    Optimal power flow solution by a modified particle swarm optimization algorithm

    , Article Proceedings of the Universities Power Engineering Conference, 1 September 2008 through 4 September 2008, Padova ; 2008 ; 9788889884096 (ISBN) Hajian Hoseinabadi, H ; Hosseini, H ; Hajian, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper presents a modified particle swarm optimization (MPSO) algorithm for solving the optimal power flow (OPF) problems. The main distinction of this approach is in using particle's worth experience in stead of the best previous experience. The proposed approach is evaluated on the IEEE 30-bus test system which minimizes the total fuel cost considering operational constraints such as power flow equations, transmission flow limits, bus voltages and reactive power of generators. The results obtained using the proposed approach are compared with results of other optimization methods  

    An approach to optimal dispatch of bilateral electricity contracts regarding voltage stability

    , Article IFAC Proceedings Volumes (IFAC-PapersOnline) ; Volume 5, Issue PART 1 , 2006 , Pages 65-70 ; 14746670 (ISSN); 9783902661081 (ISBN) Mozafari, B ; Ranjbar, A. M ; Mozafari, A ; Amraee, T ; Sharif University of Technology

    This paper proposes a methodology for optimal dispatch of bilateral electricity contracts, which may endanger the system voltage stability in light of short-term operational planning of a deregulated power system. In this framework the value that each owner of a transaction is willing to pay will reflect how much the electricity contract is important to be implemented physically. The proposed model dispatches optimally the bilateral transactions regarding the prices offered by owners of bilateral contracts for reactive power and transmission capacity utilization in one hand and, the total operational costs of reactive power resources in the other hand. The model also includes the limits... 

    An approach for under voltage load shedding using particle swarm optimization

    , Article International Symposium on Industrial Electronics 2006, ISIE 2006, Montreal, QC, 9 July 2006 through 13 July 2006 ; Volume 3 , 2006 , Pages 2019-2024 ; 1424404975 (ISBN); 9781424404971 (ISBN) Mozafari, B ; Amraee, T ; Ranjbar, A. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Under voltage load shedding (UVLS) is one of the most powerful countermeasure and somehow an economical solution to sustain voltage stability especially for double or severe contingencies in power systems. In this paper the concept of dynamic security-constrained OPF is employed to develop a model for optimal UVLS. Considering dynamic voltage security, the presented model attempts to provide sufficient voltage stability margin for post contingency condition. This is done by means of interruption some portion of loads at minimum cost. The voltage stability margin, which is measured as a MW distance to the collapse point, is incorporated into the power flow equations. Although some powerful...
