Single line representation of power system

Trying to represent a practical power system where a lot of interconnections between several generating stations involving a large number of transformers using three lines corresponding to R, Y and B phase will become unnecessary clumsy and complicated. To avoid this, a single line along with some symbolical representations for generator, transformers substation buses are used to represent a power system rather neatly. For example, the system shown in 2.6 with three lines will be simplified to figure 2.9 using single line.

As another example, an interconnected power system is represented in the self explained figure 2.10 – it is hoped that you understand the important features communicated about the system through this figure.
