The design of a mine electric power system requires that power-flow studies be conducted to guarantee that all motor operating and starting loads can be met while maintaining acceptable bus voltage levels. A nondiverging power-flow formulation based on Newton's method is presented which is applicable to power-flow method is presented which is applicable to power-flow programs that use the polar form of the bus voltage variables. The method guarantees nondivergence of the power-flow solution and provides an indication of where erroneous system data exists for nonconvergent cases.
