The digitalization of the power system is modifying how the system is planned. The transmission network is highly automated and digitized, but it covers only 3% of the kilometers of the European electricity networks. The remaining 97% is covered by the distribution networks, which are significantly less monitorized and mainly radial, making more difficult to restore the service.
In this project it is developed a model to improve the resiliency of large-scale distribution networks, while minimizing the cost of the installations. A multi-objective optimization is implemented using meta-heuristics. The system is comprised of photovoltaics, batteries and smart switches, which are optimally located in the network and sized.
