Distribution Systems Optimization with Computational Intelligence Algorithms
MetadataShow full item record
A dual particle swarm optimization - immune algorithm solution is presented in this paper to deal with the problem of optimum radial reconfiguration and reactive power compensation in distribution systems. The optimization problem uses as minimization function power losses in the distribution system – lines and transformers – and addresses constraints referring lower and upper voltage limits, nodal reactive power limits, topology supply constraints and the maximum number of capacitor banks. The analysis conducted for a pilot and a complex test system has proven the feasibility of the proposed method.
