  4. Abstract:
  5. Due to the deregulation and restructuring in many countries, it is expected that amount of small-scale generations connected to the distribution networks increase. So it is necessary that impact of these kinds ofgenerators on VoltNar control would be investigated. This paper presents a new approach for VoltNar control in distribution system with Distributed Generation (DG) and it has shown that DG can improve the entire performance of network, by means of better controlling of the system and decreasing losses in network. In this approach Genetic Algorithm (GA) has been used as the optimization method where the amount of Dispersed Generation and its controlling parameters, Voltage regulators situation and status of Load Tap Changers and finally the amount of switched capacitor has been assumed as state variable. This method is tested on IEEE 34 bus radial distribution test feeders and the results are presented and it is shown that in the case of selection of correct location for DG, the system losses can be decreased up to 70%.
