distribution systems, and has been tested on both radial and meshed systems. Control devices models have been incorporated in the MICT algorithm [9-10]. This methodology applies the full Newton method to solve the nonlinear current injection equations which are derived using phase coordinates, and the complex variables are written in rectangular form. The authors have recently extended TCIM to include neutral conductors and system grounding, thus this approach will be referred from now on as the Four-Conductor Current Injection Method FCIM [11]. Some new component models were developed and included in the methodology. The authors believe that this methodology will be of assistance for the analysis of unbalanced distribution systems with neutral conductors, isolated or with any kind of grounding. The equations have been derived so as to include mutual couplings, and allows for the computation of neutral and grounding voltages and currents directly. FCIM can be applied to solve radial or non-radial unbalanced distribution systems. The induction machines have been modelled using three different approaches: i.Constant slip; ii.Constant electrical power input/output; iii.Constant mechanical power output/input. In the first case, the equivalent circuit of the machine can be represented by fixed impedance, whereas in the second and third alternatives, an extra equation has been added to the equations to be solved by the full Newton method, using the slip as a new state variable. Thus the slip and the input reactive power are obtained when convergence is achieved. II. SUMMARY OF THE FOUR-CONDUCTOR CURRENT INJECTION METHOD - FCIM A. Basic Equations The proposed four conductor power flow formulation is based on the current injected at every node of the power system that can be expressed in terms of series and shunt connections. In terms of the bus admittance matrix the net current injected at busbar k is expressed as:

AbstractThis panel discussion summarizes some steady state distribution systems studies based on the Four-Conductor Current Injection Method - FCIM - power flow. This method applies the full Newton method to solve the nonlinear current injection equations which are derived using phase coordinates, and the complex variables are written in rectangular form. The method can include neutral currents and voltages. This summary intends to discuss simulation results obtained with some IEEE Distribution Test Feeders.

he IEEE test feeders available in [1] have been developed for the purpose of validation of distribution systems analysis software [2]. Recently some of the test systems have been extended to include a center tapped wye-delta transformer bank, and induction motors [3-6]. The current endeavour of the Distribution Systems Analysis Subcommittee - DSASC aims at the development of a larger IEEE-34 bus test system, including induction generators [7]. This panel discussion intends to report on steady-state studies that have been carried out on the center-tapped system [4-5], on the induction machine test case [6] and on the IEEE-34 Node system [7]. The Three-phase Current Injection Method TCIM of load flow analysis [8], has been developed to address unbalanced

symmetric component transformation, the three-phase admittance matrix Yabc can be obtained; since y1 and y2 are not equal, Yabc will be asymmetric and will represent the motor running at constant slip. Depending on the induction machine operation strategy adopted, it is necessary to define its control. Two of them were modelled in the FCIM: constant electrical power input/output and constant mechanical power output/input. Using any of these two control strategies, both y1 and y2 are functions of the machine slip (s). Thus the extra equation needed to represent the machine can be written in terms of s as a new state variable. For example, for constant electrical power input the new equation is written as follows:

These systems are available in [1]. It is important to emphasize that the available data was converted or adapted to phase coordinates because the FCIM simulation tool requires the data in this format. A. IEEE Center Tapped Wye-Delta Transformer Test Case The system shown in Figure 1 is based on the IEEE 4 Node Test Feeder [1], that was created to be used for testing four wire delta transformer models, where a more complete transformer model was included: the wye-delta transformer bank with a center-tapped transformer in one leg of the delta secondary [4-5]. According to [5], this is considered one of the more interesting transformer connections found in the distribution system, and presents a challenge to designers of three-phase distribution system analysis software. The center tap is grounded, which shifts the secondary side voltage reference to an unusual location for three-phase circuit analysis. One phase is significantly higher in voltage with respect to ground resulting in a crazy leg [5].

Equations (1) and (2) can be combined to produce nodal current injection equations, which can be linearized and expressed in terms of the corresponding real and imaginary parts. Writing these equations for all n nodes in the system, the resulting set of equations can be written as follows:

The off-diagonal elements of the Jacobian matrix in (3) are identical to the corresponding elements of the nodal admittance matrix and thus remain constant during the iterative Newton-Raphson solution process. The diagonal terms are dependent on the load and generation models [8]. B. Representation of Controls The system control devices are modeled using additional equations to represent the control actions [9]. The equations are linearized and added to the current injection equations (3), resulting in an enlarged Jacobian matrix. The full Newton method is then applied to find the solution. As an example, this methodology will be used to represent induction machine control. If the machine is operated at constant slip, the equivalent circuits for positive and negative sequence can be reduced to constant admittances. The zero sequence admittance is made equal to zero, as there are normally no neutral connections to induction machines. Thus the sequence admittance Y012 of the machine will be a diagonal matrix.

## Figure 2 34 Node Test Feeder With Induction Generators

The electrical power input in each generator is considered constant in this test case. Thus the procedure described in section II.B will be applied to solve this system. Once convergence is achieved, the calculated slip of each generator is obtained and the reactive power input can be calculated. The distributed loads specified for this case were divided between the from bus and the to bus of the respective line section. The voltage regulators actions were not considered in this case, as this would be useful to test the robustness of the method. The different connections (B1, B2 and B3) of the two induction generators transformers were simulated and a part of the results obtained with FCIM are shown on Tables 5 to 10. In all these cases, the electrical power input is constant at 660kW. B1 - Grounded wye wye

In this configuration there is no connection from the primary transformer neutral to the distribution line grounded neutral. Since the system is unbalanced, the primary wye transformer neutral voltage VNG will be 63.26/ 3.047 V.

The load flow converged in four iterations of the full Newton method. IV. CONCLUSIONS This panel discussion reported on steady-state studies which have been carried out on three IEEE Test Feeders. The simulations were conducted using the Four-Conductor Current Injection Method FCIM [11], that applies the full Newton method to solve the nonlinear current injection equations.The equations are derived using phase coordinates, and the complex variables are written in rectangular form. The method includes neutral conductors and grounding explicitly. It is seen that the results obtained are in close agreement with the calculations reported using other methods. It is also seen that FCIM is very robust, as convergence was obtained with not more than 4 iterations in all cases. The authors feel that this methodology will be of assistance for the analysis of radial or meshed unbalanced distribution systems. V.
