OPTIMAL DEPLOYMENT OF GENERALIZED UNIFIED POWER FLOW CONTROLLER USING GREY WOLF OPTIMIZATION TECHNIQUE
Publication Date : 10/07/2020
This paper presents a Grey Wolf Optimization (GWO) based approach for optimal siting and sizing of Generalized Unified Power Flow Controller (GUPFC) for voltage profile improvement and power loss minimization. An objective function based on minimization of active power loss is formulated for use in the GWO. Analysis was conducted based on three scenarios (moderate loading, full loading and at overloading) in Nigeria 28-bus, 330Kv transmission network in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach. The simulation results indicate that GWO is robust based on the facts that all the voltage profile that violate ± 5% tolerance margin of the nominal voltage criteria were kept within the acceptable limit. Moreover, the proposed approach also records significant reduction in the overall real power loss in the whole network.
