Abstract—In this paper a three-phase power flow for radial-meshed distribution systems considering different models voltage regulators is analyzed. In fact we study the effect of voltage regulator on radial-meshed network. A voltage regulator is equipment that maintains the voltage level in a predefined value in a distribution line. The 34 bus IEEE test feeder is considered for test. Also, the load flow method is direct solution algorithm.
Index Terms—Step voltage regulators, IEEE test feeders, direct solution algorithm.
