The distributed generation to power distribution lines has become a trend in the world. The reasons behind the increasing use of distributed generation include the high cost of energy, environmental concerns, and the latest advancements in DG technology. Renewable DG sources are preferable to place near load center inject power in the system, hence support the system voltage, minimizing losses, and improve reliability. Location selection is an essential aspect of planning. A Selection method for DG placement with minimization of power loss objective is implemented in this research work. An Analytical technique was adopted here for DG placement with Voltage sensitivity index along with Voltage profile improvement indicator (VPII). A ranking created on voltage sensitivity index and VPII has been obtained for the best placement of DGs. Distribution load flow is implemented for loss calculation. Results and performance of the system are evaluated on33-bus test system.
