This paper presents the methodology used in the development of a new generation of software suitable for the analysis and control of large-scale power networks containing FACTS-controlled branches. A Newton-Raphson load flow is used in this paper to emphasise the benefits and drawbacks introduced by the object-oriented technology when applied to `number-crunching' power engineering solutions. The Newton-Raphson algorithm exhibits quadratic convergence for cases with FACTS-controlled branches. Full details of the prowess of this algorithm are given in a companion paper. C++ has been used to develop compact and easy-to-maintain power systems conventional sparsity software. To aid portability the software has been developed under the UNIXTM environment
