Accelerating the Composite Power System Planning by Benders Decomposition

Behnam Alizadeh; Shahram Jadid

Volume 2, Issue 1 , June 2007, Pages 1-9

  This paper presents an application of Benders decomposition to deal with the complexities in the simultaneous Generation Expansion Planning (GEP) and Transmission Expansion Planning (TEP). Unlike the power system operation fields of study, the power system planning methods are not expected to be fast. ...  Read More

A Hybrid Algorithm for Optimal Location and Sizing of Capacitors in the presence of Different Load Models in Distribution Network

R. Baghipour; S.M. Hosseini

Volume 2, Issue 1 , June 2007, Pages 10-21

  In practical situations, distribution network loads are the mixtures of residential, industrial, and commercial types. This paper presents a hybrid optimization algorithm for the optimal placement of shunt capacitor banks in radial distribution networks in the presence of different voltage-dependent ...  Read More

An Improved Under-Frequency Load Shedding Scheme in Distribution Networks with Distributed Generation

Behnam Mohammadi-Ivatloo; A. Mokari; H. Seyedi; S. Ghasemzadeh

Volume 2, Issue 1 , June 2007, Pages 22-31

  When a distribution network consisting of Distributed Generations (DGs) is disconnected from upstream network, the system may be exposed to severe power imbalance. In order to prevent the damage of power plants, frequency relays operate and remove DGs from the network. In contrast to traditional methods, ...  Read More

Presenting a New Method Based on Branch Placement for Optimal Placement of Phasor Measurement Units

K. Mazlumi; M. Mohammad Gholiha1; R. Abbasi; F. Mazlumi

Volume 2, Issue 1 , June 2007, Pages 32-39

  In this paper, a new method based on branch placement for the optimal positioning of Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs) in power systems is proposed. In this method, the PMUs are in type of single-channel and are installed at the beginning of the branches. Therefore, they are able to measure the bus voltages. ...  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

A Multi-Objective Economic Load Dispatch Considering Accessibility of Wind Power with Here-And-Now Approach

H. Khorramdel; B. Khorramdel; M. Tayebi Khorrami; H. Rastegar

Volume 2, Issue 1 , June 2007, Pages 49-59

  The major problem of wind turbines is the great variability of wind power production. The dynamic change of the wind speed returns the quantity of the power injected to networks. Therefore, wind–thermal generation scheduling problem plays a key role to implement clean power producers in a competitive ...  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
