In power systems with a large integration of wind power, setting the adequate operating reserve levels is one of the main concerns of system operators (SO). The integration of large shares of wind generation in power systems led to the development of new forecasting methodologies, including probabilistic forecasting tools, but management tools able to use(More)
This paper presents an approach to the reconfiguration of radial distribution networks, for both loss reduction and service restoration, using the same metaheuristic tool: the simulated annealing algorithm. Besides the main objective of each problem (minimizing losses or load not supplied) minimization of the total number of switching device operations is(More)
