Abstract: Voltage stability is a relevant part of power system stability analysis ever since many voltage collapse incidences have occurred at different regions of the world. In this paper we take up IEEE 118 bus system as it represents a close approximation of standard Grid system. This IEEE 118-bus system has fixed number of predefined generators, synchronous condensers, transmission lines, transformers and loads. In this work IEEE 118 bus system is simulated and load flow simulation is computed using the software PSS®E. The weak buses of the IEEE standard 118 bus network are predicted with the help of L-Index Algorithm in MATLAB. Further dynamic simulation is also performed in the weak buses obtained from L-Index as it opens up scope of more detail analysis of the system. An initial transient disturbance is then introduced in the weak buses and then the resultant maximum frequency deviation and the recovery time of the voltage is computed which finally helps to detect the weak areas in the transmission network. Further Critical Clearing time of the weakest bus is also computed.
