This study presents a method for regulation parameters of a distributed generation (DG) system by means of a hybrid optimisation algorithm. This aims in increasing the stability and reducing the losses and the cost of generation. The hybrid algorithm which includes probability based incremental learning and micro genetic algorithm are tested among other computational intelligence techniques to validate the efficiency of the method by maximising the total social welfare and minimising the network congestion. Simultaneous optimisation of DG parameters which includes DG size, location and type is explored using generation rescheduling and with load curtailment which is vindicated on a modified IEEE distribution system and in a real time Indian utility system. Results show us that the proposed method presents advantages of low computational complexity.
