Golden Jackal Algorithm for Optimal Size and Location of Distributed Generation in Unbalanced Distribution Networks
The Golden Jackal Optimization algorithm (GJO) is used in this study to address the problem of optimal placement and sizing of single and multiple distributed generators (DGs) on the IEEE123 test system. The proposed approach attempts to minimize the total power loss of the system while respecting the voltage and power limits. The GJO algorithm is a new meta-heuristic algorithm inspired by the behavior of the golden jackal in the wild. The GJO algorithm is used to find the ideal location and sizing of DGs, and the results are compared with those obtained by other meta-heuristic techniques. According to the simulation results, the GJO method outperforms other metaheuristic algorithms in terms of problem-solving, while satisfying all constraints of the system. The proposed approach also demonstrates the effectiveness of the GJO algorithm in the solution of complex optimization problems in power systems
