The current development of distribution systems towards the smart grid paradigm is sided by the reformulation of the classical objective functions for distribution system operational and expansion planning. This reformulation takes into account the increasingly significant role of distribution automation and distributed generation (DG) connected to the distribution systems, as well as the possibility of formulating multi-objective optimisation problems. This paper recalls the key aspects of the evolution in progress as presented in the recent literature, and illustrates some basic concepts referring to the DG location and sizing by means of the results obtained on a tutorial example.
