Abstract: The distributed generation (DG) is one of the viable alternatives for reducing the problem of load growth, over loading of lines, quality of supply, reliability of equipment through mitigating power losses. Loss reduction is one of the prime objectives for planning of distributed generation. To improve the performance of the distribution system, optimal placement of distributed generators is critically important as identifying the location and size. Introducing DG’s in distribution networks leads to reduce power loss with distribution loss allocation approach in primary distribution networks. In this paper, optimal placement of DG units using loss allocation approach with Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is proposed. This approach aim to minimize active power loss by placing DG in a radial distribution system by optimizing the objective function based on power loss and cost. The performance of the proposed approach is performed on standard IEEE buses and practical distribution networks.
