Application of polynomial optimization to electricity transmission networks

Abstract : Transmission system operators need to adapt their decision-making tools to the technological evolutions of the twenty first century. A computation inherent to most tools seeks to find alternating-current power flows that minimize power loss or generation cost. Mathematically, it consists in an optimization problem that can be described using only addition and multiplication of complex numbers. The objective of this thesis is to find global solutions, in other words the best solutions to the problem. One of the outcomes of this highly collaborative doctoral project is to use recent results from algebraic geometry to compute globally optimal power flows in the European high-voltage transmission network.
