This paper presents a dynamic planning algorithm methodology which optimizes long-term primary electric distribution network investments considering planning metrics. An algorithm which calculates a representative primary network model of distribution grids, whose primary and secondary networks are intricate, is developed. It is aimed to facilitate assessment of primary distribution network investment requirements and thereby defining grid investment candidates effectively. A planning algorithm, which considers representative primary network model and candidate planning investments as inputs, is developed based on a mixed integer programming (MIP) technique. Some planning metrics are defined in order to technically and economically assess optimum investments along the planning horizon. DIgSILENT PowerFactory (PF) software is utilized in technical analysis to assess impacts of candidate grid investments on technical constraints. The algorithms and planning metrics developed in the study are tested satisfactorily on pilot regions of Akdeniz Electric Distribution Company in Turkey.

Design of looped water distribution networks using a heuristic approach
Ateş, Halil İbrahim; Merzi, Nuri.; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
This study aims to design pipe diameters of a water distribution network using a heuristic approach algorithm. The heuristic approach algorithm aims to maximize the reliability of the network while minimizing the total cost of the water distribution network, which is a multi-objective optimization problem. In a water distribution network, the resilience index is defined as network reliability (Todini, 2000). The cost of the water distribution network is the total cost of the network pipes. In this heuristic...
OPTIMIZATION APPLIED ON REGULATORY AND ECO-FINANCE NETWORKS - SURVEY AND NEW DEVELOPMENTS -
Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Kropat, Erik; Tezel, Aysun; Belen, Selma (2010-05-01)
In this paper we survey recent advances and mathematical foundations of regulatory networks. We explain their interdisciplinary implications with special regard to Operational Research and financial sciences and introduce the so-called eco-finance networks. These networks, originally developed in the context of modeling and prediction of gene-expression patterns, have proved to provide a conceptual framework for the modeling of dynamical systems with respect to errors and uncertainty as well as the influenc...

Optimization of water distribution networks using mixed-integer linear programming
Uzun, Eren; Altan Sakarya, Ayşe Burcu; Department of Civil Engineering (2016)
The present study aims to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the design of water distribution networks by making use of mixed integer linear programming. The developed optimization algorithm considers the minimization of the total cost as the objective function. The total cost of water distribution network is defined as cost of pipes, reservoirs and pumps. Nodal demands, nodal pressure limits and pipe velocity limits are satisfied while optimizing the network. Energy equation is the equality constr...
