Including distributed generation (DG) in distribution systems often requires in-depth analysis and planning. This panel paper will present a few issues related to the planning of distributed generation, and will describe how intelligent systems methods can be used to help solve these issues. Investment and operating cost minimization, capacity determination and siting of distributed generators, islanding of power systems with DG, coordination of voltage regulators and capacitors with distributed generators in regulating feeder voltage profiles are a few subjects discussed in the paper.
