Abstract: The Distributed generation and fast operating power electronic devices are attracting more attention due to their effective solution for improvement in the voltage profile, to meet the increasing power consumption, reduction in the power loss, enhancement in the power transfer capacity of the transmission lines, reducing the overloading of the entire network. The optimal placement of DG and FACTs devices plays key role in improvement of the network reliability and voltage stability. In this paper exhaustive load flow analysis is carried out for optimal placement of DG and UPFC. The proposed method is tested on 40 bus distribution network. The obtained results are satisfactory in terms of improvement in the overall performance of the distribution network.
Keywords: Distributed generators; voltage profile; unified power flow controller; power loss; distribution network; reliability; exhaustive load flow analysis; transmission capacity.
