Distribution Systems
A Customer Oriented Approach for Distribution System Reliability Improvement Using Optimal Distributed Generation and Switch Placement

P. Salyani; J. Salehi

Volume 7, Issue 2 , October 2019, , Pages 246-260

https://doi.org/10.22098/joape.2019.5244.1390

Abstract
  The reliability of distribution networks is inherently low due to their radial nature, consequently distribution companies (DisCos) usually seek to improve the system reliability indices with the minimum possible investment cost. This can be known as system-oriented reliability planning (SORP). However, ...  Read More

Reliability and Supply Security based Method for Simultaneous Placement of Sectionalizer Switch and DER Units

B. Mohammadzadeh; A. Safari; S. Najafi Ravadanegh

Volume 4, Issue 2 , December 2016, , Pages 165-174

Abstract
  This paper presents a new and useful methodology for simultaneous allocation of sectionalizer switches and distributed energy resources (DERs) considering both reliability and supply security aspects. The proposed algorithm defines the proper locations of sectionalizer switching devices in radial distribution ...  Read More
