Applying Tabu Search Optimisation in Zone Distribution System Reconfiguration A Stochastic Model
Keywords:Tabu search, Network topology, Stochastic model, Optimisation, Distribution system
The main idea in the distribution system is to reconfigure the network and to change the sectionalizing switches' state to reduce power loss and maintain system stability. In network reconfiguration, a key role is to find the appropriate network topology that does have the lowest losses during any conditions present within the network. Reliability, security, and system operating limitations are the most significant parts of the network reconfiguration that are suitable. In the work, the authors suggested to apply Tabu search optimisation technique to solve the problem of network reorganisation in the distribution system by creating a stochastic model of a virtual zone based on data prepared in a previous study by the first author. The stochastic model consists of four feeders and 106 buses. The validity of the suggested technique is verified by relying on standard practices and its ability to establish a correct network topology in the system distribution. This investigation determines that the suggested technique is excellently suitable for creating a virtual zone network and can be applied in reality.
