The Service Restoration in the Distribution System with Distributed Generators Based on the Heuristic Multi-Agent Evolutionary Algorithm
In view of a large number of distributed generators penetrated into distribution network, an improved hierarchical island operation was proposed to make the DG play the role as backup power supply in the service restoration of the distribution network; As the renewable distributed generators was strongly advocated, A new mathematical model was proposed to make full use of them. The service restoration problem is a constrained multi-objective optimization problem, a new algorithm which was the combination the heuristic algorithm and multi-agent evolutionary algorithm was proposed, it improved the multi-agent evolutionary algorithm with the Niche technologies to ensure the variety of the populations in the post-optimization and used the adaptive updating strategy to improve the convergence speed. The results of a case show feasibility and correctness of the model and the algorithm.
