Abstract

Distribution networks (DNs) are facing numerous challenges such as variability of demands, environmental issues, high power losses, and fluctuating v oltage p rofiles. Distributed energy resources (DERs) are becoming more important due to their economic and environmental impacts. This paper presents optimal siting and sizing of the Photovoltaics (PVs) and Wind Turbines (WTs) to improve the voltage magnitude profiles. This planning problem is formulated using DER generation and load profiles o ft he t hree r epresentative d ays, o ne f or each season. The resulting constrained optimization problem is solved using Cuckoo Search Algorithm (CSA). The proposed solution approach is applied to the 33 bus and 69 bus radial distribution networks. Several simulations are performed for the performance analysis of the methods and the results are compared to several available ones.
