Power Distribution Expansion Planning

Authors

Abstract

This paper presents a method for distribution network expansion planning. The two objectives are: loss reduction and Reliability improvement. First, neural network method is used for long term load forecasting.  Then Genetic algorithm is utilized to solve simultaneous placement of power distribution transformers and feeders. The proposed method is applied on the green field. The effectiveness of the proposed method is tested on a green field system and the results are presented.
