Title: Distributed optimal power flow processes for unbalanced radial distribution networks

Abstract

Node controllers and power distribution networks in accordance with embodiments of the invention enable distributed power control on an unbalanced network. One embodiment includes a node controller including a distributed power control application; a plurality of node operating parameters describing the operating parameter of a node in an unbalanced network; wherein the processor is configured by the distributed power control application to: send node operating parameters to nodes in the set of at least one node; receive operating parameters from the nodes in the set of at least one node; calculate a plurality of updated node operating parameters using an iterative process to determine updated node operating parameters using the node operating parameters that describe the operating parameters of the node, and the operating parameters of the set of at least one node, where each iteration in the iterative process involves evaluation of a subproblem; and adjust node operating parameters.
