Starting induction motors on isolated or weak systems is a highly dynamic process that can cause motor and load damage as well as electrical network fluctuations. Mechanical damage is associated with the high starting current drawn by a ramping induction motor. In order to compensate the load increase, the voltage of the electrical system decreases.(More)
Operators solve optimal power flow problems to determine how to adjust generator dispatches and control devices in order to maintain a power system running in a secure and efficient manner. However, optimal power flow software typically make use of a number of control adjustments that is impractical for an operator to execute due to time constraints.(More)
