Abstract: This Distributed Generations (DGs) represent an efficient option for overcoming problems and challenges of power utilities such as loss reduction, load growth, reliability improvement and greenhouse gas effect reduction. Appropriate sitting and sizing of DGs play a remarkable role in loss reduction. In this paper, a new effective method for DGallocation is proposed that has more ability for loss reduction during system operation. In this method, the reconfiguration as a new subject has been added to the former DG allocation algorithms, so different possible configurations are considered for DG placement problem. In the other words, DG allocation and reconfiguration are done simultaneously. Also, to overcoming time-consuming of reconfiguration TLL-based reconfiguration is presented in this paper. In this reconfiguration method, we propose a profitable solution for finding all possible loops, based on two TLL and CT / M matrix calculations. This propose approach is applied to both test and real networks. All proposed procedures are programmed in the DIgSILENT program using DPL. The simulation results demonstrated the practical benefits of the proposed approach
