Risk-Neutral and Risk-Averse Transmission Switching for Load Shed Recovery

Maintaining an uninterrupted supply of electricity is a fundamental goal of power systems operators. However, due to critical outage events, customer demand or load is at times disconnected or shed temporarily. While deterministic optimization models have been devised to help operators expedite load shed recovery by harnessing the flexibility of the grid’s topology (i.e., transmission … Read more

Scenario-based cuts for structured two-stage stochastic and distributionally robust p-order conic mixed integer programs

In this paper, we derive (partial) convex hull for deterministic multi-constraint polyhedral conic mixed integer sets with multiple integer variables using conic mixed integer rounding (CMIR) cut-generation procedure of Atamtürk and Narayanan (Math Prog 122:1–20, 2008), thereby extending their result for a simple polyhedral conic mixed integer set with single constraint and one integer variable. … Read more
