The paper presents a comprehensive literature review on meter placement for monitoring power distribution system. Different algorithms used for solving optimum meter placement problem for distribution system state estimation are discussed in detail. Number of works done in this area and percentage of algorithm utilized are compared graphically. The performance accuracy graph is plotted for different meter placement algorithms. The authors suggest the scope of areas for pursuing the research in state estimation meter placement.
