This paper employs principal component analysis (PCA), a data mining technique, to study power flow. A simulation-based process is established to perform the study, which consists of steps such as system linearization, training data construction, PCA analysis and results interpretation. The PCA results are presented in a straightforward manner, and interpreted from power system perspective. The conclusions not only are consistent with the well-known facts such as PQ decoupling, but also… CONTINUE READING
