Load flow analysis is probably the most important of all network calculations since it concerns the network performance in its normal operating conditions. It is performed to investigate the magnitude and phase angle of the voltage at each bus and the real and reactive power flows in the system components. Load flow analysis has a great importance in future expansion planning, in stability studies and in determining the best economical operation for existing systems. Also load flow results are very valuable for setting the proper protection devices to insure the security of the system. In order to perform a load flow study, full data must be provided about the studied system, such as connection diagram, parameters of transformers and lines, rated values of each equipment, and the assumed values of real and reactive power for each load.
