SUBSTATION DESIGN

Abstract

 

A genetic algorithm methodology is presented, conceived to assist the electric system planning engineers in the selection of the distribution substation locations, taking into account the current substation locations and the candidate points of new ones. The objective of the project was to develop an algorithm for distribution substation location.

At first the bisector perpendicular rule which was investigated and it was seen from literature that it is not an effective method for determining substation location. However it usually provided a good starting/initial solution which should be subject to further refinement.

 

The choice of using genetic algorithm was made based on the fact that GAs by definition is a search technique used in computing to find exact or approximate solutions to optimization and search problems.The substation location is an optimization problem of continuous variables (the substation geographical co-ordinates).

The report describes how the genetic algorithm was developed and shows that the project was accomplished.
