This paper presents an efficient methodology for integration of Distributed Generation (DG) power into distribution systems, in order to maximize the voltage limit loadability. The proposed methodology is based on continuation power flow (CPF). The effectiveness of the presented methodology is demonstrated in a test distribution system that consists of 85 nodes with integration of different penetration levels of DG power. The proposed method yields efficiency in obtaining more benefits from the same amount of DG power, decreasing the losses and improving the voltage profile. The simulation of the proposed model was carried out using MATLAB/PSAT and the effective performance was analyzed.
