This paper considers the scenario of a big new energy source connecting to an existing network of generators and loads. To be able to maintain such a network at the correct settings, the well known load flow equations have to be solved. Since existing software has trouble with solving the load flow equations in the scenario of a very large generator, new software was created using Matlab’s inherent fsolve function. This software was consequently used in combination with existing software of the MATPOWER package to calculate the optimal way of connecting a new large generator to an existing network. This was done for a relatively small case using a brute force method which iterated over all possible options.
