Abstract:

A method is presented for modeling a transmission line for transient analysis study on the digital computer. The line is modeled as a finite number of lumped parameter sections. Each section is modeled in an equivalent section of resistors and current sources developed from solving the voltage and current equations by the trapezoidal rule for integration. The integration takes place over a period of time from a known state, t, to an unknown state, t delta t. The time step, delta t, is taken to be the lossless travel time for the traveling wave to cross each section. The single phase lossless case is handled first, then losses are accounted for, and finally the three phase line is dealt with. Author
