Abstract: The reliability of distribution network can be improved with the penetration of small scale distributed generation (DG) unit to the distribution grid. Nevertheless, the location and sizing of the DG in the distribution network have always become a topic of debate. This problem arises as different capacity of DG at various location can affect the performance of the entire system. The main objective of this study is to recommend a suitable size of DG to be placed at the most appropriate location for better voltage profile and minimum power loss. Therefore, this paper presents an analytical approach with a fixed DG step size of 500 kW up to 4500 kW DG to analyses the effect of a single P-type DG in IEEE 33 bus system with consideration of system power loss and voltage profile. Four scenarios have been selected for discussions where Scenario 1: 3500 kW DG placed at node 3; Scenario 2: 2500 kW DG placed at node 6; Scenario 3: 1000 kW DG placed at node 18 and Scenario 4: 3000 kW DG placed at node 7. Results show that all the four scenarios are able to reduce the power loss and improve the voltage profile however Scenario 4 has better performance where it complies with minimum voltage requirement and minimizing the system power loss. © BEIESP.
