Power flow optimization is generally nonlinear and non-convex, and a second-order cone relaxation has been proposed recently for convexification. We prove several sufficient conditions under which the relaxation is exact. One of these conditions seems particularly realistic and suggests guidelines on integrating distributed generations.
