For nonconvex quadratically constrained quadratic programs (QCQPs), we first show that, under certain feasibility conditions, the standard semidefinite (SDP) relaxation is exact for QCQPs with bipartite graph structures. The exact optimal solutions are obtained by examining the dual SDP relaxation and the rank of the optimal solution of this dual SDP relaxation under strong duality. Our results on the QCQPs generalize the results on QCQP with sign-definite bipartite graph structures, QCQPs with forest structures, and QCQPs with nonpositive off-diagonal data elements. Second, we propose a conversion method from QCQPs with no particular structure to the ones with bipartite graph structures. As a result, we demonstrate that a wider class of QCQPs can be exactly solved by the SDP relaxation. Numerical instances are presented for illustration.
