Optimal DG Placement: A Multimethod Analysis

  title={Optimal DG Placement: A Multimethod Analysis},
  author={S. Ratul},
With Power System being restructured in the vision of Smart Grid, it is important now more than ever to find suitable locations to place Distributed Generators (DG). Distributed generators, which may be renewable, are not limited to specific locations as in the case of conventional generators. Several papers have been published that make suggestions on where the optimal location of DG should be in a system. Objectives ranging from loss minimization to total cost minimization have been the… Expand
