The rise in electrical power demand and corresponding transmission or distribution loss is affecting the efficiency of power delivery. A new method for loss allocation in radial distribution system based on proportional sharing is proposed. Based on allocated loss, optimal location of distribution generation (DG) is selected. After selecting the location, optimal size of DG is obtained for that location. Loss allocation to DGs is based on formation of two matrices, power contribution matrix and power sharing matrix. Loss share of DGs and loads are decided based on both power injection by DGs and loss minimisation due to presence of DGs. Results of the proposed method are shown on 69 bus radial distribution system.
