This paper presents an analysis of the use of global parameterization techniques to the continuation power flow. Those techniques are considered inadequate for computation of the loading margin of power systems characterized by strong local static voltage stability. In such systems, at maximum loading point, the singularity of the Jacobian matrices of global parameterization techniques coincide with the one of the power flow Jacobian matrix. In those cases, the local parameterization is considered as the only way to overcome the singularity. However, this paper shows that this kind of singularity can be efficiently eliminated not only for these systems, but also for all others, by a new parameterization technique. This technique uses the addition of a line equation, which passes through a point in the plane determined by the sum of all the bus voltage magnitudes, or angles, and loading factor variables, that are variables commonly used by global parameterization techniques. The obtained results for several systems confirm the efficiency increased of the proposed methods and show its viability for applications in the operating planning in a modern energy management system.
