Abstract

Integrated energy networks will be key to develop low-carbon multi-energy systems. Steady-state multi-energy vector power flow (MEVPF) analysis is the cornerstone of integrated network studies. However, despite a wide range of recently developed models, there are still significant challenges that have not been fully addressed, including applicability of different MEVPF formulations to different network topologies and node types, flexibility in adapting new connections and components, and appropriate convergence behavior for different loading levels and initial conditions. This paper analyzes different formulations and their relevant applicability and convergence properties for the steady-sta..
