This approach is oriented toward applications in three phase distribution system operational analysis rather than planning analysis. The solution method is the optimally ordered triangular factorization Y BUS method (implicit ZBUS Gauss method) which not only takes advantage of the sparsity of system equations but also has very good convergence characteristics on distribution problems. Detailed component models are needed for all system components in the simulation. Utilizing the phase frame representation for all network elements, a program called Generalized Distribution Analysis Systems, with a number of features and capabilities not found in existing packages, has been developed for large-scale distribution system simulations. The system being analyzed can be balanced or unbalanced and can be a radial, network, or mixed-type distribution system. Furthermore, because the individual phase representation is employed for both system and component models, the system can comprise single, double, and three-phase systems simultaneously
