Optimal Placement of Demand Response Program to Improve the Voltage Profile using the TLBO Algorithm
Abolfazl Akram, MohammadHosein Adel
The demand response program, which is in fact the response of consumers to reduce their consumption, is one of those tools that can be useful in improving the network voltage profile to an acceptable level. Therefore, in this research, these tools have been utilized in order to improve the network voltage profile. In this study, as to improve the objective functions under consideration, the normal state of the grid has been considered. Normal state means the normal situation of the network wherein the network supplies the load in its stable state without any breakdown in equipment. In this research, the improvement of objective functions has been taken into account separately by employing the demand response program. The algorithm through which the optimization is carried out in this study is the TLBO algorithm. The simulation results showed that the best position for the demand response program in order to improve the network voltage profile is the bus number 18.
