Abstract

The selection of placement and size for multiple distributed generators based on renewable energies becomes an important issue in operating modern power systems safely and reliably. This paper extends the previous study in our earlier paper by treating the problems for their optimal locations and sizes in more realistic way based on the power loss sensitivities and Kalman filter algorithm, respectively. In particular, the proposed method is implemented by the simulation on a part of practical distribution network of 60 MVA scale, which is located at the Do-gok area in Seoul, Korea. The new factor, called as the optimal locator index, is developed to determine the optimal locations in a systematic and effective manner by the power loss sensitivities. Also, the Kalman filter algorithm is applied to determine the optimal sizes by choosing the step size of 10 KW, which is a much smaller increment than the 10-MW step used in our earlier paper, without requiring high computational efforts. This selected step size of 10 KW is realistic and suitable to apply in practical test systems.
