A review on Artificial Bee algorithm for optimal placement and sizing of D.G to reduce losses
Supreeth A,  Shreya Y S
In order to reduce power losses caused by high current and improve the voltage profile in the network distribution, the introduction of distributed generations also called productions decentralized in distribution network plays an prominent role. The placement and sizing of DGs is essential because wrong choice may jeopardise the system behaviour. To solve this combinatorial problem, an meta-heuristic algorithm known as artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm is proposed in this paper. The paper illustrates the artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithms for optimal location and sizing of distributed generation in a distribution network
Keywords- DG placement, Meta heuristic methods, ABC Algorithm, loss reduction
