Penalty-based nonlinear solver for optimal reactive power dispatch with discrete controls
The optimal reactive dispatch problem is a nonlinear programming problem containing continuous and discrete control variables. Owing to the difficulty caused by discrete variables, this problem is usually solved assuming ...
Distribution network planning using a constructive heuristic algorithm
An optimization technique to solve distribution network planning (DNP) problem is presented. This is a very complex mixed binary nonlinear programming problem. A constructive heuristic algorithm (CHA) aimed at obtaining ...
On the solution of mathematical programming problems with equilibrium constraints
Mathematical programming problems with equilibrium constraints (MPEC) are nonlinear programming problems where the constraints have a form that is analogous to first-order optimality conditions of constrained optimization. ...
A specialized genetic algorithm to solve the short term transmission network expansion planning
In this paper, the short term transmission network expansion planning (STTNEP) is solved through a specialized genetic algorithm (SGA). A complete AC model of the transmission network is used, which permits the formulation ...
Optimality conditions for nonlinear infinite programming problems
An infinite programming problem consists in minimizing a functional defined on a real Banach space under an infinite number of constraints. The main purpose of this article is to provide sufficient conditions of optimality ...
Branch and bound algorithm for transmission network expansion planning using DC model
This paper presents an algorithm to solve the network transmission system expansion planning problem using the DC model which is a mixed non-linear integer programming problem. The major feature of this work is the use of ...
