Aim of this work is to present an algorithm that could assist system operators facing higher fault levels than protection equipment can handle. The algorithm seeks an optimum system operating point, subject to operating and Fault Current Constraints (FCCs). This is achieved by an enhanced Optimal Power Flow (OPF) considering both traditional operating… CONTINUE READING
