A novel hybrid evolutionary algorithm based on ACO and SA for distribution feeder reconfiguration with regard to DGs
Olamei, J., Niknam, T., Arefi, Ali, & Mazinan, A. H. (2011) A novel hybrid evolutionary algorithm based on ACO and SA for distribution feeder reconfiguration with regard to DGs. In Proceedings of the 2011 IEEE GCC Conference and Exhibition (GCC), IEEE, Dubai, pp. 259-262.
This paper presents an efficient hybrid evolutionary optimization algorithm based on combining Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) and Simulated Annealing (SA), called ACO-SA, for distribution feeder reconfiguration (DFR) considering Distributed Generators (DGs). Due to private ownership of DGs, a cost based compensation method is used to encourage DGs in active and reactive power generation. The objective function is summation of electrical energy generated by DGs and substation bus (main bus) in the next day. The approach is tested on a real distribution feeder. The simulation results show that the proposed evolutionary optimization algorithm is robust and suitable for solving DFR problem.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
