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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
Investigating effects of neutral wire and grounding in distribution systems with faults
In some applications like fault analysis, fault location, power quality studies, safety analysis, loss analysis, etc., knowing the neutral wire and ground currents and voltages could be of particular interest. In order to ...
Network reconfiguration and loss allocation for distribution systems with distributed generation
Distribution systems with distributed generation require new analysis methods since networks are not longer passive. Two of the main problems in this new scenario are the network reconfiguration and the loss allocation. ...
Optimal charging of electric vehicles considering constraints of the medium voltage distribution network
The scope of this work is to optimize the charging of electric vehicles (EVs) in a controlled environment. The method uses a linear optimization technique, which determines the electrical power that will be delivered to ...
