A method is proposed for obtaining a nondiverging power-flow program. The technique is shown to converge in some cases where Newton's method may diverge. When convergence is not obtained, the technique generally indicates where the problem is by putting the largest mismatch at the bus where the overload is occurring. This technique will aid in identifying buses at which the real and/or the reactive power load has been incorrectly calculated or estimated or data which has been erroneously typed in the input. The method is very simple to program and can be easily incorporated into any power-flow program which uses as iterative technique.
