Siting and sizing of distributed generation for optimal microgrid architecture

  title={Siting and sizing of distributed generation for optimal microgrid architecture},
  author={M. R. Vallem and Joydeep Mitra},
  journal={Proceedings of the 37th Annual North American Power Symposium, 2005.},
This paper presents a method for optimally siting and sizing distributed generation (DG) units in a microgrid. The optimization is based on stipulated reliability criteria. Power system planning based on reliability gives rise to efficient architectures which can meet the consumer requirements with minimum system upgrade. This paper develops a technique for determining the optimal location and sizes of DG units in a microgrid, given the network configuration and the heat and power requirements… CONTINUE READING
