This paper introduces an effective method for rural electrical systems planning. All three-phase, two-phase, and single-phase lines are simulated in one computer study. Typical load flow results are obtained from the study. The method emphasizes simplicity and flexibility. Very little computation time is required. Once the data are prepared the amount of work required to incorporate the changing of the system is small and very inexpensive. This type of flexibility is one of the most important contributions of this new method. The method applies to both long-range and short-term system planning.
