Placement of Dispersed Generations Systems for Reduced Losses

  title={Placement of Dispersed Generations Systems for Reduced Losses},
  author={T. Griffin and K. Tomsovic and D. Secrest and A. Law},
Recent improvements in fuel cell technology along with an increasing demand for small generator units have led to renewed interest in dispersed generation units. This work demonstrates a methodology for deploying dispersed fuel cell generators throughout a power system to allow for more efficient operation. A detailed study of the system losses and sensitivities on Eastern Washington system as part of the larger WSCC system has been completed. This work presents an algorithm to determine the… CONTINUE READING
