Abstract

System losses, power generation and generation cost are some of the most important factors that significantly influence the efficiency of power systems. Integrating distributed generation systems into distribution networks is one of the effective solutions. Many studies focused on finding the optimal planning of distributed generation systems to get the maximum benefits from them. In this paper, a brief recent review on a variety of heuristic optimization techniques applied in literature to optimally allocate and size distributed generations will be presented.
