The variation of topological features during coarsening dynamics in different three-state models were compared. The models analyzed were the Potts model, the Voter model and a Voter model extended by Potts energy. The analysis was focused on the time dependence of the concentration of the one-, two- and three-neighbour vertices as well as on the interfacial energy of islands. The numerical analysis indicated that the concentrations of three types of vertices tend very slowly towards fixed ratio, while the typical scale length increases in the Voter model.
