A New Technique for Load-Flow Analysis of Radial Distribution Networks

Smarajit Ghosh

Abstract—A simple method to solve the load-flow problem of radial distribution networks is reported in this paper. This algorithm easily computes the power flow through any branch exploiting the radial feature of the distribution networks. The proposed method also reduces the data preparation and can handle arbitrary node numbering scheme very easily. The proposed method is compared with the other methods proposed by Das et al. [15], Ghosh et al. [16] and Ranjan et al. [19] to demonstrate its effectiveness. The detailed load-flow results for three examples with different kinds of load-modelling along with conclusion are presented in this paper.
