Distribution network is the closest to the consumer of electricity in the whole of the electric power system (EPS) network. It is as important as other parts of the entire system. Lack of sufficient power to meet the required load demand has aided the popularity of distributed generators within the distribution network in order to argument the available power. However, the point of installation of a distributed generator (DG) is essential, considering the entire EPS security. In this work, inherent power system network (IPSN) is proposed to determine the best position for distributed generator within distribution networks, which results in a minimal loss. Matlab R2018a is deployed as a simulation tool. Six bus IEEE network and radial 12-bus network are used to ascertain the feasibility of the proposed method. Results obtained for both test network are validated through the results from the forward-backward sweep method for distribution load flow study.
