Résumé: The Optimal Power Flow (OPF) problem consists in finding the best way to produce and drive power from producers to consumers in an electrical transmission network. It can be modeled as a continuous non convex and quadratically constrained quadratic program (QCQP). Our purpose is to solve (OPF) to global optimality. To this end, we propose reformulating the problem and then solving it by a branch-and-bound algorithm. We are interested in finding the best reformulation in terms of maximizing the bound at the root node of the branch-and-bound tree. We demonstrate that such a reformulation can be built using the solution of a semi-definite program.
