Masters Theses


"A new short circuit program has been developed for a large system. Several features have been provided to simplify handling of the system data. Various study cases are performed, efficiently, within the available computer memory. A master data bank is established from bus, feeder and transformer data. They can be modified internally to simulate various system configurations. Matrix formation is accomplished using a new sorting method and the IBM/360 Matrix Language MATLAN. A generalized set of ii ·equations have been developed and applied to calculate four types of faults.

The program consists of two phases of operations. In phase-1, input data are handled and stored on a magnetic tape using FORTRAN language. In phase-2, stored data are used to form the positive and zero sequence matrices using MATLAN and to perform the fault calculations using a FORTRAN subprogram "--Abstract, page ii.
