This paper proposes the hybridization of analytical method and heuristic search for the optimal placement of type-III DGs in power distribution network for reduction of power loss. The type-III DG is capable injecting both real and reactive powers. In this approach the locations are determined by the application of PSO while the sizes of DGs are evaluated by using the analytical method which is based on the exact loss formula. The reduction of power distribution losses has been achieved by compensation of active and reactive powers. The improvement in bus voltage profile and the optimal power factor of the DGs have also been considered. The proposed technique has been tested on a 33-bus test system and the results are compared.
