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

Optimal Distribution System Reconfiguration Using Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm (NSGA-II)

J. Moshtagh; S. Ghasemi

Volume 1, Issue 1 , June 2013, Pages 12-21

  In this paper, a Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm-II (NSGA-II) based approach is presented for distribution system reconfiguration. In contrast to the conventional GA based methods, the proposed approach does not require weighting factors for conversion of multi-objective function into an equivalent ...  Read More
