Here is the constraint:

$$\text{Pa} + \text{Pb}=a + b \sqrt{\text{Ir}^2 +\text{Ii}^2} + c (\text{Ir}^2 +\text{Ii}^2)$$

Here $\text{Pa}, \text{Pb}, \text{Ir},$ and $\text{Ii}$ are variables. $a, b, c$ are given parameters.

$\text{Pa} >0$, $\text{Pb}>0$, $-\text{Imax} \leq \text{Ir} \leq \text{Imax}$, and $-\text{Imax} \leq \text{Ii} \leq \text{Imax}$

    $\begingroup$ Are $Ir$ and $Ii$ real variables? If real, then where is the square root of a complex number? If complex, what do you mean by the bound constraints on $Ir$ and $Ii$? $\endgroup$ Dec 5, 2022 at 1:56
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for bringing that up, $Ir$ and $Ii$ are real variables with bounds, I have corrected my questions. $\endgroup$ Dec 5, 2022 at 3:07
