Abstract

Numerous potential advantages to the requirements and effectiveness of the supplied electricity can be accomplished by the installation of distributed generation units. In order to take full advantage of these benefits, it is essential to position the Distributed Generation (DG) units in appropriate locations. Otherwise, their installation may have an adverse effect on the quality of energy and system operation. Several optimization techniques have been created over the years to optimize distributed generation integration. Optimization techniques are therefore constantly changing and have been the main attention of many fresh types of research lately. This article evaluates cutting-edge techniques of optimizing the issue of positioning and sizing distributed generation units from renewable energy sources based on recent papers that have already been applied to distribution system optimization. Furthermore, this article pointed out the environmental, economic, technological and regulatory drivers that lead to a rapid interest in the DG system based on renewable sources. A summary of popular meta-heuristic optimization tools discussed in table form with merits and demerits to increase fresh prospective paths to multi-approach that have not yet been studied.
