Seminar with Prof Miguel Anjos

Professor Miguel Anjos from the University of Edinburgh is giving a seminar on: Tight-and-Cheap Conic Relaxations for AC Optimal Power Flow and Optimal Reactive Power Dispatch Abstract: The classical alternating current optimal power flow problem is nonconvex and generally hard to solve. We propose a new conic relaxation obtained by combining semidefinite optimization with RLT…. Read more »
