CE 3.1 Project InformationName of the project:Distributed Generation with Reconductoring for Loss and CostMinimization Using Back Track Search AlgorithmLocation of the project:Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh, IndiaProject Duration:[PLEASE FILL]Organization:University College of Engineering Kakinada (Autonomous)Role and Designation during the time:Electrical and Electronics EngineerCE 3.2 Project BackgroundCE 3.2.1 Characteristics of the projectThe background of the project is based on the usage of electricity and its production,especially specific to countries like India where the demand is currently greater than the actualproduction. This issue is further aggravated by the fact that the production cannot be increasedsignificantly as the resources for the generation of electricity are limited. Hence, we figured thatthe only way to deliver as much electricity as possible to the users if the electricity that isgenerated is conserved by preventing significant losses encountered during distribution.Our work in this project was mainly based on the installation and calibration of DG(distributed generation) units for optimized performance. Furthermore, I tried to find arevolutionary algorithm that will be able to backtrack search optimization especially in the radial
distribution lines. We made some simulations on 85-bus systems in order to research andevaluate the effectiveness of the new backtracking algorithm.CE 3.2.2 Objectives developed for the projectThe objectives that were developed for the project were as follows.To conduct a literature review on the overall topic of the projectTo find optimum size of the DG units in the radial distribution systemTo make suitable selections of conductors to be used in the distribution systemTo make suitable configurations for minimizing the power lossTo make suitable configurations for minimizing cost burden during thedistribution processCE 3.2.3 My area of workI was involved in the project as an electrical engineer and hence, I needed to express mytechnical skills and knowledge for fulfilling the duties allocated to me. During my coursework incollege, I studied about the theories related to the topic and hence, in this project, I needed toapply the knowledge gathered in practical work. I also applied creative design work related toelectrical engineering that helped me to complete all duties with success and gain positivereviews from my supervisors.

In addition, we needed to coordinate and help each other in order tocomplete all the duties in time and with success.In this project, my responsibilities included taking part in the literature review process,designing the algorithm and testing the algorithm with the DG unit. I also needed to documentmy works in the project report and submit it to the supervisor for review and appraisal.
