DETERMINING LOCATION AND CAPACITY OF DISTRIBUTED GENERATORS FOR POWER LOSS REDUCTION IN DISTRIBUTION NETWORK USING COYOTE ALGORITHM
Main Article Content
This paper presents the method of determining the optimal position and capacity of distributed generations (DGs) on distribution system using coyote algorithm (COA). The objective function of the problem is minimization of power loss of the distribution system. COA is a general optimization algorithm inspired by the social behavior of coyotes native to North America. In comparisions with other algorithms, COA does not need control parameters, so it enhances stability and reliability for applying to the problem of optimizing the location and capacity of DGs. The effectiveness of the COA has assessed on the 33-nodes and 69-nodes distribution systems. The results show that COA is an effective method for the problem of determining location and capacity of DGs in the distribution system.
