Mathematical Programming for Power Systems
Powertools is a c++ library for modeling and solving optimization problems in Power Systems.
It features a full-scale modeling langage, with optimized functions' evaluation and derivatives computing.
Powertools includes a mixed-integer nonlinear solver based on open-source code. It also links to various existing commerical and academic solvers, and implements stat-of-the-art models for the Alternating Current Optimal Power Flow Problem (ACOPF) and its line switching extension (ACOTS).
Powertools features advanced optimization techniques such as smart on/off constraint modeling, automatic function convexification, outer-approximation and bounds propagation.

See INSTALL.md for instructions on compiling PowerTools
After running make, the PowerTools executable can be found under PowerTools/bin/
To run PowerTools, enter: PowerTools filename [ACPOL/ACRECT/SOCP/DC/OTS/SOCP_OTS] [ipopt/gurobi]
ACPOL = Polar ACOPF
ACRECT = Rectangular ACOPF
SOCP = Second-Order Cone relaxation
DC = DCOPF approximation
OTS = Optimal Transmission Switching
SOCP_OTS = Second-Order Cone relaxation for the Optimal Transmission Switching problem
