Optimal Power Flow Analysis
This chapter describes the optimal power flow problem. Section 6.1 provides the background of the OPF problem and justifies the need for numerical methods. Section 6.2 provides a general nonlinear programming model for the OPF problem. A variety of examples are also provided in this section. Section 6.3 describes two solver methods for tackling the OPF problem, namely the generalized reduced gradient and the primal-dual interior-point methods. For the latter method, the Python implementation and numerical results are also provided. Finally, Section 6.4 summarizes common parameters of the interior point method.
