    Abstract

    A distribution network is one of the main parts of a power system as it is connected directly to the load center and can act as a microgrid during an islanding operation. The concept of integrating both renewable and distributed energy sources at the distribution level is currently of great interest for power system engineers. Further research by power companies and engineers on applying better techniques to improve the power quality and stability of dynamic devices in a distribution network is ongoing. This paper presents a review of fundamental distribution network architectures, including radial, ring and mesh ones, which considers their types of operation, control and management, growth model, and advantages and disadvantages. The existing networks suffer from various technical and quality issues while they are also vulnerable to the natural disaster and any type of fault in the system. To overcome the problems associated with present networks, a novel architecture of aromatic structure is proposed. Simulations carried out show that this new network can perform better than existing ones in terms of load flow, power quality, reliability and islanding operations. It is also a perfect choice for both a distribution network and microgrid in a cyclone-prone area as it has both overhead and underground network facilities.
