Nowadays, new developments in electrical power generation technologies enable the electrical power to be generated by relatively small-scale power plants close to the consumption centers, i.e. directly connected to the distribution networks. This distributed generation (DG) seems to offer many advantages compared to the traditional vertical power-generation structure, i.e. a small number of large-scale power plants situated far from the consumption centers. DG facilitates a large-scale electrical power generation from renewable energy sources suiting the environmental concerns and the use of new more efficient technology of power generation. Furthermore, DG may lead to a reduction of losses related to the transmission of energy, since the electrical power generation is situated closer to the consumption centers, so that less power is transmitted through the transmission lines. This paper focuses on this last potential advantage of DG implementation, i.e. the reduction of the power losses in the transmission network.
