Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of the paper is to develop a simple, efficient and robust power flow (PF) method for ill-conditioned distribution networks (DNs).

Design/methodology/approach

It first formulates the PF problem as an optimization problem of minimizing the node power mismatches, while treating the corrections of node voltages as problem variables and then uses soccer game optimization (SGO), an artificial intelligent algorithm simulating the behavior of soccer game players in scoring goals, in solving the formulated PF problem.

Findings

It studies the performances of the developed method on four standard test DNs and exhibits that the method is superior in respect of accuracy, robustness and computational speed than those of existing methods.

Originality/value

It suggests a novel and new PF method using SGO and portrays that the proposed method is as accurate as any other PF method, robust like non-Newton type of PF methods and faster than Newton type of PF methods.
