2013 : Optimization scheme of distributed generation installation growth considering network power quality
Prof. Dr. Ir. Mochamad Ashari M.Eng.
The distributed generation (DG) installation growth must be anticipated, primarily by electrical power network operator. An unmanaged DG installation will cause problems of network power quality. This research discussed optimization scheme of DG installation growth considering network power quality. This research was conducted by using multi-type DG eg. capability to inject active power only, capability to inject active and reactive power and capability to inject active power and to absorb reactive power. The three types of DG were connected simultaneously to the network. The objective of this research was obtaining the maximum allowable DG penetration on the network and based on the result, arranging the DG installation growth scenarios at 75, 50, and 25% level. The Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) based optimization method was conducted to obtain maximum allowable DG penetration on the networkÂ …
