"Given a three phase ac power distribution system, a digital computer program is presented which determines a complete steady state solution for a given condition. The network data is processed by the computer into an admittance matrix, and these parameters are stored in a manner that enables the computer program to operate upon them as the coefficient of a simultaneous set of nonlinear equations. This set of equations are solved by the Gauss-Seidel Iterative Process improved by a modification of the relaxation method. Practical experience with the distribution system of the Davenport, Iowa, plant of the Aluminum Company of America (Alcoa), is also described. Results are briefly discussed with relevance to the importance of the inclusion of an improved data for future work"--Abstract, page ii.
