Contemporarily, the development of distributed generations (DGs) technologies is fetching more, and their deployment in power systems is becoming broad and diverse. Consequently, several glitches are found in the recent studies due to the inappropriate/inadequate penetrations. This work aims to improve the reliable operation of the power system employing reliability indices using a metaheuristic-based algorithm before and after DGs penetration with feeder system. The assessment procedure is carried out using MATLAB software and Modified Salp Swarm Algorithm (MSSA) that helps assess the Reliability indices of the proposed integrated IEEE RTS79 system for seven different configurations. This algorithm modifies two control parameters of the actual SSA algorithm and offers a perfect balance between the exploration and exploitation. Further, the effectiveness of the proposed schemes is assessed using various reliability indices. Also, the available capacity of the extended system is computed for the best configuration of the considered system. The results confirm the level of reliable operation of the extended DGs along with the standard RTS system. Specifically, the overall reliability of the system displays superior performance when the tie lines 1 and 2 of the DG connected with buses 9 and 10, respectively. The reliability indices of this case namely SAIFI, SAIDI, CAIDI, ASAI, AUSI, EUE, and AEUE shows enhancement about 12.5%, 4.32%, 7.28%, 1.09%, 4.53%, 12.00%, and 0.19%, respectively. Also, a probability of available capacity at the low voltage bus side is accomplished a good scale about 212.07 times/year.
