A B-Spline Global Optimization Algorithm for Optimal Power Flow Problem
This paper addresses a nonconvex optimal power flow problem (OPF). Specifically, a new B-spline approach in the context of OPF problem is introduced. The applicability of this new approach is shown on a real-world 3-bus power system. The numerical results obtained with this new approach for this problem a 3-bus system reveal a satisfactory improvement in terms of optimality when compared against traditional interior-point method based MATPOWER toolbox. Similarly, the results are also found to be satisfactory with respect to the global optimization solvers like BARON and GloptiPoly.
