Abstract: Inappropriate selection of location and corresponding size of Distributed Generator (DGs) in electrical network may have increased power losses in the system. Application of incorporating DG in system has eased the problem of high power losses, voltage stability, low reliability and poor power quality. This paper suggests a simple and efficient load flow technique known as direct load flow method to find the optimal allocation of Type-3 DG in the distribution system. The presented method was developed and tested in two distribution networks with varying size and complexities and the effect of size and location of DG with respect to real power losses while maintaining the voltage profile of system within limits is examined with verification and discussed in detail.
