Abstract—Distributed generation (DG) application has received increasing attention during recent years. The impact of DG on various aspects of distribution system operation, such as reliability and energy loss, depend highly on DG location in distribution feeder. Optimal DG placement is an important. This paper presents a new methodology using artificial bee’s conoly algorithm (ABC) for the placement and size of Distributed Generators (DG) in the radial distribution systems. The proposed method is tested in standard IEEE 33 bus test system and the results are presented.
Index Terms—Radial distribution network, distributed generators, artificial bee colony algorithm, power loss.
