Summary form only given, as follows. This paper presents the development of mathematical models for thyristor controlled series compensators (TCSCs), for voltage regulator devices and for remote bus voltage control that are suitable to be used with the three-phase current injection method (TCIM) for power flow calculation. TCIM is a Newton method where the equations are written in rectangular coordinates resulting in a 6n /spl times/ 6n Jacobian matrix. The representation of a control device requires an augmented system of equations to incorporate the additional relationship between each control action and the controlled variable, resulting in an augmented Jacobian matrix. Practical distribution systems are tested and the effectiveness of the proposed formulation is demonstrated.
