THE METHODOLOGY FOR OPTIMIZATION OF ENERGY DISTRIBUTION NETWORK
Michal Kolcun - Jerzy Szkutnik
In the article, the authors depicted the methodology for optimization of energy distribution network based on the criterion of minimum costs of energy distribution. The presented methodology has been implemented as a tool for evaluation of the functioning of the Polish energy network. It has also been used in the model analysis of the Slovakian energy network. As a supplement to the network optimization, one uses also software based on this methodology, which enables the analysis of investment outlays for different network types. All in all, the presented methodology leads to increased efficiency of energy distribution, also in the aspect of balanced development.
