The effects of DG units in reducing the reinforcement costs and active power losses of distribution network have been investigated. In the presented method, the integration of DG units in distribution network is done considering both technical and economical aspects. The strength of the proposed method is evaluated by applying it on a small and a realistic large scale distribution network and the results are compared with analytical classic and other heuristic methods and discussed||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Wiley||Copyright (published version):||2010 John Wiley and Sons, Ltd||Keywords:||Active loss reduction;Distributed generation;DG placement;Genetic algorithm;Immune algorithm||DOI:||10.1002/etep.501||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
