Electric distribution network multiobjective design using a problem-specific genetic algorithm

  title={Electric distribution network multiobjective design using a problem-specific genetic algorithm},
  author={E G Carrano and L P Soares and R. Takahashi and R. Saldanha and O. M. Neto},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery},
This paper presents a multiobjective approach for the design of electrical distribution networks. The objectives are defined as a monetary cost index (including installation cost and energy losses cost) and a system failure index. The true Pareto-optimal solutions are found with a multiobjective genetic algorithm that employs an efficient variable encoding scheme and some problem-specific mutation and crossover operators. Results based on 21- and 100-bus systems are presented. The information… CONTINUE READING
