The concept of installing dispersed resources in an electric utility distribution or subtransmission system is gaining interest in the industry. Such resources could be photovoltaic cells, wind generation, battery storage, fuel cells or demand-side management solicitations. Research by others has suggested that the benefits of distributed resources could be substantial. However, these distributed benefits are site specific. A method to optimally locate such resources in a meshed network for maximizing the potential benefits is outlined in this paper. The proposed second order algorithm computes the amount of resources in selected nodes to make up a given total to achieve the desired optimizing objectives. The network under consideration could be a transmission, subtransmission, or distribution network. The benefit expressed as a performance index can be the minimization of losses, VAr losses, or loadings in selected lines
