The Optimal Power Flow module solves power system load flow, optimizes system operating conditions, and adjusts control variable settings, while ensuring system constraints are not violated.
An optimized system will reduce the installation and/or operating cost, improve overall system performance, and increase its reliability and security. The program also provides a variety of other choices of optimization objectives, which covers virtually all the optimization criteria for a real power system.
Any practical control methods in a power system are considered in the calculation.
Constraints for bus voltage, branch flow in different types (MVA, MW, Mvar, and Amp), as well as control variable adjustable bounds are also available for users to select and utilize.
