The Distributed Generation (DG) which are now used popularly have a positive impact on distribution system. The DG connected in the system are more beneficial only if its optimal size and site are considered i.e. they are placed at appropriate position with suitable size and their technology customs conventional and non-conventional energy sources to generate power. Installing the DG at optimum location enhances the system performance as well as provides cost effective solution as it improves the reliability of distribution system, lessen the losses, and improves the voltage profile and power quality of the system. This paper reviews the objectives along with optimization techniques to present best solution in order to gain maximum benefits.
