Abstract: Distribution system has to meet the demands and to secure sufficient power for all the consumers. This can be achieved by increasing the more number of power units. Distribution generation (DG) causes reduction in power losses, enhances power profile, decreases the cost of generation and also delays the deferring of existing substations. Therefore the future of power generation will be DG. DG at one point can provide solution to the growing problems of the power system and at the other hand they can lead to many problems of the power system. Therefore DG comes with both opportunities and challenges. The advantage and disadvantage of implementing DG in the distribution network depend upon the size and allocation of DG in the distribution system. DGs are of different capacities and are divided into micro, small, medium, and large. Location and size of DG are the two main concerns in installation of DG in the system. In this paper, investigation is done on optimal size of DG in order to obtain minimum losses.
