This paper discusses various methods based on power network partitioning and voltage stability indices to accelerate the computation of voltage collapse points using continuation techniques. Partitioning methods derived from right eigenvector and tangent vector information are thoroughly studied, identifying limitations and probable application areas; a mixed partition-reduction technique is then proposed to reduce computational burden. Also, tangent vectors are used to define a clustering method for the identification at any operating condition of the critical area at the collapse point, and a new voltage stability index is defined based on the identification of this critical area. Finally, a predictor-corrector methodology based on this index and the continuation method is proposed for fast computations of voltage collapse points. All the different methods are compared based on the results obtained for the IEEE 300-bus test system, and a methodology is recommended based on its prospective computational savings
