In this paper, we propose a combined Online Feedback Optimization (OFO) and dynamic estimation approach for a real-time power grid operation under time-varying conditions. A dynamic estimation uses grid measurements to generate the information required by an OFO controller, that incrementally steers the controllable power injections set-points towards the solutions of a time-varying AC Optimal Power Flow (AC-OPF) problem. More concretely, we propose a quadratic programming-based OFO that guarantees satisfying the grid operational constraints, like admissible voltage limits. Within the estimation, we design an online power flow solver that efficiently computes power flow approximations in real time. Finally, we certify the stability and convergence of this combined approach under time-varying conditions, and we validate its effectiveness on a simulation with a test feeder and high resolution consumption data.
