Impact of Distributed Generation on Distribution Systems and its Protection


Distributed Generation (DG) provides an alternative to the traditional electricity sources and can also be used to enhance the present electrical system. Some of the main applications of DG are to provide support and reliability to the power system in a grid-connected mode. The paper is focused on analyzing the installation of DG on distribution network operation including voltage analysis, electric losses and reliability of the system. This paper also investigates the effectiveness of a novel Solid State Fault Current Limiter (SSFCL) in the presence of the Wind-Turbine Power Generation (WTPG) and compares its performance without SSFCL using PSCAD. The SSFCL efficiently protects synchronization of three lines to ground fault and compared with a system without SSFCL.
