Distribution system service restoration using the artificial neural network approach and pattern recognition method

  title={Distribution system service restoration using the artificial neural network approach and pattern recognition method},
  author={Y.-Y. Hsu and H.-M. Huang},
Service restoration of a distribution system is investigated by using artificial intelligence. The purpose is to reach a proper restoration plan for the unfaulted zone after a fault has been identified and isolated. To reduce the outage period and improve service reliability, the restoration plan must be devised in a very short period. In the paper, two approaches using artificial intelligence, i.e. the artificial neural network (ANN) approach and the pattern recognition method, are developed…
