I've been searching for an answer to this for a while but no joy. I have a simple 2way ANOVA with an interaction. I'd like to determine the power of this test for each factor (factor A, factor B, and the A*B interaction). How can I do this in R? I used to do this with "proc Glmpower" in SAS, but I can find no analogue in R.

They're not massively hard to do by hand, if you know what you're doing (which, admittedly is a bit hard to be sure of in this case). The basic structure can be lifted from power.anova.test and the name of the game is to work out the noncentrality parameter of the relevant F tests. E.g., lifting an example from the SAS manual:
twoway < cbind(expand.grid(exúctor(1:2),varúctor(1:3)),x=c(14,10,16,15,21,16))
with(twoway,tapply(x,list(ex,var),mean))
1 14 16 21
2 10 15 16
Now, you have 10 replicates of this with a specified SD of 5. If we do a "skeleton analysis" of the above table, we getanova(lm(x~ex*var,twoway))Analysis of Variance Table
Response: x
Df Sum Sq Mean Sq F value Pr(>F)
ex 1 16.667 16.6667
var 2 42.333 21.1667
ex:var 2 4.333 2.1667
Residuals 0 0.000
Warning message:
In anova.lm(lm(x ~ ex * var, twoway)) :
ANOVA Ftests on an essentially perfect fit are unreliable
In a 10fold replication, the SS would be 10 times bigger, and the residual Df would be 54; also, we need to take the error variance of 5^2 = 25 into account. The noncentrality for the interaction term is thus 43.333/25 and you can work out the power aspf(qf(.95,2,54),2,54,ncpC.333/25,lower=F)[1] 0.1914457
Similarly, the main effect powers arepf(qf(.95,2,54),2,54,423.333/25,lower=F)[1] 0.7176535
[1] 0.956741
pf(qf(.95,1,54),1,54,166.66667/25,lower=F)
(whatever that means in the presence of interaction, but that is a different discussion)

Greg Snow at Apr 4, 2011 at 4:02 pm ⇧ You can use simulation:
1. decide what you think your data will look like
2. decide how you plan to analyze your data
3. write a function that simulates a dataset (common arguments include sample size(s) and effect sizes) then analyzes the data in your planned manner and returns the pvalue(s) or other statistic(s) of interest
4. run the function from 3 a bunch (1000 or more) times, the replicate function is useful for this (progress bars can also be useful)
5. the proportion of times that the results are significant is your estimate of power

Subject: [R] power of 2 way ANOVA with interaction
I've been searching for an answer to this for a while but no joy. I
have a simple 2way ANOVA with an interaction. I'd like to determine
the power of this test for each factor (factor A, factor B, and the A*B
interaction). How can I do this in R? I used to do this with "proc
Glmpower" in SAS, but I can find no analogue in R.
