  author={Gareth P. Harrison and Antonio Piccolo and Pierluigi Siano and Robin Wallace},
Many methods have been applied to examining the cap acity of existing distribution networks to accept distributed generation (DG). One aspect miss ing from existing approaches is the capability to efficiently site and size a predefined number of DG s. Here, a hybrid method employing genetic algorithms and optimal power flow aims to overcome this shortcoming. It could be applied by Distribution Network Operators to search a network for the best sites and capacities available to strategically… CONTINUE READING
