– In this paper, a novel optimization algorithm is presented for the optimal location and sizing of Distributed Generation (DG) units on distribution systems. For this purpose, a recently based meta-heuristic called Firefly Algorithm (FA) has been employed to minimize the total active power losses. The results show considerably improved in voltage profiles of all the buses and enhance the voltage stability index. The investigations were tested on IEEE 33 bus radial distribution system. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of firefly algorithm. Comparison with another method is also given.
