Abstract: The presence of uncertain parameters in electrical power systems presents an ongoing problem for system operators and other stakeholders when it comes to making decisions.Determining the most appropriate dispatch schedule or system configuration relies heavily on forecasts for a number of parameters such as demand, generator availability and more recently weather. These uncertain parameters present an even more compelling problem at the distribution level, as these networks are inherently unbalanced, and need to be represented as such for certain tasks. The work in this paper presents an information gap decision theory based three-phase optimal power flow. Assuming that the demand is uncertain, the aim is to provide optimal and robust tap setting and switch decisions over a 24-hour period,while ensuring that the network is operated safely, and that losses are kept within an acceptable range. The formulation is tested on a section of realistic low voltage distribution network with switches and tap changers present.
