Optimal Scheduling of Battery Energy Storage System in Distribution Network Considering Uncertainties using hybrid Monte Carlo- Genetic Approach

R. Afshan; J. Salehi

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2018, , Pages 1-12


  This paper proposes a novel hybrid Monte Carlo simulation-genetic approach (MCS-GA) for optimal operation of a distribution network considering renewable energy generation systems (REGSs) and battery energy storage systems (BESSs). The aim of this paper is to design an optimal charging /discharging scheduling ...  Read More

Probabilistic Power Distribution Planning Using Multi-Objective Harmony Search Algorithm

A. Rastgou; J. Moshtagh; S. Bahramara

Volume 6, Issue 1 , June 2018, , Pages 111-125


  In this paper, power distribution planning (PDP) considering distributed generators (DGs) is investigated as a dynamic multi-objective optimization problem. Moreover, Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) is applied to handle the uncertainty in electricity price and load demand. In the proposed model, investment ...  Read More

Clean and Polluting DG Types Planning in Stochastic Price Conditions and DG Unit Uncertainties

M. Sadeghi; M. Kalantar

Volume 4, Issue 1 , June 2016, , Pages 1-15

  This study presents a dynamic way in a DG planning problem instead of the last static or pseudo-dynamic planning point of views. A new way in modeling the DG units’ output power and the load uncertainties based on the probability rules is proposed in this paper. A sensitivity analysis on the stochastic ...  Read More

Probabilistic Multi Objective Optimal Reactive Power Dispatch Considering Load Uncertainties Using Monte Carlo Simulations

S.M. Mohseni-Bonab; A. Rabiee; S. Jalilzadeh; B. Mohammadi-Ivatloo; S. Nojavan

Volume 3, Issue 1 , June 2015, , Pages 83-93

  Optimal Reactive Power Dispatch (ORPD) is a multi-variable problem with nonlinear constraints and continuous/discrete decision variables. Due to the stochastic behavior of loads, the ORPD requires a probabilistic mathematical model. In this paper, Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS) is used for modeling of ...  Read More

Application of Stochastic Programming to Determine Operating Reserves with Considering Wind and Load Uncertainties

K. Afshar; A. Shokri Gazafroudi

Volume 1, Issue 2 , November 2013, , Pages 96-109

  Wind power generation is variable and uncertain. In the power systems with high penetration of wind power, determination of equivalent operating reserve is the main concern of systems operator. In this paper, a model is proposed to determine operating reserves in simultaneous market clearing of energy ...  Read More
