Radial Distribution System Network Reconfiguration for Reduction in Real Power Loss and Improvement in Voltage Profile, and Reliability

S.S. Halve; S.S. Raghuwanshi; D. Sonje

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


  Distribution systems play a crucial role in delivering power to customers and bridging the gap between bulk power transmission and end-users. Increasing energy demand due to factors like industrial development and population growth necessitates efficient distribution system management. A low X/R ratio ...  Read More

A Resilience-Oriented Graph-Based Method for Restoration of Critical Loads in Distribution Networks Using Microgrids

M. Karimi; M. Eslamian

Volume 13, Issue 1 , January 2025, , Pages 99-109


  This paper presents a resilience-based approach for critical load restoration in distribution networks using microgrids during extreme events when the main supply is disrupted. Reconfiguration of the distribution network using graph theory is investigated, for which Dijkstra's algorithm is first used ...  Read More

Energy Management
A Comparative Study on Charging Time of Electric Vehicles Optimization Using Cuckoo Search and Particle Swarm Optimization Methods

S.M.H. Kamona; H.A. Abbas; A.A. Ibrahim; N.Q. Mohammed; A.A. Ali; B.A. Mohammed; M.S. Hamza

Volume 11, Special Issue , March 2023


  The implementation of electric vehicles for this specific purpose could potentially cause an impact on the load on the network. From one standpoint, it is more advantageous to initiate the charging process of electric vehicle batteries as soon as they are connected to the grid, in order to guarantee ...  Read More

Distribution Systems
A Bi-Level Optimization Approach for Optimal Operation of Distribution Networks with Retailers and Micro-grids

H. Fateh; A. Safari; S. Bahramara

Volume 8, Issue 1 , February 2020, , Pages 15-21


  Distributed energy resources (DERs) including distributed generators (DGs) and controllable loads (CLs) are managed in the form of several microgrids (MGs) in active distributions networks (ADNs) to meet the demand locally. On the other hand, some loads of distribution networks (DNs) can be supplied ...  Read More

Solving Multi-objective Optimal Power Flow Using Modified GA and PSO Based on Hybrid Algorithm

R. Effatnejad; H. Aliyari; M. Savaghebi

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2017, , Pages 51-60


  The Optimal Power Flow (OPF) is one of the most important issues in the power systems. Due to the complexity and discontinuity of some parameters of power systems, the classic mathematical methods are not proper for this problem. In this paper, the objective function of OPF is formulated to minimize ...  Read More

Power System Operation
Combined Economic Dispatch and Reliability in Power System by Using PSO-SIF Algorithm

E. Babaei; N. Ghorbani

Volume 3, Issue 1 , June 2015, , Pages 23-33

  Reliability investigation has always been one of the most important issues in power systems planning. The outages rate in power system reflects the fact that more attentions should be paid on reliability indices to supply consumers with uninterrupted power. Using reliability indices in economic dispatch ...  Read More

Combined Use of Sensitivity Analysis and Hybrid Wavelet-PSO- ANFIS to Improve Dynamic Performance of DFIG-Based Wind Generation

M. Darabian; A. Jalilvand; R. Noroozian

Volume 2, Issue 1 , June 2007, , Pages 60-73

  In the past few decades, increasing growth of wind power plants causes different problems for the power quality in the grid. Normal and transient impacts of these units on the power grid clearly indicate the need to improve the quality of the electricity generated by them in the design of such systems. ...  Read More
