The power flow analysis and its implementation in AC transmission network have become indispensible in a wide range of power system planning and operation. This paper focuses on the theory and algorithms of power flow analysis, which is essential to the understanding of the methodology of modern power flow analysis. The study gives explicit explanation of the fundamentals of power flow study and solution formulation, emphasized the applications of power flow analysis methods, which help in calculating load capability limit and critical voltage collapse point at the load bus. Effective implementations will ensure efficient economic operation and fast return on investment (ROI).
