Voltage instability and power loss are significant problems in distribution Systems (DS). However, these problems are usually mitigated by the optimal integration of distributed generation (DG) units in the DN. In this regard, the optimal location and size of the DGs are crucial. Otherwise, System performance will deteriorate. This study is conducted to place the DGs in the radial DS. Mayfly Algorithm (MA) is used to determine the optimal placement and size of the DGs to minimize power loss, increase voltage stability in radial DS. The simulation results showed a reduction in the percentage of power loss is 69.14% for three PV-type DG unit integration. The corresponding percentage of power loss reduction is 98.09 % for three WT-type DG units by installing DG units to the test System. Similarly, the minimum bus voltage stability improves to 0.959 per unit for three PV type DG unit integration. The VSI after DG allocation increases to 0.989 per unit for three WT type DG units by optimal installing DG units. Comparative studies have been conducted, and the results have shown the effectiveness of the proposed method in reducing the power loss and improving the voltage stability of the DS. The proposed algorithm is evaluated in the IEEE-69 bus radial DS using MATLAB.
