Abstract

In this paper an improved method to optimally place the active power conditioners (APCs) in order to power quality enhancement in distribution systems is presented using the discrete firefly algorithm (DFA). An objective function is defined to simultaneously improve voltage profile, to minimize voltage total harmonic distortion and total investment cost. The performance analysis of the proposed DFA is performed in the Matlab software on the modified radial IEEE 16-bus test systems. The obtained results are then compared with the standard firefly algorithm and discrete PSO. The simulation and comparison of results prove that the proposed method is able to precisely determine the optimal location and size of the APCs in radial distribution systems.
