This paper presents further advances to the low voltage distribution optimization problem by considering micro distributed generation injected by costumers. To this purpose the proposed model presented in [1] has been improved including aspects such as the evaluation of three-phase power losses, system reliability evaluation and mainly the impact of micro distributed generation (micro DG) on the overall process of Low Voltage (LV) network planning. Finally, results are shown on the application of the algorithm on a test and real urban networks.
