Improved Bacterial Colony Chemotaxis Algorithm for Distribution Network Planning
This paper applies bacterial colony chemotaxis (BCC) algorithm to distribution network planning and makes some improvements about this algorithm. Firstly, we put forward an improved strategy based on the parallelogram law in order to make full use of different kinds of optimization information generated in the iterative process of BCC algorithm. Secondly, according to the characteristic of distribution network planning, the solution strategy of Boolean predicament is proposed. Lastly, we apply the improved BCC algorithm to distribution network planning and it is proved effective and feasible.
