عنوان مقاله [English]
Capacitor placement at the substation is one of the effective methods for loss reduction and efficiency increasing of the power systems. In this paper, a novel method for capacitor placement on the secondary side of the distribution transformers is carried out. The mathematical method of Mixed–Integer Linear Programming (MILP) algorithm is used for paper goal to increase the Net Present Value (NPV), resulting from the loss reduction. Due to the variability of the loads, a special template is used for loads modelling. Not only the constant loads, but also three types of industrial, residential and commercial loads are assessed with the proposed method. Then, the results are discussed in order to re-grade loads. Also, the proposed method are compared with two methods as Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm and Teaching–Learning Based Optimization (TLBO) algorithm. All of the tests are simulated with MATLAB software and total time of problem is considered as ten years.
