Abstract

The increased utilization of electrical energy in future aviation requires an efficient method to perform load flow for optimizing on-board operating conditions. Load flow models of electrical networks are complex to solve and requires iterative methods to obtain a solution due to the non-linear relationship between voltages and currents. This paper will address the complexity of load flow for DC systems and will present a linear model that does not require to be solved iteratively and can be included in Mixed Integer Linear Programming MILP formulations to allow operational metrics optimization such as loss minimization and reliability maximization while converging to optimality. Load flow results have shown that the error margin is considerably small.
