Impacts of Load and Generation Volatilities on the Voltage Profiles Improved by Distributed Energy Resources Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2020)Weather-dependent distributed renewable energy sources such as photovoltaics (PVs) and wind turbines (WT) are increasingly being connected to distribution networks (DNs). Increased penetration of these intermittent sources brought the necessity of using energy storage systems (ESSs) to achieve the intended benefits. This study presents an optimization process to determine optimal numbers, sizes, locations and distributed energy resources (DERs) as well as to determine the optimal operating strategy ...
Optimal Allocation Of Multi-Type Distributed Generators For Minimization Of Power Losses In Distribution Systems Authors:
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 ...
Publisher and Date:(WILEY, 2021)Utilizing waste-to-energy (WtE) technologies is becoming crucial in today's world where energy sources are scarce. Despite the fact that WtE technologies (incineration, gasification, pyrolysis, anaerobic digestion, and landfill gas recovery) have been analyzed thoroughly in the literature regarding their efficiency rates in treating waste, the applicability of each method to different waste compositions and in various economic environments has not been considered before. In this study, this issue ...
Voltage Profile Improving and Peak Shaving Using Multi-type Distributed Generators and Battery Energy Storage Systems in Distribution Networks Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2020)Optimal sizing and siting of distributed generation (DG) units play an important role for improving voltage profile and reducing power losses. Moreover, battery energy storage system (BESS) units may help peak shaving. This paper presents a two stage approach, first of which aims optimal DG unit allocation, and second aims to determine optimal location and operation of BESS units. The problem formulation adopted due to the regulations in Turkey that supports DG units (Photovoltaics-PVs and Wind ...
