Strengthened SDP Relaxation for an Extended Trust Region Subproblem with an Application to Optimal Power Flow

We study an extended trust region subproblem minimizing a nonconvex function over the hollow ball $r \le \|x\| \le R$ intersected with a full-dimensional second order cone (SOC) constraint of the form $\|x – c\| \le b^T x – a$. In particular, we present a class of valid cuts that improve existing semidefinite programming (SDP) … Read more
