Does anyone have any tips that would help make optimal power flow produce more realistic flows and loading? How do you do a sanity check on your optimal power flow solution?

Here's my experience with OPF in PSS/E.

I was optimizing the shunt capacitor size and location. In OPF, I defined the candidate buses with base case plus contingencies. When OPF provided the shunt compensation location and size, I simulated the case with the shunt capacitor in place and applied the contingencies, if any, and see if the voltages would be at acceptable magnitudes per criteria.

This is a good check if the OPF "really" gave the optimal capacitor size and location.

@EBC can you give us a peep at your code?

amaity, I don't have a python code on this strategy...I'm sorry...usually I have an idev or python recorded but I don't have those now when I resigned from PTI...thanks.

If i dont want to use any python routine then what would be the strategy to find optiml power flow n PSSE. When I solve myt case withOPF,the solution case was blown up.

@EBC how OPF provide the optimal size and location for compensation? there is a special code for this?
