Le laboratoire LATIS félicite Sirine Essallah d'avoir eu le prix du "Best Full Paper Award" à la conférence internationale Renewable Energy Congress (IREC) 2019 pour son travail intitulé : "Optimal Distribution System Reconfiguration for Loss Minimization using BPSO Algorithm".
This paper presents a Binary Particle Swarm Optimization (BPSO) based approach for network reconfiguration. This approach aims to improve power loss minimization and voltage profile while maintaining distribution network radial structure and satisfying system constraints. Three different load scenarios are considered during network reconfiguration to assess the performance of the proposed technique. Simulations are carried out on IEEE 33-bus test system. Results demonstrate well the performance and effectiveness of the proposed method.
