Smart grid is the most significant topic in power system due to numerous benefits. Smart grid is the integration of distributed generation. DG plays an important role in different configurations either in grid connected mode or islanded mode. Multiple configurations will result in fault currents this may lead to damage to the existing protective devices. In this paper Fuzzy is used to optimally locate DG and Jaya a new optimization technique is adapted to size the Fault current limiter. Controlled Impedance Fault Current Limiter (CI-FCL) is used to reduce the magnitude of fault current and also avoid false tripping of protective devices. A program is developed in MATLAB 2017Ra to test the IEEE 33 and 69 bus distribution systems the results are compared with the analytical PSO method. The results shows the effectiveness of Jaya Algorithm and also reduces the computational time and no. of iterations.
