Title: Optimization of electrical distribution network operation based on EPSO
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: This paper presents a new and efficient methodology for voltage control and network reconfiguration of distribution networks using fuzzy rules, EPSO and graph theory. A simpler representation of the network is built through a graph, were all the network loops are identified, both closed and open loops. This information is incorporated into the EPSO operators to create feasible solutions for the topological problem, avoiding convergence problems and reducing the computational burden. The initial EPSO population is created from the initial feasible solution, using appropriated heuristics to create feasible and possibly better initial solutions. At the same time a heuristic based strategy is used to perform local voltage control actions. Finally a fuzzy inference based algorithm is employed to achieve the optimal transformer and capacitor bank tap position. The proposed methodology was tested in a 13-bus test system, and in a real distribution system with 3200 buses.
