Abstract

The optimal location and size for Distributed Generation (DG) to get maximum advantages and improve the performance of electrical distribution systems (EDS) is a difficult challenge to solve. With EDS performance indices, this research offers a constrained generalized multi-objective performance index (MOPI) objective function. Improved Teaching Learning Based Optimization (ITLBO) is used to solve the proposed objective function by removing the convergence issue of basic Teaching Learning Based Optimization (TLBO). By optimizing the MOPI, the Wind Turbine Generation Unit (WTGU) is examined for single and multiple DG placement and sizing in EDS performance improvement. The ideal approach reduces the burden of EDS consumer loss allocation by minimizing power losses, improving the consumer voltage profile and voltage stability, increasing the line loadability margin (LLM), and increasing the line loadability margin (LLM). The performance test was carried out on a 33-node EDS and used MATLAB software to demonstrate the efficacy of optimal solution.
