Publisher and Date:(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2019)Increasing penetration of distributed energy resources (DERs) have brought operational and control philosophy changes in Smart Grids (SGs). Renewable energy based technologies are becoming more important due to their economic and environmental impacts. Distributed generations (DGs) in the form of small renewable energy resources such as solar photovoltaics (PVs) and Wind Turbines (WTs) are connected in radial distribution networks near to the loads. This paper presents optimal siting and sizing ...
Optimal Allocation Of Multi-Type Distributed Generators For Minimization Of Power Losses In Distribution Systems Authors:Ahmadi, Bahman; Ceylan, Oğuzhan; Özdemir, Aydoğan
Publisher and Date:(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2019)Distributed generation (DG), including photovoltaics (PVs), wind turbines (WTs) are becoming vital for Active Distribution Networks (ADN). Therefore, optimal sizing and allocation of these units can improve voltage profiles and reduce active power losses. This study concentrates on optimal allocation and sizing of two kinds of DG units (PVs and WTs) with 1 MW maximum size limits, due to the regulations in Turkey. The Whale optimization algorithm (WOA) and Grey wolf optimization algorithm (GWO) are ...
