  • The {\it AC Optimal Power Flow} (OPF) problem is a fundamental problem in power systems engineering which has been known for decades. It is a notoriously hard problem due mainly to two reasons: (1) non-convexity of the power flow constraints and (2) the (possible) existence of discrete power injection constraints. Recently, sufficient conditions were provided for certain convex relaxations of OPF to be exact in the continuous case, thus allowing one to partially address the issue of non… CONTINUE READING
