The power flow on an AC transmission line can be impacted by thermal, voltage magnitude, voltage-drop, and steady-state stability limitations. This seminar deals with the steady-state voltage limitations and using phase angles as a proxy. Existing real time tools in the control room address the thermal, voltage magnitude, and voltage drop limitations. Note that voltage stability is related to phase angles. In addition, the power component of a traditional PV curve is associated with phase angles across a circuit.
