As the power grid networks become more granulated and smarter, their operation and control are becoming even more challenging due to the size of the underling mathematical problems that need to be solved in various power systems analysis tools. This means that there is a need for the modification of existing algorithms to adapt to the new environment. As the optimal power flow (OPF) presents one of the main tools used in power system operation and control, and the Interior Point Method (IPM) is becoming one of the most frequently used OPF solution algorithm, this poster describes ways in which High Performance Computing (HPC) can be used to improve the performances of the IPM application to the OPF.
