Optimal Power Flow: Comparison with Matpower

Back to Optimal Power Flow main page.

Comparing the performance of Matpower with our Polar ACOPF model (both using IPOPT with linear solver MA27) with standard options, we find that our model, although slightly slower, has very comparable time performance statistics to Matpower. The table below displays the real time (in seconds) it takes to converge to objective values within numerical tolerances of each other.

Electricity and Power

The Optimal Power Flow (OPF) model represents the problem of determining the best operating levels for electric power plants in order to meet demands given throughout a transmission network, usually with the objective of minimizing operating cost.
