Considering DG in Expansion Planning of Subtransmission System

H. Shayeghi, A. Bagheri


Deregulation has been obtained new options in the design and planning of the power system. One of these options is the integration of Distributed Generation (DG) into the power system. In this paper, the presence of distributed generation is regarded as another alternative for supplying the load of subtransmission system. The effects of DG on expansion planning of subtransmission system have been modeled as an  optimization problem where the Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Linear Programming (LP) are employed to solve it. The proposed approach is applied to a realistic subtransmission system and the results are evaluated.
