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 ...
Improving the grid operation and reliability cost of distribution systems with dispersed generation
In this work, a mathematical model to analyze the impact of the installation and operation of dispersed generation units in power distribution systems is proposed. The main focus is to determine the trade-off between the ...
A proposal for reliability evaluation of components on electric power distribution system integrating probabilistic models and fuzzy inference systems
The system reliability depends on the reliability of its components itself. Therefore, it is necessary a methodology capable of inferring the state of functionality of these components to establish reliable indices of ...
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 ...
Placement and sizing evaluation of distributed generation in electric power systems
This paper presents a methodology for the placement and sizing evaluation of distributed generation (DG) in electric power systems. The candidate locations for DG placement are identified on the bases of Locational Marginal ...
A set of linear equations to calculate the steady-state operation of an electrical distribution system
In this paper, the calculation of the steady-state operation of a radial/meshed electrical distribution system (EDS) through solving a system of linear equations (non-iterative load flow) is presented. The constant power ...
