CDFLOW: A Practical Tool for Tracing Stationary Behaviors of General Distribution Networks

  title={CDFLOW: A Practical Tool for Tracing Stationary Behaviors of General Distribution Networks},
  author={Hao Sheng and H. D. Chiang},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Power Systems},
The widespread use of distributed generations (DGs) in utility distribution feeders is a trend, and it brings about several challenges to the operation, planning, and design of general distribution networks. In this paper, a comprehensive tool, Continuation Distribution Power Flow (CDFLOW), is presented and evaluated. CDFLOW can be used for tracing steady-state stationary behaviors of general unbalanced distribution systems due to various types of power injection variations, including high… CONTINUE READING
