On the convergence of the power flow methods for DC networks with mesh and radial structures
The convergence analysis of the power flow methodologies for direct current (dc) electrical networks is addressed in this paper. The Banach fixed-point theorem is employed to prove the convergence and uniqueness in the ...
A New Iterative Power Flow Method for AC Distribution Grids with Radial and Mesh Topologies
This brief discusses the classical problem of power flow analysis in alternating current (ac) distribution networks through Taylor series expansion. The main advantage of this approach is that it can work with radial and ...
Hybrid ga-socp approach for placement and sizing of distributed generators in DC networks
This research addresses the problem of the optimal location and sizing distributed generators (DGs) in direct current (DC) distribution networks from the combinatorial optimization. It is proposed a master–slave optimization ...
On the mathematical modeling for optimal selecting of calibers of conductors in DC radial distribution networks: An MINLP approach
This paper addresses the problem of optimal conductor selection in direct current (DC) distribution networks with radial topology. A nonlinear mixed-integer programming model (MINLP) is developed through a branch-to-node ...
Optimal Location and Sizing of DGs in DC Networks Using a Hybrid Methodology Based on the PPBIL Algorithm and the VSA
In this paper, we propose a master–slave methodology to address the problem of optimal integration (location and sizing) of Distributed Generators (DGs) in Direct Current (DC) networks. This proposed methodology employs a ...
