Abstract

This paper proposes a computationally effective method for optimal operation of multiple distributed generations (DGs) in dc distribution systems to improve their efficiency. There have been many research works to select the optimal sizes of multiple DGs. However, these optimal sizes are valid only in the particular operating point. For optimal operations of power systems, the DG sizes must be determined all the time according to the various load conditions. The proposed method can maintain the distribution system operating in its optimal condition with only single optimization process, without regard to load variations. Therefore, it can moderate the serious problems, derived from inaccurate load forecasting. To verify the performance of the proposed method, the dc system is first implemented with the real distribution system of Do-gok area in Seoul, Korea. Then, the real hourly-load data, acquired from SCADA system in Korea, are used to simulate the practical load variations.
