Optimal Power Flow in Distribution Networks under N-1 Disruptions: A Multi-stage Stochastic Programming Approach

Contingency research to find optimal operations and post-contingency recovery plans in distribution networks has gained a major attention in recent years. To this end, we consider a multi-period optimal power flow (OPF) problem in distribution networks, subject to the N-1 contingency where a line or distributed energy resource fails. The contingency can be modeled as … Read more

Fleet Sizing and Empty Freight Car Allocation

Empty freight car allocation problems as well as eet sizing problems depict highly important topics in the eld of railway cargo optimization. Fleet sizing is mainly used in order to nd the minimal number of freight cars ( xed costs) needed to operate the transportation network successfully (e.g. satisfy customer demands). After a consignment is transported … Read more
