Optimal placement and sizing of distributed generator units using genetic optimization algorithms

In this article the authors describe how genetic optimization algorithms can be used to find the optimal size and location of distributed generation units in a residential distribution grid. Power losses are minimized while the voltage profile is kept at an acceptable level. The methods is applied on a system based on an existing grid topology with production and residential load data based on measurements. Different scenarios are chosen to run the algorithm.
