Distributed Generation Technologies, Cost Analysis and Power Quality Issues in India


Objectives: This paper discussed the cost analysis and power quality issues by using distributed generation technology in India. Methods/Statistical Analysis: A new technology known as distributed generation has been adopted which helps in mitigate the demand of power in future. The insertion of DG in distribution system is very helpful in distant areas and small areas where the installation of transmission lines and availability of land is impossible. This paper review on the different types of Distribution technologies, their insertion cost as compared to conventional generation energy sources and power quality problems and how they useful in future to fulfill the demand of power. Findings: Previously conventional sources such as coal, petroleum, natural gas have been used for generation of electrical power. These conventional energy sources are not environmental friendly and their cost is more as compared to non-conventional energy source. As demand is increasing day by day such sources wind energy, solar energy, fuel cell etc. are helpful to fulfill the demand of electrical power. Application/Improvements: DG as a cheap source of electric generation reduces the transmission line cost, transmission losses and it is environmental friendly also and gives benefits to the consumer.
