Diminution of Losses and Reliability improvement of distribution systems Using Genetic Optimization
Keywords:Genetic Optimization, power distribution system
In the current epoch of power system efficiency of power distribution system enhanced by number of method like
genetic algorithm, simulated annealing, swarm optimization method etc. A genetic algorithm (GA) is a exploration or
maximization algorithm based on the technicalities of natural selection and natural genetics. Since GA is suitable to solve
combinatorial optimization tribulations, it can be effectively applied to problems of loss minimization in distribution
systems. This paper proposes a general approach and a set of indices to assess some of the technological benefits in a
quantitative manner. The index proposed is: 1) voltage profile improvement index; 2) line-loss reduction index.
Simulation results obtained using a simple IEEE-14 bus test system is presented and discussed to illustrate the value and
usefulness of the proposed approach.
