Load Flow, Distributed generation (DG), Voltage Stability Index


This paper presents an algorithm for allocation of DG to minimizing the active power loss based on voltage stability Index. The active power loss is mitigated with proper sizing and allocation of DG. The location of DG is found with the help of voltage stability index (VSI) and DG capacity is varied in small steps to corresponding power loss minimization. A direct distribution load flow method using BIBC and BCBV matrices for installing DG units is used. By proper sizing and allocation of Distributed Generation in IEEE 33-bus Radial Distribution system, the transmission losses are minimized and voltage stability problems are mitigated. This algorithm shows considerable loss reduction and voltage stability improvement.
