An Optimal Power Flow study employs techniques to solve the load flow equations while optimizing the operating conditions within a specified set of constraints. The objectives of the study are: to minimize the system real and reactive power losses, minimize generation fuel costs, maximize system performance, optimize power exchange between sub-grids (embedded generation, transfer points with other utilities, wholesale power points), and optimize capacitor placement, among other things. This study allows a utility to keep costs down for customers while maximizing the useful life of fixed assets. Most utilities will see a return on investment within two years.
