This paper proposes an analytical methodology to allocate and size active power photovoltaic generation (PVG) units with embedded DC/AC inverter (PVGI) to be integrated as concentrated or dispersed generation in isolated medium voltage electrical grids. The methodology considers multiple objectives: improving the electrical grid voltage profile; reducing active power losses and the diesel generation participation. To validate the proposed methodology, the IEEE 33 and 69 buses networks and an isolated real electrical system were simulated. The results obtained demonstrated that the proposed methodology is effective in providing a solution with improvement in voltage profile, active power losses reduction, diesel generation participation reduction.
