This supplementary document is part of the original 2-Part manuscript titled “A SensitivityBased Three-Phase Weather-Dependent Power Flow Algorithm for Networks with Local Controllers.” This research focuses on proposing a novel sensitivity-based three-phase weather-dependent power flow algorithm for distribution networks with local voltage controllers (LVCs). The proposed algorithm has four distinct characteristics: a) it considers the three-phase unbalanced nature of distribution systems, b) the operating state of LVCs is calculated using sensitivity parameters, which accelerates the convergence speed of the algorithm, c) it considers the precise switching sequence of LVCs based on their reaction time delays, and d) the nonlinear influence of weather variations in the power flow is also taken into consideration. In this supplementary document, the relevant derivations of the sensitivity parameters are presented to complement the original 2-Part manuscript.
