Integration of the dispersed generators in the distribution management system
Since the 80s huge efforts have been made to utilize renewable energy sources to generate electric power. An important issue about using renewable energy sources is a Distribution Management System (DMS) in presence of ...
Harmonic propagation analysis in electric energy distribution systems
An important alteration of the equivalent loads profile has been observed in the electrical energy distribution systems, for the last years. Such fact is due to the significant increment of the electronic processors of ...
Optimization of the Topology of Electric Energy Distribution Networks by Using Algorithm Inspired on Ant Behaviors
(IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 2009)
An algorithm inspired on ant behavior is developed in order to find out the topology of an electric energy distribution network with minimum power loss. The algorithm performance is investigated in hypothetical and actual ...
Planning of secondary distribution circuits through evolutionary algorithms
In this work, the planning of secondary distribution circuits is approached as a mixed integer nonlinear programming problem (MINLP). In order to solve this problem, a dedicated evolutionary algorithm (EA) is proposed. ...
Minimal cross-subsidies approach for loss allocation in distribution networks with open access
Open access philosophy applied by regulatory agencies may lead to a scenario where captive consumers will solely face the responsibility on distribution network's losses even with Independent Energy Producers (also known ...
Investigation into the impact of embedded generators on distribution system performance using theorem of superposition
Since the 1980s, huge efforts have been made to utilise renewable energy sources to generate electric power. One of the interesting issues about embedded generators is the question of optimal placement and sizing of the ...
