Distributed Generation Planning Strategy with Load Models in Radial Distribution System

Deependra Singh, Devender Singh, and K. S. Verma

Abstract—This paper proposes a new approach for distributed generation (DG) planning from the perspective of a distribution company (disco). Optimal sizing and siting decisions for distributed generator is obtained through different approaches: Power loss minimization, System MVA minimization, System cost minimization and System Energy loss minimization. The methodology adopted permits the planner to decide optimal location and size of DG with compromise between Power loss, System MVA, System cost and System energy loss. Normally a constant power (real and reactive) load model is assumed in most of the studies. It is shown that load models can significantly affect the optimal location and sizing of DG resources in distribution systems. A comparative study of optimal location and size of distributed generator provided by installing DG resources with different type of loads models has been performed.

Index Terms—Distributed generation (DG), load models, distribution system.
