10.4.11 Genetically Optimized Fuzzy Placement and Sizing of Capacitor Banks in Distorted Distribution Networks

This section presents a genetic algorithm in conjunction with fuzzy logic (GA-FL) to formulate the capacitor placement and sizing problem in the presence of voltage and current harmonics, taking into account fixed capacitors with a limited number of capacitor banks at each bus [46]. Operational and power quality constraints include bounds for rms voltage, THDv, and the number as well as the size of installed capacitors. In this hybrid global optimization method, fuzzy approximate reasoning is introduced to determine the suitability (fitness function) of each GA chromosome for capacitor placement. This will improve the evolution process ...
