This paper brings a complete comparison among three power flow methods used worldwide for radial distribution systems. These methods are referred to as Power Summation, Current Summation and Ladder. For analysis, the methods were implemented in MATLAB® platform employing object-oriented programming. Using the IEEE 13 Node Test Feeder, different loading… CONTINUE READING
