A new formulation of the general capacitor placenicnt problem taking into consideration practical aspects of capacitors, the load constraints and the operational constraints at different load levels is presented. The new formulation of lhc gcnci;~l cnpicitor pl:iccmciit pioblein is :I coinbinntoi I:II optimization problem with a non-differentiable objective function. A solution methodology based on an optimization technique -simulated annealing to determine (i) the locations to install capacitors, (ii) the ty…
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 on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
