A new solution to the optimal power flow problem
A new approach to solving the Optimal Power Flow problem is described, making use of some recent findings, especially in the area of primal-dual methods for complex programming. In this approach, equality constraints are ...
Reduced gradient method combined with augmented Lagrangian and barrier for the optimal power flow problem
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2008)
A new approach for solving the optimal power flow (OPF) problem is established by combining the reduced gradient method and the augmented Lagrangian method with barriers and exploring specific characteristics of the relations ...
A common Tabu search algorithm for the global optimization of engineering problems
(Elsevier B.V., 2001-01-01)
A novel common Tabu algorithm for global optimizations of engineering problems is presented. The robustness and efficiency of the presented method are evaluated by using standard mathematical functions and hy solving a ...

Structural shape optimization by IGABEM and particle swarm optimization algorithm
In this paper, a new approach is developed for structural shape optimization, which consists in coupling the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm and the isogeometric boundary element method (IGA-BEM). The IGA-BEM ...
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 ...
A modified ant colony optimization algorithm modeled on tabu-search methods
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2006-04-01)
An earlier model underlying the foraging strategy of a pachycodyla apicalis ant is modified. The proposed algorithm incorporates key features of the tabu-search method in the development of a relatively simple but robust ...
Optimal control problem for deflection plate with crack
(Springer/plenum Publishers, 2012-07-01)
We consider a control problem where the state variable is defined as the solution of a variational inequality. This system describes the vertical displacement of points of a thin plate with the presence of crack inside ...
