Metaheuristic Optimization in Power Engineering — Recommend this title to your library

Procedure for optimal siting and sizing of DG units requires two levels. The first level aims to reduce the solution space by introducing a list of preliminary locations based on the sensitivity of power losses with power injections into the network buses. This significantly reduces the number of possible variants of the solution, which are searched in the second stage of the procedure. Two search techniques were used for searching: partial search of variants and metaheuristic optimization methods-GA. Simulation results on two test networks confirm the efficiency and robustness of this approach for both search techniques. However, it should be noted that the partial search technique is suitable for small distribution networks, while the GA also provides high-quality solutions for real systems with a large number of buses and potential locations for DG units.
