This two-part paper presents a framework for the characterization and minimal representation of the feasibility regions of power systems in the demand space....

BibTeX reference
and

The first part of this two-part paper developed the framework for characterizing the feasibility regions of power systems in the demand space. This character...

BibTeX reference
