Mathematical Models and Algorithms for Power System Optimization helps readers build a thorough understanding of new technologies and world-class practices developed by the State Grid Corporation of China, the organization responsible for the world's largest power distribution network. This reference covers three areas: power operation planning, electric grid investment and operational planning and power system control. It introduces economic dispatching, generator maintenance scheduling, power flow, optimal load flow, reactive power planning, load frequency control and transient stability, using mathematic models including optimization, dynamic, differential and difference equations.
- Provides insights on the development of new mathematical models of power system optimization
- Analyzes power systems comprehensively to create novel mathematic models and algorithms for issues related to the planning operation of power systems
- Includes research on the optimization of power systems and related practical research projects carried out since 1981

After completing his doctoral degree in China, Professor Fan was a visiting scholar first at Tampera Technology University in Finland, and then at Hiroshima University in Japan. After returning to China he worked for the China Electric Power Research Institute as an engineer and taught doctoral students in the fields of optimal distribution planning, optimal transmission planning and reliability evaluation. He has published papers with both the IEEE and JIEE.
His research focuses on mathematical modeling and algorithms for power system planning and operation, including economic dispatching, generator maintenance scheduling, load flow, optimal load flow, reactive power planning, load frequency control, and transient stability.
