Reactive power dispatch plays a main role in order to provide good facility secure and economic operation in the power system. Optimal reactive power dispatch (ORPD) is a nonlinear optimization problem and has both equality and inequality constraints. ORPD is defined as the minimization of active power loss by controlling a number of variables. Due to complex characteristics of ORPD, heuristic optimization has become an efficient solver. In this paper, particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm and MATPOWER toolbox are applied to solve the ORPD problem for distribution system with distributed generating (DG) plant. The proposed method minimizes the active power loss in a practical power system as well as determines the optimal placement of a new installed DG. The practical 41-bus, 6-machine power distribution network of Myingyan area is used to evaluate the performance. The result shows that the adjustment of control variables of distribution power network with a new DG gives a better approach than adjustment only the control variables without DG.
