Relationship between power loss and network topology in power systems
This paper is concerned with studying how the minimum power loss in a power system is related to its network topology. The existing algorithms in the literature all exploit nonlinear, heuristic, or local search algorithms to find the minimum power loss, which make them blind to the network topology. Given certain constraints on power level, bus voltages, etc., a linear-matrix-inequality (LMI) optimization problem is derived, which provides a lower bound on the minimum active loss in the network. The proposed LMI problem has the property that its objective function depends on the loads and its matrix inequality constraint is related to the topology of the power system. This property makes it possible to address many important power problems, such as the optimal network reconfiguration and the optimal placement/sizing of distributed generation units in power systems. Moreover, a condition is provided under which the solution of the given LMI problem is guaranteed to be exactly equal to t...
