AN INTRODUCTION TO HVDC POWER TRANSMISSION


14.2

The script file pwrplt plots the AC power versus DC power.

% pwrplt-Script file to plot Pdc vs Pac

for phi=0:15:75
Pac=linspace(0,2,500);
Pdc=(0.9428)./(cos(phi*pi/180))*Pac;

14.3 The MATLAB function VIprofile, given below, plots the voltage profile of
variable lengths (as a fraction of wave length) of loss-free transmission lines for varying
load conditions
function [Vs,Is,leng] = VIprofile(L,C,Vr,Pr,pf,pftype,f);
% Programme to compute plot the VI profile of a transmission line

% Developed by the authors


%Computation of SIL of the line
Zc=sqrt(L/C);lambda=1/(f*sqrt(L*C))
SIL=(abs(Vr))^2/Zc;
%Computation of ABCD constants
beta=2*pi*f*sqrt(L*C);
l=input('length of line as percentage of lambda') % input length of the
% as a fraction of wave length
leng=fix(l*lambda)
Vs=zeros(1,leng+1);Is=zeros(1,leng+1);
for k=1:leng+1

Ir=Pr/(Vr*pf);
phi=acos(pf);
if pftype == 0;
phi=-phi;
else
end
Ir=Ir*(cos(phi)+i*sin(phi));

A=cos(beta*(k-1));D=A;
B=i*Zc*sin(beta*(k-1));C=i*sin(beta*(k-1))/Zc;
Vs(k)=A*Vr+B*Ir;
Is(k)=C*Vr+D*Ir;
end
end
for k=1:leng+1
