but overwritten by the feeder-scaling factor. The feeder-load-scaling function can be enabled or disabled globally using the corresponding load-flow option (see also Figure 15).

1.2 Short-Circuit Analysis
Short circuit calculations according to IEC 60909, VDE102/103 or ANSI C37 generally neglect loads. Only motor contributions are considered here. The COMPLETE short circuit method utilises constant impedance (Z) or constant current I0 models. Z and I0 are calculated from a preceding load-flow analysis. Figure 18 shows the type data window used to select whether the load is constant current or constant impedance. See notes on Harmonic Analysis for further explanation of the models.
Figure 18: Selection of load type of either constant current or constant impedance for consideration in short circuit calculations using the Complete Method.
Figure 19 shows a 3-phase representation of a Y connected constant impedance and Figure 20 shows the 3phase representation of the D connected constant current model.

1.3 Harmonic Analysis
In the type data of the general load model, the harmonic load model can be specified as either constant impedance or current source. Figure 21 shows the selection of the harmonic load model type.
Figure 21: Selection of the load model type for harmonic analysis
1.3.1 Passive Load
Passive loads can be represented as purely inductive or capacitive or a mixture of inductive and capacitive. Figure 22 shows the single-phase representation of a purely inductive and capacitive load.
General Load Model
Figure 22: Purely inductive/capacitive load models used for harmonic analysis
The parameters R,L (G,C) are calculated from a preceding load-flow. Figure 23 shows the single-phase load model for mixed inductive/capacitive load models (e.g. cables), used during harmonic analysis.
Figure 23: The single phase equivalent for mixed inductive/capacitive load model
NOTE: Figure 22 and Figure 23 are single phase representations of the passive load. The 3-phase presentation is similar to that shown in Figure 6 and Figure 5, and with either Y or D connections. The inductive/capacitive portion of the load is specified by (7) and (8);

1.3.2 Harmonic Current Injections
Nonlinear loads are described by their harmonic current spectrum. A requirement for modelling current injecting loads is to set the corresponding parameter on the harmonics page to current source. For balanced loads, only characteristic harmonics can be specified. Figure 24 shows the specification of the characteristic harmonic spectrum in the element data window of the load. The angles of harmonic currents are defined with reference to the fundamental frequency phase angle (cosine reference). This way of entering phase angles allows defining the current waveform independent from the power factor at fundamental frequency. Figure 24 shows the current spectrum of an ideal 6-pulse rectifier. Absolute current angles will be adjusted by
PowerFactory according to (10).
Figure 24: Specification of the harmonic current spectrum for balanced loads
The harmonic currents are defined by (9) and the phase angle of the harmonic currents is defined by (10).

where fn is the nominal frequency and ϕ1is phase angle of the fundamental current. In case of unbalanced loads, frequency, phase angle and magnitude of harmonic currents can be entered individually for each phase. Figure 25 shows the input window for entering such data.
Figure 25: Specification of the harmonic current spectrum per phase for unbalanced loads
1.4 RMS Simulation (Transient Stability)
For RMS simulations a three-phase load can be modelled as a percentage of static and dynamic load. The static portion is modelled as constant impedance whereas the dynamic load can be modelled as either a linear load or a non-linear load. Two-phase, single-phase- and DC loads are generally modelled as constant impedance.
General Load Model
Figure 26: Diagram indicating the mixture of static and dynamic loads used for stability studies.
The background of the dynamic, voltage- and frequency dependent load model according to Figure 24 and Figure 25 is a motor-load in parallel to a static, non-linear load. The parameters of the block diagrams in Figure 24 and Figure 25 can either be calculated from such a configuration, but they are usually identified from load measurements. The model according to Figure 24 is a small signal approximation of the model according to Figure 25. Parameters with equal names correspond to each other.
Figure 27: Model used to approximate the behaviour of the linear dynamic load.
General Load Model
Figure 28: Model used to approximate the behaviour of the non-linear dynamic load.
Since the block diagrams according to Figure 27 and Figure 28 represent small signal models, they are only valid in a limited voltage range. This voltage range is defined by the variables umin and umax. Outside this voltage range, the power is adjusted according to Figure 29.
Figure 29: Low/High voltage approximations used in the non-linear dynamic load model.
With reference to the outputs of the block diagrams according to Figure 24 and Figure 25, the load equations representing the full voltage range can be expressed as follows:

P = k .Pout Q = k .Qout k =1 k= 2u u min

: u min < u < u max : 0 u max
1.5 EMT Simulation
In EMT type simulations, all the loads are modelled as passive loads using the equivalent circuits shown in the harmonics-section.
NOTE: The use of negative active power leads in EMT simulations to unstable behaviour, since negative P is interpreted as negative resistance.
