Optimal Location of Statom Using Particle Swarm Optimization in IEEE-14 Bus System to Improve Voltage Profile & THD Reduction

Noopur Sahu | Ankit Dubey


Abstract: This paper presents a method for optimal location of STATCOM in IEEE-14 bus system. In this paper, our aim would be finding optimal placement of STATCOM for voltage profile improvement, loss reduction, and THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) reduction in distribution & transmission networks. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is used as the solving tool, where the problem is defined and the objective function is introduced. Taking into account the fitness values sensitivity in PSO algorithm process, it is desired to apply harmonic and load flow calculations for decision-making. Results show that the PSO is able to give the superlative solution with statistical significance and a great degree of convergence. A thorough description of the method, results, conclusions and future scopes are also presented.


Keywords: Optimal location, Particle swarm optimization, STATCOM static compensator, total harmonic distortion
