A Novel Method For Loss Minimization In Distribution Networks, Kashem M. Muttaqi, Velappa Ganapathy, G B. Jasmon, M Buhari

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

Network reconfiguration for loss minimization is the determination of switching-options that minimizes the power losses for a particular set of loads on a distribution system. In this paper, a novel method is proposed by formulating an algorithm to reconfigure distribution networks for loss minimization. An efficient technique is used to determine the switching combinations, select the status of the switches, and find the best combination of switches for minimum loss. In the first stage of the proposed algorithm, a limited number of switching combinations is generated and the best switching combination is determined. In the second stage, an extensive search ...


Network Reconfiguration For Enhancement Of Voltage Stability In Distribution Networks, Kashem M. Muttaqi, Velappa Ganapathy, G G. Jasmon Jan 2000

Network Reconfiguration For Enhancement Of Voltage Stability In Distribution Networks, Kashem M. Muttaqi, Velappa Ganapathy, G G. Jasmon

Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences - Papers: Part A

Network reconfiguration is performed by altering the topological structure of distribution feeders. By reconfiguring the network, voltage stability can be maximised for a particular set of loads in distribution systems. A new algorithm is formulated for enhancement of voltage stability by network reconfiguration. Initially, a certain number of switching combinations is generated using the combination of tie and its two neighbouring switches, and the best combination of switches for maximising the voltage stability in the network among them is determined. Then the search is extended by considering the branches next to the open-branches of the best configuration one by one ...
