This method removes (disable) all branches down-line from the active PDelement. Circuit must have an Energymeter on this branch. If KeepLoad=Y (default) a new Load element is defined and kW, kvar set to present power flow solution for the first element eliminated. The EditString is applied to each new Load element defined.
