### Proposal "OVER"-Draft

- Generator Unit Commitment
- Load Shedding
- Corrective measures
- Compensators - shunt & series compensators or combined
- Pre & Post Contingencies
- Thermal limitations
- Formulate EXPRESSION FOR THE ABOVE!!!
- FACTS device - voltage control
- Write basic manual on MATLAB
- TIMELINE

**Overall Operation Summary**

Given load demand from forecast assumed to be given. Then estimate active-power of generators schedule?? (Or is schedule given??)

Form Y-bus matrix and nodal voltages.

Use Newton-Raphson Method.

Form Jacobian matrix.

Calculate nodal currents using I = YV

Form residuals for all nodes & assemble vector of residuals f(x)

Check whether residual values exceed tolerance pre-set

If it does exceed, enter Jacobian matrix element values to give J(x)

Solve for real and imaginary parts of nodal voltages in vector x using equation 2.59 (from “Computer Applications in Power”) from the solution vector x form the vector of complex nodal voltages V.

Iterate process until all residual values do not exceed pre-set tolerance.

Upon convergence, NR method will determine the nodal voltages in terms of x vector.

Active and reactive power flows can be evaluated directly from nodal voltages and branch parameters using the network branch equivalent circuit.

OPF with security constraints

Specify equality and inequality constraints.

Take into account network system losses.

Minimisation procedure

Assemble vector u, the active-powers of generators excluding that of the generation at the slack node.’

Assemble nodal voltage vector, x

Form composite vector y from u and x. Form f(y).

Mismatch in power at network nodes

Form residual vector g(y)=0 (this is the equality constraint)

Minimise objective function f(y) subject to g(y)Obtain Jacobian matrix of g(y) with respect to y

Obtain necessary conditions for a minimum

Use NR method to solve for these conditions.

Taking into account constraints, we solve for y.

- Produce timeline
- Propose different security constraints
- Review overall procedure of OPF
