On the Conic Convex Approximation to Locate and Size Fixed-Step Capacitor Banks in Distribution Networks
The problem of the optimal siting and sizing of fixed-step capacitor banks is studied in this research from the standpoint of convex optimization. This problem is formulated through a mixed-integer nonlinear programming ...
Optimal Integration of Dispersed Generation in Medium-Voltage Distribution Networks for Voltage Stability Enhancement
: This study addresses the problem of the maximization of the voltage stability index (λcoefficient) in medium-voltage distribution networks considering the optimal placement and sizing of dispersed generators. The problem ...
Hierarchical Control for DC Microgrids Using an Exact Feedback Controller with Integral Action
This paper addresses the problem of the optimal stabilization of DC microgrids using a hierarchical control design. A recursive optimal power flow formulation is proposed in the tertiary stage that ensures the global ...
Optimal Design of PV Systems in Electrical Distribution Networks by Minimizing the Annual Equivalent Operative Costs through the Discrete-Continuous Vortex Search Algorithm
: This paper discusses the minimization of the total annual operative cost for a planning period of 20 years composed by the annualized costs of the energy purchasing at the substation bus summed with the annualized ...
