FERC, Increasing Market and Planning Efficiency Through Improved Software and Hardware - Enhanced optimal power flow models (Washington, DC), 3rd in a series of 3 conferences. (Multiple presentations available.) This conference focused on improving dispatch of generation assets, integration of variable energy resources and demand resources (DR, DG, and storage), utilization of flexible transmission assets, and incentives for efficient transmission and generation investment through the development of a large-scale AC optimal power flow (AC OPF) model with sufficient usability and speed to facilitate better unit-commitment and real-time dispatch, including the optimal dispatch and pricing of reactive power from generators, transmission assets and load. Development of an AC power system test bed to benchmark the speed of solution techniques was also discussed.
