A SAIWD-Based Approach for Simultaneous Reconfiguration and Optimal Siting and Sizing of Wind Turbines and DVR units in Distribution Systems

A. Lashkar Ara; H. Bagheri Tolabi; R. hosseini

Volume 4, Issue 2 , December 2016, Pages 93-103

  In this paper, a combination of simulated annealing (SA) and intelligent water drops (IWD) algorithm is used to solve the nonlinear/complex problem of simultaneous reconfiguration with optimal allocation (size and location) of wind turbine (WT) as a distributed generation (DG) and dynamic voltage restorer ...  Read More

Research paper Power System Operation
Multi Objective Scheduling of Utility-scale Energy Storages and Demand Response Programs Portfolio for Grid Integration of Wind Power

E. Heydarian-Forushani; H. Aalami

Volume 4, Issue 2 , December 2016, Pages 104-116

  Increasing the penetration of variable wind generation in power systems has created some new challenges in the power system operation. In such a situation, the inclusion of flexible resources which have the potential of facilitating wind power integration is necessary. Demand response (DR) programs and ...  Read More

A New Structure of Buck-Boost Z-Source Converter Based on Z-H Converter

E. Babaei; T. Ahmadzadeh

Volume 4, Issue 2 , December 2016, Pages 117-131

  In this paper, a new structure for buck-boost Z-source converter based on Z-H topology is proposed. The proposed converter consists of two LC networks similar to the conventional Z-source and Z-H converters. One of the characteristics of the proposed structure is that, without any changing in its’ ...  Read More

Volume 4, Issue 2 , December 2016, Pages 143-152

  ‎ In this paper, the stand-alone photovoltaic system for cathodic protection of underground pipelines is presented. The proposed system offers continuous and automatic adjustment of the applied voltage so that the buried pipelines receive the exact current. A modified perturb and observe (P&O) ...  Read More

Research paper Distribution Systems
Capacitor Placement in Distorted Distribution Network Subject to Wind and Load Uncertainty

A. Najafi; R. Aboli; H. Falaghi; M. Ramezani

Volume 4, Issue 2 , December 2016, Pages 153-164

  Utilizing capacitor banks is very conventional in distribution network in order for local compensation of reactive power. This will be more important considering uncertainties including wind generation and loads uncertainty. Harmonics and non-linear loads are other challenges in power system which complicates ...  Read More
