Abstract: Due to deregulation, exponential growth in the electricity demand, integration of renewable energy sources, lack of analytical computing facility and expansion of network increases the complexity with poor operation of the network. Existing analytical computing facility is failed to give efficient and accurate results for secure operation of the distribution network. Many researchers are working to give potential solution to improve the performance of network operation considering the real time variables. In this paper minimization of power loss is chosen as objective function. Considering the network parameters the optimal placements with different combination of DTC, STATCOM and line reconfiguration are tested on IEEE-15 bus system using Mi Power simulation package. The obtained result shows more than 50% power loss reduction, which leads to efficient and stress free operation of the distribution networks.
