OPTIMIZING TOPOLOGY OF THE POWER DISTRIBUTION NETWORK USING GENETIC ALGORITHM

Martin Paar, Lukas Oliva, Jana Jilkova

Abstract

The article deals with application of genetic algorithm to the minimization of the operational cost of distribution network. The optimization is achieved by the change of the network topology or reconfiguration in terms of power network terminology. The optimization algorithm changes the setup of the switchgears to get such a configuration which leads to the minimum costs for power loss and minimum financial penalization for not delivering the electric power and therefore violating standards of the power supply continuity. The Finnish continuity standard at systems level and Portuguese continuity standard at single-customer level were selected for evaluation of the impact of power supply discontinuity and their impact is compared and discussed. The Genetic algorithm is designed as multi-attribute optimization with mono-objective evaluation using binary coding. Also since the optimization involves reconfiguration of the topology a simple solution to cope with invalid solution is described and discussed.
