—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)
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)
