rough formulation of the optimal power ﬂow problem and on techniques which lend themselves to an application of proven optimization methods. Power ﬂow simulation of an electrical power transmission system This subsection discusses brieﬂy the basics for the simulation of an electrical power transmission system on a digital computer. Quantitative models and mathematical tools such as linear programming allows for better result. We can use modern computing equipment for this purpose. Nowadays various problems of operational planning for transportation problems are solved by mathematical methods. Linear programming method is used to model most of these transportation problems. Monte Carlo methods, or Monte Carlo experiments, are a broad class of computational algorithms that rely on repeated random sampling to obtain numerical results. The underlying concept is to use randomness to solve problems that might be deterministic in principle. They are often used in physical and mathematical problems and are most useful when it is difficult or impossible to use other.
