  • This research is to enhance the quality of power by reduce real power loss in distribution system and enables voltage profile enhancement at each bus. This will achieve by integrating Distributed Generation (DG) in optimal place with suitable size. In order to overcome the disadvantage of sluggish convergence of conventional algorithms the BAT Algorithm (BA) is used. In this paper the week buses are finding by using Backward/Forward (BW/FW) sweep approach based on real power loss. Later by using BA approach determination of optimal capacity and location will be done. This optimal size and location will leads to great minimization in real power loss and improvement of voltage at each bus. In this research the wind energy and Photo Voltaic (PV) energies are consider as DGs. This research is to determine the advantage of the proposed analysis on IEEE-69 radial bus using MATLAB software. The results were evaluated with the GSA approach existing in literature. Finally simulation outcomes prove that the proposed approach performance is superior in enhancing the power quality by optimal placement of DG and capacity of the DG.
