Optimization Criteria

Optimization Criteria

A good plan will optimize certain parameters under the constraints. Naturally, breakdown costs should be minimized, i.e., as much load as possible should be resupplied as fast as possible, with priority being given to critical consumers. Ideally the number of switching operations should also be optimized, so as to stay close to the configuration in which the network is normally exploited (called the normal configuration), and power margins of circuit breakers should be balanced in anticipation of the next load peak.

 

We consider two alternative models for the cost of a plan: one in which the cost only depends on the final state of the plan, and the other in which intermediate states also have costs, making PSR a true sequential optimization problem. We start by defining the various criteria relevant to the cost of state, and then use them to define the cost of a plan under the two models.
