Classical and Recent Aspects of Power System Optimization presents conventional and meta-heuristic optimization methods and algorithms for power system studies. The classic aspects of optimization in power systems, such as optimal power flow, economic dispatch, unit commitment and power quality optimization are covered, as are issues relating to distributed generation sizing, allocation problems, scheduling of renewable resources, energy storage, power reserve based problems, efficient use of smart grid capabilities, and protection studies in modern power systems. The book brings together innovative research outcomes, programs, algorithms and approaches that consolidate the present state and future challenges for power.

  • Analyzes and compares several aspects of optimization for power systems which has never been addressed in one reference
  • Details real-life industry application examples for each chapter (e.g. energy storage and power reserve problems)
  • Provides practical training on theoretical developments and application of advanced methods for optimum electrical energy for realistic engineering problems
