Optimal Allocation of Renewable Energy Sources to Enhance Distribution System Reliability with Confidence Interval Considerations

M. Hajibeigy; V. Talavat; S. Galvani

Articles in Press, Corrected Proof, Available Online from 12 May 2024


  Due to ever-increasing energy requirements, modern distribution systems are integrated with renewable energy sources (RESs), such as wind turbines and photovoltaics. They also bring economic, environmental, and technical advantages. However, they face the network operator with decision-making challenges ...  Read More

Stochastic Simultaneous Planning of Interruptible Loads, Renewable ‎Generations and Capacitors in Distribution Network ‎

J. Salehi; F.S. Gazijahani; A. Safari

Volume 10, Issue 2 , August 2022, , Pages 113-121


  Executing interruptible loads (ILs) can be significantly effective for optimal and secure operation of power systems. These ILs can aid the operators not only to increase the reliability of the power supply but also to reduce the procurement costs of the whole system. Therefore, determining the optimal ...  Read More

A. Lashkar Ara; H. Bagheri Tolabi; R. hosseini

Volume 4, Issue 2 , December 2016, , Pages 93-103

  In this paper, a combination of simulated annealing (SA) and intelligent water drops (IWD) algorithm is used to solve the nonlinear/complex problem of simultaneous reconfiguration with optimal allocation (size and location) of wind turbine (WT) as a distributed generation (DG) and dynamic voltage restorer ...  Read More

Novel Hybrid Fuzzy-Intelligent Water Drops Approach for Optimal Feeder Multi Objective Reconfiguration by Considering Multiple-Distributed Generation

H. Bagheri Tolabi; M. H. Ali; M. Rizwan

Volume 2, Issue 2 , December 2014, , Pages 91-102

  This paper presents a new hybrid method for optimal multi-objective reconfiguration in a distribution feeder in addition to determining the optimal size and location of multiple-Distributed Generation (DG). The purposes of this research are mitigation of losses, improving the voltage profile and equalizing ...  Read More

Reliability Assessment of Distribution Systems in Presence of Microgrids Considering Uncertainty in Generation and Load Demand

M. Allahnoori; Sh. Kazemi; H. Abdi; R. Keyhani

Volume 2, Issue 2 , December 2014, , Pages 113-120

  The microgrid concept provides attractive solutions for reliability enhancement of power distribution systems. Normally, microgrids contain renewable-energy-based Distributed Generation (DG) units, which their output power varies with different environmental conditions. In addition, load demand usually ...  Read More

Optimal Distribution System Reconfiguration Using Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm (NSGA-II)

J. Moshtagh; S. Ghasemi

Volume 1, Issue 1 , June 2013, , Pages 12-21

  In this paper, a Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm-II (NSGA-II) based approach is presented for distribution system reconfiguration. In contrast to the conventional GA based methods, the proposed approach does not require weighting factors for conversion of multi-objective function into an equivalent ...  Read More

Investigating Impacts of Sustainable Repair Time and Circuit Breaker Model on Meshed Distribution Networks Reliability Assessment

T. Barforoushi; M. Rasoulpoor

Volume 2, Issue 1 , June 2007, , Pages 40-48

  Generally, the failure rate and the repair time of system components are constant parameters in reliability assessment of electric distribution systems. A failure of component is resulted from failing in the operation or overloading. In addition, there exist cases where, the repair times of components ...  Read More
