NETWORK RECONFIGURATION FOR LOSS REDUCTION WITH DISTRIBUTED GENERATIONS USING GENETIC ALGORITHM

    This project is to identify the switching operation plan for feeder reconfiguration and the optimum value of DG size simultaneously. The main objective is to reduce the real power losses and improve the bus voltage profile in the system while satisfying all the distribution constraints. A method based on Genetic algorithm to determine the minimum configuration is presented and their impact on the network real power losses and voltage profiles are investigated. Three different cases are considered as mentioned below with Newton-Raphson load flow analysis, and the effectiveness of the proposed technique carried out on 33 bus systems is also demonstrated through MATLAB simulations and the results are presented in the simulation video.
Case #1. Reconfiguration of 33 bus distribution system
Case #2. Optimal DG and sizing of 33 bus distribution system
Case #3. Simultaneous reconfiguration and DG installation of 33 bus distribution system
Result Evaluations:

  • Voltage profile
  • Active power loss
  • Reactive power loss
  • Convergence graph
  • DG location and DG size
