In this research simulations have been carried out on a 10 kV and IEEE 13 node test distribution feeder to show the impact of adding distributed generations (DG) in the medium voltage distribution network. Equations of power line loss coefficients have been derived for both test feeders in order to determine the best possible case. A fuzzy logic controller has been proposed in the IEEE13 node test distribution feeder to determine the amount of DG output to be added in the network on the basis of power supply-demand gap and time of the day. Another fuzzy logic controller is proposed to select the bus where the DG need to be connected using the input of DG amount needed to be installed and distance of generation from the distribution transformer in the power distribution network.
