Using the solver SDPT3 with PowerModels.jl

Hello

I’m trying to use the solver SDPT3 for solving a SDP problem using the library PowerModels.jl that utilizes JuMP, the error that I get is

julia> test=run_opf(“case3_SDP.m”,SDPWRMPowerModel,solver4)
┌ Warning: MathOptInterface.VariablePrimalStart() is not supported by MathOptInterface.Bridges.LazyBridgeOptimizer{SDPT3.Optimizer}. This information will be discarded.

I would appreciate your help in this regard

Please open an issue with a reproducible example: Issues · jump-dev/SDPT3.jl · GitHub

I’d regard SDPT3.jl support as still experimental. It hasn’t seen much development.

It does not seem to be an issue with SDPT3. It seems PowerModels is providing a function with a non-zero constant. Maybe open an issue in PowerModels ? See Constraints · MathOptInterface

By convention, solvers are not expected to support nonzero constant terms in the ScalarAffineFunction s

I don’t think PowerModels calls MOI directly? So this seems like a problem elsewhere.

I can confirm that PowerModels does not call MOI directly. PowerModels SDP formulations are tested with SCS, with no known issues that the moment. So I would suspect the issue is in the solver interface.

This issue with using Mosek with PowerModels has also been noted. Maybe these two points are related?

If there is a possibility that the problem is with the JuMP model formulation side let me know and I can help with that aspect.
