Abstract: With the emergences of different types of distributed generators (DGs) into the distribution systems, there is an increasing demand to understand and quantify their impacts on distribution systems such as voltage, reliability, power equality, etc. To implement the comprehensive evaluation, this paper analyzes and proposes multiple indices which reflect the performance of distribution network with DGs and DGs impact on distribution systems. Based on the proposed indices, a comprehensive method, which integrates the analytical hierarchy process (AHP), the principal component analysis (PCA) and the set pair analysis (SPA), is proposed to evaluate DGs planning. AHP and PCA is applied to determine weight factor for each index, while SPA is to obtain the priority of DGs planning schemes as well as analyze the priority stabilization. The proposed indices and evaluation methods have been tested on 20 bus distribution networks with extensively DGs. The assessment results is presented and discussed.


Keywords: Distributed generators planning, Performance indices, Analytical hierarchy process (AHP), The principal component analysis (PCA), The set pair analysis (SPA).
