Abstract: This paper shows the results obtained in the analysis of the impact of distributed generation (DG) on distribution losses. The main objective has been to determine if DG whether increments or decrements distribution losses, based on the penetration level and dispersion of DG and on the different DG technologies. Different scenarios with several penetration levels and dispersion of DG have been studied. The special characteristics of different DG technologies have been taken into account. The considered technologies are: combined heat and power (CHP), wind turbines, photovoltaics and some theoretical ones. Real radial distribution feeders have been used.
Keywords: Distributed Generation (DG), Distribution, Losses.

Scope of the Article: Distributed Computing
