Optimal Placement Of Power Factor Correction Capacitors In Power Systems Using Teaching Learning Based Optimization

Authors : Bouaraki Mouloud . Recioui Abdelmadjid .


This paper presents a method to optimize the placement of capacitors in a distribution system to correct power factor and reduce losses and costs. The method uses the Teaching Learning Based Optimization (TLBO) method to solve the optimal capacitor placement problem. The combinatorial nature of the problem suggests the employment of a mixed binary and real valued TLBO algorithm. To validate the efficiency of the method, it was applied to various examples (different bus systems) and simulation results are discussed.
