    Abstract :

    Abstract- This paper presents a novel method for optimal location and sizing of distributed generation (DG) unit. The objective of this paper is to curtail the total line losses of the radial distribution network, the cost of investment and payback period are calculated for different renewable sources of generation using cost benefit analysis. For setting up of DG unit the Improved Analytical (IA) Expressions is used. The optimal sizing of the sources has also been carried out using Harmony Search Algorithm for better voltage profile and reduced network power loss in the radial distribution system. Harmony search algorithm is concept from natural musical performance processes. In music improvisation, each musician plays within possible pitches to make a harmony vector. If all the pitches create good harmony, the musician saved them in memory and increases good or better harmony for next time. To check the feasibility, the proposed approach is tested on 10, 33 and 69 bus radial systems
