Customer reliability improvement and power loss reduction in distribution systems using distributed generations


Distributed Generations (DGs) because owning many advantages, exist in distribution systems and are installed by either the utilities or the customers. In this paper, a study on reliability of customers and power loss reduction as the two most important aspects of both customers and utilities will be studied. Problem formulation includes several and in contrast to each other individual objectives, hence an optimization algorithm, here dynamic adaptation of particle swarm optimization (DAPSO) was used to allocate multi-DG units in radial distribution systems. To verify the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm in finding best solutions, IEEE 33 bus standard system and a practical system of Tehran (Afsarie)-22 bus are selected as the test systems.
Keywords: Customer reliability, Dynamic adaptation of particle swarm optimization, Distributed generation, Power loss, Radial distribution system.
