Abstract: Introduction of the distributed generation system is the boon to the existing distribution network. Distributed generations are placed near the load centers and hence reduce the transmission losses. Distributed generation systems are also beneficial for voltage profile improvement, minimizing the real and reactive power losses of the existing network. Renewable distributed generation systems has various ecological benefits. In this paper, we are working on multiple distributed generation penetration for the real and reactive power loss minimization and voltage profile improvement. There are four kinds of distributed generation systems exist based on their power supplying capability. Optimal penetration of multiple distributed generation system will be done at the buses having the lowest voltage sensitivity index. Optimal sizing of the multiple distributed generation system will be considered for the sizes showing maximum power loss reduction. This multiple penetrations will be tested at the IEEE 33 bus radial distribution network. For load flow analysis forward-backward sweep method will be applied at the IEEE 33 bus radial distribution network.
