PROJECT TITLE :
Energy Loss Minimization in Distribution Systems Utilizing an Enhanced Reconfiguration Method Integrating Distributed Generation
Different varieties of distributed generation (DG) are broadly used and optimally placed during a distribution system to enhance its performance. Since the network configuration affects the system operational conditions, the network reconfiguration and DG placement should be manipulated simultaneously. Nevertheless, the complexity of the problem might forestall from achieving the optimal solution. This paper presents a completely unique hybrid methodology of metaheuristic and heuristic algorithms, in order to spice up robustness and shorten the computational runtime to achieve network minimum loss configuration in the presence of DGs. The developed backward/forward power flow is adopted to contemplate the PV(Q) model of DG. Moreover, totally different patterns of load types are taken into consideration to perform a practical study. To assess the capabilities of the proposed methodology, simulations are allotted on IEEE 33-bus and eighty three-bus practical distribution network of Taiwan Power Company. Furthermore, the proposed technique is applied to a thirty three-bus unbalanced distribution network to verify its applicability in unbalanced distribution systems. The obtained results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed technique to search out optimal standing of switches, and locations and sizes of DG units, in a rather shorter time than different approaches within the literature.
