Formatted abstract
This paper investigates the problem of multiple distributed generators (DG units) placement to achieve a high loss reduction in large-scale primary distribution networks. An improved analytical (IA) method is proposed in this paper. This method is based on improved analytical expressions to calculate the optimal size of four different DG types and a methodology to identify the best location for DG allocation. A technique to get the optimal power factor is presented for DG capable of delivering real and reactive power. Moreover, loss sensitivity factor (LSF) and exhaustive load flow (ELF) methods are also introduced. IA method was tested and validated on three distribution test systems with varying sizes and complexity. Results show that IA method is effective as compared with LSF and ELF solutions. Some interesting results are also discussed in this paper.
