We propose an optimal power flow method for multiphase power systems. The method works for both radial and meshed networks, and is able to accommodate different types of load/source connections such as wye, delta, and combination thereof. Moreover, the method generates a sequence of nonsingular points (i.e., associated with non-singular power-flow Jacobian) in the electrical state space and a corresponding sequence of power injections, which can be used in real-time control settings. Under certain conditions, the sequences attain the local minimum. The method has been tested using several typical networks, including the IEEE 37-bus and 123-bus test feeders.
