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. ...
Optimal contract pricing of distributed generation under a competitive framework
A bilevel programming approach for the optimal contract pricing of distributed generation (DG) in distribution networks is presented. The outer optimization problem corresponds to the owner of the DG who must decide the ...
Nonlinear cutting stock problem model to minimize the number of different patterns and objects

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 ...
