This paper studies the design of reactive power supply of microgrids. The problem can be stated as follows: for a given microgrid, we seek an optimum allocation of reactive power sources so that adequate voltages can be maintained during grid connected operation as well as one or more topologies of islanded operation. A genetic algorithm is used to develop the optimal allocation.
