I am trying to run the load flow for 50buses. I have inserted the all parameters in the model but when I run the load flow I have an error showing as " Undefined function or variable 'Ybus' error". Does anyone have any clues about how to overcome this error ?

Hi, I am having the same issue. The load flow refers to the powergui --> load flow tool, there is also this error of YBUS but I couldn't find where the Y bus located. I tried to add a variable named YBUS in the workspace, which makes no difference. Can anyone let me know how to solve this?
Thank you so much.

It's not very clear what 'load flow' refers to, in the question. It's apparent that you're talking about Simulink Models and there are bus elements in the model, a total of 50.
Though, you've inserted all the parameters in the model, the error "Undefined function or variable -YBus-" indicates that upon Simulation the Model is unable to locate the "YBus" name and hence the error.
You can define a variable with name "YBus" at the Matlab command prompt, so that it comes into context of the currently loaded model, and then try running the model again.Successful execution of the Model indicates that "YBus" was expected to be a variable and not a function, the cause of error has been resolved. If it fails, probably "YBus" should've been a function, you should investigate more in that case.
Once the investigation is complete and you know the cause of the error, you may go ahead with ensuring that YBus, is properly known to the Model before expecting it's successful execution.
