Optimization of long rural feeders using a genetic algorithm
Wishart, Michael T., Ledwich, Gerard, Ivanovich, Grujica, & Ghosh, Arindam (2010) Optimization of long rural feeders using a genetic algorithm. In Proceedings of the 3rd Global Conference on Power Control and Optimization, Courtyard Surfers Paradise Resort, Gold Coast, Queensland.
This paper describes the optimization of conductor size and the voltage regulator location & magnitude of long rural distribution lines. The optimization minimizes the lifetime cost of the lines, including capital costs and losses while observing voltage drop and operational constraints using a Genetic Algorithm (GA). The GA optimization is applied to a real Single Wire Earth Return (SWER) network in regional Queensland and results are presented.
