A New DG Planning Approach to Maximize Renewable - Based DG Penetration Level and Minimize Annual Loss

Abstract : Distributed Generation (DG) using renewable technologies is increasing due to their benefits including energy security and emission reduction. However, installing new DGs in distributed networks is limited due to network constraints such as feeder capacity and short circuit level, as well as higher investment costs. In this paper, network reconfiguration and reactive power planning are used to maximize DG penetration level and to minimize annual loss for DGs with biomass technologies. In order to model the problem uncertainties, 96 scenarios considering ten different network load levels are studied. A multi-objective method is applied for solving this optimization problem by using Pareto front. The numerical results indicate the positive impacts of the proposed approach on improving the network security.
