To improve the operating performance of a distribution network, on line monitoring is required. For this purpose, sensors (metering devices) are installed. To reduce the number of sensors, state estimation approach can be used to estimate the voltage of buses which do not have sensors. This paper proposes online state estimator for three phase active distribution networks using Neural Network and displayed the results on Geographic Information System (GIS). Neural Network based state estimation is used to estimate the bus voltages by using learning approach from power flow patterns. K-matrix three phase distribution power flow is used in this method as an analytical tool. The K-matrix approach is combined with Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) in handling a Distributed Generation (DG) which is operated as a voltage controlled (PV) bus. The test results show that the proposed method can reduce the number of sensors significantly (almost 50%).
