Abstract [en]

The optimum design of power system components is becoming a relevant topic in power system studies. Genetic algorithms (GAs) are considered as a proper approach for optimisation problems in which non-linear elements are involved. Several trends are presently leading GAs to a new level; for instance, its combination with parallel computing can facilitate the solution of problems where individual evaluations of the fitness function require an important computational effort. This study presents a procedure based on a MATLAB-EMTP application and the usage of a multicore environment for the optimum selection of hybrid high-voltage DC (HVDC) circuit breaker parameters; the goal is to obtain a transient response of the hybrid design with voltages, currents and fault clearance times within specified limits.
