Abstract

This paper proposes a novel approach for enhancing the hosting capacity (HC) of distributed generators (DGs) in a grid by optimizing the allocation problem of DGs besides the placement and operation of voltage regulators (VRs). The proposed model aims to maximize the installed capacity of DGs while ensuring the bus voltage/current stays within operating limits and minimizing the investment costs of VRs. The optimization model is implemented in the dynamic hunter leadership optimization algorithm, and the effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated using IEEE 33-bus and 69-bus distribution systems.
