This paper introduces a new approach based on a chaotic strategy and a neural network algorithm (NNA), called chaotic-based NNA (CNNA), to solve the optimal distributed generation allocation (ODGA), in the radial distribution system (RDS). This consists of determining the optimal locations and sizes of one or several distributed generations (DGs) to be inserted into the RDS to minimize one or multiple objectives while meeting a set of security limits. The robustness of the proposed method is demonstrated by applying it to two different typical RDSs, namely IEEE 33-bus and 69-bus. In this regard, simulations are performed for three DGs in the cases of unity power factor (UPF) and optimal power factor (OPF), considering single and multi-objective optimization, by minimizing the total active losses and improving the voltage profile, voltage deviation (VD) and voltage stability index (VSI). Compared to its original version and recently reported methods, the CNNA solutions are more competitive without increasing the complexity of the optimization algorithm, especially when the RDS size and problem dimension are extended.
