PROBLEMS:
1.A constant load of 300 MW is supplied by two 200 MW generators 1 and 2, for which the respective incremental fuel costs are:
dC1/dPG1= 0.10 PG1 + 20.0 dC2/dPG2= 0.12 PG2 + 15.0 With power PG in MW and costs C in Rs/hr. Determine:
(a) The most economical division of load between the generators.
(b) The saving in Rs./ day there by obtained compared to equal load sharing.
2.Incremental fuel costs in rupees per megawatt hour for two units are given by
dF1/dP1= 0.1P1 + 20 and dF2/dP2= 0.12P2 + 10 the maximum and minimum loads on each unit are to 25MW and 120MW, respectively. Determine the incremental fuel cost and the
allocation of load between units for minimum cost when the loads are: 
(a) 100MW 
(b)150MW.
3.The fuel cost functions in Rs./hr. for three thermal plants are given by
C1 = 400+8.4P1+0.006P12, 100 =P1 =600 C2 = 600+8.93P2+0.006P22, 60= P2 =300 Where P1, P2, are in MW. Neglecting line losses and including generator limits, determine the optimal generation scheduling where PD = 820MW.
4.A power System consists of two, 125 MW units whose input cost data are represented by the equations :
C1 = 0.04 P12+ 22 P1 + 800 Rupees/hour C2 = 0.045 P22+ 15 P2 + 1000 Rupees/hour If the total received power PR = 200 MW. Determine the load sharing between units for most economic operation.
5.The fuel cost functions in Rs./hr. for three thermal plants are given by
C1 = 400+8.4P1+0.006 P12, 100 = P1 =600 C2 = 650+6.78P2+0.004 P22, 300= P2=650 Where P1, P2, are in MW. Neglecting line losses and including generator limits, determine the optimal generation scheduling where PD = 1550MW.
6.150 MW, 220 MW and 220 MW are the ratings of three units located in a thermal power station. Their respective incremental costs are given by the following equations
dc1/dp1 = Rs(0.11p1 + 12); dc3/dp3 = Rs(0.1p3 + 13) dc2/dp2 = Rs(0.095p2 + 14) Where P1, P2 and P3 are the loads in MW. Determine the economical load allocation
between the three units, when the total load on the station is(a) 350 MW (b) 500 MW.
7.A simple
dC1 / dPG1 = 0.01 PG1 + 2.0 dC2 / dPG2 = 0.01 PG2 + 1.5 determine PG1 and PG2 when the load on the system is 1000MW.
8.A power system consists of two 100 MWunits whose input cost data are represented by equations below:
C1 = 0.04 P12 + 22 P1 + 800 Rupees/hour C2 = 0.045 P22+ 15 P2 + 1000 Rupees/hour If total received power PR = 150 Mw. Determine the load sharing between units for most economic operation.

INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the course on Basic Electrical Engineering Power System Analysis. This course has been introduced to serve as a complete book for students undergoing a course in transmission, distribution, stability, load flow, fault studies.
It is known that the ability to use mathematics makes the study more meaningful and less ambiguous. Hence, a balance between mathematical details and qualitative discussion has been maintained. Thus matrix analysis is used throughout the given content of syllabus for the course.
The use of per unit systems is also being added which is necessary for a power engineer to become facile in the use of per unit system. It also lays ground work for solving
Network equations, also dealing with network topology and transformation methods.
