Abstract

Determining the location of capacitor banks in an urban or rural distribution network represents benefits for the distribution company by providing improvements in the power factor, the reduction of reagents in the network and the decrease in voltage drops. A two-phase heuristic method has been used to carry out the study in a distribution feeder of the urban-rural type, and thus to finding an optimal solution location of the fixed and variable capacitor banks with very favorable results for the system.
