Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The application of optimization to electrical power technology often requires the numerical solution of systems that are very large and possibly nondifferentiable. A brief survey of the state of the art of numerical optimization is presented in which those methods that are directly applicable to power system problems are highlighted. The areas of current research that are most likely to yield direct benefit to practical computation are identified. The paper concludes with a survey of available software.
