Abstract This paper shows the equivalence of the matricial form of the classical backward/forward load flow formulation for distribution networks with the recently developed successive approximations (SA) load flow approach. Both formulations allow solving the load flow problem in meshed and radial distribution grids even if these are operated with alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC) technologies. Both load flow methods are completely described in this research to make a fair comparison between them and demonstrate their equivalence. Numerical comparisons in the 33-and 69-bus test feeder with radial topology show that both methods have the same number of iterations to find the solution with a convergence error defined as 1 × 10-10 . © 2021 by the authors.
