This paper proposes an approach for optimal power flow considering several contingency states. Initially, contingency selection is conducted to measure how much a specific contingency may affect the operation cost. Then, some severe contingencies are incorporated into optimal power flow problem. All considered states, normal and contingency states, are simulated simultaneously. Thus, if contingency occurs, it can be ensured that all constraints such as generation limit, transmission limit and ramp rate will be satisfied. To solve the problem, quadratic programming is applied. IEEE 30 bus system is used as test system to show the ability of the proposed approach.
