This paper describes the impact of the distance and the size of the corona ring, on the magnitude anddistribution of electrical potential across the polymer insulators. The procedure is based on finiteelement method numerical analysis and stochastic optimization algorithm of differential evolution(DE). The optimal selection of corona ring has a significant impact on the control of potential and,consequently, on dielectric strengths, both inside and outside the insulator. This method is used foroptimized determining of the size and the distance of corona ring from polymer insulators in existingstructures.

Multiobjective Based Optimization Using Tap Setting Transformer, DG and Capacitor Placement in Distribution Networks
Multiobjective Based Optimization

In this article, a multiobjective function for placement of Distributed Generation (DG) and capacitors with thetap setting of Under Load Tap Changer (ULTC) Transformer is introduced. Most of the recent articles have paidless attention to DG, capacitor placement and ULTC effects in the distribution network simultaneously. Insimulations, a comparison between different modes was carried out with, and without tap setting of ULTC.Simultaneous DG, capacitor placement, and ULTC transformer tap setting improve the voltage profile of loadbuses globally. In addition, they can also reduce loss and increase Available Transfer Capability (ATC). TheIEEE 41bus radial distribution network is used to illustrate the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposedapproach.

A Novel Reference Current Calculation Method for Shunt Active Power Filters using a Recursive Algebraic Approach
A Novel Reference Current Calculation Method

This paper presents a novel method to calculate the reference source current and the referencecompensating current for shunt active power filters (SAPFs). This method first calculates theamplitude and phase of the fundamental load current from a recursive algebraic approach blockbefore calculating the displacement power factor. Next, the amplitude of the reference mains currentis computed with the corresponding phase voltage. Finally, the difference between the actual loadcurrent and the reference source current is considered the reference compensating current to bedelivered by the SAPF. The proposed method is presented and applied to the control system of thevoltage source converter of SAPFs. The performance of the proposed method in reducing harmonicsand improving the power factor is examined with a SAPF simulation model. The results are comparedwith the instantaneous active and reactive pq power theory as other reference generation method.

Improved Binary Particle Swarm Optimization Based TNEP Considering Network Losses, Voltage Level, and Uncertainty in Demand
Improved Binary Particle Swarm Optimization Based TNEP Considering Network Losses,

Transmission network expansion planning (TNEP) is an important component of power system planning. Itdetermines the characteristics and performance of the future electric power network and influences the powersystem operation directly. Different methods have been proposed for the solution of the static transmissionnetwork expansion planning (STNEP) problem till now. But in all of them, STNEP problem considering thenetwork losses, voltage level and uncertainty in demand has not been solved by improved binary particle swarmoptimization (IBPSO) algorithm. Binary particle swarm optimization (BPSO) is a new populationbasedintelligence algorithm and exhibits good performance on the solution of the largescale and nonlinearoptimization problems. However, it has been observed that standard BPSO algorithm has prematureconvergence when solving a complex optimization problem like STNEP. To resolve this problem, in this study,an IBPSO approach is proposed for the solution of the STNEP problem considering network losses, voltagelevel, and uncertainty in demand. The proposed algorithm has been tested on a real transmission network of theAzerbaijan regional electric company and compared with BPSO. The simulation results show that consideringthe losses even for transmission expansion planning of a network with low load growth is caused thatoperational costs decreases considerably and the network satisfies the requirement of delivering electric powermore reliable to load centers. In addition, regarding the convergence curves of the two methods, it can be seenthat precision of the proposed algorithm for the solution of the STNEP problem is more than BPSO.

In this paper, we present a new method to determine the optimal location and parameter settings of UnifiedPower Flow Controller (UPFC) for removing voltage violations and transmission lines overloading. UPFC isconsidered as the most powerful member of the FACTS devices, that it can control shunt and series power flow.This option gives to UPFC the power to control the voltage profile and transmission lines flow simultaneously.We used the Imperialistic Competitive Algorithm (ICA) to determine the optimal location and optimal parametersettings of UPFC to improve the performance of the power system specially removing voltage violations in thebuses and solving transmission lines overloading to increase loadability in the power networks. This procedureis proposed to be applied on IEEE 14 bus system to show the validity of the method.

NeuroOptimizer: A New Artificial Intelligent Optimization Tool

The main objective of this paper is to introduce a new intelligent optimization technique that uses a predictioncorrectionstrategy supported by a recurrent neural network for finding a near optimal solution of a givenobjective function. Recently there have been attempts for using artificial neural networks (ANNs) in optimizationproblems and some types of ANNs such as Hopfield network and Boltzmann machine have been applied incombinatorial optimization problems. However, ANNs cannot optimize continuous functions and discreteproblems should be mapped into the neural networks architecture. To overcome these shortages, we introduce anew procedure for stochastic optimization by a recurrent artificial neural network. The introduced neurooptimizer(NO) starts with an initial solution and adjusts its weights by a new heuristic and unsupervised rule tocompute the best solution. Therefore, in each iteration, NO generates a new solution to reach the optimal ornear optimal solutions. For comparison and detailed description, the introduced NO is compared to geneticalgorithm and particle swarm optimization methods. Then, the proposed method is used to design the optimalcontroller parameters for a five bar linkage manipulator robot. The important characteristics of NO are:convergence to optimal or near optimal solutions, escaping from local minima, less function evaluation, highconvergence rate and easy to implement.

This paper presents a method for damping of low frequency oscillations (LFO) in a power system. The powersystem contains static synchronous series compensators (SSSC) which using a chaotic harmony searchalgorithm (CHSA), optimizes the leadlag damping stabilizer. In fact, the main target of this paper isoptimization of selected gains with the time domainbased objective function, which is solved by chaoticharmony search algorithm. The performance of the proposed twomachine power system equipped with SSSC isevaluated under various disturbances and operating conditions and compared to power system stabilizer (PSS).The effectiveness of the proposed SSSC controller to damp out of oscillations, over a wide range of operatingconditions and variation of system parameters is shown in simulation results and analysis.
