The proposed model simultaneously optimizes two objectives namely, total costs and technical constraint satisfaction by finding the optimal schemes of sizing, placement and specially the dynamics (i.e., timing) of investments on DG units and/or network reinforcements over the planning period. An efficient heuristic search method is proposed to find non-dominated solutions of the formulated problem and a fuzzy satisfying method is used to choose the final solution. The effectiveness of the proposed model and search method are assessed and demonstrated by various studies on an actual distribution network.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2010 Elsevier||Keywords:||Distributed generation;Fuzzy satisfying method;Soft constraint handling;Immune algorithm;Multi-objective optimization||DOI:||10.1016/j.energy.2010.04.022||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
