This paper examines the impact of distributed generation to loss reduction in power distribution networks. In specific, the way that penetration level and allocation of PV units in a distribution medium voltage feeder affects power losses is investigated. Different approaches, regarding PV units placement across the feeder and their capacity, are analyzed and useful conclusions regarding the penetration level of PV units and their optimal placement across distribution feeders for loss reduction are derived.
