An important problem in power system operation is to determine the operating reserve in order to reduce the risk of not supplying the load in consequence of contingencies. In literature the so-called well being model has been suggested to solve it. In the paper a genetic algorithm is used to overcome the computational burden due to the model complexity and to find the optimal solution. The results obtained on a test system show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
