Distributed generation (DG) units reduce electric power losses and hence improve reliability and voltage profile. Determination of appropriate size and location of DG is important to maximize overall system efficiency. In this paper, loss index factor method has been presented to determine the appropriate size and proper allocation of DG in a distribution network. Results obtained from this method have been compared with using the repeated load flow method.
