Abstract—In recent years, the application of Distributed Generators (DG) is increasingly growing in the
power systems. Moreover, it is predicted that it will play a significant role in future distribution
systems. Nevertheless, incorporating DG into the distribution system alters the structure of the
distribution system. This change could have either positive or negative impact on the system
reliability which could be determined by DG’s size and location. This paper proposes sequential
Monte Carlo simulation to evaluate the reliability indices. Moreover, the Genetic Algorithm (GA) is
utilized to determine the optimal location and size of DG based on reliability indices. The objective
function of the aforementioned optimization algorithm is the loss minimization and confining
within the voltage constraints. This paper presents electric system reliability analysis. Additionally,
the optimal size and location of DG is determined with considering the loss and voltage
constraints. Moreover, by employing Monte Carlo simulation, the distribution of reliability indices
is calculated in addition to the average and expected values.
