The OPF problem was defined in the early 1960's as an extension of conventional economic dispatch to determine the optimal settings for control variables in a power network respecting various constraints. OPF is a static constrained nonlinear optimization problem, whose development has followed closely advances in numerical optimization techniques and computer technology. Commercially available OPF software can solve very large and complex formulations in relatively short time.
