When it is necessary to adjust the power flow over a certain bus, the method that best uses given conditions to efficiently adjust power flow is essential. There are several ways to control the power flow on transmission lines by adjusting the power generations but the method that controls the flow by rescheduling the generation is not adequate for use as it is not easy to carry out power flow adjustment on a particular line or it is not clear which power generator’s power generation capacity should be adjusted as the active power has little regional constraints. Thus, a method that can cope with these problems is required. Therefore, a method that trace the origin of power flow over a particular power line by using the power flow tracing technique to control power generation level and eventually adjust power flow has been proposed in this study.
