Abstract

Distributed Generation (DG) offers many benefits to the distribution networks for instance increase reliability, power losses reduction and voltage improvement. Nevertheless, one of the issues still faced by the utilities is uncertainty to determine optimal output power and location of DG. Improper coordination of the DG can deteriorate the distribution performance. Therefore, many researchers have suggested various tools to compute optimally the DG coordination. Usually, calculation of location and size of the DG are determined separately, which means different method is applied for sizing and location. Thus, it may result the solution trap in local optimum. This manuscript provides a solution to the output power and location of multiple DG sources by using modified Artificial Bee Colony. Furthermore, in the analysis, several case studies with different load profile are presented. The solution is simulated by using MATLAB programming and tested on 33-bus distribution system.
