Abstract

As renewable energy plants are becoming more widely accessible, one trend of power grids' evolution is decentralization which poses many challenges for grid management. In this paper, we propose a generator allocation method, based on community structure detection, for placing decentralized generators. We take node-generator distance (DG) as an indicator of optimal generators' locations and the underlying community structure is detected with a series of iterating steps. Simulation results show that our method can effectively achieve satisfying allocation solutions as well as enhance the robustness of power systems.
