8.8 Mathematical Procedure to Determine the Optimum Capacitor Allocation

The optimum application of shunt capacitors on distribution feeders to reduce losses has been studied in numerous papers such as those by Neagle and Samson [5], Schmidt [7], Maxwell [8,9], Cook [10], Schmill [11], Chang [1214], Bae [15], Gönen and Djavashi [17], and Grainger et al. [19,2123]. Figure 8.21 shows a realistic representation of a feeder that contains a number of line segments with a combination of concentrated (or lumped-sum) and uniformly distributed loads, as suggested by Chang [13]. Each line segment represents a part of the feeder between sectionalizing devices, voltage regulators, and other points of significance. For the sake of convenience, the load ...
