Installation of Distributed generations (DG’s) offers many advantages to the grid such as reduced transmission and distribution resources, better power quality, increased reliability etc.,. The small generations with low or medium voltage systems have significant importance in power systems as variety of consumers is required at various levels of demand. This paper exhibits different Distributed generations like solar, wind, Biomass power plants and locating these DG’s by using multi objective Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) technique. The selected PSO for identifying DGs for the case study showed with minimal losses. This in turn would benefit the system with lower Investment & Operating costs, and Improve voltage profile at the point of DG penetration.
