Optimal Capacitor Placement in Distribution Systems by Simulated Annealing

Abstract—This paper presents the applications of simulated annealing (SA) in power system. In the area of capacitor allocation in power distribution systems, we will introduce in this paper, the current SA which used to solve such problem. SA has been used to solve the problem of capacitor placement in power distribution systems. A new composition of the solution string for the coding of the capacitor placement problem has been proposed. The proposed string represents both the optimum location and the size of the capacitor. Test results have been presented.
