Abstract: This paper keeps aim to integrate distributed generations(DGs) in radial distribution networks (RDNs) using ABC algorithm. The appropriate nodes of RDN is found out by the well-established loss sensitivity index. The optimal size of DGs are found out by using the ABC algorithm. The optimal integration of DGs not only reduces the loss but also increases the voltage profile and enhances the voltage stability index and hence improves the stability of the system. Here 33-node and 69-node RDNs are considered to implement the proposed method. The outcomes obtained by ABC algorithm have also been compared with that Firefly, PSO and GA algorithms.
Keywords: ABC,FF, GA, PSO, LSF, DG, RDN.
