Voltage collapse is the possible outcome of voltage instability. Voltage collapse occurs when the transmission lines are operating very close to their maximum capacity limits. This paper focuses on the usefulness of two voltage stability indices to find out the weak bus so that the appropriate measures can be taken in advance to avoid voltage collapse. In this paper, WSCC 3 Machine, nine bus test system has been considered and comparison of different voltage stability indices is done to predict voltage collapse.
- Voltage collapse
- Fast Voltage Stability Index (FVSI)
- Line Stability Factor (LQP)
