Integration of Renewable Distributed Generations (RDGs) such as photovoltaic (PV) systems and wind turbines (WTs) in distribution networks can be considered a brilliant and efficient solution to the growing demand for energy. This article introduces new robust and effective techniques like hybrid Particle Swarm Optimization in addition to a Gravitational Search Algorithm (PSOGSA) and Moth-Flame Optimization (MFO) that are proposed to deduce the optimum location with convenient capacity of RDGs

First, the Loss Sensitivity Factors (LSFs) are employed to select the most candidate buses for RDGs location. In the second stage, the PSOGSA and MFO are implemented to deduce the optimal location and capacity of RDGs from the elected buses. The proposed schemes have been applied on 33-bus and 69-bus IEEE standard radial distribution systems.
