In this paper, a novel load-flow method for unbalanced bipolar dc microgrids (BDCMGs) is presented. The principles of this method are based on the modified augmented nodal analysis (MANA) formulation, which is generic and simple to formulate. An unbalanced BDCMG is also used to verify the validity of the proposed MANA-based formulation. The findings also substantiate that in BDCMGs, different connections of DGs can highly affect the bipolar voltage profiles, in presence of different line resistances and droop coefficients.
