Flexible Positioning of Distributed Generation in Power System Network Using Probabilistic Index Considering Uncertainties in Power Generation

Dr.A. Sheela and M. Sowmya


Increase in demand of electricity led to the increase in integration of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in distribution network. The optimal operation with interconnection of these sources is highly dependent on the location of such sources in the distribution network. The planning of location and integration of Distributed Generation (DG) primarily considers the uncertainty related with its generation. The period of study is segmented into different states with respect to generation of power. With the advancement of power electronic converters DG's can be used for power generation as well as for voltage/current issues. In this paper a probabilistic index is used to measure the voltages in the buses of the distribution network considering the uncertainties. Based on these index different types of DG's like PV array, wind turbine are located to improve voltage profile. The proposed method is applied to IEEE 30 bus systems and it is implemented in MATLAB.
