The recent development in renewable energy systems and the high demand for having clean and low cost energy sources encourage people to use distributed generator (DG) systems. Proper addition and placement of DG units can increase reliability and reduce the loss and production cost. In this paper using Ant Colony method, we developed an optimum placing scheme for DGs. The proposed method is tested on an IEEE 34-shinhe system. Results show that if DGs are able to generate active power, their effectiveness will increase.
