An efficient heuristic algorithm for automatic partitioning of a power system network is presented. The algorithm exploits the techniques of factorization path graph partitioning and equivalent post-ordering. These results for systems up to 811 busbars and 1476 transmission lines are included for comparison purposes. This shows that the method is able to divide a power system network model into a number of equal sized subnetworks in order to optimise the use of parallel computer systems for network analysis, while the resultant number of fill-in elements is kept to a minimum.
