  author={Geraldo L. Torres},
The solution of an optimal power ow (OPF) problem in rectangular form by an interior-point method (IPM) for nonlinear programming is described. When formulated in rectangular form, some OPF variants have quadratic objective and quadratic constraints. Such quadratic features allow for ease of matrix setup and inexpensive incorporation of higher-order information in a predictor-corrector procedure that improves the IPM performance. Besides presenting an OPF in rectangular form, the paper… CONTINUE READING
