Formulation of long term program of optimization of energy sector has positive effect on economy of country and improving the role of Iran in global energy markets. One of the results of optimization of energy supply sector is improvement of efficiency and reduction of environmental pollutants of energy generation. There are various optimization solutions in energy supply as combined power and heat generation at proper location of distribution network. This thesis is aimed to locate combined generation source via integrated graph algorithm with sensitivity analysis to reduce electric power loss and release capacity and increase economic productivity. The capacity is determined based on applying restrictions of voltage and available levels of candidate locations in the studied networks. The results of simulation are presented in standard 30-bus IEEE network to evaluate efficiency of the above method.
