Abstract: In this paper, a novel approach using approximate reasoning is used to determine suitable candidate nodes in a distribution system for capacitor placement. Voltages and power loss reduction indices of distribution system nodes are modeled by furzy membership functions. A fuzzy expert system (FES) containing a set of heuristic rules is then used to determine the capacitor placement suitability of each node in the distribution system. Capacitors are placed on the nodes with the highest suitability. a new design methodology for determining the size, location, type and number of capacitors to be placed on a radial distribution system is presented. The objective is to minimize the peak power losses and the energy losses in the distribution system considering the capacitor cost. Test results have been presented along with the discussion of the algorithm.
