Performance of Power System Estimators have been improved with the development of Phasor Measurement Units (PMU). By considering the contribution of PMUs in transmission system, it is anticipated that in future it will be used in distribution networks. Arrival of micro-PMU (μPMU) make it attainable to use it for distribution system. Finding optimal location of μPMUs are the first step before implementing it in distribution system. Since PMUs are generally implemented in transmission system so mostly Algorithms related to OPP is not considered distribution networks radial topology. In this Article, Depth Search Algorithm and a proposed Hybrid Depth Search Algorithm are used to solve optimal placement problem. IEEE radial distribution feeder integrated with distributed energy sources are considered for examination of proposed placement methods and results indicate that proposed hybrid depth search algorithm overcomes the drawback of depth first search algorithm of not providing optimal solution
