Title

GPU-Accelerated Algorithm for On-Line Probabilistic Power Flow

Abstract

This letter proposes a superior GPU-accelerated algorithm for probabilistic power flow (PPF) based on Monte-Carlo simulation with simple random sampling (MCS-SRS). By means of offloading the tremendous computational burden to GPU, the algorithm can solve PPF in an extremely fast manner, two orders of magnitude faster in comparison to its CPU-based counterpart. Case studies on three large-scale systems show that the proposed algorithm can solve a whole PPF analysis with 10000 SRS and ultra-high-dimensional dependent uncertainty sources in seconds and therefore presents a highly promising solution for online PPF applications.
