A genetic algorithm (GA) based approach for reliability placement of phasor measurement units (PMUs) in smart grid is proposed. The algorithm combines two conflicting objectives which are maximization of the reliability of observability and minimization of the number of PMU placements for ensuring full system observability. The multi-objective problem is formulated as a nonlinear optimization problem and genetic algorithm approach is employed for solving the large scale bus systems. The… CONTINUE READING
