Optimal Renewable Resources Mix for Energy Loss Minimization in Distribution Network-Case Study
This paper provides a case-study about an optimal mix of renewable energy sources in Mazoon Electricity Company (MZEC) network in Al Ashkharah-Oman. The system performance is analyzed in terms of voltage profile and power losses for various scenarios after building a power flow model using available network data. To reduce system power losses, candidate locations and their optimal sizes of distributed generation (DG) units are determined using the optimization toolbox offered by MATLAB©. The optimal renewable mix is obtained with the help of HOMER PRO© software.
