The Optimal Power Flow Calculation of Power System Based on the Annealing Algorithm


The result of OPF whose task is to compute the voltage and angle of each node in power system is the basic of stability calculation and failure analysis in power system. For this goal, the idea of simulated annealing method is introduced, mixed with the greedy randomized algorithm (GRASP), and then the hybrid SA algorithm is obtained. The algorithm is applied to the multi-objective optimal power flow calculation of power system, and the effectiveness of the algorithm given in this paper is verified by analysis of examples.
