Distributed generation impact evaluation using a multi-objective tabu search
Distribution networks paradigm is changing currently requiring improved methodologies and tools for network analysis and planning. A relevant issue is analyzing the impact of the Distributed Generation penetration in passive ...
Integrated planning of electric power distribution networks
In this work, a heuristic model for integrated planning of primary distribution network and secondary distribution circuits is proposed. A Tabu Search (TS) algorithm is employed to solve the planning of primary distribution ...
Network reconfiguration of distribution systems using metaheuristics and reliability measures
In an evermore competitive environment, power distribution companies need to continuously monitor and improve the reliability indices of their systems. The network reconfiguration (NR) of a distribution system is a technique ...
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 ...
Optimal contract pricing of distributed generation under a competitive framework
A bilevel programming approach for the optimal contract pricing of distributed generation (DG) in distribution networks is presented. The outer optimization problem corresponds to the owner of the DG who must decide the ...
On the efficiency of an alternative codification for multiobjective service restoration in electric distribution networks
This paper proposes an alternative codification to solve the service restoration in electric power distribution networks using a SPEA2 multiobjective evolutionary algorithm, assuming the minimization of both the load not ...
