We propose a mathematical programming-based approach to optimize the unit commitment problem with alternating current optimal power flow (ACOPF) network constraints. This problem is a nonconvex mixed-integer nonlinear program (MINLP) that we solve through a solution technique based on the outer approximation method. Our solution technique cooptimizes real and reactive power scheduling and dispatch subject to both unit commitment constraints and ACOPF constraints. The proposed approach is a… CONTINUE READING
