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

Optimal Power Flow in the Smart Grid Using Direct Load Control Program

Soheil Derafshi Beigvand; Hamdi Abdi,

Volume 3, Issue 2 , December 2015, , Pages 102-115

  This paper proposes an Optimal Power Flow (OPF) algorithm by Direct Load Control (DLC) programs to optimize the operational cost of smart grids considering various scenarios based on different constraints. The cost function includes active power production cost of available power sources and a novel ...  Read More

STATCOM Optimal Allocation in Transmission Grids Considering Contingency Analysis in OPF Using BF-PSO Algorithm

R. Kazemzadeh; M. Moazen; R. Ajabi-Farshbaf; M. Vatanpour

Volume 1, Issue 1 , June 2013, , Pages 1-11

  In this paper, a combinational optimization algorithm is introduced to obtain the best size and location of Static Compensator (STATCOM) in power systems. Its main contribution is considering contingency analysis where lines outages may lead to infeasible solutions especially at peak loads and it commonly ...  Read More
