A Density Based Approach to the Access Point Layout Smart Distribution Grid Design Optimization Problem
Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) is an integral part of the smart grid. It plays a significant role in control and management for utilities. Along with its pervasiveness, effective AMI network design has drawn more attention. To some extent, the reliability and robustness of the whole system is partially pre-determined by the whole smart distribution network design. Location arrangement for Access Points (APs) is an important aspect of the smart distribution grid structure which influences the system performance greatly because an optimized network by itself is effective to reduce cost and deal with emergencies or threats such as a breakdown hazard. This paper is dedicated to employ multi-objective optimization formulations to analyze and solve this network design problem in the smart distribution grid.
