Reduction of losses and operating costs in distribution networks using a genetic algorithm and mathematical optimization
This study deals with the minimization of the operational and investment cost in the distribution and operation of the power flow considering the installation of fixed-step capacitor banks. This issue is represented by a ...
Accurate and efficient derivative-free three-phase power flow method for unbalanced distribution networks
The power flow problem in three-phase unbalanced distribution networks is addressed in this research using a derivative-free numerical method based on the upper-triangular matrix. The upper-triangular matrix is obtained ...
Application of the vortex search algorithm to the phase-balancing problem in distribution systems
This article discusses the problem of minimizing power loss in unbalanced distribution systems through phase-balancing. This problem is represented by a mixed-integer nonlinear-programming mathematical model, which is ...
Heuristic Methodology for Planning AC Rural Medium-Voltage Distribution Grids
The optimal expansion of AC medium-voltage distribution grids for rural applications is addressed in this study from a heuristic perspective. The optimal routes of a distribution feeder are selected by applying the concept ...
Genetic-convex model for dynamic reactive power compensation in distribution networks using D-STATCOMs
This paper proposes a new hybrid master–slave optimization approach to address the problem of the optimal placement and sizing of distribution static compensators (D-STATCOMs) in electrical distribution grids. The optimal ...
