Convex Relaxations for Quadratic On/Off Constraints and Applications to Optimal Transmission Switching

This paper studies mixed-integer nonlinear programs featuring disjunctive constraints and trigonometric functions. We first characterize the convex hull of univariate quadratic on/off constraints in the space of original variables using perspective functions. We then introduce new tight quadratic relaxations for trigonometric functions featuring variables with asymmetrical bounds. These results are used to further tighten recent … Read more
