Abstract
  This paper presents microgrid (MG) operation constrained to the reliability, flexibility, and environment indices in the presence of distributed generations (DGs) and energy storage systems (ESSs). The proposed scheme minimizes the total expected operating cost of MGs and DGs. It is also subject to alternating ...  Read More

http://dx.doi.org/10.22111/ieco.2021.35777.1304

Abstract
  The present study introduces a new extensive-area ANFIS (Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Interface System)-based method to detect wide area instability and control the time of controlled islanding execution within power systems. The ANFIS parameters are optimized by the PSO method to increase the method’s ...  Read More
