ABSTRACT

In partnership with both Landsnet and Verkis, this thesis demonstrates the use of multiple industry-accepted tests to determine a suitable connection point for Hvalárvirkjun, a newly proposed hydropower plant in the Westfjords of Iceland. To determine the best possible connection point, tests based on voltage profile, line loading, reliability, and cost were performed. First, a steady state power flow analysis was completed to determine both line loadings and the voltage levels at each bus for each option. Furthermore, a N-1 contingency analysis combined with a probabilistic reliability assessment was used to determine the reliability of each option. Finally, a project cost and social cost was determined to help evaluate the potential for each connection point. Combining the results from all of the tests, a final recommendation was made which includes three of the ten different options, where two recommendations show a 66 kV connection directly to Ísafjörður in the northern ring and the other advises a 132 kV connection to Mjólká.
