Abstract

In the recent past factors such as apprehensions over impacts of environmental aspects, distribution network improvement conditions, and other subsidised programs of the government have affected the distributed generators (DG) units count in commercial and domestic electrical power output. It is known that the optimal size and optimal placement of DG units may lead to low power losses, high voltage profiles. In real time scenario identifying an appropriate DG location and size is hard because of various system constraints. Therefore a method which can identify a optimum DG location and size is necessary. Using the method a power system with an acceptable reliability level and voltage profile can be designed. To serve this purpose in this paper a procedure/method which can calculate the optimum location for DG placement and appropriate DG size has been proposed. This method has been evaluated using a 14 bus distribution system. The optimization method has been designed using genetic algorithm (GA) and also for time varying loads.
