The electrical energy generation companies try always to improve the system performance through reducing the active power losses and that lead the fuel cost is reduced also. One of the way is by incorporate is Distributed Generation (DGs). DGs are becoming more prominent in transmission systems due to increased demand for the electrical energy. The location of DGs sources will have an impact on system losses of the network. This article discusses the application of Sensitivity Analysis (SA) to improve power losses when Distributed Generators (DGs) are used. And by substituting these loss sensitivities, the optimal generation location for minimizing the system loss can be directly obtained. The simulation results on IEEE 30 bus test system indicate that bus 13 is the optimal location of DG based on its negative of partial derivative value.
