Load flow solution for meshed distribution networks

Agrawal , Shwetank and Kumar , Durgit (2013) Load flow solution for meshed distribution networks. BTech thesis.



Power flow is a useful tool in operation, planning and optimisation of a system. Distribution systems, generally, refers to the power system network connected to loads at lower operating voltage. In this thesis an efficient power flow method for solving meshed distribution networks by using current injection method and basic formulations of Kirchhoff's laws has been acknowledged. This method has excellent convergence characteristics and thus is more efficient than Newton-Raphson and Fast Decoupled Method. This method can be applied to the solution of both the three-phase (unbalanced) and single-phase (balanced) representation of the network. The main objective of this thesis is to study the Forward-Backward Sweep and to derive the inference that how much efficient it is in solving the load flow problem of the meshed distribution networks.
