Renewable power sources are environmentally friendly power generation systems, such as wind turbines or photovoltaics; however, the output power fluctuations due to the intermittence and variability of these power systems can greatly affect the quality and stability of the power system network. Furthermore, the power fluctuations that are triggered by power load devices also have similar results on the power system. Therefore, it is essential to introduce power level control for controllable power devices and connection in order to lessen the effects of dynamic power fluctuations that are caused by fluctuating power source devices and load devices. The issue of power balancing as a part of power level control presented in this paper assigns power levels to controllable power devices and connections between power source devices and load devices to absorb dynamic power fluctuations. In this paper, we focus on power conservation law instead of detailed voltage or current-based network characterization and present a new power balanceability test for a power flow system that comprises of both fluctuating and controllable power devices. Our proposed power balanceability test can assure the existence of a power flow assignment of power devices and connections for any value of power generation and/or the consumption of fluctuating power devices. Our proposed power balanceability test method can be expressed as a linear programming problem, and it can be resolved in polynomial time complexity. View Full-Text
