This paper presents a mixed‐integer nonlinear optimization model for distributed generation (DG) placement in the distribution system. A multiperiod ac optimal power‐flow model is developed for minimizing annual energy losses and determining the optimal site and size of DG units. Various system constraints and time‐varying demands are incorporated in the model. A novel iterative method for solving the multiperiod DG placement problem based on the Benders decomposition technique is proposed, which redu…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
