The optimal placement of DG in the distribution system which gives many benefits such as system power loss and harmonic minimization, voltage profile and stability improvement, environmental friendliness, and reliability enhancement. In this paper, the Newton Raphon’s power flow method with particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm hybrid with genetic algorithm is used for optimal placement of DG in a distribution system. The proposed method is tested and validated in different bus test systems. The proposed optimal placement of DG units is found to be robust and provide higher efficiency for the minimization of the losses and THD and improvement of the voltage profile..
