Relation between the Branch-to-node Incidence and the Triangular Matrices in Radial Distribution Networks
The power flow solution is a classical problem in electrical engineering that has been studied for more than 60 years . One of the most widely used methods corresponds to the Newton-Raphson approach, which is currently employed for analyzing power systems with meshed configurations and multiple generation sources, i.e., it is typically employed for power systems in high-voltage levels .
