Multi-objective optimisation for distribution system planning with renewable energy resources

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • The seamless integration of renewable distributed

    generation (DG) units into distribution system has become one

    of the most challenging research aspects in the recent years. The

    systematic deployment of renewable DG units can improve

    distribution system performance in terms of voltage support,

    loss minimisation, emission reduction, and reliability

    improvement. It is important to consider technical and economic

    incentives with the integration of renewable DG units. In this

    paper, a multi-objective distribution system expansion planning

    model with integration of renewable DG units is presented. It

    proposes comprehensive approach to address multiple

    conflicting objectives without loosing generality. A problemspecific

    particle swarm optimisation (PSO) based search method

    is used to solve the formulated planning problem. Scenario

    based studies are performed to examine the impacts of different

    DG allocations on system reliability and the investment cost of

    system reinforcement.
