Abstract-The OPF problem is discussed in detail in the literature. It is also explained how various methods and techniques can be used to solve it. Finally, a detailed illustration of the LP optimization tool is provided. The complexity of the OPF problem is immense. It involves the various design, planning, and operation problems related to power systems. This report aims to provide an overview of the LP optimization method and its various applications. FOR full AC Increment method. Furthermore, a conceptual review of reactive power pricing was presented, as well as a suggested approach for incorporating the cost function into the goal function. Finally, a quick representation of the toolbox PSAT Simulator was presented, as well as the implementation of both methods on the 6-bus test system using a systematic process, and a comparison of both approaches during the OPF, as well as before and after the inclusion of cost function.
