Multi-objective optimization of distributed generation with voltage step constraint

R.P. Payasi, Asheesh K. Singh, Devender Singh, Navneet K. Singh


This paper presents the multi-objective optimization for high penetration of different type of distributed generations (DGs) considering voltage step constraint. In most of the studies in literature, the commonly used constraints are bus voltage limits and line power capacity limit. In this paper, it is analyzed that voltage step constraint affects the location, size and power factor of DG in distribution network. The studies are carried out for 17-bus, 38-bus and 76-bus distribution systems.

Keywords: Distributed generation, distribution system, distributed generation planning, genetic algorithm
