Abstract

This paper provides a technical primer for the energy economist wishing to study the optimal power flow problem. The paper’s aims are to provide the reader with sufficient technical background sufficient to calculate power transfer distribution factors (PTDF’s, or network shift factors) for a more complicated model than the simple 3-node model common to energy economics studies and to understand the optimal power flow problem.
