Optimal Placement of Capacitor Using Particle Swarm Optimization
In this paper, a research regarding finding an optimal place for installing the capacitor under particle swarm optimization (PSO) has been presented in radial networks by considering the size and price of different capacitors. In this paper, the calculations and results for a typical radial network have been calculated by considering harmonic distortion calculation (HDF) and its results have been stated. Based on this, all the losses have been calculated and compared too. The results of this study have been calculated by MATLAB software.
