As significant amounts of renewable distributed generation (RDG) are installed in the power grid, it becomes increasingly important to plan RDG integration to maximize the utilization of renewable energy and mitigate unintended consequences, such as phase unbalance. One of the biggest challenges in RDG integration planning is the lack of sufficient information to characterize uncertainty (e.g., load and renewable output). In this paper, we propose a two-stage data-driven distributionally robust…

Robust Optimization Based Optimal DG Placement in Microgrids

Compared with conventional MG planning approaches, the proposed model is more practical in that it fully considers the system uncertainties and only requires a deterministic uncertainty set, rather than a probability distribution of uncertain data which is difficult to obtain.
