Abstract

Distribution Generation (DG) is a renewable energy in small scale located near to the load in distribution system. Installation of DG in power system can reduce the power loss and improve the voltage profile. For load flow, Newton-Raphson method is used to calculate the power losses and voltage magnitude. This project will use Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) method to test on several cases, without DG installed, single DG, two DG, three DG and 10 DG installed. Varies number of particle, 10, 30 and 50 are used to find the most optimal sizing and location of DG in distribution network. This method has been tested on the standard IEEE-69 bus distribution network using MATLAB R2012a software. The results shows that the most optimize number of DG installed on distribution network is three DG with number of particle N=30. After installing the DG into the distribution system, the power losses of the system is decrease and voltage profile is improved.
