Abstract

The present study suggests a method to reconfigure a 13-bus distribution system which includes probabilistic loads (PLs) and Distributed Generations (DGs). Reconfiguration is a specific process to determine the best configuration of networks. It is usually assumed that loads are constant, while we know that they have probabilistic nature and change regularly, the above mentioned facts were taken into account in the current study. Considering that 3 DGs (wind farms) have been added to the distribution system, the generation is also probabilistic depending on weather change. The “Sifting Algorithm” has been used for reconfiguration because it has a high accuracy and significant speed. The proposed method is simulated on a well-known distribution network. The achieved results were highly satisfactory and applicable.
