The introduction of new energy carriers, such as natural gas and district heating, to energy systems dominated by electrical power will certainly relieve stress on the power system. Some of the end uses initially served by the power system will be gradually decoupled and served by alternative energy carriers. As a result, the specific customer interruption costs and load profiles will change. In this paper, we analyze how the optimal level of switchgear in electric power distribution systems is affected by such changes. The proposed optimization method is based on a genetic algorithm and takes into account the constrained network capacity.
