  • This paper proposes the method of active distribution network expansion planning considering distributed generation integration and distribution network reconfiguration. The distribution network reconfiguration is taken as the expansion planning alternative with zero investment cost of the branches. During the process of the reconfiguration in expansion planning, all the branches are taken as the alternative branches. The objective is to minimize the total costs of the distribution network in the planning period. The expansion alternatives such as active management, new lines, new substations, substation expansion and Distributed Generation (DG) installation are considered. Distribution network reconfiguration is a complex mixed-integer nonlinear programming problem, with integration of DGs and active managements, the active distribution network expansion planning considering distribution network reconfiguration becomes much more complex. This paper converts the dual-level expansion model to Second-Order Cone Programming (SOCP) model, which can be solved with commercial solver GUROBI. The proposed model and method are tested on the modified IEEE 33-bus system and Portugal 54-bus system.

  • This paper presents a novel objective function for distribution system reconfiguration for reliability enhancement. When islanding operations of distributed generators is prohibited, faults in the feeder interrupt the operation of distributed generators. For this reason, we include the customer interruption cost as well as the distributed generator interruption cost in the objective function in the network reconfiguration algorithm. The network reconfiguration in which genetic algorithms are used is implemented by MATLAB. The effect of the proposed objective function in the network reconfiguration is analyzed and compared with existing objective functions through case studies. The network reconfiguration considering the proposed objective function is suitable for a distribution system that has a high penetration of distributed generators.

  • This paper studies a series of logical topology reconfiguration processes corresponding to a series of traffic demand changes in a ship backbone network. The proposed reconfiguration technique is to minimize costly changes of traffic forwarding paths and minimize the average hop distance of traffic forwarding paths in terms of ship backbone network performance simultaneously. Performance evaluation is conducted to illustrate the efficiency of the proposed reconfiguration technique. It shows that the proposed reconfiguration technique yields efficient performance in the entire series of reconfiguration processes.

  • This paper presents a approach for a service restoration and optimal reconfiguration of distribution network using Genetic algorithm(GA) and Tabu search(TS) method. Restoration and reconfiguration problems in distribution network are difficult to solve in short times, because distribution network supplies power for customers combined with many tie-line switches and sectionalizing switches. Furthermore, the solutions of these problems have to satisfy radial operation conditions and reliability indices. To overcome these time consuming and sub-optimal problem characteristics, this paper applied Genetic-Tabu algorithm. The Genetic-Tabu algorithm is a Tabu search combined with Genetic algorithm to complement the weak points of each algorithm. The case studies with 7 bus distribution network showed that not the loss reduction but also the reliability cost should be considered to achieve the economic service restoration and reconfiguration in the distribution network. The results of suggested Genetic-Tabu algorithm and simple Genetic algorithm are compared in the case study also.

  • As the role of information collection becomes increasingly important in the enormous data environment, there is growing demand for more intelligent information technologies for managing complex data. On the other hand, it is difficult to find a solution because of the data complexity and big scaled amount. Accordingly, there is a need for a special intelligent knowledge base frame that can be operated by itself flexibly. In this paper, by adopting switching function for signal transmission in the synapse of the human brain, I/E selective activation based knowledge reconfiguring mechanism is proposed for building more intelligent information management system. In particular, knowledge network design, a special knowledge node structure, Type definition, I/E gauge definition and I/E matching scheme are provided. Using these concepts, the proposed system makes the functions of activation by I/E Gauge, selection and reconfiguration. In a more efficient manner, the routing and reasoning process was performed based on the knowledge reconfiguration network. In the experiments, the process of selection by I/E matching, knowledge reconfiguration and routing & reasoning results are described.

  • A significant amount of research has focused on the development of highly parallel architectures to obtain far more computational power than conventional computer systems. These architectures usually comprise of a large number of processors communicating through an interconnection network. The VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) and WSI (Wafer Scale Integration) cellular arrays form one important class of those parallel architectures, and consist of a large number of simple processing cells, all on a single chip or wafer, each interconnected only to its neighbors. This paper studies three fundamental issues in these arrays : fault-tolerant reconfiguration. functional reconfiguration, and their integration. The paper examines conventional techniques, and gives an in-depth discussion about fault-tolerant reconfiguration and functional reconfiguration, presenting testing control strategy, configuration control strategy, steps required f4r each reconfiguration, and other relevant topics. The issue of integrating fault tolerant reconfiguration and functional reconfiguration has been addressed only recently. To tackle that problem, the paper identifies the relation between fault tolerant reconfiguration and functional reconfiguration, and discusses appropriate testing and configuration control strategy for integrated reconfiguration on VLSI and WSI cellular arrays.

  • Optimal Distributed Generation (DG) output and reconfiguration are among the well accepted approach to reduce power loss in a distribution network. In the past, most of the researchers employed optimal DG output and reconfiguration separately. In this work, a simultaneous DG output and reconfiguration analysis is proposed to maximize power loss reduction. The impact of the separated analysis and simultaneous analysis are investigated. The test result on the 33 bus distribution network with 3 units of DG operated in PV mode showed the simultaneous analysis gave the lowest power loss (global optimal) and faster results compared to other combined methods. All the analyses for optimizing the DG as well as reconfiguration are used the Artificial Bee Colony Optimization technique.

  • In order to sufficiently utilize the potential effectiveness of ATM networks, systematic and effective network management and control systems must be employed. In addition to network design, planning, and call routing techniques used in traditional circuit-switched networks. ATM networks can provide logical VP(Virtual Path) reconfiguration capabilities which can adapt to changes in the network environment. With a proper application of the VP reconfiguration technique, ATM networks can reduce the overhead of frequent network redesign and the overhead of call routing processing. However, ATM VP reconfiguration is a very complex and difficult problem which consists of many facets of optimization subproblems such as VP routing. VP sizing, VP terminating point location and VC routing. Most previous research on the ATM logical network reconfiguration problem dealt with the subset of the problem. This paper mathematically formulates the ATM network reconfiguration problem completely considering all subproblems. Since it is very difficult to derive the optimal solution of the formulated problem, we develop a heuristic method based on a Max min bandwidth allocation principle. We show the feasibility of the proposed heuristic method with a simple example.

  • This paper is described an expert system which performs the network reconfiguration in order to operate distribution systems optimally using heuristic rules. The proposed network reconfiguration is able to not only eliminate abnormal states such as overload of transformers/lines and low voltage violation, but also achieve minimum power loss and optimum load balancing under normal states. In order to apply the network reconfiguration efficiently, an expert system is adopted a best-first tree searching strategy on the basis of heuristics, and is implemented in AI language Turbo PROLOG. Several examples are used to illustrate concepts described above.
