This chapter describes the classical methods for power-flow computation in transmission and distribution networks. The efficiency of the power-flow algorithm has crucial impact on the efficiency and robustness of methods in the functions ensuring optimal operation and planning of transmission and distribution networks. In this context, this chapter presents an introduction in the next chapters related to the optimal power flow in transmission and distribution networks, optimal reactive power dispatch, optimal siting and sizing of distributed generation in distribution networks, etc.
