The proposed model optimizes two objectives, namely costs and emissions and determines the optimal schemes of sizing, placement and specially the dynamics (i.e., timing) of investments on distributed generation units and network reinforcements over the planning period. An efficient two-stage heuristic method is proposed to solve the formulated planning problem. The effectiveness of the proposed model is demonstrated by applying it to a distribution network and comparing the simulation results with other methods and models.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Renewable energy||Volume:||36||Issue:||1||Start page:||179||End page:||188||Copyright (published version):||2010 Elsevier||Keywords:||Distributed generation; Immune algorithm; NSGA-II; Dynamic planning; Multi-objective optimization||DOI:||10.1016/j.renene.2010.06.019||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
