Tightening Quadratic Convex Relaxations for the AC Optimal Transmission Switching Problem

The Alternating Current Optimal Transmission Switching (ACOTS) problem incorporates line switching decisions into the fundamental AC optimal power flow (ACOPF) problem. The advantages of the ACOTS problem are well-known in terms of reducing the operational cost and improving system reliability. ACOTS optimization models contain discrete variables and nonlinear, non-convex constraints, which make it difficult to … Read more
