Numerical methods for power flow analysis in DC networks: State of the art, methods and challenges
This study addresses the power-flow-analysis problem for direct-current (DC) grids from a numerical perspective. Classical and emerging algorithms for power flow solutions in DC networks such as Gauss--Seidel, successive ...
A mixed-integer convex model for the optimal placement and sizing of distributed generators in power distribution networks
The optimal placement and sizing of distributed generators is a classical problem in power distribution networks that is usually solved using heuristic algorithms due to its high complexity. This paper proposes a different ...
Bilinear Control for Three-Phase Microgrids: A Proportional-Integral Passivity-Based Design
A bilinear PI control based on passivity theory for the adequate integration of distributed energy resources (DERs) in ac microgrids is presented in this paper. DERs are integrated into the grid by voltage source converters ...
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 ...
