  3. Abstract:
  4. In deregulated power systems, the distribution network operator (DNO) is not responsible for investment in distributed generation (DG) units, and they are just concerned about the best architecture ensuring a good service quality to their customers. The investment and operating decisions related to DG units are then taken by entities other than DNO which are exposed to uncertainty. The DNO should be able to evaluate the technical effects of these uncertain decisions. This paper proposes a fuzzy evaluation tool for analyzing the effect of investment and operation of DG units on active losses and the ability of distribution network in load supply at presence of uncertainties. The considered uncertainties are related to load values, installed capacity, and operating schedule of DG units. The proposed model is applied on a test system and also a real French urban network in order to demonstrate its functionality in evaluating the distribution expansion options
