Formulating Connectedness in Security-Constrained Optimal Transmission Switching Problems

6 Feb 2022  ·  Tong Han, David J. Hill, Yue Song ·

This paper focuses on the issue of network connectedness (NC) in security-constrained optimal transmission switching problems, which is complicated by branch contingencies and corrective line switching. Two criteria are firstly proposed with the principle of preserving NC as much as possible within reasonable limits. By extending the electrical flow based NC constraints, a proposition is derived to associate different cases of NC with the optimum of a linear program, yielding the mathematical formulation of the NC criteria. By Karush-Kuhn-Tucker conditions, this formulation is further transformed into a tractable version which can be incorporated with existing SCOTS models without affecting the applicability of original solution approaches. Finally, case studies on various networks and SCOTS models demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed approach.
