NEW EVOLUTIONARY TECHNIQUE FOR OPTIMIZATION SHUNT CAPACITORS IN DISTRIBUTION NETWORKS

Ali Elmaouhab – Mohamed Boudour – Rabah Gueddouche

   The paper presents a new evolutionary technique for optimizing on one part the numbers, the sizes and locations of shunt capacitors in radial distribution network in away to minimize the annual cost of active power losses with the improvement of voltage profiles of different buses. The technique is applied on 10 buses network and on IEEE~34 buses network test. The results are compared with ones of previous studies using heuristiques methods and the same network tests.

Keywords: evolutionary technique, genetic algorithm, radial distribution network, shunt capacitor placement
