SIMULTANEOUS RECONFIGURATION AND DG ALLOCATION USING GENETIC ALGORITHM, SLAP SWARM ALGORITHM AND DOLPHIN ECHOLOCATION OPTIMIZATION ALGORITHM

    In a distribution network timely varying load demand makes the operation and control more complex mostly in the high load density zones. The power loss of a distribution network will not be minimum with varying load demand for a fixed configuration of the network. Hence, timely reconfiguration of the network is required. Most of work focused on either Distributed Generation (DG) allocation or network reconfiguration for enhancing distribution network performance. However, simultaneous network reconfiguration and DG allocation in the distribution network have been done by very few researchers. This Matlab design proposes the use of three optimization algorithm i.e Genetic Algorithm (GA), Slap Swarm Algorithm(SSA) and Dolphin Echolocation Optimization(DEO) Algorithm for solving network reconfiguration and DG allocation problem. The major objective of this design is minimization of power loss and voltage deviation.The objective function for the minimization of power loss can be expressed as follows,

Minimize Objective=
To assess the performance five different scenarios considered are:

1.    Only reconfiguration,
2.    Only DG allocation,
3.    DG allocation after reconfiguration,
4.    Reconfiguration after DG allocation and
5.    Simultaneous reconfiguration and DG allocation.
The design is tested on IEEE-33,69 and and 119 distribution systems. The simulation video shows the performance of the design.
