This paper reports a study on determining steady. state voltage stability limit of interface flow on a set of interface lines between the metropolitan region and the neighboring regions in the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO). The interface flow limit considering severe contingencies is determined with a concept of interface flow margin, which is the active power flow margin of the key transmission lines between one region and others under a fixed load demand condition. The paper proposes a procedure to determine secure limit of active power flow on a set of specified interface lines. The procedure uses the modified continuation power flow (MCPF) tracing a path of power flow solutions with respect to generation shift to vary interface flow. In simulation, voltage stability limits of the metropolitan interface flow of the KEPCO'98 system are determined.
