In modern power systems, deregulation and restructuring have created increased interest in distributed resource planning, as they are expected to play an important role in improving the operational efficiency. The distribution systems are constantly being faced with an ever growing power demands and usually operates on the verge of its loadability limit. To operate the distribution system under such critical conditions the integration of distributed resource improves the reliability of supplying power by improving voltage stability and reducing the power losses. Therefore, in order to strengthening the power quality and reliability the power utilities need to ensure the optimum size and location of distributed resources. This paper considered the effect of distributed resource placement on voltage stability and the results are demonstrated on an IEEE 33-bus radial distribution system.
