Static ATC Estimation Using Fully Complex-Valued Radial Basis Function Neural Network
In the deregulated power systems, the available transfer capability (ATC) should be known for secure and reliable operation. ATC mainly depends on load for a particular transaction. Due to complex nature of load, it is better if the ATC estimator is able to handle this complex nature. This paper presents fully complex-valued radial basis function (FC-RBF) neural network approach for ATC estimation for bilateral transaction under normal condition. The training patterns for neural network are generated using differential evolution algorithm (DEA). The important feature of the proposed method is the use of input reduction techniques to improve the performance of the developed network. Differential evolution feature selection (DEFS) technique is proposed to reduce the complexity and training time of neural network. The proposed method is tested on IEEE 118 bus system, and results are compared with DEA and repeated power flow (RPF) results. The test results show that the proposed method reduces the training time and it is suitable for online application.
