To reduce power disruptions in power distribution systems, it is important to install distributed generation (DG) in the distribution systems. DG in distribution systems help to improve power quality and reliability of the networks, provided the DG units are placed at the best location with required size. There are various DG placement techniques that can be used to determine optimal location and size of DG in a distribution network. In this paper an extensive review of the art models and methods of existing optimal DG placement based on analytical optimization and heuristic optimization have been discussed. The algorithm, description, advantages, disadvantages and applications of optimization techniques have been discussed with a comparison between analytical and heuristic technique.
