This paper reviews the development of the probabilistic load flow (PLF) techniques. Applications of the PLF techniques in different areas of power system steady-state analysis are also discussed. The purpose of the review is to identify different available PLF techniques and their corresponding suitable applications so that a relatively accurate and efficient PLF algorithm can be determined for the concerned system, e.g. a distribution system with large integration of renewable energy based… Expand
