Tutorials on Advanced Optimization Methods

This material provides thorough tutorials on some optimization techniques frequently used in various engineering disciplines, including convex optimization, linearization technique and mixed-integer linear programming, robust optimization, and equilibrium/game problems. It discusses how to reformulate a difficult problem to a solver-compatible form via convexi cation, linearization, and decomposition, so the original problem can be reliably solved by … Read more

Real-Time Dispatchability of Bulk Power Systems with Volatile Renewable Generations

The limited predictability and high variability of renewable generations has brought significant challenges on the real-time operation of bulk power systems. This paper proposes the concept of real-time dispatchability (RTDA) of power systems with variable energy resources, which focuses on investigating the impact of operating constraints and the cost of corrective actions on the flexibility … Read more
