In this paper, a novel approach to determine the optimal location and sizing of Distribution Generation (DG) and Distribution STATic COMpensator (DSTATCOM) is analyzed, and the objective function is formulated for minimizing power loss, operational costs and voltage profile enhancement of the system subjected to equality and in equality constraints. Loss sensitivity factor (LSF) is used to pre-determine the optimal location of DG and DSTATCOM. The Bacterial Foraging Optimization Algorithm (BFOA) is proposed to determine the optimal size of the DG and DSTATCOM. In this paper, the DG and DSTATCOM are simultaneously allocated in radial distribution system and it is analyzed with different load models. To check the feasibility, the proposed method is tested on IEEE 33-bus and 119-bus radial distribution system and the results were compared with other existing technique.
