Solving Multiplicative Programs by Binary-encoding the Multiplication Operation

Multiplicative programs in the form of maximization and/or minimization have numerous applications in conservation planning, game theory, and multi-objective optimization settings. In practice, multiplicative programs are challenging to solve because of their multiplicative objective function (a product of continuous or integer variables). These challenges are twofold: 1. As the number of factors in the objective … Read more

Towards Resilient Operation of Multi-Microgrids: An MISOCP-Based Frequency-Constrained Approach

High penetration of distributed energy resources (DERs) is transforming the paradigm in power system operation. The ability to provide electricity to customers while the main grid is disrupted has introduced the concept of microgrids with many challenges and opportunities. Emergency control of dangerous transients caused by the transition between the grid-connected and island modes in … Read more
