This paper presents the use of a new Association Profile technique for the reduction of the problem space for the optimization of the operating point of a power system. The motivation for this technique is demonstrated in the in-feasibility of the direct application of `classical' techniques due to inordinate computational load. The important advantages of the proposed method are the preservation of the order and non-linear nature of the system model during the optimization process, and the execution speed. A number of methods for generating Association Profiles are presented and discussed. Results are based on a 20 machine, 100 bus-bar reduction of the U.K. National Grid system.
