Title

Optimal Selection of Phase Shifting Transformer Adjustment in Optimal Power Flow

Abstract

Phase shifting transformers (PSTs) can be regulated to minimize total generation cost in optimal power flow problems. Under the perception that there exists multiple optimal solutions of PST angle adjustment and better economy may be achieved by controlling a small fraction of PSTs, this letter proposes a mixed integer linear programing model to optimally determine the subset of PSTs for angle adjustment. Numerical results on several test systems including large-scale systems show that the proposed model can provide better economic dispatch with regulating a small number of PSTs.
