This paper presents an algorithm for the parallel solution of the security constrained optimal-power flow (SCOPF) problem using an asynchronous programming model. In addition to the increased efficiency, the proposed model allows for the development of applications that can be ported among different parallel computer architectures in a nearly transparent way and without significant loss of computing efficiency. The initial implementation of the approach was made on a 9-processor shared-memory parallel computer; subsequently, the system has been ported to a 64-processor distributed-memory parallel machine. The paper summarizes the results obtained in tests performed with two real-life systems: a network formed by 735 buses, 1212 branches and 76 adjustable power generators (900 contingencies); and a network with 1663 buses, 2349 branches and 99 adjustable generators (1555 contingencies)
