Balanced three-phase dynamic load

**Library:**Simscape / Electrical / Passive

The Dynamic Load (Three-Phase) block models a balanced dynamic load for balanced three-phase supplies.

This table shows the relationship between the voltage from the supply, *V*,
the active power at the **P** port,
*P _{in}*, and the consumed active power of the
block,

Applicable Range of V
Values | Applicable Range of
P Values_{in} | Corresponding Consumed Active Power |
---|---|---|

$$V>{V}_{\mathrm{min}}$$ | $${P}_{in}>{P}_{\mathrm{min}}$$ | $${P}_{actual}={P}_{in}$$ |

$${P}_{in}<{P}_{\mathrm{min}}$$ | $${P}_{actual}={P}_{\mathrm{min}}$$ | |

$$V<{V}_{\mathrm{min}}$$ | $${P}_{in}>{P}_{\mathrm{min}}$$ | The block models a load with an impedance equal to: $$\begin{array}{l}R={V}_{\mathrm{min}}^{2}\frac{{P}_{actual}}{{P}_{actual}{}^{2}+{Q}_{actual}{}^{2}}\\ X={V}_{\mathrm{min}}^{2}\frac{{Q}_{actual}}{{P}_{actual}{}^{2}+{Q}_{actual}{}^{2}}\\ Z=\sqrt{{R}^{2}+{X}^{2}}\end{array}$$ |

$${P}_{in}<{P}_{\mathrm{min}}$$ | $${P}_{actual}={P}_{\mathrm{min}}$$ |

Where:

*V*is the value of the Minimum supply voltage (phase-to-phase RMS) parameter._{min}*P*is the value of the Minimum active power parameter._{min}*P*is the consumed active power of the Dynamic Load (Three-Phase) block._{actual}*Q*is the consumed reactive power of the Dynamic Load (Three-Phase) block._{actual}

The consumed reactive power of the block is equal to the **Q** port as long
as the voltage from the supply is equal to or greater than the value specified for the
**Minimum supply voltage (phase-to-phase RMS)** parameter.
Otherwise, the block models a load with an impedance equal to:

$$\begin{array}{l}R={V}_{\mathrm{min}}^{2}\frac{{P}_{actual}}{{P}_{actual}{}^{2}+{Q}_{actual}{}^{2}}\\ X={V}_{\mathrm{min}}^{2}\frac{{Q}_{actual}}{{P}_{actual}{}^{2}+{Q}_{actual}{}^{2}}\\ Z=\sqrt{{R}^{2}+{X}^{2}}\end{array}$$

The Dynamic Load (Three-Phase) block allows you to model an electrical fault as an open circuit. The block can trigger fault events at a specific time.

You can also choose whether to issue an assertion when a fault occurs by using the
**Reporting when a fault occurs** parameter. The assertion can
take the form of a warning or an error. By default, the block does not issue an
assertion.

If the block is in a network that is compatible with the frequency-time simulation mode, you can perform a load-flow analysis on the network. A load-flow analysis provides steady-state values that you can use to initialize a machine.
