Optimal Placement and Sizing of Shunt Capacitor Banks in the Presence of Harmonics

Abstract

Investigates the optimal placement and sizing of shunt capacitor banks in the presence of harmonics. It includes the concept of reactive power compensation based on capacitors, and common types of shunt capacitor banks used in power systems. A survey of various optimization algorithms for the placement and sizing of shunt capacitor banks under sinusoidal operating conditions is listed, such as analytical methods, numerical programming methods, heuristic methods, artificial intelligence-based methods, genetic algorithms, expert systems, simulated annealing, artificial neural networks, fuzzy set theory, graph search algorithm, particle swarm ...
