Abstract

This paper proposes a Differential Evolution (DE) optimization algorithm and a Pareto-frontier Multi-Objective Differential Evolution (MODE) optimization algorithm for the optimal allocation of Distributed Generation (DG) and Distribution Static Compensator (DSTATCOM) in a radial distribution system. It considers the minimization of active power dissipation, voltage drop and the annual cost as the objectives of this optimization problem. The proposed techniques are tested on an IEEE 33 bus radial distribution system. To compare the performance of the MODE and DE, the weighted sum approach is carried out. This helps to select one solution from the Pareto front of the MODE. Case studies show that the allocation of both DG and DSTATCOM results in a noticeable reduction of system losses, voltage drop and annual cost. Comparative studies also show that the global convergence characteristics of MODE are better than several other optimization algorithms.
