This article presents an evaluation of the optimal location and dimensioning of distributed generation in electrical energy distribution systems. For such evaluation, the Shuffled Frog-Leaping Algorithm has been considered. In the problem of optimal location and dimensioning, two objectives have been considered: the minimization of active losses and the improvement of the voltage profile. To compare the effectiveness of the implemented methods, IEEE-33 bus test distribution system is used. The correct location and dimensioning of the distributed generation allowed to substantially improve the network voltage profile and reduce losses for the test system.
