In this paper, we propose a method to solve the distributed optimal power flow problem and discuss the associated implementation. We have combined this method with a projected Jacobi (PJ) method and a modified parallel block scaled gradient (MPBSG) method possessing decomposition effects. With the decomposition, our method can be parallel processed and is computationally efficient. We have tested our method for distributed OPF problems on numerous power systems. As seen from the simulation results, our method achieved a dramatic speed-up ratio compared with the commercial IMSL subroutines.
