Abstract—There is increase in the integration of Distributed Generation (DG) into the distribution network to meet ever increasing demand. Many studies suggested that with proper integration of DG will improves the voltage profile; reduce the losses of the network. However without any modifications in the distribution network the DG integrating capacity is restricted due to the voltage limit violation, fault levels and power flow constraints. So this paper aims to address the new approach of coordinated optimization of the DG capacity with optimal use of the distribution network. Genetic Algorithm (GA) is used to optimize the DG capacity and to find the best radial path that is the feeder reconfiguration is done by using GA. Comprehensive case studies are illustrated in this paper to explain the proposed method.

Index Terms—Distributed generation, Network reconfiguration, Genetic algorithm
