The power loss in the radial distribution network is appreciable as compared to transmission network. To reduce the power loss in distribution network which is radial in nature, the solution methodology adopted in this paper is optimal placement of distributed generators (DG). The optimization incorporated is Multi-objective Grey Wolf Optimization (MOGWO). The optimization is accomplished for three different cases. In each case two objective functions are simultaneously optimized to obtain non-dominated solutions using Multi-objective Grey Wolf Optimization. Case (1): To minimize the real power loss and maximize the savings obtained due to DG installation. Case (2): To minimize real power loss and maximum voltage deviation in the network. Case (3): To minimize real power loss and rating of DG installed. MOGWO method maintains an archive which contains pareto-optimal solutions. The archive mimics the behaviour of grey wolves. MOGWO method is verified on radial distribution networks. The effectiveness of the optimization method is proven by comparing the results with other optimization methods available in the literature.
